THANK YOU for showing up

THANK the NCAA for bending him over a table

THANK Tressel for fucking this whole thing up

THANK Gordon Gee for not opening up his mouth and getting us in more trouble.

THANK T. Pryor for being a gigantic douchebag

 

How many times did that guy use "thanks" when I'm guessing he really didn't mean it?

You and I do this all the time.

"Boy Fred I really need to send the IRS a thank you for coming in and auditing the hell out of me.  That IRS agent needs a special thanks for fining me thousands of dollars."

TomVH: DB Allen Gant Visiting Thursday

I just spoke to Ohio DB Allen Gant (6'1", 182 lbs) and he told me the Michigan coaches invited him up to Ann Arbor this Thursday. He said he's hoping that they offer, but he's not sure if they will. 

If the coaches do offer Gant he said he's still going to take his time with the process and let everything play out. 

According to Columbus Dispatch, Tressel will not be fired/resign

They're pretty unspecific as to what the "sanction" could be. 

In other news, a local radio reporter

has stated that the radio station has verified that Tressel knew of the scheme months before OSU claimed.

[edit] one last note - that reporter above tweeted that the source for all of this info is cam newton's brother, but took the tweet down like 20 seconds later.

Perhaps a little spread offense would have helped the guy... but man, he doesn't even like running at the combine.

Joke of the Day: What's one drug that Mallett won't test positive for? Speed.

Mallett, who is 6-foot-6 and 247 pounds, was timed at 5.37 seconds. It was the second-worst time among the 18 players who participated in Arkansas' pro day. Only guard Zhamal Thomas, who is 6-3 and 346 pounds, turned in a slower time, at 5.41 seconds. (Source)

 

 

Yee Gawds.For Comparison - Suh's Combine time? 4.98. Brandon Graham? 4.58-4.71.

According to the article, NJ ATH Brandon Napolean may be visiting Michigan March 26th.

We have yet to offer according to 24/7 and Scout.

 

Tom, JC, DG, anyone else have any confirmation?

Disclaimer: This is my first topic post on the mgoboard. I hope I don't earn a trip to Bolivia.

It appears as though the first 2010 recruiting profile (Carvin Johnson) was posted on March 1st of last year. Perhaps Brian hasn't posted them yet because of the actual events happening with the hoops team, or because we don't have as many recruits in this class. I'm just itching to see the YMRMFSPA comparisons for our new players.

So Tiki filed his papers alerting the NFL he plans to unretire? Lets hope that one Barry Sanders reads that and decides its time for him to come back as well.

Im being serious, I really want Barry back.
