If I hear one more word about Stefon Diggs I might puke. But anyways, hopefully he does not pick Ohio. Other than that, good luck to the kid
Stefon Diggs Announcement - 10PM ET 2/10
I feel like the only thing you do is complain about threads
Stefon Diggs is...
Uh oh, clean up on aisle 7.
It's Friday night it even says that in the above statement.
Drink, drink and drink
BUCKLE UP EVERYONE!!! ;)
i have been buckled ever since last month
Go War Eagles. Or Tigers. Or whatever the hell they are.
I always wondered what the deal was with that...why the two names?
M-Zone's got you covered:
why thank you...that covers it
I want all those schools to lose to Maryland.
So do I after hanging out with Randy Edsell a bunch of times at the local bar where we both grew up. Hes a great guy and alot of fun.
Are you saying that Randy Edsall got drunk and was an accomplice to the Craig James killings of 5 hookers at SMU?
Sure does sound like fun.
It's only been alleged that CRAIG JAMES KILLED 5 HOOKERS WHILE AT SMU.
WE'RE GONNA SHOCK THE WORLD
he is going to shock the world
Ten o'clock PM on a school night!!!
Not a school night.
Thank God. For a minute there I thought we might be dealing with a big-time college football prospect who didn't take academics seriously.
Am I missing something? The block text says Friday. The Heat play the Cavs tonight, not the Wizards. Fix the title of this thread before the Internet collapses, fergodsakes.
Tonight isn't Friday
edit: thanks for fixing
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday...Friday? Good call, you're right.
everyday is Friday!
I hope he does go to Ohio. That way Peewee can smash his pathetic little body into the ground like he did in the Army game. Anybody see that clip? He caught Diggs in mid-air and plowed him!! Let Ohio get all these "5*" recruits and cry cause they can't win.
I'd rather them not get any 5 star recruits
I thought this was a pointless thread that had nothing to do with Michigan.
I hope he picks Ohio, so countess can shut him down when they play
Weren't people saying Ohio was full three scholarships ago?? I thought they already turned away one stud recruit because of it.
Meyer said on signing day they were at 81, but wouldn't say how he got down to that number...
I hope he picks a team that UM will never play in a meaningful game, which means he'll be a Terrapin.
Seriously, I expect either Auburn or OSU. My gut says OSU, but Auburn definitely is appealing if he feels that they'll have a decent passing attack.
But but but but...Nick Saban had to turn down deserving players who really wanted to come to Alabama!
I would expect Urban to accept his commit ment anyway and make the room by not renewing a 5th year/having someone get "injured" and not continue their career. They did turn Davonte Neal away, who although a great prospect is not Diggs.
I'm halfway down this thread and...no mention of Demar Dorsey!?
No "well if Diggs doesn't come, does that open a spot for the No Fly Zone?!"
Well folks, here it goes...demar dorsey. Demar Dorsey. DEMAR DORSEY. DEMAR DORSEY!!!
I think RR is recruiting him!
This is coming from SEC people, who know a thing or two about shady recruitments. Rumor has it, that less than two weeks before his decision, Diamond had all but left Auburn for dead as a viable option for his services. Something happened on his OSU visit, that really altered his opinion of his recruitment in a whole. I can tell you this, that in the past when something like this has happened, it usually involves that recruit having asked for something. Michigan is one of those schools that doesn't take part of anything remotely rule dodging, so if it was brought up to them, I'm certain it was shot down immediately. Take all this for what you will, but it looks like Michigan caught a break avoiding Diamond.
Sorry that this isn't on topic, but I don't know the process into posting your own topic.
Seems like there may be an interesting story there.
Just on pure speculation, I think that he did ask OSU for something. What that is, I'm not 100% sure, but I think it may have been a job for his Mother. Whether or not OSU was ready to grant his request, who knows. I think someone on that OSU staff may have offered something, and Urban turned him down flat. Urban may point blank lie about a lot of things, but he has never really been apart of anything like this. I think this gave Jordan the knowledge, that there was a team out there who would grant his request.
What seems weird to me is that anything (whatever it might be) happening with OSU would change his opinion regarding Michigan.
There are definitely rumors out there...
It was certainly odd to see OSU drop Diamond, despite their desperate need for tackles. It's not like Urban stops recruiting players, no matter how low the probability.
Like OSU, Michigan wasn't going to offer the things that Diamond and/or his camp wanted. It wasn't too hard to read the tea leaves after OSU dropped Diamond.
I am glad you know/think this about Michigan. I always wanted to think we wouldn't participate in this (or any "rule dodgin" as you call it - save extra stretching), but I was afraid it was my maize coloured glasses.
do others in the SEC think this about Michigan too?
To be honest, I would rather lose honourably - than win by rule dodging every time. And it seems pretty clear that Hoke agrees with this mindset.
We are not going to take bucknuts speculation on why THEY cooled on a 5 star are we? The mods had to clean up a lot of this type of talk on Friday, so unless there is some substance to this other than internet board postings we should not be perpetuating un-substantiated rumors.
