"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Royce Jenkins-Stone tweets about visiting Michigan today
Gotta wonder how many times Mattison's gonna use that line.
Whoa, take that shit elsewhere, pederast...
"probably that pederast Hannahan"
It stops working. For safeties he has "You're the next Ed Reed" and if he over uses Ray Lewis he can always use terrell suggs. I wonder if he has used Haloti Ngata yet on Defensive Tackles
Hopefully people don't confuse that Twitter account for actually being Brady Hoke; it's not.
You are correct sir. Hoke was just quoted on the front page of MGoBlog saying he won't ever use twitter and basically everyone else can just deal with it. So that's got me wondering, if someone puts up a twitter account pretending to be you (uses your pic, etc), can't you file for that to be taken down?
Come on RJS - you know you want to be a wolverine.
Just curious.. Is it possible to BKFinest a quote?
Go ahead and die. Ross and his family loved the visit to Michigan this weekend. I'm sure RJS did as well. He may ultimately choose a different school, so fucking what, he loved the visit, he loved Mattison, he loved Hoke, If he feels that another school is a better fit, so be it. We gave a fantastic recrutiing visit, that's as much as you can do.
OMG, you are one of my favorite posters. Just in case you care . . .
Thank you sir. The feeling is mutual. Before the great Malware disaster of 2011 destroyed the Ultra MGoBlog Chrome Extension, your comments even had fancy yellow highlighting and everything.
...You're not sending a text message. You are posting on a blog full of people who aren't 13 year-olds. Use punctuation where appropriate. Capitalize where appropriate. STFU when appropriate, or please stay away.
iz dat kewl?!?!
What the hell are you talking about? You have to be about 14 years old, I hope you are anyway. That would explain all of your posts..... I take that back 14 year olds would be ashamed.
Brian please, I beg you, bring back the negbangs that count for something. This site has gone to hell in a handbasket ever since the point system was shut down. The trolls have no fear anymore.
Imaginary +1 to you sir, my thoughts exactly. We at least need some mods throwing down the banhammer on retarded posters.
Yessir Kal, Mods need to start dropping the hammer on errryone up in here. Imaginary +1 back to you good sir.
Amen my friend.
Brian, for all that's good in the world, re-enable the "democracy of the neg".
At times this board is getting downright unreadable with the amount of trolls that have sprouted since negbombs quit counting. My own time wasted on Mgblog has gone down so much that it's showing up in my productivity at work!
It's an indication of what the outside world would be like if police could only deliver sternly worded reprimands instead of actually being able to arrest anybody.
I'm sure you think you're probably pretty clever which is the saddest part of this whole thing.
Good news, RJS is my number one wish in Michigan at this point. Let's hope coach Mattison lives up to Urban's words as the best recruiter in the country!
After speaking to your parents this weekend, I'm fairly certain your parents wish they aborted you.
Are you certain they did not?
Are you ever sober when you post?
I AM THE NEXT RAY LEWIS !

Let he who is without grammar/spelling errors cast the first stone...I believe you meant consistently

I hope the tweet is a good sign and that we are moving up his board.
There is so much time between now and NSD 2012 that getting excited or trying to figure out what a tweet means is going to drive me nuts...and I'll still do it. I really think RJS is going to wait until after his senior year before he makes up his mind. (i know he tweeted he was going to pick prior to) I think what GM does with the D this year is going to be a big part of the process for Royce, Ross and Richardson.
I agree that he will wait a little but I think it has less to do with how the D plays and more RJS wanting to soak up the spotlight a little more. It seems like with each year, recruiting becomes crazier and crazier. Think about it, we had one recruit who basically had his whole segment live on ESPN (and it wasnt even NSD) and another recruit publicaly announce he was going to one school and then just not send in his LOI and go elsewhere.
Now does that mean that RJS, Richardson, Ross, Wormley etc., are going to wait just to soak up recruiting attention? No, not necessarily, but I do think that more recruits are going to wait longer, or only give soft verbals (i.e. go on other visits and take other calls... think Dee Hart (too soon? I'm sorry)) so that they can maximize their offer numbers and the media attention they get. I hope that I am wrong in the case of RJS, I just wouldnt hold my breath waiting for the kid to commit.
Need Ross or RJS... both would be great. Go Blue!
of mlive, with the trolls and name calling.
Anyway, my concern with LB recruiting is our depth at the position. We currently have 8 guys, and that doesn't include T. Gordon, Furman, C. Johnson or Hawthorne (I think at least two are going to be LB's). Add to that the incoming freshman (Jones, Morgan, Poole and Clark). That is a lot of LB's.
Is LB going to be with Hoke, what the slot guys were to RR?
Interesting question, but there might be a difference.
Furman is listed on the football roster as a safety. Roh is listed as a LB, but I think his abilities might be more suited to being on the line with his hand down. It's also not uncommon for one or two guys to come in listed as LBs and then get big enough to end up on the line by the time they're juniors. With the slot guys, it's harder for me to envision them moving to other positions because of their size.
Even if none of the LBs moved to other positions, I think the numbers at LB are actually a good thing, given our problems on defense the last three years, especially at that position.
I've gotten so used to early commits (Hollowell in January last year, Miller at the beginning of his junior year before that) and I see them for other teams around the country that it's making me anxious for our first of this year.
Then I have to remind myself that guys like Ross, RJS, and Diamond haven't been in touch with Hoke for months, like previous recruits had been with Rodriguez.
People are still in that "getting comfortable with the new guy" mode. It will happen soon enough. And I ALWAYS have to remind myself that NOTHING is official until next Feb.
