would be nice get
Poggi to decide Monday at 10AM EST
Well now, this is interesting. Coincidence with 48 hours talk?
And with ACE saying our week day could start off with a BANG
Start off with a BANG! Poggi has Bangs. It's all so obvious now!
be construed as a posbang, no?
I don't see how your sister and I correlate to a Poggi commitment...
And with ACE saying our week day could start off with a BANG
Oh, the beloved triple post!
It was so good I just had to post it three times.
Hole has changed the tide in the rivalry...
I have? (That's my last name...)
Hole is your last name? I really hope your first name doesn't start with an A.
It's pronounced "Ho-lay." It's French.
Courtney Love says yeah sure why not
FWIW, there is a Hello Poggi page created already (you get access denied, though). Not true for Treadwell or Green...
Haha, there are also access-denied pages for EJ Levenberry, Bri'onte Dunn, and Josh Garnett - but not for Stefon Diggs or Alex Kozan.
The servers are still haunted by the ghosts of recruiting losses past...
I think ace's hint in the other thread that we could relax for the weekend but the week may start with a bang just became a give away
everyone set your atomic clocks within the millisecond. as I know we will all be up all night in nervous anticipation, be sure to have a few cups if coffee on hand (or energy drinks- whatever your pleasure). and pleasure, I know it may sound tempting, but PLEASE don't end your lives if he foes elsewhere, even if the pain seems too much to bear.
Funny, I just now connected your message with your avatar. Something wiccan this way just came. In the words of the good witch from the north in Wizard of Oz, Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
The only confusing aspect is the part about Ohio fans not being happy about it; that piece of information pointed to other players.
Easiest explanation, if in fact Poggi is the silent commit: either we read too much into the 11W tweet, or the tweeter was mistaken.
Or Ohio fans are being ignorant like always and thought that Urban would Meyer Poggi to tsio.
Or Alex was trying to mess with us.
I said the same thing in the other thread, but I didn't get the sense that the 11w guy necessarily knew anything -- just that he was speculating like we were here (probably that it was Green or maybe Poggi).
Regardless, if it's Poggi, damn, that's a good get.
When he said buckeyes would be upset, he didn't say because it was a player they were in on, it could be that they'd be upset because it's another good player committing to UM. We'd be upset if OSU had gotten Jaylon Smith, not because we thought he'd pick us, but because he's really good.
I'm so excited! plz Poggi, Treadwell, Green, another 5*, come on board!!
I love Mondays!
Cam Gordon is a cross between Charles Woodson and Vincent Smith?
Or Ace said that multiple people could have been right meaning multiple committs.
The writing is on the wall with this one fellas! Poggi is going blue!
This is good news..but i think almost everyone was hoping it was green.
Why on earth would we hope that Poggi goes green?
Now we all can see you dont know how to read.
This brings up a good point. Would Derrick Green have to change his name to Derrick Blue if he commits?
As long as he runs for 150 yards every year against State, I can live with him being named Green.
Yes and when the State fans yell "Go Green," we can interject by yelling "He is going! He is going for a buck and a half!"
Ricky Green – that's great! I remember getting that issue of SI in the mail when I was 16. Man that was a fun team to watch. I was crushed when they got upset by UNC Charlotte and Cornbread Maxwell in a regional final.
and your posts deserve upvotes simply because of your username/avatar.
lol the "green" he's referring to is a player not MIstake errr i
mean MI State
Didn't think I'd have to point this out, but that was sarcasm...
Just like I tell my students all the time...jokes are no fun when I have to explain them after!
Shit, I knew he was going to North Texas all along.
Not me, I'd actually prefer Poggi over Green, albeit only by a little. Green looks Iike a great RB, but I really like Smith. We've only brought in so many true DTs in the last few years, and only one so far in this class. Poggi makes me very excited.
I think DT is a bigger area of need at the moment than RB. It will be great if we end up with both though :)
Agreed. They are both very good players. If it is Poggi, then Green and Treadwell are the most important uncomitted players left on our board, with other guys like Fuller, Mathis, McQuay potential luxury commitments.
I appreciate that you prefaced with "this is good news," but I don't understand how any Michigan fan could express any disappointment about this. Plus, in terms of need and likely contribution, I'd argue that Poggi is a bigger get than Green. (Don't get me wrong, though... I'd love to get Green, too.)
People just are all hot for green right now. Becuase he picked up a fifth star on rivals. Poggi will add depth, which never hurts on the D-line.
This class is special.
I guess we'll have to stay buckled up all weekend.
i think he's feeling the pressure and he's goin blue
Hopefully Hurst has started a domino effect and Poggi, Treadwell, and Green all commit within the week. IMO we get Poggi and Treadwell, Green is a wildcard.
Lock. And a Poggi commit wouldn't upset Ohio fans too much. I wouldn't be surprised if we get both Poggi and Green or if we just got one of them? Either way, we end up ahead.
Maybe he said that because Ohio fans have been bragging up their DL commits have been better than ours and concede that our OL recruits are better. Now Hoke & co are showing them that we will out recruit them on both sides of the line
Yes, he didn't specify why they would be upset. We are talking about crazy ohio people here...it could be anyone.
said the middle or the end of june,i think we should ban this guy from posting on MICHIGAN topics.
Most of us value his opinion...isn't that what a board like this is about? an opinion? Just like you have every right to post your opinion that you think RDT sucks, he has every right to post his opinion, which many of us like to hear.
I like that RDT posts here, too. People take his "insider information" way too seriously around here, though. I see no reason to believe that the guy knows any more than posters here who follow recruiting closely. RDT's value is that he can share the Alabama perspective - like any of us could share the Michigan perspective on an Alabama board - not that he's some kind of insider with incredible information.
Personally I really like his posts and enjoy the unique perspective and insight he seems to provide. That said, I don't really get all the love notes he gets on here. Seems a little over the top, and I don't know why he deserves it more than some other posters. Again, I like the guy as much as anyone, but its just kind of weird that he's so controversial. I don't know why his posts should garner such extreme reactions one way or the other.
what are we supposed to act like its a joke??
Like I said earlier, I have no problem with Rolldamntide. I like the intelligent users we have that are fans of other teams. People just need to realize that this guy does not have any inside sources. He has not given us any information that I could not already access from any of the major recruiting websites.
Any source is fallible, inside or otherwise. The folks he knows speculate just like anyone else. It's nice to know that the folks down south can be just as wrong as anyone else.
Agreed. He's just relaying what the word is among the high school coaching network in the south. Is it better than Rivals or Scout or TomVH, probably not. It is more informed than some guy sitting in his mom's basement in Ypsilanti? Yes.
It's fun to hear their perspective, but it's far from perfect. So relax people, if you don't think it's worth anything, IGNORE his posts.
This totally points toward Poggi but I had completely given up hope of him coming here and I was assuming he was going to Bama. Maybe by giving up hope I unjinxed it
Please give up hope on a national championship
I've given up hope on 10 consecutive undefeated seasons.
Dammit, give up hope on about 50 more after those ten.. Most of us should be around for awhile.
I hearby give up all hope of ever hooking up with Kate Upton!
On another note former LB Chris Graham is in line to be the starting MLB for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL.
Follow him on and twitter to show him love
As opposed to the Ottawa Rough Riders
However this class NEEDS Treadwell and a difference making RB! With the last two classes of OL recruits and Sugar Shane how are we not landing the big time play makers!!?? It's gonna happen!
You realize signing day is in February right?
But we didn't really get it in our last class either, so I'm jonsing! Maybe Darboh!?
Is pretty good, by the way
Rawls, bowling ball- tough to bring down. With the OL haul of the last two years, hopefully many RBs will look great.
Yeah it's redundant due to "Dextrose" Dawson.
Could we possibly be getting two commits on Monday?
The official fruit of Michigan Football!
You're struggling tonight my man. Might be a good idea to slow down on the koolaid.
And Ace said recruiting would really die down in the Hello: Post.
So do we buckle up in anticipation of more Michigan Recruiting Dominance (tm), or panic over Hoke's inability to draw in the top prospects? Pretty sure there's no middle ground.
