I know this was expected to happen eventually, but did Rivals really suddenly give Dee his 5th star once these rumors started?
Dee Hart rumors...anyone, TVH?
... This is an 18 year old kid. It is not the end of the world. We will be okay. He may still even come here. If he doesn't, we'll get someone else who is very good. I promise it will be okay.
maybe it has nothing to do with RR's status. Maybe Hart is disenchanted with the team's performance in the last two games. Kids are like that.
You have no power here.
NDNation sucks. Just sayin.
Looking around the internet tonight...man, there are a shit-ton of Michigan "fans" acting like jilted high school girls about this. It's times like this when it's embarrassing being in the same set as Michigan fans and/or sports fans...a lot of us are really emotionally immature and get our sense of self-worth in the wrong place.
*Note: forgot Dee was an early enrollee in my post above. Still...
I never thought it'd be like this!
You should've been on Haloscan in 2007. This is calm compared to the furor over the rumored hiring of Kirk Ferentz.
people are emotionally damaged, I think they're lamenting that we've lost a 5-star running back.
We haven't lost a 5-star recruit. That's why they're called rumors.
...when a mans word..was no longer his bond.
I thought he was suppose to be recruiting Cliton-Dix for us, not the other way around.
Dee Hart is a double agent trained in the snake oil arts and he's going deep undercover to get both HaHa and Trey DePriest to come with him to Michigan.
/at least I can hope
I wonder how much they are paying his mom..
are the moderators when we need to quell this hysterical bullshit? God it has been a long stretch. I feel like Drew Sharp is at the controls here. WTF?
Well a lot of people think very highly of Justice Hayes.
So we've got that going for us, which is nice.
I want him
Well, I wish him well and if he doesn't want to go here that is his choice. He is a hell of a player and has a good head on his shoulders and will choose what he thinks is best for him. I'm sure he will succeed if he does choose Bama, just not on Sept.1st, 2012.
I thought we needed defensive help more than another running back? Michigan is bigger than a single recruit or a single coach!
I blame this decommitment to all the bloggers and fans who do nothing but hate on RR and the Michigan program. The Michigan blogoshpere is crowded with negativity. How can you expect an 18 year old kid, to buy-in to some thing that the so-called fan base doesn't? You are basically expecting him to be more of a man than you are. (by you I mean the haters).
We talk all about being "all in for michigan". That applies to the fans. So support your boys and their coach. And if RR is fired support the next guy too. If not, grab a beer and enjoy some football. Let the decisions be sorted out by the authorities who actually have the power to do something, as opposed to reinforcing this vicious cycle of negativity.
Ginger Snaps? Literally...
THAT'S WHY I'M SCREAMING! DON'T YOU SEE? I HAVE A SOUL!
"Anyway, I think that's all I have to say."
If Dee flips to Alabama, blame nobody but RR and/or DB.
If Brandon were committed to RR, Hart would likely stay. He's an RR guy. But Brandon isn't committed to RR, so Hart isn't committed, either. Can't blame the kid.
DB is in a position to solidify the situation. But he isn't doing so. So it's on him. And it's on RR for putting him in this position. Don't blame the fans and media for creating the "negativity." Obviously, DB doesn't feel positive about RR. It's his call.
You know something that we don't?
Since Brandon hasn't explicitly said "RR will be back next year," but instead "Let's wait til after the bowl game," yes, I think it's far to say that Brandon is not (at the moment) committed to RR.
He's not committed to breaking his word simply bc rumors of a change swirl.
Without this class's crown jewel, it becomes a little easier decision for DB. Maybe not a lot, but the scale leans a tiny bit more in that direction...
Sucks for RR that this has all been breaking during the Bust so he couldn't really take any action.
is a fan of Mgoblog. Hopefully he can call DH personally to get him to stay. that would be nice.
As bad as this hurts (if Hart flips), it has taught me (and perhaps many others) an important lesson...
The verbal commitment of an 18-year-old kid is nothing to get excited about. I'm simply done getting all worked up about the comings and goings of fickle recruits.
Until a player is wearing a winged helmet, he's just another player to me. And while Hart would be a great asset to the team, he is not yet a member of the team. Therefore, I will not cry for Dee Hart.
Some of us learned that lesson two years ago when Shavodrick Beaver decommitted. Or even earlier.
Follow these simple steps ....
1) put the gun back into the safe
2) finger on power button of computer
3) press and hold power button until screen goes dark
Go Blue !
This is what I wanted to look forward to tomorrow. I'm not going to glance at this blog tomorrow and maybe everything will be ok.
"I can play in anyones offense "
Justice will still be served.
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife...they snatchin our commits up?
they snatchin errybody
need to come and confess, we;re looking for you, we're gonna find you.
I think I'm gonna puke
Dee Hart did the one thing no else at this point has been able to do:
- unified the fanbase in something
- took the attention of RR
I think he sticks with us personally but who knows?
Your spelling is as beautifully done as my plastic surgery.
Honestly. I haven't been as excited for a recruit as I am about Dee Hart in a very long time. If he goes to Alabama I will be very disappointed.
I already really don't like Alabama. This will make me like them less.
Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips running back Demetrius Hart committed to Michigan over Alabama and Auburn in October. Now there are rumors that the nation's No. 17 ranked prospect may be having second thoughts.
TheWolverine.com has learned that several sources close to Hart are saying the 5-8, 190-pound back plans to rescind is pledge from Michigan and will make a verbal commitment to Alabama on Friday. Hart himself has been unavailable for comment.
Hart was Michigan's highest ranked recruit in the 2011 class. He took his official visit to Michigan for the Wolverines' home game against UConn in September and followed that trip with visits to Alabama and Auburn before committing to the Wolverines following a home game on Oct. 8.
Michigan does have a commitment from Grand Blanc (Mich.) running back Justice Hayes, the nation's No. 84 ranked prospect and the No. 3 all-purpose back.
Still sucks, I agree that if DB would stand behind RR then stuff like this wouldnt happen. Makes me wonder if the decision has already been made....
At least well get the chance to wish he hadn't decommited come 2012 if it's true.
