This isn't the Scout/Rivals free board. If there is word, someone will post on it.
Any word on Shaw? I thought we'd know yesterday...
HE ARE A SPEED BACK
Well, I ARE A COLLEGE GRADUTE!
Ya I was really surprised when RR said they STILL didn't know about his eligibility as of yesterday.
I know we have a lot of available running backs, but with Toussaint injured, it would be nice to have Shaw and Smith as some guys with experience.
On another note, does anyone know how Toussaint is doing and if he'll be able to go on Saturday?
I would have assumed that him being listed in the first slot with Vincent Smith on the depth chart would have been a clue.
Sam Webb today said he was guessing they would know wednesday or thursday. He had a good feeling about Shaw being eligible but said he did not know.
Whenever Sam Webb "has a good feeling" about something it's pretty much true.
not always, when he has a "gut feeling" it's a lock.
on Tony Grimes? Or was it Rashad Knight?
I don't know if those guys were ever regarded as "gut feelings."
I do know that Sean Parker was silently committed to Michigan, at least for a short time. Sam can't help it if a kid changes his mind. I seem to recall that Parker was doing some recruiting for M while at the Army AA game, and was to be on the cover of GBW's recruiting edition.
a shot at Sam Webb, as I believe that whenever this happens, a kid actually has given a silent commit, and then changes.
But it's precisely because they change their minds (and it seems as it's happening more and more each year) that a gut feeling ain't worth what it used to be, and is certainly not a stone cold lock anymore.
he did preface it by saying he had no inside information...and it wasn't a 'gut feeling'.
And I would have assumed that since it hasn't been updated since the 27th that it doesn't mean much, considering that he hadn't taken his test yet.
I hope that info isn't released until 30 seconds before kickoff.... Edsall shouldn't be the only one w/ the gamesmanship.
My guess is they're still waiting to hear what his grade was for the class he took? It's probably bad form to email the professor and tell him/her to hurry up with the grades because they've got a game to play etc. I'm just assuming he did fine.
You're right, text is more polite.
and together they got Cameron to take a couple of finals for Mike...
Rather choice, if you have the means...
When Ferris Bueller's Day Off arrived in theatres. To say that I, uh, fantasized about Mia Sara would be an understatement. She was the ideal girlfriend, IMHO.
I think a previous post from FormerWolv said that Shaw was taking his test today. If so, that would fit with the Sam Webb statement that we should know on Wed/Thurs.
that? Come on holmes...
Tim posted them earlier today.
Shaw and Smith - "They've been the most consistent." Well-rounded with running, protection, and receiving. They understand offense the best. Michael Shaw's eligibility will be known in next couple days.
UMgoblog just tweeted that sources are saying that Shaw is eligible, but I am guessing the same sources said lebron was going to cleveland, chicago, new york and miami.
I can attest to the fact that their source on this one is legit. Or at least legit enough to have a reason to start celebrating.
