I hate both of you.
Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
I hate both of you.
I have too much time invested in this softball game to not watch him say it himself.
IM WATCHING NEBRASKA OREGON WOMEN'S SOFTBALL WAITING FOR MY ANSWER!!!!! This is going to be a great cookout!!!!! Eeeeee eeeeeeeeee
Against all things Nebraska. Not that you need a good reason, but this could suffice.
So because the game went into extra innings, they decided to forego the announcement?
In any event: welcome, Jabrill!
seriously.....this is driving me nuts. i want to see this live. will they delay it, or switch it to a diff channel?
Biiiiiiiiiiig time pickup. Go Blue.
Fuck both Nebraska and Oregon, they ruined this for all of us!
Why am I even mad? Michigan just picked up the #2 recruit in America.
Well that's...that's just fine.
Fucking softball. I feel so unsatisfied.
"THERE'S NO RULES!"
"Put your shity back on, sir."
"THERE'S ONE RULE!"
"The sneezeguard is broken! THERE IS NO LAW!!!"
welcome aboard Mr Peppers
I'm shocked that:
A) I was the first one to post this, I'm never that guy
B) That there weren't 10 threads made at once. With someone like Peppers I assumed everyone would be at the ready to make a thread the second it was announced. You guys are slacking.
We were all busy watching softball.
Real recognizes real. Go Blue
I'm sure that will be on a T-shirt this Fall.
I'd buy that.
OMG OMG OMG OMG!
Welcome Jabrill! Go blue!
This looks photoshopped.
If you look closely the binders are the same...
We're going streaking!!!
I FUCKING HATE ESPN, GOD DAMN I HATE ESPN.
Is very good news... This guy can really play. If he comes close to having a career like Charles Woodson I will be estatic.
So would everyone else seeing as Woodson may be the greatest M player ever...
Paging Mr. Hand. Paging Mr. Hand.
dammit, just wanted to see him say Michigan on TV, was that to much to ask?
He can say it all you want at the Rose Bowl.
Real recognize real.
It's gonna be tasty
horseshit softball game ruined it for me. I dont even want Peppers anymore.
Well, that makes one of us.
Welcome to the family Jabrill. Go Blue!
now I can quit watching a softball game I have no interest in at all except for dirty old man interests.
I think you could pick a better sport to watch than softball for your ulterior interests.
I'm going to watch him say it himself, even if this damn softball game takes all evening.
If this site doesn't crash tonight, I will be very disapointed.
"Peppers picks Michigan for his football future. Brady Hoke is just kicking ass and signing names on the recruiting trail."
This is by far the unhappiest I've ever been when a 5 star prospect commits to Michigan.
I'd be so pissed if I was him.
Welcome to Michigan! Go Blue!
So pumped up ... Still watching this softball game !
What a way to start off my vacation!!!!! Welcome to Michigan JP!!!!! GO BLUE!!!!!
He decommits at some point and then recommits on tv. I like watching high school kids put on Michigan hats, but the 'lids' at woodland mall usually kicks me out after a few minutes.
Hope for pahokee just got some Pepper!
that I was worried about Hoke's ability to recruit! GO BLUE!
I'm here for the posbang!
I'm OK with this.
Kick-Ass. Hopefully Peppers will spice up our secondary. (hurr hurr)
Link anywhere for a replay of the announcement?Stupid softball game.
best Michigan football recruit ever at least since the late 90s! damn right go blue!
It's great to be a Mighigan Wolverine! Go Blue!!
Jabrill Peppers has committed to Michigan, his announcement will air after the game still & will be worth watching. He does something unique

And Kate makes us happy when she's happy
Real recognize real. And those...are real
....that when this post hit, I scrolled through the comments until Kate came out to show my wife? She always thought it was funny.
If your wife thinks it's funny, that sounds more like it's "awesome."
the site crashed yet?
Jabrill actually went over to MGoblogs host servers location and made a few adjustments to the system to allow it to not crash. The kid can do it all.
Turning up the heat on defense with Peppers.
Also, Go to hell Nebraska and Oregon.
ESPN should have pulled a Kanye
Welcome to Michigan, Jabrill Peppers!
To paraphrase Hannibal Smith, "I love it when a recruiting class comes together."
Also, that was nice and orderly - only one thread to date. Good work, MGoBlog! The server has not perished!
Man, I've gotten a lot of mileage out of this jpeg during the past couple of years.
We been waiting on ya !!!!!
I can't believe ESPN didn't just go to the Peppers announcement for one minute and go right back to the softball game. Everybody would be happy.
How do you sum up this weekend?
ND: gets dong punched (Gholson)
UM: gets Peppers
I: get wasted tonight
Yep I gotta say it was a good day
Always a Wolverine...
How old is that pic? He's wearing a Don Bosco jacket.
Memorable 1st day on the board. True game changer heading to Ann Arbor, Hoke and his staff are just incredible....GO BLUE
let's give him a Hand!
