Laquon Treadwell just tweeted Team 134.. Any news of his commitment?
Idk but that's an awesome twitter handle.
Are all female. The ladies like themselves some Quon.
"Roll Tide" not infrequently; or so I've been told...I'm no stalker ;-)
He forgot Devin Gardner in that list.
I thought that somebody tweeted HIM that, not that he tweeted that. You're probably right though, twitter confuses the shit out of me.
he lists desmond, alexander, toomer, terrel, braylon, mario, then him #134
What does this mean haha? is he playing with our emotions? did someone hack into his twitter to mess with Michigan fans?!? Cmon Tread, go Blue!
Some UM fan listed a bunch of former greats at WR for UM and included Treadwell's name at the end of the list in a tweet a few spots down. I think "Quon" was just responding to his tweet.
Move along, people, nothing to see here.
(hoping I'm wrong, of course)
(EDIT: Well, I guess I just demonstrated my complete lack of Twitter understanding. I thought that mjohnson dude was the guy who tweeted about the former UM players. Crazy kids and their crazy Twitter....get off my lawn!)
What's with his single tweet of Team 134?
I think Laquon just retweeted the guy but later on he did tweet "Team 134" so that's a little more something there
We need a new bat signal.
Looks like it is just a retweet and nothing more (after geting my hopes way super high)
tweet says Team 134 its not an re-tweet.
But that's his handle (Gemini something), so that one was him. The other one was a retweet.
if you do Marty Feldman's voice in your head saying it.
This is promising! I love the fact that he knows a little about the history of our WR's.
That was someone else's tweet to get him amped for us.
twitter confuses the hell out of me
does google auto-translate tweets now too? this would be very helpful
Some guy tweeted him a list of former awesome Michigan WRs and he really must have liked it bc he RTd it. Then his next tweet was on his own and it said Team 134. It is confusing if you dont have twitter. Either way, Michigan is on his mind.
Thanks for the translation.
I looked at twitter for Elite11 updates over the weekend, and the entire retweet thing threw me for a loop.
Will cheerfully admit my lack of twitter familiarity.
Get off my lawn! (only 36 but that's how a i feel)
you just described exactly how I feel about twitter. it's like I'm seeing some bizarre heiroglyphs for the first time, riddled with alien punctuation & invented words. I can't crack the code, I can only take scholarly guesses at the form & meaning of what I'm assuming is dialogue ...
Someone needs to start a Wikitweetia site. Its gold Jerry, gold!
And I think the odds are in Michigan's favor over any other school, recruits do these things all the time. It's like how what a recruit is wearing to an event doesn't mean that is where they are going. Can't be a bad sign by any means, but it shouldn't really mean much more to an outsider than that in the end.
Beat me to it. You sir are fast.
I am widely considered the Usain Bolt of twitter copy/pastes.
What a coincidence! Go Blue LT...113,000+ are ready to explode over your first TD reception.
Wow - I wasn't sure where you were going for a second when I read: 113,000 are ready to explode over your...
i know I am NOT the only one who thinks of this guy:
Everytime we start talking about LaQuon Treadwell.
Am I not?!
Just because he is black?
Nah, Rod Tidwell was undersized. More like a Steve Smith type receiver IMO. Quon has the size to dominate in the red zone and all over the field.
I know this was more serious of a response than you were expecting.
He means "the quan". Some guys will have the coin, but they'll never have "the quan".
Also, Tidwell/Treadwell sound similar.
Whenever I hear LaQuon Treadwell's name, I think, "Treadwell by name. Tread very well by reputation."
No way... Tidwell was a No.3 / No. 4 receiver on a very bad Cardinals team. LaQuon is destined to be a top 20 first round pick and No. 1 receiver wherever he goes......
Pretty bold statement. How about we hope he's destined to be a wolverine first?
We're comparing him to a fictional character. I think the sarcasism and/or unlimited dreaming is acceptable.
Now if I were to say he's going to be David Terrell and Braylon Edwards wrapped into one, but with the the NFL career of Jerry Rice.... now tha would be a call for level headedness.
Because, honestly, if he plays anything like Cuba Gooding Jr we are really wasting a scholarship on this guy.
Cuba Gooding Jr. from Radio? Completely agree with you.
I was thinking the one footed Cuba from the DeNiro military dive movie but we are on the same page - do not waste a schollie
I really hope he ends up Blue, but if not it is because he doesn't have a committable offer .
Treadwell has had a committable offer as long as anyone in the 2013 class.
is channeling his inner Bucknut.
He got it in kindergarten, fergodsakes. His mom had to read some of the bigger words for him.
information at the age of 5? He's obviosuly not a Michigan Man.
