Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Justin Turner Qualified
Not seeing it on the front page of scout? I'm guessing you have super secret forum membership access? That or maybe my browser is just slow.
Either way, great news if it is true!
I believe that he's referring to this insider link: http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=162&f=1088&t=4507455
If you go to the MScout front page and look in the box titled "Michigan Forums" you'll see a link to a forum post called "*(GBW's gotten one report as well): JT TURNER good to go*".
I don't subscribe to Scout (or Rivals) so I can't verify what's actually in there.
I believe that there used to be something on the front page about it but the story was taken down. Possibly because they shouldn't release that information without the kid's consent or because they might not have it actually confirmed (I don't think test scores are released yet).
All it says is (paraphrasing) "Justin Turner qualified. It has been confirmed"
This is great news. The class is complete and ready to roll.
I almost just pissed myself with excitement!
I saw a thread on this yesterday where first they did then they didn't. (not criticizing as this is not technically a repost) http://mgoblog.com/content/turner-enrolled
However, if true, praise the flying spaghetti monster
You should always praise the flying spaghetti monster, unless you want burned pasta.
I just went from six to midnight.
I don't know what that means at all. I'll assume that you're excited since this is too good news.
Wait, I think I got it, is it the human equivalent of turning the amp up to 11?
haha to saying boner city to a male high school graduate being allowed to practice
My bad, I probably should've figured that out.
But, on the other hand, I am at a public computer trying to apply for jobs so it probably wouldn't be a good idea to go to Urban Dictionary.
That google link with the typing was awesome. Never seen that before. Slick!
lmgtfy = win
Now people don't even have to type "did you try google?" when people ask questions...
Thanks to having watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall about 700 times this summer on HBO/Cinemax, I got this one right off the bat. Not sure if I should be proud of that or not.
Either way, well played sir.
I have a sneaking suspicion that is an example of the kind of talk that sent Wermers packing for BSU.
Is this more substantial than what Eroc "reported"?
scout hasnt reported anything on this since last night
Scout is NOT reporting that he is qualified. They intially posted a report from one of their members, an insider, who stated he heard from some at Turner's high school that he qualified. Scout later stated they heard the same thing, but could not confirm and that no one at Michigan had told them that Turner was in. Their final word was that there were "rumblings" he had qualified but they couldn't say more.
As they say, sometimes when there is smoke there is a fire. Hopefully these rumblings turn out to be true. Thanks for the update.
rumblings of JT qualifying rather than the other way around.
Below the comment box where you type in your post, there is a link saying "Input format". If you click on it, it gives you a description of the way input is handled. The key line for you is "Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.". So just copy and paste the URL, and it will automatically turn into a "imbedded" link.
That is when we'll find out. Now let's all go to Bermuda.
I was excited until I saw this was just a rumor. We'll know on August 3rd I guess.
that is all
Is JT gonna be rockin out #2?
Vincent Smith already has number 2, but I guess JT could also wear it, since he'd likely never be on the field at the same time as him.
at least its good speculation
He said this morning that he couldn't verify that Turner had qualified. Maybe things have changed since.
<a href="url">Text you want to link</a>
that spagetti god that this is true, then we can all go from 6 to midnight. lol you get a +1 from me on that one bro.
now on the main page that Turner is in.
this news, along with a tanker blowing up a bridge on I75 canceling work, makes this a damn good day.
it must be true if brian is reporting it
I still don't understand how this voracity can be un-unverified yet.
Granted, the scores are all in, already, but they don't become public until the 3rd. Can someone explain this to me?
unless and until Turner releases them.
IME, all of this is unverified because it is all based on assumptions due to Turner's enrollment. This is all smoke derived from his enrollment.
This is all unverified because there is nothing to verify. If Turner knew his score and qualified, it would have been immediately announced. If he didn't, he would not be in Ann Arbor.
it is not official yet.
However, everyone expects that it is on the right track.
This is as of 5PM.
I bet we won't know it is official for awhile (probably until 8/3 as originally expected).
At least it looks like he is in good shape.
