Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Scout realizing they shouldn't ruin an 18 year old's big moment...shouldn't happen ever to be honest.
Your father wouldn't want to hear this, Sonny. This is business, not personal.
Guessing it was the pre-written story and someone accidentally hit the publish button.
Denard has spent the offseason working really hard and smiling at people.
There's no indication whatsoever on Scout of any mutual interest between Arkansas and Green, but that info might be pretty old. If nothing else, the big meathead could stress how his system is built around a feature back running behind a huge OL.
scout has announced he's going to michigan?!?!
This is what it says on the picture caption for Scout's "announcement,"
"Dymonte Thomas pre-announces Green to U-M"
That's not cool if that is real. Atleast let the kid announce.
"I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member" - Groucho Marx
Or if it isn't.
Is the classic flip flop. Leak out that he is picking Michigan. Then pick someone else. I hope to god it's not.
THIS IS MICHIGAN
Is this a joke? Talk about paranoia... Green would not do that after all of the coaches and recruits he has spent time with.
I'm pretty sure he wouldn't intentionally leak one school just to pick another. Seems unnecessarily spiteful.
I saw Farrell tweet that he hasn't called anyone yet.
CAUTION: BASELESS SPECULATION
If anyone's curious how Auburn and Tennessee fans are feeling about this announcement, Auburn fans seem kind of confident, but quite a few of them seem to be conceding.. to UT?
Meanwhile, at the UT Boards, they also seem a little less than fully confident, with more seeming to think he's leaning towards Michigan than Auburn (lots of these posts won't be visible unless you're a 24/7 VIP or whatever it's called)..
Just trying to kill time 'til 4. Green, Go Blue.
It's not like his dad needs a church...so I can't see Auburn being the choice.

I would have gladly waited a couple hours to not undercut the kid's moment. What a crock.
"A flute with no holes is not a flute. A donut with no hole is a danish"
Green did say Dymonte would be one of the first to know.
If I say a duck can pull a truck, shut up and hook the sucka up!
It said on there that Dymonte Thomas "pre-announced" it. FWIW
EDIT: Wow, was I slow on the draw. Call me the anti-Scout.
And i hope the jerks on this site don't think it's funny and start posting fake announcements around 4pm. Have some class today people we're all waiting in anticipation, don't make it more annoying then it needs to be by being jerks.
A good sign of things to come?
Football is both an identity and a terminal illness. A rhythm and a chaos and an opiate for the mind all at once.

Hence why it was taken down. Please stop posting stuff like this. It will only feed the trolls and add to the schadenfraude for rivals if Green doesn't commit.
Full-on Decatur Clan. Whatever happens, GO BLUE!
Stop filtering everything you do through the paradigm of, "How can our rivals use this against us?" It's embarrassing.
HOKEAMANIA RUNNIN' WILD
Jabari Parker'd like the LSJ did.
You Get Nothing MSU. You Lose, Good Day Sir!
My first thought. Dewey Defeats Truman?
Miles to Michigan.
Just to avoid total meltdown over the next 82 minutes, we could start the 2014 announcements about 365 days early.
My prioritized wish list:
1. Joe Mixon - great vision, cuts, balance, speed and good size.
2. Elijah Hood - great power, balance, size with good speed and cuts.
3. LJ Scott - very good power, balance, vision and good speed
Any will go well with Green!

Shane Morris is shilling hard on Twitter. Including a Blockhams image. Also he tweets every ten minutes or so, is that what the kids do these days?
"I just hope Tressel doesn't fire me"
Kid has talent but needs to work harder - not that I know a shxt about him.
Wow. This is a sad moment for me. The first time Im too old to understand a word. What the heck is shilling?
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
Not familiar with British currency I take it?
He is saying that Shane Morris is being a shill, as in a promoter. When you're "shilling" a product, you're advertising or pushing it.
Thank you for bringing me off the ledge. I knew the British part, but never heard it as a verb.
I am so full of anticipation
you think of if I tweet at DG he could move it up to 3:45?
someone should banish the idiot that posted the Hello: post that was removed
All he did was post a hello post in response to a recruiting site declaring a commitment. That is scouts error...bad form yes, but probably a little much for banishment
What was up with that "Hello Derrick Green?" thread?
Scout briefly had a page up saying Green committed to U of M. That page is now down for whatever reason. The "hello" post here was taken down because one it is premature and two it is messed up to ruin this kids moment.
SOMEONE TELL SIXZERO TO STOP JINXING THIS.
My apologies to anyone offended by the "Hello" thread. I saw the article on Scout, went to post it in this thread and read:
"Unless Green or someone close to the situation confirms his choice before the announcement, there doesn't need to be another thread posted."
I figured Scout would be reputable enough to fall into that category. Luckily, Scout has taken their pre-mature article down, and Green will get to make his announcement at 4:00 as planned. Hopefully he goes blue.
Dymonte sounds like he's close to this, but I was thinking more along the lines of his dad or him. Like you say, Scout took the story down and it's probably for the best.
Yeah, I honestly wasn't trying to fuck anything up. Just saw the article, clicked on this thread to post it because I thought it was relevant, and when I read your mod edit in the original post I thought that was the situation I was in. I'm glad scout took it down, glad the "Hello" post was taken down, and am looking forward to his announcement.
Did you hear it come from Green himself? You've been here long enough to know that wasnt cool
Wasn't that big of a deal. Let's let it go and stop complaining about it.
We are more offended by your double post.
And a double post. I'm on fire today.
FWIW here's the link to the live stream of his announcement:
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
Columbus dispatch. Noooooooo. That means he is going to OSU.
Whatever he decides, best of luck to him.
When its offical we better crash the site with joy
If you see someone in an airport with Michigan logos on luggage and they are wearing a pilot uniform come say hello.
