The smiley face makes me think he is just messing around to see what kind of reaction he can get out of the die-hards. I'll go have lunch and check back tonight.
Commitment Watch: According to Dymonte Thomas [Edit: No commitment from Green]
Or he could just be happy.
This is how I display my happiness
I'll never understand Olympic opening ceremonies.......or closing ceremonies........or cirque de soliel.....but as long as I understand that my woman likes them, I'm all set, lol.
Each Olympics they're getting bigger and weirder. No wonder every time they showed the Queen, she looked like "what the hell is this rubbish?"
Pretty sure that's just how the Queen always looks.
That's the attitude that leads to a long happy marriage. (And the ability to watch football on Saturdays without being bothered)
or maybe you are reading too much into it and he is happy.
I vote we all say what we are going to do ("I'll go have lunch", for example) immediately after we get off of the site. Imagine how fun it'd be if for every comment, you got to see what some random person on the internet is going to go do with their time next, even if it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic, like lunch, sweet.
I'm going to jerk off.
You killed that.
He seemed like he really wanted to know.
I don't know if I should moderate that funny or informative. Fortunately, I'm buckled but on the safe side, going with funny.
I was counting on someone saying that, haha.
Came back and he didn't commit. No kidding?
Bosch just tweeted something about getting Green to commit today. Wow!
Commence Mgoblog server meltdown! (the good one)
Full blown Commit Watch...
Can we ban posting copies of Sarah Hughes tweets? She might be the least credible person in terms of knowledge on these things.
Who needs this many aliases? Is she kiting checks?
Credible? Right, no guy would EVER lie to impress a chick? (I believe I’ve told several while in my 20’s that I was in MLB draft then got hurt. /s)
It doesn’t hit you that many times the recruits are just saying what she wants to hear? Sorry, she doesn’t seem credible to me in the least. They will announce themselves or another site first if it is official.
Even though she can be questionable, I think texts directly from players and/or recruits are credible no matter who it is (unless they're straight up lying I guess)
She has a great repoire with the recruits themselves. Most of her information comes from them. As we have seen with David Dawson, that might not lead to a 1.000 batting average, but its not like her sources are suspect.
And Tom Beaver shouldn't rely throw stones. He used to report fact after fact from a poster known as Maizeman. Long story short, Scout cut him for making up information, yet Tom made serious $ from reporting this posters reports as facts.
You fixed rapport but not really/rely?
..and pardon my obvious bias, but NO ONE should base their opinion of a person on what Tom Beaver says of them. Tom Beaver would accuse my son of stealing info if he got a high five from a recruit and tweeted about it.
Did he accuse you of stealing info or was that "mspeedkills"
I think that must be you.
hurry up, I gotta pee!!
Without that you could get stuck refreshing to a cached page.
Go Green! (errrrrrr)
I think we should just call him DG or Derrick
DG is our quarterback for 2013.
Devin Gardner is our WR for 2012
When he starts leveling linebackers and shattering records we can call him DGDestroys. That one's not taken already, is it??
I yield my name to thee. I've always wanted to be a 'Balthazar'
Come on this is just what I have been looking forward to PLEASE LET IT HAPPEN!!!
...We may need her.
We never went to sleep last night! ;)
K, we're ready
Bully! That's a certified fully!
Uh, down there...?
Copious is the first word that came to mind.
I'm here for the POSbang? Oh wait, wrong thread.
I've been told by multiple commitments that there's a better chance of him committing today than not committing. FWIW
This would be prime news heading back into work after a week of vacation.
DG = Demi-God?
I read somewhere that Derrick Green at one point weighed 270 lbs. Anyone know more about his background? Guess we'll find out more about him in his impending Hello post.
270 seems a little bit crazy for a guy who's only 6'0 215-220 now.
