things go poorly
QBForce twitter false alarm
Tate = THE_KNOWLEDGE.
You'd tell a 5-year old there's no Santa Claus, too. Spoiler.
So Tate will be twittering from the side lines? Or from the huddle?
his mom runs the Twitter account, i don't know if that will be relevant
His mom runs his Twitter account? Sheeesh
as shown on
[Assuming it's current-- Vlad is still listed.]
EDIT: MGoBlue PDF version still shows an either/or for 2nd and 3rd string, but it also still shows Vlad and lots more CBs than on the michigan.rivals list-- I was assuming the travel team limits the back-up bodies.
has Lewan starting at tackle over Huyge and that it was last updated on 8/27, I'm not gonna trust that depth chart at all.
I admit I was intrigued to see Lewan and Campbell moving up the chart... ["was" being the operative word, lest I spread more erroneous data]
If I was Rich, I would have a series of Tate and Denard trick plays. Did Tate practice this week? Tate really is a good YOUNG football player, would hate to lose him.
***After researching, I think it's most likely about Furman***
Coach said that Tate competed very hard this week and had a good week of practice.
IS STARTING TODAY!
Nothing against Tate, but it after last week it would be batshit crazy not to start Denard.
it would really FUCK with ND's head.
Special Tate only jerseys?
Miss Michigan is pregnant?
If I am not mistaken, this is the Furman Paladin's first game this season. I bet it is to announce that Chris Forcier is the starting QB for Furman. I would be shocked if it was about Tate.
90% chance you are correct, sir
Probably, should have said it was about Chris, but maybe that was giving too much away.
Didn't know that. I wish somebody would've posted this info more prominently and saved the message boards a lot of craziness.
I just checked and Furman's game is at 2pm, so we should find out soon enough.
A nugget of useful information in one of these crazy threads? Unpossible. I'm floored.
And the Forcier family gets even more attention.
If I'm the Michigan coaching staff, I'm telling these people to cool it on Twitter, shut down the website (or at least the "Hall of Shame), and quit talking to the press and creating distractions around this team. Period. Enough is enough.
I can't recall any family of a Michigan player who created this much hoopla around their kid. Not even the Hensons.
it just doesn't sit well. Nothing against the Forciers at all, but that website is f'ing bizarre.
(the following may not be popular - neg away if you feel you must)
That whole QBForce site is an embarrassment not only to their family but to the programs in which they are involved. They obviously do not realize how ridiculous it makes them look. They are analogous to a "pageant family" in the south. I don't fault Tate for his attitude issues. He was raised this way. I wish there I could like him but winning or losing, he is not a likable guy at this point in his young life. Kid needs to get some Molk wisdom stat.
I don't remember it being this bad with Jason. Maybe it's because he was never really expected to be the starter at Michigan, and it seemed all-smiles "sorry it didn't work out, but go make it happen somewhere else" on his way out the door when he transferred. But with Tate, from day 1, the family has been completely overwhelming. Heck, even before day 1, when they were posting all of the offer letters he was getting on their ridiculous website.
Typical hover-parents, probably the first ones on the coach's home phone the second he gets home from a game in which Tate didn't get enough playing time when he was growing up. Anybody who works with young people sees parents like that all the time. It should probably stop, though, when the kid is old enough to vote...
I agree, and it also explains to me why Tate was a bit aloof during the off season this year. He was home schooled and coddled so much by his overbearing/overprotective parents he's just a 19 year old kid getting away from his parents for the first time in his life and letting loose, probably too loose.
Whether or not he gets his starting job back, I hope he pulls it together. I'd hate to see him spiral out of control like so many other highly protected kids once they get a little independence.
Though, I must say, I'm getting pretty sick of the Forcier family shenanigans.
When I saw Molk make his comments about avoiding publicity, and how much he likes Denard for having the same attitude, it was obvious who he was also commenting on.
Pageant family — hadn't come across that expression before, but it says everything, doesn't it?
You are the highest MGoPoints earner to agree with me. I feel validated somehow.
They do seem a little odd, but I don't know - I don't have kids. From what I've seen, most parents go crazy when their kid manages to get his poop into the toilet. If my kid started a whole season at QB for U-M, I might be a little unbalanced, too. So I can appreciate the madness, but I agree with you as an outside observer - I'd like everyone to just be cool. Like Fonzie.
Normal people don't hire this guy to personally coach their children:
He has never eaten a Big Mac or an Oreo or a Ding Dong. When he went to birthday parties as a kid, he would take his own cake and ice cream to avoid sugar and refined white flour. He would eat homemade catsup, prepared with honey. He did consume beef but not the kind injected with hormones. He ate only unprocessed dairy products. He teethed on frozen kidney. When Todd was one month old, Marv was already working on his son's physical conditioning. He stretched his hamstrings. Pushups were next. Marv invented a game in which Todd would try to lift a medicine ball onto a kitchen counter. Marv also put him on a balance beam. Both activities grew easier when Todd learned to walk. There was a football in Todd's crib from day one. "Not a real NFL ball," says Marv. "That would be sick; it was a stuffed ball."
Both activities grew easier when Todd learned to walk.
Okay, the dietary stuff is weird but defensible, but stretching your one-month old son's hamstrings? WTF?
Maybe. Or maybe they just didn't hire him early enough? Plus, that diet needs more molecules.
I would go crazy if he would get his poop into the toilet.
I'm not sure which would be a bigger surprise for today: Tate hasn't travelled and has transferred, or Tate is starting.
Tate transferred to Notre Dame and will start against Michigan.
Now that I know it is his mother running the account,which I don't know how I missed that since I read every thread, this really isn't that big of a deal.
Coner is coming back, gonna slay the entire ND band and preform at halftime! Book it! ;D
He's gonna need a lot of chalk.
option than the ND band -- props to the coner!
kid doesn't even have an iPhone or iPad... he's rocking an iPod Touch? let's hope ND has an open WiFi Network!
It's an ad hoc wifi network, duh.
Maybe he is switching to defensive back.
if that's the case, then I KNOW he'll transfer eventually. /sarc
Seriously though, I'd hate to see Tate leave UM. He still has a role here, IMO.
I was gonna go with slot!
his own personal bench to sit on?
And Chris is starting for Furman. That's the big secret.
