Saw a rumor that a couple players were missing from Spring practice today. Does anyone have any idea who these kids might be? Sounds like either LBs or DBs.
to play football, not to play trumpet
I don't know. My Tom Beaver bullshit decoder hasn't been working lately. All I got was that it wasn't someone listed as a starter on his depth chart, wasn't on the offense and wasn't on the DL.
its bound to happen with a new coaching regime in town. I really hope this turns out to be a false rumor though
You SAW a rumor?
If he read it, then he saw it.
Not if it was Braille.
"I *felt a rumor..."
Depending on the rumor, that phrase might land you in jail.
I felt a tumor one time.
It's not A. Toomer!
edit: I changed my mind, this one's better.
"I came, I felt, I concurred"
they dont show after the first pratice? I call BS.
Agreed that's my call as well. That's way too soon to make a decision one way or the other.
Great. Now the Spring Game definitely won't be a game!
Also, maybe they're just injured or something.
Speaking of players gone, I was looking at our 09 class, and damn was it depressing, I hadn't realized there were so many players who aren't on the team anymore from that class.
The #5's, Lalota, and Turner. Thats not all that many
That's still more than I'd prefer.
Vlad and Tate were the 5s.
EDIT: Ooooh you got lucky before I locked it in.
Haha, I realized my mistake quickly...
I guess 4 isn't that many, though they were among the recruits with the most hype.
Well, Witty would make 5.
Borges probably ate Jeremy Gallon to free up some roster space.
Just play along for once, the game is called I SPY or CLUE. At this moment we know quite a little bit, with more in the offing if you would just show some god damn patience for once.
they were too bust stretching on there own time
If there weren't so many errors..
... maybe they were stretching busts, using time that was over there.
Wasnt the practice at 530am? perhaps they overslept. I know when i was in college for those two semesters i would oversleep for 9am classes.
If it wasnt for the Corps i would probably still be over sleeping. I over slept once in the corps and havent done so since. Its not a good idea to do that.
9AM! I didn't even get 9AM classes as I knew I would never make them. My roommate regularly slept through his 2PM class!
That may be true, but I still want to fuck the Sucker Punch girl.
All of them.
2 1 4 3 5
i really wanted to add a video of a dog show judge choosing the winners.
3rd!... 2nd! ...1st!!! holding up each dog
Nice try though.
2 3 4 1 5
Now this thread has some substance.
4 1 3 2 5
1 4 3 2 5. The chick in the commercial is hot
3 2 4 1 5
Poor girl on the right, always a five. Though really 1-3 are close and then the major dropoff.
y'all sound like you're arguing about what the firing order is on an old-school 5 cylinder Edsel or something... YES I know what you're actually doing. My mechanic's brain kicked in there for a minute...
Well I want to punch the fucker who decided it should be PG-13.
Don't worry. The name easily lends itself to a pornographic spin-off.
I think it's the other way around.
This man will teach you everything you need to know about women. True story.
I say Floyd and T-Woolf. Beaver forgot they were injured and had to rehab.
I say Forcier because Beaver doesn't know he is off the team and would lead us to believe he is a DB.
I heard a rumor we lost by 2 yesterday to Duke, but I refuse to accept it and look foward to Arizona later this week.
I heard a rumor that Oprah's farts are responsible for global warming and tsunamis.
The debate is over
It's not her farts you should be worried about...
Couldn't it be injury, sickness, etc.
The DB that was absent is Denard Robinson. Hoke thinks he'll be the best 3rd string safety in Michigan history, making stops for the manball offense led by Jack Kennedy.
And the farts you don't hear at all will kill you. SBD
look like a white Calvin Magee with the way he wears his hat in the prac video?
He is Uncle Fester.
Who is the next person to add a sarcastic remark? I think the 30th was enough.
The names I've seen thrown around on message boards are Terry Talbott and Cullen Christian. I do not know if it's true, but those are just the names I've seen. Don't shoot the messenger.
OMG -- it's a messenger -- get him!!!!
