I don't think they changed Les at all actually

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
Chad Simmons from Scout tweeted that Demetrius will be making his decision next week, and I confirmed that with Demetrius tonight. I'll update when I have more. He is still going to Alabama this weekend.

He must be waiting to make sure we can paste at least 1 B10 team before committing. Well played Demetrius
"I hope I can get a bunch of championships - like 15"
Is it a bad sign that he is going to decide after his visit to Bama and not this week like it was suppose to be previously or just kind of meh?
Me fail english thats unpossible!
Even IF he goes with Bama, don't underestimate RR's snake oil. It's apparently pretty strong stuff
Dee is enrolling early so RichRod would have to start the heavy dose because he wouldn't have until signing day haha
Nick Saban is snake oil on steroids compared to snake oil on Joe Tiller.
Question: Does snake oil have any effect on a snake?
We ARE Michigan....COME GET SOME!!!
Its made from bits of real snake, so you know its good.
and 60% of the time....it works everytime
My self-esteem is directly related to my MgoPoints.
It's a formidable scent... It stings the nostrils. In a good way.
..... I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.

sweet ass sweet is bad ass bad.
as a moisturizing agent. Although it could tend to make dirt stick.
We do the Hoke-y Pokey cause he'll turn this team around. That's what it's all about.
I am starting to have dreams about Roundtree lighting up Purdue this year at rate of 15 catches for 250 yards. Let it be done.
Gasp. Hold breath. Turn Blue!
Yes. It is, if not bad, at least a worrying sign. Remember that for months, Michigan was his self proclaimed leader, despite his other visits. Now he has been quoted as saying he has no leader, and he will announce after a visit to another school. that's not a great trendline.
"Everyone gets dumped Gabe. Let me give you some advice: a little coverup on your Adams Apple will make it appear smaller. Which will make you appear less like a transvestite."
A lot of them say there's no leader when it gets close to their decision so it's not predictable.
I like this response.

A backfield of Shoelace & Dee sounds pretty good to me

Tell him dennisblundon would love to see him go blue. If that doesn't do it somebody get Ricardo on this ASAP.
You know he's blue.
You KNOW he's blue.

im lovin the optimism. i really hope you are right
Good sign for us IMO! If he was seriously giving Bama some consideration, he would probably want more time after his visit with them to mull all the options over.
If nothing else, at least the Dee Hart saga will be over shortly and we can all stopmsitting on pins and needles.
Thanks as always for the update TomVH.

These kids emotions run high after a visit and their opinions of the most recently visited school will be highest right after that visit, aka high opinions for Bama next week when he makes his decision. This is of course provided that he enjoys the game and Bama wins,both of which are very likely. This makes me more nervous than ever, but I'm still keepin' my maize and blue fingers crossed.

I'm not saying he's choosing Michigan, but if he's already set the date, doesn't it likely mean that he's pretty much already made his decision? I mean, his visit to Alabama could potentially pursuade him, but he's already visited there and knows all about that school. I don't think anything spectacular is going to happen on his visit to change his mind if he's already made it. That is, I don't think anything spectacular that is not a recruiting violation is going to happen - - having smoking hot girls show me a good time on campus would likely change my mind about anything . . .
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
He's had that teammate of his whispering "Alabama" in ear and Ingram is more than likely to leave Alabama after this year (unless an NFL strike is 100% inevitable which it may be) so Saban is telling him he can step right into the lineup versus our situation with five guys already in the running back queue. The timing on this one makes me nervous.
and I hope Dee is too. But has anybody thought about the possibility that the only reason he is going to visit Alabama this weekend is to get sideline passes to watch 2 top 10 teams (Alabama and Florida) play? If I was going to Michigan, I wouldn't make that known before I had a chance to see this big game. I would wait until after the visit, make sure I was OK with my previous decision after seeing two of the nations best teams play, and then put on the block M hat next week.....
What young kid who loves football would not want the opportunity to watch Alabama / Florida for free on the sidelines? Hell, I am 43 and a UofM fan and I would love to be on the sidelines watching this game for free, as well....
“Oh Yeah, what he said forgodsakes...” - -
So, in your opinion, does that bode well for us?
i only respect other superfans
Recruits talk to TomVH in confidence. I'd rather Tom refrain from giving his opinion, out of respect for the recruits and so future recruits know he won't go and broadcast his "insider information" that was told to him off-the-record. Of course, keep all the on-the-record stuff coming, Tom!
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
I don't think Turbo's request is out of bounds. Tom is professional enough not to leak any information told to him in confidence, but recruits also don't always have their minds 100% made up and Tom can get a feel for which way a recruit is leaning before the decision becomes official.
I swear I read somewhere that Dee is only going to check out Bama with some friends, but doesn't have any serious interest in matriculating there himself. Can't remember where I read that now though...
Pretty sure that's what he said about Arkansas.
He has been high on each team he's visited immediately after the visit. I don't think he'll make any rash decisions -- hopefully the fact that he already set a date for his announcement implies that he already knows who he's signing with (and hopefully that'd be the team that he has already taken an official visit with).
Well hopefully its late next week and not on Sunday after the game.
I don't like the fact that its a big game at Bama and one of his best friends is in his ear to join him.
CHARLES WOODSON DOWN THE SIDELINE
I for some reason have a bad feeling about this. I dont know why, I just do.
Believe in RR. Finally time for optimisim.
No.1 in total offense, No.1 in total offense, No.1 in total offense.... That's what I keep telling myself, you should try it.
several consecutive years of dong punch can do that to a person's expectations. things are getting better.
and we don't ever expect good things to happen to them.
This commitment is 2 years in the works. Lets hope he goes Blue. I have a feeling this would be a game-changer on the recruiting trail with other SECland recruits.
So is it next week as in early next week or as in sat next week at the Michigan state game? If I recall correctly he was planning on come up to a2 for that game or Iowa.
Can't wait. Thanks TomVH.
but it looks like the F5 key is going to get a workout next week.
Stokes announcement? As drawn out as the McGuffie wait? As ridiculous as the Big Will AAA game liveblog?
TUNE IN NEXT WEEK AND FIND OUT!
I don't think masturbating is going to help anything, Blue.
But better safe than sorry, right?
This thread would definitely get me to commit.
To M or the other team pursuing me, I'm not sure, but one or the other for sure.
It won't hurt anything either.
Tell that to...
two lady gaga references in two straight nights, i dont know what to think of this
While Dee's commitment may not make or break Michigan football, it will certainly make or break my day. AMHG, we'll call it even if we get this one.
Colors That Float
Thinking nothing but positive thoughts. Come on Dee...Let's Go Blue!!!
