to play football, not to play trumpet
Hello: Erik Magnuson
please be true. please be true.
Yes, now this is what i'm talkin' 'bout. Surely this is how Mac Miller felt whilst making this song.
Mi-chi-gan, f*ck yea
to save the ************ Big Ten
Oh yeah! This kid is terrific! Hello and welcome to Michigan!
Tim must have this one written. It's been written on the walls for a week...
As a superstitious person sitting in for Tim, I would be very loath to pre-write a "Hello:" post lest it jinx the Wolverines. However, it would obviously be more efficient to have some ready ahead of time if time allows. Conundrum!
I wonder if Tim ever pre-writes "Hello:" posts for people who surprise us all and commit elsewhere. I'd be mad that I invested the time and effort.
somewhere that this has happened, and Tim sends them to a blog for the school that the recruit ended up going to.
You know he had a "Hello: Demetrius Hart" post ready to go... sigh...
he got to use that one - http://mgoblog.com/content/hello-demetrius-hart
I'm sure there are many many that he didn't get to use though (Kris Frost, Zettel, Watkins, Jefferson)
I had totally forgotten that he actually "committed" to us for a while...
I would love to read some of the "hello" posts that didn't quite make it... Actually, I take that back. Salt in an open wound never feels too great.
I'm sure it has happened quite recently, probably with Wayne Morgan.
Tim's just got to suck it up, dig deep, and give 110%. This is when legendary front-page-post writers are made.
Pairs again! This is uncanny....
Yes! But this pair is going to line-up across from each other at practice for 4-5 years and beat the hell out of one another while making the other better and better until they are both 1st round NFL draft picks with 4 conference championship rings
Sorry --- got a little over-excited there
This must be Holy Shit Friday. Is this what Rebecca Black's been singing about all this time?
Friday, Friday, Getting Commits on Friday
Hoke pointing, Hoke pointing YEAH!!!
as Jersey Shore, Justin Bieber, Nickelback, and etc.
For the sake of everyone here never post them.
Rebecca Black is like 13. If I had a 13-year-old daughter riding around in cars with 16 or 17 year old boys (must be that old since they're driving the car) she'd never leave the house again except with an electronic tether. Am I the only one who thinks like this?
/old man before my time
Funny, I had the same thought when I watched it. Also wondered why she was contemplating which seat to take. It's a 5-seat car with 4 occupants, it's not like there's a lot of options...
Don't forget about the creepy rapper who has to be at least 30 who is hanging out at these parties for 13 year olds. Also he is the guy who wrote this atrocious song.
No you definitely aren't... I have a daughter and if I boy looks at her wrong... She's grounded lol... sad part is she is only one, it only gets worse from here...
I think my ears are bleeding, that song is terrible.
wow. They really do come in pairs.
TO BE A MICHIGAN WOLVERINE.
Jesus as much as I am excited about recent commits can we again tell these people to stop calling us 'Big Blue" i mean my lord...
I have heard it on the radio a couple times and I grind my teeth everytime I hear it.
If you listen very closely, you can hear the entire city of East Lansing collectively pissing their pants.
noise up here in Grand Blanc! Green dudes; I do hope you have enjoyed your victories. Revenge is sweet.
Ahem...PEANUT BUTTA' JELLY TIME!
Boom goes the Hoke recruiting dynamite!
So this is what bliss feels like?
That is the feeling of enlightenment my son. We have all achieved...satori.
If it's starting out with two four-star recruits before the work week ends!
Stop calling us Big Blue...
Kid is a beast though. Really happy to grab him, especially all the way from Cali.
Gotta love a strong Scandinavian name
Erik, my large friend, you are a key component of THE LEGION OF DOOM !
Oh yeah - we've been waiting a while to welcome this young man . . . .
MGOHELLSYEAH! Must have had the bisque.
Let's not go overboard...
on their class ratings for 1 more day. :o)
so is Strobel moving to the OL?
I think that this was posted on the wrong site. Remember Sparty is the school that recruits nationally. In all seriousness though, HUGE pickup!
Who cares about the Big Blue references...after the past couple years I'll take good news where ever I can find it.
Two 4*s today ... on both sides of the line ... This deserves muppets
Michigan isn't doing to bad at this recruiting thing.
Annnnd BOOOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!!!! Welcome Erik
Two more stars? Are you kidding me Brady? I love you.
I must be dreaming.
Funny that the ESPN ratings came out today. With these two guys, we may actually have jumped up a couple spots.
I am starting to love commit fridays...
Happy Days. . .Happy Days everybody
Those throwback jerseys must be really impressive....
and its not even the weekend let the good times keep going.
Damn it feels good to be a gangster.
100% pure Columbian awesome.
of the thorwback jerseys, and they committed anyway. That is the power of this recruiting staff. We may fill this class this weekend.
I have this mental image of Hoke swimming through piles of recruits like Scrooge McDuck swims through all his gold/money
That's a gross image.
Well he does like "touching kids"
Critical Mass...watch it build on itself!
That's what I'm talking about, that's what I'm talking about. Michigan, check; Ohio, check, National recruiting base, check!! This is going to be one sick class. Now lets all hope this team handles it's business come the fall
It's Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!!
What a fabulous day.
Today is totally awesome. I literally looked at my phone after spending a day off fooling around with my wife to find that we just got two huge pick ups. Seriously, today is awesome.
or it didn't happen?
In so many ways. Highest ranked O-Line guy in a long time. Shows Hole & Co can get kids from far away. I could go on for much longer, but the point is obvious.
Gotta love Friday the 10th! This may start the OL landslide of commits with Diamond visiting next week as well.
...just for that, I'm going home and having a whiskey.
is running wild on the west coast now
What a good Friday! Two big 4 star lineman. We just need a couple of receivers, a couple more O-lineman, and a couple DTs and we're all set!
Work is dragging on, plus I have to be back in the morning. Have been in an arguement with my girlfriend all day and I know that I am going to lose it, like always...suddenly though, this day seems pretty damn good.
Two high-caliber commits and even more Brutus Schadenfreude? This is a great day.
What a great day. I just got back from work and saw this good news. Now time to open some brews and enjoy the night. Go Blue!
Could this friday get any better?? I mean 2 recruits in one day... They were right June was going to be a good month for the Maize and Blue Nation. I'm sick as hell with mono but I'm loving this right now.
Big stars are falling. That means it wont be long before day!!!
With 6 four stars??? I was already really excited about this new hire, but it just keeps getting better and better. I love the focus on the big nasties... that is where games are won and lost and Brady is all over it. It might take a few years to get this whole operation up to 5th gear, but it will be fun to watch. We will actually get to see the defense improve from year to year! How about that for a change of pace? Go Blue!!!
What does Magnuson committing to Michigan have to do with IBM? Does IBM own our football program now? When did this happen?!?!?!?
This puts huge pressure on the other o-line recruits to commit before their opportunity passes.
WHATCHA GONNA DO BROTHER! WHATCHA GONNA DO! WHEN HOKEAMANIA RUNS WILD ON YOU!!!!
Really like him. Things are looking rosy
