Signing Day Prediction Thread

Submitted by Nate the Newt on January 29th, 2017 at 9:50 PM

This was hapenning organically in the Aubrey Solomon thread so I thought I'd make it its own.  Make your predictions on the guys we're pursuing and why.


Solomon - goes blue - trust Sam?

Gay - nope -  black holes and all that

Becton - nope - seems to be trending to VaTech

Iffy - goes blue - Don Brown is a dude

Collins - goes blue - 247 Georgia guys don't seem sure after OV

Martin - goes blue - Harbaugh type of guy, they went swimming

So you make a "statement of fact" about where two kids will go to school with no source of information to justify then follow it up with an incorrect statement about where Sam's sources all come from. You don't sound credible (sarcasm).

Even if I was of the opinion that you may be correct, I would never agree with you. Sam's predictions, which are based on a plethora of research, are less of guarantees than a lot of board posters "statements of facts" who have absolutely no sources. I find that funny at times and then annoying at others.

Alternative facts bro. It's the way it is now. Just say shit like you know what you're talking about, even though what you say makes it obvious you have no idea what you're talking about, then ignore factual information to the contrary claiming THEY are the liars.

And boom. Everything you say is always right 100% cuz you're never wrong.

I, like many people here, have a bad feeling about Solomon despite the onslaught of blue ballzzz. As long as we pull on of the remaining WRs I would be happy. Gay would be the most prized recruit on the board imo. Dude is a beast, but I think he goes elsewhere.

And don't tune in Wednesday a.m. either, if you're stress avoidant - just open up this site around 3pm or so, see what happened.
Solomon may be one of those guys who goes past LOI day, a la McDowell. He & Mom may just not be able to agree that day, further negotiations to ensue.
Ok, negotiations didn't sound like I meant it to. I meant like "Can I go to that party Friday night?" type of negotiation, but -
Our main competition IS SEC, so...

Out of the top 4 left on the board for us - Solomon, Gay, Collins, and Oliver, my predictions are:

  • We get at least one for sure, most likely Oliver, and it would be some what of a letdown only getting one,
  • If we get two, that would be good and would like it to be one of the WRs and either of the the other two,
  • If we some how got three, that would be a coup, and
  • If we some how got all four, which would be just nuckin' futs, that must mean that the bag men must be low on funds.
  • Image result for oh well gif

Sorry guys, I'd rather have Gay than Solomon... by a hair. I know, I know, we have recruited better LB's than DT's this cycle, but Gay IS Peppers' replacement, even by two tenths seconds of a 40 yard dash. Decent shot at Tufele and Brown + Mattison greatness leaves me more comfortable for the next 2-3 years than having Metellus, Ross, or Anthony try to replace Jabrill. I want to see Michigan have consistent recruiting victories for elite athletes for as long as we're copywriting the term "VIPER". If we get Gay, we show prospects like B.J Foster and Palaie Gaoteote and/or the class after them that Michigan is THE linebacker school to go to, sort of like how Alabama is the running back school to go to. If we don't get Gay, and I think we probably won't, then I have full confidence that Brown will reconfigure the D to play a different method for the upcoming years. Solomon's great, and it would be painful if we didn't get him at all becuase we need depth at D tackle. But, if I HAD to choose...
