Don't shoot the messenger, by Rivals posted some quotes from Fournette's uncle stating in no uncertain terms that he will not be in AA this weekend. It's paywalled, so no link.Edit: it's happening. Sorry brah.
Fournette Visit Happening
Sam Webb tweeted it is still on
Kyle Bogy talked with the kids dad at 3:45 today and they are departing at 5pm central.
watch me - I'll do it
I feel like it is the responsibility of the OP to update when information like this comes out or is brought to his/her attention. These drive-by thread topics are getting kind of old. It doesn't make sense for the comments to be more informative than the original post. If you are about to get on a plane to Australia and have no internet access for the next 22 hours then I can kind of understand, but in other circumstances it seems silly for the post to just sit there unaltered.
I've flown from Michigan to Australia and back - twice - and there are still plenty of opportunities to get back on that internet and fix your damn rumor posts when new info surfaces. Wifi at the LAX layover, or at the very least you can use your smart phone's network. Let's say you're on that trans-Pacific flight ... you can still pay for internet, and if there's anything worth using expensive 32000 foot internet for, it's the fellow Michigan faithful you've screwed over with your irresponsible initial post AM I RIGHT???
Lo siento. Emocional.
FWIW, Tim Sullivan said he will update once he speaks to Fournette's mother.
There has been no new updates.
Not by Rivals, but there have been reports from other services that contradict this report, so it is worth including this in the post.
If true, it's not a HUGE surprise.
That does not make me feel confident!
What if I told you I hadn't seen Evil Dead yet?
If you're talking about the original, I'd say you should move back to Mother Russia. If you're talking about the one that came out this year, I'd get it.
To me it would mean you're a liar
Right. But let's just say that I hadn't seen it. And I said, "I haven't seen Evil Dead II yet." What would you think?
But to answer your question, using the word yet implies (at least to me) that you are planning on doing so.
I just want to say that this was a wonderful post and I'm saddened by the number of people who appear not to get High Fidelity references.
I hope you're right. Again, just conveying a message, not pretending to have any knowledge outside of what I read.
Please don't be true. Please don't be true!!!!
To piggyback a bit off LSA's comment earlier, the two big things to remember when posting paywalled content is 1) source it and 2) leave it some value. Third thing to remember is just to do it in moderation. Further info to be found here:
OK, sorry. I thought I did source it by saying it was from Rivals. My bad. Sorry Rivals.
That's probably fine for not causing a problem for the site but I'd prefer being overly safe, especially when it's not a big burden.
Paywalled doesn't mean you can't link it. It just means you can't wholesale copy/paste the content. So link away (for those with Rivals subscriptions).
Give the link for those who have Rivals, and for someone who might say "this kind of info is interesting to me, I'll consider getting a subscription". At least that's what it seems the intent of the policy here is.
Quick, to his twitter page!
Don't shoot the...BANG!
What was that you were saying?
Per Steve Lorenz, it is apparently due to a problem "any recruit would cancel a visit for". However, Lorenz has not confirmed. Nonetheless, most think the visit is indeed off. Just important to note that the issue is allegedly out of Fournette's control.
Very, very anti-climatic.
I'm guessing if its something like that it is a family emergency.
So we're no longer a lock for Fournette?
I'm holding steady on my Raback. It's just much less likely that he will commit to Michigan this weekend.
It's no problem. I'll just up his points to 700 with Kitchen Sink. Between that and the +330 bonus, we'll be fine. No pipeline though.
You would think that would be good enough, but then you see LSU has that crucial last visit as well as the pipeline state and realize you're boned.
Who said that?
The M Block @TheMBlock: After receiving conflicting reports, Fourmette IS set to fly into Detroit Metro tonight per @KyleBogie
Wow, the MBlock with the dark horse credibility win (hopefully).
If a and b are both correct, then:
Leonard Fournette is set to visit Michigan, even after an unknown event that most recruits would cancel their visits for happened. That just speaks to the power of my Rabacking. I hope it's nothing bad on his side.
should have a welcoming party waiting for him at DTW. Or if you're not a creep but are at DTW tonight, let us know if you see him.
I am flying from Dallas to Detroit tonight, I get in at 11:15. I will let you guys know if I see him.
Time for flight tracker!
Dominoes bird...that would look suspicious.
.. but maybe someone can hack into the flight manifests and confirm that his family boarded the plane
Reminds me of when we were doing our coaching search. "OMG THE PLANE IS IN PALO ALTO WE ARE HIRING JIM HARBAUGH"
#1 ranked recruits don't have flight manifests, they have flight manifestos.
I demand more leg room! Since when do I have to pay for peanuts?! This movie selection is poor and the screen's color correction is off!
*I assume a series of declarations can be treated as a manifesto.
whichever site is correct about the visit is Michigan Pay Site #1? :)
Lorenz says that report that he's flying out is old, and that there still may be an issue that stops him from coming tonight.
What is the issue here?
The issue with Fournette? He never allows a defender to tackle him. Like, never. It's unfair to the rest of the players.
