Well, that sucks...but wish him the best.

Hasn't done squat as a FB. Good luck to the young man.
11 National Titles | 42 Conference Titles | 3 Heisman Winners | 78 All-Americans | 37 College Hall of Fame Members
It beat out by a walkon (Kerridge) for the most part at FB already, and wasn't given a shot at RB this year. I think RR used him as a true Frosh too which means he could go elsewhere, redshirt, and then play one more season so might be what he sees as best.
Just read that 13 of the 27 signees in the 2010 recruiting class have left the program. Wow.
Yeah...the curse of RR lives.
Stephen Hopkins: I love the University of Michigan and everything it means to be a Michigan Man. I look forward to getting my degree.
So it sounds like he's giving up football in general, and staying to receive his degree. Good for him.
Frankly, I'm not surprised. Kerridge took over the FB spot, we've got Houma there too, and the huge, bruising RB spot is about to be taken up by Wyatt Shallman. Hopkins just doesn't have a place on the team anymore.
I wish him the best, and hope he stays on and finishes out his degree at Michigan.
Sounds like he just doesn't want to play football anymore, which I can understand at that level. The fact that he's staying at the University tells me that it's not about playing time or hating the coaches or something like that. If it were, I think you'd see him try to transfer somewhere else.
I'm not going to speak on it too much, as he's one of my good friends, but he will almost definitely stay at UM. He just won't be on the football team.
An internet message-board moderator and a D-1 RB/FB? Sounds like a new movie script from the 1980's...
I never claim to have any inside sources, but I have two connections on the team! Now it's one
Who is the remaining lucky one?
Good Luck to him!
Do you run a recruiting site?
Think you knew it was over when we played OSU and he didn't block ANYONE on that one play, but just stood there.
If he just wants to quit football and get his degree, I can appreciate that. Regardless, wish him the best.
Does this give up another schollie for the 2013 class ? If so, I would love LM III of we can just have Uncle Woodson pay for his nephew's education & give us one other spot also !
I always expected big things from him. He did not get a lot of reps and had a few fumbles. Regardless good for him on his degree. Thank you for your efforts.
This tells me that Rich Rod (or his staff) struggled at evaluating talent.
Attrition is a part of any program but that's just an absurdly high percentage.

Huh? No, this is the only site I post on.
