Just listented to WTKA where Sam said Tate is NOT transferring. Although he didn't talk to him directly he said to consider the source. Sam saw Tate at the team hotel, saw him getting on the bus going to practice yesterday afternoon.
I'd like to trust the hot chick because I believe everything hot chicks say, I'll go with Sam Webb on this one.
What you're saying is Sam Webb THINKS Tate isn't transferring. That's what I, and many other MGoPosters think too but until Tate actually says something it's just speculation.
If this is just considered speculation, then so is that girl's tweet. She said she had "a reliable source" as well.
As far as I'm concerned, just stating you have a reliable source is a hell of a lot different than citing that source or at least giving a name. This girl just wanted to create buzz, and she got it.
edit: if she does have a source, by the way, I trust Webb's a lot more. And Webb's sources probably aren't trying to get in his pants by giving up the big scoop. just sayin'.
inside my man parts.
that she must have believed this was legit information...
After seeing the pics of her on the front page, I doubt she needs to spread a rumor to gain attention.
Of course it was legit! Men do have a tendency to be "honest" around women that look like that.
My guess, they were doing the no-pants dance, and at that special moment he shouted, "I'm transferring!"
You know what I always find lullzy? Whenever it's some news you don't like, there's always 100 jackholes demanding that people name their sources... even though, you know, that would compromise the source's ability to provide information in the future.
But when it's some good news attributed to "reliable sources", nobody comes in and demands names. I mean, who is Sam Webb's source? Where are the demands for him to name names?
He wouldn't be going to practice if he was transferring.
Also this from TomVH
Mike Forcier, Tate's dad, laughed at the transfer rumors. Said they aren't true, and he wouldn't support it anyways.
Bleedin9Blue's info is on par with Sam Webb's info... good, now I can stop listening and stop going to scout, I can just get all the news here.
Hopefully soon we hear something like "It's preposterous... hate having to speak to these rumors/lies... go hell Pretty Penn State Pants..." etc. from the university or Tate (or Tate's dad after having talked to Tate). But until then I reserve the right to maintain yellow alert
Tate realizing he F'd up and working hard is about a good a scenario as we could have at this point. Going from that to hearing transfer is a little too much to handle
BTW, FolmerWolv chimed in last night and said Tate was still very much in the QB race
Before he posts news about the transfer on Tate's Wall of Shame.
weighed in yesterday with comments from Tate's Dad saying Tate was not transferring. That is now double the number of sources contradicting what the hottie with the plastic cans was "reporting" yesterday.
But do you have a source...
... or do you just THINK her cans are plastic?
I consider myself a visual expert.
Her name is Melanie! Not hottie. She's a real person you know!
She's mostly a real person...a slight, but important distinction as far as I'm concerned
I think they are plenty pleased with her.
Do you think they change the dress code after she was hired to mandatory bikinis?
Here's how Imagine the situation:
BTN Exec 1: " Bob, did you see what the professional hot chic tweeted last night?"
BTN Exec 2: "Yes, Bob, I did. Outrageous! We should have a talk with her right now."
BTN Exec 1: "Good idea. Barbara, please send in professional hot chic. Thank you."
Professional Hot Chic enters office.
Professional Hot Chic: "You gentlemen wanted to see me?" Bats eyes.
BTN Exec 1: " Well, uh, we uuhhhhm. Just wanted a, uh, moment to discuss the uhhh . . . .Bob what was it that we wanted to discuss?"
BTN Exec 2: "You're looking very professional today."
BTN Exec 1: "Yes yes. and hot."
BTN Exec 2: "Of course! Did I not mention that? My apologies. You ae looking very professional and hot today. Was there something else, Bob?"
BTN Exec 1: "No no. I beleive that was it. Thank you."
Professional Hot Chic blows each of them a kiss before leaving the office.
BTN Exec 1: " Well, I think that went very well. What do you think, Bob?"
BTN Exec 2: "I like her."
Maybe we'll find out whether they're pleased or not, soon enough. She says they're shooting BTN promos today.
"They are so into every thing I sa-ay. They must really respect me."
Great to hear he is staying
Now if only we could get him some wings...
I'd love to have an entire day without any freakouts/bad news/meltdown material.
This seems like a good start - think we can keep this going oh Angry Michigan Blank Hating God???
Did i just hear thunder?
Quick! Go find a virgin to toss into a volcano. No virgins around? Fine. Use a goat, but you hae to put it in a dress and make her feel pretty.
Maybe they'll take hot chick
Toss her in! Be prepared, though. If this backfires, you will then need the virgin, the goat, and some whale blubber (the rest of Boren is optional).
Mgoblog needs NBA Jam rules. You, sir, are on fire.
Between this and the Allen Gant article he wrote today, Sam Webb is making me one happy chalupa.
In fact, if Sam ever wandered on to the boards I can guarantee that posbanging would ensue.
She's way hotter than Sam. So there's that.
Why is it everything happens aftre work these past two days? I take my kid to football practice and come back and the board has gone into a tizzy in the three hours I've been gone.
Count your blessings.
"Sam Webb reported that he, not Tate, is transferring."
That woman is ruining my life. Seeing as how I work in a seminary, it's a little inconvenient having to avoid the front page all day.
then you could stay on that page all day ;)
If the last two years didn't happen. Can't wait for the season to start.
Sports has become a soap opera for men. All day yesterday it was drama on Favre on the radio and there are always rumors and speculation.
...to explain her tweet.
I suppose pictures of her "tweet" would be too much to ask.....
"expand her tweet".
Whole different mental image there.
I've had as much fun with this as anyone... but we might want to dial the misogyny down to like an "8." We hold the high ground as the wronged party here, but not by much.
Just a thought.
Here's another Tweet from Professional Hotty...
"A source within UM told me and I shouldn't have tweeted it without confirmation. Wasn't trying to start an uproar."
So, she wasn't trying to start an uproar (in my pants?!?) or just in Wolverine Nation? She is another in a long line of shock journalists throwing mud (side note: I'd love to see her in the Mud Bowl for Homecoming...) at UM's program.
The wagons will circle around Coach RR, and The Team, The Team, The Team will come out with Brock (running) on the field.
I wouldn't call this a shock journalist trying to start an uproar. It is just another example of a journalist that, in an attempt to be the first to "break" a hot story, rushes to press without confirming her info. This is no different than what Herbie did with the whole Les Miles thing.
