Wait, Pepper's visit went well? Hooray!
Nice column this afternoon: Webb on Peppers & his Michigan Visit
Mattison is my favorite
know if any of the guys have met him, but he is the coolest coach I have ever been around. Not what you'd expect
Real Recognize Real
I guess that's why the gangstas be at all my shows.
Maybe this will become one of MgoBlog's new t shirt slogans.
Real Recognize Real
It's a pretty old saying.
Yeah but Go Blue is a pretty old saying and that still works.
Why does a saying's age affect its t-shirtability?
I'll rephrase. It's an old saying with no connection to the University, as opposed to an old saying that is primarily associated with the University (or a new saying that is primarily associated with the University).
I would love a Real Recognize Real shirt. I think it would be a real cool shirt.
I'm starting to think that maybe you aren't real and thats why you can't recognize it.
I made a post five days ago on this very site where I used that phrase. I posit that this proves that I am both real, and can recognize it.
You are unreal and we all recognize it.
That you yourself are unreal. Observe.
Given that real recognize real, it follows that real does not recognize unreal, as this would render trivial real's recognition of real.
By your own assertion you recognize unreal, thus you cannot yourself be real.
This is unsound logic. If real can recognize real, that means it can distinguish between real and unreal, whereas unreal is unable to make this distinction. Therefore, the poster above, being real himself, was able to recognize that you are unreal, or more specifically, could recognize your lack of real.
Not knowing the rules of real is even more evidence of your unrealness.
The definition of recognize is to acknowledge formally (as in to admit as being a lord or sovereign, or more appropriately in this case, to admit as being of a particular status).
Using this to rewrite the two statements gives us, "real acknowledges real as being of a particular status" and "real acknowledges unreal as being of a particular status". Everything that is not real is unreal, thus if both statements are true it must follow that "real acknowledges everything as being of a particular status" is also true.
But given Michigan and Ohio (both part of everything) we know that everything cannot be of a particular status because Michigan and Ohio are not of the same status.
Thus the statement "real recognize unreal" must be false, because if it were true then everything would be of the same status, including Michigan and Ohio.
You don't think Michigan and Ohio are of the same status, do you?
Nicely put my fellow mgoblogger.
New Mgoblog headline?
Let the tradition continue: D.Cone (David Cone) > JDK and Rey (Jack Kennedy and Joe Reynolds) > J-Reall (Jabrill Peppers)
shoot from the top of the Union?
Someone, quickly T-shirt the shit out of that.
I don't now he doesn't pick us. Grew up a Michigan fan and was blown away by his visit. I mean Stanford is going to have show him the greatest visit in the history of visits to pull him out there. Don't see that happening.
"He compared me to (Woodson) a lot actually, but my goal is that I want to be better than Charles Woodson"
Yeah, and I want to be cooler than John Stamos but some goals are just a little too lofty.
People who set high goals usually accomplish more than those who don't. If I was a coach, I would love hearing someone come in with that mindset.
Being as good as Woodson is already a pretty damn lofty goal.
'95 Stamos or '13 Stamos? This is important.
Normally I would say either, but one has Rebecca Romijn and one doesn't. Also, '95 Stamos had the inside track with the Olson twins. Get 'em before the anorexia does.
Yes please! Even if you are simply almost as good, I'll still find it in my heart to forgive you. ;)
How is this the first time that we're hearing JBB's nickname is Big Sexy?
Are there any interviews with and Stanford supporters? I'd be interested to see what he's had to say about them, compared to what he's saying about us, because from the sound of it, he seems like a sure thing to come to Michigan.
Stanford doesn't have any fans. Only rich alums who are too busy making millions of dollars and operating on brains to pay attention to football.
No offense, just wondering if that's twitter gossip or actually coming from someone in the know. That perspective certainly would fit with Shaw's whining on twitter
Just type in "coach Shaw negative recruits Michigan" and Shaws tweet will be first thing up. He called out the Michigan education and bragged up the 3 straight BCS bowls hinting they are superior in football as well. Could be considered harmless but was definitely juvenile for a coach.
Continuing the tradition of one Jim Harbaugh, it appears.
will usually see through that kind of cheap and negative approach to recruiting. That's probably why he's getting sick of the whole process and wants to move up his schedule for announcing his decision.
I'd love to see a comparison of the two players as prospects at the same stage - Peppers vs. Woodson. I remember Woodson was a very highly rated player too coming out of H.S.
Something about that "Real recognize real" statement is just another really I really, really like how this staff operates. Without doing much of anything other than being who they are and introducing them to the players and the culture that the staff has created, we have recruits - highly rated ones at that - giving Michigan glowing reviews. It's just another example of how creating this atmosphere as they have can indeed attract the some of the best like Jabrill Peppers. That's probably the most sound way to build a foundation for sustained success.
Also, the prospect of Peppers bringing pain in the secondary is not a bad thought at all.
does is work hard, and be genuine. What the university is and offers speaks for itself. A great recipe for success for the coaches and the university. Hail!
But I feel that that is something RichRod never understood. We're Michigan, dammit, and everybody else isn't.
Don't start this debate up again. Move along people, nothing to see here.
Edit: I agree with you, FWIW.
Speaking of Peppers, he ran a 10.77 second 100 meter dash recently. For comparison, Denard ran a 10.44.
Peppers actually tweeted earlier today saying that he ran the 100 meter dash in 10.48 seconds.
Peppers probably weighs 40 pounds more than Denard did in high school too.
Robinson was listed at 185 as a true freshman in 2009.
But I bet he wasn't 185 as a junior in high school, because that's how old Peppers is. I wouldn't be surprised if that 185 is a little inflated as it is, since even now he's barely 200.
My thought was that he was about 165 and Peppers is about 205 (since he's listed at 205-210). Now that's I've looked them up, their Rivals weights are 31 pounds different, so although I was a little off, my point certainly still stands.
And my point is simply that all of those weights are inflated. If his profile lists him at 205, he's probably closer to 195.
If I said 30 instead of 40, does that change the point? I just meant Peppers ran those times as a bigger dude.
Just the way he's talking about Michigan and mentioning Woodson, the greatest defensive player in the history of college football since players started playing only one way. Makes me have a happy.
Jabrill Peppers wouldn’t let an injury deter him from ultimate success.
The Paramus Catholic junior speedster set a meet record as he blazed to a 10.83 clocking to win the 100-meter sprint at Thursday’s sixth annual Don Bosco Ironman Invitational at Ramapo College.
Peppers, who slightly strained his right groin at last week’s Penn Relays, beat the mark of 10.95 by Hackensack’s Conroy Walker in 2010.
"I didn’t want to aggravate it but I ran overall pretty well. I came out of the blocks quick and just kept in a natural rhythm," Peppers said. "I’ve done as well as 10.8 this year and my personal best is 10.77 last year, but I think I can get it down to 10.4 by the time the states come around. That’s my goal and I think I can achieve it."
