I don't know about you all, but I'm terribly excited to find out what the big news is supposed to be. Any intel on when its supposed to happen?
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
And it has sharks with fricken' laser beams attached to their heads!
That's in the basement of West Engineering. The NAME majors use it to test their submarines, boats and electric surfboards.
I hope you don't take this the wrong way but I'm guessing your Valentines Day didn't go as well as you wished. Creating accounts on online message boards and all.
said to look for a tweet from Ferns around 2 or 3 I believe. He hinted that it has to do with Ferns recruiting hard for this class. Maybe a visit set up by a stud, hard to imagine that Ferns would be announing a commitment......
I would love to see Damon Webb has de-committed!
It's been confirmed by multiple outlets that it's not a commitment or a visit.
not sure of his schedule, but how about governmentclass , math class or basketball practice
brady hoke- "kids need to be kids"
im guessing its a new facility / redoing schembechler hall
Michael Ferns, a HS JR, be the one to announce that facilites are being updated? That would be great. Facilities are great recruiting tools. However, it would be odd for Ferns to be the one to make this kind of announcement.
and future players benefiting from it.
We can't start a thread just because a recruit or commit says "something big is going to happen."
Maybe mid-terms are coming out. Maybe another kid is coming on "super visit weekend," Maybe mom made pizza rolls, Maybe the McRib is coming back for a month.
Let's just wait until there's actually something more than a tweet before we start making "watch" threads.
It's not just Ferns who tweeted this. Some people like the speculation and the anticipation of such news. It's the off-season so get over it and maybe not read it. No need to comment on what you approve or disapprove of...
...because never voicing disapproval makes perfect sense on a blog site that is largely self policed in regards to what type of content is tolerable.
FTR, the OP does not bother me, but telling people not to comment if they don't like a topic is an over used (and not well thought out) response.
If people disagree with the response, moderation will provide adequate warning.
Too much well thought out dissent gets moderated out as flamebait, trolling, off topic or redundant
policing the forum. When a mod does it, you won't normally have a thread to post to.
I think "something more" was when Tremendous said "it's not a commitment but it's still pretty sweet though."
DG gets his redshirt?
I hope it's this.
It would be like getting a 5* QB commit for 2014 (albeit, a one-and-done). It would go along nicely with the one-and-done OL 5* we just got for 2013.
This post isn't that bad.
It could be worse, like...oh I don't know. Starting a thread about the pope stepping down, locking the thread from all comments before anyone could comment, and saying "i'm just trying to get ahead of the inevitable" and then when it gets downvoted to hell removing the upvote/downvote function from it.
about Hoke sitting on his ass and not doing any recruiting?
Yeah, that was bad.
to down vote it twice... because once just isn't enough.
would be more understandable.
Okay, I'll admit when I'm wrong.
I thought I was on the site the whole day when your second post (which I thought was the first) popped up. Apparently it got bumped to the second page before I started lurking.
All I saw was your second post and thought you tried to hedge a bad post from ever popping up on a really off topic subject.
I now look like an ass, but I do apologize.
Sorry if that came off as overly defensive, but I did want to get things straight.
Nope it was perfectly fine. I had my facts wrong and called you out on something without knowing the whole story.
Meh. Wake me up when it's 99 cent McDLT combo with New Coke time.
Ahh, those were the days, when the Hot stayed Hot and the Cool stayed Cool!
McRib is coming back?!?! Sweet! That is great news, can’t believe McD’s holds them hostage as they do. Bringing them back only when they need to increase sales numbers. What month? /s
That McDonald's made every MdRib they sell back in the 80's and they have to ration them out so they can only bring them "back" for short periods at a time. So I hope you like you "meat" extra aged because each McRib has about 30 years of aging on it.
The McRib's appearance is based entirely on the prices of pork in the U.S. I'm not sure of the exact number, but when pork is sufficiently cheap, the McRib makes a comeback and when prices rise again, it is taken off the menu. Simple, really, and fascinating.
Quite the McRib lover myself.
More than a tweet. It's a hashtag.
Funniest thing I've seen here today.
Maybe another kid is coming on "super visit weekend"
...still, the pizza rolls would've been an awesome choice as well.
"We can't start a thread just because a recruit or commit says "something big is going to happen.""
Isn't that EXACTLY what fanbase message boards are for? Speculation and discussion as to what the current team/staff/players/school is excited about doing?
... and saved 15% on his insurance
Why would a recruit be announcing a new facility? Seems unlikely.
Ferns is coming to M to play LB and be an Assistant Athletic Director? By all accounts he's a very smart dude......
Could it be the announcement of another home night game? Is ND confirmed for 2013? Maybe it would be the UTL game for 2014?
Not to be a buzzkill but from what I am hearing, it's not something worth creating a thread for.
Hey everyone, I totally know the secret but I'm not telling you.
Okay OP. Let's play a game. I'm going to tell you that you are going to be horribly disappointed with a 90% chance of being correct.
Please let me know how you feel after the announcement comes out. Thanks.
That sounds like the 'let's see how fast you can clean your room well' game I used to play with my kids when they were younger.
Effective, but the final result was 'that's a game'?
/I like it
Ferns is going to announce that Hoke told him he's going to the NFL and that Gruden will take over as head coach.
