I'm not going to share this on the board and spread a bunch of innuendo without any real base behind it...so i was wondering if there was an expert mod or something that I could forward what I heard to...and hear something back?
If I hear a crazy rumor...that seems to have some legs...who do I report it to!?
Email it to Brian perhaps.
If it is something about this upcoming weekend, I would recommend posting it if it is positive news for Michigan. Just make sure you quantify the flimsiness of your facts so we all know what we're dealing with.
If its something negative, no one wants to hear it right now, especially if it ends up being false.
I'm not saying that we should ignore everything negative about the program, even though I know some of you will interpret it that way. I just personally do not want to hear it when The Game is only two days away.
its something that i should forward to the proper authorities. (you just wrote the book on rumor reporting! lol).
what is brian's email address?
there's a contact button at the top of the page that gives you the email address.
I hope you are talking about Brian because I'm pretty sure the police don't follow up on leads based on conjecture.
I wish you would have just emailed Brian to begin with.
Too much can be deduced from what little you've posted. There's another crazy rumor, it's negative, and it has legs.
Great. Now I'm worried.
LOL love it!
Vintage Belch right here... Welcome back, buddy, you haven't been your usual self these past few days!
I suggest posting it cause now my curiosity is killing me..
I'm as curious as anyone but please, for the love of God, if it is just rumor and/or has negative repercussions for the program, just email Brian.
Just tell the principal. That's what they taught me at Ceder Crest elementary school.
Send it to the Free Press. They specialize in publishing unsubstantiated rumors at their tabloid of a paper. Of course when the article comes out, "rumor" will be replaced with "fact", and "anonymous tip" will be replaced with "in-depth investigation".
Send it to Michael Wilbon or Terry Foster. Those guys thoroughly check every rumor before reporting it.
you may be treated as a hero there and your rumor may make it back here. Sadly, it's happened before.
I've started a blatantly false rumor on MLive before. It's really all sorts of fun
Don't worry about emailing it to Brian. If it's an unsubstantiated rumor with far-reaching implications that should be verified absolutely before spreading, Deadspin is probably already working on a post. Should be up later today.
Was the crazy rumor ever revealed?
I emailed Brian, have not heard back yet.
soo.... this is the rumor you had alluded to?
I don't even understand how this is news. The news story is, "MSC and Regents still haven't said anything."
Really?? How is that news. Them saying something would be news. This is... nothing. Literally.
that the regularly scheduled Regents meeting would still occur? Don't lose that source, he sounds solid.
Send it to Magnus along with your most current depth chart for 2013.
This is really one of the most annoying fucking posts all season. You remind me of a teenage girl who has a rumor she just cant keep to herself just because she wants attention - "I've know a secret and I'm not gonna tell!" Bad week/season for such games.
look buddy, i've been asked not to comment on what i've heard on the board. i posted the only legitimate thing i've seen in regard to the rumor i heard. take another look at it, maybe something will click. if you really want to know what i heard, send me a private message and an email or something...and if you promise not to spread it...i'll let you know everything i know.
Drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, I swear I will not tell a soul.
done. just don't post it here.
My lips are sealed
Isn't that exactly what's happening here?
I will not tell a single soul, I'm just curious.
Just a couple more observations - I find the K06em01's self-posbang in the OP curiously consistent with the need for attention through rumor mongering. I also wonder if anyone wanting to hear the rumor, and having to state "I promise I wont tell anyone" feels just the least bit emasculated.
difference between posting and emailing an unsubstantiated rumor is that recruits don't hear it. everyone i have emailed it to thus far has been thankful and intrigued. if you (or anyone else) wants one, let me know. i think i have sent them to everyone that's asked...but i'm losing track. if you asked for one and haven't got it yet, its bc i think i already sent you one...let me know if i havent.
you can tell whoever, just dont post it here or on any other board for that matter. read the email and you will know why.
I haven't gotten mine yet!

How exactly do you know you haven't just emailed your info to a dozen recruits, or their friends and relatives?

excellent enforcement policy there, you should work for the CIA.
Sportcrazy2003@yahoo.com I can promise you one thing, I will not talk about this with anyone until all the facts come out. Brian can Ban-Hammer me if I do. I just need to know if the "in between the lines" I read in the article is what I think it means.
Please send it to me as well.
I won't say anything.
email@example.com I'll keep it under my hat!
telling everyone else, why not me....
THE_KNOWLEDGE is sweating-bullets jealous right now.
admissions are falling off.
spill the fucking beans already!
This thread is hysterical. I'm surprised no one has signed all these email addresses up for a Sarah Palin newsletter, or porn or something.
It's already full of useless crap so what's some more. Now the funny part is, a little while ago I got an email from some dude from Obama's organizing for America site that said I needed to donate 5 dollars to stop Palin from spreading lies about the new Health Care bill.
I was wondering why my inbox was filled with Sarah Palin porn... This explains it.
