Can't read 90% of the thread because it's VIP over there, but seems Poggi is visiting Bama....If they don't get Green tomorrow, and if Poggi decommits, they will be in full blown melt down over there....
michigan posters are trying to convince themselves that he is not there on an official proclaiming he is just visiting some old teammates with his dad, and all the bama people are calling his visit an official....lets see how hoke handles this with his no visit policy or will he keep that a rule for only lesser rated recruits
Good point...I said back when he took Dawson back that it would kill his no visit policy...No way he could enforce it when he caved in to Dawson. I'm thinking if a kid is taking a visit this late in the cycle, he's gone, especially when that visit is to Bama. Let's see....play for Saban or Hoke....hmmm...
Then again, Hoke may have known beforehand. We don't know what we don't know. And given that Elliott's on an OV at Mizzou, let's not create any bad karma.
In watching Poggi in the UA game, I thought he was over-rated. He's undersized for the DT position and just doesn't like he has the frame to get big enough to be effective. i kinda hope it stays, though it'll be funny to watch them melt down if he leaves.
Well I don't believe in Karma, sounds too much like a fake girlfriend I used to have......
To be honest...I have no idea what is going on. We all knew he would be down there this weekend, but it was not supposed to be anything about recruiting. Now, it sounds like the Bama people say otherwise.
At this point, just go with the flow. Would suck if we lost him and then lost Green tomorrow..that would be depressing.
I could careless if he stays or goes, his team played in a game early in the season that espn aired and he hardly stood out at all. although it would be fun to see the meltdown by michigan posters if he did flip to bama
You guys should really get a twitter account but here's some tweets from Poggis dad Biff lol.
Biff poggi @BiffPoggi 12 Jan
The game has changed. Recruiting is a continuous process. It must be a process #sec
Biff poggi @BiffPoggi 2d
Until the #Big 10 learns to recruit like the #SEC it will be an irrelevant conference. Good news for #Ohio State
Opps. Sounds like it's not just the Alabama people saying otherwise.
Interesting, coming from his dad
Poggi IS on an official visit to Bama. Hearing he is having a good time....hmmmmmm
Agreed very interesting.
I completely agree.
I don't understand why he's rated as highly either. I too saw him in the UA game and like you, came away uninmpressed for all the reasons you just mentioned.
If that Twitter account is really Poggi's dad, then Poggi's dad is an idiot. A high school coach criticizing a conference publically while his son is still committed to a school in that conference is really stupid.
I have a hard time believing it's him and if it is that he could be that dumb. All indications are that it is him.
scUM might be better off without him.
"Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye 'til I'm dead"
it appears to be him
that's a tale you don't need to te'o
Totally agree....If I'm a BIG coach I don't give any of his team a look....period...If this is what he really feels then what will he be telling his players during recruiting?
I hate dads that think their sons talent is their avenue to the spotlight.. LOSER....Mich may hope they don't get involved with this family.
Jesus. Well the writing is clearly on the wall to me. He gone. I like how he's basically saying it's tOSU and nobody else in the conference
Sounds to me like maybe they told Hoke they were going to OV at Bsma but Hoke didn't react well.
Yea I like how he said that too. But the bizarre thing is Bama folks are saying Poggi sticks with scum this is a roller coaster ride for sure stay tuned.
Some ppl say they don't believe it's him but all the evidence points to it being him and he or his son never came out and said it wasn't so I say it's him.
LMAO...sounds like a surfer from SoCal
I agree with Biff from Back to the Future.
Look at the SEC vs B1G when it comes to recruits' cookie cakes, for example. Nebraska's looks like a 10 year old drew it on there, and why are they skimping out on the icing? For shame Nebraska, for shame! lol You've got to have your cookie game on LOCK DOWN when you're messing with the big boys in SEC country, Nebraska!

I've heard that the road to a man's heart is through is stomach so it makes complete sense to me that the way to secure a recruit's commitment is through pastries.
So ol' Biff got an $ec handshake, or what?
