 Man it feels good knowing the good guys won this recruiting battle. It seems like I was this guy a few years ago...

This made my whole day.  I had my wife watch it and she enjoyed this guy's pain.  Thank your for posting.  For once we won one of these recruiting battles.

He actually seems to fake really caring. Not sure why I watched this video. Pathetic for a lot of reasons. Number one, why do people make videos of themselves and then post it? Seriously it's idiotic. Let me pretend to be upset for 5 seconds, then post the video on youtube about it. Like, you really don't have anything better to do with your life? Number two, especially not when the video looks completely fake. Videos like this make no sense to me.

Edit: How does this sound unpleasant or like pain? The dude literally acts sad for like five seconds.

I think schadenfreude has its place during the season, but honestly I think it's a little mean-spirited here. We've lost our share of recruiting battles and we've all been disappointed; I understand how the guy feels, though I wouldn't be caught dead flaking out on film (or flaking out off of film, for that matter). But honestly, this is just kinda sad, why rub it in?

That may be the worst acting job I have ever seen. This is so fake. Why you ask?

1) It's obvious he is trying hard not to laugh at certain points.

2) Why the hell would that guy post his own video of his making himself look like a moron over a 17 or 18 year old kid?

I say it's fake, which is why I down voted. I didn't down vote the guy who posted this thread, just the terrible acting job.

The only thing that could've made  Green's commitment better is if, Green had faked everyone out and instead leaving the table, while he's addressing everyone the screen starts to slowly rise to reveal the Michigan jersey.

my life seems incredibly interesting and meaningful, all of a sudden, because I'm not that guy taping himself watching the internet. Then I realize I am watching a guy who taped himself watching the internet, and my delusion of fulfillment comes crashing down...

Damn you, interwebs! Damn you!

Vol fans are a little upset.

http://www.volnation.com/forum/tennessee-vols-recruiting/131516-13-va-rb-derrick-green-michigan-503.html

Some of my favorite posts:

"Good luck in the Big Easy conference where you'll never be heard of again."

"Good luck at Michigan, Green. But you better hope you don't run into Tennessee in a bowl game, otherwise Von Bell or Carl Lawson will lay you out."

"Some kids dont want to play SEC defenses."

"Good Luck to Green at Michigan. Go beat Urban's ass!"

However, the best one goes to this guy...

"He's going to get lazy and put all thqt weight back on like he use to have and wont do crap. I read he was 268 lbs as a freshman in High School. If he don't have the heart to play in the SEC then we don't need him anyway. GO VOLS"

Have consisted of signing day and orange and white games, I don't think Green has much to worry about.

Edit: flipping through a couple of pages of that, you did a good job pointing out the ones to make fun of, and most of them are disappointed, but handling it in a fairly classy manner.

I clicked into this thread thinking I was going to read a story about a Vols fan being smooshed under a 1TON weight or trucked by a 5* running back. Somewhat disappoint. Not that I'm into snuff films or anything like that.

TN is a hot mess of a esesee team.  at this point, young stars are not likely excited to be playing for butch jones.  they wiffed on kifin, and dooley, jones is no sure shot.  i realize they will get some talent but i think they are on the bottom trying to get back to past glory.  Is there another Tee Martin out there?

Is in a very unique postition because any half-witted coach should be able to recruit there. Their faciities are amazing, they are in the process of builiding new everything on campus, and they have typical SEC hotties roaming campus. The Phillip Fullmer/ Lane Kiffin/ Mike Hamilton thing was like three RichRod situations, each accompanied by the death of a family dog. The analogy between Butch Jones and Brady Hoke could be pretty strong (except that Butch doesn't have any history here). Recruits have been raving about him and his staff. If the school can somehow better mesh its so-far so-so quest to be a Top 25 university with athletics-- and if the Athletics department can dig itself out of debt-- they could go back to the top pretty quickly. I would expect that Butch Jones (note: every time I type his name it comes out "Bitch") will have a top 15 Class minimum next year.

Butch Jones has been successful everywhere he has been and I expect he will have some success at Tennessee.  They just need to give him the time because this year's class is very average so far.  It is very difficult when you have Bama, Georgia, LSU, Florida and South Carolina out recruuiting them every year.