..If he commits and an article happens to get published on maize n brew about said commitment, hypothetical article would include links to other article that talks about how he was 270 coming into his freshman year, didn't want to play on the line, so he slimmed down, worked harder than any incoming HS freshman I've ever met, and got himself to a cut 230
I read somewhere that Derrick Green at one point weighed 270 lbs. Anyone know more about his background? Guess we'll find out more about him in his impending Hello post.
I believe he was an OL at one point, but then lost the weight and switched to RB because he didn't want to get recruited as a lineman for either offense or defense. That's what I remember reading anyway.
Green was a 5'8" 270 pound offensive lineman, until he got serious and cut all that weight and started training with an actually trainer. He cut a lot of weight, got a lot stronger, and a lot faster.
Mo Hurst Jr is a 6'2" 275-290 lb DT/RB, if you want to see what it looks like...
That MAN is in high school... Wow
How do we know this type of stuff didn't happen when he was at Auburn? If he leaves here without committing then I'm just going to assume it will never happen. Twitter is a dangerous thing.
Farrell from Rivals already indicated that this is different from previous visits.
I've seen his tweets too, I just want to avoid getting excited. We thought Treadwell was on the verge of committing, but now he is just letting it play out and taking more visits. So who knows, kids these days loooove attention, and he knows he is the belle of the ball right now.
But, dude, Mike Farrell hates Michigan and would never give us any positive information. When Shane Morris committed to Michigan, Farrell tweeted "Haha Shane Morris sucks. Be ready for four years of shitty quarterback play, Wolverine fans #smh."
Hint: "True story." means everything, or at lest most of what, he just said was false.
Magnus was obviously joking, but if we can't use "true story" to distinguish between what's really a true story and what isn't, what do we have left?
Magnus, you're ruining life for everyone.
Magnus is a closet sparty. True story.
I'm the reason Kate Upton is a Michigan fan....true story.
Where there's smoke there's usually fire. And this seems like a lot of smoke. A strange Green hue to it as well
mean that there will be a new Pope?
I heard Ohio didn't want him. In that case, I don't want him either. I only want to get recruits that Ohio wants.
Really excited about this commit. I definitely think there are some things that Green can work on (balance, hands/receiving), but the kid is pretty much everything that Hoke wants in a power back. Hoke is going to be extremely happy with Green, Smith, and Shallman. That is MANBALL right there.
You're talking like Green has already committed......
Definitely jumped the gun.
I wouldn't be surprised if he committed some time soon though.
Get the Kate upton .gifs ready.
Today might be awesome
Until I see a Hello: post, I'm not getting my hopes up. When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
1000 adult males sitting around a computer/smart phone on a Sunday afternoon, waiting to find out if a 17 year old kid wants to play for their team.
Many are drinking and looking at pictures of said 17 year old in adoration.
I can't speak for the rest of the group, but all my adoration is focused on Kate in this thread. Verlander = God.
Could you please tell my fiance that you called me an adult?
Out of 1000.
Should never have moved to Nilbog. Troll 2 reference +1 (as long as you knew what that was from)
[email protected]: Another "idk yet" from Derrick Green when asked if he will commit to #Michigan before he leaves. That often means yes but we'll see.”
He'd be a nice pick up, but I'll believe it when I see it. I think these kids like to mess with people on twitter.
I know the BBQ started at noon, but when is the official end time (if there is one)?
It doesn't end until you've finished your brisket and pecan pie
Don't forget the sausage, potato salad, beans, cole slaw, cream corn, and cobbler. Yes, I ate at Rudy's this week.
Man do I miss Rudy's... they just don't have good barbeque like that here in Georgia. At least we got a Chuy's in Atlanta now.
Ate at Chuy's on Friday. Surprised to hear there is one in Atlanta. There is some good food in Georgia even if there is no BBQ like Texas.
Who knows... maybe "Sarah Hughes" is actually RDT. Or vice-versa.
Who knows. I think it has to be a bit unnerving to a recruit to be contacted by all these different people claiming to be recruiting analysts. I trust Ace (ours, not chatsports), Tremendous and TomVH, but I just don't see the need for any more than a few people doing the same thing.
