scout has announced he's going to michigan?!?!
Derrick Green [Open] Thread
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.
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.
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.
Green did say Dymonte would be one of the first to know.
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?
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.
Stop filtering everything you do through the paradigm of, "How can our rivals use this against us?" It's embarrassing.
Jabari Parker'd like the LSJ did.
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?
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?
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:
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
This announcement is a big deal. I wonder how much fun it is to see grown men freak out over where an 18 year old decides to go to college.
You must be new here
Unsure whether the news or the capitalization scheme is more awesome here.
