Agreed. Honestly, I look at Gholston and Gardner in similar ways. Both are freak talents with high potential. But both are extremely raw and not quite ready to contribute immediately.
According to Tom Beaver on WTKA...
At the end, Beaver also said UCLA decommit Ernest Thomas may be interested in Michigan. He's from Orchard Lake.
Would be nice to get someone from Orchard Lake for once.
...the OLSM coaches didn't take too kindly to Michigan promising to let Jermaine Gonzales play QB then switching him to WR when he got here. Since then, not many of the top OLSM guys have ended up here.
That Hopson would have that effect on multiple recruits? I thought he only got the to "DE" commit?
Someone said last night that Baxter will enroll early regardless of what school he goes to. If that's true then he needs to get to Ann Arbor by like ... Monday?
Yeah, if he ended up anywhere other than USC and enrolled early...that would be insane.
Wasn't he committed to UCLA for some time?
But on another thread, someone suggested that EE players often apply and get admitted into their top schools just in case something like this happens with their #1 school. This is a really good idea, but I'm not sure how often it actually happens or if Baxter did this.
Why do people Neg you for no reason?
Weird. Do you have beef with someone on this board?
Apparently Dave Brandon was displeased with my alternative lifestyle and lack of mental capacity yesterday. You must have missed it?
people still listen to tom beaver?
When is Mgoboard going into full stalker mode and tracking Rich Rod's plane? I can't believe we haven't started checking that again daily yet.
But I can't remember what airport the school uses, or if we have any ID info on the plane.
"Looks like N64DC is Rich Rod's aircraft for the visits on flightware.com. Looks like DeQuinta Jones may have been visited as well?"
I think you're right. However, that means RichRod has been toiling away in ... Pennsylvania??!!
He's not even on the right coast!! RichRod, you fool! Are you trying to go sailing? Skiing?
It just landed there, what recruit may he be visiting in east Pennsylvania?
Cullen Christian is in Western PA, by Pittsburgh. If he went to eastern PA to find him then he's looking at a 5 hour trip in the car after touchdown.
That is more Central/Southern Jersey or Lehigh Valley. I haven't heard of any names there unless there were a few vulnerable PSU guys since that's their area.
"Historic Wings Field (LOM) is one of the oldest continuously operating airports in the United States. Located in Blue Bell (Montgomery County), Pennsylvania, it is a very convenient portal to downtown Philadelphia and is the closest airport to Plymouth Meeting, Fort Washington, Chestnut Hill, Willow Grove, Hatboro, King of Prussia, the Main Line, and Conshohocken. It lies just 1-1/2 miles north of the intersection of three major highways – the east-west Pennsylvania Turnpike, the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, and the Blue Route (I-476) with connections of the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) and I-95."
But could it be Shariff Floyd??
so it probably isn't true.
reminds me of sitiing around a hookah all blown out and afraid to say much because of the "wrath" you would get from "the others"........NEG NEG NEG
We lose Minor and Brown and an ACL tear with V. Smith. We now find out that Drake will not qualify...Great time to get Dillon Baxter!!
According to SI the earliest coaches can do an in-home is 17 Jan. Is that true? If so I hope RR is in Baxter's house that day.
I especially liked Tom Beaver's "inside information" on Devin Gardner...
TJB -- 4:01 Devin will not enroll early.
OldManCoyote and the rest of the sheeple start to make plans for a mass suicide.
TJB -- 6:03 Devin will enroll early.
Saume starts 6000 threads about enrolling early and how this will help the team.
TJB -- 7:29 Devin will not enroll early.
sonofjorel makes a post about how everyyone on the board who doesn't kiss rich rods balls is the devil and a damn fool, god damnit.
TJB -- 8:03 Devin will either enroll early or he won't.
All the sheeple in unison -- gee thanks Tom, this is why I spend the 99 dollars a year. You are the best Tom. TJB for president!!!! I love you Tom.
but Gardner was cleared by the NCAA clearinghouse and the University of Michigan. If he had been cleared by Inkster's principal to graduate he would be an early enrollee per Sam Webb. Need to check and see if Inkster's principal has ties to MSU or OSU(haha).
Ah good ole sonofjorel. One of the reasons I don't miss the Scout board. I appreciate the enthusiasm at which the mods of the Michigan Scout boards share, but they make it borderline embarrassing to post over there. They were always right, you were always wrong. If someone from a different team dare challenge their thinking on anything Michigan football, that person would be personally insulted and banned.
sonofjorel is an RR apologist. He needs to remove his head from Rich Rod's ass so he can clearly see both sides of an arguement. Ripnice, on the other hand, seems to be more open minded but should consider toning it down on being connected to the Ann Arbor elite. Most people I know who have money never talk about it.
oldmancoyote & saume need to get a job so someone else can start a thread once in a while. I have to admit they are the two biggest stooges on GBW.
Just so long as Tressel is one of the guys he rubs wrong.