At this point, whether he commits or not, MGoBlog is going to explode
If Green goes elsewhere, we'll get to enjoy about 80 different threads of "why can't Hoke close the deal?"
Farrell is lying in the weeds, pretending to "report" relevant breaking info when I believe he's just waiting for the schadenfreude.
He is supposed to meet with Hoke one more time before he leaves. Does anyone know if that meeting has happened yet?
There has been absolutely nothing from twitter in the last 45 minutes. Maybe they are all just partying their asses off because he committed.
...and if this is Green, I don't mind ending my weekend buckled in.
That didn't turn out to well for Brian Fantana. Hopefully it works out for Hoke and co.
Do we really still need to be making Anchorman references?
It won the Academy Award for the Greatest Movie Ever Made.
Sorry. Telladega Nights Reference.
NEVER apologize for making a telladega nights reference.
Shake and bake.
YA GUYS THINK BEFORE POSTING WE LANDED ON THE MOON!!! CUZ ITS OLD
landing on the moon was awesome. Anchorman is a terrible movie.
You'v'e got a dirty whore mouth.
Dorthy Mantooth is a Saint!!!!
In all seriousness, Anchorman is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen...
Why don't you go back to your home on whore island?
FWIW, our old friend checked in with him about 7 minutes ago, and he said "idk" again as to whether he was going to pull the trigger.
If our old friend is Farrell, a) I don't think he's a friend and b) why doesn't he just leave the kid alone.
Our old friend isn't Farrell.
It's not Farrell. Most people on this site know who our old friend is BTW but thanks for negging
In the context it was used I could see how it could be confusing. Because it was posted above that Mike Farrel asked Green and got the same answer. I thought you were talking about Farrell as well and was saying "old friend" sarcastically.
Edit: Double post
Last I seen was over 40 minutes ago(about 30 from the time you posted).
What is the point of asking him that? Did he expect Green to just be like "You bet your sweet ass I'm going to commit! Thanks for asking, Mike!" Hopefully that means yes, but he has been playing this recruiting game pretty well, so it might just be something to get us all hyped up for no reason. It's hard not to get your hopes high on this happening though.
Edit: Whoops, thought it was Farrell. Tom gets a pass because I like him.
I thought more people were fans of Its Always Sunny in Phladelphia on here...apparently not.
Most of us are big fans. I'm an espeically big fan, which is why that exact gif was posted earlier in the thread. That's why you were getting negged, but don't sweat it...
FARRELL, no = old friend........Wow, I give up.
You have to switch it to plaintext, Rmilkman
Edit: you beat me to it.
So hypothetically, if he commits, who do you guys think gets redshirted between Shallman, Smith, and Green? All three backs are widely regarded as bruising tackle-busters rather than burners. I know people are probably going to assume that Shallman is destined for FB, but he's claimed that he is strictly being recruited at the RB position, which makes this class absolutely loaded with talent in the backfield. Which potential option are you guys most excited about?
your negative point total is astonishing
Check back in a decade and I'll probably have caught up to you :)
may be a bruiser, but if he actually has 4.4 speed as reported, he's also a burner.
Whichever option is at least 9 on the Mohs scale.
Buckled up and ready for the pos bang...oh yes.
I have heard from a very reliable source that he may or may not commit today.
Oh yeah? Did Farrell tell you that? Yeah well, I'll believe it when I see it.
He's already referring to OSU as "Ohio." Love it.
Where did you see this?
It's in the part where he and LTT are talking smack to some idiot Ohio fan.
If someone could name every in this picture.
Also creeped out.
(DISCLAIMER: these kids are only 3-4 years younger than myself, so the creepiness factor isn't completely toned up by knowing faces.)
I don;t know all, just some that stick out.
Back Row: Khalid, Dymonte, Douglass?, Green?, Lewis, #8 looks like Dukes, Bosch, Ferns #23, LTT, Fox.
