On the Huge show just a few minutes ago, Huge asked Hoke if Denard has told him if he will stay. Hoke replied quickly with "yes." I like the source, time to move on to some other recruits.
chance of bowl: 13.6%
no denying that it's great news. but i think we'd all still like to hear it from denard.
I appreciate the "give me all the information now" attitude as much as the next fan. But the man's enrolled at the University of Michigan, is at all the team meetings for the University of Michigan football team, and his coach says he's not going anywhere. If he was transferring, I'd like to hear it from him, but a press conference to announce nothing has changed is a bit much. There's a line we cross when we over-emphasize one player (even the most important player on the team). It would be nice to see Denard smile for us again (gosh knows we love when he does that), but -- coming from a media guy -- this is really enough.
fair enough. i don't need a press conference. i'm just a worrying dude and i need me some denard.
Well, I said before the hire that Denard was telling fans he is staying. I also said I didn't know if that was just him keeping fans happy or the truth. I think combined with the coach saying he is staying you can rest assured.
yea Denard doesn't seem like the type of kid to play around like that
I believe that is called an "Izzo."
Joy in Mudville..
What press conference are you talking about?
With him staying, I don't think you would get a trip to the podium from him to announce that anyway. Too about the team to put the spotlight on himself to say he's going to stay with the team. I suspect that he's happy having his coach confirm that, no matter what the fanbase's insecurities.
Denard does not really like the media, and that smile is just so neat; lets leave him be.
I totally concur. Reminds of me of my 16 year old stepdaughter talking about how cute Tate is.
Job #1 - Done
Can we get Frost,Crawford, Lucien, Goudis on the line.
Amen. We have all the players back, high fives and hugs are over, time to recruit.
My guesses would be that Crawford and Goudis are Miami bound and Frost to UNC, but Hoke will be able to make a good pitch to Lucien, especially considering that he had two 1,000 yard recievers at SDSU last season, I believe.
Just wondering what your guesses are based on? I have no idea where they are going but TomVH who has more insight then most of us thinks Michigan is the leading candidate for Frost if Auburn doesnt take him in.
But said that we will have a shot at him. I think that's all it is as of now.
Sounds good to me! Now Hoke just needs to go get some recruits like the ones you mentioned!
Marlo, baby. Love me some Wire
...Dee Hart, too.
Is there any chance that we can pry away Lawrence Thomas from MSU now that we have a defensive minded coach? Hey, a guy can dream right?
While a lot of us are upset about the way the "Michigan man" meme has been abused, Denard is well on his way to going down in history as a classic Michigan man. I look forward to being able to witness the rest of it.
Reliable inside source?
His flight log confirms he was in ann arbor at the time he says he was.
I heard he still has 30 hours of flight time left with SDSU's jet.
is sitting at home lauging at all of us uninformed "fans"
Does he have enough MGoPoints??
You do the Hoke Pokey and you turn yourself around...
As much as I'm warming up to Hoke, I hope we don't have the hokey pokey as one of the in game piped in TV timeout activities at the Big House.
They played it at Crisler last night...I'm with you in hoping that it is the last time that happens.
Thats what its all about man, thats what its all about
Happy happy joy joy
You know what they say about those who stay.....
Those who stay.....
passing game. No brainer. I expect to develop into an even better QB.
Oh happy day... happy day....
2 years into his M career and he's already one of my favorite Wolverines since I've been born. I love him. No homo.
Okay maybe a little bit.
My 5 all-time favorite Wolverines that I saw play, in no particular order (b/c I can't put any of them at number 2)...
(OK, in order of the years they played here).
Denard is something special and has bumped Desmond or Gordie Bell into 6th place.
This is fantastic news...Denard staying, not Gordie slipping...
Yeah how can u not have Desmon and Charles on this list??
My top 5 Michigan players of all-time:
Bell, Lytle, Leach, AC, Desmond, Woodson, Hart, Denard.
(please excuse my SEC math)
