Actually it does clown. If the statement "Tremendous didn't know they were visiting" was incorrect, it means the previous statement "It's unlikely to be Mone or Westphal" would have been correct.
Actually, yes, I barely studied for the LSAT, so you're correct about that part.
However, allow me to explain the logic to you: If only one statement is wrong, the rest are correct. Therefore, if a statement other than "it most likely isn't Westphal or Mone" is the incorrect statement, then that means "it most likely isn't Westphal or Mone" is correct.
I'm not sure how I could explain that in even simpler terms, but if you still don't understand the logic, I'll be glad to try.
Damn, talk about a terrible way to make your first post on 247. The dude was just so, so very wrong.
Yeah.. probably won't be seeing too much of him.
So your saying theres a chance?
You are absolutely correct in that if you take Aquaman's post to say that ONLY ONE statement is incorrect...than the other statements have to be true. I can't disagree with that at all.
I did not read it that way....still don't know if he is pointing out there is an incorrect statement (among many) or only one incorrect statement period.
In the absence of any qualifying words, it is a safe (albeit not formally logical) assumption that Steve meant only 1 of the statements is incorrect. I think it's just common sense that Steve wouldn't make a post like that if his real meaning was "Well, there's one wrong statement...of course, there are also two/three/four wrong statements as well, but there's at least one!"
The statement that was false is that Steve didn't know the two were visiting. He tweeted about adding 2 more recruits to the list the night before it was confirmed by Webb. The tweet was November 8th at 11:01 PM but then he re-tweeted the same statement the next morning so this may be causing some confusion. That statement is definitely false. Although others could be false I'm not going to claim any to be true or false.
Steve Lorenz @TremendousUM
2014 DT Bryan Mone (Salt Lake City, UT/Highland) is still in Ann Arbor for the night and will talk again with the coaches tomorrow.
Apparently he has no intentions of committing this weekend.
Hes talking to the coaches tomorrow to commit bro
Have you heard something different from what TVH stated because I'm not sure your statement is accurate.
If we get NO commits this week, I say the word TREMENDOUS and Steve Lorenz be banned from any future rationale conversations about recruits and where they stand
Not banned...simply ignored.
I think that's a little harsh, after all he did say "watch", He didn't go all whatshisname on 247 claiming he knew for sure player x would commit. To be fair, TVH heard similar whispers and has since backed off. Kid has made great inroads with a lot of prospects and even has press passes so he's not like ace will pulling fast ones. I do think tremendous may hold off on stating anything commit worthy until its been confirmed through solid multiple sources. He will learn like Tom has.

Tremendous wrote this on FRIDAY on his Facebook page:
``I've (not surprisingly) had a lot of questions on the commitment watch tweet I sent out yesterday. Two things:
There are no guarantees. Think of it as a Tornado Watch or something along those lines IE the conditions are favorable for a commitment.
The last four times I've mentioned the words recruit watch resulted in Henry Poggi, Channing Stribling (a commitment we broke), Michael Ferns and Denzel Ward. It's not something we take lightly. I hate being wrong, but I hate letting the readers down even more.
The recruit I am referring to is someone I talked to personally last night. They indicated that Michigan is definitely their favorite school and that they're considering committing tomorrow. I was also given good information on this beforehand, which is what sparked me to contact the player in the first place. So that's that. You're aware that stuff like that stays anonymous in respect to the player unless otherwise noted, which was the case with Stribling who said we could pre-announce his commitment.``
Ricos got my back!
Or like all the reasons that Drake Harris was picking Michigan?
And people tell me I am too 'worked up' about recruiting ...? Who cares. If it was a 2013 commit I would be filled with more anxiety. But for a 2014 recruit that has 15 months till NSD? Nope.

fair enough, we will just keep his credibility there with Dave Dawson and KoobJoe when it comes to 'commit watches'
Woah now, comparing anyone to David Dawson's credibility is a low blow.