I voted you up so you'd have 13 and be unlucky. NOBODY ELSE VOTE HIM UP !
The Beave changed his comment to say it was not a member of the DL, so maybe it was the other Talbott. Who the hell knows?
Additionally, they may have had an excuse for missing practice and whichever tipster/indsider provided the info may not have knowledge of the excuse.
The rumor I felt said that TT and CC are really disconcerted over the lack of yelling and screaming by the coaches; they've concluded that it means Hoke & Co. don't love them or care about them. They're looking to transfer to Nebraska so they can get some real family-atmosphere screaming from Pelini.
Now they would have to pay their own way, a year ago they could have gotten a scholie
Christian was absent because he is still at his press conference.
The CC thing is possible? FB status today that doesn't mention football but does indicate he's going through some stuff. Could be coincidence and unrelated, though, I've got no idea.
Well your stalking made me want to stalk, and I saw that 23 hours ago, he went from "in a relationship" to "single." So maybe that's what his emotional status was referring to?
Maybe it's just me, but I think it would be nice of we could keep the Facebook stalking limited to public comments/musings about the team. Updates on relationship status are where things start to cross the line, in my opinion.
The next MGoBoard enhancement script should auto-posbang any Calvin & Hobbes posts.
I was just furthering the fact that CC's facebook had no negative feelings towards football and gave a reason as to why. In no way do I actually care about or want to expose the personal lives of the team.
Well, I must be in the minority, because I've been negged for the above comment.
Nevermind - let's DEFINITELY update relationship status changes from Facebook! It sounds like a great idea!
I'll join you as a minority. Some of us cross the line when it comes to this kind of stuff especially recruits. What comes to mind is the incident where someone of this blog was constantly tweeting prospects about where they were going.
I wasn't aware of that incident. It sounds believeable, though.
Well, I did a little stalking too. I just googled "Cullen Christian Twitter" and found this http://twitter.com/Call_Me_Nasty. It seems like he was at the Athletic complex about 6 hours ago. I'm thinking he was at practice, and if he wasn't he's still on the team. That is if I'm interpretting it correctly.
He asked Vinopal if he was ok a couple of times on twitter.
Dude, we all know by now that CC means COACHING CHANGE. That is done. Please find a new abbreviation.
Dee Hart and Demar Dorsey?
I just have to paraphrase Blazefire's signature:
"Sooner or later, you're going to have to stick your arm up a beaver's butt."
The responses to this post are what I love most about this blog! Funny shit! If this was the LSU blog, people would be killing chickens and making voodoo sacrifices over the prospect of (unconfirmed) missing players.
There is going to be attrition, like there is in every coaching change. As long as Denard and Devin aren't part of it, the team will be fine. As for today, it doesn't mean squat. The attrition won't begin until the semester ends.
It all works out fine. I'm not literally comparing football to life and death, but this metaphor still holds true: it's better to find out someone doesn't fit in boot camp than in a foxhole. By the end of spring practice, there will be a few players that don't fit, or for whom Michigan doesn't fit. As long as they don't badmouth the program on the way out, I will wish them well.
For realz though if CC washes out that literally makes everyone of RR's big name recruits a bust: BooBoo(Circa Lloyd), Vlad, Tate, LaLota, Turner, and Demar.
By big name I mean people we all salavated over when they committed, granted there have been plenty of other kids who have stepped up and became stars in their own right by hardwork and dedication.
Except for Campbell and Garnder
Devin Gardner wore a red shirt outside his dormroom thursday when the weather was nice, any reason for concern?
Traitor! Only blue shirts are acceptable. Unless it's his medical red shirt, then that's fine. Sucks he'll have to wear it for 4 years though./s
Surprisingly, I don't regret clicking on this thread
*sees 90+ thread about a topic that shouldn't be over 30*
"Huh, I wonder what happened. If this many people responded something serio--"
*sees Sucker Punch women and random posbangs*
"Somehow, I'm not surprised."
