alternate headline: man does job
In case the Forcier Transfer tweet going all Keyser Soze five minutes after it was posted…
…was not indication enough, Tom got in touch with Tate's dad, who laughed the rumors off:
Mike Forcier, Tate's dad, laughed at the transfer rumors. Said they aren't true, and he wouldn't support it anyways.
This tweet is still up.
Melanie Collins, meanwhile, has mastered the art of 21st century apologizing by admitting nothing, claiming her righteousness, and blathering insane nonsense:
Twitter is an outlet to post thoughts, provoke conversation & share info I'm hearing. I never once said there was any truth to Forcier rumor
No truth, just from a "very reliable source." This flies if your bio says you're a pathological liar. Collins's does not, unfortunately. Wait a minute… AH-HA! CAUGHT YOU RED HANDED, I DID.
I probably shouldn't have posted anything on a rumor that seemed specious enough to cloak it in the skepticism/fatalism I did, but I figured since she was and is a Big Ten Network "personality" that it was worth posting. Sorry about that. On a side note: message board folk should drop it since the chatter has degenerated into "I would do her so hard and then put her in an apron so she can make me a sandwich which is all women are good for help me I've never touched one." Don't post anything your mother doesn't want to read. Or my mother.
And Kelvin Grady has the last word:
NEVER A DULL MOMENT #period

That does not look like someone who spends his time talking to hot women.
"Even on a slow day, I can have a three way....chat with two women at one time."
Thank goodness - if Tate were to transfer, that would mean the end to all of the Tate v. Denard comment threads that we all know and love.
I really hate the fact that sports networks hire these hot girls in low cut dresses to report on sports. There are places for women like her - how about Girls Gone Wild or the Playboy Channel? If she expects to be taken seriously, she probably shouldn't have spread herself all over the internet in a bikini, and then made incredibly stupid comments about potentially destructive tweets she posted. There are women out there who can report on sports with some degree of credibility, so please BTN and the rest of you, stop bringing on these bimbos. They're jokes, and they make you look like a joke.
Comm majors have to go somewhere....
You, MGoJen and Wendy5k should be sideline reporters on the BTN. You'd be much better informed, and actually be in possession of gray matter between your ears. You'd be a little biased, sure, but I think those of us on the board could forgive you for it.
They could find any in Engineering...
I was a communications major. Of course, it got me nothing.
Wendyk5 for sideline reporter campaign starts here. Spread the word people.
Jen Sterger tweets that Brett Farve will be traded to and also start for the Jets!
My mother would never want to read about me breaking down UM's secondary depth.
I'm going to just have to sit back and read for awhile...
Luckily my mother would probably do Melanie Collins, so I guess some inane comments are still fair game.
That damn Melanie Collins is such a liar...oh, wait a second, my god is she hot. Who cares if she makes stuff up?
Don't post anything your mother doesn't want to read. Or my mother.
So wait, does this mean that my mother and your mother do or do not want to read about how incredibly heterosexual I am, and the unrealistic fantasies I have about women who I have absolutely no chance with?
I heard it from a credible source that Mrs. Cook is a saint. So there is that to think about.
EXACTLY what Brian's mom likes to read.
Actually, I don't, but I have subscriptions to redbook and good housekeeping if she's interested in borrowing my old copies.
On a side note: message board folk should drop it since the chatter has degenerated into "I would do her so hard and then put her in an apron so she can make me a sandwich which is all women are good for help me I've never touched one."
It's good to laugh. Thanks Brian.
her sandwiches are anything like her reporting, I'll pass.
If there's one thing I hate, it's an inaccurate sandwich.
If they are anything like her... um... the rest of her, then I'll take two!
Tate buzzes Segese's interview - doesn't look like someone who wants to leave.
Thank for posting. Glad to see he's still having fun and playing around after everything that's gone down recently.
A friend of a friend of a hot BTN reporter told me that she has a reliable source that told her that WOOOO is code for "I'm gonna transfer!"
I mean, can't you hear the anger in that WOOO?
This doesn't mean he's not transferring, it just means he's not transferring YET.
the next time you get neg-banged to oblivion.
Kelvin Grady FTW.
Welcome to the MGoEra of Michigan Football.
Admit it, Brian. You just wanted to put those pics on the main page.
Not that I object.
Viva la cheesecake. It was crude, but a part of EDSBS I enjoyed.
At least she looks like she'd be pretty good at sex. She really sucks at journalism.
Would you say the same if she wasnt hot?
Disagree... not harsh enough.
If someone doesn't understand the power of the internet by now, they shouldn't be using it. For someone to tweet some unsubstantiated bullshit, and then back away when people call her on said bullshit, is disengenous at best.
She knew what she was doing, she pulled a Herbstreit.
Are you by chance Melanie Collins?
conjuring Mike Brady "Kids, I think we all learned a valuable lesson: Melanie Collins is hot and hot women are not to be trusted."
It seems she could really use the experience. Can't stand people who talk shit and then back away like it's your fault that they could be misunderstood.
Come out ye foul spirit!
I hope the BTN has at least read her the riot act if this is her first major screwup. (If it isn't, she should probably be fired.) She needs to understand that passing on unfounded rumors is the opposite of journalism.
"Twitter is an outlet to post thoughts, provoke conversation & share info I'm hearing. I never once said there was any truth to Forcier rumor."
Are you for real?
So, she covers up for gross incompetence by insulting people's intelligence, trying talk this bullshit?
What a stupid tw_t.
(By the way, it's an "i" that goes in the blank above. As in, stupid twit. Stupid tweeting twit, in fact.)
What do you expect, she went to Penn State.
I really don't like her at all. Her idioticy makes her unattractive in my eyes.
I think the reasonable thing to do, was for her to apologize for the remark. Yet she's so ridiculously smug and stubborn and refuses to do so. She may think it's just twitter but because of her affiliation with the Big Ten Network, I think people thought she might have a real source and some real insight. I'm sorry, but as a journalist or whatever hack she's supposed to be, because of her position, she can't be posting unconfirmed rumors that a team's starting QB from the previous year is transferring. That's shoddy journalism.
Michigan and Alabama are going to play, but she pulled that one.
My mom's actually pretty cool, and would probably high five me if I were to "bone (Melanie Collins) so hard and put her in an apron." So there's that. I just said I thought she was quite the attractive lass. And, also, although the pics Brian posted made it seem damn positive she has uhh, enhancements, if you look at the videos of Ms. Collins, this may be up for debate. Damn photographers and their tricks.
Regardless, back to worrying about how bad our secondary is going to get lit up and whether we can cut down on turnovers on offense.
