Will Michigan's losses be PSU's gain?
January 9, 2008 - Neil Rudel
Penn State's chances to end its nine-game losing streak to Michigan just went up.
News out of Ann Arbor Wednesday disclosed three key players are leaving the Wolverines' program. New coach Rich Rodriguez confirmed quarterback Ryan Mallett is transferring and receivers Adrian Arrington and Mario Manningham will forego their final seasons of eligibility in order to enter the NFL Draft.
Mallett was expected to be UM's starting quarterback. As a true freshman, he was able to beat Penn State before the season even hit October.
All Manningham and Arrington did to the Lions was torch the secondary for game-winning touchdown receptions in 2005 (Manningham) and 2007 (Arrington), respectively.
Maybe the Lions' drought will end in 2008 because, clearly, UM will be in some transition.
