Alabama's there to see Ha-Ha, right? Right?!
This is what happens when your school (AKA. DB) doesnt fully support the Coach. there will probably be more(decommits) to come in the future let another 3 year drought begin J.Harbaugh
I'm not sure why this deserves to be negged. I think it's a legitimate concern that uncertainty regarding Rodriguez might hurt this recruiting class, which would put the program in an even deeper whole in terms of talent/depth, which would be a major obstacle to the success of a potential new HC.
I'm personally terrified that the longer Michigan stays off the map of elite teams, the closer the South Bend nightmare is to coming to Ann Arbor.
Oh wait. Rumors. Derp. TomVH or GTFO.
Not a surprise. There will be many more given the fact that these kids won't know if the coach who recruited them will be their coach. Brandon is not an idiot, so I have to assume he knows his waiting will hurt recruiting. Which means he's planning to replace Rich Rod. I think this is bad now matter how you look at it.
Of course it is. Huge hit to RR.
First of all, I want Rich Rod back. My point is/was that when you have blue chip recruits hearing that the coach that recruited them may be fired in a few weeks, why would they stay? Especially if you do not have ties to the institution? I'm prepared for a terrible recruiting class, due in part to the LONG wait by Brandon. I wish he would come out and say "Rich Rod" is our coach and end all of the negative recruiting that is going on right now.
Stop with this shit. It's getting real annoying already and overdone. And I think I speak for a lot of us. It was funny the first 20 times. Not anymore. Sorry.
stop when the 20....million posts of RR/JH/DB/Panic/Emo/ITS HIS FAULT!!!! shit stops. Once it stops, I have no reason to nuke. I find it funny you are more annoyed with this...look down this thread. That doesn't annoy you more than a 40 second clip of an atomic bomb that takes up the space of all of one post? You sir are a blind panda.
Between this and the Hard Edge crap your schtick has become old.
schtick of saying schticks are old has become old.
Your pathetic as a sloth is fast. Join me in the Nethers.
If you're going to critique or otherwise disparage someone, at least do it using proper grammar. People in glass houses . . .
jhackney is a class act and a perfect gentleman. you deserve every atom bomb you get swine!!!!
First of all, you have one of my heroes as your avatar, so I must congratulate you.
Secondly, I hope you are not lumping me in the EMO/It's RR's fault crowd. It's simply logical for an 18 year old big time recruit to reconsider when there is a chance that the coach may be fired. Even Brian has written about the possiblity that Rich Rod may not be our coach next month. I just wish Brandon would support Rich Rod NOW and help get us ready to competing for championships!
I didn't nuke you, I sounded a rumor siren. I couldn't have even been close on a prediction of what ensued afterwards. Makes the siren more applicable now.
Mind=blown with the emotions of an 8 year old girl on here. Dee hasn't decommitted yet officially and we have a meltdown that makes Chernobyl look like spilled water. (not even milk)
Instead of rationally looking at the situation as we might lose him, but we are still stacked in the backfield and have Hayes on board, people complain about what bothers them and voice opinions that don't contribute anything but more ANGAR and division.
Point in case? Look who has the most negged post on this thread. Was it a post on RR being fired based on flimsy and hypothetical situations? Nope. It was a clip of an atom bomb.
The same people that would bitch if you slammed their threads about the same beaten horse of fire [fill in the blank] tell us to move on and say "If we don't like it, don't look at it." Yet, their selective rule does not apply to one post in the thread.
All you can do is craugh (cry +laugh).
You sir have unleashed a shitstorm of epic proportions. Haha. Unfortunately if Dee does decommit, they will have fresh meat to continue the FIRE RABBLE RABBLE. Reminds me of turkey vultures spotting a fresh roadkill.
Edit: I did nuke you. Can't unnuke so I have then +1 you for being civil and not struck with cut wrists by the sudden outflowing of this emo thread. May your avatar make a fast recovery from radiation poisoning.
....In other news, I have a few hundred faxes from the Hunter in my basement that I got from his editor at the end, Douglas Brinkley. He was a former professor of mine. He gave them to me when I last saw him in New Orleans (it's mostly from "Better than Sex). It might be nice to dig them out and read them just to get my mind off of all the negativity.
