No One Wants to Play Defense for Michigan's Greg Robinson

Things continue to go from bad to worse for Rich Rodriguez and company at Michigan.  It was learned yesterday that starting CB Troy Woolfolk broke his fibula and dislocated his ankle.  A senior, Woolfolk was expected to "anchor" Defensive Coordinator Greg Robinson's nationally ranked (82 out of 120) defense.  The injury was confirmed by Woolfolk's father, Butch:

"dislocated right ankle and broken fibula. waiting for swelling to go down before possible surgery".


One week ago, former blue chip recruit Justin Turner asked for and was granted his release from the program.  Turner was only a redshirt freshman.

Michigan is already starting a redshirt sophomore in J.T. Floyd and will look to a pair of true freshmen (Cullen Christian or Courtney Avery) to fill in for Woolfolk.  Michigan may not want to admit it, but the sky is starting to fall in Ann Arbor.  Michigan will be tested early in the season on September 11th on the road at Notre Dame.

Penn State gets their shot at Michigan's swiss cheese secondary on October 30th at Beaver Stadium (8pm).  It won't even matter which QB we are starting at that point.

It appears RichRod's last season in Ann Arbor is going to be a bumpy one.
