If I'm not mistaken, he is announcing today.
http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/cullen-christian-announcement not too far back 2nd page on recent threads
He announces at 6:30 tonight.
General speculation is that it's still M for him.
Alex Smith to UNC it seems
on the Alex Smith sweepstakes? Seems like you'd have a chance...Big name school, Ohio kid, TE friendly offense...
no, I was a bit surprised but they seemed only interested on 1 TE this year, which is probably good considering we still have a chance to fill out this class strongly, despite a coaching change
But how do you have any idea how a coaching change is going to impact your recruiting at this point?
Same way you can ever have an idea of how your recruiting is going at any time in the season, just adding a few more variables to juggle
I keep seeing these threads pop up thinking the announcement has been made... Stop it.
Yes, he announced to all of us and we are going to try to keep it from you as long as possible. We also disabled all the search functions on the internetz so you will never find out who he picked or if he has picked yet.
I'm not sure if this has been talked about a bunch previously. But doesn't a 4.68 40 seem a tad slow for a corner?
Not for a 17 year old kid in high school.
It actually seems like a real 40 time, unlike these fake fake fake 4.3-4.4 40s that are being reported. considering his ranking on every major site, its apparent that his speed is at least comparable to other major recruits.
theres another thread about Furman's 4.3 forty, though I hear he actually hits in the 4.19 electronically timed. So if we miss out on Cullen, Furman looks good.
I call BS on that one. Speculated 40 times are getting more and more outrageous. The fastest cornerback 40 time at the combine this year was a 4.46! And oh yeah, Furman is being recruited as a linebacker. The fastest time for a linebacker was Aaron Curry at 4.56. The fastest period was 4.30 and Mike Vick "only" ran a 4.25 at the combine. There is no way that Furman runs a 4.19.
Guess I should recalibrate a bit. Just a bit on edge over this signing.
if he pours some of that liquid Comcast shit in his shoe.
Only because we're so used to seeing bullshit 40 times.
Also, there are many more important things than being able to run fast in a straight line for 40 yards, without pads on.
From what it seems he is choosing between Mich and WV right? What if he chose WV? How devastating of a loss would that be to us or RR? I am a huge RR supporter and this is not "one of those" posts. That would be a huge loss for us though, in my opinion, as we have been his #1 all season and he is the highest touted corner that we are after. Talk amongst yourselves....
Do the right thing.
I have only 1 word regarding his 40 time.
Here's something related that's interesting:
40 speed is more important for safeties, as they are more often in zone drops and have to cover more ground. Corners can often mask a lack of speed with good technique, safeties cannot.
If we're going to play corners with less speed, however, we need to have them play press (regardless of whether it's man or zone) on the WRs in order to re-route WRs and slow them down, greatly reducing any speed advantage the WRs might have.
Cullen told me where he's going. I can't post it here but I will email what he said to me to anyone that posts their email address.
I am a top official in the Nigerian government, interested in importation of goods into my country with funds that are currently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this business, I solicit your assistance to enable me to transfer into your account the said trapped funds. I have been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues to look for an overseas partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of $25,456,253.00. Please post your email address if you are interested in further information.
I got my first one of those a few months ago and I was like WTF?
Side story I actually met a guy while interviewing for a job that had a friend that did those "hey we'll deposit a bunch of money into your account you just have to transfer it to this account and keep the difference". Apparently the FBI or CIA found him and said "wtf is wrong with you but hey it's okay keep the money".
Sorry, I'd rather have Cullen Christian.
Did you get the email?
He does call himself the devil
Sam Webb said this morning on the recruiting round-up that "if my gut feeling (about Cullen Christian) is correct (that he's going to Michigan) then we will have a special guest on tomorrow's recruiting round-up." Sounds like plans may have already been made. And if you're not familiar, when Webb says he has a "gut feeling" it usually means he knows something but has been sworn to secrecy.
How he can be sworn to secrecy and then say "i have a strong gut feeling" which = "hey everybody he's going to Michigan". Wouldn't recruits stop telling him because they know he's going to tell everyone and their mother?
I am very excited about christian's announcement tonight. IMO, he's the best corner we have been in on since donovan warren. marlin jackson, leon hall, donovan warren,...keep it going!
In 2010, Cullen Christian is the #3 ranked CB according to Rivals.
But, in 2009, Justin Turner was the #3 ranked CB according to Scout.
sorry, sorry, lol...i just forgot about him because everyone was saying he was going to be a safety during the recruiting process.
Who really cares about the rankings, but Christian is #6 on Rivals, BTW.
He is #3 on Scout he must have had them mixed me thinks.
Does anyone know if there will be a live feed available? I mean this isnt some spur of the moment thing hes had this planned for months
