to you, my friend. Pow!
Auburn Site Claims Derrick Green Is An Auburn Lean
You never really know what's going to happen in recruiting. That being said, in the complete absence of any corroborating information this looks like trolling for page clicks.
No idea if this is true or not, and won't know until Green says so.
That said, there is no fan base as delusional as Auburn.
Noter Dame? I mean they thought they could beat Alabama in NC.
Ive never really believed Green is coming here and won't believe until he signs on the dotted line. It just seems like he is always looking for reasons not to go to Michigan.
Since he hasn't committed anywhere is he also looking for reasons not to go to all those other places??
Auburn is actually more delusional than Notre Dame. Really...trust me.
That's all I needed to hear. I trust this guy because he told me to. No one who has ever used "trust me" has ever lied. It's a fact, trust me.
Alabama wins with a great O line and a great RB year in and year out. They also put RB's in the NFL in the first round and alot of that is that O line. They are full at RB. Any thoughts on who has pulled in a huge O line haul the last 2 years that needs a RB and also will have a highly touted QB coming in. Green comes here and in 3 years he is a NFL 1st rounder.
Until his name is on that dotted line, i wouldn't count any team out.
I know this is how recruiting goes and I'm not trying to censor what people post etc. But, the only information left to be heard for on this subject is who he commits to. There is really nothing more I want to hear about Green. We know he's interested, we know he's a good fit, we know he likes our coaches, we know we have a shot. Anything other than him giving his verbal somewhere or signing his LOI is only frustrating at this point.
If there is nothing more you want to hear about Green, don't click links that are very clearly going to include more speculation.
It's like watching a car crash. No one wants to see the damage, but it's hard not to look when you know it's there.
You just need to admit to yourself that you can't help it and click. You don't need to hold up the pretense for our sake, believe me. A click will set you free.
I know I will be downvoted to Siberia for this, but lets learn from what happened with Garnett and not assume that Green is a lock just because he named Michigan as a slight leader...
for thinking you get downvoted to Siberia.
Siberia may very well be harsher than Bolivia... it is winter time...
I know I'll get upvoted to, um, Like Bikal? for this, but let's learn from what happened with Ondre Pipkins and assume that we're in very good shape because Michigan is a slight leader.
That's not a good comparison. By this time last year, the only people who thought Michigan led for Garnett were Michigan homers. Everyone else was saying Stanford. (People were more confident on Garnett earlier in the process, but that petered out).
I pretty sure that Garnett stated that Michigan had a slight lead all the way until the end, he even mentioned afterwards that he seriously thought that he would end up at Michigan, but wanted for his family to attend all his home games... There was a minority who thought he would go to Stanford due to proximity, and better weather and academics.
Going into NSD, every analyst at both Scout and Rivals predicted him to go to Stanford. Unless your info was solely based on MGoBoard material, I'm not sure where you're getting it from.
I am getting it from Garnett who was quoted to say that Michigan had a slight lead... analysts on Rivals and Scout also predicted that Diamond would end up at Michigan, so lets not pump them up too much...
I didn't see him posing in pictures with Auburn recruits. Thats all I have to say about that.
Maybe the joke is on me, but you linked to a twitter feed from "Eagle Damn War".
Seems to me that someone we know is just stirring the pot...
ugh let's please stop talking about green until he actually commits somewhere. until he does that, there really is nothing else to say about him. we'll have a great recruiting class with or without him.
Yeah, besause that's how this "following recruiting" thing works. We don't talk about anyone until and unless they commit somewhere...
We've seen quite a few recruits from all over the country who were very unlikely to choose Auburn suddenly change their mind for no real reason what so ever. The bottom line is Auburn pays better (semi allegedly).
Someone wake me when its signing day, until that day ill be nervous about all are commits.
You will be nervous again at the end of the day in anticipation of 2014 recruits. It's a vicious cycle.
That EagleDamnWar guy doesn't seem very reputable, to be honest. I'll take the word of Green himself.
I've learned that the best source for unbiased information is not always a site that benefits from its homer readers.
I smell a Southern Ace Williams here.
DERRICK GREEN WILL BE A AUBURN TIGER I PROMISE
NOBODY TURNS DOWN AN OFFER FROM THE BEST FOOTBALL PROGRAM IN THE SOUTH
NICE TRY MICHIGAN BUT THIS KID IS ALL OURS
WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!
You created an account and have been waiting for this day patiently. Kudos.
Your not even the best football program in a 100 mile radius...
2) Troy State
3) Tie- Auburn, Alabama State
best program in the south? well, maybe, but i hear they got this program down in tuscaloosa that's supposed to be pretty good, too. their coach isn't too shabby from what i hear, either. how did auburn do against them this year? how about last year?
Yes, I want him to commit and turn out to be all-world.
It's just... watching his film, I was surprised he was considered the #1 RB.
To see if I was the only one, I googled Derrick Green Overrated, and what do you know... Magnus agrees with me on his site.
I talked a lot of shit about Magnus in the past, but I think his assessment of Green is spot on. Good call Mags.
What Magnus thinks after Green's senior year.
Well, Green's senior highlights are significantly more impressive than his junior highlights. He shows better vision and balance.
That being said, I still don't really understand why he's ranked as the #1 running back. The only way he actually performs like the #1 running back in this class is if he gets an outstanding offensive line, like the one at Alabama or the one Wisconsin has had for the last several years. I still prefer someone like Keith Ford or Altee Tenpenny.
Green would be the best RB in Michigan's class if he commits, though.
Because, ALTEE TENPENNY
Why doesn't he just turn in his last name and become Altee Dime?
Thanks for making me spit/laughingly on my phone!
My understanding is that rankings are based on potential, so things like size, speed, agility and vision are paramount... now whether we need a Barry Sanders type more than a Bo Jackson type is a different question.
