Arnett is a teenager and probably has a great sense of humor. You are too wound up. Dee had some fun with all the attention as well. Do you think the same about him or are you cool with Dee since he will be here in a couple of months? Hope Arnett wants to join in the fun at the Big House, if not, I wish him good luck.
He isn't coming to Ann Arbor. Period.
might not be so clearly the case anymore.
and yes, Arnett has been toying with people for a while now...however, it wouldn't surprise me if he was not there today
Dude is a jokester. He's got crazy skills though.
He was at the Michigan game according to Tom.
That makes it very simple........I believe Tom
I know I saw a tweet earlier this week or last week complaining about how "grown men" take everything he says so seriously. Then he started boasting about usc, msu, and Boise. I think he is just doing a Dee hart with the public.
he missed a good game
Edit: maybe not
TomVH said he was in Ann Arbor. I trust TomVH.
That was taken this morning. He was seen by the GBW staff in the stadium. He was there.
GBW has a picture with Arnett at the game today. He was there.
Great job done by the coaches for even getting him to take an unofficial visit. There is always a chance until he signs his letter of intent.
He was absolutely at the game. Saw him walking out giving an interview to Sam Webb, and DUH TOM SAID HE WAS SO HE WAS.
He's been fucking with people on Twitter for a while now.
he was there. I don't think he'll end up blue but he's not going to Boise State, come on.
Tweet by DeA earlier:
It's pretty nice and quiet out here in Idaho.. Can't wait to see the blue turf later on.. Should be fun
I don't see Boise State on his list anywhere. The kid is a practical joker, he knows that the fans are hanging on his every tweet. He loves to toy and get a good laugh. Personally i find him funny. As to wether or not he will play for U of M, only time will tell. After a day like today though, our chances can only improve. Just my opinion, take it FWIW.
It makes me sick how much I care!!
I doubt he will sign with UM, but I trust TomVH when he says Arnett planned on being in A2 for the game.
I hope that Arnett comes to Ann Arbor but, realistically, if he doesn't then some other receivers are going to put up NFL numbers in this offense. If he chooses to go elsewhere so be it...
A question for DeAnthony Arnett would be to consider who is more likely the higher selection in their draft year for the NFL...Ronald Johnson at USC or Roy Roundtree from Michigan?
RichRod has something good going on offensively here...Arnett would be smart to step up.
Will be drafted higher.
Stonum is a better projection for the NFL.
I'll take that action. In a world where Anthony Gonzales goes 32nd overall...apparently production matters. Roundtree will be similarly sized in his draft year and with better production. I wouldn't project ROJO into the first round (nor Roundtree) but I'll be interested to see the outcomes.
Gonzalez has NFL caliber athleticism, speed, and size, whether we like it or not. Roundtree is not the same physical specimen that Rojo is, and I seriously doubt that he'll continue to produce enough in this offense to make up the ground in their physical differences.
No DeAnthony is definetly messing with people. I saw him outside Gate 1 today at the Michigan game sporting Michigan gear. He watched the receivers go through drills before the game and i saw him walking around Crystler after the game with a big smile on his face.
I'm really sorry to do this, thanks for the information and all, but you're clearly a Michigan fan so you should know, and you're one of many to do this, but come on guys it's Crisler. Not Chrysler, not Cristler, not Crystler. I hate to be the spelling guy, but this is such a pet peeve of mine. Just like how people spell it Good Time Charlie's.
his tweeting was obviously a tease. So, being a fun-loving guy, this was obviously the right game to attend. Must have been fun for him, whatever his intentions.
That "SpartanGA" guy replying to a few of Tom's tweets is a fucking assbag.
"Nice frosted tips. 1998 called, they want their hairdo back."
He's a semi-regular poster on Valenti's former website -- sportsinferno.com -- and he has more posts in Michigan football threads than he does any others.
young black kid in section 21 about row 2 decked out in Spartan gear. Anyone know who that was?
Why do people who clearly don't support either team (folks who show up in MSU/OSU gear) even show up at games? Well maybe they enjoy watching football but why wear rival apparel? What are they trying to prove?
Also, I understand that Maize winter type clothing isn't a hot seller and maybe people don't want to buy blue stuff either but why wear a oh, I don't know, red jacket/hoodie? Seriously, it's the color of our biggest rival and you're wearing it to a home game. Wear white or black or anything besides red.
