That's great too hear!
Holy cheese and crackers i love Ricardoooo
I love this kid. Is it wrong to have a man-crush on a high school junior?
ignorance of the law is no excuse for statutory rape.
DUDE that's awesome. I hope he's right and I hope you're not making this up.
Robinson and Witty are from Florida. Anyone else I'm missing? It's not Stokes or Washington or Montgomery.
i copy and pasted his comments from my facebook wall. i should add, however, that this conversation took place apprx. 2 weeks ago, so you never know what could have changed since then. I've just been waiting for a good time to post what he said, and I think tonight is the perfect night for it.
Nu'Keese? This is totally a guess, but would be rather sweet.
Nice to see that Rich Rod has given Ricardo a few vials of his Snake Oil secret sauce.
Wondering if tomorrow we will hear more about 2010 verbals who are in the fold.
While I think we've taken our love/obsession for Ricardo too far, I love the work the kid is doing. He's a really great guy, if you friend him on facebook he'll talk to you, he's the kind of kid we want around Ann Arbor. So I hope he's preachin hard, lol.
that he really enjoys having people add him on facebook. I've read interviews where he's gone as far as to say that what stood out b/w Michigan and Florida visits was that everyone in Michigan knew who he was and the Gator fans didn't even recognize him.
I'm not joking, even a little bit:
Every time I hear about an (adult?) fan having facebook and myspace conversations with 17-year-old kids, I get completely and utterly skeeved out, and worried for these kids. Not because you're a rapist (you're probably not), but because these kids naively let hundreds of people gain access to their lives, and the second they decommit, or drop a pass, or get arrested with weed, or anything, they have hundreds of strangers whom they've "disappointed" with access to give them a piece of their mind.
Seriously, let this kid be 17, and leave him the fuck alone.
Cosigned. Why don't these same people have long Facebook conversations with 17 year old girls?
i don't know if i'd call myself an adult yet. i guess legally i am, but no...not until i'm actually in the real world living on my own
though I hate dick fans as much as anyone, these people are not necessarily the same people. also, if Ricardo doesn't want to talk to people there's a simple way not to: ignore it.
on what was meant by "these people are not necessarily the same people"...i'm not quite sure i understand who you're talking being the same as something, or whatever, lol.
My guess would be that he means you people, as in those of you here chatting up 17 year olds on facebook, aren't necessarily the same as the ones who crucify them for decommitting or dropping a pass.
there's nothing wrong with dropping a pass. that stuff happens. when you bitch at a kid is when he let's that get him down and sulks about it or if he gives less effort because of it. or, in one case, a player faking an injury after he dropped a pass and costing the team a timeout. also, i actually am one of those guys who doesn't crucify a kid for de-committing. however, there can be exceptions. for instance, shav beaver lied before he de-committed. if there's one thing bo didn't accept, it was lying (in case you didn't gather, my entire football philosophy is based on Bo)
What do you mean, "you people?"
You never go full retard.
True, they are not "necessarily" the same people. But I bet a decent number are.
Further, I agree Ricardo could just ignore it, and I sort of wish he would. But it's pretty hard for a 17-year-old kid to turn away legions of people who come to fawn over him. He's getting the praise now, and he's taking it - what happens when these people turn nasty (which some will)?
So, yeah - just because he's accepting friend requests doesn't mean he should have these people close. A 6-year-old has the option to not take a lolipop from a pedo, too. (I realize that's absurdly extreme, but still)
That's cool that he has time and is willing to interact with you. I'm sure you reiterated the love everyone has for him on here. Or, on second thought, don't tell him...that may freak him out and decide to go to tulsa!
When he decommits, I'm going to bump this thread.
that you're gonna be bumping this thread
My claim to fame (some day), I was his 3rd or 4th friend when he made his facebook. Lol!
better than bumping uglies with this tread
all kidding aside thanks for the info. But you might want to read some of what recruits say about the recruiting process. And consider for this kid this is new and we are feeding his teen aged ego. He may get tired of all the attention, or he may get creeped out. Just don't over do the attention. RR and staff have a hard enough time "de recruiting these kids once they get on campus. I'm just sayin
was the type of recruit who would like the attention of fans, i wouldn't even have added him in the first place.
Of course a 17 year old high school junior likes the attention of fans at the start of the recruiting period. But by the time he's taken some visits and the process has evolved beyond just committing to his mom's alma mater he probably won't be as receptive.
I think TomVH will back me on this one, but from all that I have read on Ricardo, he's a humble kid and while the attention is well received, he's not going to suddenly grow a big head.
Remember HS relationships? Two people, totally in love? Making out in the hallway? Saying they'd be together forever? Then something ridiculous happens, like the guy forgets to get his girlfriend her customary double portion of extra fat ranch, and they hate each other? The girl refuses to be in the same class, party, etc with the guy? The guy spreads horrible rumors about her? And all this happens because HS kids are terribly fickle?
For the record, it was Thousand Island and I was trying to send a message.
Ricardo is the coolest thing since TomVH
Dex, athelete's don't worry about girlfriends or breakups. They just move on to the next thing.
Thanks for the pick me up Brodie.
$50 says he decommits by next year.
