this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I'm guessing this is referring to Paul Thurston, who is scheduled to announce in 5 minutes. Hopefully Tom has some positive info here, but it could be he's just excited about the announcement either way.
at 1 PM mountain time, so 3 PM here in Michigan
Oops. Thanks for the clarification. And Wilson isn't meeting with his coaches until 2:45.
Maybe Tom was just giving us plenty of warning in case of hard-to-fasten buckles.
Crypic Tom = Good News
Silent Tom = Bad News
I'm going with good news on this one.
those who are driving when Kalis, Wormley, and Wilson simultaneously commit - thus inducing an intense orgasmic experience in the car. Thanks Tom.
Buckle up = Safety .... Safety Friday? In pairs? Wilson please! Perhaps. Apologies for the double post im predicting will happen with my droids mgoblog app.
Wow, great thinking. Hopefully you're right and Jarrod is about to go blue!
Good call. Of all the funny posts on here and people trying to figure out what this mean I like yours the most. Today is all about safety so bartender may I please have another.
But it's actually pretty accurate. Oh well, I didn't really want to get off my computer today.
Gonna be one hell of a good ride............
she follows Tom on Twitter?
Don't take this to mean that I think Kalis will commit today or anything, but it does occur to me that Wormley and Wilson are both from Ohio, and if they go blue, that is definitely paving the way for Kalis a little bit. He'll only be one of the Ohioans heading to Michigan. Just might make it a little easier for him to deal with the public opinion down there.
Today's not Saturday.
It's Friday, Friday, gotta commit on Friday.
Valenti tweeted that Mahone canceled his ND visit after going to MSU, so that might be something.
don't think it's going out on a limb to say that's probably not what Tom is talking about.
Tom don't care bout no MSU.
And yes, i know that's a double negative. But Tom does not cover MSU
Or this could all be a refrence to Braylon's car troubles this morning
what a cruel joke that would be...
I was two minutes late, but at least I included a link.
WOTS is that Michael Rosenberg has written a long expose in the Freep that details the shocking story of how Brady Hoke has flouted NCAA rules on how often he can point his fingers at things. Supposedly Brandon is giving a presser shortly to address the allegations of excessive finger-pointing.
I think I was starting to get heart palpatations (sp?) reading the beginning of that first sentence.
I saw that, but didn't pay much attention. When I saw mention of "PEDs", I jumped to the conclusion that it was Performance Enhancing Drugs. If I had read the rest of the article, I would have seen that it meant "Pointing Extended Digits"! This is why I need to stop assuming things so readily . . .
Don, you are consistently one of my favorite posters on this site (if I were a recruit, you would make my top 5), but man am I pissed at you! Until I read the very last line, I actually got a knot in my stomach. Well played!
Needs chili and chopped onions
Chili is for people from Cincinnati or Texans
But I guess he's talking good news here. That's what Tom's mysterious posts usually mean.
I can't help but wonder if Tom is just messing with us. His tweets are just going to become more and more cryptic:
"Attention Michigan fans: the weather is 78 and sunny..."
"The human torch was denied a loan. Wink wink."
I feel like most people would have so much fun with that if they were in Tom's shoes, but he mostly performs admirably and doesn't lead us on for no reason.
I love that last one, and I'm just trying to think of the ruckus it would cause here. Everyone would be debating who the fastest recruit is (Human torch?) and what the hell it means to be denied a loan, and I can see Tom just sitting on his couch reading it, chuckling to himself.
The combination of these two posts honestly made me laugh out loud. I wonder how much of these threads that are created because of his twitter Tom actually reads. He must have a good laugh even though you are right he does not lead us on like I would be tempted to do.
Tom VH just burped! I could be wrong, but I think he is saying that we are going to have a "hiccup" in our recruiting efforts! Oh noes! We must find the hidden meaning in this cryptic communication . . .

"Buckle up" to me usually means we're in for a long/rough/bumpy ride.
As an avid seat belt wearer, to me "Buckle Up" means that a ride is about to begin, bumpy or otherwise. I see it as another way to say that things about to take off or get moving.
I disagree... its a very good game but I think Donkey Kong is the best video game ever.
GUNNER KIEL!!?!!!?!?? I kid, I kid...maybe, er wait what?
Buckle up implies a wild ride....like a roller coaster.
That means ups and downs. I think this could be good and/or bad.
(People ususally use "buckle up" when things are going to get bumpy or crazy. I don't see it used that often in a positive way, but... of course I hope this is the uncommon ussage.)
I don't have a Scout subscription, does anyone know who this is a picture of?
That's Chris Wormley
You receive the gold medal. The other posters could not answer as quickly as you. WINNER!
<insert generic redundant seconds too late post>
to know that's Chris Wormley!
The article also talks about "what's next" but it may be highlighting his visit this weekend.
So that no one ever makes the same mistake I did:
So you don't make the same mistake next time you make one of those, it's "Wormley" bitches
