More Possible Attrition

At the annual football bust, according to every media outlet with a UM beat writer, Sam McGuffie, Carson Butler, and Avery Horn were not present. Butler's (as-yet-still-unofficial) departure from the team may be the worst-kept secret in America, and Horn wasn't expected to ever contribute.

McGuffie, on the other hand, had a transfer rumor circulating a few weeks back, and until now, it had appeared that everything was back on track for him to remain in Ann Arbor. Of course, his absence from one event is not a sure sign either way that he is on his way out, but certainly something to keep in mind.

Eligibility Chart as yet not updated, but certainly on notice for official word on any of these guys.

“More Possible Attrition”

    That sucks about McGuffie. That kid could have used a year to sit out and add some bulk before being thrown to the wolves. He was severly over-matched out there as far as sheer size goes. I am not hating on him, I wish him well and all that. I actually feel bad for him. there was a kid in my high school who played ball and got one too many concussions and by the end of his Sr. year it was like talking to a shy 5 year old. He would just smile and laugh as if he had no understanding of what anything meant. It was weird. Anyways, I liked McGuffie and liked his potential, he just could have built some bulk before he had to go out there.

    I am going to make the assumption that McGuffie's personal troubles might have something to do with this and it's better not to assume he's off the team. People should be more concerned that he is alright with his concussions and the death in the family than him being at U of M playing football.
