    Not trying to start a rumor but..

    I was reading the Detroit Free Press website and noted that Sam McGuffie (true freshman running back from Michigan that we pursued hard last year) did not show up at the yearend fotball banquet. Head coach Rodrigues would not comment on McGuffie and the other missing players other than to say that it would be normal to expect more attrition. The article also noted that Rodrigues mentioned that Michigan was a long way from Texas (McGuffie's home state) and McGuffie's younger brother.

    Anybody hear or see anything that would fan or squelch this rumor?

    I don't get it...so you think he's interested in ISU?

    Re: Not trying to start a rumor but..

    I don't get it either.

    If he misses Texas, I would assume he'd go to a school closer to home. Ames is closer to Texas than Ann Arbor, but it isn't all THAT close.

    If this has nothing to do with ISU (as it likely doesn't), then I really don't care about recruits we wanted but turned us down...

    I didn't know we were a finalist for McGuffie.......Sam was one of the few bright spots for Michigan this year. He would have been a nice get for ISU. If it's true that he is leaving Michigan, I would guess it's to one of the Texas schools.

    He would have been more impressive if he didn't fumble so much. Had terrible time dropping the ball.

    It'd be great if he had interest in ISU, but like everyone else, I'm wondering if ISU is close enough for him.

    Re: Not trying to start a rumor but..

    We were briefly one he was considering last year.

    He is connected to A&M like Barnes is to ISU. It has been rumored for a long time he is headed back. However it may not even be A&M, who knows (think Barnes).

    In any case it would not be ISU.

    It wouldn't be a&m. They have all but abandoned the running game under Sherman and the running back they do have is a stud named Cyrus Gray. If he were transferring, I could see him trying to land at Texas or Okie State

    McGuffie Probably Transferring

    Is it wishful thinking to hope that he'll end up at state?