Does this mean we have to reinstate THE PARTY ROOM?
Didn't he (it?) say Anzalone?
Where the hell did that ass clown go anyway. He ran his mouth for like two months straight, and then nothing.
LOL.....your job!! MY SEATBELT IS OFFICIALLY FASTENED!! GO BLUE!!
My statement on Poggi last night was what was being said on campus. If people recall, I said he was a Michigan lean on several occasions. Anybody who reads what I write will tell you that.
Dude, don't worry about defending yourself. Keep posting. You give opinions that are well-couched in disclaimers and whatnot, and everyone knows they are just opinions. It's a tough business to predict. We 'preciate ya.
I know I should never NEVER go down this road, but Michael Scarn, you're lookin like Ron Swanson . . .
I just know I am going to hate that I brought this up, but I so couldn't help it . . . .
And yes, I totally dig both characters . . . .
I put it in the wrong spot...oops!
Love hearing your updates and opinions, keep them coming!
Hold me RDT.
People who don't get you don't deserve you RDT. You just keep running free.
My new favorite poster: Witz57. I was still cracking up from Dextrose Dawson.
RDT, although you may have some naysayers, I've gotta say I think you are by far the most belov-id contributor here. The way your posts soften the hearts and minds of the most frequent wisecrackers on here (including myself, with my experience in reading my comments), can be most eloquently be described as---disarming and edge-of-the-seat interesting as when grandpa told stories about way back when. From Tallahassee, keep the updates comin Haus!!
Your opinions and insight is appreciated by myself and many others. Don't worry about haters. If we are getting Poggi....it will be a wonderful Monday. Alabama won't have to fret for too long I'm sure.
Mark it down jerky!
ugh all this positive talk on the boards always jinxes us! This would be one of the bigger head to head battles we could win from this class, would love for it to happen. This one will hurt if it doesnt tho cause of all the positive signs. Probably somewhere in between the EJ Levenberry - Garnett spectrum
I hope that helps us get him. I mean not get him.
Any chance Poggi is our 5-tech recruit for this class?
It could be, but it probably depends on who else we get. Since we aren't high on many other DTs but we're still in good shape for a few solid SDEa, I think Poggi ends up a 3-tech.
Hardreck is due to visit some time this month and he is a solid DT prospect. About the same size as Hurst and with a good name for someone who can wreak havoc on the inside. No highlights yet but his recruitment seems to be blowing up.
Poggi is perfect for the 3/5Tech type that Mattison likes to rotate within the line.
that in one of the very early posts here about Poggi, it was said he wanted to pursue an engineering degree...
If he is serious at all about the education side of things, he'd call Saban right now and tell him thanks but no thanks. Granted, I have no doubt Saban can coach this kid up to NFL status, but so can Greg Mattison. All he has to say to the kid is I coached Ray Lewis.
I believe the Poggi family is quite familar with Greg Mattison and his exploits.
Poggi can be so good. Hes not just a guy that Alabama wants, but a guy that Alabama wants at TE, meaning he's got some mean athleticism to go with his size.
The funny thing, he reminds me a lot of Shallman as a prospect. They're very similar in size and build, and they're both being recruited on offense or the DL by different schools.
If we end up with a DT or DE that could be a TE in AL...i would be cool with it.
The only thing I am interested "in AL" is "poking Smot" with Nick Fairley
I would love for it to be Treadwell, Green, or Poggi... But I think it would be especially sweet if it was Anzalone. I don't even know if he even has a commitable offer.... But I would sure love another Kalis moment and a slap in the face for osu
He does not have a commitable offer nor has he visited Michigan. We told him we were full at the position. The likelihood that we get him are extremely remote. I'm sure there are other players with commitable offers from both schools who can serve as the slap in the face players.
JUNE AND WE STILL HAVE NO 2014 COMMITS!
And what about Jayru Campbell? Why haven't we locked him down yet??? This is...unacceptable
Why not move straight from 2013 to 2015? Or 2016 for that matter? Why have we not locked down our 2030 class? Hoke be slippin'.
but regardless of what position we put him at he needs to add some bulk
Would you recommend he put all the necessary weight on by Monday, or spread it out over the course of the next 1.5-2.5 years? Next question- What should he do about his height? Should he put on a few inches, stay the same, or grow shorter?
