At the bottom of the article Jonathan Hilliman says that the coaches told him that they are no longer recruiting the RB position.
RB recruiting done?
That surprises me.
Pretty sure this is just his way of throwing his competition off the trail.
"Nothin' to see here, guys. Move along. Let's all just camp at Rutgers and Penn State and stuff."
What did you manage to accomplish with the extra time you saved by writing "RB" instead of Running Back?
He washed the dishes, did two loads of laundry and cut the grass, so piss off!!!
Let's please translate british slang into its proper American term. Have some balls and say fuck off, or don't say it at all.
Which will now conclude in me being voted down for the duration of this thread; which really brings into question my desire to write this reply.
Pinkman'd? Need I say get off my yard?
Did you really not know what he meant by RB?
He saved me .01 seconds that I can now use to do nothing, instead of reading. If more people were as committed to saving time as the OP, we would have world peace and I would be sleeping with Kate Upton.
And by reading this "Old Man Yells at Cloud" segment I have wasted 30 seconds, putting me at a net time of -29.99 seconds. Now who's wasting who's time?
I think we may have found Mr. Rager's more subdued alter-account...
drink and reply on message boards
Because you ARE just being a little bitch acting ike you know everything about football. So thank you John Madden for telling us what RB stands for.
And fuck off. Happy?
What did you manage to accomplish with the extra time you saved by writing "piss off" instead of urinate off?
Probably the same thing you accomplished by omitting the ":" after "I can't help but wonder."
You've proven that the colon is the second most wrongly placed symbol in America. I suppose I should be grateful you didn't use a semicolon.
I just correctly used my colon reading this thread.
how familiar are you with the man's colon?
Jeez you obviously used your real name to create your profile.
I hate to out people's real identity, but I'll make an exception here. His real name is Tom Riddle.
What you could have accomplished in place of making a useless post like this one.
Yes, because I've never seen useless snark on this blog before. Useless snark is like currency around here.
The same things you accomplished when you used "can't" instead of cannot.
Pickin the finest of nits, aren't we?
WHo is that?
Is that JerseyBlue? His wife? Daughter? The girl from Accounting that he stalks in the parking lot? Teo's new girlfriend?
I think it's Fournette or bust for this class. We have a pretty good position in Damien Harris and the Webber kid from Cass tech for next year so it's not out of the question that they told him that in my opinion.
Shouldn't surprise anyone. That rumor has been out for a while. Basically it is Fournette or bust, with Ballage being still recruited as a RB/athlete.
Story was updated at 6:30; unfortunately I don't think it was triggered by a great Fournette visit.
Coaches were sick of all these RBs cancellng visits. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Hasn't it kind of been Fournete or bust lately? There's absolutely no way we'd turn down Fournette so I assume it means Fournette or bust at this point
Or a linebacker and convert him to a running back, right?
so I'm not reminded of that game ever, that would be an improvement
This was his response to the offense going 3-and-out yet again, leaving his Defense on the field too long.
RB wasn't a dire need this year so if we were going to take another back it might as well had been one we just couldn't refuse like Fournette. Otherwise, with the position we're in for Harris & Weber in 2015 that scholarship is better suited for a defensive player in this class.
Is it possible Fitz may not be able to go this year and he gets a medical RS?
Not sure UM (Urban Meyer) is as good as perceived in his recruiting. Hand is not a fan of UM.
From the article:
"I only had one day at Rutgers and a whole weekend at Ohio State. And I might have seen more at Ohio State because I was there longer. But I got just as much, if not more information at Rutgers than I did that whole weekend," he said.
that's just stupid
Who the hell abbreviated something and then types what he abbreviated immediately after?
I wonder how much time you saved typing UM instead of Urban Meyer.
More seriously, that's a really bad abbreviation on a Michigan message board. Urbs is only 2 letters longer (and notice how much time I saved by typing 2 instead of two!) and much less confusing.
It's awesome how we are now constantly in on the top NJ kids. NJ being "B1G country" will help even more. We need to build up the momentum before Penn State regains consciousness and tries to reclaim their natural recruiting ground.
Also, don't sleep on Rutgers. They will become a factor in the B1G.
I have a hard time believing Rutgers will ever be in the top 5 of the B1G unless Penn State stops progressing and Staee completely falls off into the abyss
yeah but they get great helmets!
I don't know if BB and FB are any different on redshirts, but there have been some 6 year players lately in the BIG in the last few years. Hummel from Purdue seems like he played forever!
I dont think he can get one because he played in too many games. Gardner got one because of the limited PT with that back injury. Fitzie Toussie is a different story - as he started a majority of the games before going down after the midpoint of the season.
The guy wasn't wondering if he could get a redshirt for last year, he was wondering if he wasn't 100% healthy and ready to go this year, could he get a medical redshirt for this year if it turns out he can't go. Now I don't thnk that is going to happen because all reports seem to suggest he is progressing nicely, but in the event he doesn't play this year because he's still hurting I believe he could still get a medical redshirt regardless of the fact that he redshirted in the past.
in getting Harris and Weber next year
From what I've read they are going all in on Leonard, dropped hilliman, and recruiting ballage as an athlete. From an interview with another teams pay site, it really sounds like ballage is trending strong for Michigan. As long as he doesn't get an Oregon offer Michigan will be in good position for his signature.
I would have liked Hilliman as a fallback in case Fournette said no. He looks like a good RB prospect (and, given his offer list, I wonder why the recruiting services and the coaches see things so differently) who would fit in well with a POWER offense.
But he said he wanted to commit the second week of August, i.e. way before Fournette would be ready. Given what we took last year and who we have a shot at next year, I'd rather the chance at Fournette even if we end up with nothing at RB than getting Hilliman if it meant we had no room for Fournette. Especially with a LB recruit who could be converted to RB if need be also being recruited.
All this talk of time wasted when reading non-abbreviated words, we're wasting countless hours reading full length words when we should be abbreviating EVERYTHING
THINK OF ALL THE MILLISECONDS WE'RE WASTING RIGHT NOW. THINK OF THE CHILDREN
Of course, one of the first steps before improving the process is understanding value in the eyes of the customer. So, if speed is more valuable than comprehension, I fully support the use of "UM" for Urban Meyer.
I think we'd take one more. Lock 'n load...
