I will be committing on Nov 14 at my school. Can't wait to get this over with!
Da'shawn Hand Decision Date
Scheduled official so far, gotta like our chances.
He's also taking an official to Bama and I think Florida before then.
Can't wait to get it over with? How about August 4th?
I approve this message.
That was my exact reaction as well.
He will take an official to Bama and Florida.
But yeah that's a good sign.
how highly i think of your handle.
Howard for President
Peppers + Hand + McDowell this year
Harris + Campbell + Cornell next year
Never heard of him
His UM official is set for UTL part 2 (Sep. 7).
you are a fucking asshole
"Fucking asshole" should be on the list, closely followed by "Congenital Douchebag."
and I don't think it's because he's sporting wood
Cut him some slack guys. He's probably just tired from running wall street.
As a fucking asshole, I resent your statement.
but then you'll follow that up by contributing like a normal nice person for a while and I'll be like "Oh Mr Rager isn't so bad" then you come back and are a total douche again. Congrats, you're the biggest douche on the blog
I approve his title as douchey mgoblog user
There's that winning personality!
between now and November, this is Definitely a great sign.
Hopefully we pummel ND under the lights and provide some
momentum. Go Blue!
This decision date leaves Da'Shawn with the following possible games to take his OV at Bama: Colorado State, Ole Miss, Georgia State, Arkansas, Tennessee, LSU
LSU would be best for Bama obviously, but is just a week before the announcement.
If he visits Bama for the LSU game a week before his commitment date and Bama wins a triller that could problematic. Hope he takes a visit for an earlier game.
If he sets an offical after UTL than we need to worry... but if the atompshere is anything like what it was during the first, I wouldnt be surprised if he commits before Nov 14
but Coach Brown is on the case now... we need a Bag Signal for him
November 14th is my birthday, completely serious.
Hopefully it's an even happier day.
You know that's exactly 9 months after Valentines Day. Just sayin'...
I was born early
January 26th was mine. Made my day that much better when Green committed. These recruiting classes Hoke & company are bringing in are fantastic.
Here's to hoping the Big House is rocking at UTL Part II, and that we pummel Notre Dame into the ground.
That bit is only funny if you include the hashtag (#).
Great sign for us! '85 and '97 defense here we come!
Watch out opposing QBS
Mone will be a force. Probably either or both of Willie Henry and Maurice Hurst will emerge as a solid player too.
Poggi. He was rated higher than both Hurst and Henry. D-line shouldn't be a problem for quite some time.
Henry Poggi and Chris Wormley either. We're going to have some impressive depth at D-line any way you look at it.
Why you sleepin on Willie??
Hand-Mone-McDowell-Marshall. Just our 2013 dline class will be terrifying. I love it.
I can haz all the starz?
Hopefully Pipkins eventually becomes the monster everyone has been waiting for. He hasn't made much of an impact so far but these things take time
247Sports.com had a brief background piece surrounding the announcement - HERE
It reiterates that Hand is schedule for an official visit just in time for the Notre Dame. I rathed liked this quote from his coach, however:
"For him he’s done all the research he’s going to do on each school,” Woodbridge assistant coach John Harris said. “Now it’s lets see where I fit in the best. The reason he wants to take these officials, obviously academically and football wise, these are the three schools he likes the most, now it’s let’s see where I can live.”
The Crystal Ball leans towards Michigan, but clearly he wants to make as informed a choice as possible. There have been other stories where he has said as much really, and for as large as this decision is and what it means, I don't think anyone would begrudge Hand these visits.

Da'Shawn Hand has already scheduled his Michigan official visit for the Notre Dame game. Doesn't have officials set to any other school.
The day after my birthday, let's make this happen.
WOOOOO HAND NEWS POSBANG EVERYONE
At this point it would be a very unlikely scenario for him to not end up at Michigan.
Well I pretty much know his exact situation so yeah....I would
IIRC he knows people close to the Da'Shawn Hand camp
Was apparently the first guy on the board to hear that VT got dropped by Hand
Seriously you guys, Hand will end up in the Mitten.
/shows self out
You should make this a diary.
I have zero ears on the ground but just from his attitude, personal makeup, comments and the like he seems like such a perfect fit for Michigan so I have felt strangely confident we land him (not that it means a thing what my feeling is). And no that doesn't hold true for every kid nor does he seem like a perfect kid for any team. I am going to go very simplistic and say he had two long time gf's in VATech and UM, and the hot new supermodel rolls into town (Bama) and like any young guy he is going to be interested and investigate. The kid also "didn't enjoy" his OSU visit - something you'd hear from a kid who knows "this girl" is a rival with "his gf". Now having dropped one of his two long time gfs for dubious reasons "they don't have my academic program" when he added a school (Bama) who also lacks the same program - engineering is nothing like sports management, I find us to be the favorite reading between the lines. Florida seems like a total non player - you hear almost nothing about them other than they are part of some sort of top 3.
Let's hope he gets me what I'm looking for
There's a joke somewhere in there about wanting a Hand for your birthday.
Lmao @ all of these birthday posts... it's as if there was some major event exactly 9 months before November 14th...
... are reading too much into the scheduling of his ov at Michigan. He'll obviously get the others scheduled. And if he goes to Bama for the game against LSU one week before he announces, it will definitely leave a positive last impression.
Based on that information alone then yes you would be correct. However, Michigan has been a much stronger favorite than most know.
Unless someone poisons a tree
Hand, McDowell, and one or two others? Wonder how the class will ultimately fill out beyond those two.
Welcome to Ann Arbor young man!
Has there been any word on whether or not Professor NEEDSARAISE will be at UTL and if so will he be on the sidelines? If not somebody needs to make this happen.
Are you talking for ND? The whole season? How much? The world needs answers.
Please do elaborate.
I'm saying he should be there to say Hello to Da'Shawn at UTL.
He should have a new presentation set up for him.
How much and what games are you referring to?
I love everything that guy produces.
Dude would be crazy to turn us down on November 14th, Peppers has some selling to do
We win that UTL 2.0 game.
