To quote one of your brethren-from this very thread
"The kid is all about the attention, and our coaches aren't going to have that crap from a supposedly "committed" player."
too much for the Hke fanboys to handle I guess
I tried to be Lou Fillipo in this skirmish but you guys just hate each other too much to allow yourself to be veered off the road
Art Schlichter's cellmates and Mo Clarett's rugby team believe Ohio State always does things honestly.....
Don't kid yourself.
+1... Glad you acknowledge the homerizems in both fan bases lol
Show me one quote where he claimed to be a beacon of morality or that he was better than anyone else. Show me one.
Just b/c you dress neatly, speak without swearing, don't yell and scream and berate your players on the sideline, and have a genuinely pleasent demeanor doesn't mean your holding yourself out to be a beacon of morality or better than anyone else. If the media takes all that and gives him stupid nicknames like "the Senator" and talks about how squeaky clean he is, that's not his doing. He didn't hire a PR firm to create that image. That's your perception of him based on what you saw on t.v. and colored by the fact that he used to spank that ass every year in November. Be real, son. You hate him b/c he used to go ass to mouth on your team. Every. Single. Year.
I know this is irrelevant and all. That book is a great read on morality right there but I think it was by a different corch.
Plenty of good life lessons
I've read the book. Point me to the chapter where he states he never fails to live up to the principles in there.

its a pretty good book if you ever take the time to read it..
mostly about how to deal with adversity that life will always bring..
getting carried out after the during 26-21... seems like he is dealing quite nicely..
I guess he missed where I also said Conley de-committed...

What's your point?
That's the truth. Ward was recruiting for UM then he started talking about Florida, but still maintained he was committed to UM. Then the transfer happened and it didn't sit well with the coaches. Its early in the cycle, and we're in on plenty of OL. No need to deal with it
Obviously, so yall dropped him right???
Ward yes. Conley no. If Poggi for some reason ends up at Bama hes a decommit.
So let me get this straight. Ward wanted to be committed to UM and yall said no thanks kid, kick rocks
How the hell did you come up with that solution? Michigan and Ward parted ways. You can't be that dumb, can you?
I saw that
also wanted to mention that when Gareon Conley was still fully committed to UofM and was on his way to visit Cincy, Mattison informed him that if he went through with the visit, he would be no longer considered a commit. Conley turned around. This is Example A of Mattison & Hke's policy.
Call it what you want, but basically threatening a kid with his future will have consequences. And in Gareon's eyes, he never saw michigan the same way.
Clark's the one that said the kid was dropped, I'll let you determine who is dumb
glad to see Hke is catching on
Bump this one time
Couldn't help yourself could ya
Aw hell no!!! I tried. Sorry for any offense.
The point is no one knows what happened. You chose to believe he decommitted, I personally chose not to care, some Michigan fans probably think Michigan dropped him. It's probably somewhere in between.
This thread is pointless because all you are trying to do is goad some sunshine blowers in here to say Michigan dropped him. Your opinion isn't going to change one way or another depending on what somebody says.
Ward clearly wasn't coming to Michigan regardless if the coaches wanted him or not.
Ward had pulled some stuff that was going to draw the ire of the coaches eventually. Heck he moved to Florida without even telling his HS coaches, let alone the Michigan coaches.
Regardless of who broke up with who, it doesn't matter. I bet both sides are happier with the current conclusion.