NEEDS MOAR ARMLENGTH
There is a crazy stretching machine in the fire swamp. Let's get him there today so he can be back for his press conference tomorrow.
Or swing by and see Miracle Max.
Anything in the fire swamp to be afraid of? R.O.U.Ses, perhaps.
I heard Willy Wonka has a good one too. Just ask Mike TV
Fezzick grew out of the three tech
Poggi's film is really good, but it is surprising that it resulted in his ranking. Did he dominate at some camps to earn the rankings?
More importantly for our needs, we need early contributors on the DL. Looks to fit that bill. Would love to have another RVB!!!
Unless something changes dramatically he's a virtual lock to redshirt...
greatest 2 day D- Line ( 3 and 5 techs not ends)haul that I have ever witnessed if we land Hurst Jr. and Poggi back to back. Man in 2 to 3 years this defense under Mattison is gonna be scary good. I can't wait to see all these guys when the defense is all 4 stars or higher.
Sam Webb s show should be quite interesting on Monday. Here's hoping he spends a great deal of time talking about a positive "gut feeling." I haven't listened in forever, but I might have to tune in.
You know you can just hit the podcast and selectively listen to whatever you want; and without having to listen to that awful and annoying Lloyd Ganton Retirement Center commercials. I only podcast now thanks to that commercial.
I have trouble with the podcast stopping after about 5 minutes. Every single time I try it that's what happens. Anybody else with the same problem?
The WTKA iPhone app is basically unusable.
Yes, that drives me nuts. The podcasts use to only last about 2 min, now it's about 6-8 min. So, getting better, but still sucks. I've posted comments on their Facebook page and gave the app a bad review. I wouldn't think it would be too hard to fix it
Eleven Warriors has a post "Quick Bits 6/2" that says Poggi is the next Michigan commit. Did he just let the cat outta the bag? http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/football/2012/06/quick-bits-62-jaylon-smith-to-announce-a-little-after-5pm?page=1
All of a sudden the Beav is claiming that there is NOT a decision time set, and that anybody claiming there is is grasping for straws and possibly ruining Michigan's chances by severly pissing off the family.
In my experience with the Beav, this reads more like: my site didn't break the story, so we're gonna sling mud at the sites that did. I like that site for the information, but his whole attitude drives me crazy. He constantly accuses other sites of trying to drum up views, then he goes and goes the same thing twice over. Here's hoping this is just another Beaver temper tantrum.
Is dead! Sorry Justin!
You're completely right. If Scout doesn't break a story, "Another site broke it prematurely and upset the recruit/parents."
You can't type TomVH, Rivals, or even MGoBlog on that site without the censors blocking it out. He's insecure as shit. If Sam Webb ever decided to go to a different site, Scout would crash and burn. I was really hoping when 24/7 was getting off the ground that they were going to steal Sam.
Have their been any recent visits or recent contact that we can look into?
Why now? I know he kept saying "soon" or "this month"...just wondering if there is anything that may have cemented a verbal.
I think he visited Bama a few weeks ago, and Michigan a few weeks before that. I just saw that line on 11W and was confused because I thought it was supposed to be hush hush. It says: Henry Poggi set to make his college decision Monday @ 10am.He is the next Michigan commit. I'm not completely buying into it until Ace, or Sam, or Tremendous says its GO TIME.
Well, I guess we just show up on the internets on Monday at 10am and see what happens. If it's nothing then you can just go back to work.
I don't think tthis guy knows anything more than the rest of us. He's just saying that because it seems likely and he wants to calm all the OSU fans down about it potentially being Green.
Hoagie or froggie?
Which is it!?!?
My work will frown upon dallying on the interwebs while I'm supposed to be working. So I'll bring my laptop to the bathroom around 10 a.m. proclaiming digestive issues
"The prevailing opinion is that Poggi will be commit #20 for Brady Hoke and add to an already outstanding recruiting class."
