Well, so much for Tate Forcier dismissing all those transfer rumors last month as nothing but that: rumors. 

If you were watching Michigan beat Connecticut earlier on Saturday afternoon, you no doubt saw the shot of Forcier sitting on the sideline alone and with a towel over his head.  No doubt pondering his future as he watched Denard Robinson light it up, and then, after seeing Robinson leave the game with an injury for a while, Devin Gardner getting the call to replace him.

It seems that Forcier has come to a conclusion on his future in Ann Arbor.  More specifically, that there won't be one.

As Forcier walked off the field looking as if his team were on the losing end of their 30-10 victory he was approached by reporters who know doubt wanted to ask him about the game and his feelings.  Forcier didn't even give them a chance to ask.

"All you need to know is I'm out," he told them.

Forcier then retreated to the locker room, and upon leaving he ignored autograph seekers, gave a few hugs, and walked off with his cell phone to his ear.

This isn't the most shocking development, as the signs have been there for a while.  First, Forcier not having the Michigan wings on his helmet during practice, the rumors of his transfer, and then his demotion to third string on the depth chart.  It wasn't as much a question of would he transfer, but when?

Of course, nothing is official yet, and this all could have just been an emotional reaction to a bad day for the sophomore quarterback.  Still, i wouldn't expect to see Forcier standing on the sidelines at the Big House in the maize and blue ever again.

he told them. That doesnt mean hes transferring. I took it to mean hes out of QB rotation. His hug of RichRod before the ND game was less ambigous than that comment.