Please keep up this theme. It pleases me.
We don't have two separate types of offers. If Treadwell doesn't go Blue it will be because, A) he liked somewhere else better or B) he waited too long and don't have an open spot.
I agree that we aren't Ohio, but we've definitely had situations where players have uncommittable offers. It's been reported on this here blog before. Not everything Ohio does is bad.
I can detect your sarcasm even without the '/s'. I very much appreciate that.
Latest tweet: "No I didn't commit just a tweet"
Yeah I just saw that too...
Hard to know what any of it means. Has he had similar tweets about other teams recruiting him?
Can't be bad- but also may really mean nothing at all as far as him coming to the Big House...
He's had a couple about other schools, but the majority are Michigan tweets/retweets.
I'm pretty sure that means he reads MGoBlog. In fact, I'll bet he tweeted that just to see our reaction here.
I don't blame him on that one, if I was in his situation, I feel like I would totally do the same thing. However, I'd use my power to screw with Buckeye fans.
yep, can't read into twitter too much with recruiting.
What does this mean?! Damn you cryptic Twitter!
Woke up feeling BLUE today!
Saw a mighty nice RED car today.
Wait, can anyone tell me the difference between Red and Scarlet
I went to practice Sooner than I expected today.
I had a dream about Leprechauns last night.
Saw 300 last night. Look, I don't do dresses, k?
Can we not stalk HS students.
I hear that they are stalking us!
We see you Laquon~!!
Why use an evocative word like stalking to describe reading a public account? Are you practicing for a job at a paper in Detroit?
Now, I'm not 100% certain that it needed to be a thread here within minutes, but then, I'm not the thread gendarmerie.
It's pretty common to see the word stalking next to the word twitter anymore. It's sad because there are real cases of stalking that it seems our legal system is unable to do anything about.
In short the article says -
"A man sent over 8,000 disturbing and threatening tweets to a Buddhist religious leader in a few short months, even going so far as to tell her to “go kill yourself”. But despite scaring her so much she refused to leave her house for 18 months, a judge has found this man innocent of stalking – siding with the freedom of speech advocates that Twitter is a public forum that can be disregarded by the victim."
This is worlds away from reading a post and reposting it to a blog, which is all that was done here. Worlds away from stalking...
Another interesting discussion point in the article was the judge's ruling. He ruled in that case that it wasn't stalking because it was public. His reasoning was this -
“In his order, Judge Titus drew an analogy to the colonial period, when the Bill of Rights was written. A blog, he said, is like a bulletin board that a person of that time might have planted in his front yard. “If one colonist wants to see what is on another’s bulletin board, he would need to walk over to his neighbor’s yard and look at what is posted, or hire someone else to do so,” he offered.
With Twitter, he went on, news from one colonist’s bulletin board could automatically show up on another’s. The postings can be “turned on or off by the owners of the bulletin boards,” he wrote. In other words, one can disregard what is posted on a bulletin board. “This is in sharp contrast to a telephone call, letter or e-mail specifically addressed to and directed at another person,” he concluded.”
Not exactly how I would look at Twitter, but it does kind of put a different perspective on the issue.
Adding recruits on facebook and then posting stuff on their wall is borderline stalking.
Posting thoughts on the 100% you-know-its-public-space twitter is not
Laqoun is Stefon Diggs 2.0. I hope I am wrong though.
Seams like he sure likes the spot light
on seam patterns?
This is how I feel with twitter:
Really doesn't mean anything when I write it...
Wait - is that a commitment? Hello: Allin4Blue?
He lacks top-end savoriness
What's up with the guy that listed all the great Michigan Wideouts,but didn't include AC? Come on man!
But he also tweeted wanting to know when Michigan's spring game was. I'd say he will probably committ then.
Too many people who don't grasp the concept of sarcasm and are wayyyy serious in this thread haha. The funniest respones is the just completely obvious sarcastic response followed by someone who is completely serious.
Also, if I was a recruit I would purposely send a fanbase into a flurry like once a week, just to inspire a thread like this. Then read it with my friends and laugh.
To be honest, I've ALWAYS wanted a coach to do that during a press conference (and I've said this here before). Knowing that fan bases take things so seriously, it'd be hilarious to watch sites go absolutely crazy. Can you imagine what would happen if Borges said something like "I'm thinking about revolutionizing the whole offense. What I'm gonna do is get rid of the quarterback and have four running backs do a hell of a lot of reverses." (props if you know the quote)
Then again, I'm a terrible individual that takes glee in odd things.
Is there some way to turn props into MGoBlog points?
Eck Sentric needs to change his ID photo, or his avatar, or whatever you call it. It's sick....
