alternate headline: man does job
And then he re-commits to Michigan while in town in front of the coaches and the other visiting juniors.
***Please please please let this be the case***
...which sets off the chain of events in which every 5 star recruit verbally commits to M within 24 hours, and Ace's new labtop melts down from writing all those "Hello" posts.
Where Jerusalem is Michigan's football program, and the zombies are 5 star recruits.
Or everyone flips out and says Hoke can't hold onto recruits when one of them decommits.
Like you guys have been around here a couple weeks.
Dang. Rivals must be handing out a lot more 5 stars than usual this year.
this movie KILLED the book. The only similarity was that they both included zombies.
Never read the book myself. I was extremely let down by the movie even without any reference other than other zombie movies/shows.
I thought that movie was great
I wouldn't say great. Definitely watchable, and pretty entertaining. I would say a solid good.
That being said, never read the book.
I agree. All I heard was how good that movie was, and I walked away extremely disappointed.
I really liked each one as its own thing
When I first heard they were making a movie, I was hoping that they'd make it like a fictional documentary or something similar to retain the "oral history" element. Never bothered to see the movie, but I did hear that it was at least OK.
Heh, I said the same thing to my wife. I enjoyed the movie but the only thing the two had in common was zombies.
My disappointment was that the movie skipped the battle of Claremont.
Come on back home, Mr. Harris.
Yall come back now, ya hear?
Gives legs to the idea that he was just wanting to take a step back and re-assess. A chance to fall in love all over again.
Perhaps all the other RB offers are influencing his decision with such a small recruiting class.
Get on the bus!
We need playmakers.
maybe the maize rage can get a damien harris chant going at the game.
That to be a certainty.
I bet he was secretly rooting for Michigan last night when he was on his visit at osu.
looked like he was wearing blue.
The windbreaker dress-shirt combo. Timeless.
the red security rope between Damien & Urbz. Keep your hands to yourself Urbz!
Administration saw Urban's quote about players' butts.
Also heard he may have been going a little over the line with the new use of snap-chat for recruiting purposes... Yikes
i would love to mock his dress ... from the pleated and cuffed 1991 pants to the windbreaker. but glass houses - black pants with blue shirt and wrapped shades leaves me little room
Think that's his letter jacket.
Regardless: HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH URBAN
1982 called. They want their Members Only jacket back.
And of course, Blue know Blue.
Nothing like losing to your hated rival to create a bit of a downer experience for the potential recruit, especially when he is still leaning towards your rival.
a trolling post for a planned visit to Miami. Glad it's for the good guys!
David Harris was good, give us moar.
This is great news. Just goes to show what a great recruiter Nuss is as most people assumed Mr. Harris would find greener pastures with Mr. Borges gone. Not saying he will re-commit by any means. But, getting him back on campus is a step in that direction.
I've kinda felt like this wasn't your typical decommitment. I get the feeling we'll get him back in the end. Now Campbell, on the other hand....
I won't get excited until the LOI is off the fax machine, but this is definitely good news.
This is where you belong!
Urbz won't be around in three years
He continues to get his ass gapped by mork d
Heard Urbz isn't letting him slip this time!!!!
Just curious, does anyone think it makes a difference in these cross-sport recruiting trips if the team recruiting wins or not?
I would think it could make a difference in that if the home team wins a big game, the crowd excitement would probably rub off (thinking McGary's trips to football games). I could see recruits getting swept up in the excitement of simply being at a big event. But I doubt there's much of an impact like, "gee, their basketball team really screwed that one up...not sure if I want to play running back here."
At least it does in my NCAA video game.
That doesn't happen if we get hammered by Ohio in our building.
Watching the fans streaming out of the building with time still on the clock can't help his perception of the OSU fanbase.
I think the majority of recruits get a good idea for the atmosphere win/loss or otherwise...
Not only do we need him becuase hes a great running back, but we need him to establish that we are a top recruit destination. If we can keep brininging in guys like Peppers, Green ect. it will only help bring in more. Great recruiting breeds great recruiting.
Great recruiting breeds winning.
At the very least it shows that we have some chance of getting him back.
