to play football, not to play trumpet
You are breaking the internet.
and my wrist
I was poking at my smart phone excitedly and cracked the screen...
It was with your finger.
Ooh, Kate Upton! ...
Still mesmerized ...
Um, what was this thread about?
Oh, right. Welcome back, Trey!!!!!!!!!!!!
Commence pos-bang thread? Muppets? All of the above?
Denard is happy too!!!
Burke is Back!
Hooray! Now I can focus on real-life things.
"That's my point guard"
Oh, hey there.
Woo! Not only good for us, but a sensible decision on his part.
news to start the week. With Spike coming, PG is in pretty good shape.
agreed. excited to watch his stock skyrocket. With a good tourney run, the kid could be a sure first rounder
A little something for the ladies!
And thanks to Trey. I think he should make it three years at Mich to match his name!!!! (too much to ask for? I think not!!)
what does jordan taylor have to do with this thread (carlton jk)
If so, this is AWESOME!!!!
Yep, and they are also sending out the text alerts as well. Just got one a couple minutes ago. but of course I saw it on the blog first!
Wow! Second greatest feeling of the week so far! (Had my first little boy yesterday!)
And with Trey back, the little boy will have much to enjoy in his first season as an M bball fan.
you did name him "Trey", right?
I have a good feeling about the luck your child is bringing to michigan nation
You wouldn't happen to be familiar with the Blockham Family now would you?
That looks more like the fear of Ohio, MSU and the rest of the B1G! NO MORE SAD PANDA!!!!
Just heard Doug Karsh report it on 97.1 and read some quotes from Trey Burke himself that he will be returning. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Those who stay.....
...already were champions last year?
Trey statement ... "I have so much more to develop as both a student and athlete ... no better place to do that than here at Michigan."
He didn't fall victim to one of the world's less-well known blunders, going to the NBA too soon!
I thought the lesser know blunder was going against a Sicilian when death was on the line.
This was correctly predicted by THE PARTY ROOM.
I shall never doubt THE PARTY ROOM again.
Actually, I lied. I still probably will.
YES!!! This is so awesome!!
Thanks for staying, Trey!
Hi, I'm uh here for the posbang
Everybody, were going streaking!
Hellz Yeah!!! This is better than any Hello post!!
more or less reliable than Mike Valenti and crew?
Thank you Jesus.
I just hope that the Regents will address on-campus garbage collection issues at their next meeting.
The orange one is supposed to go to Illinois (their frosh are not that bright).
Moon walking now.
for 2012-2013 season...
Great 8 or better
possibly even the Elite 8!!! Burke you have made the right decision, May you be rewarded greatly for it!!
I wish I knew how to embed Muppets right now
Here we come!
mmaybe a little ahead of yourself, but i certainly like our chances!
Kobayashi has something to say about that...
This may be even more awesome.
Edit: reminds me of this-
This is what I would have posted.
Day full of awesomness!
HERE WE COME!!!!!!!! National championship in football and basketball this year!!!! Who's with me?? We're going streaking, everybody get their maize and blue hats!!!!!!
Oh yeaa!!! Sweet Jesus! National Championship here we come!!!
its awesome. but sounds like he's only coming back because he wasn't a 1st rounder. he should had never wanted to leave. if you're good the NBA will come calling you. but I'm not mad he's coming back. go blue!
I'm sure if you found a better job you would leave your current one right? Who cares about the reason, let's prepare to hopefully watch an amazing, injury free, dream of a season. Don't be a buzz kill!!!
lol Yea true.
i would hope you aren't mad he's coming back...
I literally just ran around my house screaming in excitement. I AM SO HAPPY
this is awesome!!!
Good to hear. Hopefully he does well his sophomore year
I LOVE LAMPP!!!!!
....is supremely awesome news! Thanks for hanging around, Trey!
I'll have the celebratory beer once I am off company property. That's the downside to great news like this breaking in the middle of the day.
and Treys (threes)
good start to the week. This is as good as getting a 5* recruit!
Sorry you're not a 1st rounder yet Trey, but so glad you'll be backkkkkK!
Did anyone do the white kid dancing? I think that's all we're missing. Man, I'm excited.
Does this make us favorites to win B1G in football AND basketball? I think so...
I would have to give the favorite to win the B1G in basketball to Indiana. They return all their important players, unless Cody Zeller has a sudden change of heart, and they have top 3 recruiting class coming in. I'm personally extremely impressed with how Tom Crean has managed to bring the Hoosiers back to national prominence in such a short timeframe.
Best decision that Trey may make in his lifetime. Much respect to him for thinking this one through.
Yessssss! Just got the MGoBlue text with this info and came here to celebrate!
THAT I AM TYPING IN ALL CAPS!!!!
love me some Trey!
"ROCK AND ROLL!"
