TomVH: Demetrius Hart Eliminates Auburn *Press Conference*
Explosion in 3..2..1.
Relax, folks...Denard just came back from Friday and reports that DH does indeed go Blue.
If you wahnt to leeve
...have him bring back a few hot stock tips.
He also said that paisley and black are in for the fall season.
Can I do a black velvet jacket with a paisley frilly shirt?
You have my all-time favorite user name. What's Major Major up to these days?
He's raised the missions again.
One way or another, we'll probably be seeing him at Cowboys' Stadium in 2012...
I like the daring position there.
You have a strong mastering of the obvious.
Yeah, but wil he be playing Linebacker or Runningback in that game???
Urban gets his ass kicked...
Rich Rod would totally kick Saban's ass ninja style, so replace Saban with Rich Rod and Urban with Saban and we're all set.
Also says Dix is 100 % committed to Alabama.. need the snake oil
he'll be in class in february. enrolling early
Sam Webb said that Dix was NOT planning on enrolling early.
snake oil works on 100%, right? hopefully
Snake Oil: 60% of the time, it works every time...
I will always love me some Anchorman. +1
While I let myself entertain thoughts of us Dee's interest in M somehow swaying Ha'sean, this would seem to suggest that's not going to happen. While this may raise concern that Dee will head to Bama, take a minute to recall your own experiences at that age. Sure I was happy to know that some of my friends would be joining me at Michigan, but many of my best friends did not. It never entered my mind that I would pick a college based on what my friends were doing. It was a very personal decision. I chose Michigan because it was a great school, but more importantly the right place for me.
Dee is facing the same decision. Whatever that may be, we'll all know soon. He seems like he's given this a lot of careful consideration and has good support from his family. I think that bodes well for us, but will accept his decision either way.
I sure hope you would accept his decision either way. I don't think that you have much of a choice.
Let's hope he "goes ****" on Friday!
as usual you make my pepe very happy...That said I will be much happier when Bama is eliminated
Either you want to do dirty, dirty things to Dee Hart or you own a small Mexican guy. Can't figure out which.
My keyboard just received a beer bath
+1 to you Sir!
Thanks I needed that laugh! +1
Slavery insinuation aside, I am really pulling for him owning a small Mexican guy named Pepe. To quote Sweet Caroline, that would be "tan BUENO!"
...feels like the right place.
The only way it could have gone better is if he had committed... riiiiiiiight...
On the topic of positive recruiting notes... It looks like we may be back in the hunt for Wayne Lyons. The article says he's been talking to Denard a lot and is looking at taking an official up here.
I'll second your Wahoooooo and raise you a Hip Hip Hurray!
I'll see your wahoo and.... eww.
Only bad news about that is he supposedly tore his mcl recently according to this blog http://mgorecruit.blogspot.com/
best of luck to him and us.
Per a Chad Simmons retweet, just a sprain. Everybody do the sprain!
I don't know whether to up vote you or neg you for the Saved By the Bell reference...but I will neg myself for knowing that it was a SBTB reference...sigh.
I've never heard SBTB and "neg" in the same sentence.
Lets watch in slo-mo Auburns bubble burst....
reminds me of that darn razor commercial thats on espn 1000 times a day
Every time I see that I can't help but wondering if they actually shot a puck in a guy's face just for the ad
You mean the one with the chick taking her top off? There is more to that commercial than that? I must zone out afterwards....
I bought the razor, and it doesn't feel like that. Just get a balloon
I can't stop watching that. It's mesmerizing...
whhhheeeeeeeeeeeeee for ddddddddeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Thanks again Tom!
But every time I see your comments, I actually think it's Brian for a second.
It's weird and entertaining all at the same time.
I feel like every time you post Brian is just going "eeeehhhhhhhhhhhhh", in a semi-disgusted, exasperated way.
If dee hart has already chosen UM, why just eliminate Auburn? Does this mean his mind isn't made up? Am I the only one who thinks of good news in such a skeptical way?
I think he is probably just playing the game.
You overanalyze dee like you overanalyzed chemistry. we both graduated tho lol!
I have a bad feeling about this for some reason. That's no moon...
*Waits anxiously for the "Demetrius Hart eliminates Alabama" thread*
Can you feel it.....
Can you sense it....
Dateline - October 10/8/10 - Dee commits.....
Dateline - October 10/9/10 - Michigan destroys MSU, goes 6-0, start making bowl plans
Dateline - October 10/11/10 - 97.1 'The Ticket' has a serious meltdown show....
The world is coming back to order.....
I think they hear us coming...
And they are all quietly cursing behind closed doors knowing that a new dawn of domination is coming and there is nothing they can do to stop it...........
This offense is absolutely blowing up. Once we beat MSU this weekend, order will be restored.
There will still be some unfinished business just to the south of us. Only then will everything be right again.......
Ever more shocking proof that Rivals doesn't know what they are talking about when they said Dee "LOVED" Auburn and rated it 9 out of 10. This follow-up article provided by TomVH says he eliminated Auburn immediately after going as he didn't see himself there.
They quoted Dee's take on the visit. What do you want them to do, say "Although 4 star RB Demetrius Hart says his visit was a 9 out of 10, he's actually lying"?
I'd rather they report the facts and let everyone else decipher whether he's telling the truth.
In the end, Rivals is a business that focus on their bottom line than providing real accurate information.
why go to Alabama? If they happen to sign a higher rated recruit next year or the year after you, you may well become a victim of the Saban oversigning.
Alternatively, you also may get one of their mysterious unnecessary medical red shirts.
