Derrick Green announcement thread

Submitted by buckeyeh8er on January 26th, 2013 at 3:56 PM

For those that are not among the 4900 current viewers watching the table with three hats, you can see the announcement at http://www.timesdispatch.com/sports/high-school/ .  The previous thread was getting a little on the long side - continue speculation, followed by sorrow or excitement here.

I admit that I lost faith because the Auburn hat seemed to match his suit, but WOOOOHOOOOO anyway! Welcome aboard, Derrick, and enjoy that #27 . . . .

Explain what happened to those of us who couldn't watch it.

Did you just grab the M hat, or sort of do the fake reach for the others?  Then he put on a UM jersey?  What number?

Faked a move for the M hat, then faked a move for Tennessee hat, then walked away from the table to flip a switch which lifted a projector screen which revealed an M jersey #27 (I think?) Green on the wall.

He then went back to put on the M hat, then he put on the jersey and posed for pictures

The kid got me when he took a walk. Thought hat #4 was somewhere off camera. The jersey behind the screen was awesome.

He's going to have to deal with unreasonably high expectations so let's get started. Beating Ohio State's ass and being a Heisman contending type of back is what we need. Period. He's got a great opportunity at a great school with great coaches and a tailor made offense (and suit). Go Blue Mr. Green.
