He looks like the next Jake Long, but stronger.
OT: Newest Wolverine (Class of 2030)
But better at hyperbole.
Why the hate?
that yet another in-state super commited to Michigan
Yeah Sparty recruits nationally, come on man read the memo!
Also, congrats on the new addition to your family my man, may he live a long and prosperous life and be a hell of an M Footballa!
on seeing him stand up before they award a 5th star.
Well done, you win one internets.
That is one small block M hat.
Great looking family!
He has All-American written all over him!
Congrats. While arm length appears to be an issue, I would recommend working on pad level as well.
I would say he has great low pad level, but I think his footwork could definitely use some work. I think we have a great coaching staff to get that fixed though.
With that being said, congrats to the new family and congrats to Brady Hoke in landing this future blue-chipper.
Don't worry regarding arm length, just make sure he has lots of grit and moxie
Congratulations. Enjoy every minute
He can send his LOI tomorrow. A footprint will work as a signature until then.
Is Barwis going to help with his conditioning?
Barwis told us that he didn't tolerate crying in his establishment, baby or not.
Congrats! That little hat is great.
Congratulations. If this is your first kid, make a mental note now about what sleep is like. It'll be a while before you become re-acquainted with it.
Sometimes the only reason I want a kid is to take a picture of it wearing a cute little Michigan hat like that. Also, congratulations!
Those stats make me think scat back/db combo.
I'd say he needs to work on his vision, but otherwise looks promising!
He looks intense in the second picture.... obviously the next Jordan Kovacs. But faster, and with more grit.
Will his first word be "fergodsakes"?
He's doing great so far. I watched the M vs Ohio game from the hospital room Sunday, and he started crying considerably when Ohio pulled away in the second half. The force is strong in this one.
Congratulations! Given his partial Domer genes, I'm sure he'll be screaming like Brian Kelly before long.
wow! your wife looks great for having just had a child. Enjoy the little one and cherish the time,
but dont plan on sleeping much for the next two months.
He already is thinking of brunette girls.
You're really setting his expectations on sleep way too high. My little guy finally started to sleep after we did cry it out at 9 months. Then he started to add 3 more teeth at once so he regressed and we had to start cry it out again when they came in. At that point, it only took a couple nights of some crying to get him back on task.
That there is a cute little boy! Lol, did you change your Avatar for the occassion, I thought you were an older marine gunny earlier...
Careful, wives can be cunning. Don't let ND steal him away.
This happened on Saturday; why are we finding about it just now?
Nice hat, and remember... these exist as well!!
Cute kid. Congratulations!
Congrats on that.
And congrats a million times more for the newest wolverine!
Wow, congrats! You do good work.
Keep those options open. My little wolverine (who is now in middle school) looks to be on the small side, so I am beginning to wonder how many Big Ten championships he'll be able to deliver to Hoke & company. However, I still have him pencilled in for winning the Nobel prize in Physics while affiliated with the University.
He can't do both?
Congrats. He's going to need to add a couple of pounds, and I'm calling 4 FAKES out of 5 on his 40-yard crawl time of 13s, but he's looking good.
Has he gotten an offer from Lane Kiffin yet?
ugh why'd you have to go and humanize yourself like this. it'll be harder to neg you now.
Thanks for the "Hello Post". Congrats !!!!!!!
Congratulations! He looks great!
Congratulations! We have a 14 month old, and I haven't had a full night's sleep since he was born. Naps are your friend.
Enjoy every minute, sleep is over-rated, and glad to see your brainwashing has started early! I'm sure he'll be doing the Touchdown by next season....my 2yr old daughter says "daddy has Go Blue on!" everytime I wear something with a block M. Which is very often. Still working on my 10month old boy...I have high hopes as well Coach Hoke!
Right before signing day, too! There's still room in this class. Or maybe just opt as an early enrollee for the 2030 class.
Congrats on your new Wolverine!
