Just wondered if anyone knows of Dee's reaction.
Any Dee Hart sightings and/or news following the game?
Well, funny story:
My group and I were at the Victor's Walk and we saw a guy with dreads pulled back, about 5'8" with all Michigan gear about 40 yards away. I had my brother bust out his phone and look up a picture just to see if it was Dee. Well, we looked up a picture and decided that it could have been him, but probably not. Turns out it wasn't, because sure enough about 30 seconds later, Dee Hart walked right up behind where we were.
We yelled for him, and Dee then turned to us, gave us a "Oh hey, what's up?" with headphones in his ear and continued on his way, to which about 20 other people immediately started yelling his name and everyone in the area of the Walk began giving him an ovation.
After that game, I feel like Dee really, really had a good impression.
Sam webb also has a "gut feeling" about him now. To those not familiar with sam webb, this means insider information and almost always results in a commitment
I wonder if Sam Webb's gut talked to Ricardo?
close to field level and saw all the recruits coming in and hanging out on the sidelines before the game. Someone yelled "you going blue yet Dee??" He just kinda smiled and turned away.
He just smiled and turned away?
Did you then go down to the sacred store, where you had heard the music years before- and did a man there say the music wouldn't play?
If I could give you all of my mgopoints, Dakota, I would.
and a thousand more H's and A's. Well played.
BTW, American Pie may be the creepiest song ever recorded. I can't listen to it at night.
I saw Dee just before the game started walking along the sidelines when we were in our seats. He had his headphones in then, too, but I got a good group of people around me to yell his name and tell him that we wanted to see him next year. He smiled, but he didn't say too much. The game should have been good for him...especially with the rushing attack that we showed...I hope we can land him!
I'm sure this game made a GREAT impression… I wouldn't worry about Dee. :)
I hope fans were chanting "Haha" as well.
So it would sound like everyone is laughing? Good idea
I think it was Nick Patti that he was sitting next to (on Dee's right) during the game. Is that Section 17, Row A? He was not saying much, but totally involved in the scene, and watching the offense extremely closely. It looked like all the guys were commenting on zone reads, and getting a big kick out of inside football stuff. Looked to me like Dee was totally into it, and having a very good time. Hope so. Who was sitting on Dee's left? Ha'Sean? Whoever it was, he was really animated; having a lot of fun.
Shawn Conway was there, wearing his Seaholm letter jacket and an M cap. Was Zettel there? I thought so; but when I looked back, he didn't seem to be there.
I was having too much fun watching the game, and watching Braylon on the sidelines, tossing a football from one hand to the other. Geeze, Braylon wanted to get out there and play!
I've said this before, but I'll have an update tomorrow or Monday.
I know, I have seen the other posts, and know you will usually get a report when the visits are done. The picture is just too good not to post though.
This update might not be when the visit is done....
Wow, this is the most anticipated "..." that I have ever read. This is the TVH gut feeling, no?
Lets hope that is the proper interpretation. The last 2 years has me so pessimistict that I read his comment as it could come much later, ie waaay after the visit.
I get a good chuckle out the picture everytime.
Tom, also, when you get around to it (we all know you are a busy guy), any recruiting ramifications from this game outside those recruits who were in the big house? Even though this is just one game, I'd be curious about how non-visiting recruits reacted..if anything stands out.
I'm sure his next post about recruiting will be primarily about Dee, but talking about all the other visitors as well.
I don't know if individual wins or losses really matter that much to recruits (unless they occur during their official visit - their one chance to take in the campus atmosphere). The bigger thing is just that they have a positive view of where the program is headed. Saturday was certainly a good step in that direction, but just one step.
it is pleasant to speak of highly sought after recruits having a good time at a Michigan victory.