I see what you did there.
I didn't get to watch it, but I don't give a shit because I'll take it!
Suck it Urban. 11 warriors would have ha you convinced was a buckeye 3 months ago.
it might not fit the occassssssssionnn but i put it herrrreeeee aannnnnyyyyywaayyyyy
for some reason I forgot what this thread is about
Man them are real recognize real titties.. Sorry got too excited and said titties
I'm at work and couldn't wAtch. Anyone have a link to the video?
pretty much knew he was coming, we don't get to see it live. Its not like we get to see a lot of these all the time, especially with a consensus top three prospect. I feel cheated. Damn Oregon for coming back and damn Nebraska for not closing this one out.
still my all-time favorite gif
Mine too. Great gif.
Welcome to Michigan young fella
WHY IS THIS GAME STILL HAPPENING?!?!
Fuck yeah murica
Rivals has updated the team rankings:
Did anyone else see Northwestern tied for 14th overall???
I know there's a lot of time left, but to Northwestern this high at any point is mind blowing.
Notre Dame loses a QB and we get the best CB in the country on the same day?! Move over wedding day, this takes the spot for best day ever
Can't one of these girls pop a ball over the 220 foot fence. Hurry up.
peppers cooking on my grill in the backyard as I type...
Little 7&7 about to be poured....
Oregon scored!!! Go Ducks!!!! End this fucking game already!!!
I'll be so pissed if I was Peppers.
This is his moment to shine and there is this softball game ...
Granted, but if he lives up to his billing, he's going to have plenty of moments to shine in the spotlight over the next few years. And they'll be much bigger moments than his school announcement.
I'd think a super regional game is more of a "moment to shine" than announcing a college decision. Unfortunate scheduling by Peppers, but softball has been scheduled for this time and date on ESPNU for at least a year.
seriously are we sure this hasnt been going on all day?
Said by myself and the rest of us young'ens
Johnny Olson was the original announcer on Price is Right and coined the phrase "Come on down." Maybe you're more familiar with Rod Roddy, Rich Fields or George Gray (current guy).
Roddy wreminds me of every sick day from school growing up. Thanks for educating me.
reccaping the game.
Thanks Oregon, about time ...
The kid is still smiling. I like that.
Link to video of commitment: http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=9313967
I wanted to wait until it was official, so Hell Yeah.
Of butthurt buckeyes out there right now
That is all.
Can haz Damon Webb. We haz Jabrill Peppers!!!!
We're on the same wavelength man, thought the same thing. Unfortunately read your post after I posted mine...redundancy only reinforces the fact that J.Peppers is awesome.
This is the first time - but hopefully not the last - that I've given out a TTB Rating of 100.
Omg this makes me wayyyy too happy. Welcome to the family mr. Peppers
I'll take your Webb and raise you Peppers! CassTech Corner who?
I'm not going to lie, I would gleefully welcome Webb into the class.
Dang it! Now i have to go have another drink or 5.
welcome to U of M. Here is your #2 jersey. It fits you well.
Too bad OSU's offer wasn't committable.
Too bad he isn't from Neptune.....that is why MSU missed out on him.
It looks like he will join Ferns as the next Shane Morris recruiter.
.....that there was a two part pleasant surprise brewing a few weeks ago. Sorry if it was already mentioned. The first was the Peppers announcement which he helped arrange for ESPNU. The second was another commit at the announcement which didn't materialize but still could happen. That HAS to be Hand.....seriously, it's gotta be.
The other commit may have been the one LB that just committed to Kansas. i recall he wanted to do a joint commitment in nyc with peppers.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was Kyron Watson. Probably a non-issue now.
That's what I thought too. But TomVH said it specifically wasn't Watson (said he wasn't sure what Watson was talking about) and one he first said something was brewing, said it was a big deal.
Again, 1st part is the ESPNU announcement, 2nd part was getting the other recruit to commit at the same time. He said, the 2nd part wasn't happening but could in the future. That recruit remains a mystery but again, you have to think it was Hand. I can't think of any other big recruits Peppers would be talking to.
for joining our U of M family, the Kate Upton, basically making a so so weekend special, salvaging a boring Sunday. Just to name a few. Yes I know, I shouldn't put so much into your verbal commitment, its just obvious your potential for a great career so please forgive me .......... Thanks again Go Blue!
And it still feels good - fergodsakes. I have been following Peppers for a while now and the kid is just impressive. I started my fandom with his highlight video and then read up about his father being in jail. Afterwards, I watched his rap video (and its MoWays better than Datbull's video). Also, I love the way he is on board with recruiting for team 135.
He hasnt played a down of football and I already can root for him on the level of Denard and Burke. And if he has similar success, then I'll be rooting for him in the NFL. And if he decides to pursue his rap career, I'll be downloading his music because he is a special kid.
