Before everyone goes to bed.... Be on watch alert. Hoke is out and pointing.
Edit: Mike McCray tweeted to Shane Morris "one of the top QB's in the nation"
Who is @5thquartermatt and why did he say "more amazinger"
My thoughts exactly... grammar makes this suspect. "You can quote me"...? Who'd want to?
Um, my post isn't meant to corroborate the verity of this guy, but I think it's safe to assume he deliberately added the comparative suffix to"amazing." That was unlikely a grammar mistake. More likely: a grammar who-gives-an-eff?
He definitely meant a-maize-inger. What a numbskull!
That was really a maize zinger.
Some guy from 5th quarter sports
Is this guy the Ace Williams of 2013? It's not really going out on a limb to say Hoke will have another commit soon, given the way things have been going. Also the last two articles on this 5th quarter sports you speak of are from Feb 2nd and Dec 30... Not really on top of the recruiting world.
What the hell is 5th Qtr sports. Why is this be breaking at midnight too? I wouldnt get your hopes up.
Who the hell is this guy? I went to the site and it looked like amateur hour on there. They have a Michigan Football page and a College Football page, but only one guy posting everything. He made a national ranking that had like 7 or 8 Michigan commits in like the Top 80 or so. I'm not sure this guy has any credibility.
He's certainly no Tremendous, Ace, or TomVH.
I wonder who's next?
This is no longer funny
Diggs "humor" than another "I'm buckling up!!!" comment.
OMG, my seat belt is so tight from being buckled so long that I am now chaffing! It has become tattered and old from so much use that now it is essentially just strings that are pressed so tightly into my skin that they have now drawn blood. The pain is becoming so unbearable that I think I may have to switch to chains or 5-point seatbelts to keep myself buckled for much longer. That, or I'll pass out from lack of blood flow to my head and extremeties due to seat belt tightness, causing me to veer off the road and crash into a tree, and never letting me find out who the next high value commit is. AAAAAHHHHHHHH
alex from 11 warriors tweeted possible lean from mccray
It's not McCray. BKFinest that.
But who could it be?? I thought we were going to be in lull until the spring game at least.
I never said it was McCray so I didn't pull a BKfinest but with his twitter and his announcement date and visit date, it sounds like he is a huge lean.
I'm on a crusade of sorts to get Raback his rightfully earned title from February 2010 back.
in predicting the Dorsey's commitment, he didn't end up on the team so I cringe when I hear anyone Raback anything.
signing didn't happen. We all know that admissions is the reason he's not here.
Either way Raback was a good poster, who should still get his props.
Dorsey never qualified to attend any D-1 school, so either way he wasn't coming in 2010.
Admissions is the reason Adrian Witty isn't here, though. That one is still irritating and puzzling.
I was under the impression that "Raback-ing" something was used when you're staking your MGo-cred on something happening. Because Raback was correct when predicting the Demar Dorsey commitment. "BKfinest-ing" something is said tongue-in-cheek because he was adamant about the Jake Fisher (I think) commitment and was wrong and never heard from again.
"Raback-ing" = saying it's really going to happen.
"BKfinest-ing" = joking around about something that most likely won't happen.
Correct me if i'm wrong.
Everyone who has predicted a commitment for the mighty Blue has been right so far. I guess this guy can be next!
BTW - I predict that we get two commits next weekend. I'm not saying who or anything, but who dares deny my sage-like prophecy ? ? ?
Also BTW - to those who prepare to call me THE KNOWLEDGE jr, you best be careful - look how often his sorcery proves true !
Also also BTW - I think I will soon have another glass of wine
Also also also BTW - My wife will probably disapprove of such additional wine . . . .
Mix in a water every once in a while.
But can I just try to find a way to make alcohol look like something else ?
I should definitely keep grape juice around as camouflage maybe . . . .
Is that even how you spell "camouflage" ? ? ? ?
No, I'm not advising you on hiding the booze... I'm telling you to mix in a water because it's 1:45am on a Tuesday and your obviously in that euphoric "I love everything, man" stage of drunkenness. Nothing good comes from surpassing that stage.
Jim Lahey telling someone to ease up on the booze..and that "nothing good comes from surpassing that stage"! Julian would see right through those lies you type!
Best info I have heard for the night !
There's a rivals article ($) that says Mccray is set to announce. That's my guess
But has he even visited?
The article says he is set to announce on the 8th of March
Should we be buckling up?
being buckled up for 9 days will cause chafing and general discomfort.
Okay, so as long as this specific picture is used every time, I feel like people can use the "Buckle Up" joke as much as they want...
of StevenRKass' wife!! (via Mr. Kass himself)
Unbuckle, for Heaven's Sake.
Kozan's vision quest took a sudden U turn. Looks like we're back in it again!
I hate how easy it is to increase your page hits by pulling this shit.
If we get a commitment soon, this guy gets credibility and people will start paying attention to him (even if he didn't have any idea what was going on beyond what we all knew).
If we don't get a commitment, then everyone forgets his name, which no one knew in the first place.
It's a low risk, high reward way for blogs to get attention, and this really doesn't deserve a thread like it would if it came from Ace, Tom, Sam Webb, etc.
Chill. It doesn't matter. Attention whores get screwed eventually.
You will notice, btw, that the OP has received no positive feedback. Or negative, signifying that readers are sitting on the fence, and not exhibiting immediate irrational exuberance.
My point isn't that this guy is an attention whore - or that people here can't figure out how to sort credible information from junk. I'm making a more general point that there's a structural incentive problem now that anyone gets to be a reporter/analyst.
Blogs are great in a lot of ways. There are downsides, though, to moving away from getting news from journalists whose editors work to protect their employers' reputations. If you don't have an established reputation, it's rational to blindly take some shots. Hell, I think Brian is a very responsible voice, but I was first drawn to MGoBlog by a report suggesting that Kirk Ferentz was about to be hired by Michigan.
