Derrick Green [Open] Thread

Submitted by eth2 on January 26th, 2013 at 11:48 AM

Today is the day. In about 4 hours from now at 4PM EST, Hermitage RB Derrick Green will announce his decision. Finalists include Michigan, Tennessee, and Auburn.

Story from newspaper that will cover the announcement live:

Mod edit: Changed the name of the thread to discourage the otherwise inevitable onslaught of board posts. Unless Green or someone close to the situation confirms his choice before the announcement, there doesn't need to be another thread posted. If someone wants to start an announcement open thread sometime close to 4:00, go for it. JGB.

It says, "Dymonte Thomas pre-announces Green to U-M."

So even if some information got leaked, it apparently wasn't directly from Green himself. Maybe Dymonte got ahead of himself...

There's no indication whatsoever on Scout of any mutual interest between Arkansas and Green, but that info might be pretty old. If nothing else, the big meathead could stress how his system is built around a feature back running behind a huge OL.

If anyone's curious how Auburn and Tennessee fans are feeling about this announcement, Auburn fans seem kind of confident, but quite a few of them seem to be conceding.. to UT?…

Meanwhile, at the UT Boards, they also seem a little less than fully confident, with more seeming to think he's leaning towards Michigan than Auburn (lots of these posts won't be visible unless you're a 24/7 VIP or whatever it's called)..…

Just trying to kill time 'til 4. Green, Go Blue.

And i hope the jerks on this site don't think it's funny and start posting fake announcements around 4pm.  Have some class today people we're all waiting in anticipation, don't make it more annoying then it needs to be by being jerks.

Just to avoid total meltdown over the next 82 minutes, we could start the 2014 announcements about 365 days early.

My prioritized wish list:
1. Joe Mixon - great vision, cuts, balance, speed and good size.
2. Elijah Hood - great power, balance, size with good speed and cuts.
3. LJ Scott - very good power, balance, vision and good speed

Any will go well with Green!

My apologies to anyone offended by the "Hello" thread. I saw the article on Scout, went to post it in this thread and read:

"Unless Green or someone close to the situation confirms his choice before the announcement, there doesn't need to be another thread posted."

I figured Scout would be reputable enough to fall into that category. Luckily, Scout has taken their pre-mature article down, and Green will get to make his announcement at 4:00 as planned. Hopefully he goes blue.

Yeah, I honestly wasn't trying to fuck anything up. Just saw the article, clicked on this thread to post it because I thought it was relevant, and when I read your mod edit in the original post I thought that was the situation I was in. I'm glad scout took it down, glad the "Hello" post was taken down, and am looking forward to his announcement.
