Maurice Ways is currently on Michigan's campus, and as noted in Thursday Recruiting, Brian has once again offered to eat his hat in defying the possibility of an incredulous event. That event now being the believed forthcoming commitment of one Mr. Ways.
Sure this thread is likely to be short-lived, given his stated preference for Michigan. Add in the recent visit to MSU, with its gray concrete and dull green stadium, Clockwork Orange scoreboards, and I'm-so-repulsed-I'm-reminded-why-I-so-love-Michigan effect on recruits, and a commitment is likely in the offing. But damn it there's a chance. Maybe Ways waits until tomorrow. Maybe Hand, Peppers, McDowell, Marshall, Scott et al are calling so much he can't get through. Maybe Hoke refuses to take any commitments today, because Hoke is an everyman, and like us he's wondered what a man consuming his own hat would look like. Also interesting: what does the hat look like?
Maybe we get to see this idiom played out, just once in our lifetimes. It's nearly 5:00 and the work day over. Dinner awaits.
