...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.
Treadwell to Ole Miss
Would have been nice to have him, but this beats the alternatives.
Yeah who knows maybe Treadwell's fake too.
Well I blame Standifer as he is obviously a top notch recruiter in his own right.
This just makes me more disappointed things didn't work out with Standifer.
whateva - I'm tired of that whole thing.
Who cares anymore. He wasn't even considering Michigan these last months.
The classic who cares post... (obviously you cared enough to post)...
Considering there are hundreds of posts/comments a week saying we need PLAYMAKERS!!!!!!!! comments I would say a lot of people care.
As a fan base I also think UM has a tough time when we "lose" players who were thought to be UM leans.
I agree with your last point though- once UM was not longer a candidate I moved on pretty quick.
Good luck at Ole Miss Treadwell
Michigan lost Treadwell a long time ago. Saying who cares about a kid that was no longer considering us is hardly disingenuous.
This is finally over....
Not sure what you're talking about? He's totally gonna be part of our transfer class of 2014

I don't get any kid playing for a school with such a racist history, but whatever...it's not me...not my family. Enjoy the pleasant land of Mississippi.
but....the Blindside was based on an Ole Miss player...
I am in Starkville, MS. The difference in cultures between Ole Miss and Mississippi State is huge. Ole Miss is known as the most rascist school in the deep south. Here is a link to the "race riots" on the Ole Miss campus following the presidential election. It's basically some dipshit white frat boys feeling disenfranchised.
I'm sure Laquon's mother is so proud.
Disclaimer - this post is not meant to be political, but to illustrate the problems at Ole Miss. Race riots following a presidential election, no matter the outcome, are to be scorned.
I was browsing cnn and mgoblog and I just happen to find this cnn article on the front page.
Thought it was highly coincidental. Or I guess not?
Pretty sure I saw he liked Sunny D not Tang
Sundresses. That is all
I'm not sure a sundress is appropriate attire for a man of your age.
He dropped us long ago. We have a great class without him. Go Blue!
doing something to attract the recruits as they continue to get some highly ranked players. They looked good in their bowl game and seem to be a team on the rise.
works every time.
I started to freak out becaue over on 247sports, the M logo was by his name. Once you click his name at the bottom it says Ole Miss. What a tease
Oh yeah that guy...
We have such a dominating class now. I am more concerned of guys that want to transfer out if they dont play right away.
Wish he could have gone blue, he has tremendous talent. However, it doesn't really seem like he fit the mold of a "Michigan Man" it seemed as if he wanted to go to a program that he would immediatly be "the guy." Also seemed like he wanted to go to a program that he believed he would be bigger than.
And you know all this stuff about him....how?
You're not going to find a lot of kids at the skill positions who don't want to be the guy. Once you start getting recruited by BCS schools, you are likely coming from a place where you were the guy and want it to stay that way. Have no problem with that as long as they can back it up on the field.
He was looking at schools with a more effective pass offense. We had far less pass yardage than OSU, OU, and Ole Miss. Someone should have told him Denard wasn't going to be QB next year...
Whatever, this OL class will make the receivers we have look like 4* guys. Would have been nice to have him, he really is that good, but I'm not losing sleep over it.
We can officially retire Stefon Diggs as the "Lulz I bet [Player X] is the silent commit" player du jour.
However, Alex Kozan will live on forever.
Some names just won't die...
Frost, Kozan, Hart, Diggs, Dorsey.
Don't get it! He picked a school that went 7-6. We blew that out of the water!
WTF? He might see 2 bowl games in 5 years at Ole Miss.
Lol @5 years.
Step 1) committ to Ole Miss
Step 2) fade into obscurity
Step 3) Profit
Of the hundreds of players , 2 isn't bad.
Hell they made a movie about a player from Ole Miss like 4 years ago.
Wasn't he the will you teach me to football guy in the longest yard?
I'd pick Ole Miss ( and its racist student population) over Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, UCLA, USC, and friends too.
EDIT: rumor has it that we backed off due to grades. I'd still think Oklahoma and other schools wouldn't back off the top wideout in the country because of grades. NCAA standards are the same all around.
WTF do YOU know about the Ole Miss student population? Your statement parallels what you deplore about racism, which is painting groups of people with a single brush stroke.
Nice work hypocrite.
Good luck to him, but thankful the drama is over.
Crete-Monee High School can now officially change its nickname to "The Fighting Nefarious Eduardos."
MICHIGAN WIFFED HOEK CANT CLOTHES THIS IS bULL!!!1!!1
Yeah, so everyone saw this coming. Good luck to him. Too bad he didn't choose the winged helmet, but we will be all right.
I do hope the color Green turns to Blue, however . . .
Pretty sure the lure of attending a top shelf University like Ole Miss with its lofty academic reputation was too much for him to resist.
The man's gotta think about life after football you know.
Wait, I don't get it, you guys seem to be implying that something other than Football and Academics went into his decision to attend Ole Miss. I mean what other facto.... Oh I get it.
