Saw this coming a mile away. He's a pro style QB, and has no business running a spread offense. Would have likely been #3 on their depth chart anyway behind Forcier and Robinson. Plus, he sucks.

Word is he's thinking Eastern Michigan (3 miles down the road, but horrendous MAC school for football) or a PAC 10 team. Though he says in the article he hasn't picked anywhere yet.


Quarterback Threet leaves U-M, destination unknown

Quarterback Steven Threet, who started eight games for Michigan last fall, is leaving the program.

"I've decided to transfer from the University of Michigan," Threet said, reciting from a prepared statement during a telephone conversation Sunday. "I have requested and received my release. I do not yet know where I will continue my collegiate career and will have no further comment until that decision is made."

This is not the first transfer for Threet, an Adrian native who began his collegiate career at Georgia Tech, then transferred to Michigan.

Threet sat out the 2007 season and played last fall for the Wolverines, who went 3-9 during coach Rich Rodriguez's first season.

Last season, Threet, a 6-foot-6, 230-pound redshirt freshman, made eight starts and played in 10 games. He threw for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns, but he was affected by lingering effects of a concussion suffered in the Purdue game late in the season, and injuries to his elbow and shoulder. Threet did not travel to the final regular-season game at Ohio State because of a slight shoulder separation. Nick Sheridan made the other four starts.

With Threet's departure, Michigan faces the 2009 season with an enormous question mark at quarterback. Sheridan will be a junior, and little-used backup David Cone, also a junior, returns.

Michigan signed dual-threat quarterbacks, Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson to its freshman class. Their style of play better fits Rodriguez's spread offense.

Forcier enrolled last month so he can participate in spring drills in March.

How did Michigan do in recruiting this year? Can't remember hearing any good news about them.

Michigan football died when they lost Terrell Pryor. That really set them years back. He was a perfect fit for that system. Now they aren't going to get the right QB in there for at least two more years, get ready for more losing UM Fans.

can't lose what you didn't have. Pryor was never going to Michigan.

But we got two perfect QBs for our system in Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson. Both were 4* recruits, and every analyst admits that the only reason Tate is not a 5* is his height (6') Forcier is the most accurate QB in his class, and has the best mechanics.

They'll be fine with RR there. Just give them a few years.
