is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
Flint defensive tackle Danny O'Brien (6'2", 293 lbs) has seen his recruitment take off. He's added offers from the likes of Alabama and Florida among others. He went up to Michigan's camp today to show the Michigan coaches what he could do and prove his worth. Here's what he had to say about the day.
TOM: How did the day go?
DANNY: Good, I tore it up. I didn't work out in the second part, I just kind of hung out and talked with everybody.
TOM: What was the outcome from this camp with Michigan? I know there was a discrepancy of sorts with being on the same page.
DANNY: There was basically some confusion during the spring on how they wanted things to go and they told me they wanted me to come to camp and prove myself. They told me that there's basically only a couple defensive tackles with offers and they will probably only take one interior guy. They're going to recruit me really hard now and they gave me the pitch and everything.
TOM: So what's next? I know you told me the other day that you were going to come out with a top five soon.
DANNY: Yeah in July I'll come out with a top five. I don't have a leader anymore, I'm just going to evaluate all the schools in the top five and go from there.
TOM: Do you know when you want to have your final decision made?
DANNY: I'd like to take some official visits then make the decision late in the season or after the season, but I'm not sure yet.
I was working with our QBs and WRs at our football camp last week, and my QB threw a ball 3 feet over the head of the receiver. Without thinking, I yelled out, "NICE CATCH TACOPANTS." Of course, everyone stopped, stared, and asked "who is Tacopants?" To which I responded, "He's Jason Avant's 11foot imaginary friend who is made of butterfly dreams and has infinite eligibility. Try not to throw to him too often." It got a laugh, but it also got me to thinking how much MGoBlog infiltrates my everyday venacular - aside from consuming endless amounts of time which my wife and boss absolutely love. Hell, I'm actually at my customer's office typing this. HALOL.
We also have the running backs apparatus we use to teach ball security. When it's time for that part of the practice, I direct the skill guys to "head over to the dong forest."
I've also coached girls softball and take a much different approach than I do the boys on the football field. When my right fielder heaves a ball to the first basemen, despite repeated instricutions NOT to, I put on my pouty face, stick out my lower lip, and wait for the the other girls to yell, "SAD PANDA!"
Am I the only simple mind who is so easily influenced by so many things from here?
Ohio State comes in at #10. Ha.
Looks like Pryor did the Gruden Camp and it will be aired next Thursday. I think this is a must have the popcorn ready situation.
