pretty damn clear that Auburn is a "players' team" that pays, as opposed to an actual "school" team that expects one to stay 4 years and go to classes.
Zeke Pike to Auburn
Lets go Hoke!
If Zeke feels more comfortable at Auburn then so be it. I'm confident in the recruiting abilities of Hoke and Co. so far.
I'm right there with you. One recruit isn't going to make or break this recruiting class. I'm confident that Hoke and Co. are working their tails off to get us the best recruits possible. BTW, I spoke to DG on Monday in class about Pike and he said he hoped Pike would commit here.
from bowl games
Hope you like being banned from bowl games
I wonder what happened on his Auburn visit that made him decide so quickly?
Probably a fist full of 1000 dollar bills...
maybe he got one of those "special" dorm tours from an Auburn cheerleader
does this mean no mega class 2012? :(
still have very high hopes for a great class though
on to the next one
I'd love Maty Mauk, if he goes to Notre Dame I'm gonna be even more pissed than Pike going to Auburn since we'll have to play against him. Not to mention he threw 69 touchdowns last year.
then we can just steal Gunner Kiel i wonder what he would think of Notre Dame accepting a top QB before him
I haven't heard anything regrading Kiel's interest in Michigan other than he has an offer. I hope I just missed something because he would be a nice pickup.
People need to stop emphasizing Mauk's stats. We all know they're ridiculously inflated, it's a product of the system they run.
Mauk would be fine although my concern with him is that we're essentially getting Tate Forcier 2.0. And look how that worked out. Not going to say I don't want him, he's a good player, but I'd be happier with Gunner Kiel or Shane Morris in 2013 as opposed to Mauk.
I want Gunner Kiel just so I can keep making references to Gunner Stahl..
"Lets go shake their haaaands"
--"You lost it for me Gunner"
--"You lost it for yourself"
I mean this in the nicest way possible....FUCK Auburn! :) all better now.
Good luck to him then
Is it official? I can't find it anywhere besides an auburn guy saying so...
Twitter dude. It's all over it. And the Auburn guy saying it is their Rivals writer who was at the announcement. Pretty sure he isn't lying...
From TomVH's twitter: QB Zeke Pike to Auburn. I believe that Michigan was probably his leader before this last trip to Auburn, which obviously changed things.
He seemed like an enthusiastic kid. But I'm not that worried. QB is hardly a position of need. Even if we don't get someone else, it just means an extra scholarship for some other great player who wants to come here that we didn't think we'd have room for. Good luck to him at Auburn. And NEXT!
never mind tom just tweeted it....sucks
I knew it was coming but i didn't want to believe it.
I still have this vague and unexplainable sense that tomorrow will still happen.!.
Looks like we're gonna be putting our eggs in the Shane Morris basket. Bet he's actually pretty happy with this. Would have been awsome to get Pike, but if there's one position that we can miss on an elite prospect this year, it's QB. Not so much next year. After we start winning, it will be easier to convince them to come.
Where is that guy who told me to eat ass
I didn't but in his absentia how about "Eat Ass"? There, now you are done looking.
I really think its a year to soon to really land a elite. get a good 4* and then go hard next year.
Its never to soon to land elite prospects.
Cam left some spare change at the dorm room he will be staying at. Good luck Zeke. Hope your career with the tigers works out. Yeah, right. !
I don't think Cam ever complained about anything.
Ehh Fuck Auburn and anyone who plays for them, hell anyone who plays for any other team other than Michigan. If youre not with us, you're against us.
Not getting him isn't that big of a deal, however, if he persuades this mega class he spoke of, then it sucks.
is going to get a Super-MEGA-Class and challenge the Klingons for interstellar domination.
Who ever negged you is a moron, that was a great quote from a great movie. Most certainly brightened my day after this dong punch.
I'm hearing 12 million over 4 years from my sources around Auburn.
DR is a junior ... DG will have a few more years. We will still will add a solid QB this year. Then we close the S. Morris deal next year. He will take the helm in a few years. NO worries.
the presence of Denard and Devin might be exactly the problem and that might affect the recruiting of other "elite" quarterbacks. If you have the ego that most of these kids have, telling them they're going to sit for a year is a big deal. At Michigan there's a pretty good chance right now, that any quarterback who commits now can look at three years of sitting unless Devin goes to the NFL after the 2013 season.
I don't buy in to the depth issue in this case. Everywhere you go, a QB is going to have to compete for a spot. And it isn't like Auburn doesn't have Qbs either. They apparently sucked in spring practice but they're bringing in Kiehl Frazier (a consensus top 100 guy who we also offered). He's closer in classes to Pike then DG is. Just saying that the PT argument doesn't really hold up IMO. If you're a QB and you want to go to a top school, you'll have to compete for playing time, no matter what the situation is.
an 18 year old kid going to a school that consistently brings in top qbs, who knows he might switch down the road.
Umm I guess he forgot to look at tom Brady then
