landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
3:00 into video :)
a powerful running back like him.
Pretty sure Dee hart wasn't recruited to be a power running back. Stephen Hopkins is our power back. That is why Dee is ranked as an all purpose back by the recruiting sites. He is more of a slasher than a straight forward runner.
Why isn't former Michigan commit BJ Daniels starting for USF?
He was never a Michigan commit, he was a Michigan recruit. He is banged up and also has been horrible passing this year. He would probably be starting if he were healthy.
Nevermind; I'm not sure if you were joking or not. Probably were.
That's right. I get him confused with Newsome.
He is hurt and they have been running a wannabe pro style offense with a spread quarterback. He's best out of the spread n shred and isn't being utilized properly. USF's a good case example for a switch from spread to pro style.
i read that already but it was more of a commentary on Rivals. But fair enough, neg as appropriate.
Neg not necessary. Thanks for the update.
Yes, he did have a post in there.
Right, but not everyone reads all of the comments. I meant the original post was very baseless and uninformative. Now if TVH had an actual post, rather than a comment, I wouldn't have said that.
FYI, right under mgoboard, there is a "Tom" button. Press this, and it acts as a filter only allowing posts which Tom either initiates or comments on. It is helpful when you want to find out if Tom has weighed in on something.
You're blowing my mind, Mr. Kass. You can probably tell I'm new to this. (Other than the double-digit amount of mgopoints.)
I literally never noticed that, +1 to you sir, for pointing that out.
I'll just neg him. I likle nothing more than negging people who think they're the correct party.
When I logged in today the first thing I did when see the earlier post on his possible recommit was go to the rivals site and see what they had. Nice to see it back to Michigan instead of Alabama right now.
We will know about Dee Hart when he is physically sitting in class
As opposed to when he is metaphorically sitting in class? (I know what you mean, I just felt like being a smart-ass for some reason.)
Being a smart ass doesn't work as well if you explain that you are being a smartass.
That's kinda how I feel about the "/s" tag too, but I guess it's necessary sometimes so people don't just think you're being a douche.
I have heard of 'sitting-in' on classes. That doesn't mean someone is actually in class. I want the warm fuzzy feeling of looking over in class and seeing him physically there. Howeva, that would be difficult since I have graduated some time ago (unless I was a stalking freak).
That's cool. People do that kind of thing here.
where the football players only show up in class metaphorically.
He's back on our commit list as a "Soft Verbal."
that he didn't decommit last night as expected, but that if Brandon doesn't announce soonish that Rich Rod is staying things will continue to deteriorate.
Did anyone notice on the Alabama Rivals website that they were saying, "Will possible 5 star flip to Tide?"
Funny how potentially switching from Michigan to Alabama suddenly makes him a 5 star even though his rating didn't change.
I think they mean that he'll (most likely) become a five-star in the near future, because of his ridiculous numbers.
is Dee Hart?
We need a kicker. I hope he doesn't decommit. It would be embarrassing for this board to melt down.
IT'S TIME TO GET INSIDE THE FORT
re Dee Hart threads...(except TomVH)
At first I thought yours said "re: Dee Hart dreads ... blah blah blah", which was almost banhammer worthy, but you didn't; so, this post is dumb.
Not to be go there right now, but isn's anyone worried that Dee will be another Vinnie Smith? His high lights look awful familar...just saying!
I was a little worried at first when I had seen his highlights. But when I examined them more closely, I think Dee Hart's explosion out of his cuts are phenomenal and exactly what you want to see out of a great back.
Is Dee an Facsimilie? I like his explosiveness, but just looking for a tangiable comparison.
lol...I know...my middle name is Vincent...heard it all...and yes I'm from NY
He's Vincent Smith style-wise, except with much more speed, strength and catching skills. Basically, he's pretty similar, just vastly better.
This is getting ridiculous - Brandon should step up and confirm that RR will be back. We are an improved 7-5 and going to a New Years Day bowl game. He's gonna fire the guy? Come on.
It is thinking like that that leads me to believe a lot of this is simply coming down to DB's pride. He said he isn't going to decide until the season's over so dammit! he isn't going to decide until the season is over!!
I have listened to all this DB love and posts about the undying faith so many have in the guy, but I have to say, with each passing day my faith in the guy diminishes.
This is the first evidence we have in which to judge DB as an AD.. None of his past really correlates that well to being an AD. In this instance, I can't see how anyone thinks this timeline isn't a massive mistake. Beyond this, no one can point to anything to say "remember when DB did this and everything worked out....just have faith". He hasn't done anything to this point to warrant that faith.
To say that he isn't wielding to the bitching of fans and media is drastically understating what is going on here. Due to the uncertainty of the situation we are losing ground with current targets and it looks like we may possibly lose some of those already considered to be in the fold because of the way this has been handled. To say this is only about fans and media is absurd.
I am a Cardiologist but have many friends in the business world and I can say that there aren't many CEO's that don't recognize that there will be times when situations dictate that you need to abandon what you thought was the correct course of action and move in another direction. Changing your stance or gameplan because of a change in situation doesn't make you a weak leader, it makes you a smart one.
The biggest mistake he made was providing a concrete timeline for his evaluation, there was really no need to do that with anyone outside the program. He has a chance to put his pride aside and do what is in the best interest of the program now, even though it goes against his original plan. If he can't do that, I will say he has made two monumental mistakes in the short time he has been the AD at UM.
I am not saying DB won't turn out to be a great AD, but I am questioning all the faith people have in him considering the evidence we have to go on thus far.
They know as much as they knew when they rashly "deccommitted" him. Which is nothing. Just rumors.
Dee will be at Michigan! Dee loves Michigan and he does not want to sit on the bench for two season at AL.
hire someone ta kick down David Brandons door and grab him by his balls and make him a offer he wont refuse.....cause if RR goes, so does Shawn Conway, Dee, and everyone else, he thinks he's bigger than the team.....
everyday, we need to have a bunch of Papa Johns pizza's delivered to the AD's office until the "decision" is made....
This is not an original thought, but remember the good old bad old days, when the hot recruiting news was when you saw a Freshman in a Michigan uniform, which suggested that at some point the previous year he had committed?
I'm putting this here instead of a whole new thread, but according to twitter:
