optimism train and take the over.
over/under on weekend commitments
Hillary Duff engaged to U of M alum Mike Comrie. Im hopping on this optimism train since we are already at 1....kind of
you might consider adding halves to your line to prevent pushes
i will take the over, upvote me if i win, down if i lose.
EDIT: Lack of size joke fail.
I'm feeling three for some reason.
bonus (multiplier) for the fact that I sat here staring at your avatar for the better part of 5 minutes.
my damn shoulder hurts like hell which is making me grumpy,and grumpy for me means a pessimistic attitude. However, I just can't see 35 kids coming to the BIG HOUSE and not getting at least 2 commits. So over, definitely over !!
I'm going with the under. I would have set the line at 1/2 as I don't think Zettel or Beyer are ready to commit yet though I believe both eventually will. With the quality of kid that is going to be there I suspect some of them are going to want to take a couple of paid visits.
Then again, a verbal from someone unexpected may open the flood gates and we could get two or three. I would be really pleased if a certain sophomore LB gave us a verbal.
I think we will get 1 or 2. But who?
I think Zettel might, and I think we have a chance at Hayes. I have a feeling he will be very impressed even though he grew up a spartan fan.
If there's any justice in this world, we'll get Hayes this weekend.
Okay, sorry. But seriously, is he even visiting this weekend? He wasn't on Rivals list of visitors.
Tomvh put on twitter last night that he was.
I'm hoping that Brennen Beyer and Anthony Zettel join the fray this weekend.
Justice Hayes would be a nice get, too, but I don't see him dropping this soon, especially being a lifelong Spartan fan.
I wonder if the coaches are waiting to see what's up with Dee Hart before they go really hard after Hayes... Oh to be a fly on the wall of the recruiting war room
I'll be lame. I think we get zero or one.

what about Clutch's song 10001110101. Robot lords of Tokyo, smile taste kittens, did you not know that the royal hunting grounds are always forbidden.
oh, and I pick the over, I'm going with 3.5 commitments.
God i love that show. I randomly ran into Eugene, the landlord, last year and asked if the show was coming back? At the time, even he didn't know unfortunately.
HBO wanted them back, but Brett and Jemaine do not think that they have enough good material to make another season.

I think we get 5. 3 silent, 2 vocal and 1 murmur. Then the question becomes who gets Peaced and Barnsed which is never noble.
And hopefully for those that do commit, they continue to keep up on their school work and take their tests seriously so they don't get Draked.
I read this topic and immediately thought 1, so I will go push
I'm going to be at the game tonight, so I will start slipping Chilli's coupons to recruits. No way they can turn down a buy one get one free entree coupon.
and he is seriously P*SSED that you stumbled onto Texas's fullproof recruiting strategy to lock-up a class early.
What is "fullproof"? Does it have anything to do with bulimia?
"Psssh! I promise Lindsay Lohan won't be too chubby for the photo shoot. She's fullproof."
My gut reaction was - OVER!!! But I wonder if the coaches are going to be more conservative with offers this year knowing that they can only sign ~15 players or so. Then again, it would be nice to lock down a couple of guys that you really like early.
I think they'll sign two, one of which will have the internets a buzz with why they wasted a scholarship on someone like that so early......
They're not being that conservative with offers. They've already mailed out over 60 of them.
Magnus, is the banner on your site supposed to say Michigan Foosball?
I hope once RR gets our program back to dominance our recruiting goes as boring as UT. Lock up 12+ quality players early, then concentrate on the elite players going forward. One can dream...
is the function of Texas HS football size talent and Michigan HS football will never have that. Does Michigan regularly produce 12 high D1 caliber players yearly? Even if it did, what would be the odds that they all wanted to play at Michigan?
I can see it happening between Michigan and Ohio. If Michigan won 10 games last year, I would expect several commits today.
I agree with your statement. Texas has so many built-in advantages, probably more than any other school in the country. I don't think UM will ever enjoy the same results from their junior day like Texas. I was just saying it would be cool if they did.
I wonder how much weather plays into campus visits? I distinctly remember my visit to Mich on a day with weather very similar to this (sunny and brisk), and it just made the campus seem that much more surreal. On the other hand when I visited Duke, it was rainy an miserable. I know this this is sort of silly, but I can't help but believe that subconsciously it played a factor in the overall feeling of a college visit.
For that reason alone I say over!
I don't think we'll hear about any, although there could be 1-2 silent guys. We only have around 13 more spots.
The guys at Rivals are thinking there will be 15-17 spots in total.
Somebody has to be the grumpy pants here.
The momentum from NSD carries over, although I think it will only be 2
I gotta go with the push as well. If anything, I would lean to the under, though.
