Big Michigan Football Surprise Open Thread
Dave Chappelle reference (Diddy/Making the Band sketch. "Breast miiiiiilk, you make my daaaaaayay!")
We just started a thread because a 16 year old kid said something cool is about to happen.
Big, if true.
I'm sorry, but I just don't see a kid who has yet to sign a letter of intent or is not yet in any way officially affiliated with the University of Michigan making any sort of announcement concering UM facilities, game schedules, or any matters that you would generally hear about from DB or Hoke directly.
In all likelihood, it probably has to do with with having a recruits/commits only get together later on in the process.
Wonder if it is related to Alvarez's announcement about the FBS scheduling...ie that it will have to do with us scheduling some stud teams for non-conference games.
that Ferns has convinced Kyle Berger to visit next weekend.
Most seem to think Berger is all OSU. OSU is after much higher regarded (at least by rankings) LBs in McMillan from GA, Clifton Garrett, and Booker from OH.
Maybe if Michigan gives a hard push and Berger doesn't like not being at the top of OSU's board, they could make up some ground.
And those other guys too? So, what do you know about who is the top of OSU's board right now? Is this Urban Meyer on mgoblog???
Kyle Berger definitely has an OSU offer and some who claim to have solid sources claim that Berger is 100% OSU.
I was simply pointing out that OSU is also hard after 3 other LBs who recruiting services currently have much higher. Ohio State fans seem to place them in the order of McMillan, Garrett, Booker, Berger, but some say that Berger may be higher than Booker because Booker may grow into a DE. But hey, Berger seems to not have gotten much of a look from recruiting sites yet so who knows where he will end up.
I was just observing that OSU has a smaller class next year and was wondering if something could change with Berger if OSU manged to get McMillan, Garrett, and Booker.
I am going to guess that the news itself will be less than hype.
Exactly, I think too much is being put into this.
john is a special teams guy..
I just dropped my phone from laughing so hard. Nice Christmas story reference.
Posts like this is why I can't wait for the old system to be reinstated. 5 does this no justice. Well played, well played.
After being released from the Greenbay Packers, Charles Woodson has decided to coach the secondary for the University of Michigan.
A man can dream!
Wait, doesn't he have a year of eligibility left?
Technically, yes he does. He would though have to convince the NCAA to sign a waiver disregarding his pro athletic career and any income that he might have had because of his athletic ability. Also, since his 5 year window has closed he would have to receive an extension to that. Hey, the way the NCAA is operating, anything's possible.
Fingers crossed that that's the surprise.
TOOL IS COMING BACK TO THE PALACE.
He will also announce that opening for Tool will be Puscifer and A Perfect Circle. This would certainly be the best case scenario.
Krusty - We have to stop selling the ribwich becuase the animal it was made of is now extinct.
Homer - Cows?
Krusty - Think smaller, more legs.
Full of win right here...
I heard the news was that Ferns has been named to the all-plant-name team, and the selection was unanimous.
Ferns said on twitter it has nothing to do with jerseys or the big house, he also stated if you get #project135 trending in twitter he will give a hint, if not 5 or 6. I think this ways blown way out of proportion, it looks nothing more then a recruiting tool. hope it works
I have a good idea of what is happening, but I don't want to ruin any of the surprise. It won't be too big of a big "shock" to most...
come from electricity. Electricity powers lighbulbs. Lighbulbs are screwed in with your hand. Hand is the name of . . .
It checks out.
I will never understand these types of post , Why tell us you know but won't share?? Are you craving attention? Want to be the in guy on the blog?
Project 135 is an initiative to establish an actual B1G caliber supermarket in Detroit.
so no updates on this?
Nope. Nada. Zilch
leak of his big news? Maybe it's not such big news ...
His eggo is preggo.
Picture or I don't believe it
Charles Woodson jumped on the first plane from Green Bay and is being introduced as a special assistant. Maybe more of a dream.
Meteor hit the Horseshoe? Sorry The Horseshoe.
Not sure it has been mentioned on the board but Ferns is up to 6'3" 240lbs and maintaining his speed.(allegedly)
announcement supposed to occur around 3 today? Where is the big news?
If Ferns is up to 6'3 and 240 with top-tier speed at LB, that's better news than 95% of the guesses in this thread.
I'm pretty sure he said between 5 and 6.
I'll give him 18 min ...
New Nike contract perhaps???
Commence project 136!
It's a shirt ferns just tweeted it
It does show a true dedication to Michigan to go all in as to invest in shirts to give out to spread the word. High character fellow, that guy.
A high school kid did not announce that the University of Michigan is dropping Addidas for Nike?
this is going to end poorly...there are already people tweeting him offering to buy one of the shirts. i dont think a recruit selling shirts to fans will fly with the ncaa.
Just because people have offered to buy them doesn't mean he'll go for it. I'm guessing he has gone over this with the coaches, or the coaches have reached out to him about it. I agree with you that if he turned it into a business there would be an issue, but if he gives them away to fans randomly there shouldn't be an issue.
He has told some of the people asking to buy that it's only available through a contest. So he won't sell them.
