"Hey Tom, I'm gonna pancake you again." - Taylor Lewan
"Not if I run 5 yards away from the play you're not!" - Tom Gholston
I need to rewatch all the Offensive plays, and key in on Tom.
I actually hadn't heard that story before. Is that true? If so, that's hilarious, and a terrible mistake for a head coach to make.
It's urban recruiting legend. I seriously doubt it's true, but it's been floating around for awhile now. I've seen people say Gholston or his coach/mentor said it happened, but there was never confirmation.
I've heard similar things to Brian Cushing visiting Michigan planning to commit and the coaches didn't know who he was so he got pissed and went to USC. Friends of mine who were close with Lloyd's staff say they wanted nothing to do with Cushing though because of concerns about the juice. Who knows what is really true.
The Gholston story is almost certainly garbage. He didn't even "tell" it until last year or so. Something like that would've come out right away.
And the Cushing story was that he showed up for a visit when almost the entire coaching staff was on vacation, so it was basically a non-event.
It's absolutely true. Tom gave an interview last year before the Michigan game and recounted the story himself.
Pretty sure it's true. It's why Lewan called Gholston "Tom" during the game last year as trash talk. Either Gholston or one of his parents/coaches confirmed it as well.
Ha. It's unfortunate when the first person perspective is sometimes the least trustworthy source.
