What will be the PR reason given, and what is the real reason?  Supposedly trying to reschedule for next Friday.  Trying to outflank Houston?  Or not waste a trip?

gatorbait.net says:

Rain "...pushed back the flight and Damian has a student council meeting in the morning. It will occur sometime during the week."

Damian quoted about the Meyer visit in a scout.com interview today:

“He was supposed to come Friday but that’s not going to work. I have a student council commitment to do. We’ll have to reschedule.”

Close your eyes, remember that it's just an 17-18 year old kid, pretend that you have a life, and you'll be asleep faster than you think.

He cancelled Sunday, for some unknown reason, and suggested Friday, to which Damian said he has a student council committment.  Now that's going to go over big with your possible future head coach  "Coach, I can't meat with you next Friday, I have to go to student council."

This is great.

Not to be a buzz kill, but Damian said he had a 'student council commitment to do.'  Uh, if he's not breaking that commitment, why should we think he'd break the BIG commitment he made?  And how do we know that he hasn't called Meyer and said, "Coach dont worry about it.. I am coming........ see you when i get there"

I haven't talked to anyone involved, so don't get overly depressed.  It's just that I haven't seen anything that really shows me that the scales have tipped in our favor with Damian.  We'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.  In the meantime, I'll have my fingers crossed.

we dont know you are right, but the closer we get to signing day ,  and he is still planning to make a visit, or sees the need to make a visit whichever you want to say..........i guess that just gives me hope, i would think his time would get more valuable daily .............

Between the student council and that terrible thunderstorm (more like steady light to medium rain) that kept Meyers plane away, this is starting to look pretty good.  I am trying not to get to excited, but a student council meeting?  How long do those last?  Not long enough that you couldn't fit in a meeting with Meyer.  And yeah, it rained here today, but it wasn't a flight cancelling kind of rain.  Still, just trying not to get to excited.

i agree...i've had a lot of experience with these types of "councils"...that is a sad excuse for turning down a visit..that did NOT happen..kids cancel those things all the time to 'study'...or 'celebrate'

I read on another board yesterday that Mack Brown was coming to visit Damian this week. That too was a rumor. If Mack comes to visit, that tells me the Florida committment is shaky, and uncertain.

 :o

I hate to sound like a pessimist, but a student council meeting! Come on, i believe it more to it than that. The meeting was schedule for Sunday not Monday. Maybe he cancelled because of rain, but that highly unlikely. I really believe Mustain, Ben, Norman, Coach Gus and the other recruits had an effect on Damian during the schedule visit Friday and Saturday. Another thing to keep in mind is how the commentator was giving Coach Nutt credit for his coaching in the east/west shrine game and how that big reciever almost won the game for the east team with 6 second left. I'm sure DW and the others was watching the game. I could be wrong, but i doubt it. Signing day is next wednesday. The longer Coach Meyer waits, the better the chances for the Hogs.

I guess I just read it differently.  I didn't read "student council meeting".  I read "commitment'.  Who knows what that means.  Maybe it's an out-of-town function.  Again, I try not to read too much into things.  What I find more encouraging than the whole thing about whether or not Meyers comes is that Damian is friends with Ramone Broadway and London Crawford who were on campus this past weekend.  In that same interview he was quoted as saying, “I didn’t go on an official visit, I just went to hang out with my friends Ramone Broadway and London Crawford who were on visits to U of A. It really wasn’t a visit for me whatsoever.”   Perhaps if the Hogs get commitments from those two, Damian might want to "hang out" with his friends for four years.  ;)

i really think that DW is trying to find a way out of this without upsetting anyone.He probably took the visit for MM sake ,and for Gus.The way i read into the article on Scout,i say he's Florida bound.


The Springdale star answered the burning question that everyone has been asking. Is there any chance that Damian de-commits from Florida and goes to Arkansas?

“I don’t know. There’s a chance of anything but I’m still committed to Florida.”

Williams insisted that he was a Gator and nothing at this point has made him consider not honoring that pledge.

I'm not sure where they got the "student council committment" thing.  Maybe they meant Beta Club Convention, which is this weekend.  With a 4.0, Williams is more than likely involved with the SHS Beta Club, and you guys can do like me and ask your smart cousin what a Beta Club convention is.

It just makes NO sense to me to invite a couple of your friends to come and check out the home state university that you won't be attending.
I have a feeling that after Crawford and the other kid have made it back home and had time to think about their visit, Damian will call and they will talk and come to some kind of group decision.
I have NO idea what that decision could possibly be, but apparently they came and checked out the UofA because of DW, so I'd hope that they ALL want to sign up!

Who said Damian invited them?  I understood that they were in Fayetteville on an official visit and Damian went up there to see them while they were in town.
