Shane Morris interview at The Opening - via ESPN chat
Why isn't this article a thread? :
Flamebait? This article was posted 38 minutes ago by ACE. I do not see it anywhere else on the blog, including the Lequon Treadwell thread. ACE proclaims that he is for sure going blue. That has not happened before. The title is a Jerry Maguire refrence. This blog is Big Brother masquerading as a sport blog.
I legitimately never knew there was a difference. I'm sorry
Ace Williams is RDT
Just a piece of friendly advice....avoid Ace WILLIAMS on this blog, but go ahead and read Ace ANBENDER. Also, referring to the people that run this blog as "big brother" is not going to endear yourself to anyone.
Any reference to Ace Anbender should have a "YTA" ("Yes That Ace") and any reference to the other Ace should be "NTA".
How about we never mention Ace Williams after this? Okay. Cool.
Also - bitching about your moderation only gets you more negative moderation. Take your negs like a man and move on.
Can we bitch about others' ratings? For example: WTF! WOLVINLA2'S COMMENT ONLY GET A "NORMAL". IMO IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE, AND SHOULD THEREFORE RECIEVE AN "INFORMATIVE" RATING. FUCK U GUYZ!
Im new to posting on this board... Do just mods neg you? Or do posters as well? Maybe with a certain number of points?
I'm the guy in charge of negs. If you buy me a beer or a hooker or something you're in the clear for a while. If you piss me off then I make you my bitch forever. Good luck, soldier.
I love it when a post perfectly matches the poster's avatar.
newbies get beat to shit on here for awhile. Anyone can neg you, but the moderations don't change your point total, you just get points when you post.
Also, best to avoid even talking about points, 'cuz you'll get bombed...but like I said, you're new. You have a ton of stuff to learn, like a bazillion acronyms, some of which you may only see on this board. For example, HOTTDB = "Hold on to the damn ball!" (born 2008, I think).
Rules of MgoBlog:
1. Do not talk about MgoPoints.
2. Do not talk about MgoPoints.
But, you just ... I think ... I mean, didn't you ...
Ace Williams is a hack.
Comes outta left field there but I can't disagree that hell be really good. Maybe tossing the ball to MegaQuon ( you heard it here first) this week will change that answer.
Not bad, but I fear TV guys coming up with some variation of "Quontum". Like if he hurdles a defender or grabs a jump ball, it'll surely be a "Quontum Leap". But hey, if he does those things, I'm okay with pretty much any nickname.
Semi OT - my iPhone has now stored the word "Quontum" in its memory.
Quontonium will now power us into the future.
it would have already been there.
I did hear it here first, and I undoubtedly approve. I feel this will catch on rather quickly.
Derrick Green, Mega-Quon, Leon McQuay *drools*
So many recruits, but only so many openings...
Good thing we used a scholly for that long snapper!!! I know, beating a dead horse... Just tough to know we might miss out on one of these guys for a LS
Not having to worry about any botched long snaps for four years is worth a single scholly IMO. You want to have the best players possible at every position, LS included!
That's why I'm not losing sleep over the David Dawson situation. I think in the end he will stay but if he does decide to go with UF then we already have great players recruited at the exact same position and we can maybe grab another skill position player. Needless to say, I hope and pray that he decides to stay with us because I really believe he is going to be a special player but I'm looking for the silver lining here...
Sorry for the doom and gloominess
Well according to his twitter they all ditched him and he's hanging out with the Florida recruits right now. Maybe instead of saying that he's not going anywhere they find him and help him see the light.
Wtf are you talking about?
Seriously flamebait? What is up with this place lately? Who or what was I flaming or bating with my post?
Go to your room.
If you're unaware, there aren't alot of ways to tag a down-vote. It's either flamebait, overrated, trolling, or redundant. Someone probably just didn't agree with you and downvoted you. Don't take the tags so seriously. And another piece of advice, don't complain about how your post gets moderated. Everybody's comments are downvoted from time to time and tagged with something they don't agree with. It happens. Get over it.
Even my posts get downvoted sometimes, and I'm the coolest cat around!
Stole my thunder.
I'm aware and I've been here much longer than my profilie created date would lead you to believe, I just think this is a very real and serious potential problem and people are burying their heads in the sand and pretending it doesn't exist. It's a frustrating situation but most people are just totally writing it off and even claiming it's some elaborate joke or that it's twitter-induced psychosis just because they don't understand the technology.
I think people fully understand twitter. But if you've been here for a while like you said you have been, you'd know that people overreact to tweets all the time. Can't overanalyze something that an 18 year old kid types into his phone. Twitter is very useful, but it's not a source of intimate knowledge - especially when dealing with young people. It should be taken with a grain of salt.
OMG OMG OUR RECRUITING CLASS IS GOING TO FALL APART AND WE WILL HAVE 0 COMMITS IF DAWSON TWEETS ONE MORE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you trolling here because mlive is down today or what?
Who's trolling? I'm trying to talk about one of our better recruits being obviously unhappy and potentially looking elsewhere. I'm not saying our class is going to fall apart, I'm talking about one player. And I'm not reading between the lines or trying to read into what he is saying, he's been quite clear with what he is saying. Continue ignoring it if you want but don't act surprised if he goes elsewhere. I don't know why nobody wants to talk about this (well I know why but the level of actively trying to ignore it is bizarre) or pretend it's not happening. Keep thinking it's a big elaborate ruse though if that makes you feel better, I'll stick to reality thank you.
Either way, I will move on. I really don't mean to threadjack or annoy people with the same thing over and over again and I apologize if that's the case. I won't say any more on the matter (unless something concrete comes out). Go Blue and fuck ohio.
