Did you honestly think we had forgotten about the best linebacker in the country - Willie Williams?

As of Saturday, the AP was reporting Willie could be headed to Troy of all places:

Linebacker Willie Williams is in discussions with Troy University in Alabama about possibly transferring there after receiving permission from the University of Miami to do so, a Troy official said Friday night.

Ricky Hazel, the sports information director for Troy, said the school is interested in Williams and that UM on Thursday told Troy it would release Williams from his Miami scholarship to play there. Hazel said Troy defensive coordinator Jeremy Rowell has spoken with Williams and those discussions will continue.

''We're working on it,'' Hazel said.
UM spokesman Rick Korch said Williams has not told UM where he will transfer, but that he has been given permission to transfer to Troy, which could give Williams a scholarship.

For a guy that gained fame from writing about getting wined, dined and 69ed from all the major college football programs, this would be a very disappointing pick.

Obviously, Lloyd Carr is still one phone call away from bringing Willie to Ann Arbor, but time is running out ...

We love you Willie!
