Guys, FWIW, King Beaver has gone "sunny sider" on Sean Parker. Parker has apparently moved his announcement day up to January 2.
A sunny sider (KB says he's too chicken to go higher) is a pretty good sign, usually.
Can't we just get the normal "gut feeling".
I should have explained "sunny sider" more specifically than "it's usually a good sign."
Sunny sider means "it's usually a good sign" that King Beaver feels pretty confident about the possibility of UM maybe having a chance to be in the running to get a commitment from parker.
Or is that your somewhat mocking gloss on it? If "sunny sider" actually means that it might be a good sign of his confidence in a possibility of maybe having a chance, that's really really amazing.
The only words I see here are:
chance to be in the running..
The more words you used, the less and less confident/excited I got.
I thought it was funny.
you also thought that your joke yesterday was funny...
That was the point; I was making light of that thread. Two posters whiffed on his sarcasm, and got multi-posbanged. I was just letting him know that even though the WLA left, there are still a (diminishing?) few people left who aren't excessively literal or uptight. Neg away if you feel like spending the time.
Did they go to Middle Earth or something?
an 85% chance that UM will have a 50% chance of being in the running for a verbal from Parker.
I guess I'm saying that we HAVE A CHANCE!
Nothing personal at all, but that was less concrete than jello. I feel pretty confident about the possibility of having a chance to be in the running to get a supermodel if I actually would ever meet one. That, however, is extraordinarily unlikely.
Thanks for explaining it though. Here, we speak on gut feelings.
Now don't be guilty of Ugly Wolverine Syndrome (UWS)--just learn to be bilingual so you know what I'm talking about when I relay something King Beaver says.
I just thought the terminology of King Beaver was a tad odd and rather funny.
a sunny sider sounds far too much like "happy ending" if you know what I mean....
All very promising, but what about his PAD LEVEL?
What I want to know is how flexible his hips are.
Man, so much for needing more DB's.
Can haz DBs.
taking paid subscription info and putting it here... it's one thing if it's in a headline thats obvious like "DID UM GET NEW COMMIT???" above a picture of Richard Ash, but it's another to do this
It is one thing to post a tidbit of information from a paysite; it is another to lift entire articles/sections from said paysite.
This is the former, and I don't see anything wrong with it - this gets done all the time. Now if SM/KoB had copy/pasted the entire post then it might be a different story.
Dadgum double post.
Sean Parker would instantly be my most favoritest recruit in this class if he committed.
Right behind Vinopal.
I'm kidding. Don't spaz please.
Why Parker out of curiosity?
Josh at Rivals posted basically the same thing as Beaver last night.
(Except Josh worded it, you know, like an adult.)
I was just wondering where you see that?
I am seeing a rumor that we may have made some progress with Mike Thornton... I haven't seen anything on Parker.
The Parker tidbit on Rivals? It was on their premium message board...if you can read it, skim it for Josh's "addendum to ITF Re: Sean Parker" topic. He posted it around 8:00 last night.
Yea, thanks that's the one. Man that was buried deep. (That's what she said). 9 pages back.
There is no one on the planet who abuses the English language more than Tom Beaver.
I'm finals wasted, please excuse my lack of intelligence.
More than Yogi Berra? I've got to see this......
you must know someone.
Does he plan to enroll early? Is this why moving the date up is a good sign?
Unless he has already enrolled and the receiving team knows, he's not enrolling early. Classes here start the 6th so that'd be a pretty tight schedule
but DAMN it would be sweet to land Parker! Seriously, it would make this one of my favorite recruiting classes ever (assuming everything else unfolds as it should).
Quite a turn around considering my feelings early on during the recruiting process this year.
It is a long and grueling marathon. You've got to be able to make it to the end or else you end up having a race named after you!
When I get the gut feeling from Sam I'll feel confident.
But does he have a uniquename yet?
I have a uniquename, can you guess what it is? No seriously, that's really my uniquename.
I think Parker is a safety we haven't had at Michigan in a very long time. He's a true center fielder who can not only tackle, but also play the ball, pick it off, and go the other way. He's not a midget like Vinopal or Mike Williams or Thomas Gordon, and he's got more speed than Carvin Johnson or Marvin Robinson.
I really think this kid is going to be good. He might not make an immediate impact, but he could very well be our starting SS once Troy Woolfolk leaves.
as happy as a little girl if U of M got that kind of player. Michigan hasn't had one of those since...uh...
