Cam Burrows Surprise

Submitted by Knappster on March 6th, 2012 at 8:03 PM

Noticed a retweet on twitter where Cam is saying he has a surprise for McCray tomorrow.  OSU offer coming?  Cam switching?  Totally unrelated to football? 

It's early March - what else can we do but speculate.

He is probably gonna mess with him or pull some sort of prank on McCray  because he chose Michigan and they're rivals now. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Kinda rough RDT!!  But true!  I had one of my best friends from my childhood go to Ohio, great student, but decided to attend for the ease of the degree.  His parents were also friends with my parents, he did graduate, in engineering, FWIW, but more importantly I only know this through my parents....I have spoken to him since he decide to go to school "down south."

That depends on the program. Don't kid yourself, just because our football athletes don't care about education, doesn't make our University a poor educational institution. We're ranked 75th in the country, but several of our programs are in the top 10.


Edit: MSU is only 4 spots ahead of Alabama in the rankings.

I had a friend my first two years in college who was a girl from Ohio (this is at Michigan).  She was pre-med, and despite being a pretty diligent student, just wasn't cutting it in the classroom.  Her parents were sick of paying out of state tuition for her to get C's, so they told her she had to transfer to an Ohio school or pay her own way.  Since that wasn't feasible, she reluctantly transfered to Ohio State (she wasn't a big sports fan and was from Ohio, so this wasn't as tough for her as it would be for many of us).

Long story short, I stayed in touch with her until we graduated, and she said she cruised to a 4.0 every semester on her way to a biochem degree.

Seriously.  When I was 17, had I tweeted that to a friend, it was probably telling him I had beaten his high score in Drug Wars or got free Griffins tickets from my dad.  Then again, I hadn't recently accepted a football scholarship, so who knows.

On the spot? Really? It's not like it's next February and he committed out of desperation.  He liked Michigan enough to give a commitment very early in the process despite other national offers and the chance for more.  This isn't Pittman holding a spot at a school he has no intentions of staying at.  I'm not saying he would never eventually flip, but give Brady Hoke some credit. Urban Meyer has flipped exactly zero kids from Michigan thus far.

Saw this on the twitter feed.  If you can suffer through the initial part of this, you'll be rewarded with a truly outstanding, and apparently irony-free celebration of trashiness. In what world would couch burnings, fights, and shootings be positive reflections of a fanbase?

Haha... The bar I managed was in about 4-5 of those clips.  It has the fake Starry Night mural in the background.  Needless to say, I didn't when OSU and Michigan played.  To be honest, this video is a little overstated.  The only ridiculous thing I saw in 4 years down there was an OSU fan cold cock a PSU fan for cheering when they won.  That, by itself, is terrible, but I saw nothing else stupid and these kids were wasted on a consistent basis.

If McCray is serious about Michigan, then good we'll have that question answered. If he wants to be a Buckeye in the end, then at least we'll probably know early.

(Given, I don't have any reason to question his commitment past the regular internet scuttlebutt)
