It makes sense for Mike Weber to feel hurt. That is the natural emotional reaction to news like this.  However after a few days emotion needs to fade and thinking needs to take over instead.  See who they hire as RB coach.  Think over your decision and if you really still want out  at that point then ask for your release (which I would hope they would give him.)  I have a feeling though that once the emotion passes and thinking kicks in he will realize he's got it pretty good and stay.  

Regardless of what happens with Weber though, someone needs to explain to me how it helps the player for his former coach to spout off to the media.  When Wilcher makes it all about him being "disrespected" he makes it hard for me to think this is really about Weber's best interest.  It also makes me find it hard to think of him as a rational adult.

No pressure or anything, but if the site crashes on National Signing Day I might die.

One of the most fun parts for me has been watching the haters and Michigan men go through the stages of grief on twitter.  The anger and depression are obvious.  I've seen statements of blatant denial such as "They didn't deserve to be in the playoff in the first place." and "Now they should play TCU."  I think a lot of statements, like the one above about them having bad jobs someday could be considered bargaining.  I would throw in things like "But they ran up the score by scoring that last touchdown against a team that just won by 40," and "But some college kids set some stuff on fire," as bargaining as well.  When I realize that it is an expression of grief it makes me less angry at their whining and makes it more fun.  Perhaps a repeat would do a lot to move them down the road to acceptance.

How did we get TTUN to hire a Buckeye sleeper agent in the first place and how do we do it again?
