I think a Kelis commitment would warrant a "buckle up" tweet.  I started following this site (and recruiting) almost a year ago and at that time kids from Ohio with an OSU offer were basically off the table.  Taking a kid from there, who had already committed to OSU and flipping him in a week would be worth that kind of excitement.

Having said that, I think his tweet means we'll get Wilson and Thurston, then hopefully Kelis when he wants to secure his spot!

Can you guys feel that? The way the shit clings to the air? Shitstorms comin folks so you guys better haul in the jib before it gets covered with shit. Buckle up, bitches.

I'm still waiting for the Onion to write an article with the headline: "TomVH tweets two words about car safety; entire Michigan faints simultaneously."

/for the 100th time

Ok, really though...  for him to tweet that it'd have to be a multi-commitment weekend.  I'm guessing Wilson, Wormley, and Kalis all commit.

With a quick look you will notice that TomVH averages several tweets per hour a large percentage of the day, except when he is sleeping. But nothing for almost 2 hours since "Buckle Up."

I am concluding he could be working on a (or multiple) "Hello" posts?


June 24th, 2011 at 2:45 PM ^

Gotcha. I think very little of what Tom does is actually reflected in those Hello posts besides some of the interview material and obviously the nudge to say, "Hey, you should probably start on a Hello: post for X."

you would know better than I.  This blog is far and away the best source of information all things UM - I really apprecite everyone that contributes here.  And the mods keep it civil, entertaining and informative...

I could go on and on, but I am waiting on TomVH.  I hope you understand.

except usually when a new commit announces an 8 paragraph bio is up 30 seconds later. Usually they know in advance and prewrite these things. 2 hours later I have to imagine there's just a delay. Tom is usually as reserved as possible about stuff like this unless his wife and/or gf is on his account playing us all.

Should Be Working

my seat belt is starting to give me an abrasion on my shoulder and it is really hot in my car. gas is too expensive to keep the car running while i'm in here.  hope he tweets that it is ok to unbuckle soon :(

Kalis is not talking to Alabama.

The next time Kalis returns to Columbus will be as an oppnent.

I expect his commitment announcement before the weekend ends.

I can't wait for Tom to see this thread and then put his next tweet confirming it was just about buckling up in the car and laughing at how many posts were about it.
