How do you come in early and leave before the season starts? -_-
How do you come in early and leave before the season starts? -_-
Me too but why speculate about something so vague?
I've heard his fb said he was going back to OH and then shut the account down but who knows for sure.
Heard? From whom?
I would remove my comment since I didn't want to post without anything firm, so I apologize. However I can't seem to edit or delete my comment.
why he would want to leave. I mean yeah he is probably homesick but if you have a feeling you may get homesick you should probably stay in high school for another semester instead of enrolling early. I hope if it is Greg Brown that he changes his mind and decides to stay
is less than an hour away from Ann Arbor....
some kids that go to college early instead of finishing high school may have a lot of regrets of not being with their friends and living up high school before going into college.
It's a little further than an hour. It took me close to an hour to get to school when I lived in Erie (right on the border right off 75 - you could see my parents' house from 75 as you were driving past the Welcome signs) and it takes a closer to an hour than a half hour to get to fremont from there.
However. It's not like it's the other side of the country either. A visit home and back should be easily possible on a weekend.
was just written about him 4 days ago, that would be really strange.
Tate said "All you have to do to pass is show up" in an article a few days before he got sent packing from the bowl game for grades.
he decided not to show up?
i certainly hope not
What possible good can come from this thread?
People should be banned for starting a thread by speculating what someone says on their twitter.
Mods should delete this thread.
That is all.
I don't see a problem with posting this. This is a site where we talk about Michigan sports. It was posted by Koger. Why is discussing and speculating what a player on the team says a negative thing? If its so negative that we can't discuss it should this change how I feel about Koger? It does not for me btw.
"I don't see a problem with posting this. This is a site where we talk about Michigan sports."
How do you know it's about something Michigan sports-related? You say there's nothing wrong with it because this is a Michigan sports site; well how exactly does the tweet have anything to do with the football team/program, aside from it being part of an entirely as so far unsubstantiated rumour?
Agreed. If you're interested in kids' twitter pages, you're beyond help though. If you play with kids in fire, you're playing with kids in fire.
I would say that this site has featured many posts leading up to Signing Day that came directly from kids' twitter pages. I will go 1 step further and say that I would say that some of the mods as well as TomVH have posted based on the kids' twitter pages.
in paying attention to a college FB player's twitter and the tweets from a pro FB player? Or an actor or musician?
Oh yeah Koger? What's black & white and read all over?
good luck with one, it took me hours to figure that out.

A dead penguin with articles printed on it
I hope that's not what it means.
it is defiantly what it means.
no won; excapes tha gramer/spuhling naszi!.
No one escapes the grammar/spelling Nazi!
am defiant that I know what it means.
Wait. Nobody's arguing with me. I guess I don't have anything to be defiant about.
Because a lack of defiancy indicates... NEUTRALNESS! What causes a man to turn neutral? Is it some force, or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?
My national constitution states I have to attach my name to this discussion.
a guy posted in the forum that it was a rumor brown was leaving
i think webb going to the NFL.?? .i don't think it has anything to do with greg brown
so does that mean he can't be going to the NFL?
cause he keeping saying on twitter that hes preparing for the combine in march.
It would be very difficult being THE ONLY early enrollee at a school. No one to really relate too. Has that ever happened at U of M before? with only 1 early enrollee? He just needs to stick it out. First few weeks of february are the toughest weeks of the year....
I'm not going to speculate on the contents of the tweet, but I will comment on being the only early enrolee. I have to imagine that's pretty tough. New to a city, new to a football program that is much more intense than your high-school program, new to university life, classes and complete freedom. That's a lot to throw on a young man's shoulders.
except for the football part, every freshmen has to deal with what you stated. in fact, it may be easier for an early enrollee because he already has a "family" - the football team and the coaches.
LET THE MHSG, not strike us down.
This kind of thing is going to get you put back in your cell, Fu Man. You're reminding me of Pacino in Carlito's Way, getting caught up with old connections, slowly getting back into the game. Don't do it, man. Live on the straight and narrow for awhile.
