Everything is gravy now. Campbell!!!!!
Lattimore & Smith will be at the BBQ
two up would it cause a meltdown on both blogs
The best kind of meltdown.
Yeah but according to Eleven Warriors it won't matter because Hoke can't win games. Apparently he will never do better than 8-5 again.
I got sucked in to reading more of that thread than I should have. What important recruit did Hoke call by the wrong name?
I have no idea. That whole thread becomes a joke after that comment. My favorite is the guy who says we "should have lost the Sugar Bowl" to discredit Hoke's 11-2 season. By that logic, how many games should OSU have lost last year?
Awhile back Berger said that Hoke called him Alex.... Or that was at least the rumor.
Edit: saw that someone already posted this a few comments below. My apologies
Logic is but one of their accomplishments.
The caption under the picture read: "Refreshment stand at county fair, central Ohio."
I have to admit I wasted 10 minutes of my life that I can not get back, as far as the recruit I was wondering the same thing but who cares?
I was in denial and refused to admit it until others came forward first
told Bucknuts that on his last visit to Michigan, Hoke called him by the wrong first name and that turned him off of wanting to commit. Just what I remember reading.
I have been calling my 8 month old by the dogs names. Hope she doesn't commit to another parent
You've been calling her Indiana?
I think they're taking about Tom. But that was RR, wasn't it?
Edit: too slow, and wrong too. Oops.
There's always some great quotes there. I'll pick this one as my favorite:
"I would put "0" confidence in the verbal commitment 5* George Campbell. He is an out of state talent, that lives so far away, I doubt he stays committed to TTUN, in the end I think he ends up staying south, just probably caught up in the moment."
would be a far better reference
To be fair, there is a decent bit of insight as well:
Urban once remarked that a mediocre coach can win a NC with great players but a great coach can not win a NC with mediocre players. (Urban was talking about the importance of recruiting) if you subscribe to this theory of Urban Meyer's, then hoke should be considered a NC contender based on the recruits he's been getting.
Hoke can sell ice in the winter, always a chance
Brady Hoke once sold me an umbrella in the middle of the Sahara Desert and I felt damned good about that purchase.
you should. that shade must have been awesome with the sun beating down on you in the middle of nowhere.
Umbrellas can provide shade in the desert.
He forgot to mention the umbrella was 100 percent transparent.
Brady Hoke sold Michigan jerseys in Ohio, and they sold like hotcakes.
He then proceeded to turn the tide in the rivalry.
Hoke sold sand to an Arab and ice to an Eskimo. He may in fact be Steven Bloom
Never once thought I would ever see something like that...
Once sold a car to Bill Brasky, at sticker price.
Would be a fair trade, I think.
I would take Lattimore over Webb in an instant. Not a fair trade. Both have electronic 40 times from combines: Lattimore was 4.48, while Webb was 4.68. Lattimore is more expolsive and has a couple inches on Webb. Webb was measured at 5'10 at The Opening, not the 5'11 or 6'0 he's sometimes listed at.
Webb is a pure cover corner with size and fluid hips. I'd take a tall cover corner with size over a safety any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Lattimore is pure cover corne, Smith is the safety
I thought Lattimore was more of an offensive recruit. Has he expressed a preference for defense?
He literally just said he's 5'10, which is 4 inches shorter than I am and I never even got an offer. Granted I've never played organized football.
Watch and see.
Lattimore is a borderline 5 star corner/athlete to most sites and would be a huge pull in the face of slowing with our other top db targets. It'd take some of the sting out of Ohio landing Michigan's top corner if we land theirs in turn. With the physicality and versatility of him and Peppers and Watson, they could complete our db recruiting with 3 and still have the top secondary class in the country.
The sting of Ohio getting Webb was taken away when we got Peppers.
Alabama south. He'd be a great pull but imo(from articles I've read) he's headed to the vaunted SEC. That also could be why he was an outcast at the FNL event.
I saw somewhere that he was sitting alone at one of the FNL events. How does Ohio fuck up that bad?
Before we read too much into that not everyone has a personality that is super outgoing. There are people out there - even football players - who are quiet, shy, introspective, etc. So that could be Lattimore. If you watch his interviews he is not gregarious. Doesnt mean a thing on the football field but just like Lewan is super outgoing and Schofield you never here a peep out of, it would be nice to have that tandem in Peppers (oozes charisma) and Lattimore (quiet assassin). But getting to your point dont read too much into it - we just assume every football player is rah rah type of personality.
...then he visited for the BBQ!
I wouldn't put anything past this staff. Hoke might just be the best recruiter in the history of Michigan football - can't definitively say that yet but we're heading that way FAST
[email protected]: Grenville receiver RT @__Trevon: On my way to Michigan”
I googled Trevon Story to find out more about him and all I got was Trevon Martin's Story. Not a good google name to have right now...
Shouldn't that be Glenville?
TomVH is Asian.
I literally laughed out loud at that. And yes it was a typo by Tom. I should have mentioned in my post.
Damnit there is no way any are coming now. Hope 11 warriors doesn't see that
the question, with Campbell commiting and a small class, is how many receivers we will take for the class. pressure may be on if you want to be part of the project
The pressure is always on with Hoke. That's how he gets kids to commit. I know this to be true because I read it on RCMB.
hope they have an enjoyable time. we would welcome them to the team 134 if they feel the love.
I've been kinda busy this weekend, did Fournette not come to the BBQ?
sarcastic? I can't tell, but no speculation is his grandma is very sick Idk if it was confirmed yet though
No sarcasm worked 2 13 hour shifts and I got out of town relatives in town so I have been busy I didn't know about George til about 1 am today
I am sure that the MIchigan family will realize that there are more important things in life than recruiting and give him ample time to recover. To my knowledge, he still is scheduled for an official visit this fall.
I have been thinking about this. Obviously the BBQ would have been an incredible recruiting boost for trying to land him. However, I bet if he/his dad talked to Hoke on the phone to inform that and why he wouldn't make it there was some major respect and trust gained in hoke being a prominent figure in LF's life for 3-3 years
Hoke is the only man allowed by Alec Baldwin to have a cup of coffee. #CLOSER
Erick Smith Highlights (courtesy of Scouting Ohio) for the board's study. He sort of makes me think of Thomas Gordon actually, and these are not bad thoughts at all - good tackler, good in traffic and decent in pursuit.
Open thread for these kinds of updates?
if it works I'm all for it. once i heard a story of a man named nuke LaLoosh , he wore women's under garment's and breathed through his eyed lids to throw strikes
Oh wow it'd be awesome to grab Lattimore out of Ohio. They grab our biggest in-state prospect, and we respond in kind with grabbing theirs.
I agree, even though myself I would rather have Harris or McDowell in-state. Not a knock on Webb though, he is a top notch player.
Until I hear great responses about Michigan from the Glenville kids I will believe they are there to promote the Glenville program.
I'm glad the Glenville kids are here. Lattimore and Smith can see firsthand how tightknit our program is. People are taking notice of the elite talent coming to Michigan and we are getting it outside of our Midwest footprint.

Hoke is never selling ice in the winter when it comes to Michigan football! Enough said.