Protect them with your life and put me in your will for those things.
Tough call. I'd have to go with Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail. Just brilliant.
What about you?
I love his early work from South America. I lived in Ecuador, working as a teacher. I required new teachers to read "Why anti-gringo winds often blow south of the border." It is absolutely brilliant.
You are a teacher too? Internet HIGH FIVE!
It is a tough call. I like the Rum Diary and The Great Shark Hunt. I still have yet to read Generation of Swine.
Just interviewed for TFA today. I am hoping I get in and placed in Detroit. That way, I can make the home games every weekend. Yes, I requested Detroit so I could go to Michigan games. That and I will be enrolled for grad classes at U of M.
Did I say great? I mean holy shit is our luck bad...
Just another day...Just another kick to balls
We are the easiest school around to negatively recruit right now. ugh.
If true, we havent even changed coaches and are losing recruits. Thank you Fire RR crowd.
for not saying something either way. Uncertainty is the worst possible thing in recruiting.
And whining on every single message board helps a lot...
It depends on your perspective.
Has been dancing about his commitment moreso than his running through the defense. Who knows where he ends up and it may seem like a headcase anyway. If RR stays and this kid becomes a Wolverine, then great. If Harbaugh becomes head coach and this kid does not become a Wolverine then I don't give a shit about his future.
He took longer than our impatient fan base would have liked to verbal, but he did what was expected. Now the coach that has been recruiting him for three years is sitting in limbo while an AD that apparently doesn't understand today's youth says nothing and thinks there is going to be no repercussions. What do you expect him to do especially since he is enrolling early. Bama isn't even a great fit for him, but at least he doesn't have to worry about the coach he commits to not being there when he arrives days after our bowl game. Actually with Saban you never know.
Stay classy Broseph.
Interesting, I didn't reply to the person the board put my reply under.
Your post? Read it again. Then read it one more time. Then realize that it's people like you with this crappy attitude of judging a kid you don't even know who's trying to figure out his life for the next 3 or 4 years that's creating a negative image of this fan-base. I boo you, I boo your attitude, and I say kindly refrain from posting stuff like this ever again.
If you ever feel the need to spew this crap, I recommend shutting your computer down and taking a walk to evaluate where your life is at that you feel the need to say hateful stuff about 18 year old kids who are just trying to live their lives and do the best they can for themselves.
And if you're wondering what set me off:
...and this kid does not become a Wolverine then I don't give a shit about his future.
We should fire RR now, and then wait for over a month before we approach Harbaugh? That sounds like a brilliant plan for recruiting.
You have got to be kidding me with that crap. I guess it's easier to blame anonymous posters then it is to blame the man who could end the controversy.
Because we all know that when your AD comes out with a statement, it is always best that he does the exact opposite because the fans and media tell him to.
This post couldn't have made me more angry at our fans.
Everyone who follows college football with anything more than a passing interest knows that Rodriguez is on the hottest of hot seats because he's gone 15-21 over the past 3 years and failed to beat MSU or OSU even once at one of the best programs in the country. Recruits know this. So yeah, I doubt that the fire Rodriguez crowd had anything to do with Hart decommitting.
It's a good thing there are no bridges by my apartment.
But there used to be mirrors in mine...
I've got a friend who is pretty connected, and Dee had told him that he fell in love with Michigan, not Rich Rodriguez. However, things do change.
And also, it is the internet, so take everything you read with a grain of salt.
He also pretty much said that same thing to everybody he talked to about his commitment. I don't think anyone believed him though.
This would be a totaly blow to the balls if this is true...maybe he is just messin with everyone again...who knows...I mean 2nd semester is only 4-5 weeks away.
To scare the living shit out of Brandon and have him stand behind his coach.
That DB is going to change the course for one recruit. I agree with the general sentiment though; we have 3 seasons of RR data - one game isn't going to change anything, make the call.
ZOMG DEE IS WAIVORING TOWARD AUBURN!!!!
wait, he was just fucking with us?
ZOMG DEE IS WAIVORING TOWARD ALABAMA!!!!!
It doesn't feel good