Posbang me too guys!
This is a plus, for Trey, UM basketball and Spike. Win, win, win, win, win.
This is almost definitely because I Direct Messaged him on Twitter last week!
But I do see over 600 posts on whether a Michigan player is going to leave or not. I really can't see 1/10th that on whether a Spartan is going pro around here. Obsess much?
From the little I've read they're trying to justify that we will still be taking a step back by saying things like Burke is bound to regress, McGary is overrated, we won't have any leadership without Novak and Douglass, our incoming freshmen won't fit Beilein's system, etc.
So it seems like they're making a bunch of assumptions to convince themselves that Michigan won't be a major contender in the B1G next year.
Meltdown? Maybe not. Overly obsessive? Very much so.
I am so happy that everyone should posbang me at once....
You know your addicted to mgoblog when hearing news about trey either totally ruins or makes your day.
Oh, that's a huge relief.
Hoke's, Bielien's, and Mattison's on the house!
Saves me having to surf at work. Oh yeah, "bully" on that whole Trey Burke thing.
Hell's yes!!! Un-pack those garbage bags Trey
Thank you Mark Hollis!!!
Awesome News!! Great way to start the week. Glad for Trey and his family, teamates, coaches and all of us fans. GO BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ohhh Happy day, Happy day!!!
Thank you Mark Hollis!!!
Tremendous news. I was in an admittedly gloomy mood waiting to hear Trey's decision. Welcome back!
Our PG situation suddenly looks very nice. We have Albrecht in the fold for instant depth and no pressure to run the show next year, then Walton arrives in '13. So this probably means no major PG recruiting for the '14 class?
YES!!!!! I LOVE ALL OF YOU! Honestly, he made a great decision for his future and I am glad he really thought things through. Going through the whole "thinking he was going pro" thing will make me and other Michigan fans appreciate him coming back that much more.
I am so happy.
How good can we be next year now that he's coming back?
Can't wait to find out.
Probably the right choice for him. Def. the right choice for your team. Congrats. Basketball season will be fun.
Growing up watching during the Fab Five years(when I started really getting into the basketball team) IU was my second least favorite team behind duke. Damon Bailey, Calbert Cheaney and Allan Henderson made them easy to hate and living in indiana didn't hurt the cause either. Would love to be able to have that hatred re-newed with better on-court results of course.
more Schadenfrude on the way
Trey-mendous. Someone punch me for that.
Preseason top 10 bitches. Preseason top 10.
So this one time, there was this guy named Trey Burke, and he was loved for his immense skill on the basketball court.
When rumors spilled of him leaving for the NBA, those who loved him were then found with a wide range of emotions. Some were angry, others questioned their religious beliefs, and most of them just cried. Only few held hope for the future.
However, just when all hope seemed to be lost, Trey had a sudden change of heart. And.. ah screw it.
HECK YES TREY'S COMING BACK!!!!
This might help our team next year.
That is all.
This may be one of the happiest days of my life... don't tell my wife.
Praise Jesus! It's an Easter miracle.
Michigan is gonna be stacked next year. Wowzers.
Wonderful decision by Trey!!! Grow this year and then see what happens next!
Just when Spike Albrecht thought he'd be thrown into the lion's den...
that one guy won't be posting for a year
Looks like lunchboxthegoat will be gone until 4/9/13.
I'll take a voluntary posting ban for a year if he comes back and is eligible for next year.
Have to credit the guy.
Definitely giving him credit for sticking to it, but there wasn't a need to "bet" that in the first place. Truth be told I think it's all kind of dumb.
Owning up to dumb decisions. We'll see if it lasts.
Our starting line-up next season is crazy good! Add a little help from the bench and I'm seeing Big Ten Champions! What do you guys think? Go Blue
Can I get my points back now?
Now that Trey Burke is back, would it be a stretch to say he could be named as a preseason first team All-American?
Thank you 8 pounds 6 ounces baby Jesus, new born, not even spoken a word yet.
sure, putting this together with the Neil Diamond song is a little sappy, and more than a little creepy...
but if I told you I didn't lose any sleep over this, I'd be lying
I'm losing sleep right now over it, h8r!
Can we do another [Hello] Again post for Burke? Thats how good this feels.
[beaten to the punch, go forth with the redundant tab]
So.....I was just wondering if there are any POSBANGS left? BECAUSE TODAY IS A GREAT DAY FOR MICHIGAN BASKETBALL..GO BLUE!!
My tickets for the December UM vs. WVa game arrived within hours of this announcement. Fortunately, it is not bittersweet. Just sweet.
Where we're these tickets for sale at??
I can't make my own threads, so I posted this link on another basketball-related thread a few days after they went on sale, but it was pretty far down and I'm sure nobody saw it. Anyways, here it is again:
