TomVH just retweeted a Florida writer that said George Campbell will be at Michigan's BBQ this weekend, and not at Florida's Friday Night Lights event.
Commence the pants party.
omg omg omg.
Remember to breathe, people.
So huge. Even if he doesn't end up picking Michigan. The exposure and family atomosphere is awesome. Nothing like hanging out at the Big House on a nice summer afternoon eating BBQ.
this is the football barbeque, not the physics barbeque
If I was 17 and invited to Michigan Stadium for BBQ I would consider it pretty awesome. I'm not sure about you.
I'm 39, and I would consider it pretty awesome to be invited to the Big House for the BBQ.
Yeah no shit. This guy gets it.
Someone certainly doesn't get it
Physics:atomosphere::Football:atmosphere... I'm just guessing here.
I drank a very good beer...
Well in physics we.... we talk about physics. Properties of physics.
That sounds a lot more like a club to me...
It's sort of social...demented and sad, but social. Right?
Academic clubs aren't the same as other kinds of clubs.
Without lamps there wouldn't be any light.
Just to keep people excited - Michigan has had zero consensus 5* football players sign their LOI since the Carr regime. (Green was a 4* to 247) We have a commitment from Peppers and strong interest from Hand, Fournette, and Campbell, as well as possible interest from Juju Smith. Puts things into perspective...
(Will?) ... was actually ranked 2nd in his class, behind Roh - another 4* in the 247 Composite.
i understand that. but you lumped him in with Hand and Fournette? I do not understand. Thanks for moderating my comment though.
George, not Will.
I didn't moderate your comment. But I'm still confused as to what point you are trying to make.
getting Will and George Campbell confused in a post about George Campbell? Not to mention the post you were replying to had a list of current recruiting prospects along with Campbell's name.
What do those names have in common with George Campbell's name? Now think what those names have in common with Will Campbell's name. Not one of these things is doing its own thing. Not one of these things is on its own.
Bottles the mind.
I disagree, as I thought that poster meant Will Campbell as well. The post above said we haven't had any consensus 5 stars since the Carr regime, and I thought that poster was suggesting Will Campbell contradicted that statement.
This is why one word posts are usually a bad idea.
We have a commitment from Peppers and strong interest from Hand, Fournette, and Campbell, as well as possible interest from Juju Smith.
1 of those is a verbal and the other four are recruits. Just not seeing how that one gets confused with a former player.
"we never had a 5*...."
I thought he was saying will Campbell was a 5* as well, Bc, I actually thought he was a 5*.
Now I see what you're getting at. That one word "campbell?" reply. Your interpretation makes sense till you read the guy's next reply where he gets testy and asks why (Will) Campbell got lumped in with Hand and Fournette. That's where I'm coming from.
I was following on my phone so that probably helps add to the confusion... but as the poster below indicates, what does "Campbell" signify then?
I still have no idea what he did mean in referring to George Campbell.
Who, the fuck, is on first.
I don't know.
Is not a fuck.
Damn, too late. REDUNDANT on the George Will photo embed.
Three out of four rating services is a consensus.... 4 for 4 = unanimity.
As Casey Stengel used to say: "You could look it up!"
Just for perspective, there haven't been many consensus 5 stars to go around since the Carr era. Getting 4+ competing opinion sites to agree on something is pretty rare, lol. So yeah, Fournette and Campbell are good enough to do that then they're pretty special talents.
there seems to be a lot of confusion on this site as to what constitutes a consensus and what is unanimity. As a guy who has to sit on way too many committee's for work I can say there is a distinct difference between the two as you can reach a consensus without being unanimous.
Unanimous means everyone agree with whatever is on the table while consensus essentiqlly means that "that might not be my first choice, or even my second or third...but I can live with that since everyone else is in agreement."
Now it could be that the recruiting services have no real grasp of what consensus means so it has just spread to this site by people using the term the way the recruiting sites do, but unless these sites actually confer with one another and come to a consensus I think the term is being misused.
I think what they should do is simply use the term unanimous as it leaves far less room for confusion as to how these recruiting sites are coming to this consensus.
Hoke can't BBQ.
This meme is getting tired, it's solidly in the rearview mirror by now
Sounds like maybe I'm not missing much.
For the hype he got I would've thought Henson was a consensus 5*. Glad to see some elite southern talent considering us.
He came out of HS before those sites started publishing rankings to the public.
I'm a little young to remember recruiting back then but do you- or anyone for that matter- like not really knowing recruits, minus all of the hoopla of recruiting websites, ranking, stars etc. ?
since the Carr regime ended, not since it began.
So the 2014 #1 player and potential 2015 #1 player will both be in attendance. This is good right?
Not sure where Erik Sweson (2016) falls, but he'll be in attendance and I think he's thought of as a potential 5* in 2016. No idea of he's anywhere close to #1 material
I guess the bbq accounts for most of the hotels full and the prices jacked to football season levels. Nice to see the local business community preparing all the potential familes to a real football weekend.
As "The Mayor" of Ann Arbor, George Campbell is merely fulfilling his civic duty. We shouldn't get too excited over his visit.
I remember someone doing an ultimate BBQ list of recruits in past years. Someone willing to do one this year?
Magnus usually puts one together at Touch The Banner
Here is the list for the 2013 BBQ from Touch The Banner (see link below). I believe our own Aquaman has the same or similar stuff over at 247Sports.
The post is from the 18th, so it is a few days old now, but it is the most recent update that I saw anyway.
Here is a link to the visitors provided by Magnus...
Got beat to it :(

Sterling Jenkins is so big, he occupies two classes. Of his total 596 pounds, 300 is in the 2015 class and 296 in the 2016 class.
Thought about editing the original post, but then your reply won't make sense, and can't ruin a joke in good conscience
BTW that mistake was mine not Scout's... It's what happens when you're 3 high balls in, chased with vicodin on a Tuesday morning. Welp, back to operating the heavy machinery near the orphanage...
I think you should go ahead and try to edit it...
All this talk of BBQ is making me hungry.
Hope he's a better mayor than Kwame
I have no idea who this George Campbell is, all I care about is finding out why Mason Cole chose Michigan instead of State.
I've been outof the loop for a bit but are we still sitting good with Hand?
if you've been out of the loop for awhile, then you are probably good with hand.
This episode was just on WGN last week. Good times.
JB took a page from Hoke's book in referencing "Ohio" ... shouldn't Hoke now do the same and have subs instead of BBQ?
They had rib tips, it was crazy!
Drake harris is in the house.
If we nab gc and b cole, it will be like the good ol days at wr again. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Don't think about it, don't think about it, don't think about it!
Yo Yo, right about now Compton's in the house. Does GC=AC?? Hell no, but one can dream. Hope he proves me and everyone else wrong. In the meantime....Compton is in the house my friends.
Helps that we have Ferns, Speight, Drake and possibly Jabrill there. Those are our player-recruiters.
hope he enjoys his time in A2. nice to have all these great recruits checking UM out.