I don't know why you are on mgoblog right now with this dire situation. You are wasting valuable time that you could be sending tweets to Dawson so he re-affirms his commitment and stops hanging out with those Florida kids.
I know you're kidding, but I can't stand people who tweet @ recruits.
Shane says that no one from the class is leaving. I would guess that in the end we may lose a player but if he is not worried right now, then I am not either. I thinking waiting around for someone to de-commit will drive you crazy for the next 7 months.
I'm not worried, either, but history suggests Shane Morris will be proven wrong sometime before February.
@Smitdog: Here's the thing. It's people like you that turn simple tweets into widespread viral rumors about a guy potentially decommiting, that eventually lead to more and more comments taking things out of context and changing words around (like "ditching"), that eventually leads to blog posts from idiots in Ohio, the eventually leads to articles on recruiting sites with inflammatory headlines meant to sucker people into paying to read them.
There are no winners in this situation. You may think that you'll be a winner if he eventually decommits... because you told us so! But then we just won't like you even more.
I doubt it's anything to worry about, but do you mind elaborating on what the tweet said? I'm not a follower of David's.
ok, so here's what he tweeted a couple of hours ago:
"Michigan cats left me ..smh" immediately followed by "Cooling w/ the UF boys"
take it for what its worth. (ie, not much). hopefully its nothing and hes just messing with his guys. hopefully shane remedies that asap. not sure if shane had made it to the opening yet when this was tweeted.
Meh, sounds like some good-natured ribbing to me.
Shane and co. ditching Dawson wasn't intentional I would imagine. I read the ESPN interview earlier as well and although the Florida guys were talking about flipping Dawson, Shane made it pretty clear Dawson was still solid on us. It's the first day of the camp so I wouldn't make anything of it unless it is a reoccuring ordeal over the next three days.
I wouldn't make anything of it even if it is a reoccurring thing. Try to think back to when you were in high school. Jokes get beaten to death and then resurrected and beaten again. It's called being a kid. Actually it happens as an adult too, so really it's just called being a human being who doesn't take life too seriously. If he takes a visit to Florida I'll worry.
If you guys are going to change "left" into "ditching" why dont you change the words around in the Florida tweet too so the connotation will fit your point. I would suggest changing the word "Cooling" maybe to "talking about our future" or "bonding" if you want it to have full effect.
You guys crack me up with the twitter freak outs.
no mgofreakout from me. que sera, sera... i dont actually worry bout any of it, just find twitter to be a useful place to find info from time to time. was reposting to indulge the request above asking about what the tweet said.
Maybe Joe Mathis is going to UF and that's why that guy at that one camp said they were going to be teammates anyways! Where's the panic button with the rainbows and unicorns when we need it most!
Another tweet that I saw that was raised my eyebrow was this one, by Josh Winslow.
Michigan verbal top-10 OG David Dawson still planning to camp at UF's Friday Night Lights, despite Hoke policy against commits taking trips.
I haven't seen any confirmation of this or it being denied by anyone. I haven't even seen it adressed by anyone else, but if true, I'd hope Hoke handles it the same as he has in the past.
I think camping is a different issue, if Dawson were to go on a tour I think Hoke might have a concern. NTFC camps happen in popular college football towns so there is no reason to think that he can attend those camps without attending this one. But discliamer, my name is not Brady Hoke and I am not termendous so I can just be talking from my butt.
That's something I thought as well, but at the same time, it is directly affiliated with Florida, so it'll be interesting to see what Hoke does.
I know OSU has a Friday Night Lights thing as well. I'm not 100% sure if it's a camp, but I think it is. More importantly, it's a huge recruiting tactic of theirs, so I want to see whether Hoke treats this as a camp or a visit.
Friday Night Lights is essentially Florida's BBQ at the Big House. It's a pure recruiting thing. I'm not Brady Hoke, either, but I think it would violate Hoke's policy.
the "Magnus is Coach Hoke" thing can die now.
On to the next question: with the constant overselling, is Magnus actually Fred Jackson?
My first double post, please forgive me.
I don't like that policy in this situation. It's not like he is scheduling an official visit on a random weekend just to spend time at the university. This is a camp, won't rivals, scout, 24/7 be there? Dawson has shown that he enjoys participating in camps and testing his abilities.
return. I trust David to make a sound decision and I trust the coaches to be able to handle the situation that is best for the kid and school
I sincerely hope he doesn't, because I was excited about Pharoah Brown playing for us, too. I wonder if a summer camping is different than taking officials, though.
David is all Blue. His father (who recently passed) wanted him in the Maize and Blue. I really wouldnt worry about him and say let him go kick some ass in FL
I've never heard of him before and cites no sources. Is he affiliated with any recruiting service? It just looks like wishful thinking from a guy in Columbus, OH trying to continue to fuel this.
Unless I hear it straight from the kid's mouth (and I don't mean overanalyzing his twitter feed) or a real Michigan analyst, I am not even going to worry about this one.
Dawson always talks about loving the competition at these camps. Maybe he's just looking for a challenge? I'm sure he's also hoping to get a cheap look at Florida in the process but hopefully it's only a tiny part of why he's going.
It caught me by suprise today when I noticed that Boubacar Cissoko plays for the Chicago Rush of the Arena Football League.
It's nice to see he's landed on his feet, or at least seems to be doing better than Tate.
Everyone is doing better than Tate.
I don't know how many are aware of this but Jourdan Lewis was also interviewed in that same link a little bit farther down
Shane Morris is going to make a GREAT coach when Brady Hoke retires and he wins his 4th Superbowl on his way to a H.O.F career...Too much? Go BLUE!!
