    Set the tone for upset weekend baby!

    let’s see,

    Mr. Lewis said last week that we should get some good news this weekend, RP already was scheduled to be on campus this wknd with Lewis, Warren, etc., Warren texted earlier in the week after the pc was scheduled that he looked forward to hanging out with RP and Lewis this weekend, RP came over and played pickup with the team earlier this week at the Dail, D. Telep said our chances were “beyond excellent”, and JHodge tweeted welcome to the fam this morning…

    i will be shocked if he doesn’t announce for the Pack…

    I will be shocked if we don’t get him.

  4. Packfan28 09/30/2011 at 1:32 PM #

    ^ Ditto. And if he can help pull in TJ Warren, that would be the start of something big.

    With all the hype, if we don’t get him there will be egg all over our face. But I do expect to get him.

    Let’s just hope he stays committed.

    Yeah, we’ve had a history of letting big time recuits slip away AFTER they committed. We were lucky to get CJ back.

    I thankfully lost all my expectations for anything as a State Fan a long time ago.

    However, I continue to have the pain in the belly.

    Some good news today could probably help that go away.

    Is anyone watching it via the live feed? I see mic’s.

  9. IrishPackFan 09/30/2011 at 2:05 PM #

    Where can we watch or listen to it?!

  10. packhammer 09/30/2011 at 2:05 PM #

    Purvis likes to wear the number 44. Hmmm. Are we going to have a problem with that?

  11. Sw0rdf1sh 09/30/2011 at 2:07 PM #

    Wolfpacker just tweeted Tyrek Coger will at the game Saturday as well.

    He decommited from Missouri.

  12. Gowolves 09/30/2011 at 2:07 PM #

    I see the mic’s too. Fashionably late

  16. Packfan28 09/30/2011 at 2:10 PM #

    Good sign for us. Chris Corchiani is there.

  18. packhammer 09/30/2011 at 2:14 PM #

    Sound isn’t working. Probably just said he’s going to play in China.

  19. WIFF 09/30/2011 at 2:16 PM #

    yeah baby!

  20. packhammer 09/30/2011 at 2:17 PM #

    No place like home. Crap he’s going to repeat 12th grade. Yes, no, it is us!

  21. StatePhan4life 09/30/2011 at 2:17 PM #

    And so it begins.

    Damn that makes me happy for the program!

  24. Texpack 09/30/2011 at 2:19 PM #

    Nice win for the staff. We’ll know in a couple of years if this was something to get excited about or not.

  25. mafpack 09/30/2011 at 2:20 PM #

    Hah, the sound cut out for me right as he was announcing it and then he didn’t put on a hat, so I couldn’t tell what he decided! Glad to hear it was us 🙂
