Michigan Loses Another Player To Transfer, This Time It’s An RB

I’m hoping Justice has peace!

Good for him, everybody should go where they can get playing time.  These kids don’t all want to leave, but they realize they are buried on the depth chart and are usually looking for one last shot at an NFL career.  This is also a coaching staff that neither Justice Hayes nor Blake Countess signed up to play for at Michigan.  Good luck to these guys!

Michigan Fans Concerned About The Harbaugh “drama?” Please!

Print

I received a tweet from a big Michigan supporter last night who wondered “Does this much drama always surround him ? Like when he was at Stanford and San Diego ?”
When I asked him to explain himself, I got this…. “The Detroit high school coaches seem to have it out for him … The sec coaches are all hating . The petty bs hating that’s going on”

I’ll admit, I’ve not even considered the issue as I haven’t heard anything negative about Harbaugh from the PSL end and only the satellite camps appear to be an issue with the SEC coaches.

harbsI don’t see or hear anything negative about Harbaugh from the PSL or any Michigan High School Coaches, while most admit they don’t know Jim very well and are establishing relationships with the new staff at Michigan, they are all aware of Tyrone Wheatley. Wheatley is PSL royalty and he has had no problem gaining credibility and establishing relationships in the PSL, he’ll get his share of kids out of Detroit. The only issue that still lingers is the Mike Weber issue with Urban Meyer, I’m dubious about any long term negative effects for Ohio State, but time will tell as OSU is in on a few top 10 players in the State of Michigan. I’m thinking everybody will have a short memory when the coach of the National Champions comes calling.

As for Dantonio in the PSL and the State of Michigan, he isn’t exactly tearing it up as some would have you believe, he’s just doing what he always does, he’s grabbing a bunch of three star kids who fit his system and he’s only scored one kid so far from the PSL, a kid who isn’t ranked in the top 10. For their part, Michigan has #7 in Michigan (Falcon) and #11 (Reese). I wouldn’t call that significant progress for Sparty….yet.

Personally, I don’t know why any B1G fan would care if the SEC coaches are bitching. Why concern themselves with the biggest group of cheating, hypocrites in America? These guys have been skirting the rules for decades and it went unchallenged. The B1G finally has a group of coaches who are going to compete and B1G fans take is as drama? Stop! The B1G finally has the stomach for the fight, embrace it. It appears the B1G is no longer content to sit on its ass while the SEC wins National Championships.

For Michigan’s part, the days of apologizing are over, the have a coach who will win and win big, with no apologies. Jim Harbaugh isn’t going to apologize if his team jams a stake in the turn at sparty stadium and he certainly isn’t going to back down from the SEC. Either the B1G coaches are on board or they aren’t, those who aren’t will likely be asking Harbuagh “what’s your deal” very soon.



Dennis Norfleet Dismissed From Michigan Football Team

Norfleet

Dennis Norfleet has been kicked off the Michigan football team for violating team rules.

Martin Luther King High School football coach Dale Harvel told MLive on Tuesday that Norfleet has been dismissed from Michigan’s program by coach Jim Harbaugh.

“Evidently he was dismissed from the team, Dennis informed us he was no longer on the team,” Harvel said Tuesday afternoon. “Something about a disciplinary thing between him and coach Harbaugh. Whether it was academics or something internal, I’m not sure. He just said they had a disagreement and he was let go.”

There are reports that Norfleet skipped multiple final exams.

Local Report Claims Harbaugh Is Already “Rubbing People The Wrong Way” At Michigan

I just received this tweet.

 

When I saw the tweet at midnight I knew immediately the report came from Channel 4’s “Clubhouse Confidential” with Rob Parker.  How did I know, because it’s the kind of ridiculous reporting that Rob Parker has been know for his whole career. Remember, this is the guy who was fired for erroneously claiming RG3’s teammates thought he was a “cornball brother” for dating a white girl and falsely claiming MSU QB Kirk Cousins was involved in a brawl while at Michigan State.  It was later discovered that Cousins was in fact with his family at the time of the alleged brawl.

Harbaugh This is the type of report that destroys any credibility for Rob Parker had left. He’s a known bomb thrower who has seen his career die since the RG3  episode.  He is such a pariah in the sports world that NOBODY except channel 4 will even give him the time of day.  His friends tell me he is deeply  distraught over his employment situation.

 This latest Parker episode is sadly one last grasp for a guy who is simply unemployable, I’m guessing channel 4 will get huge backlash for this report as  there is absolutely ZERO truth to it.  Rob Parker is not a bad guy, I’ve known him for years and I’ve known him to play fast and loose with the facts to  further his agenda.  It has happened many times in the 20 years since I first met him, he’s a damaged guy looking to make a name for himself in an  industry that just doesn’t believe or value what he says anymore.  I can’t believe he even has the opportunity to deliver this stuff on WDIV. They clearly have no clue how destroyed his reputation is at this point in his career.   As a matter of fact, NOBODY with a decent reputation in Detroit wants to work with him in any capacity.  He is toxic. 

I’m pretty sure I know who Parker is talking too and I can tell you it’s a guy who was’t retained when Harbaugh took over the Head Coaching position at Michigan.  One disgruntled ex-employee isn’t a “movement.” I can also tell you that Rob Parker has zero connections within the Michigan football program, he doesn’t attend games and NOBODY even knows him in Ann Arbor.  I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM AT A MICHIGAN GAME, EVER! This report is an out and out fabrication from a guy who is a pro at it.    If channel 4 and 105.1 think Rob Parker is the way to go, they have zero chance of gaining credibility with the Detroit audience, sports fans don’t want fabrication, they want real information.

I’m not here to tell you Harbaugh is perfect, because he isn’t, but EVERYBODY I’ve talked to associated with Michigan thinks Jim Harbaugh is doing everything exactly right in Ann Arbor.

I’m leaving an open invitation to Rob Parker right here to come on my podcast this week to defend these allegations, he will ignore it because he knows I will destroy this narrative with fact and call him out as a fraud.  He knows my number and when he reads this (and he will read it) he can get a hold of me to set up a time.  If is doesn’t happen, you know it was a complete and total fabrication.

Ignore this report, it’s the last gasp of a man’s dying career.
