It has been reported that Tate Forcier has been seen sitting on the sidelines during practice and not getting the reps that Denard Robinson and freshman Devin Gardner are getting. It has also been pointed out that Forcier does not have the wings on his helmet.

Did Rich Rodriguez decide Forcier was not in the running for the starting job this fall? Did Forcier break team rules or get in the doghouse? No one knows for sure but it will be interesting to see what transpires from this.

I think this may be the beginning of the end for Forcier at Michigan. It may be time for Robinson and Gardner to take control. If that's the case I believe Forcier will ultimately transfer. I'll try to keep you guys updated. Let me know what you guys think.
