And don't forget the prenup, I don't want him dipping out on us after a year and a half.
to play football, not to play trumpet
And don't forget the prenup, I don't want him dipping out on us after a year and a half.
know what sucks thou, he is going to visit USC which is like a death wish to all possiable michigan commits
"Possessing the necessary qualities of or having sufficient grounds to form a posse."
Yes, my friend, with Rich Rodriguez, all things are possiable.
lol yeah anything is POSSIBLE under RICH like going 3-9 and 5-7 at michigan
Until there is a spell check on here I can't fault people for misspelling things every once in a while.
Everyone should have Google Chrome...much faster and has a built in spell-checker I believe.
So does Firefox.
Same with Safari. You can probably tell what computer I'm on if there are dumb spelling errors.
know its funny, its like I work all day, than during some breaks I check rivals every once in a while, and come on mgoblog maybe post a comment. I spell 1 word wrong and I have to have somebody correct me like I am at work lol I laugh at it
"lol i laugh at it". The LOL implies that you laughed at it already... out loud even!
I hope that didn't come off as a mere spelling attack... Just using it as a springboard more than anything. Everyone kills people, everyone misspells.
I like six zero
I get a kick out of reading the comments from these guys after their visits. You can tell how much these coaches are in their heads with negative recruiting. They usually mention something about the weather, probably because some coach in the SEC mentions that U of M Is actually just outside of the arctic circle, and their team hasn't been north of the mason dixon line in 100 years. Then, they mention something about "family values" as every coach tells them how warm and fuzzy they are with their players. Like Urban Meyer is going to come to their dorm room at night with a cup of cocoa and a hug to sit down and discuss why they missed that crucial block.
They should know better. Let's be honest, Meyer reserves his dorm room hot cocoa visits solely for Tim Tebow.
Any day now, or waiting until the official day for signing letters of intent?
According to scout he waiting until Signing Day to announce his decision.
Parker has said that he wants to leave the State of California.
thats awesome, the just ridiculous amout of DEPTH WE DON'T HAVE AT SAFTEY this kid has to be top priority, like top of the list
I thought using "thou" for "though" was much worse than the typo in "possiable."
I have a question. Do you have a favorite brother? Shawn, Damon, or keenan Ivory?
Take a fucking pill and get off your high horse. I can tell you one thing: Most people here (and I stress most, not all) are far more concerned with a posts substance rather than the spelling.
Smitty may make some mistakes in his spelling (which I attribute to typo's rather than the lack of knowledge as to how a word is spelled) but at least his posts add something to the board.....as opposed to clowns that only come on here to correct peoples spelling mistakes, not mentioning names......
Seriously, give the guy a break.
I am not saying that it is hard, I am saying that it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. Unlike some posts, with his I can at least understand what he is trying to say and most of it seems to be on point ime.
to be honest I like it when people don't punctuate and capitalize everything 100% correctly. as opposed to their post reading like it was written by a high-school-English-teaching-robot, it reads with more personality. for people like Brian and Tom, of course, it is more important to be grammatically correct (etc.) because their content is the official production of this website, not tag-along forum stuff.
unless every single word is spelled incorrectly and their post is GLARINGLY FOURTH GRADE-ISH OH EM GEE (not the case with the poster you're criticizing) then I don't see the problem.
Like you have no idea what I do. You have no idea I own my own business, no idea that I donated 15,000 dollars to the michigan solar car team this year. I come on this blog to talk about and read about Michigan. Not correct people to fuel my inferior complex.
Good day to you sir
wow, yes I do have a high school diploma. I graduated from Sterling Heights Stevenson. I edited my post because honestly you or anyone else does not need to know my income or what I do for Michigan. I let you get to me, because you were trying to force a argument. So I posted stuff that had nothing to do with it so I took it down.
Seriously, though, I feel for these kids trying to make these decisions. Every coach they talk to is lying to them, they are taking counsel from parents who more than likely have never played college football or even been to college, their high school coach (how smart do you remember your HS football coach/ gym teacher being?) and other 17 year old kids. If you believe some of the goofs on this site, they might also be scouring blogs looking for random fans speaking poorly of them so they can check that school off of their lists, but I doubt it. Then, after they make the most important choice of their life, the coach that convinced them takes off to ND. That is tough.
Parker is probably #1 on my list of what [realistic] commits I would most like Michigan to get.
Seantrel Henderson, Latwan Anderson, Jordan Hicks, etc. are all great uncommitted players, but they're not going to come here.
At all realistic? 'Cause that would be a good one too, IME.
I believe he committed to WVU within the past week or so. Could be wrong, though.
