We could USE SOME......
this may be of some local interest
We could USE SOME......
...because there hasn't been any good news for Michigan fans lately?
getting James Ross and all the other good commits we have so far was bad news lol
We could all always use some good news
Started off the week pretty well but kinda went downhill from there with The Butterfly leaving the basketball program, Burlon and Mel Pearson leaving hockey and Daryl getting suspended this morning. Could use a little pick up.
BTW... isn't the league championship for Lacrosse today out in Saline?
Good news is like money..you can never have enough.. and the more you get the more you want ... MOAR !!!
Your description of good news/money also works for heroin? So is good news really good?
If you would ask a heroin addict then YES ... MOAR heroin is wanted by a heroin addict .. MOAR money is wanted by just about everyone..MOAR good news is wanted by all UM fans
Already on the FHH Trio Visit blog. But thanks.
How did this get negged?
My guess is we pick up Starryl Donum, who will fill in nicely while our other WR is suspended.
Well in that case I'd take a Wyrone Theatly, a Lake Jong, and a Wharles Coodson please!
Not sure why, but "Lake Jong" sounds like an adult film star's name.
Jake Long kind of does too. Hmmm...back-up career path if things don't go well with the Fins.
Things seem to be going okay for him with the Fins.
As a Dolphins fan it makes me so happy to be able to agree with that. Now Henne just has to prove he is the guy, which I think he can.
... or a manmade lake in North Korea.
Sounds like North Korean Royalty to me...
Or the distant relative of an egomanaical North Korean dictator.
That may be more difficult to pronounce than the correct spelling. It had to be difficult for the student section to start cheers for him...
Haha. Because of those reasons, they called him Tim.
Hopefully that other receiver isn't "Ocatavious Modoms"
Hello: Mario Ojemudia hopefully?
Unless burbridge got offered... then Hello: Aaron Burbridge as well.
The magic happens in pairs.
it's mario then that will only help us with Aaron. The kid has a whole year to get things right. He has a norte shame offer so they must think he can get it done to. Also i have heard he is a bigger,faster Mario Manningham,i take that anyday. GO BLUE!!!
Can we have a trio maybe? Brionte Dunn, Mario O, and Devin Burbridge. Sounds good to me!
Second, Dunn is waiting for the investigation to play out in Columbus, so maybe we should sit back and wait as well...
Nothing will happen till that's over.
Easy there buddy. Just a little fun speculation. Mixed up Burbridge's first name with Funchess's.
Just thought I'd point out the obvious.
to play out? The longer this goes the more the NCAA will find. OSU will be hit hard. Bank it.
The suspenes is killing me
Man this is taking tooooo long.... I'm paralyzed to the computer now!
Turns out all our committs are 5 star recruits on rivals, hopefully thats the good news.
Trieu works for scout, so...
Is Godin announcing this weekend?
if he hasn't pushed it back yet
Pretty sure given all our clues, that he is the silent commit. I think Thompson is the one exploring his options and pushing his date back.
11th or 12th, can't remember which.
Matt Godin is announcing on May 12 (Final Three - Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin)
If your into twitter you can follow him @mattgodin1
Ron Thompson originally claimed he was announcing on May 11...From what i've read i'm starting to think that isn't going to happen.
Hope this helps...Go Blue!
Very much so, Thank You
So next week sometime, I'd guess.
He is announcing next week twoards the end of the week. I go to his school
Today the Freep, FWIW, says we have a full 25 recruiting slots this year. Is that correct? I thought it's more like 20, no?
I don't understand where the Freep is getting those numbers, but unless they're counting on more attrition that is just flat out wrong.
The Detroit Free Press: Where Facts Go To Die.
That should be in MgoBlog 101. Freep = poop. Have fun with that mgomathematicians.
Freep < Poop
Poop serves a valuable function.
If I put poop on the gardens, things grow. If I put the Freep on the gardens, things get bored to tears with vapid reporting.
it makes good toilet paper... and kindling
EDIT: meant as a reply to Zone Left
This is as bad as when someone starts to say something. Then they stop and say never mind. They have your attention and now all you can think about is what they were going to say. I konda feel that way now waiting to find out what Trieu is on about.
Man Trieu is really making us wait for this one. I am trying to not go too far, but it's so hard.
That's what he said?
Isn't it obvious that Ojemudia is committing? Theres no other explanation. Enjoy your Saturday.
That's gotta be part of it, but what if there's more!?
but is it you that makes all the Hello posts or is that someone else
Haha, nope. I believe that's Tim.
i didnt know if it was you or tim
I post a fair amount, but you'll quickly learn that I rarely say anything of substance and have no insider connections whatsoever :).
someone like me to post a ton of stuff but still have no true connections like Tom has?
Who's the other? Our commits come in pairs.
Dear Mr. Allen Trieu,
Can you please clue us in on what you know, so we can stop stalking your profile for a couple hours....
I keep getting error messages saying twitter is over its capacity.. lol
big thangs poppin?
Pharaoh Brown from Lyndhurst Brush.
Edit: Someone already posted. Nevermind.
