Football Display Case
I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
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?
Now, you may be asking yourself if this picture is worthy of its own thread. The answer? Yes, yes it is.
This must mean he's going to commit, probably by Sunday. The worst part about these All-star games is for the next week we have to hear about who is wearing a Michigan hat, or who has a Michigan shirt, or who is rooming with who.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
Sooooooo, who's Green rooming with?!?!
He could commit after the game, and then he could not... Green has been very friendly with basically all the players at all the schools (not a criticism, seems like his personality). Don't read that much into a picture. IMO he is a kid who wants to stretch this out, I would not doubt new schools getting mentioned now that some Bowl performances are clarifying depth for next year (and yes, that does bode well for us too)
Also (as Mark from Tremendous pointed out) it looks like Jourdan Lewis has gotten taller.
USING GRATUITOUS AMOUNTS OF CAPS LOCK SINCE APRIL 2011
He's on the far right, correct?
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
he's grown facial hair.
I thought he looked different from the last time I saw him...
That's what I thought. Thomas is like 6'1"-6'2" and Green is supposed to be 6'. I suppose it's not uncommon for a 17 year old high-schooler to go through a growth spurt.
How do you guys know everyone else hasn't gotten shorter?
Intensity is a lot of guys that run fast.
Why do we think he got taller? He's listed at 5'11", and considering Thomas and Green are 6'1" and 6'0" respectively, that's probably about right. I'd say Lewis looks at let 2 and maybe 3 inches shorter than Dymonte.
I'm not too concerned about his height, but Lewis is also the closest one to the camera. Not only is he standing in front of the other guys (except Fox, who is also turned inward), but the shot is being taken angled from Lewis's side, not head-on. Maybe he got taller, but it's probably partly an illusion.
Twitter - Recruiting Update: May 20
The caption under the picture on rivals said "Still uncommitted?".
That's worth zero
"Dream Big, Work Hard"
I like the one Dymonte posted a lot better - it says simply "Michigan Men".
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
omg he's probably a silent commit omg
It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.
The Rivals Auburn guy claims that Green was a silent commit to Auburn before the staff got fired.
Clowney was a silent here until RR got fired.
Your opinion has no value.
New Oldsmobiles are in early this year.
I think Auburn and Tennessee were right there until the coaches got fired. Now I think we're the definitely leader and he'll be "Blue" in the next couple of weeks.
Question is, are these games having an affect on any other players?
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
He just looks mean. Can't wait to see him play for blue.
"Hey, come take this picture with us. It will drive the Michigan blogs nuts. It's just too funny, man."
"Nobody cares what you think!"
This is truer than most people realize.
I don't know if it's the blogs, but definitely their Twitter accounts. Recruits do and say stuff all the time just to light the fire and watch people go crazy.
I'm sure we'll get a picture of Treadwell in a Michigan hat standing next to Dawson and Morris in the coming days.
If I were in their shoes, I would screw with folks like us all the time. These are, after all, teenagers making a huge decision. Imagine having strangers calling you all the time to ask you to tell them your thoughts on this huge decision. Then having hundreds of other strangers freaking out at every twitter, picture, and hat you wore? Etc.
Actually all the insider reports I have seen say that Treadwell has been hanging out with Robert Nkemdiche.
Greetings from Bolivia.
"It's special how the real true people hang together. And if you don't support the program you're not a true Michigan guy. It's that simple." - Gary Moeller
I predict the NCAA will be making a visit to Ole Miss in a few years to investigate recruiting improprieties. No way a consistently awful program like that can just suddenly start landing elite recruits without "stuff" going on.
We ARE Michigan....COME GET SOME!!!
Nkemdiche's brother is the starting CB for Ole Miss. Is that the "stuff" you are talking about?
have strange pants.
"I'm not a vegetarian b/c I love animals. I'm a vegetarian b/c I hate plants"
That is Chris Fox who is not playing due to a torn ACL in his last game.
"I have a dream that someday Michigan will not have freshmen on the field. That day is 2013 at the earliest." - Brian, Defense vs MSU UFR 2011
You're joking, but I feel compelled to answer anyway. That's Chris Fox, he tore his acl, and it probably hurts.
Word on the street is that's Chris Fox, he tore his ACL, and he is not playing.
Don't quote me on that though.
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing” - Bo Schembechler
Those are just warm up pants, not their uniform pants.
Chris Fox tore his ACL so he won't be playing in the game.
Awesome pic, I wonder if he took a similar picture with another group of commited guys?
'Try growing up in Texas a Michigan WOLVERINE'. Follow me on Twitter: RudygoBLUE
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
is chris fox balding?
holy crap chris fox is a large human!
I thought he tore his ACL?
He did, but he's still there hanging out
I wonder if any pics for the Under Armour Game will be getting posted soon? I am curious to see reaction from Treadwell (who took Mich out of his top 3) getting the ball from Morris. I hope he sees our group of guys and changes his mind about Michigan. We were so close to getting him.
Sorry for the ignorance, could someone list these players names left to right? Seems that Fox is the guy on the right given previous comments.
I think it's Jourdan Lewis, Dymonte Thomas, Derrick Green, Jake Butt, Chris Fox.
University of Tom Brady, B.A. '10; University of Peyton Manning, J.D. '13.
Don't apologize. Be proud that you can't name 5 unidentified high school kids.
Jourdan Lewis, Dymonte, Green, Butt
Jourdan Lewis, Dymonte Thomas, Derrick Green, Jake Butt, Chris Fox
I'm not positive but I believe it goes - Jourdan Lewis, Dymonte Thomas, Derrick Greene, Jake Butt, and Chris Fox from left to right.
"What" ain't no country I ever heard of. They speak English in What?
So if I take a picture with Kate Upton does that mean she's my girlfriend?
A + B = C
These days it's even easier. Just photoshop her into one of your pictures.
Bonus: you could add Lloyd Brady and Touchdown Morris though TM might be a it much.
Here's hoping for a bright future. This team does try hard and I will continue to support them.
I'll take it as a positive sign until I see him posing for pics with Auburn or Tennessee commits.
