From reliable sources coach Bobby Williams of Alabama visited Warren DeLaSalle. Not sure who he was there to see or speak to, but one can deduce it might have something to do with some left handed quarterback you may have heard of. I seriously doubt anything will come from it, but still interesting that Alabama is sending coaches.
Coach Bobby WIlliams Visits Warren DeLaSalle Today
If there has ever been a recruit that I am not afraid of losing it is Shane Morris.
Nothing is certain in the recruiting game, with one exception: Shane Morris is going to attend Michigan.
Three things in life are guarenteed:
(3) Shane Morris attending the University of Michigan
Bobby Williams leaves considering whether he wants to join Michigan's coaching staff.
In order of probablility:
1)Seek a position on the DeLaSalle coaching staff
2)Hoping Morris puts in a good word for Willaims to the Michigan coaching staff
3)test Shane's interest in going to Alabama.
well played, sir.
Is Bobby stupid or something?
SEC academic standards.
my momma said that
that life is like a box of Bama recruiting tactics.....you never know what you gonna get!!
Is there any other higher profile players there he might be looking at?
Didn't they have some WRs transfer from another school? Not sure if they are high profile or not though.
John Wangler's sons, but I don't think they're Alabama-caliber.
This is what happens when you get early, elite recruits: everyone else still wants them. If I remember correctly from twitter, USC has been in to see the Cass Tech duo, and Florida has been up to see Dawson as well. USC continues to pursue Tuley-Tillman, and Kugler has been receiving calls but refusing to speak to other schools. Teams still want our shiny new toys when it's 10 months away from signing day.
I do find it interesting though, because if you're dumb enough to say, "Well Lewis only had offers from Michigan and Toledo" or something like that, that would be a perfectly relevant statement next December, but not now. An elite college football program like USC wants Lewis, they just didn't have enough time to even get on him because our coaching staff is working ahead of the curve.
Does DeLaSalle have any other BCS-calibur athletes?
Maybe this is Saban trying to get in Hoke's head.
perhaps Hoke is in Saban's head. He can't deal with that fact that Hoke is out recruiting him. How bout that, eh?
I don't know if this article was posted on the board or not, but WN did an interview with Shane at the 7v7 event in Pittsburgh and he said this ($, link):
Morris said he's received more scholarship offers but he's not telling anyone which schools so as not to create any sort of buzz that he could be rethinking his commitment.
“Thanks for the interest,” Morris said when asked what he tells recruiters that come calling. “I'm committed to Michigan 100 percent. If anything drastic happens I'll let you know.”
In case there was any confusion, Shane's going nowhere other than Michigan.
If anything drastic happens I'll let you know.
SO HE'S CONSIDERING RETHINKING HIS COMMITMENT?! PANIC EVERYBODY PANIC!!!
Something DRASTIC has happened!!!
Edit: Well, don't I look like an ass.
just had to say your username is dead on. Markovits is the man.
At one point a while back, he did admit, via twitter, to TomVH that he had an Alabama offer. He also reaffirmed, via Twitter, that he wouldn't de-commit from M.
Considering Shane has recruited everyone to go to Michigan, I doubt we have to worry about him leaving.
"@S_Morris12: #WordsYouWillNeverHearMeSay I'm de-committing from Michigan."
I wonder of he reads MGoBlog?
If any recruit does, I would have to believe Shane "I have over 10k twitter followers" Morris does. The boy is all over the social medias. He probably adds millions to the total worth of twitter by himself.
So I can directly quote Shane as saying "...I'm de-committing from Michigan."?
Where do I apply to become a member of the MSM?
Only if you work for the Free Press.
And if that's the case, it's probably your headline.
Just when I think I can't get any more excited about this kid he says something like that.
Doesn't recruit quarterbacks. I swear it seems that way at times. He get's 5 stars for every positon. 1st round draft picks at almost every position but the Elite quarterback seems to evade him for some reason.
Defense wins championships!
Baltimore vs san fran super bowl match?
Bama fans must not be the sharpest tools in the shed then. I'll spell it out in language they might understand, just in case there are any Bama fans a-peekin' in the winder. There's this new-fangled thingy in football called the forward pass. I know it don't seem natural to see the pigskin flung all about, but most QB's, 'specially the gooduns, are happier than a dog with two peters when they heave the ball. Now Bama QB's throw the ball pertnear as often as a yellow dog votes Republican, so ain't no good QB goin' ter be a-comin' t' Bama 'till they get ta chuck the ball down the field.
Williams this is your one warning to step away from this particular Michigan man. You've been warned.
In all seriousness though, I don't understand why this coach would waste his time coming up here unless they are going after someone else. Maybe he is just a fan of the southeastern Michigan this time of year, but if it is to talk to Shane he probably could've had a phone conversation with him to sure up his commitment to Michigan.
I was very disappointed in the Eastbound and Down series finale.