Front Row: Dawson, MM, Wyatt, Channing?, Taco in front, no clue who 56 is, BUTT.
I don't recognize all of them and put question marks on the ones I wasn't positive about.
Also, did Devon Allen make it in?
#23 is Ben Gedeon
It looks to be all of the 2013 commits at the BBQ plus green, don't know if thats a clue or not!
Back Row: #32 Khalid Hill, #14 Dymonte Thomas, #6 Ross Douglas, #27 Derrick Green, #2 Jourdan Lewis, Channing Stribling, #5 ???, #8 Jaron Dukes, Kyle Bosch, #23 Ben Gedeon, LTT, Chris Fox.
Front Row: #55 David Dawson, #9 Mike McCray, #17 Wyatt Shallman, #33 Taco Charlton, #4 Deveon Smith, #56 Scott Sypniewski, #24 Jake Butt.
Corrected/added names in bold. Can anyone identify player in near center of back row in jersey #5?
I'm pretty sure #23 is Ben Gedeon
That's a good lookin class. Gedeon not Ferns though.
Dymonte looks so friggin proud to be wearing that jersey.
Dymonte Thomas looks bigger than reported. That's good.
new away jerseys? Looks like we got rid of the yellow side from the non-techfit jerseys but kept the piping.
Notice the new Big 10 logos on all the uniforms.
I see what you did there. Also, awesome.
Sam Webb just posted a group photo of all the commits in the locker room. Don't think I see Green in there.
Maybe he's talking to Coach Hoke now?
Or could he be that half a face in the back behind #5?
Green is behind McCray with the hat on. It's a done deal!
If you clicked on the enlarged version you can even see what looks like 27 on the jersey, his high school number.
If that's him good catch. I was looking for his hair color haha.
Oh NO! And Shane is missing too!
Who is #5 in the center of the photo?
I think Adidas has finally gotten it right. with the latest round of jerseys that the recruits are wearing. Look normal, fit normal.
Oh yeah and that whole top recruiting class wearing a bunch of Michigan jerseys thing. That's pretty cool too.
Rivals likes to rank on NFL potential. And this kid basically already has an NFL body. He may not be the best RB in the country right now, but he very well could be in a couple years.
His offer list on rivals is just absurd. All teams in AQ conferences.
Ty Isaac is 6'-3" and not quite labeled an elusive Reggie Bush type back.
Crap, that's not what I wanted to hear. Could someone please notify the coaches of the following schools that aaamichfan doesn't know what the hype is about?:
Ohio State (you know, kind of)
No MSU offer? What did we get ourselves into by offering this kid? jj
I watched a few videos myself and also noticed there was nothing flashy or overly exciting about him. However, I also noticed there was not really a single play where he didn't gain at least about 3-5 extra yards after first contact. Seeing that was really all I needed to get excited about this kid. I hope he does eventually go blue.
Wouldn't be shocked to see him drop today either.
She's a hack
Green looks like a little guy next those monsters. Of course we all know he's not.
American flag M shirt. Anyone know where that's from?
New line of sportswear
J. Lehmans old neck tie
Have to love LTT and his open feelings about Ohio.
Now if I could only see him light fire to something with Ohio State written on it...
No, no,no, no, no. Uh, nice picture.
a copy of a TomVH tweet that said, "That's it. He's blue."
Either the mods deleted something very fast, or that Higgs-Boson shit is starting to mess with the space time continuum.
I misunderstood a tweet, posted it up with the best of intentions, and tried to edit after I realized my mistake but before damage was done.
My sincere apologies.
help for that "premature" thing. /s
Caeser misread a tweet from TomVH that said something like "UM Commits with Derrick Green" and included one of the pictures posted above.
That might have been premature reply to somebody haha
Feels like the calm before the storm...
I have lost count on how many times I have hit F5 today!
GO BLUE KID!
It's days like today I realize how obsessed I am.
