He was not a projected starter. He sucked. Ricky Barnum has been the projected starter, with Khoury and Miller battling for 2nd string.
Khoury leaving is good news. He was essentially a worthless player. Opens up another scholarship in 2013 and allows us to get up to the goal of 22-24 spots for the 2013 class.
Forgot true frosh in the 2-deep- calling it right now- Kyle Kalis will start somewhere. He is going to be too good to keep off the field.
You are either an idiot or a MSU fan pretending to root for Michigan.
Just putting it out there . . . .
Taking 24-25 kids/class may make your overall recruiting rankings high, but you can't keep recruiting at that pace due to scholarship limits without significant attrition. If you don't RS any players, you can take 21-22 kids per class. Even with a few kids leaving early for the NFL, you can't keep taking massive classes.
Also, UM now only has 2 non-FR back-ups on the OL.
Sorry, but losing a RS SR OL is usually not considered a good thing. Not devastating, but not great. Again, Khoury was Molk's back-up, so I thought he was the next ugy in line. Clearly I was wrong.

Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
You mean a DE ranked 110th isn't legitimate

Holy shit. Are you kidding me? Michigan's defense essentially put the lid on VaTech's offense. Their offense scored 1 TD all game despite controlling the ball for nearly 40 minutes (believe it was like 38 and change) and averaged like 3 yards a rush. All this despite Michigan's offense shitting the bed and going 3 and out on nearly every god damn series.
The hate is strong with you. I like it though. Means Hoke and Co. must be doing something right.
I can assure you that I am not an idiot or an MSU fan.
Rocko Khoury was not a good player. At all. When he went in for Molk he was absolutely terrible. Never showed flashes of any kind. Had trouble snapping the ball properly as well.
This is a non-event. He was not going to play over Barnum and he might not have beaten out a RS FR. in Miller to be the back-up center. Him leaving opens up another scholarship and might even allow Michigan to now take another OL in the 2013 class.
Oh my. He was A FIFTH YEAR SENIOR YOU IDIOT. IT HAS NO IMPACT ON 2013.
I love the Michigan fans swarming to our board to defend themselves. Shows how much they seek our approval after we are now the Big Dog in state. Never would have happened under JLS, that's for sure. Guess 4 years of complete ownage on the field will do that for ya. Man this feels good
Oh well. It's a moot point, as it has no impact on the 2012 season either seeing as the kid was not good and would not have played.
I think you're getting confused.
VT's defense put the lid on Michigan's offense.
Michigan only had 184 yards in offense. VT doubled that, and had 2 big scoring drives in the 2nd half (you know when your guy was controlling the line of scrimmage ).
I think only MSU gained more yards rushing against your vaunted DL.
Of course he would have played. Do you never put in backups?
Blue on blue crime.
Way to trash the kid. Your post have been as quality as you say his gameplay was.
This thread took an interesting turn
Is "supermario9" a UM fan? That's the other handle that pops up for gobluego2. . . .
Who is trashing the kid? I didn't come on here and trash him as a person. That would be stupid. I don't know him as a person.
I do know him as a player though, and he was not a very good player. If you don't think the coaches probably suggested this to him, then I don't know what to tell you. The fact is they probably were upfront with him and told him he just didn't have what it took and that he probably was not going to play.
Supposedly. Makes sense, he is this dumb on the UM board as well.
that is not me...sorry.
And yes, I am really a UM fan.
And yes, Rocko Khoury is not a good player. That is not "trashing" the kid to say that.
Bump for gobluego.
At least you weren't trashing the kid.
supermario9 is banned from here until 2050 anyway Looking at his deleted posts, he's a giant douchebag.

Another no trashing post from gobluego.

how the hell is telling the truth about him trashing him as a person?
He was NOT a good player. He did suck. He was a waste of a scholarship. He was essentially worthless. So what. That has no bearing of how he is as a person. That is not trashing him. It's just speaking to his skills as a player. He was not even mediocre. He was below that.
One of these is not like the other . . .
