Wolverines' firestarter has unfinished work
By DJ Gallo
Michigan recruit Logan Tuley-Tillman is turning up the temperature on the Wolverines-Buckeyes rivalry.
Michigan Wolverines football recruit Logan Tuley-Tillman has created a literal firestorm due to setting his Ohio State recruiting letter on fire and posting a picture of it on Twitter.
But according to Tuley-Tillman's recruiting page, Michigan and Ohio State were just two of the 20 programs which offered him a scholarship.
He needs to let all those other programs know his feelings, too.
But the burning thing has been done. Tuley-Tillman needs to be more creative if he wants to get traction again on Twitter.
Here are some options: Alabama – Rip up their letter, place the pieces in a houndstooth fedora, and then set it aflame. Arizona State – Post a YouTube video in which he commits to Todd Graham, then immediately change his mind and go somewhere else without ever telling Graham. Arkansas – Crash a motorcycle into his recruiting letter. Boston College – Set their letter on fire while the theme song of Frank Spaziani’s1980s action TV show plays in the background. Florida State – From atop a horse, throw a flaming spear through his recruiting letter. Illinois – Tuley-Tillman is an Illinois native, so post a video of himself going door-to-door and slapping his neighbors in the face. Indiana – Don’t do anything, because it’s mean to pick on the less fortunate. Plus, it’s quite adorable that Indiana even tried to recruit someone who was offered by so many other elite programs.
Iowa – Set the letter on fire using ethanol-free gas. Missouri – Wrap the letter around a steak and throw it into the tiger cage at the zoo. Notre Dame – Write up 95 reasons he doesn’t want to go to Notre Dame and nail his list to the front door of the university. Oklahoma State – Set his recruiting letter on fire using flaming tap water from a fracking site. Ole Miss – Assume they understood that he won't be playing for them when he turned down Alabama and Arkansas. Purdue – Inform coach Danny Hope of his decision via telegraph. South Carolina – Burn his letter by leaving it out in the sun without any sunscreen. Tennessee – Have his mom call Derek Dooley’s mom to say that he can’t come out to play. Texas A&M – Set it on fire while wearing a Seattle Seahawks’ 12th Man T-shirt. USC – Do something a little less extreme than this. West Virginia – You know, just setting it on fire like he did with his Ohio State letter works fine for this one.
