Never Contact Prospects

Submitted by StephenRKass on May 31st, 2016 at 8:58 PM

Sometimes I hate social media, and its abuse by clueless morans. I just read an account of an absolute idiot. A Michigan fan who doesn't care for ANYTHING in Ohio didn't like the fact that DPJ is rooting for the Cavs to win over the Warriors. So he ended up getting in a twitter fight with a teenager. A prospect. This never ends well.

Whoops.

Moral of the story:  never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, contact a recruit. Don't tell a recruit what to do. I hate this so much, I'd like for the mods here to out Wayne Bateman, and ban him from mgoblog, or send him deep, deep into Bolivia. Personally, I don't use twitter, and can't imagine trying to find a recruit with other forms of social media. Just horrible, irritating, wrong. Don't be that guy.

Edit:  Here is a pic of Wayne Bateman before he took his twitter account down.

Edit 2:  I believe his real name is Chris Grant, and he is from Lima, Ohio, or thereabouts.

This guy took a verbal beating from every Michigan fan awake when he tweeted it.

I checked his account out to see if it was some loser posing as a fan like that A&M guy but his account checks out. He's just an idiot that somehow thought that would be a good idea.

And he was replying to DPJ's tweet on liking Lebron. Seriously.

Obviously, he took some kind of beatdown, because he removed his twitter account. SMH, rolling my eyes, this is ludicrous. Total facepalm moment. Hope DPJ realizes that idiot fans exist in every fanbase. All I'll say is that Michigan isn't immune from having total idiot fans out there.

This one time in London, I was walkin' through the streets of Soho in the rain, lookin' for his place. Got a big dish of beef chow mein there. . . . Sadly, I never got to meet his tailor. . . . Aaahoo!

A bunghole is a term used historically with a keg of liquid, often beer. From Wikipedia:

A bunghole or bungehole is a hole bored in a liquid-tight barrel to remove contents. The hole is capped with a large cork-like object called a bung. Acceptable usage include other access points that may be capped with alternate materials providing an air- or water-tight access to other vessels.

And more:

Bungholes were first used on wooden barrels, and were typically bored by the purchaser of the barrel using a brace and bit. Bungholes can be bored in either head (end) of a barrel or in one of the staves (side). With the bung removed, a tapered faucet can be attached to aid with dispensing. When barrels full of a commodity were shipped, the recipient would often bore new bungholes of the most suitable size and placement rather than remove the existing bung. Wooden barrels manufactured by specialty firms today usually are bored by the maker with suitable bungholes, since the hobbyists who purchase them for the making of beer, wine, and fermented foods often do not have a suitable brace and bit

The slang use of "bunghole" was particularly popularized by Beevis and Butthead.

newstation is San Francisco that accidentally printed a "report" of the captains of a plane that crashed that included a flight attendant named "Ho Lee Fuk". I have the picture, but I decided against posting it because I didn't want people to think I condone that sort of thing. Just google Ho Lee Fuck plane crash if you want to see it.

These people vote. I'm continually astounded at the pure stupidity of the average human.

Mr. Bateman, you're a bad person and you should feel bad. You don't, I'm sure. That makes me feel bad for humanity.

Dangers of social media. If a player allows some fans on social media to actually influence their choice of school, I'm guessing they're not cut out to play in front of 100k+ on Saturdays in the Big 10. Fans come in all types and you have to tune them out, even your own.

Bruce Wayne+Patrick Bateman for the alias.

I'll bet the Grant family is super proud of what's going on in their basement.

EDIT: ok, so I just noticed that "batman" was spelled out right next to it (albeit faintly, I say). I stand by my basement commentary.

I cannot stand when turds like this guy talk to teenage boys like they are friends from the same neighborhood or something. Talking crap to a kid is one of the dumbest things you can do in person or online, and the only person that looks bad is you. Grow up, buddy.

Because, embarrassed could be misspelled purposely as a snarky way to comment on guys like Chris Grant, aka "Wayne Bateman." The whole "moran" and "Staee" thing.

I am old enough that sometimes snark and sarcasm go right past me. I hope you meant to do this. Because, if you didn't, this is the height of irony.
