No return phone call huh ?.
things go poorly
No return phone call huh ?.
That's the worst thing ever, when that special someone never calls you back!
Does he even have an offer from Oregon to commit too? According to Rivals he does not (no offer from LSU either).
I wish Hakeem the best of luck and hopes he ends up somewhere good. He wanted to come here but the situation changed.
With all the defensive back commits, BH may be thinking that he can convert one or more to WR in the future if needed. It would be easier to convince a DB to convert to WR than vice versa.
I thought Hemmningway got a med Redshirt as well and was only a RSoph last year? Am I worng on that? I thought next year he was going to be a RJr? Anyone?
Any big time WRs we are already targeting for 2012? I know Countess' teammate Stefan Diggs is a big time player -- will he be Offense or Defense?
Anyone else that we offered or are close to offering?
With all due respect, I don't care if Hoke did have a lot on his plate. He should have taken a few minutes out of his busy day, and at least had the common courtesy to call the kid. This is the same type of move that people get on Les Miles for.
You can try to defend Hoke... but he is the one that is always talking about, "Doing things the right way." It doesn't matter how you spin it, "This isn't the right way."
The dude took over a Big Ten football program less than a month before National Signing Day, needed to hire an entire staff, and now has to jam a couple months' worth of official visits into about two weekends.
I wish he had had time to call Flowers and explain the deal, too, but you know what? A man has to prioritize.
I keep seeing everyone refer to Hemmingway as a Sr next year. I thought he got a medical redshirt two seasons ago and was only a RSoph last season, thus making him be a RJr. next year? Accurate or am I wrong?
His first season at Michigan was Lloyd Carr's last (2007). He probably should have redshirted that year rather than making 1 or 2 catches, but whatever. Then he got a medical redshirt in 2008, played in 2009 and 2010, and will be a redshirt senior here in 2011.
The last position we need more of is wide receiver. So you want Hoke to keep this kids offer just to be nice? He said he is going to make decisions in the best interest for Michigan. Bringing in Flowers when you could get more depth at needed positions is assanine
No. I think he wants a five minute phone call to be made, which seems quite reasonable.
If his offer was pulled it's for a reason. Had it been Arnett or Watkins I guarantee you we'd have room...
I just don't like how the situation was handled, but whatever... it's not like my opinion matters. I wish the kid well.
I trust that the staff knows what they're doing and what they need. These guys seem like they're being pretty aggressive recruiting the guys they think they need so I trust them (at this point).