I live in CA and am the biggest wolverine fan in CA. I ALWAYS rock my M gear whenever I go to a USC or UCLA game because that is my team. I love college football and love taking my boys to experience it in person.
he must be a recruit.
was that yes, he did look like a recruit. A 17 year old kid in gear that doesn't match either of the schools playing, sitting right up by the field on the home side? That doesn't scream "recruit" to you?
Mentioning that he was black was simply a descriptor. Perhaps someone knows who he was.
But I saw him too.
It was Drew Sharp with face paint. They took away his press credentials, so he got desperate.
at Utah today. The best shot during the show was when they panned behind Desmond and some dude in the crowd was wearing a #23 Michigan jersey, plain as day. Michigan stuff is like a good pair of jeans, you can rock them anywhere, anytime...
I transcribed Sam talking to Arnett at UM after the game.
We have a ton of ground to get back. I'm willing to bet, unless this weekend REALLY tickled his fancy, he's headed west.
DGDestroys or anyone else, isn't Arnett suppose to decide fairly soon, i.e some time in the next few weeks. Also, has he been on all of his officials?
I heard a rumor he's deciding Thursday? I think if we have a shot with him, he'll push that back.
That's what I thought, I don't remember where I heard that. I don't expect him to come here, would love to have him. I just hope he doesn't go to MSU. We have a good shot with Watkins and have Conway already. Not sure where I heard this, is Conway good to go with grades. I hope so.
but you should tell us if this is something you have personal knowledge of or if it is your educated opinion based off non-insider info.
If you have insider info then just say it to be so.
Please do not identify that you work with THE KNOWLEDGE related to this matter.
I have a feeling that DeAnthony is pulling a Big Will/ Dee Hart except this is 100x more confusing.
Imagine Big Will if he'd have had a Twitter account...the board would still be in recovery.
We have plenty of posters that have inside information of one form or another. If you say "my opinion is based on inside information" then people will give you some leeway. If your opinion is based on nothing but your "logical deductions" then it is pretty useless. Clarify your basis for the opinion that Arnett is coming here.
I'll try to explain it a third time.
- I think Arnette will come here. Just a hunch; he's an in-stater.
- Arnette is going to be blue. I can't tell you my sources, but just trust me on this one. I know some people close to the situation.
Are you number 1 or number 2? No one gives 2 shits if you have a hunch. People will give your opinion more weight if you are number 2. Notice how number 2 gives nothing away.
Is it just me or are you all anxiously awaiting Tom's information on this game? Especially after a thriller like this.
i always thought it was a pretty long walk there from campus but i had no idea i was walking that far. no wonder im always tired after the game
2012 if everthing goes our way.
Qb- Denard Sr.
Rb- Smith Sr./ Toussaint Jr./ Hopkins Jr./ Hart So.
WR- Watkins So./ Arnett So./ J-Rob So.
WR- Stokes Sr./ Miller So./ Jackson Jr.
Slot- Roundtree Sr./ Gallon Jr./ T-Rob Jr.
TE- Moore Sr.
I think this offense would be better than right now!!
A man can dream can't he...
The only sad thing about seeing that is realizing the team will then be losing all those great players the following years. I know there will be semi-experienced back-ups waiting to step up, but I feel due to the tough times the team has fought through recently, I'm more connected to these players than to others in the past.
for those who havent seen arnett's film, hes basically roundtree with better speed and hands. im not sure that there is a single WR in this class that is a better fit for our system. he would be a huge get.
So basically your saying Arnett is the next Mario Manningham.
hard to say, i know nothing about his weed smoking habits
Hey Captain obvious, if you're so close to the situation, how come you can't even spell Arnett's name right?
I'm asking if another poster has inside info; not claiming it myself. I'm not close to any situations - I live in Chicago.
Arnett is a head case we don't need him. Go to Boise or where ever
We are Michigan!!!!!
Speak for yourself. I want him on this team.
Cut him some slack. He is a teenager, all teenagers want attention, hell, even most adults want attention.
Ergo why cbook is posting.
We are Michigan!!!!!
I think you forgot to add "State" to the end of that.
I would delight in seeing how many melt-downs I could cause or create.
DA is not happy...
Would you rather have Sammy Watkins or DeAnthony Arnett?
I think this W, Roundtree's 246 helps more with Watkins!
If I had to pick, I'll take the guy who wants to be a Wolverine more.
Watkins and Arnett are both highly ranked so not sure about the difference there. From what I heard either Sam or Tom, Watkins likes the spread and thinks he fits well. Arnett doesn't like the spread. Problem for Watkins is the cold. I am not sure he can fully get over that decision, while it doesn't matter to Arnett.
Why can't we be greedy and get both.