Although I would hardly call this "bucknuts speculation", because the people who are talking about it, don't take part in speculation. Also, if we could only talk about confirme stuff, there wouldn't be much of a college football blog/forum presence in this country. That being said, if this is against board policy, I'd be more than happy to have it deleted.
FYI - it is really nice to have reasonable and well-informed "foreign presences" on the board. We get a bit inbred around here sometimes.
Where you can be whatever you want to be. For example, I am Derrick Rose.
As it was brought up and linked to numerous times in the days after his visit to Columbus and their boards started saying all this stuff about "wanting something" and Urban nipping it in the bud.
I appreciate your point about "confirmed stuff", but when you are accusing a recruit, one that Michigan just lost out on, of taking something that is a whole different ball game.
That I didn't know, and I do apologize. But, these are people not associated with OSU, and are just general SEC people who have their ears to the ground about these things.
Which is why I brought it up. I wouldnt be a bit surprised in the internet hater world we live in these days that the other SEC news that you are hearing NOW is just the same gossip that started in Buckeye blogs and traveled down south courtesy of the web. They only now care/are jumping on it because he went to a rival sec school late last Friday.
I think you bring up a good point, actually. His entire recruitment seemed sketchy. Loved Michigan for a long time, things seemed normal, then his Ohio visit happened and Urban cooled on him. That's extremely weird for a coach to cool on a 5-star player who's interested enough to take an official to their school a month before signing day. Combine that with Auburn coming out of nowhere (for a long time it was either UM or Arkansas) and their past run-ins with the NCAA (and the whole SEC thing).
This isn't sour grapes, I don't care about the kid anymore.
Once you get past the grouchy posters with thousands of "points", you'll find people that appreciate outside sources from other teams. Don't worry about the internet tough guys around here!
Like you did?
I am just saying I don't think it is right to say this kid is taking something when the only reference we truly have at this time are the posters on OSU boards. Especially, considering Hoke indicated he was still waiting on a AK and TX sized player.
We believe *Urban Meyer* trashing a kid by leaking to certain slanted, biased site that said kid wanted a job for his mom in return for services? Urban Meyer and his staff, you're going to believe them? GTFO.
Appreciate you contribution to the boards. What are you thoughts on the recent players who left the Alabama working with the banned booster to sell autographs?
I think the NCAA needs to investigate it, because it warrants it. I think a lot of people at Alabama just see the greater good, and they don't see what has been done to get there, wrong or not. I earnestly think it deserves to be investigated. Sorry it took me so long to respond, I had a last minute client.
Dad have a church?
I saw an article that Florida and Georgia were recruiting a kid and his gradfather ran a church. And that the coaches went to church with the player. And the church was suprised when they go a sizeable donation in the offering from Muschamp. What is legal and what is not?
My experience is either you love Michigan and what they stand for or you don't.
Diamond was certainly looking for MORE than Michigan could offer.
Diggs is a terd that won't flush.
A stubborn floater of a turd.
Arizona FTW #snakeoil
Greg Mattison is rivals.com Big10 recruiter of the year!
You created a profile just to hijack. Poor form. -1 imaginary internet point for you
I bet it's Auburn.
either Florida or Ohio.
now THIS is a worthless thread.
Money on flo rida
Is Flo Rida any relation to Will.I.Am?
I guess we will see on friday.
Both JC Shurburtt and Steve Wiltfong over on 247 seem to think its Maryland
That's where I hope he goes most. Not Ohio for obvious reasons, and Maryland is the least relevant nationally than the others.
Really hope this is right, ESPN's Jared Shanker seems to think he's going to OSU.
This is in alignment with Meyer saying he has got 81 schollies, which implies room for one more.
Midwest recruiting analyst? He lives in Columbus and only writes about Ohio. In his B1G recruiting summary he talked about what an amazing job Urban did. Then for Michigan he said they really benefited from the Ohio scandal and lack of coach. Implied it was all luck of circumstance. Funny how he didn't mention Ohio benefiting from the PSU dumpster fire.
HOPE HE PICKS OHIO SO Blake can shut him DOWN.GO BLUE!!!
I think your caps lock key is seriously broken.
So, Diggs is deciding between 3 schools. Two of the three are known to have fans who are more than willing to do what ever it takes to "help" recruit 5 star players. Good Luck Maryland, better hope Under Armor opens it's check book.
BREAKING NEWS: 5* ATH Stefon Diggs will sign with Ohio State friday, sources close to Good Counsel football and Diggs' family tell me.
That guy has like 50 followers. But a Ozone "insiders" said the samething yesterday. This what not be good, not be good at all. Look at it however you want, but Urban+Stafon+Braxton+Jalin Marshall= Lethal
Diggs does go to OSU, it shouldn't be that much of an issue. I mean when will he get the ball? Meyer is clearly building his offense around Dunn.
Please, that guy has like 60 followers.
I don't care if stefon picks Ohio; the game still has to be played on the field.
Thanks for your contributions. It won't be much longer, before you'll have enough points to start your own threads. Your insight is appreciated.
