All Your Quarterback Are Belong To Us

It figures that I'd say something incredibly stupid at the very end of an earlier post about Michigan fans abstaining from panic until such time that Rich Rodriguez's own 2008 and 2009 football recruits hit the exits. Well, this particular recruit has been actually shown the exits by the coach, so it's not exactly the same thing as the AHhhh...RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!-tactic employed by Boren and Wermers.

Former backup quarterback and slot receiver Justin Feagin has been dismissed from the Michigan football team for violating team rules.

The loss of Justin Feagin is probably not going to impact Michigan's upcoming football season one iota.

The Wolverines are not exactly stacked at quarterback, but with Tate Forcier, Denard Robinson and Nick Sheridan, there's enough talent or experience to get by well enough this fall. Feagin was a 2 star, 93rd ranked QB in the freshman class of 2008.

The slot receiver position, which had become Feagin's new football vocation ever since Nick Sheridan beat him out for the second string QB role last year, is stacked. The Wolverines still have Roy Roundtree, Terrance Robinson, Je-Ron Stokes in the lineup, plus a long laundry list of outside receivers and backup running backs that could play slot.

I liked Feagin as a quarterback, but by about the 3rd game of season I decided to stop wasting all of my time thinking about why in the hell Sheridan was getting so many reps under center while Feagin was wasting away on the sidelines.

It's a shame to see poor judgement take Mr. Feagin away from Michigan. Wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

It never ceases to boggle my mind that guys at schools all over the country throw away gift-wrapped opportunities for a fully-paid college education for completely idiotic reasons. Whatever Feagin did, you can bet it was stupid, and hardly worth throwing away a chance at a degree from Michigan. I'm way beyond having any sympathy for these kids. I feel it more for their parents, who are much more likely to be aware of the missed opportunity.