Has he made any epic double points yet?
My daughter is 20 months and can (kind-of) sing "The Victors". She has the "Hail!" parts down pat.
One question. Can he bench his weight 18 times?
I've got one coming in April.
Maybe our sons can be a package deal to UM.
We'll have to see if the "commit in 2's" thing is still strong in 18 years.
Best of luck to you and your wife in the coming weeks/months/years!
what's his name? Tom, Jake, Chad, Mike, Anthony, David, Brady....
question is who downvotes the birth of a child? Congrats on the birth of your child!
Regarding neg votes, fyi, there is a tab at the top of every new post identifying who gives a positive and a negative vote. I wondered if that particular poster got up on the wrong side of the bed, or has a vendetta, or doesn't like babies.
Regardless, congratulations. May the journey be good, for you and your son. Oh, and you're going to have to do one or more of the following:
- make lots and lots of money
- help your kid do extremely well academically (to win scholarships)
- live in the State of Michigan
- raise a stud athlete.
Otherwise, your progeny will be hard-pressed to follow your footsteps! Good luck, and God bless you.
Congratulations, that's tremendous!
Full of win.
Who the heck would neg a baby picture?
The only arguable infraction that was committed was that this isn't "OT." I mean, the kid will be wearing a winged helmet in about 18 years, so, it's on topic.
Congrats to the OP. Words can't explain how awesome fatherhood is.
Or rather, the negger hasn't shown his avatar. I think he knows what would happen . . .
I suggest that you immediately begin teaching him not to be a pincher bug.
Well, obviuosly congratulations. Lovely looking family and wish you every blessing. Now if I am correct, this young star will obviously be the crown jewel of our 2030 recruiting class but will be a member of the UofM class of 2034. (Obviously, the impressive bit is being a three year starter, captian of the team while graduating with top marks in Astrochemistry.)
He looks a little undersized. A college weight program would do wonders. Based on the TomVH video Barwis trains babies now. You should give him a call.
I have already told my wife, that when we have kids and she has her baby shower, we are registering at MDEN. Not sure if this is possible or not, but it will happen.
had mine 2 hrs ago and is 19 3/4 in and 8lb 3oz and will also ready to go in 2030. was planning on a kicker but he is two wks early and a solid so could be closer to the line. wife is a two sport college athelete so hopefully gets her genes.
Congrats to you as well!
It's especially great to get all this advance news on future recruits, since signing day may not be all that dramatic.
What a cute lil' guy. Congrats to you and your wife!
Congratulations. Love the cap.
Everyone will tell you so I'l just reiterate: time definitely flies by. I remember my son being that small and now, in a 7 months, he'll be off to college. I have a suggestion (something I wish I did more diligently). Take a picture of a similar pose every year on his birthday and keep them all together. Also, keep a journal.
Caution: if a man named Marinovich starts offering you parenting tips, steer clear.
Don't tell Rural Meyer, or he will also get an Ohio offer....best wishes to your family!!
Congrats Wolverineinabag. My little 5 star should be a sophmore when your little 5 star shows up for fall camp. I'll be sure to make him treat him most excellently. BTW my sons name is cooler by default because I named him Boden, or Bodie as my wife likes to call him. But we all know right here on this blog that his name is really "Bo".
Aquaman has some splain'in to do ...
to the both of you!
I think "aaamichfan" should be banned for life for negging this this thread.
Helmholdt said he wasn't due for 2 more weeks... Consider my Rivals subscription cancelled.
Honesty, beautiful wife and baby... All the best and God Bless!
Hooooooly craaaaaaap, dude! Congrats, but get some sleeeeeeep. NOW, WHILE YOU STILL CAN!
Sorry for the outburst, it's just that my 2028 5* left tackle prospect has been a real jerk about the whole sleeping thing lately. Ive had about 5 hours of sleep since Friday, and about 45 total since June 2010.
That said, enjoy it. It goes so fast...
