Is this the last time Tate Forcier will throw a pass?

Quarterback Tate Forcier, the former Michigan quarterback that had transferred to Miami, has not enrolled in the school, and for all intents and purposes will not be in the Hurricanes' plans for the upcoming season.

According to multiple sources, the junior quarterback had signed an aid agreement with the Hurricanes, but it is being speculated that issues not concerning football are presenting problems. 

His departure from Michigan was rocky, as he was ruled academically ineligible for the Wolverines' trip to the Gator Bowl and after signing with Miami, he and Michigan Athletic Director, David Brandon, were involved in a dispute stemming from Forcier's statement that he had never wanted to leave Ann Arbor.

Forcier's future would be uncertain.  He had considered Washington, Arizona and Kansas State as possible landing spots last winter, but NCAA regulations would require him to sit out one season if he were to enroll at a FBS school (see above schools), but if he were to enroll at a FCS school, he would be able to play immediately.

In his career at Michigan which he started 12 games as a freshman, and served as Denard Robinson's backup until being ruled ineligible, he compiled a stat line of: 219 of 365 passes for 2,647 yards with 17 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 20 appearances for the Wolverines.  Michigan was 9-11 in games he appeared in.

Forcier apparently had broken contact with the Hurricanes about six weeks ago and had no involvement with the university or the program.

His next move is clouded with uncertainty, and no public decision has been made as of the writing of this article.  Stay tuned.
