"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Danny O'brien Official Visit to UM
Double misleading title batman!
to make clear this is an "official visit" and not a committment.
That will haunt my dreams.
You'll actually be ABLE to sleep after looking at that?!?
Not sure yet, I'll let you know...
Pointing us to a good article with great news has to erase at least half the double fail, no? I'm just happy to see that the coaches are, in fact, interested in taking 2 d-line after all.
The double fail was for two reasons:
1. Posted two threads on the same topic
2. Both threads had the title "Danny O'brien Official to UM" which led people to believe he had committed.
would lead me to believe he committed
Mad-Max style home-made combat vehicles these people road in from the hills to take your children and gasoline.
everything you get for wording the title the way you did.
Hey, in my defense, I'm an idoit
Roll with the punches.
i got really excited and thought this was a "Hello:" post
You sir got my hopes way up. Now I am sad.
good god, please put 'visit' in the title!
thanks for ruining my day.
my day has been salvaged by witnessing the swift and brutal justice of the mgocommunity through downvoting.
Mr. Hoke draws a lot of water in this town. You don't draw shit, Dantonio. Now we got a nice, quiet little dying auto industry community here, and I aim to keep it nice and quiet. So let me make something plain. I don't like you sucking around, bothering our citizens, Dantonio. I don't like your jerk-off name. I don't like your jerk-off face. I don't like your jerk-off behavior, and I don't like you, jerk-off. Do I make myself clear?
Terrible title bro... but awesome he's coming.
I got REAL excited by the OP title. But, it answered my question whether Michigan and Danny O'Brien were still mutually interested in each other. Cool.
No red herring thread titles!
I only saw the corrected title referencing the official visit but I'm still angry that you upset my MGoBrethren.
the original title was:
Danny O'brien Official to UM
Money quote from the Sam Webb article (MSpeedKills just relays - often premium - information, as far as I can tell), IMO:
"Hoke said to me, 'Take your time. I know you're one of those guys that is really making a decision in cutting them down.' He said, 'Take your time and we will take you whenever.' That stood out to me."
That stood out to me, too...
excellent, he's worth the wait.
MSpeedKills just relays - often premium - information, as far as I can tell
You tell correctly. Don't get me wrong he's usually reliable, but that's because he's just tweeting what the premium guys say.
The part about taking him whenever is what really stands out though. Should answer any questions people had about where he stands with us and vice-versa.
I can't confirm this because I don't have a scout membership, but someone said that there is a post about him tweeting premium info.
Yup. It's pinned to the top of the board.
Did you see his "live chat" thing he did on twitter. Most of his answers were things I could have come up with by reading recruiting sites.
Come on Ace, we all know Hoke puts a gun to every kid's head and forces them to commit. That article is total BS.
He's visiting MSU on Oct 15th, but might announce his commitment on Oct 7th. Kinda telling, isn't it?
Nice catch - I missed that on the first read. Certainly seems like this will come down to Michigan and Tennessee.
To me the visit timing seems to be a good sign for MSU. it seems like when you schedule a visit after a possible commit date, that school is your likely choice.
Not really surprising. Seems that for a while now it's either been Michigan or the SEC.
Sparty wouldn't have accepted O'Brien. Flint is way too close to East Lansing
GREAT Brady Hoke quote.... sounds like he wants the guy!
I understood your post! Glad he's dropping in for that game. It should be a great time for anyone not wearing a gold helmet. Go Blue!!!
the title didn't have the word 'visit' in it before, hence all the outrage
Advice of the day: Words mean things.
Tomorrow's discussion: magnets work... but how?
Glad you updated the title now...I got excited at 1st. This and the Barnett departure is not making for a good lunch.
Plenty of room for him now.
C'mon big guy,
I'm sure Little Bro's DC has a lot of energy and that's all well and good but who do you really trust to best prepare you during your 4 year NFL internship, him or Greg Mattison?
This is your NFL career we're talking about here.
Or, let's say for some unthinkable reason you don't play pro ball, which degree would you rather have? Michigan, MSU or Tennessee?
I love me some D Tackle recruiting! and hopefully the Night game is the best recruiting tool the school has had since Mr. Mattison came to campus....
Hadn't seen the earlier title, and noticed the corrected post right after I read Adolphus Washington went southerly. So glad to see there's still interest from both sides.
EDIT: But apparently that post was also premature when I posted this at 3:15 or so.