But the free page on Scout lists him as a soft verbal to WVU, and has an Ann Arbor visit date for last weekend. Did he actually make it up this time?
He committed to WV, but it's a very soft commit and is still visiting UM.
Ash's comment was it's a verbal it is non binding.
Yes, Ash gave a verbal commitment to WVU, but it's just that, a verbal commitment. He took an official visit to Michigan this past weekend AFTER he committed to WVU. I would say that if he's still taking officials then he's still open.
This is one that would really help. Rashad Knight would be very close though. And I still don't know what the hell we are going to do about class size limits.
If he really wants to leave Cali we will welcome him with open arms. The kids got game and would be a welcome sight in the secondary next year. I wonder what effect he would have on the other safeties- as we already have three verbals in this class?
Meant to put up a new post, disregard this.
(response to the post he moved, sorry)
So you are saying that you don't WANT UofM to be sleazy, but you would accept it if it meant we were better sooner. We could also get better recruits if we put players in nice houses (cough..USC...cough) or get them laid on recruiting visits (cough...LSU, Florida...cough). How do you feel about that?
STW P. Brabbs: Ash is somewhat realistic, although not probable. He committed to WVU, and Pahokee's coach preaches that kids should follow through with their commitments. But he's interested in Michigan, if only because of Smith, Hawthorne, Odoms, etc. Still, I'd say he's kind of a long shot at this point.
Maize and Blue 4 life: I don't know that Parker would have a huge effect on the other three safeties. Parker is a strong safety type, and both Marvin 'n' Carvin are free safety types. Vinopal is the only other strong safety type who's committed, and I guess I've made it pretty clear how I feel about Vinopal over the past couple days... If it changes his mind, that won't bother me too much.
"If it changes his mind, that won't bother me too much."
...yeah, vinopal is going to decommit bc he read about how you don't like him. what a delusional retard/douchebag.
he wasn't suggesting that Vinopal would decommit for that reason.
I guess I've made it pretty clear how I feel about Vinopal over the past couple days... If IT changes his mind, that won't bother me too much.
Pretty positive that "It" referred to a potential Parker commitment. Like, 'if Parker committing changes Vinopal's mind, that won't bother me too much.'
As the sensible readers have pointed out, I was talking about Parker's commitment changing Vinopal's mind, not my message board posts.
You're right - I would be delusional if I thought my opinion of a kid would determine where he goes to school.
That being said, you might want to hone your critical thinking skills.
i apologize for jumping to conclusions...but regardless, its more an issue of writing clarity and reading comprehension than critical thinking skills.
learn the definition of the word before you use it.
No, it's definitely critical thinking.
Before you responded, you probably should have thought to yourself, "Is he saying that Parker's commitment might turn away Vinopal OR is he saying that he believes some random internet message board guy's opinion might turn away Vinopal? Oh, yeah, that second idea is stupid. He must have meant the former."
That's critical thinking. Yours needs work.
Magnus: Would you consider Tony Jefferson unrealistic, or do you think Parker is better?
(Last I heard we were in his final 3 with OU and USC, though probably in 3rd place. It's certainly possible I've missed something though.)
Not sure why this never occured to me, but wouldn't it be sweet if those two ended up being the back line someday with names like that?
I think the Tony Jefferson boat has sailed unless USC/Oklahoma fill up at his position. Furman and Jefferson are both being recruited for the SAM position, and since Furman is going to commit to us or VT on December 19, I'd say that will go a long way toward deciding whether we continue to pursue Jefferson or not.
Give it a rest.
How fast is Parker? Anyone seen his film?
I'm worried he might be another tweener S/LB.
At 5'10 185, hes a pure Safety
Parker is 100% strong safety material. He'd play center field for us, and he'd play it well, too.
if parker (or knight/anderson, for that matter) commits, do we lose vinopal or carvin?
If Parker, Anderson, or Knight committed it would have more of an effect on Vinopal than Carvin.
Vinopal would be a SS in this defense and Carvin more of a FS. Keep in mind that a SS in this defense is the centerfielder type and the FS in this defense is the in the box safety.
Parker, Anderson, and Knight would all project as a SS so they would not have much effect at all on Carvin.
I also don't think we would take a commitment from Vinopal this late in the game if we were going to then turn around and say, "Sorry, we found someone we like better".
I think we end up taking 28 this class and have 3 guys grayshirt. That or some guys won't qualify.
Regardless, IME, I think we would take any three of those guys and keep Carvin and Vinopal. We have the best shot at Parker or Knight.
Just read on Scout that Tom Beaver is reporting that "the home town team" has offered Carvin Johnson. Can only assume this would be LSU.
Anyone else hear this anywhere?
