Default Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington are no longer with the team.

Nothing from the kids themselves but from Michigan Coach Rodriguez.

Hey Ryan you will be glad to hear Mallett gone as well. Now get Prior damn it.

Its a shame those boys will have wait a year to play. Seems to me that if your coach quites on you, the player should have a one time right to transfer.

Cool Re: Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington are no longer with the team.

Kind of odd the way he seems disconnected with Arrington and Manningham. Wonder what that is all about.

Hey, I want Michigan to be a strong program again. I think a weak Michigan has made for a weak ohio State.

I'm neutral about Prior. Apparently we can't win a championship with or without a star QB.

Arrington and Manningham will be entering the NFL draft from the way that is put.

You can win a championship. You just need no top SEC teams to be in the championship game.

Yep I'm with ya on this one. Need to get Culberson and some of our congress people on it. Coach goes, all letters of intent are null and void. Then the former school could sue for breach of contract and damages.

Easier solution - restrict when coaches can be courted and/or leave. Make it standard in all NCAA contracts.

If the NCAA and major conferences were in, the coaches would have no choice.

Default Re: Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington are no longer with the team.

which is why that would never happen, there's no incentive for the entire NCAA to join in on such a ridiculous clause in a contract.

Violation of the commerce clause. Can't retirct the movement of the coaches.
All you can do is hold them accountable for the current contract broken.

The players have no controll currently of the process. They are prety much as I understand it psedo indentured servants.

Looks like Manningham is NFL bound as well as Arrington. Mario def has 1st round talent.

Kind of makes you wonder whats going on behind closed doors at UM. The Rodriguez era is starting off on an odd foot.

Default Re: Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington are no longer with the team.

not really that odd, both players are good enough to have decent draft grades. and perhaps they felt they wouldn't get a ton of catches in Rodriguez's offense.

and Mallett didn't like the hiring at all from the getgo, that much is obvious.

I've heard Mallet is an a-hole.

IMO, neither one of them are first round talent.

Rumor is that Mallett is going to Arkansas.

A&M is his second choice though, I believe.
