And this is how heart attacks start people.
Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
UPDATE: Professional hottie's tweet has disappeared. You can safely ignore the below, I think.
Um… so this person…
…has a twitter that says this:
Very reliable source telling me Tate Forcier requested a transfer from #Michigan this AM. NOT yet confirmed, will update as I know more.
I'd link it but I'm getting fail whales and am suffused with an overwhelming ennui.
Not to disparage smoking hot bikini models or anything, but I'd probably take Mike Rothstein's word over hers. Then again she has done some sideline work for the Big Ten Network—the entire reason this is credible enough to bother with—and Rothstein is not banging out strenuous denials and this is Michigan post-Bo so it's probably true and all she left out its that he's hiring someone to bash Denard's knee in, Tonya Harding style.
And this is how heart attacks start people.
i'm half excited to have a couple more drinks and sleep in until 10-11, wake up and find out if this was all bull or not. should be obvious by tomorrow's practice...
Can we just get to SEPT 4,2010 PLEASE
they're going to need all 16 days to work out the CB situation!!!!
I just spoke w/Tate's uncle and he said it's not true.
I don't know how much more I can take of this RR crap, he better win at least 8 games this year
or I want his ass gone!!!!!
The QB race is wide open and there is plenty of practice time left for Tate to take the lead as starter! He's going to see plenty of playing time this season.
She is hot, but assuming this source is wrong, she is toast.
Tate can be a great QB at Michigan. I hope that he lights up PSU for 4 TDs as a subtle payback.
I also hope that I am gently nestled by her bosom.
Tate is not transferring.
Let's ignore anything little miss blondie says from now on, m'kay?
a) If I were Tate, I'd stay. Of anyone, Tate should know that Denard could get hurt, or maybe doesn't work out quite as good in a game as he has in the controlled environment of practice or in the Spring Game (where your tacklers are your friends). Even if Tate is not the starter for UConn, he could very well be for the meat of the Big Ten schedule.
b) She was cooking two lobsters for dinner. In the spirit of brotherhood, hopefully that dude had a nice evening ...
with the best. I don't see Tate leaving just because he is facing a challenge. Every solid program has competition at all positions. So what is is going to do ... go to another great program and run into competition and transfer again.? Go Blue !!!
The hottie was a nice surprise but unfortunately I think this kind of post deserves an otter.
Although possible, it's too early to consider transfering unless it is CLEAR that he has moved from starter to third string in two weeks. He is still a potential starter for this season. Tate may have cried to someone about the competition and that person ran with it, but I wouldn't buy into it until it actually happens. Now with that being said, I don't see Tate as a person who thrives on competition and wouldn't put it past him to transfer in the future if he loses to one of the other QB's.
...Michigan fans are 800lb gorillas with a chainsaw penis. especially on the information superhighway web internets.
amazingly hot, can we cover her up a bit...I look like a perv at work.
Also, I'm sure this chick didn't pull this out of thin air. Could this be an example of the insider espionage that is going on at Michigan (rumor about Tate transferring)? Maybe Brandon hasn't rid all of the traitors yet?
That has to be intentional right? A sort of “calming the waters” move?
Obviously if Tate were to transfer it means he does not want to compete against Denard and Devin. Can't he just wait to do it until next year when we don't need him as much? with all of this negativity I sure could use a "100% Pure Columbian Awesome" post right about now!
we need Tate to be the best player he can be for UM for four years.
We all know this a bullshit story. The only reason I went through the four pages of comments is to see if there were any more photos!
Tate will gain a lot of confidence and respect from his teammates when he goes through this off-season nonsense and steps up and produces this season -- regardless of whether it is as starter or in relief. The kid is a solid playmaker who had even sober observers think we had a potential Heisman candidate on our hands early last year. That talent is still there. If he is healthy, if he is confident, if his teammates respect him, and if he continues to be pushed by Devin and Denard, then he is going to have a tremendous run at Michigan.
When is the last time we were this stacked at QB? Tate, I am still a fan.
That's my vote for the mgoblog banner contest. I want to rescind my previous entry.
She asked if I wanted to be her "inside" source... so I said stuff. Sorry.
i still believe tate will start the uconn game
Took a look at her most recent tweets, and it screams of someone trying to be a big shot who is miffed that she was called out on her low-rate "journalism." This whole fiasco sounds like the "I'm not saying, I'm just saying" caveat that people use when they want to spread a rumor without, you know, nutting/ovary-ing up to it.
For all the joys and advances that technology have provided to mankind, the ability for anyone with a mobile app and a twitter account to generate 200+ comment threads (and terrify a fan base) because of a rumor is something I could do without. At least with a traditional news source, there would be some vetting, questions asked like "you sure the guy made eye contact at any point while telling you this, or did he look like this:
Maybe she went all Russian Spy on Tate and got him in bed where most boys will say anything. "Tell me you're transferring Tater. Tell it to me..."
Hell Facebook had a Russian spy why couldn't twitter?
Edit:: This is right up the WLA's alley.
Melanie is a bikini model. I propose that for every good play made by the secondary this year another bikini photo of Melanie gets posted to this site. I love Michigan, but let's be honest there probably won't be many photos needed. As for all the bad plays the secondary makes this year, well I've made my own personal drinking game for that. I recommend you all do the same. Go Blue.
Considering their QB situation it makes sense that she would try to get him to...
...COME TO PENN SCHTAAATE!
I'll believe anything she says if she snuggles up to me.
She keeps going back to the 'not yet confirmed' part of the tweet...what about the 'will update as I know more' part? Did I miss it? Seems like she went straight from reporting it to defending her mistake. It would be nice if there was tweet in between: 'Report was false. Sorry about that'
I'm taking my talents to South Beach. Tweet tweet.
I like the fact that before this probably 80% of the Michigan fanbase would have penisbanged her repeatedly. Now 99% of us would rather hit her with a wooden mallet.
