I have to believe he's fucking with us.
...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
I have to believe he's fucking with us.
The equivalent of Dee Hart's twats to the Orlando Sentinel about how he's high on Alabama?
Arnett:Michigan :: Hart:Alabama?
Or was it on purpose?
I talked with him for about 30 minutes at Lamarr Woodley's football camp this summer. Started by wishing him well as he had eliminated us at this point and he told me he was still talking with the coaches. We got into a conversation about how I thought Michigan would do and I told him we would go 8-4, 7-5 at worst. He thought I was crazy and continued to ask me questions about my opinion on the program and how soon we would be back.
Maybe the start and the amount we are throwing the ball has peaked his interest again. Going into this season State was protrayed as the passing team and their pasing numbers have dropped off drastically with a returning junior starter. Let this one play out and see what happens though I would rather have Watkins (speed kills).
The tape I've seen of Arnett running routes is gorgeous. So fluid. I'd have a hard time believing speed would be a knock on Arnett.
with a bye this week and a road game the next but hey I'll accept anyone as a fan. Especially 4* in state WRs....
Yeah, he's just trying to get our hopes up to make his recruitment more exciting. Now that he's down to 2nd level schools he doesn't get as much media attention as he did when he was considering the best of the best.
RR+ Fred J on the recruiting = good players
I want to beleive this..but I will not try to get my hopes up too high. This would be a huge grab for us though! Oh..and we would keep him from State....MWAHAHA
Yeah personally I wouldn't read too much into it, but who knows.
UM coaches were on the recruiting trail this week (I bet RR made a trip personally), and we lose interest in AJ who goes to Wisconsin.
Everyone thought Crawford was our only big time target. But this makes more sense to me.
I think if you are talking about WR's, then it's Watkins not Crawford.
Wouldn't it be great to see one of these things go our way for once? Snakeoiling Arnett would be awesome on so many levels.
I'll believe he's serious when I see him on a visit. I'd be more than happy if he decided to join the Wolverines, but this seems extremely odd. I bet one of his cooky friends went on his laptop to play a prank on him with twitter. Damn kids.
Arnett, Hart, DRobinson would be a killer Trio
He's probably on Mgoblog right now seeing what we're all saying
Well, iIf we can't get him, I don't want to play against him. I could live with that. (But according to TomVH's update, we may have a legit shot.)
With Denard recruiting, anything is possible
I really love Michigan and have been a fan since I was a little boy. I will not visit Ann Arbor once and commit to the Crimson Tide after taking only one visit.
I am focusing on going somwhere that I can play right away. Since I am a LB recruit I am going to go to OSU.
I want to focus on academics. WVU is the place for me!
/Kids will be kids...
As soon as I hear that from the lips of a recruit, I know he's not coming to Michigan. Sort of like Myron Rolle choosing FSU. (Sure, he did well there academically, but FSU?)
Yeah, FSU, the only school that was legitimately offering him the chance to do both pre-med and football at the same time. Basically everyone else on his list told him, in some way or another, that it would be too difficult to do both.
Perhaps if our coaches would have seriously given him a chance to do both, he would have won a Rhodes scholarship here instead of at FSU.
FSU truly did sell him on academics, they have an excellent honors program and it's no coincidence that they have had multiple Rhodes scholars in recent years.
I wanna get Bouje in here to rehash this discussion again. That was an epic negbang party.
That is funny, but too far...
From what I saw on Rivals recently he sounded like a Cal lock
We would love to have you here DeAnthony! The #1 jersey is still up for grabs if you're willing to work for it.
This would be a left field type of thing. Next Lawrence Thomas will do the same thing.
This may have nothing to do with football, he may just be an outspoken fan of certain primary colors.
"Old School" for the first time.... He will be sad when he gets to the part where Blue dies...
Could the "Go Blue" be somehow directed to the Cal Bears and not us?
There is no way anyone who grows up in Michigan wouldn't know what he is saying by tweeting Go Blue, impossible. Like others have pointed out there's plenty of reason to suspect this being sarcastic or him creating drama but not a mistake.
We don't need another WR, we need LBs and DLs and DBs. Offense sells tickets, but defense will save RR's job.
A kicker who can manage to get an occasional kickoff into the end zone would be nice too.
...but, Arnett is damn good. Every team in the country could use him. I'd love for him to go Blue, but more important that he doesn't go green...
The staff sees our guys every day. They know what our needs are. If they deem a kid worthy of recruitment, we have to give them the benefit of the doubt. We don't have enough information at our disposal to argue otherwise. The only thing I think we can really criticize them for is if they target a bunch of academically-borderline guys. We've gotten burned too much on them lately.
Stonum, Hemmingway, and Odoms are all juniors. He'll be a sophomore when we lose our 3 biggest threats on the outside. I'm glad the coaching staff isn't as short sighted as you.
Not judging at all, but do you all really know and follow each recruit like that? You make me feel like less of a Michigan fan.
IS a big Michigan fan. Also, he could certainly be the mystery recruit. It would not surprise me at all.
Arnett just wants to be big on the recruiting scene and i wouldn't put it past him at all to just throw something up to cause a little stir. If it is something solid though, it could be a great sign because the kid looks like a player.
If Arnett paid any attention he'd figure out that this is a dynamic offense that would get him the ball allot...