The opinion of the guys over at Rivals is that it's still too early in the process for many commitments. And the two most likely candidates to commit, Zettel and Beyer, are both likely to wait a little longer. I'm sure that both will commit, but as far as this weekend is concerned, it might not happen. Besides, I'd rather it be under right now anyway. It's highly unlikely that we'll get any major prospects (i.e. Depriest, Arnett, Thomas, etc.) to commit this early in the process and I'd like to fill up our class with top level talent. I'm well aware that Thomas isn't very likely and I know the story with Arnett liking the pro-style offense and his wait and see approach. I'm just using those prospects as examples. Zettel and Beyer will both be nice gets, but again, that's really the only top level talent I could see committing this weekend and even they are likely to wait a little while longer.
With the Big House looking complete, a gorgeous sunny day in A2, a packed house at Crisler and a victory against Penn State... I think we'll get two emotional commits.
Since I have absolutely no idea, I'm going for 3 in honor of the 16 threes the hoops team is going to drop on PSU's head tonight.
It's either 3 or 16, and 16 seems a little optimistic. Just sayin.
I'll go with the over and say we get 2
The real question is how much shame should we all feel that are topics were so bad we actually forced Magnus to make his own post. He's usually a counterpuncher the Mgoblogs Jimmy Connors.
I'm not sure how even posted does he have enough points??
Scout is reporting that something like 31 prospects made it up, so I like our odds of getting at least one. Either way, here's to a good day of basketball and good times had by all.
I'm going with one.
I think Beyer and Zettel hold off until the spring game, and that nobody that gets an offer commits immediately.
With over 30 prospects in A2, someone will be all in today. Most of them really should take multiple visits and not commit unitl they have looked at all their options.
Hayes is gonna have fun with his recruitment, he will take his 5 visits down south anf his recruitment will eb a rollercoaster ride. Sorry to make any of you sad but he's not going to come to michigan.
Yes he's not coming to Michigan. There is 0% chance that he will commit to U-M. Unless you know him or have talked to him or you are him, then shut up. He has specifically cited interest in Michigan before.
I'm hoping that we end up getting numerous commitments out of the Junior Day.
Kid apparently committed today, anyone hear about this?
No, Mr. Conway. Haven't heard about it.
Magnus, care to tell us more about this kid? I searched his name on Rivals and got a blank profile that just tells us he's a WR from Birmingham.
This is about all I know.
he seemed to lack elite speed. loved the fact that he went up and won balls from defenders. also used his hands very well, didnt use his body to catch the ball.
Check out his scout profile (for basketball).
If you need anymore inside info hit me up :).
It seems like many of these guys are begining to see more interest outside Mich.
The class will be small anyhow...I think UM needs to be more sure big bodies aren't coming before taking lesser names.
I also have no inside info BTW.
Zero...it's what I'm feeling.
already gave his verbal today
I didn't realize he was there (needless to say he was not in the names I had seen listed)...should have thought to have checked. That only makes sense in retrospect. Let's make that a push.
its cool its cool
You joined today for this, or you had been banned earlier, and came back. Answer the fucking question.
during the basketball game around half time...wat the hell dude? ur the second person that has asked me if i had been banned before. why? swear to god ive never been on here before.
So a Texas/Michigan State fan comes over and talks shit. Get the fuck out. Head north bout 25 miles, and then west till you die, then you are there. See ya. Piss off, Sparty.
im no fucking spartan fan jesus christ shut the fuck up. notice i can spell? therefore im not a spartan fan. im not talking shit. im trying to have discussions about football. whats the point of a blog? to have discussions about _______. in this case: football. im doing it, u should too. seriously where the HELL did u come up with the idea that i was a spartan fan....so wrong.
Because you have been trashing a 16? year old high school kid that picked Michigan. Any other questions?
You're confused. He was largely defending Conway.
4:39 - doesnt seem to have elite speed at all
looks like hes got great hands tho. doesnt use his body to catch the ball, always a plus. also goes up and plucks the ball out of the air. really his best skill. looks like calvin johnson when going up to get the ball. the film doesnt exactly show him running any routes(other than the one deep in) so u cant really evaluate him there. could have deceptive speed
6:57 - hes probably 190-195 i agree he seems bigger than 185
ya hes got b10 skills for sure. catching the ball with his hands is a great habit to have.
maybe u should do some research before u accuse someone who u have no idea about.
Congrats on spelling. A for that.
Obviously he doesn't follow the predetermined MGoBlog posting norms because he hasn't used MGoBlog before. Maybe if you could actually deal with someone who has a different opinion than you instead of freaking out and accusing him of being someone else (what is this, fourth grade?) this wouldn't be an issue.
FWIW, I asked him to post here because he knows quite a bit about football and brings a different perspective. You don't exactly have the right to tell someone else to leave, which is why most people stay away from statements like that. Because they make the people that post them look like a moron.
Who the fuck are you to own the board with the sterling track-record of 70 points? Chill the fuck out.
With all due respect, I don't need to get 'cheap' points like you and your crew, the Dictators of all right and wrong with Michigan
Athletics. I've been here longer than you, in every way possible. So I'll chill the fuck out when I want. Thanks.
