Cass Tech running back Mike Weber should be playing football at Michigan.
The kid learned a valuable lesson about recruiting as he got boned by Ohio State. The school signs him and before the ink dries OSU running back coach Stan Drayton takes a job with the Chicago Bears. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer knew Drayton was leaving. Drayton knew he was leaving but no one told Weber. That is sleazy.
Here is what got Weber in trouble. He was not patient. When Bray Hoke was fired he did not allow the process to play out. He ran out the door and agreed to go to Ohio State. Jim Harbaugh wanted Weber but did not land him. In other words Weber said yes to Brady Hoke and no to Jim Harbaugh.
That makes no sense.
** Let’s hope reports that Lions running back Reggie Bush sneaking ecstasy into a woman’s drink while hanging out with accused rapist Darren Sharper are false. If they are true then the Lions must cut ties with Bush. However, Bush’s attorney said the allegations are false. Let’s hope so. That is some pretty serious stuff if true.
** The guess here is that the Lions slap the franchise tag on defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and take that more than $26 million salary cap hit. It is risky business. I know one person that would not do it. New England coach Bill Belichick would let Suh walk. That is why he wins Super Bowls and the Lions don’t.
There is no question Suh can play. But you want to commit that much money to a defensive tackle? No thanks.
