Agree on all accounts.
Spence and Reeves were Withers guys. Thanks for proving my point.
Congrats you benefited from a rape scandal, also that was all Urban.
Spence, Schutt, Williams and Reeves fell in your lap.
Congrats, you benefited from a Tattoo scandal.
Saying that osu recruiting is all Urban Meyer is also admitting that he single handedly out recruits UM's entire staff lol
OSU dolts can talk all the trash they want about Taco or Butt, but I have watched their films over and over again, and I'm good with those pick ups. If those are "scraps", give me MOAR plz.
Both of them have LEGIT size (meaning their pretty much accurately listed in their measurables- not one of those cases where a kid is listed as a 6'4 WR but is really 6'1) and both of them are ATHLETES.
I'll take a 6'5, 230 pound TE with athleticism and a 6'6, 240 pound DE with athleticism ALL DAY. ALL freaking DAY I'll take that.
If it was only a tattoo scandal, why was it such a big deal .... oh yeah, your coach lied about it and played ineligible players.
Guess what, if it was only a tattoo scandal and had been reported and the players suspended for 1 or 2 games tops, that would be a tattoo scandal.
Instead, your coach covered it up and lied about it to the NCAA. Tressel would still be at OSU if it was JUST a tattoo scandal.
Now it calls to question previous years and the Clarett issue .....
guess I need the staff to get my name fixed now.
Either way, Michigan benefited.
And it does not call into question previous years. You may WANT/ THINK/ HOPE it to call into question but it doesn't. The NCAA did their investigation already, you can't prove otherwise.
Are you good at watching a kid that is 6'6 get dominated by a kid that is 6'2'' and fat? I saw it with my own eyes!
so explain how michigan benefited from just a tattoo scandal then or are you just going to argue one line of my post?
Yeah PM Noah. Let me know if you end up having to go thru somebody else so I know who to refer people to in the future.
Read buddy! I said "Either way! Michigan benefited"
Since we are getting picky how about I just say Michigan benefited from an OSU scandal. Which you have yet to deny!
speaking of getting picky, how about you reread your previous responses to mine.
Two way street man. I only did it to you because you did it to me.
Big name at big school = big recruits. Your old staff had nothing to do with it, the ones who deserve credit are Jerry Sandusky and Terrelle Pryor.
I assume you are talking about Taco, since most of the trash talk from OSU fans is directed at him.
Answer: yep. I'm okay with that.
I have only see 10 mins of film on Taco and I'm okay with that. He has god given abilities that cannot be taught. Can always teach a kid proper technique, how to read keys better, train him up in the weight room and teach him defensive schemes.
Can't teach a kid to be 6'6, 240 pounds and run in the 4.6's in the 40. All that is god given.
Taco is a great RAW product that can be molded. He isn't going to be needed or counted on to play right away. He'll get his redshirt and the coaches will develop him.
Very true, if he can be coached up (which he will definitely need) then watch out. As far as a 4*, I am not seeing it. But that is JMO.
We have 3 defensive line coaches on staff.
What are you even talking about?!? All I said was "Michigan benefited from a Tattoo scandal" and you decided to get picky and ignore the point I was making.
Gonna need every single one of them with this kid.
most of the star rankings are based off of guys like Steve W and the like seeing kids in camp settings, running 40's, and watchin their high-light tapes.
Taco looks like a specimen at the combines and runs great 40 times and his highlight film shows him doing spectacular things.
Hence, the 4*'s.
Kids like Taco that are that big and that sort of athletes do not grow on trees. Last year Ohio had one like that in Pharaoh Brown and he wound up at Oregon.
Pitman was a great DE with great technique, but he wasn't as big or fast.
Washington was just as freakish but had better technique and a better player, ready to play right away.
Guys with that size and that ability to move- only a few of them in the midwest every class, hence the 4*'s.
If only we could land studs like Luke Roberts...
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Wait so your telling me the guys who give these rankings and it is their jobs to give these rankings know less than random fans? I mean these guys see them at combines live and watch most of their games but after watching 3 mins of film this guy knows more about the player? Better tell Steve and Noah.
So you skip over the fact that you said 2 4 stars and 1 3 stars on the OL are ELITE recruits while all the Bucknuts saying our haul yesterday was garbage despite being all 4 stars and them you just pick out Taco when I was addressing all the recruits over the weekend, then you completely ignore my comments about Tressel's involvement in the "tattoo scandal" and you are calling me out on nit picking ... got it. You picked 1 thing from my posts to dispute and only brought up Taco. Yep, no nitpicking there.
