Doesn't sound to me like ANYONE named Davis is moving to Detroit.

Working out TSU’s succession plan first could explain why Mike Davis to Detroit is taking so long.

This has reached an epic level of sadness. The school should hire any bum who will take a 1 year contract for $200,000. They should fire Vowels today, issue a public statement of apology to alumni and fans. They should make all home games next season (except OU) free admission. Sign a handful of JUCO players. Play the minimum number of games the NCAA requires, all of them within driving distance. Try to hire a good coach next April and rebuild.

Just awful.

Nowhere in his quote does it say he will play for his dad AT TEXAS SOUTHERN.

My thought as well. Isn't the period of signing a letter of intent closed? This would mean all that he has is a verbal anywhere until he enrolls. Lets wait until things play out.

I suppose you are right. The tweet that Rogo shared explicitly said he committed to TSU. I could see Verbal Commits making an assumption from the quote. But, it would be a crappy thing for the Davis family to have Antoine say such a thing before relaying Mike's decision to the TSU community. I guess who knows at this point.

Now Antoine is retweeting tweets that he will be playing at TSU. Odds that the Davis family would have Antoine commit to TSU and then have Mike sign with Detroit only to have Antoine follow him? I'd say 0%.

Looks like another one that got away. And another example of Coaching Changes being wrong.

On his Twitter account, Antoine Davis retweeted the TSU commitment a number of times and accepted congratulations and welcome into the TSU program. There's no misunderstanding, he's going to TSU

The stealth cost-savings strategy is working like a charm! Think of all the money we are saving by not having to pay for new coaches all these many months! We can bring someone on board in July and they’ll have at least a couple weeks to recruit to fill seven or eight roster slots for next season’s squad.

What a kid says on twitter doesn’t guarantee anything. What do yo expect him to do, not thank people? Yes it doesn’t look fantastic, but what has looked right in the process at all?

He's retweeting stuff about him going to Texas Southern... that's definitely a nail in the coffin.

He has retweeted several times about being happy to play at TSU. That's a lot different than thanking people. If the Davis clan had any remaining consideration about moving to Detroit, I highly doubt the elder Davis would be comfortable with his son making those retweets. It would be an awful way to treat a school that employed you for years.

Not to mention, the official TSU twitter handle is indicating Antoine will play there. If there were any real chance the David family would leave, I think the athletic department down there would be hesitant to promote the signing.

If you think about it, it doesn’t make much sense why antoine would leave Houston. If he wanted to play for his dad at Texas Southern, why didn’t he do that first?