Please tell me that 1 minute after that photo was taken, Urban had the gall to turn to the kid and force him to change his shirt:
This definitely feels different than a de-commit. More of a putting folks on notice that he's still shoping around, but hasn't eliminated Michigan. Or (hopefully) still is looking hard at them but wants to look around.
Actually, if you think about it, it's a far more honorable way to do it than to sneak around and suddenly de-commit & then commit quickly to another school.
"Taking a break" from a relationship is never a GREAT sign, but it's far better than an outright break-up or the person being cheated on.
Good sign. Fingers crossed.
Crystal ball reads we are even with Ohio for his services.
I feel like the only time I see "crystal ball[s]" references, it's always related to them being wrong.
Very well could be!
Which is why I think Harris ends up choosing Georgia State.
Those crystal ball "experts" know about as much about where a kid will commit as I do.
He is either going to come back to the good guys or go to Kentucky. That is our biggest threat. Everyone laughs at that, but it's true. He spends a lot of time at UK and has friends there. They just had their best class ever and there is a lot of hype down here about the direction of the football team.
Perfect. See, he will actually see the home team beat its rival that day instead of what he saw in Cbus on Tuesday.
when Damien re-commits and we all get confused by which D. Harris has the ball.
Back to the basement with you, he's 16!
Thank God my last few years of coaching fb at the h.s. level in MI found me in a situation, at a rural school with a scary diversity containing 2 ethnic groups, We had one player of Latino heritage, a stud at guard and MIKE, or in my "52" scheme,the inside ss lber, also known as "the wolfman," in honor ot the last wolverine to earn that tag, Don Dufek.The other minoriy was an afro-american who could basically outrun everyone he ran against on defense, provided the crackback was successful, and on the defensive side could catch everyone who he allowed past him in pass covereage. In other words, one played according to the keys he was supposed to read, the other pure instinct that got him in trouble many times on the defensive side of the ball. I probably could have set his ass on defense but I wanted to keep his head in the game. and isasmuch as he averaged 43 yds per TD carry or literally scoring every 6 touches, thought it worth the gamble. Thought the trade-off was worthwhile because we had 21 varsity players and we lost that semi-final by a score of 16-14 and we celebrated the victory on a 28 yd fg that was dead center but, alas about one foot too short. Damn, our opponent, a 7 time state champ went on to win the finals by 35 points. This, too, was a team that had beaten us with a running clock in the 4th quarter when we met in the regular season. They both went on to earn GLIAC shollies, along with the starting qb on that team. ^I talked to the RB prior to his 11th grade year and told him he "would be a stud should he stay with us." A prophecy that proved correct. I also told him he would gain greater exposure if he chose to go with one of the better known teams in the area, i.e., Fruitport, Orchard View and to a lesser degree the Big Reds because they had perhaps 6 boys that could turn the corner and run away from the defense. ^I bring this up, not as a matter of race, but where a player decided, by circumstances and teammates, of which he had 21 when healthy, would be the best fit for him. And this is my point. If Damien decides, most likely on the area allowed him by next year's OL, that he will be able to gain the second level quickly and with superior running skill, take it to the house, he'll do great in AA, and as a currenr LOI signee stated, "Hell, if all goes wrong, I'll still have the Michigan degree," then AA is where he should commit. But if the OL does not prove itself next season, then, if he, I would, indeed, contemplate seriously about pledging to a team with a proven ground attack. Campbell would be a great pickup as a wr, not unlike Terrel, Arrington, Edwards and the lot. But if Coach Hoke wishes to keep picking up RBs that fit his style of "Man Ball," the OL must stand up big. His decision to revisit if a good thing. He wants UM, but he wants them to play like Hoke and his fellow recruiers have told him, "By time you get to campus, we'll be the Michigan old." This is actualy a good test as to his ability to get these blue chip OL to play at the level anticipated. If not, I cannot blame tne young man for taking his considerable talents elsewhere. If, on the other hand, they begin to gel and play the way Hoke thinks they will, I think a decision in our favor willd do both parties a world of good, and after all, isn't that what it's supposed to be?
They didn't work
