Holy shit!?!?! Is that like tomorrow?
But yeah, I think he is going to ND. Bummer.

it is tomorrow.
I officially did not realize that Friday == tomorrow.
I love Summer.
presently, it is tomorrow, but in the future it won't always be tomorrow. It could even be considered yesterday at some points.
Well heres a riddle:
Whats a day thats so close, but never comes?
The last day...?
Michigan's opener against WMU?
The end of Ford?
The next Lions win?
That's all I got.
You guys are too good. All very acceptable answers! Cheers
I like the ==
Must be an engineer
Haha something like that; I just took Engr101 last semester with Ringenberg.
Needless to say, if you guys need to figure out the dew point given relative humidity and actual temperature, I'm your guy.
I had Bielajew a couple years ago. I hated that class with a passion. Why does a Civil Engineer need to know programming?!
Maybe Bielajew got tougher over the years, but I remember we were the oddly different class. We learned how to do math in binary and hex, then went straight to C++. Then, I earned something like 155% on an program due to extra credit, we ran out of time to learn MATLAB so the only MATLAB program was optional, and he gave us the answers to the final to memorize.
Now that I think about it, it probably wasn't the best way to learn programming.
Ours had a similar feeling towards the end.. with the OH SHIT WE FORGOT MATLAB! part but he himself said that he had been reading his ratemprofessor posts and didn't like being thought of as easy. He also stopped giving extra credit when I took it despite the students' pleading. I wouldn't say it was OMG SO IMPOSSIBLE HARD, but combined with a shitty GSI who looked and acted like a caveman and no desire to learn programming, it wasn't one of the more pleasant courses of my college career. Especially considering I just took a Civil-required course in Fortran and found it interesting and semi-entertaining.
the Domers way. Not a huge deal, hoestly, as we have plenty of DB targets favoring Michigan.
Also...400 points. Man I suck.
I'm doing my best to catch you, but I just keep getting farther away.
....earlier this week Lo posted something on his Facebook to the effect of ... "Hey Facebookers, I commit on Friday, what should I do?"
About 35 posts came back, all telling him to go to Michigan, except for one guy who said go to FIU.
He also said in a response that he was considering NOTRE DAMN. Is that a Freudian slip or what?
Seems like one of the many recruits (*COUGH* Big Will Campbell *COUGH*) that tries to get attention by creating drama in their recruiting.
We were this kid's leader for a long time. If we beat Notre Dame this fall and play a high-tempo, exciting style of football, he could change his mind (assuming he commits to South Bend).
That whole saga was brilliantly played by him, but somehow I hated the whole thing as I am sure everyone else did.
Well at least we know he won't be coached up into a great player.
If he is dumb enough to leave UF that is.
If Urban Meyer goes to ND, we will rue that day... bitterly. As will all of their other rivals.
It would finally put a spark back in the battle for the Jeweled Shillelagh.
+2 for the proper spelling of "Shillelagh" Kudos my good man Kudos
I would also worry if Jon Gruden were to replace Charlie Weis.
I missed Sam Webb this morning, and the title of the podcast is "Football, Elite basketball camps, and a possible gut feeling." Which sounds pretty tantalizing to me.
Anybody catch it? Gut feelings are near 100% accurate, so possible gut feeling must be 75%+ range?
The podcast cuts off in the middle, which is why I don't know the answer to my own question...
about CC, Cullen Christian he just didn't know when it would be a for sure gut feeling. Also, Javarie Johnson committed to Miami. Sure would be nice to steal Torrian Wilson from the U as payback. The podcast is fixed if you want to check it out.
thanks, I listened. I wonder how long he pulls this out (Christian, I mean).
It may be completely irrelevant to Lo Wood. I'm pretty sure the writing has been on the wall for some time. I think someone on here mentioned a couple of days ago his plans to let his dad know tonight and then they will fly up to his choice and announce on campus. I forget who it was who posted this but I agree, sounds like a chunk of $$ for a next day flight. Either way, if he's not on our campus he's not committing and I don't think he will be.
I know. I just can't make a new forum topic, so I had to ask somewhere...
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That would explain that haha, sorry I didn't mean to sound like a douche.
Not sure if it's related, but Sam did just talk with Javarie Johnson, who made it clear that he was going to pick Miami.
There was talk that he was going to be at an ND camp this weekend anyway.
Which is really too bad becuase we were his leader for a long time. Maybe Ricardo can talk him in to coming to Ann Arbor.
