Apparently He Didn't Appreciate the Practice Special

Kevin Newsome has decommitted from Michigan as per Scout (info in header). While this doesn't necessarily mean that Newsome will go elsewhere, it is obviously not a good sign. Luckily for Michigan, even if Newsome does decide to go elsewhere there are two other high caliber guys (Tate Forcier and Eugene Smith) who are still interested and available.

More info later.

Non-Informative Update:
For those of you sad about Newsome, hopefully this helps:

    Yeah, I won't sweat this unless we get don't get another QB before signing day. But I don't see that happening since there seems to be plenty of interest with a few other recruits.

    Hope he finds a nice school where he feels he is happy, and I wish him the best wherever he ends up.

    Are you crazy? A) I am bitter and I now hate Newsome for all the BS he spewed about how he "was blue" F that. B) He may take McNeal away from us as well, how would that go over? C) We have a bunch of awesome 5'6" three star guys AWESOME!!!! D) o$u is going to own the shit out of us for years and I hate my life E) Tigers suck, Pistons are always a let down, Lions don't get me started, Michigan 3* recruits forever <3 <3 <3 lame!!!1!!

    i wouldn't sweat losing mcneal out of this, he's much closer with beaver than he was with newsome

    Forcier seems like he's been waiting for this.
    We'll have a pair of good QBs either way, the way I look at it. Newsome may have been the better ranked, but I'd rather have someone who loves Michigan, and wants nothing more to play for the Maize and Blue.

    Forcier seems like he wants to be a Michigan Man.

    Also, that video... wow... JoPa... that last clip... just...
    Creepy.

    I was going to cry about Newsome, but man, I can't stop laughing about JoPa at the end of that vid.

    #2 - You know Mike Hart, Braylon Edwards and Alan Branch were all 3 stars right?

    According to rivals: 1 five star, 7 four stars, and 6 three stars (one of whom is a kicker). And of those three stars, only one (Teric Jones) is under 6 ft. tall.

    We still have a 4 star QB who is going to enroll early (Beaver), and Forcier is coming to the Utah game and could commit immediately thereafter.

    Shut the hell up and stop being such a whiny little bitch.

    I'm pretty sure that freaking out guy was being sarcastic/trying to be funny. But anyway, that joe pa thing at the end is freakin hilarious

    I told you so, I told you so, I told you so. Where are the apologies from everyone who ripped me for predicting this? I'm from UVA, which makes me smarter than any of you Kid Rock loving mouth breathers from Michigan. I am also a 757 insider, so coaches tell me a lot. You should have listened.

    HOW BOUT THEM APPLES!

    I was just going to delete Homer's post, but did someone from Virginia honestly just try to make fun of people from Michigan for being white trash? What a retard.
