Can we have Ace call up recruits and ask them what they're wearing?
But it could come off in completely the wrong way. It could possibly cost Ace his job, and he could be charged with soliciting.
I'm pretty sure Ace would've found this funny.
For the record, your photo with Gainsborough's Blue Boy is classic. I wish I thought of that.
hah, hah, hah, he said "Buttall".
He is having a good time with this, and good for him. I just hope all the little signs are pointing in the right direction.
I think this kid Forrest Christman deserves a bid based on his name and the fact that he goes to Slippery Rock High School.
I bet he wears a Stanford one tomorrow or something. I am holding out hope, but I have a bad feeling he is going Stanford. Great kid who would fit in well at either school.
I share your concerns, but I take solace in the fact that Stanford is probably on the way down after Luck leaves, while UM has a stable of top-notch kids coming in and a clear uptick. Smart kids want to win, and the difference in UM vs. Stanford education isn't enough to basically promise yourself 2-3 lean years as the Cardinals regroup.
I wouldn't be surprised if he has shirts from all of the schools he's considering or that he's visited.
didn't come with back packs or bagels with spread.
...not sure that is a great sign. Or a bad one for that matter.
For the record, I am wearing a Montana Griz shirt today and am about to buy a ski pass in Whitefish, MT.
Derp. Who the heck cares if he enjoys the game? If I were a recruit I'd mess with nosy fans so much. He ends up where he ends up. It's not like he's committing somewhere, taking someone else's spot, and then dropping out on signing day. Let the kid have his fun and enjoy the process.
Garnett has been all class and possibly one of my favorite recruits of the last 10 years. If you get a chance, you should listen to his interview on Washington sports radio where he explains how he could turn down the home school where his dad was a star.
I really think he is going to go Stanford unfortunately though. Special kid in the mold of players like Dhani Jones, Zoltan Mesko, Shane Battier, and Andrew Luck.
I'm just going on what the insiders say. TomVH continues to say Michigan has a "very good chance" and won't guarantee it, but repeatedly makes us the leader, Eric Magnuson is good friends with him and continues to say we lead, and Garnett is quoted as saying he hates Ohio. None of the signs from insiders point to him favoring Stanford or another school. I don't want to get my hopes up, but Michigan seems to still be the leader.
Lived in Whitefish for 3 winters. Now I teach snowboarding at Bridger Bowl. Sweet powder day today. Sour cream fries at the Bulldog. That is all.
He will be blue soon, no sense in wearing a michigan shirt if you are not supporting them. I know people are gonna respond to this by saying he's not in the bag yet and he could be trying to mess with people. His interviews are sincere and loves the coaches and Erik Mag. Its not like michigan sucks academically. I know Stanford is better academically and football is second to schooling for Garnett. But Dammit THIS IS MICHIGAN FERGODSAKES and he will be in a winged helmet next year!
OMG he is wearing matching underwear!!!!!!!!
HE'S WEARING BLUE SOCKS!!!!!! OMG!!!
But in all seriousness I reallllllly hope he does come to the good side
My friends girlfriends brothers friend knows someone thats good friends with him and in fact he is wearing matching socks and boxers, therefore he is blue
Yeah, some of the tweets people post are worthless but this isn't one of those tweets. It's a good sign and I do think that he will end up at Michigan.
Pryor wore a Michigan hoodie to the army game when he was in high school, remember where he went, this means nothing
Terrelle Pryor was also a self-involved asshat. So there's that.
He said Asshat...
Didn't he have a buckeye leaf on his hat foe that game?
Dunn is driving a new Escalade to the game. He is staying with ohio after all. Flip!
Lets wait and see if he does wear the other school's gear.
I am very confident he'll go blue .... relax people.
Erik Magnuson did an interview for us over at Tremendous and Erik said that from talking to Garnett, he thinks Michigan's chances of landing him are very high. The interview isn't up yet, but I talked about it in yesterdays a few minor recruiting notes.
And he knows it, and he's doing his best to recruit JG.
What if he wears a sweatervest tomorrow? Does that mean he's leaning towards Akron?
A visor would be South Carolina or Oklahoma.
Flood pants would have been Penn State a few months ago.
White Hat = LSU
No jacket in freezing weather? Michigan!
What exaxtly was Garnett wearing?
in the title lol
if he's wearing an orange jumpsuit, he's going to state.
lets just rejoice that a top tier recruit is sporting michigan gear at the UA game.. hopefully it means more than that, but we will see in a few days.
Commence internet freak out
There isn't anything to freak out about.
There are those who don't want to get their hopes up, and there are those who feel very confident Garnett will GO BLUE!
Its not as big of a deal as it may seem. I know when I was looking at schools and I would visit I would get a shirt and then wear it... Didn't mean it was my favorite place, matter of fact I still wear a shirt from a place that I hated when I visited.
People don't like to get their hopes up.
I just think - in the end - he'll pick Michigan.
Debbie Downer is here, but every time I feel like a HS kid is talking a lot about one school or doing things like wearing a t-shirt wear he knows there is going to be press/attention...I feel like the majority of the time they end up committing to the other school to add that "shock factor."
He's that type of guy. Seems more mature than that
He is interviewed later today and names Michigan as his current leader. Saying that playing in front of a 100,000 + would be hard to turn down. That says way more than a T-shirt. Happy New Years bros, be safe tonight.
He is going blue. I just went through my Tarot cards and the two of cups came up which is an obvious sign he is going blue.
Just curious but when are all of the high school all-star games?
Just in case nobody pointed it out he was wearing a stanford shirt later in the day, I think we have as good a shot as anybody but he is just messing with people now.