Have to chalk this one up to some good recruiting on behalf of the Irish. We were after him hard, and even leading (unless we were being led on somehow), and ND looks to have picked him up.
Kudos to ND, and hopefully Lo has a good career and in the meanwhile the Irish go 0-48 over the next 4 years.
Damn Corwin Brown..
his father always favored ND. So, chalk that up to recruiting from the inside track.
fixated on star rankings and were upset about C. Avery's commitment yet Scout has him as the #23 CB and Lo as the #41 CB. Of course, if your a Rivals guy then Lo's 32 and Avery NR.
I think Avery will find his way into Wood's range on Rivals. And if he doesn't, I don't care. I like what I am hearing/seeing.
And another one bites the dust.
Didn't everyone hype him up to be one of Michigan's 786098 5* recruits out of Florida before the 2010 rankings came out?
I'm impressed that there have been 34 posts on his topic and no one's tried to make a bad joke about his name.
Hey- are you accusing us of growing up and maturing? You sir are a bastard!
I just don't understand why anyone would want to go to ND right now. They have neither current winning program nor exciting upside to offer (realistically). There is a good chance that someone who comes in now will live through a few years of transition. Charlie is likely to go, then someone will come in and take at least 2 years to right the ship. Who wants to spend a good portion of their time there during those years (like several of our players had to do)? And who knows if they will fit the new system (again, like several of our past recruits)? In a few years, yes - it might be a good place to spend your college career. But now? Too risky. I would rather go somewhere that is doing well or that is about to ride their upside to the top. Like...ummm....us.
I could totally see a hopeful Domer saying the exact same thing about us.
They could, but not with any logic or believability.
They could have said that about our last two classes, but not for next year's class. Anyone who comes in this next recruiting class will be in on some transition, but will mostly play when the transition is complete. They will play on the upside, not on the downhill of what we experienced last year and will experience some this year. If ND goes through transition, it will be over the next several years. We will be two years into ours. Which is a much better prospect in my book (if ND goes through a transition of course).
Yup, that 'if' is what I'm talking about. I bet a good share of Notre Dame fans think that with a successful season this year, Weis won't get yanked from his position.
In the same way, I think a lot of non-Michigan fans think that Rich Rodriguez needs a good season this year or he won't be back in 2010. Obviously not true, but the misconception is still out there.
yeah, very true.
It's not what the people who are passionate on either side think. People who love ND or who hate ND aren't who we're referring to. It's the informed yet unbiased groups who agree that Weis is on the hot seat and needs to perform. The same people are much more split on RR, but most say he won't be fired but for a terrible 2009 and that he will eventually bring success to UM.
Yup I totally agree with you, which is why I made sure to qualify my remark with the viewpoint of a "hopeful Domer."
on this yet?
about the announcement and yet it still hasn't happened. It is Friday isn't it? I've come to appreciate the young men who do it with less hype.
We the fans are responsible for the hype surrounding these recruits and their announcements.
Anyone have any updates on if he made commitment today?
Supposedly, he was in South Bend this afternoon. We can pretty much draw our own conclusions from there. He never did take an official to Ann Arbor.
Yes he has officially committed to ND
I can't get around the thought of Jeremy Gallon having an effect on the decision of Lo. I believe Lo would be BLUE if it wasn't for the misfortune of his former teammate.
What did I miss? What happened to Gallon?
I second this what happened to Gallon?
What trouble/issues are they alluding to with Gallon that would have impacted Lo Wood's decision?
Potentially not qualifying?
I think that "misfortune" implies more than simply "potentially" not qualifying. We were all aware of this potentiality. But if this is all, then "misfortune" was and unfortunate word choice.
Well if this "misfortune" is just him potentially not qualifying then yes it is a unfortunate word choice. Anyone know when we will know if JT and Gallon qualify?
Likely not until August. It's a clearinghouse issue, I believe. Remember, we didn't find out until mid August last year that Marcus Witherspoon didn't make it.
Besides, if Lo Wood was worried about qualifying b/c of Gallon's issue (whatever that might be), he would hardly have opted for Notre Dame whose requirements are at least equal to UM's.
'Misfortune' does imply something more dire.
ND became a big player in his recruitment after he visited for our spring game where we were supposed to have pulled even with UM. From that point on it appeared we just continued to gain his favor, probably because of his relationships with Corwin and our other florida recruits and players.
The whole Gallon thing seems to have happened pretty recently so it may have played a small part but we were his rumored leader for some time.
Congratulations, I hope he works out well for you guys (except when playing us of course).