Did his mummy come on the trip with him? /rimshot
Not to be that guy, but this is the second time today you have posted premium site information over here. Unless the rules have changed I'm pretty sure this is frowned upon on this site. In this case it doesn't sound like the recruit wants much public yet also....
I always thought it was posting things verbatim from premium sites that was frowned upon
All I've posted falls in this category
You might as well relate the gist of some paywalled content. It'll come out anyway.
It sounds like a kid committed and they're holding off on releasing it until later, perhaps he wants to talk to his parents before it goes public. But again, it's Scout so who the hell knows for sure.
Pharaoh Brown. Surprise Visitor! Stay tuned.
Well Pharaoh Brown is a DE from Ohio and Mario Ojemudia is a DE from Michigan, yes this will work. Here is to hoping that the commits in pairs continue!
I dont have a Scount account. What are their reactions and who is the surprise visitor!?
I think all he was referring to was the trio's reaction to their visit. Or am I wrong?
I am kinda disappointed if that's all it was. He had us at the edge of our seats thinking someone was going to commit... :( Oh, well another day..
I don't think he would phrase it like that if that's all it was...
Since apparently Ross joined them, the only person I could think of that could be a surprise visitor that is friends with the trio, is Ross's buddy Terry Richardson, just speculating though.
to stay tuned to? Should we be expecting a commit? Or two?
Happy Days everybody.
I pay for ESPN Insider and Rivals, but not Scout...
That's what these people like to do is fucking tease us
My buddy has a scout membership, but I can't get a hold of him!!
There is no information on Scout, at least as of this post, that wasn't mentioned in this thread.
"...Michigan is doing very well with both of them." "Both reported having very positive visits." A comment after talking with Burbridge and Ojemudia this afternoon after their visits. No mention of a commit. "Full report to follow" on their site.
What a fucking tease! That's all we get?
When Trieu tweets "don't go far" michigan fans that should damn well mean a commit! It may still be though and we have to be patient until maybe family is contacted, etc. Who knows. If we weren't all so addicted to M football and recruiting at this time of year we wouldn't have this problem.
lol.. very true its like 70 and sunny outside and I was supposed to be somewhere by now but I'm still here. Which in a sense is kinda sad oh well.. Love them Blue
Pharaoh committed. Theres talk about someone needing to talk with their parents before letting reporters announce the commitment. Mario Ojemudia was already close to committing so you wouldn't expect a check-back with the folks at this juncture. I'm guessing D'Antonio delayed Mario's commitment for now. Of course, if Burbridge were a commitment (highly unlikely), then little bro will freak out.
Agree. MSU blogs consider Burbridge practically a lock.
One of the Spartans posted that they would have to "get the pitchforks out" if they lost all three to UM. Sounds like we've got two, and the third is coming around to the idea.
Hasn't Tom said before don't get caught up in those? I thought he said Burbridge wasn't as much of a lock as everyone makes him out to be?
At this point it doesnt sound like its the commitment of either Burbridge or MO. PLLLLEEEAAASSSEEE be Pharoh Brown!!! Or at least PLLLEEEEAAAASSSEEE be a commit!!
Not to be a downer but Pharoh Brown really doesn't excite me. Isn't he like 40ish in the DE rankings on Scout? I know Mario and especially Wormley are way higher than that.
EDIT: forgot that Ojemudia (sp?) is rated as a DT in the teens somewhere
Not every top 10 player at their position is going to choose Michigan right now-especially the way we have played the last few years. How does the chance to develop a kid that is 6-6 220 not sound good. Especially with offers from Neb and UNC who have been doing pretty well with their analysis lately.
Wormley is the star of this position for the 2012 class that we are targetting....
With that being said, you should be excited about Brown, he's 6'6 - 220 lbs and will be a redshirt in his Freshmen year so you can bump that weight up about 15-20 lbs.
He holds offers from: Arizona State, Boston College, Cincinncati, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia.
Who are we to say which one will be better between Brown and Mario...Flip a coin. As long as Wormley is a part of the class, i'll glady take either Brown or Mario.
Excited to see how this class continues to fill out...Go Blue!
FWIW rivals also shows an offer from ND
With him and LEVITICUS PAYNE on defense there would be much to fear across the land
Consider me informed now. I guess you have to look at his potential based on his size and age. I didn't realize he had all those offers either. Sounds like a guy who can contribute after a few years on campus.
instate DE Mario Ojemudia just told me he has committed to#Michigan.
Ojemudia said he decided last night that he would commit. He said once he got home from the visit everyone knew, so he came public with it
Awesome to have another Mario on board. When he gets a sack, the MMB should play the Super Mario theme.
i have seen several recruiting articles where pharaoh talks about wanting to go somewhere where he can play tight end even though he plays quarterback on offense for his high school team? I assume that we are recruiting him as a defensive end since we already have two or possibly three tight ends committed. Does anyone know what our chances are for recruiting him as a defensive player, or if we are recruiting him at another position? I know he has said he wants to play offense but with his measurables (6'6"-6'7") he could be a great defensive end product...imo
funny tweet from chris barnett: "devin, royce, james, kaleb....im at 4... more to come"
