Oh god please.
Awesome Michigan Kicking Prowess...........(Help me TomVH, you're our only hope!)
Has he made it official that hes going to Miami?
I thought he was still undecided.
When you're at about -100, you need to make a celebratory thread so we can all bang you home to positive digits.
I second this.
Maybe we should test the power of the pos-bang? Anyone think we could get him in the black with one pos-bang thread right now?? Could be a fun Friday afternoon activity . . .
I'll bet it could happen if he posts in it like 4 times. Then everyone that comes accross it can rock him up 4 times.
Lets try . . . Give me a minute.
but still a few posbangs short myself...
Count me in.
Yes, your rise from the ashes has been one of the great positive stories of 2010 and early 2011. An appropriate celebration must be in order.
It will be a glorious day for sure, only made possible by having great mgofriends but I sure am going to miss the Cholitas.
Fu I dont know if I was on one of my sabaticals or what but how again did you wind up riding the negative train so far down again?
Look at his signature.
Now I know... I should probably start paying attention to signatures now.
From -4800 to -2200 in less than a week.
Busier than Brandon. Impressive.
I guess I don't understand why Goudis switched his commitment. How much of a change in philosophies can it be for the kicker?
Too bad for him. He would have been touched.
enough with the touching.
I'm just glad RR never said anything about touching kids. The Freep Jihad would have been oh so much uglier.....
His responsibilities are not changing, but who he has to answer to has changed, and unless he was totally sold on the school, why not look elsewhere? Especially if that school has coaches on staff who you would be answering to, unlike Michigan, as far as I know. I don't think Goudis would be gone had this transition happened earlier, but it might be a little late for us with a Miami visit in recent memory for him as he decides where he'll attend in the coming weeks.
because he caught wind that Hoke might bring a coach on that would supervise kickers and that's, like, not his style.
I think there was a laces out versus laces in issue. Hoke likes 'em in.
What are Denard's thoughts on that?
Maybe RR promised him he'd use the swinging gate formation on PAT's and Hoke won't make that promise.
Can someone explain to me why a coaching change makes a kicker decommit? Dude, you wack off during practice all day and then kick the ball every once in a while. You aren't guaranteed to go to the NFL, so go to a school that will give you a degree that will mean something when you graduate. If you are chasing hot chicks at Miami, don't worry about it. You are a kicker and you'll never pull ass anyway.
If I had to guess, he probably changed his commit to here because of either RichRod or whichever coach on the staff that was recruiting him. That relationship was severed when the coaching staff was fired. Maybe that was a good part of the reason he decided to come here. Maybe the turmoil of the coaching search and the length of it played a part.
Most likely it was the coaching change. It'd be very easy to get attached to a certain coach, especially if they were recruiting you as hard as I imagine Rodriguez was due to our kicking situation.
He saw progress under RR and is concerned that the progress won't continue over the next 3 or 4 years with a new coach.
Funny Schit,because its true.
Personally, I'm pulling for the random students
Are very high on Michigan. I bet they make him wait until he talks to Brady first.
You know how those chicks on South Beach love kickers!
Those who come can be champions... Those Who Stay Will Be Champions! If he wants to go play for miami good luck. He'll enjoy the view looking up at us in a yr or 2.
Munch. Who care's we've driven off our best recruits for 2011? We've got a Michigan man endorsed by Lloyd on board now, boy howdy! Let the rubber field pellets fly! Let's have a Michigan Ho down and remember the good 'ol days! (of losing bowl games every year...). Hail Lloyd!!!
I am not familiar with this saying but am intrigued . . . Can I have the root of origin, please?
If you kick a field goal in Miami's stadium and no one is there to see it, does it even count?
At least he'll have a tan and can go party at South Beach later.
Then again, having nobody show up for your games might take the pressure off of the kicker.
I heard we were getting a commitment from this girl...She's already die hard blue and I heard she'll knock balls through the uprights all day...
even better is, she is wearing Nike....
I am having a hard time getting on this kids case
He was the other California kicker (with terrific grades) who'd just gotten a Michigan offer, and was very high on it, when Goudis switched over, making the timing of Goudis' switch pretty interesting considering they trained together. Is he still out there? I think Loftus was considering Stanford too. Would he feel less warm toward Michigan since this firing/hiring mess? Stanford's lost their head coach too, so I've heard, but probably keeps much of the rest of their staff, system and players. Anyone know anything?
According to Rival's databank...Connor is still uncommitted
Can we have a source for this?
I say we offer a carton of cigarettes and go after Nigel "The Leg" Gruff. He probably still has eligibility left, as he was a soccer player before crossing picket lines.
Personally, if we're going to talk fictional kickers...
Kathy Ireland might not be much worse than what we have.
After all, Goudis decommitted from Boise St to commit to Michigan. It's like if you start dating someone that was going out with someone else when you first started seeing her. Are you all that surprised when you find her making out with your best friend in the bathroom during your Halloween party?
I mean, not that it ever happened to me or anything like that... Forget it. I'm outta of here.
