"It was a privilege," Gardner said Monday night at the Ufer Quarterback Club Banquet in Ann Arbor. "I don't think people understand how much of a privilege it was to not only be a quarterback at Michigan, but just to be a part of this university whether you're a student-athlete or not," "And I knew that as a sophomore in high school. I knew this was a special place."
Derrick Green Sets Decision Date
This is a pretty good sign for the good guys, IMO.
Cool - 26 is my lucky number, so I think we're good here.
that means absolutely nothing!
(still think/hope DG goes blue)
So this means no more Derrick Green posts until Jan 26, right guys? guys?
You left off an "a". Maybe you were just catching your breath.
You wouldn't like to know what color shirt he's wearing on the 20th. I call a bluff!
I double post without fail on this phone ... looks like I already broke my own "no DG posts" prediction.
This is unfortunate for you.
Damn, you beat me.
Anymore visits before then?
Seems odd to set a date that far out without a reason, like, "I'll be back from such and such visit on 'x' day, so I should be able to make my decision by day 'y'." Then again, 18 y/o minds and recruiting in general seems odd to me.
I hear no more visits for Green
26 is my unlucky number.
26 is neither my lucky nor my unlucky number.
My birthday. Now I really hope its a great day!
I would have guessed March 3rd
My un-birthday, but I still hope its a great day
A very merry unbirthday to you!
Say who he is going to pick on the 26th?
How do we know this isn't just legilimency?
Don't you read? Geesh. http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Legilimency.
identify the post as Derrick Green #136.
What about Devin Gardner (the "original" DG)?
whether I am elated or angry. Time TBD but it should be about 10 seconds after Derrick Greens announcement
4:00:10 then I imagine?
you have to allow for appropriate time to be introduced, thank coaches and your parents, and then time rummaging around to find the correct hat so I'd say it's more likely to be 4:02:10
Staff can devote 90% of energy to him now that LM3 and Laquon are clearly gone. Closing with DD, Delano, Hunt and DG will make this a great foundation class.
The staff can then focus on adding some pure playmakers (CB, WR, RB, FS) in 2014 along with more depth across the board.
College football is not like college football video games, FYI. I'm very sure the staff have many other things to do.
I don't play video games. I have been a GA thru 2 recruiting cycles - January is 90% or thereabouts on recruiting/HS evals focus for everyone but S&C staff.
I take back my comment then. Do staff get to take a little time off after NSD?
"here and there" before spring football planning goes into overdrive and then a little more in the 12 or so weeks before late July.
The changes in NCAA rules, texting, earlier commits, 7-on-7 explosion - the coaches are consumed with recruiting and hardly ever unplug. I would guess the UM staff works 80+ hours every week with home time & vacation regularly interrupted with calls/texts/etc.
The post on 247 was just edited to include 4 PM as the announcement time as well (per Green's Facebook apparently) so there is this as well. Looks like I shall be tuning out at work early that day to be in the accompanying announcement thread.
You'll be glad to find out then that Jan.26 is a Saturday
Unless he works Saturdays.
If Green turns us down, will that create more individual posts and comments than if he commits, or will it be the opposite?
The exact same. If he commits it will be about how awesome he is and who he will be like (a-train) and how Hoke can close. If he doesn't commit posts will be about how D. Smith looked better anyway and why Hoke can't close.
Either way, I will have plenty of posts to read to kill time!
Hoke can't close posts
ABC. A, always; B, be; C, closing. ALWAYS BE CLOSING!
If he turns down. If it's anything like everyone else who has committed it will be news for about 3 days and the greed of who's next will kick in.
Green shows up in a Michigan hat, ready to pick Michigan......only to take off his shirt, reveal an Ohio jersey and proceed to clock Brady Hoke with a steel chair. If that chain of events was to transpire, I'm pretty sure this site would crash and I would never watch college football again. Oh yeah, I suppose Green would have to be arrested for assault too.
Ummmmm....I think I need to stop talking. Maybe I should sit these next couple plays out.
record would definitely make him a Buckeye.
He seems a little too grounded for Option 3. Go Blue.
Well, I won't be surprised if I have lots of trouble accessing this site on the 26th.