Agreed. Not cool. Fail.
Making fun of the handicapped in a public forum is about as low as it gets. Out of the however-many-thousand people who read mgb, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of us who have relatives or acquantences afflicted by various handicaps.
Is it really that difficult to summon the creativity to get one's point across without stooping to that level?
Not "handicapped". You heartless bastard.
Actually, looking at the photo, it is special needs, and not disabled or handicapped. My dear wife works in such a school, and at least in the Chicago area, it is "special needs."
And regarding disabled, sometimes that is now changed into "differently abled."
Whatever. Agree that photo is in poor taste.
I would think that telling someone who is intellectually disabled that they are "afflicted" is fairly unthoughtful as well.
remember when i said he should have had to earn his way back from neg oblivion one post at a time and not simply out of pity and pos-bangs.
yeah... about that...
This is offensive and makes me sad
This could not be...
About a friend in another sport.
About a friend at another school.
About some friend somewhere saying he or she is feeling like they might like to leave.
A musing on early enrollees leaving from last season.
Some other not readily understood explanation.
Nope. It couldn't be ANY of those things. Must be panic mode time. HOLY SHIT OUR ENTIRE 2011 CLASS IS LEAVING!
his latest tweet "Why are people sleeping on Rick Ross"
It probably has something with people sleeping on the rapper known as Rick Ross, though it may have a deeper meaning. Anyone care to discuss or analyze?
The most logical explanation, that the only early enrollee Koger is spending time around currently (Greg Brown) is considering leaving..... it's twitter speculation but how many times did players or recruits tweet something during recruiting that was speculated on on this site. I don't see why it's a big deal to question it.... I don't think anyone is freaking out. It's one recruit. That said I hope Greg sticks around. Freshman year is tough. Let alone enrolling early. I think you are overreacting never got the feeling this was a panic mode post.
The tweet was referring to me. I went to the golf dome, I was preparing for the links, and I even went so far as to take private lessons. Despite my early season efforts, I threw in the towel after four consecutive snap hooks. Koger told me to weaken my grip and open up my stance, but instead i threw my sticks into the Huron. Sorry to disappoint. Eff golf.
Turns out the Huron is frozen, and there's a set of Titleist 690MB irons near Fuller and Maiden Lane if anyone is interested. Cleveland and Vokey wedges, Scotty Cameron putter.
we don't post crap like this, by the way, is because single, unverified, unconfirmed tweets have a way of being ... wrong.
"Hey you guys! Tate is transfering! Seriously!"
I think you posted the only SFW picture of that broad that exists on the interwebs.
Although in retrospect, she was only 5 months off. I think we can give her a little slack.
Assessing where you stand is a natural, and appropriate reaction when there is a coaching change, It doesn't reflect badly on either the student or the new coaching staff. The new staff does the kid a favor by telling him where he stands, as tough as that may be at the time. Then the kid can make an informed decision. I don't know if that applies w/r/t Brown, but then it becomes his decision. Better now then a couple of years later
There is a thread on an ohio high school sports blog that says he is gone. Not sure if it is any more reliable than this source though.
It certainly could be a coach or staff member since there are plenty of new faces around.
he was talking about michigan's upcoming deer hunting season. those stupid bucks, showing up early....
Thought it was a little weird in Hoke's press conference when Brown was brought up. Hoke was extremely brief in talking about him. He had more to say about some of the recruits he had met once.
Possibly/probably related: Sam Webb said this morning in the Recruiting Roundup that a DB has left, allowing room for an offer to Terry Richardson, but that he is letting the kid announce it for himself. He also said the coaches and the kid's family tried to convince him to stay but to no avail.
I'd post the link to the podcast, but it's not up yet.
Hell, for all we know he could have been talking about Austin White who left the program before the season started last year. Don't get too caught up in tweets from college students. If he is talking about Brown and he is gone, best of luck to him.
Hmm....kinda wasting your EE status eh? if he transfers does he sitll have to sit out a full year since this semester has started?
