here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Was just about to say this. It may still be processing, I guess.
Actually, the video was there - I watched it when the OP first put up the link. And what he said was true. But its weird that its gone now. Its also weird that the video was up so fast.
It's here now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZViRBV-Ews
Is this nearly inaudible for anybody else?
It was quiet for me, but i could hear it fine when i cranked my speakers up.
Do you mind uploading in portrait view for us android users?
You are full of sausage
Is that a bad thing?
That depends on how it got there.
Your phone is a dirty liar.
This link works, thanks.
I've got to wonder about their "sources"...
The reporter said "he is set to transfer, and an announcement could be as early as tommarrow." Lies? Maybe.
I hope that Tate can pull it together and stay. He will be a part of something special if he does. If not this is the ultimate Sports Illustrated cover jinx
As early as tomorrow...or as late as never.
I am sorry, but that woman should not be doing sports reporting. As a self-appointed representative of the sports obsessed male pigs in this world a female sports reporter is required to be hot and she just aint cutting it. The crap flowing from her mouth I found rather distasteful also. Go interview some of the Sparty players in the pokey for some interesting stories about soap, sharpened toothbrushes and male bonding.
I think she was reading the story from the teleprompter being operated by some guy wearing a sweatervest sipping a wine cooler.
The initial rumor can't be trusted because it's from a woman who looks good in a bikini and now this one's unacceptable because the woman's not attractive. That's logical.
Yes it is from the pig headed armchair QB angle I was trying to create. It, like nearly everything I ever post, was in jest to get a reaction.
Here is the clip:
As far as I can tell, the original poster did nothing but state what he heard on a news program that is known in the Detroit area and <em>could</em> have some credibility. Let's not bash him for doing this; even if we don't like the reported story.
Agreed. He's just telling us what he heard. And it's from an arguably major source, being one of the flagship metro area news stations. I still think it sounds sketchy; they sure didn't go into detail on it.
All this rumor and internet bs seriously makes it hard to trust anything anymore. I don't like it.
More like television BS at this point, since there is proof of what was said on the show. Either way, Tate's decision could change overnight so no one really "knows".
If a got a dime everytime i heard Tate was transferring i could create my own Crap Spewing Rumor Network, or CSRN.
Where there's smoke, there's usually fire...
uh-oh. magnus, do you know something?
No, Magnus doesn't know anything more than the rest of us ... or Rob Parker.
I will give you half my MGoPoints--or sweet talk Geaux_Blue into granting you the equivalent of it--if you start a DONT PANIC OUR THIRD STRING QB IS LEAVING thread.
Just for old times sakes.
That's . . . not a bad idea.
Well she is smoking hot.
After Tate's performace on Saturday, I would not be surprised if he transfered. Once you start getting all wrapped up in your own self-pity, it can lead to all kinds of ill thought out decisions...
Sports Final Edition is coming on in 5 minutes. Better get my camera out and start recording the TV. lmao
They auto-record the channel you're watching. Hit rewind and presto. No advance planning required. It's 2010, not 1988.
The video everyone's referencing is recorded with a camera.
1. Pick up iPhone and get ready to record; 2: Rewind DVR; 3: Push play on DVR; 4: Push record on iPhone; 5: Upload to Youtube from iPhone; 6: Publish link
Welcome to 2010!
And... you're missing the joke...
Guess you had to be here from the start of this thread. The OP was obviously watching Channel 4 and saw the report. He then posted here (without any video) and was called out on it. My semi-educated guess is that he then rewound his DVR and captured the video on his iPhone so we could all see for ourselves. My apologies for trying to defend the OP a bit.
You're absolutely correct. Now that it's 2010, I need to rethink this whole mgovideo thing. I don't even have an iPhone!
Here ya go...
If Tate was sitting for disciplinary reasons he will hang around, if he was sitting because he is the distant third string at this point a transfer would not suprise me at some point in the future. It would be unfortunate for all involved if is does happen...
Well, if I have learned one thing from hanging around these parts for a while, its to not outright reject something because it's labeled "a rumor".
I admit I know little about this, but since he has started the semester doesn't he have to wait until next semester to transfer anyway? The only benefit I could see for transfering now (or filing papers) is so that he doesn't lose a year of eligibility -- if he were to get playing time later this year. I am also not sure when the clock for sitting out a year begins -- if this year is burned anyway, he'd be better off waiting things out and seeing what happens during the season.
In the interim, I'll take Tom VH and Mr. Fordier's info over a local newshack (see earlier thread about a national sports web-site that ran a similar story until someone linked Tom VH's interview and they rescinded it)
If it turns out to be true - It is a big loss for Michigan AND Tate. To me it would speak volumes for Tate's personality and indicate that maybe he wasn't a good fit for the team despite the physical gifts and years of training. (Of course it is very easy to sit here on the outside looking in and with 20+ years more perspective on life than Tate)
As an resident of the Phoenix area - I can look in the local paper for a story of a QB with great talent that couldn't put things together in terms of leadership and attitude and ended (to date) in failure -- albeit getting paid many millions for that failure.
It's probably not the end of drop/add period yet, so, feasibly he could withdraw from U of M and enroll at another school immediately if he's granted release.
If this were to happen though, it'd have to be sooner rather than later.
So bascially this probably happens today or tomorrow, or, he'll be here the rest of the season/semester.
Disclaimer: I don't know what UM's academic calendar looks like, so, drop/add period could be over already.
Class hasn't even started yet.
seriously. until someone of importance with actual people besides fictional sources says that Tate is transferring I'll dismiss this as everyone else should as tumor mongering
Tumor mongering sounds pretty bad. There should be a public service announcement about it or something.
