Biff should really take a look at the recruiting rankings..
Biff should really take a look at the recruiting rankings..
What's that supposed to mean? Start providing cash, women, cars, tats?
Damn double post
He knows Urban doing some crooked stuff
A) Dude's name is Biff
B) Is this really the type of Helicopter dad you want around your program? Craig James anyone?
C) An adult male responds to the name "Biff"
D) I didn't realize Kentucky, Tennessee, and Auburn were such juggernauts last year compared to the bottom teams of any other conference
E) Geography anyone? Most of the top players are in the south
F) Biff. LOL.
This is ridiculous.
Leave the kid's dad alone...please return to RCMB or MLive where this crap belongs.
I don't have much time to read MGoBlog anymore but with comments like these I will continue to make time to do just that. I've never laughed so hard from a comment since I started reading. This is how I picture Mr. Poggi
Game set and match.
Alright everyone, take a deep breath and think about what you're going to say before you comment. He IS STILL a Michigan commit, we do not know all of the details.
Michigan need to put that nice guy crap aside and start being tuff in recruiting
He was tweeting back and forth with David Dawson about how he was chillin and gettin ready for Michigan.
What else would you expect but a smokescreen...froma KGB sleeper agent!!!
And he was actively recruiting a couple guys at the UA All-American game. This visit seems fishy, but there has been plenty of evidence of him sticking to his M commitment.
has 14 tweets and is following 11 people..it doesn't look very legit
Gilman football, Tim Sullivan, and his sons follow that account though.
I never trust an egg on Twitter.
But apparently he is not very twitter inclined .... or drunk .. Took him 3 tweets to get the Big Ten recruiting comment out correctly
was following Lennay Kekua on Twitter...
Made. My. Day.
Follows the account .. I would say it's safe to say that it is his dad's account
To be fair, if there were a spoof/parody/imposter account about me or one of my family/friends, I'd be compelled to follow it.
That's a really spastic Twitter account.
I'm thinking he still winds up in the Maize and Blue when it's all said and done.
This is not how I wanted to start my day.
We find out who wants to be here and who just wants cars and twins. Virtue> Victories
But on the bright side, that would mean Shane is our top-ranked recruit again.
While some of us are a bit disappointed in how in how this class is shaping up relative to how it started, there are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Our program is all of 2 years removed from the 3-year fiasco that was RR's tenure and the process that left us essentially without any real 2011 class. Ending up with a top 10 class after that is still pretty impressive.
2. Skill position stars. Sure we all would have loved a treadwell or Isaac level player. And we will be sorely disappointed if we don't land green in 19 hours and 38 minutes. But, reality check: for the past 4-5 years, these kids knew Michigan as a team on which Denard was the entire offense, RBs did virtually nothing (yes, fitz had a decent 2011, but it's not like he was a top 15 RB), and aside from a few hemmingway catches, the vertical passing game didn't exist. That's been a widely held perception of our team since these kids were in junior high school. We all made fun of MSU thinking of itself as receiver U, but in recent years, they have featured mote star wr talent than us. So, I can somewhat understand why these kids are not choosing Michigan. We need to change the perception, and I think that this will happen next year with a full year of running a more traditional offense with devin.
3. Competing with the SEC. If poggi drops us for bama, it will suck but at the same time, it is hard to blame the coaches when the sec schools have such a decided built in recruiting advantage. Put aside what I believe to be widely acknowledged improper recruiting practices, the weather is amazing, the girls are smoking hot and the schools get more ESPN love than we have seen in a decade. Being features on 2-3 gameday games a year and playing in primetime almost every week matters. Doesn't hurt that Bama has not only won a get titles recently, but their entire roster seems richer drafted on day 1 annually. Again, we can whine about the unfair advantages, the oversigning and the rest, but these things exist and will always put us at a disadvantage in recruiting.
Ultimately, I think that as hoke builds line depth, gets a somewhat more mature (upperclass) team and installs hosnfull system, we will be back to regularly going to b10 championship games, which will help recruiting, which will help us win more, which will help recruiting . . .
a coaching change and NCAA sanctions and it has not hurt their recruiting one bit.
I'm sorry, but excuses don't really cut it in big time football these days. If we lose Poggi and Green goes elsewhere we will have only a couple top 100 recruits under most of the rankings (Scout seems like an outlier) which is far behind the top programs. Hell even PSU has 3 top 100 guys and they are a tire fire.
Depth is great but at some point you need difference makers. Just rewatch the South Carolina game if you don't agree.
Ohio State had one bad season, and prior to that they were Big Ten Champs like 6 years in a row. And that bad season was only because they had their coach leave 3 months before the season was supposed to start, the Upperclass QB didn't pan out as a Game Manager, and the Freshman QB couldn't handle it all.
So their situation isn't really comparable to ours, and of course their recruiting would pick up right where they left off
GO HOME, BIFF. YOU ARE DRUNK.
and he is still following a bunch of UM recruits. If he is decommitting he sure is going undercover to do so.
I don't think it's a question of whether Henry wants to come to UM. It's more of whether his dad wants him to. And besides, Dawson was saying Go Blue a ton like the day before he decommited.
I know for certainty that Poggi (and Biff) will do one of the following:
1. Stick with his original commitment to Michigan
2. Pick another school
Ha, that Twitter count is weird as hell.
Oh, who gives a shit?!? A bama site poster is already equating Poggi & Dad as the Cushman's from Jerry McGuire for Pete's sake (word stronger than oak, Sugar being Saban, etc). How arrogrant and hollow do you have to be to do that? If he stays here: Muppets and great. If he goes to Bama he probably always wanted to and it's his life so who cares? Love to have him but not if he decides his life is better off there. As for Green, another kid I'd love to have! Muppets and great all around if so. If not, who cares? Board will melt down like a nuke disaster but who honestly is so pathetic that they'd lose sleep at night or let it effect them personally? MAYBE 1% of us have met or spoken to these recruits. You don't know them. Why care? Let Poggi visit Bear Bryant & Saban for all I give a shit, haha. Those who stay will be champions. Those who don't may or may not still have success in life. I'll personally care IF we have to go the SEC route to win. I'll care when urban truly starts turning osu into an SEC North team, forcing our hand to get shady or be an honest relic. Until then, great to get both but it's their life. Let them go or do whatever and the more we all pine and beg and hang on every tweet (ffs) the more these kids will do this stuff. Let kids, other human beings, live their life. That said, I love my school and want us to have elite everything....but not at the cost of "doing it SEC style". I'd rather lose than scam, lie and cheat.
That is too much common sense. You need to panic more.
I may just re-think how I live my life after reading this. I've clearly been living a lie
"the unexamined life isn't worth living"
Not cool what Biff said about the B1G, his son Jim is still an Iowa LB. If it's really his twitter.
So Biff is talking up the SEC, implying that Ohio does it right, and telling the coaches that they're going on a business trip? Can't imagine this will end too well.
Well we have chased them off for sure if they read this thread,
Because we're concerned when one out beat recruits is visiting another school? I would imagine a big time coach has a pretty thick skin to fans.
Has anyone thought that maybe the poggi's are just using the official to cut down some of the costs of making the trip to Alabama? And maybe they have talked to Hoke about this and he is ok with it.
I wouldn't believe one tweet from that account. Are you serious.
The coaches may not know about this visit.
WE know about it, and the coaches probably follow this stuff a lot closer than we do.
