SHHH! You'll get us in trouble!
A tweet from Rivals... Yuri Wright... we are in top 2.
I like the direction Indiana......Yes, THAT Indiana, is going more than Colorado's program. They are a team who has next to no offense in an all-offense Pac 12. (92nd in Total Defense, last in P12.) Defense, behind Jimmy Smith, that defense has been awful forever. (103rd in Total Defense, Second to Last in P12)
Like our chances to say the least.
Againist the buffs...this is a good turn of events.
OMG JUST COMMIT ALREADY!! Like your really going tom commit toColorado over ][V][!!!
East Landfill, MI
....that a fair contingent of the state of New Jersey comes to Ann Arbor for an education as well as New York. It will be like he never left the Mid-Atlantic region.
Is Ann Arbor still sister cities with those places, or was that just a one-year thing each time?
But I studied abroad in Hikone, Japan about seven years ago at JCMU (Japanese Center for Michigan Universities). So my guess is that maybe they still are? Also, all the msu kids were super douches
I visited the JCMU facility in Hikone a couple of weeks ago. They are still sister cities.
Yep (well, at least as of the last time I heard). The year listed is when they started the sister city relationship. I went to Tubingen as an exchange student in high school, and we used to have an olympics type series of games with Peterborough, Ontario, although I think they stopped them years ago.
Maybe Yuri just had a hunkering for some "Rocky Mountain Oysters" all of a sudden....No way he picks Colorado over ][V][.
YES BALL HAWK PLEASE!
as much as what the "maybe Georgia after that" infers. This doesn't sound like it's "down" to 2 as much as it's down to 2 "so far". Maybe I'm missing something.
I had the very same thoughts as well. I think we've only just started to see the tip of the iceberg as far as Mr. Wright's recruitment goes. One thing is for sure, it's going to be a drama-filled ending to this class and I'm sure it will be great fun.
Keith Marshall just committed to Georgia today also. Marshall is a sweet running back.
Jowlgia always seem to get some of the best backs.
says Yuri has us and Rutgers as WARMER and Cal, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Notre Dame and Pitt as WARM only.
he will commit on signing day. So, no need to worry too much about it, right?
This is the only entertaining thing that can come out of Wright committing to Colorado:
Besides that, there's nothing.
It actually amazes me that CU isn't better at football, considering how many kids at least are interested in them. It wasn't that long ago that they were in the discussion for an MNC bid, and yet now that is a tirefire of a tirefire.
Feels like UM has the inside track.
Colorado is the worst case scenario for Penn State. Fairly dominant program (and they won the Big 12 multiple times under McCarthy and had the split national championship) totally collapses in wake of scandal, hires overmatched coach who succeeded previously because of his offensive coordinator, faculty turns against athletics in a big way. At least ten lost years.
Somewhat OT but I always wondered why Hawaii wasn't awesome at sports. You would think that selling living for 4 years in Hawaii for free would be one of the easiest sells in the world to a HS kid.
I used to live out there. Honolulu, while beautiful can be kind of a dirty city outside of the touristy areas. Also, it's an expensive place to live. Food, transportation, etc. digs into your wallet really fast. Also, you are a loooong way from home and it's not cheap for family/friends to come visit.
To top that all off, Aloha Stadium is kind of a hole. Very rickety stadium.
Did Yuri visit for the Ohio game?
I hate the whole no way this guy chooses fill in the blank school over us. Hell we all thought we were getting Leilon Willingham and he picked UCF over us.
Yeah, well...first of all, Willingham was kind of a flake. Committed and decommitted to A&M without ever visiting, CU AND UofM thought he was solid with them, then went for UCF. Also, while I gave him the benefit of the doubt at the time, but, yeah, sounds like UCF was pretty damn dirty- huge violations detected, in multiple sports.
If this is true then he better hurry the fuck up because classes begin in like three weeks. It's fucking simple: either you play in a pro set and get the ball 25 times a game or share carries with five other backs and average about eight touches a game. Of course, if you go to OSU then you can participate in one of Urban's sexcapades.
You are killing me! I just read your post and blew beer through my nose. Fuckin hilarious!
