    Darius White - u need to read this...

    Darius White is a florida native and has been approached by the U for a scholarship offer. But, there are pitfalls awaiting your decision. Cue - Mike Marry. Mike Marry was another linebacker recruit from florida that was trying to decide if he was going to commit to ISU or Ole Miss.

    He decided to wait until signing day to let the winning school know who would get his services, but, all indications were it would be Ole Miss.

    Signing day comes and he sends his letter to Ole Miss and his family celebrates. Wait a minute, there's a minor problem. Ole Miss had oversigned players and awaited news on how many would qualify etc etc. Unfortunately for Mike Marry, they oversigned and asked him to gray shirt. Which means he needed to pay his own way the first year of college. You can read the rest of the story...Even though he had to pay his own way the first year, luckily through injuries above him, the kid is on the field and making plays.

    Ole Miss' Oversigning: A Travesty? - Red Cup Rebellion

    Your story is becoming very familiar. So you know, currently Miami has 31 committments and is continuing to offer scholarships including yours. The NCAA sanctions the maximum scholarships a team can award for any year is 25. If they oversign they will determine who will be allowed to gray shirt or worse yet simply cut loose.

    We think you could develop into an exceptional player, and hope it remains with ISU.

    Good Luck Mr. White, whatever you decide.

    Marry also started every game and led his team in tackles and tackles for a loss as a sophmore this year... He'll be ok.

    Yeah, if we are looking for the worst thing that could happen to the kid, Mike Marry is not a very good example.


    It's all snark from here on out

    SHHHH.

    What you are saying is factual, but it is not helping the argument.

    Not that we really need him as much as we could use help at other positions, but it would have been sweet to have Marry with Knott and Klein.

    That would have been a damn near freakish combo right there...
