Shane Morris need to text me back!

he does commit.
He's been infatuated with M for a year now. No one has really touched M in his mind in that time. I can't blame the kid for wanting to go out and see other campuses. But, I think the kid is blue inside and out.
Latest tweet from Laquon:
"Its a place i want to be and its a place i need to be. What to do?"
Sounds promising, but he's still a high school kid and could be referring to Cedar Point.
Good news for Michigan in the Laquon Treadwell sweepstakes?
Followed by a link to rivals.com. I don't have a subscription so...
Steve Wiltfong of 247 has this thread going on LaQuon, and just tweeted that he's talking to him now. If any updates do come soon, this would be a good place to look.
Steve Wiltfong said, "Just to throw it out there, but I wouldn't be surprised if Laquon Treadwell announces this weekend at The Opening. Not saying it will or it's set in stone. Just something to keep an eye on as we discuss the latest developments."
One can hope right? Go Blue!
Personally I think this kid is milking the recruiting process for all it's worth. I do think he loves UM and has it as the school to beat right now, but he's letting these other schools stroke his ego right now. Cant say I blame him. If I was a top recruit I may do that too.
But if I really did love UM, I'd commit to save my spot before someone, aka Alvin Bailey, takes it for me.
Milking the recruiting process? You do relize it's only July? The kid hasn't even started his Senior year of High School.
...and it's not like we're forced to read his tweets.
Take your time Laquon...just pick Michigan in the end.
that I agree with your comment.
Alvin Bailey, who has stated that distance from home will be a factor and who's being recruited by a bunch of other schools, too?
Yeah, I guess you've got a point. It was a good thing Chris Fox committed before Laremy Tunsil took his spot, too...
The big question I have, is why can't we seem to pull in big time guys at a skill position of such need like wide reciever. Don't get me wrong, I like the recievers we have recieved commits from, but I would think, with Shane and the coaches, big time 4 or 5 star guys would be salivating to come here. Also, how in the world can ND always have great recruiting classes when they completely suck year in and year out. Why would any top notch athlete want to go there?
All top recruits are Catholics and have excellent grades. It makes sense.
Notre Dame has a stud THROWING quarterback recruit every year. Michigan has had Nick Sheridan, Steve Threet, Tate Forcier, and Denard Robinson for the past four years. These kids haven't seen Michigan have a legitimate passer and receiver since they were in about 7th grade.
Shane Morris is a step in the right direction, but Hemingway's 34 receptions and Gallon's 31 aren't very convincing for guys who can go to Oklahoma or Oklahoma State or USC...
There should be a disclaimer on your post: *Projected stud QB
Logic says you're right. And Treadwell would be proof positive. But it can't be emphasized enough: teenage kids don't tend to take the long view. Right now, when many WR prospects think of Michigan, they first think of Denard-ball. But once kids start seeing M throw the ball more -- either via Gardner or Shane -- then the program will go back to being WRU.
Best line heard on Saturdays in the future (hopefully). " Morris to Treadwell down the sideline touchdown Michigan!"
I encourage anyone to go to rivals site, go to Treadwells profile, and look at his pics from mid/late 2011, and look at the recent one posted i beleive today.
Treadwell got ridiculously RIPPED/HUGE in 9 months. Incredible. Don't know if anyone noticed this.
Wiltfong just posted a VIP thread with a comment from Treadwell about all this. I'm not a member so I can't read it, but anyone who is, here's the link.
but that link description really has me itching to know.
He basically says that he's very close to a decision, but not sure if he will be announcing at The Opening.
Mods: If that gives away too much, feel free to delete and spank me.
I think the post should stay but please leave the S&M out of future posts.
Sarah Hughes just tweeted
'@SarahMHughes87: I asked @SuccessfulQuon if he was planning on announcing his decision soon, and he replied, "I'm not sure." #waitinggame'
'@SarahMHughes87: Now @SuccessfulQuon tells me his decision is indeed coming soon. #team134'
I'm not well-versed in the twitter syntax. Did the hastag #134 come from LT or Sarah?
That would be from Sarah.
The #team134 hashtag coming from either LT or Sarah can only mean good news. I'm getting no work done now. Commence F5 barrage.
Hearing from ESPN Treadwell will not be out there until 7 so you might want to give F5 a little break...then again, maybe not?
Commence Freak Out! JK, but seriously...good news.
Ah yes, here it is.
@SuccessfulQuon: So much going on my decision coming soon.
Crack job though, Sarah.
I'll take an actual on-topic quote over a cryptic tweet any day. And considering that this entire thread was devoted to interpreting that tweet which Sarah just de-mystified with a brief conversation (that she provided for free, unlike the recruiting sites), I'd say nice work Sarah.
Alright. It was mostly a joke. But I think you are overselling (in a Magnusian way) her tweet to state that she de-mystified LT's tweet.
I hope Treadwell joins Michigan's '13 recruiting class, and Sarah Hughes breaks the news. Sorry Sarah, keep up the good work.
lol'd at my desk at work after reading this, causing co-workers to look in my general direction. Thanks.
Edit: lol @ the Flamebait too, as I actually thought it was pretty funny. no /s.
And make the fonts 25% next time when you open mgoblog.com.
Could all of this just be Laquon seeking some attention during the Opening?
that would be IMPOSSIBLE!!
Wonder who's going to be the quarterback of them team im on? Shane !
Well, there's a 7-on-7 tournament at the Opening...so that's probably all it means.
And he's gonna be so happy with Shane getting him the ball that he'll want that to continue for the next four years.
Mike Farrell tweeted that Treadwell could be making his decision this weekend and got a retweet from Treadwell. Buckle up??!
When Brian posted that Manningham video I had a very hard time not thinking about Morris to Treadwell. Here's hoping we can get another one of those special QB-WR combos.
Has retweeted a couple tweets about how he might commit to Michigan this weekend. Commence freak out.
He hasn't said he would commit to Michigan specifically in his tweets. But everyone else, regardless of allegiance is saying Michigan is sitting in the drivers seat.
The meltdown here will be entertaining if he is just having fun with this.
Well at this point this thread has over 12,000 views and around 100 comments over some tweets, so yes there will be some sort of meltdown if he is jerking us around. On the flipside can you imagine the excitement if he commits? His hello post will have massive numbers and most likely the site will be on overload. Lol
With the temperature reaching 100F tomorrow, I will already have had a meltdown, so anything Laquon does will be fine.
On the other hand, his commiting to Michigan would be pretty cool.
What safety measures could he be talking about?
In other news, I'm going on a road trip this weekend. Are there any safety measures I should follow while on this road trip?
