Buckle Up Prediction Thread
I like how we now have an overflow thread about a two word tweet.
Wormley's visiting today and Wilson could be announcing. My guess is it's related to one or both of them.
And there ain't nothing wrong about that.
Well, that's alot better than desperately hoping to flip some academic non-qualifier on signing day.
Still too soon man, it still stings.
The only way to ease the tension:
we need a thread of relaxing muzak. Gimmie Chuck Mangione and a paper bag to breathe into and I can weather this commit storm.
A fan of King of the Hill?
There has to be at least one out there.
I fucking love king of the hill.
I have been reading this blog since New Math and have rarely posted here. I swore off posting, but as you can tell I love that show. I never thought I would see the day King of the Hill was spoken of on these boards.
Tom is going to a doctor's appointment as we speak.
Predictions for what it's for?
I'm thinking something to do with recruiting.
It is literally 2 posts below this
So, which is it: [Literally] or [Litterally]?
He litterally tossed his trash on the ground
Wormley and Kalis commit while toasting Brian at his wedding...
Shhh...that sounds like impermissible benefits. Especially if Brian's wedding is open bar....
"Take it easy Rodney."
"Open bar Chief."
Kalis just decomitted from OSU, I think he's going to want some time to review everything before jumping ship, especially since he was all "I love OSU, I'm going to recruit hard for them, etc." To switch to archrival Michigan practically overnight would be, well, overwhelming. I don't expect this, but it would be very welcome.
As for everything else, well, we shall see.
He decommitted from OSU awhile back and was talked into recommitting. This isn't as sudden as you make it sound.
At this point this joke should be neg on sight with how overused it was in the other topic.
But - go with me here - what if Tom was actually talking about driving, and not recruiting?
That would constitute a gross abuse of his power. Legally speaking he knows or should know that something like this would happen, and the rash of high blood pressure related ailments and strokes would constitute grounds for legitimate tort claims against him.
i wonder if tomvh is aware of the reaction a potentially harmless tweet could warrant. if he really meant nothing recruiting related by his tweet, he must be laughing at the thought that 2 posts with over a combined 300 threads have been made within the 3-4 hours about nothing. if he ever needed an ego boost...
did we really need another thread?
Tom knows something about Wilson committing... you know, buckle up for "safety"?
This is actually a really good guess. I'll vote for this one.
But I'll guess that the tweet wasn't a word game. This same comment also exists at least 4 other times in the other thread on this topic.
Wormley will be in town today and with the number crunch on the defensive line I believe that he will be the next commit followed shortly by Wilson. Kalis will commit on Sunday.
So...I guess I don't need to bother returning that video to Red Box?
I work there :)
Kenny G plays a set naked on national TV while Ron Artest (Mr. Peace) shaves him.
That dude was awesome in Pirates. Davy Jones always spooks me.
My prediction is that that tweet causes a 160 post thread to start.
And later, a couple really good high school football players will say they want to play for Michigan, and more posts will be made.
I predict General Zod and the other criminal Kryptonians imrpisoned in the Phantom Zone break free and pledge their services to OSU, initiating a superhuman recruit race which will culminate with Denard beating the Flash in a QB competition. Buckle up indeed.
The Flash is a running back. Denard is a QB.
Also, General Zod took improper benefits, so while he could probably suit up at OSU, I hear that they will soon be short on scholarships.
As we all know, the recruiting services projected Flash as an athlete and said he would best fit at tailback or slot, he wanted to compete for QB. Had to give him his shot or risk losing him to Nebraska. He already wears red, after all...
Tate Forcier transfers to Northern
My prediction is that Wilson is commiting somewhere else and he is saying buckle up because the wrath that will ensue because of us splitting ways with Wayne Morgan.
Ahh...bummer prediction, man. That's like, um, your opinion, man.
its preventing myself from having a let down. And going against the grain a little bit. lol
Awww, buckle this: LUDICROUS SPEED, GOOOO!!!

Well, it's 2:45. Wilson is meeting with his coaches right now, and Thurston is announcing at 3:00. I'm optimistic about one of those..
I'm more optimistic about Thurston than others are. People think he's an automatic Nebraska lock because he visited twice but he visited twice because the first time he never got a chance to see campus. I'm not banking on him to commit but it's very possible.
Yeah, but reading his last interview at Scout, it sounded as if he was Nebraska-bound. I think we have a shot but it would be a mild surprise if he went blue. Well find out shortly anyway.
