to play football, not to play trumpet
Its only cryptic because he wants you to go behind a paywall.
I don't think it's very cryptic....you don't need to go behind the paywall to discern the jist of what's going on. Sam gives out lots of free info, that comment isn't called for
I was seriously giggling like this before you posted it lmao
Butt is my #1 must get recruit because his name is Jake Butt.
This is the kind of thing that will make Sparty even MORE insufferable for the next four years.
"Heh heh heh... Butt...."
Not if he's knocking their safeties and linebackers on their butts with regularity. And it will never be so satisfying to call them out on being Butthurt.
Ok guys, lets not get so anal about the name puns.
I like big Butt and I cannot lie?
Here's an idea I can get behind.
Instead of arguing about it, you could just turn the other cheek...
Enough of these lame ass puns.
Rectum? Damn near killed 'em!
we don't have a quarterback like john david booty to throw to him.
At least it's funny. Butt seriously guys, stop the shit. We need to put this keister nonsense behind us before we hit bottom.
My god I hope he doesn't read this thread. So much for Michigan being his #1.
#1 in the #2 business
be nice if Sam had one of his butt feelings on this one.
Jake Butt seems to be highly regarded early in the process, but would it close the door on Breneman if he commits? I know Breneman is by no means a sure thing, but he's the best in the class. I know the staff was willing and trying to take 3 this year, but thye took 2 this year, 2 next year, and with Miller returning that's 5 scholarhsips tight ends.. seems like enough.
I don't think two traditional TEs (Butt & Brenemen) and an H-back/U-back (Hill) would be out of the question.
One in the Butt is worth two in the bush.
Very nicely done.
You win the internet this week. Game over.
If I could plus 1 you I would. Hilarious.
First spit take of the year.
I always thought we needed some more Butt on our team.
Recruits in the start of the new season cometh by twos: two shall be the number of the counting, and the counting of the number shall be two. And the Lord did grin and sayeth, "Yay verily, one shall be from Michigan, and the other from Ohio."
And the people did rejoice and feast upon the lambs, and the sloths, and the apricots, and the fruitbats, and the breakfast cereals...
Fruitbats? That's disgusting.
I've eaten fruitbats in Indonesia. Not as bad as you might expect. Like Chicken, but only more disgusting.
Is anything more disgusting than eating chicken? I'd rather eat a wild bat than a domestic chicken... Ever seen a chicken farm?
Do you eat bacon?
Do you eat bacon?
but that's alright, because posts about bacon are ALWAYS acceptable. Ever tried bacon ice cream? Not bad, actually. Just interesting.
We threw the Holy Hand Grenade agains Ohio.
They got pissed.
I recall Denard yelling something to the effect of: "Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!"
Does this whole conversation entail that Urban Meyer weighs the same as a duck?
SO we are recruiting him as a TE not DE??
From What I've read Breneman loves him some Penn State, and one would think that Brady would make him a huge priority.
Please go to Penn St! Hopefully Penn St can get back to an above average team so we don't have to disgustingly watch Ohio St get the easiest road to the Championship Game year in or year out.
try not too assume to much
I just chatted with Jake who in fact confirmed that Michigan is "number one for sure right now"
Aquaman...YOU are the night!
and yes, he says "nee!"
I don't think Ohio or ND have offered yet. He grew up a big Ohio fan and his gramps played for the Irish. Do you know if he's waiting for either of those schools to offer? If they do, will UM still lead?
I'd bet my ass on it.
He did say that the fact that Michigan was for sure #1 was "definitely subject to change". I know he's planned on taking his time in determining where he wants to go, so if either of those two offered, yes, I would expect them to be strong contenders for his services.
Note that one of the comments he made when I first talked to him was that the time that a team offers him didn't matter, meaning getting an early offer doesn't give a certain team a certain advantage.
Since when does Sam need any confirmation?
What is Butt's preferred position?
Michigan is recruiting him as a TE. He plays DE also.
He's being recruited at TE, so I would assume he's ok with that.
Thanks. could have easily googled it but it didn't appear for some reason.
edit: thought it was Bute.
Trying....so....hard....to not make.....sex joke........
glad that Mike Cox will have graduated. Can you imagine? This in itself would require many threads.
but my butt's preferred position is on the chair.
Ok, that crosses the line.
Don't know why nobody will spell it out. For those of you not too familiar with football position abbreviations, Jake Butt is a Tight End, but he also plays Defensive End.
Does he PLAY tight end, or does he HAVE a tight end? That's the question here.
TE to go along with Hill. Hill is more of an H-Back type, where as at 6'6", Jake is a pure TE.
I would have named him Kingsley if I had a say in it.
Kingsley Zissou Butt?
Butt. But not Butkis.
Is that a traditional tOSU stronghold? I don't put much stock into the "who Urban wants out of Ohio Urban will get" talk, yet I'm sure the lure won't be as strong outside of their pipelines.
suburb of Columbus. Picktown Central is normally the football power, but North produces some good talent too.
a decade ago, the football strength and focus stayed at Central (the building which used to be just Pickerington), but North (the new school) has done a nice job of building a strong program over the last few years. If North could've held Central from scoring in the last minute this last season in their head to head meeting, North would've made the playoffs and Central would've been out (Central eventually went to the finals and lost). North has still not defeated Central in regular season or playoffs.
North's 2012 OL Pat Elflein is, I think, their first osu commit. Snowplow was another North product; his siblings, though, transferred or went all 4 years at Central. Many more MAC commits than any BCS commits at North. So not quite the osu stranglehold...but both Luke and Brady were visiting North this last fall; I'm guessing Jake was the main attraction.
I'm hoping Michigan also takes a look at RB Godwin Igwebuike while they're in town; he's been great in all three phases of the game - little preview in his video.
With a name like Butt it would seem tight end is his natural position.
34 seconds in.
STOP making this nice young man the butt of your jokes.
Have you no sense of decency?
These cracks are becoming too much!
I'm guessing his favorite position is behind
Man, something smells here tonight...
Butt don't read too much into it?
How is this news .. this guy's bein' an ass!!
Meyer stay off his tail. He's ours.
I would very much like it if he unleashed fury in the Horseshoe.
UNLEASH BUTT'S FURY IN THE TOILET!
It's nice to be in front of a recruitment.
/Rise of the anti-pun
Lets not sit down on this one.
I hope he "runs" fast!
I'm surprised you all have thus far missed the obvious that he's going to be our Tight End. Or did I miss something somewhere?
Looking forward to watching 4 years of Shane Morris delivering the pigskin to Butt!! Word is he prefers tight ends to wide receivers.