I think he is smart to take trips now...can't once he commits to us.
And I don't think he is early entry.
As a CU alum that grew up in A2, this is the best possible final 2 for me, if true. I know CU is seen as kind of a joke nationally at this point, but Greg Brown does do a good job with DBs, and Hawkins is no longer there, so hopefully the tirefire will start to dwindle. Still have a long way to go, but the new staff is doing fairly well given the results on the field in recent years, so I don't think it's completely out of the question that Yuri would go there, especially given that his friend is on the team. Plus, as stated above, the NFL will find you anywhere, and if you've ever been to Boulder, you know it's not a terrible place to be while they're looking for you.
If I were him, I'd go to Colorado. Better position coach, hotter women, better scenery, better conference, better college town, better beer, and better weed.
Oh and no midwestern winter, a proven young corner on the other side, a good friend on the team, and virtually guaranteed playing time from day one.
All Michigan really has going for it is a bigger stadium. Who cares about that?
Really dude? Is that all? Learn a little bit about tradition.
Hah. Tell that to the recruit who is looking at spending the next 4/5 years in either Ann Arbor or Boulder.
Are you a Colorado fan trolling these parts? Or just a big fan of Boulder? Michigan is Michigan, fergodsakes. That's all we need to get recruits to come here (like a top-5 2012 class, maybe?).
Me? I'm admittedly a CU fan, but I also don't mind Michigan. In fact, I was in the superdome when Chris Webber first travelled and then called timeout to cost his team of cheats and thugs a chance at the national championship. I was young then, but I know I was going for michigan. Since then, I've always had a soft spot for you guys. I mean, who doesn't love a dufus?
You're not going to be around long. Be sure to get as many idiotic statements as you can in before you are banished to Bolivia.
Was that before or after Gary Barnett was selling sex and alcohol to recruits? I'm sorry I forgot the last time that Colorado was even relevant when it came to athletics. Pick up your trash and leave please.
That agrees with your "better weed" argument.
Well...Michigan isn't a doormat program, so we have that going for us.
1. Lolololol Boulder a better college town than Ann Arbor?
2. You're clearly not familiar with Michigan's craft beer scene.
3. U of Michigan is a better university. Period.. It's not even close.
4. The Big10 is as good as the Pac10 and it doesn't matter what conference Colorado is in... THEY'RE TERRIBLE AT THE GAME OF FOOTBALL.
1. Ann Arbor is a dump. Sorry, but it is true. Have you been to Boulder?
2. Belle's is good but other than that, uh...
3. Michigan is good a school. I'll give it that. Both CU and UM consistantly rate near the top of public university lists. Yuri is smart to be considering these schools.
4. The big 10 sucks ass.
Colorado football sucks ass.
What bowl game are you going to this year? What bowl game did you go to last year? Lol last three years of Colorado football=Michigan 2008^3. What are you? Colorado's only fan trolling a Michigan forum?
I've been to Boulder. It's a college town comparable to Ann Arbor but with more natural landscapes surrounding it and maybe slighty cleaner looking(because the winter makes Ann Arbor look like shit). Difference is that I can drive to Chicago from Ann Arbor. You know what's within a 300 mile radius of Boulder? I'll tell you... Jack shit.
Um, Denver? I know it's not quite Chicago, but it is a city, and is just 25 miles away. Also within 300 miles of Boulder: Breckenridge, Vail, Aspen, Winter Park, Keystone, etc. Just sayin.
When I said jack shit I did not forget about Denver. The most interesting thing going on in Denver right now is Tim Tebow......
P.S. If I were a true Colorado person, I would insert something about at least Tebow being in the news helps to bury the Suh headlines (and then add something derogatory about Detroit)...but, sadly, I am still a Lions (and Detroit) fan, so I can't :(
I'm from out of state so I don't care about Detroit. My only visits to Detroit consisted of going to the airport. I did go to Chicago several times with friends. (rented a car and stayed for the weekend) and that's something you don't have in Boulder.
For the record, I'm not the one downvoting you. I don't even have enough points to do that.
So what is it Boulder doesn't have? An airport? A car rental place? A place to stay for the weekend? Or your friends?
