Auburn Site Claims Derrick Green Is An Auburn Lean
Let's not make fun of this, because as we all know, anything is possible. This would suck if it turned out to be true and then we would all look like idiots for calling Auburn fans stupid.
Mike Farrell, who is the insider closest to Derrick Green, says that Auburn is a distant third behind Michigan and Tennessee. To put it in terms Auburn fans will understand, this is hogwash.
I think Florida St. will end up being a bigger issue than UT or Auburn will be in the end. FSU always seems to do well in the home stretch to signing day.
I haven't seen one interview where he even lists FSU in his top five. Miami yes, FSU no.
Farrell seems to reiterate his point again today, saying Michigan is on top and it's tough to see anyone else getting him.
I know we make fun of Farrell but the guy did predict Levenberry's destination.
It makes sense that he knew because they only speak with Farrell because Rivals has him ranked so high.
I think it's the other way around - they rank him so high because he speaks with Farrell so much.
It's the same reason that Levenberry is/was ranked so high by Rivals but everyone else thinks he's just pretty good.
Agreed, for two reasons:
1) Kids change their minds more often than they change their underwear.
2) Auburn boosters are infamous even by SEC standards.
Until signing day or he has signed, I won't believe anything! I don't know how to feel on this one, something is keeping him from just coming out with it. I can say it makes me a wee nervous about the situation.
Auburn can get whomever they really want to get!
Reminds me of the old Iraqi war minister who said they were currently crushing the American invaders.
I believe you're referring to the General formerly known as "Baghdad Bob".
He's since changed hair styles
an SEC website making some unsubstantiated claim. Until we hear words from Derrick Green to the contrary, we should still feel pretty good.
TideDamnRoll told me he's a UM lean. I trust him.
I've got a bad feeling about this...
Hey guys.... Derrick Green is a Toledo lean. Seriously!
There. Now there is a website claiming that Green is a Toledo lean. Let's see if the Auburn site starts to melt down.
Don't hate. That's the video that got me to enroll there.
Actually, I haven't been this embarrassed to be enrolled there since the "Worst Freethrow Attempt Ever" video.
Wow, that video kind of just kept going and going. I thought it would be done, and lo and behold, it just kept going.
"We'll fight like our ancestors"? Random.
I go to toledo...and yes we have the shittiest fight song ever.
They have a nice marmot.
But they sure can't roll.
The only thread I have ever created on this site was to relay that Jordan Diamond had eliminated Auburn and was down to M and Arkansas. That info came from a Brian Cook approved source who was helping Diamond personally with his recruiting. Turns out Diamond surprised everyone, including my source, and committed to Auburn days later. IIRC they also surprised by getting Kozan who was an M lean. These things happen.
I want to play and DESTROY Auburn.
I have three daughters, and following Michigan recruiting is the only approved non weekend manly activity I get.
Recruiting is a manly? AND an activity?
Michigan recruiting" at least qualifies as an activity.
A man with a wife and 3 kids (and I'm speaking from experience) gets little "me" time. If one chooses to use that little time to follow UM recruiting I will not judge.
My children and wife know my compulsion (addiction?) for following Michigan sports. At least they tolerate it. It is free (relatively) and while they would prefer I do something else, it is one little sliver of life I choose for myself. Thankfully.
great comment, I did laugh out loud, thanks.
I'll take what the kid said about Michigan having the lead over what a bunch of toothless ones from the ESS EEE SEE claim.
Maybe he had a sit down with Jordan Diamond's accounting professor....
Signing day can't come fast enough
on Nancy in the Sky with Diamonds (see what I did there?).
Table talk! Renege!
I mean it's perfectly possible that he goes to Auburn. But I've got to think that the Auburn info is off considering all the very recent positive comments about UM, and the fact that he stated multiple times UM is the leader and he knows where he's going. Plus he wouldn't want to crush the little kids dreams whose flag he signed with the other UM commits at the AA game, would he?
In this twitter account they added a blue "verification" check mark to the background to make themselves look official. Who ever runs this twitter account must be one sad/messed up individual.
And to think Green would choose Auburn is ridiculous. He had said that he does no want to play in a spread and nobody seems to be talking about Auburn as much as Michigan and Tenn.
that is soooo lame to do that. Tweeting at him as we speak to embarrass him...
DK finest to weigh in on this and give us the truth.........
twin brother BKFinest for all my recruiting info.
It depends on whether or not his dad needed money for a church expansion
Mean Fightin' Machine!
There are a lot of shitty boards out there where posters put all this "inside information" and how much of it turns out to be true. This is one of the few sites where you better back up your claims with some credible sources.
If recruiting is not safe for kids under 48" in height, how did Rich Rodriguez recruit his receiver corp?
