Michigan Wolverines, RB Sam McGuffie Part Ways

It's official. Sam McGuffie is transferring from Michigan.

Most sites indicate he's headed home to the state of Texas and possibly Texas A&M.

The freshman running back accumulated nearly 700 total yards and four touchdowns this season.

McGuffie put on a tremendous performance, rushing for 131 yards, against Notre Dame but went on to suffer three concussions. He saw his carries steadily decrease following the repeated injury.

As a YouTube sensation, many believed McGuffie would replace Mike Hart with no problem.

But size (5-11, 185) hindered McGuffie throughout the Big Ten season and he couldn't survive.

It's too bad—but I say goodbye and good luck. If there's one position Michigan can afford, it's running back.

The Wolverines have starter Brandon Minor coming back along with Michael Shaw and Carlos Brown. Plus, Fitzgerald Toussaint is coming in next season.

I'm just disappointed because I hoped to see him leap frog and juke defenders like in his YouTube highlights.

Ah well, what do you guys think?
