i hope he hated it in eugene.
Jake Fisher did not commit to Oregon
What kinda name is Eugene anyways?
Not surprising. Tom had told us beforehand that he planned on keeping things quiet until NSD.
As for the last weekend visit, it can mean something but he only had 3 weekends to take the 3 visits he wanted so he was inevitably going to have a visit this weekend anyway.
No one seems to have a bead on him. My gut is that he stays with us but that isn't based on much right now. Academics, Location, Familiarity with the school all play in to our favour though.
"In American English when you focus narrowly on something or define it carefully you “get a bead” or “draw a bead” on it. In this expression the term “bead” comes from the former name for the little metal bump on the end of a gun barrel which helped the shooter aim precisely at a target. “Beat” is often mistakenly substituted for “bead” by people who imagine that the expression has something to do with matching the timing of the person or activity being observed, catching up with it."
It's like the Death Star, only we're the good side.
JF planned the Oregon visit weeks ago - right after RR was fired.
Is there even a direct flight to Eugene? Maybe Portland isn't that far, but it sure is far from home.
It's called "Phil Knight's private jet."

If your last weekend is in Ann Arbor, it does mean you will likely sign with that last team. If it's not Ann Arbor, this theory does not apply.
I think it's Oregon vs. Michigan for Jake. 55/45 Oregon.
Hopefully Fisher doesnt like hippies
Because Ann Arbor doesn't have hippies??
probably not, but hopefully jake fisher thinks so
But the Hippie to regular person ratio is substantially lower
The only time I was ever in Eugene, I was offered drugs more times in two and a half days than I have ever been offered drugs in my whole life, combined, and that includes seven years in Ann Arbor. One of the first things I did was ask around for a basketball court. These girls directed me to specific part of a park. I get there, there are a bunch of picnic tables, no basketball court, and these two dudes are like "you here to buy bud?" No matter what you asked someone, or said to someone, I got the feeling they always thought you were asking about, talking about, or making sly references to drugs.
from a guy who pee's on the wall. Hypocrisy @ work.
It was my nickname as a middle school goalie
it was sarcasm, yeah i sucked
We nicknamed the terrible goalie on my middle school lax team "Helen Keller," a name which stuck with him all the way through his season as a starter on the varsity.
Just excited about this and wanted to post it somewhere! After graduating in May I am moving to Anchorage and could not be more excited! Also there is a group of alum up there that get together for all the FB games, it is going to be sweet. Go Blue!
Congrats. You should try out for Deadliest Catch. Be a greenhorn.
Los Anchorage, cool. Just minutes from Alaska.
teh U of Michigan must due all that it can to keep Jake.
Yeah, did he spell "do" d-u-e? Really? You stay smokey, Eugene.
I wonder if we could lend that site our grammar police for a few hours, since they probably need them more than we do.
Aside from the backhanded comments towards AA, the guy seems pretty level-headed and raises some good points.
Agreed. He notes that UM is the better academic school. As far as the campuses go, UM is an urban campus, dropped in the middle of the city, while MSU is a more traditional landscaped, sprawling campus that one usually thinks of when they imagine a college.
To each his own, but I totally agree with his assessment.
"Urban" to me suggests a school like Wayne State. Michigan is a school well-integrated into its surrounding town - much like UVa, UNC, Harvard, Princeton, Berkeley, Indiana, and many others.
I don't agree that MSU represents the prototypical campus. At least, not the prototypical campus of a school founded before the 20th century. MSU was a tiny agricultural school until the 1920s and its development, sprawling away from the town, reflects 20th-century thinking. (North Campus does as well.)
I +1'd that cause a guy with the handle "namaste" just said he hoped a city burns to the ground...lulz
I've seen Oregon fans call the B1G "a bunch of punt-lovers." Eff the Pac-10 and their high-scoring games.
We had high scoring games in 2010...sigh...RIP Spread Wing, Read Option Right (I dip my 40 for the homies that are not here anymore).
Hopefully Hokeamania + Big Al can figure how to keep the offense rolling and help shoelace win a Heisman.
Unfortunately, most of those high scores were recorded by the other team. We scored 20, 28, 7 and 14 offensive points in our last four games.
Well if Jake wants a good education, he should definitely go to Oregon. Unbelievable, smh.
Look's like this guy has plenty of stuff to "due" in reading up about "Fishier" because he can't even spell "teh" kid's last name right.
That post makes me want to throw up, I went to U of M for Undergrad and now MSU for school. This campus is the worst set up in the entire world. The stadium may be "on campus" but only because the campus is the entire city of East Lansing. I could walk to the big house from the dorms faster than I could get to the stadiums here if I lived right next to them. PS the food blows here, and it smells like cow shit. So many thats the classic part.
Agreed. The MSU campus has all the character of the Mall of America.
Did they expect him to commit this weekend? I hope Jake goes to Michigan.
it's about 90 miles north. It was 55 and partly sunny today, so I'm hoping that weather forecast is accurate. Personally, I think Eugene blows.
I'm glad PDX was sunny today because we haven't seen the sun in Seattle since December. It is supposed to be cooler and sunny this week though!!
Ann Arbor is so much nicer than Eugene. If he is smart he should go to michigan. Especially if he wants to play in the NFL
is that Jake's parents are pushing Blue. It is so much closer for them plus the education is better. He is used to the snow too.
If Michigan can lock up Fisher they would have a solid OLine class. I think Bryant is going to be a big time OL for Michigan.
Come on Fisher GO BLUE
It also has high academic standards. If you take this along with the fact that his parents didn't make the trip with him make me think Michigan is definitely in the drivers seat. I'd go 80/20 Michigan.
