The Michigan blog-o-sphere filled up yesterday with the hot rumor that Sam McGuffie is leaving Ann Arbor. At first I thought this was just a new nasty rumor designed to deliver yet another swift kick to my gut while I am lying on the ground in pain.
My response: WHAT ? Why do we ever recruit kids from the south ? How could this happen ? When will this nightmare stop ? Why do the college football gods hate me sooooo much ? At what time in the future does Jim Tressel's deal with devil expire ?
But once again there is more to the story: Apparently, on his way home for a family funeral Sam McGuffie's plane to Houston had a stop in Ohio and Justin Boren ate him.
Seriously, Sam McGuffie is an 18 year old kid. He is likely very homesick and the weather in Ann Arbor in November sucks. I hope he chooses to stay at Michigan. If not, I wish him the best of luck. I know that both Baylor and Texas A&M would love to have him.
