this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
TomVH: Matt Godin Announcement
What constitutes very public? Like british royal wedding public?
Like not silent, out in the open. You got to speak jive, young bleed.
That makes no sense, since every announcement is out in the open.
Tomvh repeatedly saying it will be very public would mean wtka to me, since he is committing in person.
I took the comment as being a bit cryptic, as everyone has been asking him who the silent commit is for weeks.
could he be announcing on the Michigan Insider on WTKA? Sam said that after the commitment of James Ross, a recruit called over the break and said that he wanted to announce on the ariwaves as well. Just a thought?
you would do poorly with Beaver speak if you can't decode that
as to what public means is one of those planes that makes letters out of smoke.
No, that's only semi-public.
Streaking in the quad, public.
Let's just hope he doesn't bring a green hat.
Royal Weddings are preceded by several military executions, to raise the moral of the wedding audience.
No more hats or discussions about hats, please.
Would you prefer more discussion of tats, then?
We can talk about tats on Mgoboard until the end of time, which, in all likelihood will probably continue for the useful life of this blog.
With the Morris commitment, is he now committing as a QB?
This Witfong guy is very subtle.
Is it just me, or does this seem like something else is happening here that we don't know about? The only player there has been a bigger deal about a commitment from lately has been Zeke Pike. It seems to me there's more than meets the eye, here.
there will be a second suprise commitment at the same press conference and we'll get another pair of commitments.
highly doubtful but arent they really good friends?
This is one recruit that is a bit baffling. TomVH said he is very much still wide open in his recruitment but we seemed to have stopped recruiting him. I can only assume that we must be looking really good with Day and Pipkins. Also Jarron Jones is visiting in June I believe. So that's my wild guess at it.
Recently got a UM offer and a DE/ RB prospect from 2013.
He's good friends with Godin
TomVH: Matt Godin Announcement
I think the title pretty much says it all.
Very open, probably means the opposite of sending it to Jim Tressel's e-mail.
That was plenty open to everyone except the people who needed to know, so the equivalent would be the news being released to everyone but Michigan fans, and us not finding out until next February or something.
The only thing that would surprise me about Godin committing tomorrow, is if he and O'brien committed at the same time tomorrow.
He is posting it on a billboard..wait, no nevermind, that is sparty.
For some reason, every time I read Tom saying that Godin's announcement "will be very public," I hear Maude Lebowski saying, "He's a good man -- and thorough."
MOAR COMMITS PLZ
I'm guessing maybe radioshow call in?
Also, any chance if he does commit that we can get confirmation if he was that "silent" commit on defense from a bunch of weeks back?
And if he's not? weeeee! let the rumor mill begin if he's not!
Granted, he probably is.
He will call coach Dumbtonio to tell him he is not coming to EL, then he'll pull out the mighty UM hat & we will get a HELLO post shortly thereafter...
Don't stoop to sparty level by using stupid nicknames. I went on their board for about 5 seconds before my eyes started bleeding due to the name calling. They only refer to Hoke as "cHoke." The man hasn't even coached a game for Michigan yet.
Flaimbait it all mofo night also !!!
Dumbtonio isn't funny or clever.
WHERE IS TIGERS08 WHEN YOU NEED HIM?
Tigers06 and he only shows up at random but awesome times
I know. I was both riffing on the sense of urgency to find further details that most MGoBloggers have and referring to the fact that he has clarified Godin's position in the past.
He's going to publicly announce that..
- "I do not like hardware/trophies/titles etc."
- "I am not a NATIONAL recruit"
- "I am only interested in early playing time"
- "I don't like competition"
- "I'll be going to MICHIGAN...like every other high profile recruit in the state"
Don't know if it will be a big pickup or not, that remains to be seen, but he will be blue.
247 sports would be my guess.
We have 10 + 1 commitments and more to come.
I should pinch myself and wake up.
Also - Ron Thompson and Matt Godin (& Dan O Brien) book them a seat in the Big House locker room
According to the ESPN rankings on the board Godin is a higher rated prospect then O'Brien?? Just interesting to see.
If he choses us msu RCMB will have a fit
Wont be so bad. They've pretty much conceded him to us.
But oh, my Kingdom for a Burbridge meltdown thread...
