What are our chances?
That's not what he said. He said that FSU "might" hold the tie-breaker.
Mike Farrell is the one who broke this story and clearly has an in with the family. He has maintained FSU all along, and still now he is predicting FSU. I am trying to stay optimistic, but I think we should all be preparing for the worst here. I don't think he would put this out there unless he was certain especially given the amount of grief Michigan fans have given him. I think the only reason he hasn't made his prediction more defiinitive is to give Levenberry his moment on Tuesday.
I wish people would think I had special powers when I say things.
"MGoBlog Mod just said that Schlereth sucks. Must be true"
He is going to Michigan for sure then.
Does this ever get old?
but Leeeeeroy still cracks me up every time.
are you? I'm 47 and I knew that was WOW.
Edit: I've seen this at least a dozen times and it still cracks me up. Especially when, in the midst of the chaos and carnage he unleashes with his impetuous charge into the fray, his teammate yells "God damn it Leroy".
That was amazing.
This is precisely why I try to post this video whenever it fits into a thread. Everyone should see this at least 1,000 times.
I don't...it's just...I mean...and then they...that was real? I have no words for how awesome that was
If Farrell broke the news, I'm guessing FSU.
I wouldn't say that's true. The family likes to deal with only a single guy at each of the major recruiting sites, they won't even talk to Tom VH. So Farrell just happens to be the guy they talk to at Rivals so naturally he would be the one they tell such information to.
you are right, but farrell was the first on twitter. You know if he goes to FSU, the smuggness will never end.
In his last tweet, Farrell indicates that he does not know. He says that Michigan made up ground, but he thinks FSU in a squeaker . . .
Make of that what you will
because he got screwed in the rankings by ESPN and Scout. And don't get into an argument with me about this, Magnus
I think it was 247 that screwed him when they did a major update. Scout has him at 80th nationally, which is respectable.
He's all over the place. Rivals has him at #15, Scout has him at #80, 247 has him at #235, and ESPN has him as an unranked 4-star.
Huh. He spent a lot of time at FSU, but was more recently at UM (he was here for the spring game, right?). I guess this is good for us?
Is it possible Hoke told him that he needed to decide soon or Hoke would chase other LB prospects?
Doubtful as I don't see Hoke pressuring someone to commit. I also remember the discussion that it seemed that Hoke told Levenberry a spot would be saved for him but we were done recruiting other linebackers.
I don't see this as pressuring someone. Hoke is just being honest with him if he tells him "we really like you, but we're only taking one more LB and can't risk missing out on all of them, so the next to commit gets the spot."
Totally agreed that it would't be pressuring him, but I don't think that's what Hoke is saying in the first place.
As the poster above mentions, we would only take another LB if it was Levenberry. If he doesn't commit, we're done pursuing LBs as we have more pressing needs.
But do we know that? I know that's been reported to be the case, but it's not like we heard Hoke say it, and even if it was once the case, those things tend to change. Maybe the coaches have come across another LB or two that they like as much as EJ? Maybe they feel there will be more scholarships, and they'd like to take a 3rd LB no matter what.
This stuff is very fluid, and not all of the "facts" that get reported are 100% true.
Yeah that's a good point, my "facts" are not so much facts, just the feel I've been getting from reading the exact same sources as you.
The one thing that convinces me though is that Dorian Daniels and Anzalone were told to move on. Those are high caliber guys that we would have been lucky to have in any other year where LB wasn't so stocked.
Let's be honest here. You don't think Hoke pressures these kids to commit simply because he is our coach. He has strung together two amazing recruiting classes. Let's not pretend he doesn't know how to lean a little.
That's not a bad trait for a coach, especially one that seems to be so honestly caring about his players. He's still a head coach though, and even though he coaches at Michigan, his poop does not smell like roses nor does it shimmer like gold...
You have ruined my Friday. Next you'll be telling me the Easter Bunny isn't real.
Apparently several people were on this. Three posts and I was in the middle of creating a fourth haha. Here's hoping we land him.
I created this comment to say that I was going to post on this topic, but other people beat me to it. Awesome.
Well, he did say his visit was a 10 out of 10, so it's not like we're out of it, but he did just spend a week in Tallahasee.
Think about it. Why would he be announcing this early for FSU? Their class isn't filling up. It's got to be Michigan.
Goood point hope ur right
Would it really have killed you to say "you're"?
I upvote IORIGifs on sight.
This IS what technology was meant to be!
Didn't comment when I saw this monstrosity last night, but I was literally awakened at 3 a.m. with night terrors which could only have been the result of the many minutes I spent staring at this little abomination.
There are occasions when one is literally terrified by what they see on the internet---this is one of them.
Bro that's how we write here in Tennessee
I am surprised people know how to write at all in Tennessee. So with this stunning revelation I say ur alright.
I live in Nashville and not everyone is too lazy to include the extra three letters and the obligatory apostrophe. Just because you choose to look uneducated, don't group the rest of us in with you.
now you truly belong on mgoblog. Welcome to the gang!
Although FSU already has two LB's... so they may be filling up at LB...
