Let's See How a Michigan Man Took Raekwon McMillan's Commitment to Ohio State

The Michigan Man Difference

About a month ago, Michigan also found themselves up against Alabama for the services of a five-star recruit. It ended like most big-stage situations Michigan has found themselves in under Brady Hoke: disappointment. 

Da'Shawn Hand, rated by many as the best defensive end in the country, spurned the Wolverines and took his talents to Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Michigan fans took to Twitter, and while some handled it with class and grace, many more did not.

Fast forward to today, and it's Ohio State winning a battle against Alabama for a gem out of SEC country. Enter Michigan fan T_Wiita27; if only he had heeded his advice almost a week ago:

#GoBlue, indeed.

Forgive me I digress, but FWIW: I just learned that ^^^ is called a lipogram: a written work composed to avoid the use of specific alphabetic characters. (Or lipogra_, on this site!) according to the Word of the Day I got emailed to me the other day.
Who knew there was a word for it?

Nope, I can see it just fine. However, the tweet in question is now gone.

He must have forgotten the irrelevant bowl that M*chigan is playing in.

Mmm chicken wings... the only good thing about that bowl game. Who wants to bet Hoke comes out with a little sauce and blue cheese on his cheek?

GO BUCKS!

Just "a little?" C'mon man...

My bad... probably not enough wet wipes in the stadium to clean him up. :)

"It ended like most big-stage situations Michigan has found themselves in under Brady Hoke: disappointment." 
Pure gold right there.  The schadenfreude is strong in this forum, and I love it.

The answer may not be at the bottom of a bottle, but it never hurts to check.

Thanks. I did shed a few tears when Raekwon committed.

He's had a tough year, Twins, Bulls and Smurfs all are not exactly upper teams this year.  Hopefully they continue to suffer.

Unfortunately there are these types of idiots in every fanbase, including our own.  Can't understand people sometimes.  Stupid is, as stupid does. 

allbucksallthetime's picture

Unfortunately, truer words have never been spoken.  All fan bases have their fair share of fools and this fool does not represent the majority of scUM fans either.  Go Bucks!

bigbadbuck's picture

Not to belabor the point but its one thing to be stupid its another thing all together when you prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt for everyone to see. Thats what this guy did

That is terrible. He probably said the same to Hand.

Seriously?? This little upper-middle class white kid from the suburbs? What a complete fucking douchebag. What he actually needs is his dad to give him a boot up the ass for being a little poser.

This guy doesn't qualify as a man (m*ch*gan or otherwise) in any sense of the word. Anyone over the age of 12 that wears their hat backwards can't be taken seriously. He looks like a Johnny football wannabe.

It's sad to see that this is what we expect of out of most people from Michigan

If Mi#$igan isn't successful, he can always fall back on being a Gophers fan.

Because we couldn't go for three!!!

It's absolutely amazing to read some of this trash. We have some crazy fans, and maybe I don't go to the sites where our wackos go, but this kind of attitude is pretty sick. What have we ever done tgo Tennessee fans to merit this attitude. Maybe that ugly orange / yellow color gets to them after a while.

In the eyes of most SEC fans, OSU is an inferior program because of the B1G and OSU bowl record vs the SEC (even though OSU has nearly a .500 record all-time vs. the SEC).  Heck, I deal with a lot of UK fans on a daily basis and even those people run their mouths about OSU football.
You should go to ajc.com and look at reader comments on the McMillan story.  It's pretty sad to see how people in our society act towards some kid's decision on where to attend college.

703Buckeye's picture

Want to really tick off SEC fans? Include Mizzou and aTm into our all-time record against the SEC. I don't remember it right now but including those two sways the record way into the Buckeyes favor. Pisses those SECer's off so badly!

What has Ohio State done? Besides having a coach that never lost to them? This..

Vols fans are still butthurt over Meyer getting Vonn Bell. That and they've been irrelevant since 1998.

They're just bitter because Ohio State had won more games in the month of September alone than Tennessee has ALL YEAR.

lets put some of the tweets from buckeye fans to Jabrill Peppers when he chose Michigan. Lets not be hypocrits (however you spell it). Why even take the time and embed this tweet? not even worth my time..

AndyVance's picture

...and yet you took the time to tell us all that the Tweet wasn't worth your time... Which really was a waste of all our time.
And in fairness to 11W, I saw multiple site staffers today encouraging our fan base to keep it classy, on the site and via Twitter, regardless of Kwon's decision.

4thandinches's picture

I agree. We are just as fast to call out our own when we do this. 

I wasn't born a Buckeye but I became one as fast as I could. 

JakeBuckeye's picture

Its fun to think this is a special Michigan-exclusive breed of fan, but Ohio State has these fans too and it makes me sad :(

IBLEEDSCARLETANDGRAY's picture

Unfortunately it's the idiots who get everyone's attention first and ruin it for everyone else, Buckeye Nation included. Personally, I don't consider anyone a true fan if they threaten or wish physical harm on a 18-19-year old kid. That's not being a fan. That's criminal behavior. The bright side is that those morons are always easiest to spot (and hopefully get banned/downvoted into oblivion). Sadly, they come with the territory. Internet anonymity brings out the cowards.

Honestly everybody has these fans.  I used to go to Bulls games all the time.  I heard worse stuff thrown around when MJ missed a shot.  The Philadelphia Eagles have some Grade A pricks.  Alabama has those redneck pitbulls who would take a bullet for Saban.  LSU fans are perpetually drunk on bourbon, and that poison can create some mean sumbitches.  I bet Nebraska even has a few jerks sprinkled in with all those timid, fearful Corn fanatics.

Maybe somebody should get Kwon the dude's address. I sure would like to see that meeting!

BuckeyeAtHeart22's picture

It's fun to pretend that UM fans are the only assholes who say stuff like this for a few moments whenever one of them decides to post something asinine on the Twitter page of a recruit.
BTW, that's kinda weird...the whole Tweeting recuits of your school thing.  I don't Tweet cuz I'm not 16 or a girl, but still, this is another area where the NCAA has no idea what the hell to do.

Just as young children have begun to realize how lame it is to be a bully and that sportsmanship matters, so too will people finally learn that taking to twitter to wish horrible things on undeserving people (or people in general) doesnt make you cool, it makes you a douche.
