This should offset the imminent Tre Burke to the NBA news nicely. Here are a few Gems from RCMB (I appologize ahead of time for not knowing how to block quote):

"I honestly didn't even want him. Seen him play many times. Very overrated. 3 star player at best.

Have fun going to an inferior program."

"So how much $ did Hoke and the boosters pay him? There was word our staff was cooling on him. There were questions whether he could start right away given our plethora of talent. There were questions about his grades and eligibility. There were whispers he didn't fit in with our national recruiting philosophy. But please, whatever you do, don't speculate."

"I hope the guy gets injured. I don't even care. He is a huge douche and troll"

Oh and speaking to the first point "If Trey Burke decides to stay in school another year, some people on this board might legit commit suicide today."

 

That was good for a few laughs

I have a hard time believing that's real because it's so delusional. Plethora of talent? I seem to recall a bunch of guys with the dropsies last year. And national recruiting philosophy? That has to be a Michigan troll, right?

And FYI, to do block quoting you "Switch to plain text editor" then type <blockquote> at the beginning and </blockquote> at the end to close it out

behavior going on at RCMB, as you might expect. People saying they hope he gets injured, etc. But the funniest commenters are the ones who say stuff like "funny he thinks UofM will compete for anything" or "hope he likes catching arm punts".  Because Andrew Maxwell is carrying them to a national championship, for sure.

Why some idiot would wish an injury on any 17 year old is just dumb. I love Webb but I don't want him to get injured because he picked Osu have some class. And the best comment was how they think are boosters are paying him.

Came on to check Burke's status and when I saw the Server Unavailable I let myself dream that he decided to stay and the board blew up. 

Well either way, this is very, very tremendous news! Welcome Drake.

This is a HUGE get (obviously) because we should now have a deep and talented offense. Solid and deep OL, Devin Gardner/Shane Morris, Funchess/Butt, Green/Smith, Chesson/Darboh/Harris... This team will be difficult to stop on offense. Not to mention, our defense is on the up and up too.

This team will be scary for years to come...
