Hey pal come to Michigan with me so we can have a fun and exciting time, while we further our education and win championships for the maize and blue faithful.
Dang it. I thought he was saying that he was in a lot of pain and he wanted to know if anyone could help him. I guess I don't speak jive.
Sounds like Laquon's coming here after all and Dawson already knows what classes he's going to take next year
At least that's what I think he's saying
My first thought when reading this was when did Utah get in the picture. Tennessee makes a lot more sense. Honestly on second thought I would rather go to Utah.
Shut up hova
Whateva... It's tha Rock
If Dawson or every lineman is in his ear or whether UT has zero lineman, this choice is going to lean on where his mother wants him to be, this is the reason why he hasn't committed. Hoke has had the full court press on him since July. Hoke doesn't have to convince Derrick, he's gotta make his family feel comfortable...this of course is all through the grapevine.
It means, come on down Mr. Green.
Yea. I'm sure everyone else is wrong and you're right.
Well to be fair he DID watch Green's film........
1) You're new here
2) Armchair talent scouting
3) Poor grammar
If you don't like how the board works, feel free to leave.
EDIT: 4) bitching about being negged
Mods? Please don't let this fly.
Give the guy a break. Just because he's new doesn't mean he can't voice his opinion. Lots of us say what we think about recruits, and none of us are pro scouts. He said it was his opinion, and he's entitled to that.
I've watched both of their films, and I like Smith better, too. He's just as big, less fast, but runs better. I know I don't agree with Rivals. Sue me.
The reason Green is rated higher is because he's faster. You see flashes of it in his tape. But, I really enjoy watching smith run and saying "get off me" over and over again.
You just nailed it. Smith is an exceptional, blue chip back. Top 10 running back. Many, including me, like his film better.
BUT there are 2 main things why Green is ranked higher -
1) ceiling. He may be a slight step down as a power runner compared to Smith, but Green can take it to the house. Tough to teach speed.
2) Green plays against better competition, so adjusting the film to the competition, is Greens film then as impressive? More impressive? I don't know.
No need for the whole rubbing his dick thing was my point. Have an opinion, by all means, but there's no need for that. Can't we all discuss our opinions without acting like we're five? Or using terms I'd expect to find on espn or mlive, but not here.
You guys sure are being super sensitive that this guy doesn't think Green is the #1 back in the country.
edit - Not sure why it shows in response to WolvinLA
This isn't where I parked my car...
Rivals and scout rank Green as a 5 star. Espn has him as a top 50 player and the newer 24/7 has him as a top 150 player. All 4 of these sites offer at least some pros and cons for Green as a running back justifying their ranking of him.
You, as a new poster on this blog, think he is a high 3 star and offer no insightful thoughts on why you think so other than just stating it as your opinion. People are labeling you as a troll not because you aren't sucking Greens dick, but because we think your evaluation of talent sucks...well...you know.
1. You don't need a Harvard education to use high school grammar. Which would be forgivable, if
2. You didn't use phrases like "rub this kid's dick." No one wants to know why you're thinking about rubbing teenage boys dicks.
3. It's not a public blog. Your tax dollars didn't go to it. It's Brian's blog. He set up a system where some (minor) standards can be upheld. If he wanted complete freedom he'd allow anything, not have any voting, and no mods. Some would like that. They can start their own blogs.
4. Complaining about it, particularly as a new guy, is never going to endear people to you or your opinion.
I beleave you fergot a opostrofee after the s in boy to show posetion.
Heaven forbid someone uses poor grammar on a blog.
You forgot, fergodsakes# or #fergodsakes (I guess it goes without saying I'm a twitter noob)
I love how people try to compare these two solely based on film. Did it occur to you that they may be playing different levels of competition?
About your prognosis of Green, I do think Smith will be better than most people think. If fitz cannot return right away next season, smith could be the starter.
Hi Matt Millen.
Free for anyone to use, when computer scouts come out.
He is a great running back with great power and you can think what you want but at the end of the day he has 30 offers all from highly regarded NCAA schools like Alabama and USC! If he were as bad as your calling him he would not hold these offers!
Tulsa? I sure hope what everyone is saying about Green's mom is loving Hoke is true.
Shavodrick Beaver going to Tulsa resulted in Denard Robinson coming to Michigan. That didn't work out so badly for us.
Come to Michigan
All you guys. Would be an absolute
If he picked anywhere else.
Shocker reference! This type of quality interweb entertainment can only be found on MGoBlog.
I'm saying hes all yours, and all I get is flamebait? Come on guys, have some kind of sense of humour.
If we lose out to that tire fire of a program I'm gonna be really bummed.
We can either buy his mother a house close by or pay for her trips to the games. I am sure the NCAA wouldn't mind....problem solved
Or, you can have what's in the box!
It's Gwyneth Paltrow's head.
O-M-G way to ruin it for all of us who haven't seen Se7en yet!
SPOLIER #2: Kevin Spacey is Keyser Söze
oMg way to ruin it for those of us who didn't know that was a se7en reference!
No way. It's Marcellus' Wallace's soul.
Wait... that's in the briefcase. Never mind. Carry on.
Tremendous is saying Derrick Green says these reports aren't true.
Farrell literally just spent 4 days with Green on tour, so I'm sure his source (Derrick Green) is better than the sources of this UT hack
According to Tremendous, Green said that him being down to two is not true. Whether Green is telling the truth or keeping things close as his style, I am going to wait until Green announces to assume anything.
I won't claim in the slightest that I can evaluate film...but there must be something there that leads the recruiting agencies to agree he is a top 5 rb. I realize they can be wrong often but this would be a pretty big miss on their part.
ESPN: 5th RB
Scout: 2nd RB
Rivals: 1st RB
in 2012, (according to rivals)
#1: J. Gray 683 yards
#2: Yeldon 1000 yards
#3 T. Williams 335 yards
#4 m. pender missed season due to injury
#5 T. Gurley 1260 yards
#6 R. Shell 562 yards
At least for that year none of the rivals backs seemed like busts and all contributed positively to their teams, provided they were healthy.