Days like today I realize I'm glad I'm single....and also realize why I'm single as well.
According to Sam Webb...
From @BrOoKyLn_boii27: "I didn't commit"
1 second late
no commit today
Well that was fun.
From Sam Webb about DG "I didn't commit"
I definitely understand with Hokes' no visit policy. Im willing to bet thats the main reason he didnt commit...
Sam Webb @SamWebb77 10m
We'll chat with him further to see if there's a "yet" attached to that. Look out for BBQ updates on gobluewolverine
View details ·
It'll be interesting to read follow up interviews. I could see this speeding up his timeline. Curious to see if he names us as his leader.
I would have done nothing anyways, so I still did something today.
I'm on a bus from New York to DC. At least this made me feel productive!
To think I could have gone outside to see the sun today
It will be there tomorrow. I hope. Either way, when that thing burns up, we're all gonna be dead.
Well let's just look at it this way, who's to say he doesn't wake up tomorrow and think "my god I need to go there!" From the looks of the photos who wouldn't think that visit went great.
Is that a picture of Gwildor from the 80's movie, "He-Man"? I never expected him to be a tranny...
Well, that was a big nothing.
Iowa running back hating God strikes again?
Everybody can stop holding their breath and do something productive.
Its really accurate too!
...and you spent time on this here blog, reading through comments regarding a commitment and commenting yourself.
Per @SWiltfong247, Green's visit isn't over. He's having dinner with Coach Hoke tonight."
Great News! Hoke to close the deal.
Somone go stake out Chophouse! Nothing washes down BBQ for lunch with an aged bone-in ribeye!
BTW, I have always found it a little odd that Chophouse, Ann Arbor has a sister restaurant in Annapolis, MD. Loved taking the wife there for her bday and getting her entree for free hahah.
a set of steak knives.
none of us should be surprised. he's a 17 year old kid and the top rb recruit in the country. i'm sure he's loving the attention.
regardless, we should all be pretty damn happy about how this weekend went. he seemed to love his visit, and a couple weeks to a month ago, were there any of us out there who thought we had any remotely reasonable chance to land this kid? even if he doesn't commit today or tomorrow, our stock with him went up considerably.
Good thing I was making sweet love while following this or I might have felt like I wasted a Sunday.
One hand is making love, while the other is pressing F5 all day. Sounds productive to me!
Whenever she dances I see "Hello" posts.
cause with effect.
Top247 RB Derrick Green's visit to Michigan is over. Comment from his mother. michigan.247sports.com/Board/59424/Bi… via @247Sports
Makes me feel foolish that I thought he was actually going to commit. Looks like he played everyone. Fool me once...
@rickdun His quote earlier was he hasn't. Do I think he will be Blue? My gut says he will. Time will tell though."
This was in response to someone who thought Green committed.
and good...and rape
But if you do know the context, it's merely terrifying.
Was certainly a great day for DG...I feel damn good either way, if he comes great...if not I like Devian (sp?) Smith.....
I should have looked it up...
"Despite the Wolverines improving their standing in his eyes, Green is not close to bringing his recruitment to an end.
“I don’t know when I’m going to make a decision right now,” he stated. “I plan on narrowing my list down before my season starts, but right now I don’t know when I’m going to make my decision."
So much for twitter.
Kindof sounds like what you say to a girl you're not interested in dating.
I anticipated more 2014 offers going out at the BBQ. Any idea if Devers was the only new offer today. I thought there were quite a few talented kids coming without offers.
Maybe Auburn upped their offer Sunday afternoon?
/s (sorta, nothing to do with green's character, more of a statement on auburn's)
Not enough points to start a thread, but a 'not yet published' 247 story just came up in my twitter feed saying Green is our 24th Team134 member
saw that, too. I'd like to see some sort of confirmation beyond the twitter feed before starting a thread, though...
edit: and now it's gone from the twitter feed, too. probably a false alarm.
