Drew Sharp Sucks

(I know, I know, it's already painfully clear).

Everyone's favorite Michigan alum-cum-hackjob Detroit sportswriter, Drew Sharp, is at it again. On January 12, Sharp wrote a column entitled "Michigan coach must beat Ohio State to nation's No. 1 recruit Terrelle Pryor." A mere 15 days later, with nothing having changed in the recruiting world of either Michigan or Ohio State, he comes up with this gem: "Michigan landing super recruit Terrelle Pryor would be an overrated victory."

"OK," you may say to yourself, "maybe the titles are not accurate representation of the content of the articles." You would be wrong. From the first article:

[Rodriguez] must keep Pryor away from Jim Tressel.

He must do whatever it takes.

From the second?

There will be unbridled exhilaration within Michigan Message Board Nation should Rich Rodriguez secure premier quarterbacking prospect Terrelle Pryor on Feb. 6. Pryor likely will start from Day 1, but it's unrealistic to expect anything but a struggle as he adapts to the college game while the Wolverines collectively adapt to a new offensive philosophy.
Certainly sounds like a situation in which Michigan must do "whatever it takes." Sharp goes on to admit that landing Pryor would be a victory of sorts, but the clear message is that Pryor is not imperative to Michigan's recruiting efforts.

Having come to expect this kind of crap from Sharp, I guess it's no surprise that he would write something so dumb.

    Drew Sharp is not an alum. He attended but could not graduate.

    Any source for that? Everything I've ever seen has said he's a graduate of Michigan.