If he were going to commit to Neb, why not do it on the visit? Yes, some kids like to do the presser thing, but many today seem to enjoy giving the news to the coach in person and then being pointed at by said coach.
Don't be so quick to write him off to Neb.
By the way, how would you compare him to some of the others that we are recruiting for the same spot?
One reason to not commit on a visit is just to get a chance to sleep on it. I imagine things can be overwhelming when you're on campus and you might be prone to make a rash decision. If he wants to commit and still feels the same way a week later then he's probably making the right call.
If we can get Thurston, then let's do it. He can play both tackle spots, and is a consensus 4-star to all sites.
Seatbelts will unbuckle
Brian has discovered that Jim Tressel was tweeting naked pix of himself to his fiancée, and the wedding is totally off.
Jim will respond to these allegations to Brian, by saying, "Brian, I had no idea that I was actually hitting the reply button on my phone. I didn't know which proper channels to deliver this information to, and the last thing I wanted to do was be involved in some sort of scandal..."
Kalis will get on board before the weekend is over.
Wormley and Wilson commit today. Kalis commits tomorrow. Diamond and Dunn commit on Monday. That would be seatbelt-worthy!
It would take a lot more than a seatbelt to contain me from that.
That would be INSANE. The best part is that I think that we actually lead for all of those players. Could this class be over 20 within a week?
Jack Kennedy is 6'5", runs a 4.5 and is miles ahead of Denard and Devin on the depth chart... By the power of his will, he made Dorial Green- Beckham, Nick Fairley, Ed Reed, and Barry Sanders join the squad....
Which is worth nothing:
1) Wilson commits today.
2) Wormley tomorrow.
3) Dunn publicly decommits from OSU tomorrow.
4) No new Kalis news, but on Monday (maybe late Sunday night) Tom posts an interview with Kalis where he raves about everything (coaches, facilities, campus, players, fellow recruits, etc), but concludes with something like, "Michigan is definitely in theleader, but I'm still going to take a visit to Alabama and Miami (YTM)."
5) He will actually say, "Parenthesis, why-tee-em. parenthesis" after the word "Miami" which will cause some MGoCommenters to refer to him henceforth as "Kyle Kalis (pbuh)."
decides to add an additional 100k seats to the big house along with a maize field for the night game vs. ND.
Gunner Kiel all but says Oklahoma is too far and it'd be too wierd to compete for the same spot against his brother. I think that leaves Michigan, which is only a four hour drive from home . . .
Put the chicken near your mouth.
You can't start a prediction thread without offering a prize for the winner
Actually, it's all being blown out of proportion. Tom's just really excited about Cars 2.
Some of us are going to get in a wee bit of trouble over a profound dip in productivity at the old workplace......
the whole "buckle up" thing actually is a safety warning. TVH is predicting that Dunn will announce his decommitment and he and Kalis will simultaneously commit to M. The entire city of Cbus will implode, causing an earthquake to rumble all the way through AA. Everyone get your helmets too.
and you are correct.
- None of get done nearly as much work as we had planned on doing earlier. **
- Something happens to someone that Michigan is recruiting and when it happens new posts will be made to speculate on what this means.
- We hear at least 50 more people posting about roller coasters, bumpy rides, or Tom reminding people to be safe while driving.
- The names Wilson, Wormley, Kalis and Dunn become more used than condoms between the mgocommunity.
- Tom eats 3 bags of popcorn while reading both threads committed to his 2 word tweet while chuckling at our predictions.
- 3 or more of us decide that we should take up smoking as it is far less addictive than this site.
**Unless of course your work depends on you driving between places in which case you now feel you are expected to speed between stops to check for a commitment here. Whilst being buckled up as Tom suggested that you do.
Not a cat picture, but:
BUT we all have to look at this objectively and not put all the cart before the horse! Kalis is going to take his time and not be too hasty...besides according the some Miami sites they are CHOMPING at the bit to get him on campus and are pulling out their big guns!! Dunn on the other hand is the sleeper in my eyes....i think he will want to stick it to tOSU then back it up on the field. Wilson and Wormly are dark horses....a majority saying Wormly is a lock to us might need that seatbelt if he thumbs his nose at us...and Wilson who knows.
TomVH listens to Joe Rogan podcast?
95% sure Tom means Kalis. He's been quick to jump in whenever somebody here has been the least bit pessimistic about getting him. His commitment would cause the biggest stir of those that seem plausible.
Wormley and/or Wilson would be nice too.
Just found this article from chatsports.com. Not sure of the credentials and I apologize if this is a late post, but here is the link.
