to visit FLORIDA!!!!! ughhhhhhhhhhhh
[ED:BISB - Internet ASPLODE]
Why can't this be Score 6!!
first double post.
@D3_MrUnderated_: Reporter already lied on me , smh
That headline is misleading. Dawson is just camping, not taking an official visit. Carry on.
With a committed prospect, would coaches look at camping differently than a visit?
I don't think this is any different. Friday Night Lights isn't a camp. It's a recruiting tool. It will be interesting to see what Hoke does, if anything...
Call it what you want, but this is a visit. He's paying his own way to go to an event on Florida's campus which is sponsored by Florida strictly for recruiting.
now wait, aren't official visits usually fully paid by the university? And aren't camps usually paid for out of pocket? Are the elite 11 and IMG 7 on 7 paid for by the kids or does the event pay for them? If this isn't paid for by the university and the players have to pay their own way to the other camps, then why isn't this looked at as a camp?
I don't believe coaches are actually allowed to coach at these events. It's basically like the BBQ at the
Stadium, except there are some "football like" events going on.
Nobody cares, they're too busy sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring what's actually happening. FNL is a major recruiting tool for them; Hoke and Co. (along with his fellow recruits) need to squash this ASAP before it gets out of hand. I know it's a bummer to think about but if things keep trending the way they are David will probably not be wearing the winged helmet. Saying that FNL is "just a camp" is like saying the the UofM BBQ is just a cookout.
How do you know they're "sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring what's actually happening?"
I'm going to play devil's advocate here: Let's say that you're David Dawson. Might it be possible that you want to go play kids from Florida because of the talent and level of competition down there? He may just want to see how he stacks up against the best that the country has to offer.
Official meltdown is not averted yet. This camp is as if you merged our camp and the BBQ at the Big House together.
It is also like the thing that OSU hosts, Friday Night Lights.
Recruiting will be heavily involved. We don't need to meltdown yet, but there should be concern. Florida could become a big player here and it will be interesting to see how our coaches handle this.
misleading tweet. Sorry, guys.
Damn, "hate" is such a strong word!
It was only a misleading headline if you're easily misled.
visit =/= official visit
A "visit" (official or unofficial) would almost certainly mean that a guy was no longer considered by the Michigan coaching staff to be committed to Michigan. This is not that case. I'd call that a pretty big difference, and not just a semantic one.
Why do you feel that this isn't the case? It sounds a lot like a visit to me.
(i.e. Steve Lorenz):
What I know about David Dawson: Last Sunday, David told me he was going to camp at Florida. I asked him what the coaches would think. He told me they didn't get upset when he camped at Alabama last month (if you remember, the Cass crew was in the area for a 7v7 tourney) and that he was definitely going to camp down there. It's worth keeping an eye on.
Commits camp in various places all the time. Does it mean he's not interested in Florida? No. But it also doesn't necessarily mean that he is interested.
Is he visiting the campus of the Florida Gators? Yes? Case closed.
People aren't complaining that the information was inaccurate. They were complaining that it was misleading.
Information can be correct and still be misleading. In fact, factually accurate information that leads one to an inaccurate impression of a set of events seems like the definition of "misleading."
At this point in the recruiting process (July 6th with several weeks of summer remaining), it is presumptuous to assume that a "visit" would automatically be an official visit.
Bryan Mone was planning a visit to Michigan.
Orlando Brown is visiting Michigan.
Derrick Green is visiting Michigan.
Alvin Bailey visited Michigan not long ago.
They were all discussed as visits, but because it's summer time, it should be understood that they can't be officials. So if there's time left for both unofficial summer visits and official visits, jumping to a conclusion that it will be an official visit means you're allowing yourself to be misled.
His logic is infallable, circular, even.
I see you're adding a lot to the discussion once again...
Speaking of infallable, so is your spelling.
I hate to say it but Magnus is 100% right on this. For all intents and purposes this is a visit. I am willing to bet that if he follows through, he will not be considered part of this class by the staff and they will move on.
I would also agree with him on this being a reason the other Michigan recruits "ditched" him and would add that perhaps maybe he was the one flirting with the FL guys and the UM guys said "see ya." I think we have all seen how close this class has become.
I can't decide if the OP should get the banhammer for this post or for the Vanilla Ice avatar.
So I guess I'm going to have to go with "both reasons."
2 Username and low point total
3 Lack of link
4 Little girl dramatic ughhhhhhhhhh
5 Incorrect/misleading info (he's camping in Florida, not visiting UF)
4 is not a fail if the dude is actually a little girl, right?
Hey, don't hate on low point totals! I've been on the board for awhile and choose not to post every thought that crosses my mind. Hence, the low point total. Clearly this does not apply to the OP, however.
the OP should be sent to Bolivia and allowed to return only when he realizes the dangers of being a moron.
Maybe this is why the Michigan guys ditched Dawson last night...
but I still always thought that the staff didn't want their commits camping at other schools either.....
In the FAQ doesn't give an example of "Justin Feagin" is a terrible title, while it should be "Justin Feagin leaves team"? This should've at least said David Dawson to visit Florida. Or maybe I'm overreacting.
You're overreacting so much your post is borderline unreadable.
Honestly if that happens then it would be Phroah Brown all over again. That would be bad.
chill and be cool
This is a strong contender for worst thread of the year.
The year is still young.