Moreover, if you get a degree from Alabama, you will be treated like a God in that state for employment, but who wants to live there full time? Michigan is a national (and international) degree that will open many doors!
All Michigan football players receiving a degree get treated pretty nice as well with hook-ups for jobs. One big happy family and connections.
Seems like good news but what about his friend's friend's twitter talking about his facebook page?
I mean that's when you know its official.....
Hard to bet against a best friend having a lot of influence on a decision
I haven't even seen the usual post-visit fluff article.
I agree with the theory that he likes Michigan better but Alabama is closer to home. I think we overcome that and he goes Blue.
But with his skill set, wouldn't it be more fun for a kid to be in the backfield with D Rob?
A Michigan Wolverine...
Saban has a weak pitch (even if that was for LSU). Dee is going *b*l*u*e.
I don't have a good feeling on this one. I sure hope Sam Webb does.
Sam has a gut feeling.... This is Lock City USA. Hello.......
This class could be scary if we can put together a few more wins here, my fingers are crossed.
"The problem with the Heisman is only one man wins it. We got bigger goals." Denard Robinson via twitter
Wow, very good quote but I didn't know Shoelace was on twitter. It is great to see that he has the right mindset being a team-first player.
...my stress level just dropped a few notches.
Just can't see Dee going to Bama.
Make an intelligent and careful collegiate decision based upon the most important criterion:
THE SCHOOL WITH THE COOLEST HELMET: (Hint: It ain't the red one.)
...and always remember: Better dead than red.
Ricardo Mller unfriended basically all the Michigan fans that he had on his facebook. What should i think of this move? Just coincidence to this weeks announcement?
I think we need to respect a recruit's wishes when he wants to make a decision and keep people in the dark just prior to it. The posting earlier today reading into Dee Hart's post on Ricardo's facebook page might be stealing Hart's thunder, and I think that starts to irritate these guys. I know, I know, it's the internet age and whatever's out there is seemingly fair game. But I would bet if we cooled off on some of this "stalking" then we might actually get more information from these guys via more traditional routes, aka Sam Webb, TomVH, "insiders," etc...
I agree whole heartedly, but not even Sam Webb made the cut of who he unfriended. I just wanted an opinion from Tom.
You should think that he realized it was not a good idea to have 2000 people as friends that you dont know.
Is anyone else worried about those assault allegations at his high school against the Varsity team by the freshman who came in the wrong door of the locker room after practice? Honestly, if it's found that he took part in any way, I want his offer revoked. I don't care how good he is...
In case nobody noticed: http://wdbo.com/localnews/2010/09/dr-phillips-hs-freshman-footba.html
Easy negative Nancy. Don't be such a buzz kill. I don't think RR would accept his commitment on friday if he had anything to do with that story. That's assuming it is an accurate article.
It's been almost a month since this happened, apparently there's been no developments....for cryin' out loud, they are fucking ALLEGATIONS at this stage without any sort of detail.
Poor form, sir.
Two thumbs up!!!
TomVH just tweeted that Dee will be having a press conference at Dr Phillips on friday at noon. I presume the announcement will come then.
I find myself wondering which recruit I am going freak out about committing next after Dee's decision. Frost and Zettel seem like good candidates.
Both sound like excellent candidates. But I think the answer is Avery Walls... who will also be enrolling early and thus deciding soon. Frost and Zettel are not enrolling early.
Ah, but Frost and Zettel are the next two that have been so-called Michigan leans. Walls doesn't quite fit. Zettel will be Blue eventually. He's looking for success, he'll get it. Frost is looking at out-of-state schools, I think Frost is the guy. That he's not enrolling early makes it better because the freakout can last into the dead of winter. Commence freaking.
I added this to the original post, but to make sure everyone sees it, Demetrius sent me a text saying that he is holding a press conference on Friday at noon.
be as awesome as the Stokes announcement? Who wants to work from 11:30AM - 4PM this Friday?
Whatever happened to the 3 star corner Daren Kitchen? I was reading months ago that he was a sure Wolverine when we would offer him and we did and then would be announcing soon. Now I'm reading Texas A&M and us are his final two. I'm not saying he is a high caliber recruit but any secondary depth helps tremendously. Any news would be great. Thanks.
Friday cannot get here soon enough!
Why would a recruit schedule a visit to Michigan after he's commited to 'Bama.
I have a feeling - he will announce on Friday and come down for a visit to his new home.
Wonder if he has any other visits scheduled to 'Bama after the announcement - hope not.
Dr. Philips/ Pahokee/ Cass Tech - now we only need to tap Glenville/ Rennaisance and we'll be unstoppable.
One of the top 5 backs in the country just named Bama as his leader. This is the best news yet that Dee is going Blue. No way that both Crowell and Hart choose Bama.
The gif above and debate re: Saban vs. RR in a ninja fight to the death (though that was Kung Fu in the gif) got me wondering.
Dee goes Blue and is supposedly bringing HaHa back up again for a visit. We have a mystery 5 star coming for Iowa (maybe Trey DePriest). How much of a coup if we pull Dee, Depriest, and HaHa from Saban?
I am sure that Dee's family is doing the math. He can be in Michigan's class of 20 and probably start next year, or he can be in Alabama's class of 300, be asked to grey shirt, and be fourth on the depth chart in his senior year.
He certaining is not in the Coffee, Ingram, Richardson mold.
Hart, Frost, Zettel, Walls...thats what I'm talk'in about!!
Bama was looking at Dee playing some defense possibly but their intent was for him to be a slot receiver and not a runningback. He comes to AA and he is the ultimate sidekick to Denard. Who wouldn't he want that?
