    If Michigan can get the high school phenom Terrelle Pryor signed, then Mallet will be just a distant memory like Scott Dreisbach. Rodriguez does need to see if he can at least convince Manningham to stay...I read that his father indicates that he hasn't made up his mind yet and reports are false that he is bolting to the NFL.

    Those Arrington catches in the Capital One Bowl game has given AA the visions of the NFL...as he has reading his own press clippings:)

    Terrelle Pryor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It was reported that Terrelle originally had narrowed his collegiate choices down to Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, Penn State, Oregon, and Texas. Pryor stated that Michigan was once again one of his favorites after Coach Rodriguez phoned him of his departure to coach the Wolverines.[4].

    Rodriguez said that Arrington and Manningham missed the team meeting along with Mallett and that they are not currently on the team. I think it was either in Free Press or News.

    So here is the QB situation right now:



    Are any of these dudes viable replacements if Pryor isn't recruited?

    David Cone? He used to have a good fastball.

    Nick Sheridan ...son of Nicollette?

    Steven Threet?, if he had an a in his name he could be one of the 14 children that former NBA baller Sedale Threet supposedly fathered?

    arrington is nuts if he thinks he'll be drafted anywhere in the first 4 rounds or receive significant playing time his first year, if he makes a team at all. he would've benefited a lot by becoming a bigger role in the Michigan offense with Manningham leaving

    Another situation where a scout has promised him a big payday based on some spectacular catches and his family and boyz(posse/entourage)are looking to cash in early.

    I remember him slightly in the 2006 season, and he was very good this past season, but you are correct, are those two years of experience enough for someone other than Matt "WR" Millen to pick him in the first 4-5 rounds??:sssh:

    I agree on Arrington hog.

    wow...the mighty Michigan football heritage looks to be unraveling. Rodriguez is gonna have a tough job proving his worthiness.

    He'll probably get off to a better start than Lloyd did last year.

    Either of us would be lucky to be able to predict the wins our respective teams will achieve this coming season.........Probably couldn't do it to within 2 victories..........Both teams could go either way........IMHO :)

    Well at least he didn't keep us hanging forever, stringing us along thinking maybe we were in the running...I would have hated that ;)

    Wow. Not a good start for Rod. If he had to do it all over again, I bet he wished he tried harder to keep Mallet. If MSU gets this thing turned around here soon, UM could be facing some serious trouble. UM can't afford for Rod to be a bust. I will consider it even if OSU takes the next three games. Those Cooper years were horrendous so we still have a little catching up to do in my opinion.

    Picking OSU over UofM? This kid is obviously not a good decision maker. Sounds like we lucked out.

    He said he liked Michigan and new coach Rich Rodriguez, but felt that he has a better shot at making it to the NFL by going to Ohio State.

    My three points on the subject> Are the SAT/ACT standards higher at U-M than OSU? Did Tressul's track record outshine Rodriguez's? and finally did he do a history check on the Michigan QB's who made it to the NFL compared to the OSU QB's

    not to mention all of the RB & DB if he gets relegated to that position:)

    OSU
    Art Schlicter
    bobby Hoying
    Joe Germiane
    Troy Smith

    None of these guys had a significant impact in the NFL other than Art's gambling issues:sssh:

    It's probably better for him to so into an established system than one where they are going through a big transition. That must have been a factor in his decision making.