Haven't seen any of the 3rd season yet. I have to wait for them to come out on DVD, but i heard that the start of the 3rd season was pretty good. I never did hear anything about it after the first few episodes. After the 2nd season I am hoping that the final season could redeem the last season, but from what you are saying it sounds like I'm just getting my hopes up.
The first season was never going to be duplicated. Season three was better than two, IMO, but still a big step down from the first season.
FWIW I thought the finale was better than disappointing, but wasn't a classic finale either.
It was a 3 season series, so I don't think you can really expect too much from it as far as content. The thing I like about the show the most is the funny one liners and stupid situations and ridiculous things Kenny does throughout the entire show. Not one of the greatest shows, but it will give you some laughs. I'm interested to see how they are going to end it. I have already heard some things about the 3rd season, but have yet to watch it at all so as long as there is enough one liners to keep me laughing I will get my $30 worth from the DVD's.
And just 3 minutes ago Shane tweets "#WordsYouWillNeverHearMeSay I'm decommitting from Michigan".
I can see the freep headline:
Shane Morris tweets "... I'm decommitting from Michigan"
He may be there giving one of his famed motivational speeches on how to overcome losing as a head coach.
That he was there to see Shane Morris. This is just Saban doing his due dilligence. This is standard practice in the SEC, where there are no "committed" players. Saban thinks Shane Morris is the best QB in the country, through sources I can tell you that is true.
I'm loving the mental picture of Alabama coaches talking to a kid decked out in Michigan gear, as I'm sure Shane is.
throws a football at him and knocks his cafeteria lunch to the floor and all the cool kids laugh at him and he gets coleslaw and ketchup all over himself.
It would be even better if all the non-cool kids laughed too. Talk about demoralizing!
there's a COLD chili day??
that's just disgusting.
are tireless and relentless----so just as they exert max efforts to sign other recruits they will exert the same effort even in a "lost" cause
Bobby Williams tried to commit to Michigan, but Shane had to tell him that he wasn't being offered....
Saban is just attempting the mother of all flips.
Won't happen, but I applaud his relentlessness. He's probably doing the same with 10 other 5* players and if he gets just one, it was worth the effort.
Taco just tweeted that it is crazy that he is now hearing from Alabama and Cal and other far away schools. Get ready for a steady stream of this for the next 10 months.
Bama may be trying to send some sort of message to the Michigan coaches. Why waste the time and money on coming up to see a player they have no chance of flipping? It seems pretty clear there are no other players at De La Salle that would warrant an Alabama offer. Maybe our coaches have been going after an Alabama commit??? Would love to hear RollTide's take on this
EDIT: Sorry, just saw RollTide's post above that I missed.
they're scouting trips. All the elite teams know they will be facing Michigan in a post season game in a few years, so they're getting a jump start on scouting Michigan's future stars. You really can't blame them for planning ahead.
Oh yeah good point....because there's a football game going on at De La Salle today... On a Wednesday afternoon.... in the middle of April....
It's the Catholic League. We play by our own set of rules
I can just see Sugar Shane telling Bobby to go pound sand and outwardly scoffing at the mere suggestion that he would ever even entertain for a second the possibility of going Crimson.
And then as those knuckleheads continue to recruit the rest of our prized class, Shane's example will only foster greater camaraderie and brotherhood as they collectively disdain and mock the foolishness of Nick.
Did Shane ask Bobby if he has lost his team?
Just the thought of Bobby Williams wandering around the country looking for his lost team cracks me up.
Especially with the recent news of John L. taking the Arkansas job, I was kind of wondering what Williams was up to recently too.
Are we even sure it the special teams coach from Alabama and not the head coach of Arkansas? Both are Bobby Williams. Both are meh!
Is there even a Bobby Williams at Arkansas?
Remember that hilarious angry pout that Booby Williams would get on his face whenever his team got a penalty? That's what he's going to look like at the end of the day today when he goes home empty handed.
by signing day in 2013, but it won't be Morris. It's not even worth pondering. He's as much of a UM lock as any kid in the class.
And I have to question Saban's judgement in sending a clown like Williams in the first place.
Whoever wins the game in Dallas will probably get him. Let's hope Michigan wins.
Is there a dumbfuck moderation?
Literally the dumbest post in MGoBlog history.
"Alabama came into school today to see me and I told my coach I don't want to talk to other schools..So my coach told him leave a card..Hahaa"
Hilarious. That's all I have to say
Nick probably spends the better part of $1000-$1500 for flight, hotel, rental car, meals and Shane totally blows him off, doesn't even take the time to see him.
We're talkin' Alabama, the defending National Champions.
ARE YOU FRIGGIN' KIDDING ME!!!
That demonstrates passion right up there with Coach Hoke never wearing red all those years.
What an example of loyalty for our other young Michigan Men to follow. These guys truly bleed BLUE. They'll be joking about that in the locker room and on the practice field for the next 5 years; heck, even after Shane goes pro.
Gotta love it.
