this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Hmm, I'd like to think we have a solid shot vs the Colorado TireFire..err..Buffs.
Colorado is one of the last teams I would expect Michigan to be in competition with for Wright. The CU program has a long way to go before they start winning.
Let's be fair people, Colorado did FINALLY win a road game with their seniors! That's definitely something recruits will love.
His former teammate, Tony Jones, goes there.
There has got to be another Tony Jones around the UM campus he can be friends with.
You've obviously never been there. Colorado should be doing better in recruiting than they do. Great school and lots going for it... better conference, mild winters (you can ski and golf in the same day on the front range), lots of pretty girls from CA and AZ, beautiful campus, etc.
The only problem is the town of Boulder is so. fucked. up.
We have pretty girls, great beer and cheap drugs. What more could you possibly ask for?
I graduated from CU and there is nothing wrong wIth boulder its continually rated one of he best places to live in the country, i don't know what's so "fucked up" about Boulder...outside of having a shitty football team. At least i got to rush the field when they beat WVU. But I would be shocked if he picked CU over Michigan.
Boulder is fantastic. I'll be sure to wear my Michigan gear around town this weekend and have my friends do the same so Yuri can see the Michigan love.
The Gary Barnett scandals really turned CU Football into a festering pile of suck, which is fine by me because as far as I am concerned that was the most outrageous scandal in college football until the Jerry Sandusky thing. Still, that was a while ago now. One would think the recovery should have gotten underway by now.
and I go to Michigan, thank you very much. Ann Arbor is very similar to Boulder. The biggest differences are that Boulder doesn't get along with the school and CU is piss poor right now (took summer classes there).
Jimmy Smith got drafted in 1st round. They're telling him that NFL will still find him at Colorado. That could be an explaination.
The NFL will find you regardless of where you go, as long as you get a chance at the field. They found Bulaga at New Mexico, for god's sake. If Wright's the real deal, he could go to Miami (NTM), UNLV or Harvard, and he'll still go in the first round.
Good grief. Always expect the unexpected in recruiting.
leggeaux epic backfield!!
Wasn't he super high on Rutgers not too long ago?
Instate Rutgers seems less ridiculous than out of state Colorado for a 5-star prospect. Looks to be Michigan all the way.
I concur as to the first point, but remain cautious as to the second. Maybe he loves Boulder. People choose their schools for all sorts of reasons. Hey, some people love to ski. Some people love to ski. Some people juggle geese.
While I love to ski and would choose Colorado for this reason, I think it would just be depressing for a football player who loves to ski because I highly doubt that they're allowed to by the coach. It would be like a kid in a candy store with no money.
I don't know about the skiing, but I imagine it would be grim just because of the constant losing. But in a world where an elite RB like Shell chooses Pitt (which, granted, is home for him) over the likes of Alabama, I think it's safe that recruits move in mysterious ways.
True, never bet the house on where a recruit will end up. That said, I have a hard time seeing a Jersey kid pining for the slopes of Colorado. UM is his childhood fave, so I'm starting to feel better about this one. C'mon Yuri, our helmets have wings!
Lots of good boarders come out of Jersey. Danny Kass Olympic medalist is from Toms River. Just sayin', and Cosmos pizza is amazing.
Abo's is better. Cosmo's does have the superior spicy ranch though.
You are right. I know this is moot since he decommitted, but Gunner Khiel initially picked Indiana.
Zoltan definitely snowboarded during 1 or 2 holidays when he was at Michigan.. I know this for a fact... So the coaches might allow it.
That's probably because no one tells Zoltan what to do.
A punter with a knee injury...how useful
Olympic skier who had a stint with the Eagles? He played at CU and he was able to ski at the same time
I did forget about him obviously. I didn't know he made it to the NFL either. That's interesting. I remember them hyping him up big time during the olympics but I didn't know if he was actually good or just good enough for the purposes of Bob Costas. I would just think the coaches wouldn't want a kid to risk a season or career for another sport that can potentially be as much of an injury risk as football. Even my high school bball coach didn't want us going skiing during the season.
His name is Jeremy Bloom and he did have a short NFL career with the Eagles if I remember correctly.
Bloom's mainly notable because he was made ineligbile by the NCAA because he had endorsement income even though it was for skiing and not football.
Yuri damn wright we are in his top 2.
If he still plans on taking more officials, this can still be fluid. Still hoping for this final piece to a lockdown backfield in Ann Arbor. Go Blue, Yuri.
But Sam Webb tweeted that Brionte Dunn has said where he's visiting this weekend. It's behind a pay wall so I can't see if it's us or them. Anyone else able to tell?..
Kalis this weekend.
Bc today a certain guy named Tom posted at his new gig that as of today he wwasnt sure if he was coming here or to c-bus this weekend. Hoke is in-home w him Thursday so I'm assuming it is here w Kalis.
Edit: wasn't trying to say u were wrong, just was making sure it was the new update that was just released. Thanks,
Anyway if he's rescheluded then my bad...don't keep up with kids twitter accounts.
Edit [Don't know where you are getting your info from,but Dunn will be tripping to AA this weekend.]
Is from sam Webb and Steve wiltfong. 2 guys who work for recruiting services. Scout and 247. Original is from bill Greene the Ohio 247 recruit guy.
Tom Beaverland and they are reporting that Dunn will be visiting?
This is over fellas. No way big Kyle Kalis allows Dunn to wriggle off the hook.
Another tweet just said he's going down to Ohio this weekend.
Dunn said, quote: "I'm going to reschedule my visit to Michigan, probably for the following weekend, but I don't know about that."
At first I read that as not knowing about rescheduling his visit (at all) and got a little disappointed - yet I believe he's saying he IS going to reschedule his official to Michigan, and it might be next weekend...although that's tentative.
Bad news for us and Dunn if true, even with his multiple visits
someome else just said Dunn will be in Columbass this weekend and now we are being told he will be in Ann Arbor.
The MGoCreepers are really letting me down right now. We need someone to go deep into the heart of Brionte's social media webs. I'm talkin facebook, twitter, texts, locker notes... Where is he going?!!
(don't do this)
