Throwing this out there:
I. Why the hell are we trolling so hard for Bucknuts on here? Go to f***ing Bucknuts or TBB if all you want to do is lob ignorant bull**** back and forth with idiots.
II. OSUs "scraps" are pretty f***ing good.
III. Receivers under 6' can become great football players, and receivers over 6' aren't God's gift to football. I love some of the kids the Michigan staff has recruited, but I would also trade Michigan's 2013 WR recruits for OSU's. Also, some notable receivers who weren't taller than 6': Mario Manningham, Jason Avant, Desmond Howard, Jeremy Frickin Gallon. Can we at least make fun of a category of players that doesn't include Michigan's best current offensive skill player and its best all-time offensive skill player?
IV. Neither Collier or Speight have set the recruiting world on fire. Two inconsequential facts: Collier is OSU's plan G, while Speight was Michigan's first offer.
V. If someone thinks your topic isn't worth its own thread, you are probably not posting the most meaningful content. From the other side, this board is far from overrun with meaningless content. There is really no point in arguing over these threads like that.

I couldn't agree more. Do we really need a new thread for each time they get a 3* commit?
With the way they're recruiting, that's really way too many threads for this board.
Just can't help yourself, can ya?
Kidding with ya. I chuckled.
Let me get this right. . . . When you want to high jack a thread for five . . . six pages arguing about some arbitrary bull $%#^ that's not annoying? However when guys are actually engaging in football banter on a football recruiting board you then make a thread about how annoying this site is becoming? Are you up to a B cup yet?
"Football Banter": Football discussion that has little or nothing to do with actual football. See also "Dick Measuring Contest" or "Pissing Match"
Which one of those examples was the six page highjack you had a few weeks back? Notice there are no threads regarding Bkp "Dick Measuring Contest" and just how unbelievably annoying it was.
At least I was talking about Michigan football and not doing my best little brother impersonation.
Mosquito bites - No one likes them.
good post bkp! (and not just cuz im a buckeye fan)...
the "scraps" and "crumbs" b.s is getting old on both sites (bucknuts too, we are just as much to blame)...
the coaches, and their staffs (of both teams) have forgotten more about football and recruiting then any of us will ever know, yet we criticize their choices from our sofas...
i know the rivalry between our schools is intense, and the urge to razz each other is irresistable, but it does make it hard to discuss football when everyone is just typing scraps or crumbs about every recruit mentioned...
altho, it is pretty funny, sometimes
I was good with the OL scraps thread. You guys are gonna be thin and I'm all for talking crap where its due.
It just annoys me when people get drawn into bickering and just start making up shit, or even worse, ragging on things that are true about their own team.
I agree that we're stooping to Nutter and Sparty levels with all the trolling, but it's the dog days of summer. People are a little starved for real meant-and-potatoes football . Personally, I try to restrain myself from responding to each nutter or sparty flame, but sometimes you gotta fight fire with fire - or in this case, fight bs with bs.
Um cool... I guess.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
All the constant bickering and trolling does annoy me a little bit tbh. It's why I generally ignore the UM/MSU thread on tBB.
But what gets me is the situation where you mention we experience something similar. IIRC at the time Channing Stribling was offered he was a camp player and was only rated an 81. After a good senior season where he blew up he moved up the rankings a bit but is still a 3 star. How can we make fun of OSU for offering and getting a commit from a 3 star that they saw at their camp when we did the exact same thing?
"Isn't it amazing what somebody will do when he can't bunt." - Vin Scully
all UM's recruits are the god's gifts of football and all ohio's guys are #scraps...I'm done
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
"meat" but otherwise you are absolutely correct, I am so anxious for football I'm going crazy. I think that's why we see board integrity breaking down a bit and so much bs surfacing. The only cure will be more football.
And the OP keeps up his reputation of worst poster on this site...
That's entirely unnecessary. It's one thing to generally complain about posting tendencies, it's quite another to aim shots at specific posters.
There is no need for this. Uncalled for IMO.
