Just saw the article about this. OSU people sure are obsessed about Michigan. They don't even seem to care that they got a good player...it's all about what they were able to take from Michigan.
Umm your an idiot. Go home
Tends to happen. It's one of the few recruiting battles Urban has won against Hoke, they freak right out when that happens.
Here is Meyers recruiting style. See who Michigan offers then wait a week then Ohio offers them. Or wait to see if the out of state kids turn you down then offer your instate kids.
The rankings only account for the top 18 kids or so, so the four fewer kids argument is pointless. Meyer has a trend of offering a recruit a few days after Michigan offers, and that trend of offering after major programs offer leads back to his days at Florida.
According to many Ohio kids that Hoke recruited, Hoke lied his ass off about how the sanctions at tOSU were going to be ----years of bowls lost, etc....So taking back an Ohio kid who may have been swayed by lies in the first place isn't quite as bad as other "flips". Suggesting that Urbs would lie to get a recruit without any proof--especially when we know what Hoke was saying about impending tOSU penalties--seems like sour grapes.
You lost your mind. All the reports i heard from any kids who visited said that Hoke didn't even talk about the impending sanctions to Ohio. That is coming from kids that didn't even commit to Michigan.
Michigan still has Smith, Thomas, McCray, Geodeon, Dukes, Butt, Charlton and Douglas. All Ohio players Michigan has went into your back back and got a committment from. Michigan has to leave you some of out in state talent. Think of it as a early Christmas gift.
All of the Ohio kids that Michigan has now all knew about the sanction Ohio had.
That is a media fabrication made up by Baximus and other OSU reporters. Even OSU commits that were recruited by Michigan admit to Hoke never once mentioning OSU or anything other school during their recruitments. Hoke doesn't see a need to negatively recruit, and why should he?
We have to start making our commits get giant Wolverine tatoos on their forearms. Jk, anyway I will feel a lot better if we end up getting McQuay.
2 reasons that immediately come to mind:
1) For Ohio State to be a true national power we need to keep the best players in Ohio in Ohio; as a Penn State fan surely you can relate--consider what a Penn State team with Noah Spence, Rushel Shell, Alex Anzalone, Robert Foster, Dorian Johnson, Tyler Boyd, etc. in a couple of years would be when added to what you already have. Difference between an 8-4 team and a 12-0 team imo.
2) Michigan is our rival, so keeping any talent away from them is a victory. That's one less talented player we have to deal with. If you don't think Ohioans should be excited that an Ohio talent at a skill position isn't going to Michigan, consider Desmond Howard and Charles Woodson for a second. Conley isn't anywhere near that level, but "Ohio WR/CB/ATH commits to Michigan" is my least least favorite phrase in the English language haha. Outside of "Biakabutuka breaks free for another long run!" ;'(
Your player's are getting more FREE tattoo's AGAIN?
We never said Conley was not a talented kid because he is. And remember you came to our site not the other way around.
I'm not sure what you're replying to. Your two comments indicate that I said something negative about Michigan or Michigan fans? Neither of which are the case.
Right. Did you forget about is former players at Florida? GTFO
So you HAAADDDD to use Arizona?
Sorry I misunderstood.
McCray is a stud and I wished we offered earlier. Smith will suit your offense whenever you guys finally implement it lol. Geodeon or whatnot had always.been a um fan and butt and dukes are good but seem incredibly skinny? Charlton is the only real question mark but all are good gets from Ohio for you guys and I hate to see them there lol.
Any word on the possibility of McCray at tight end for you guys? I know he is an amazing lb but he is a play maker on offense.
Read the post again. I hardly was beating my chest. Or trolling.
All I said was that your coach recruited him as a WR ONLY. When he was told he could try wideout at OSU, your BEST recruiter (and that's not your head coach) did a 180 and told him you'd give him a shot at WR too!! And why didn't he pull the scholarship offer?? Your coach swore he'd do that if a verbal commit took other visits. So much for his principle, huh?? And you guys are 8-4... soon to be 8-5... so don't tell me you're set at at CB.
We have a top 5 recruiting class and the ONLY reason you are recruiting Ohio is because Urban is able to recruit nationally like Tressel couldn't (and he still blew your doors off!) so we all know it's hardly true that you are stealing our recruits.
And you best get some from Ohio since you'd be nothing without them!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
No problem at all! It's easy to read things a lot of different ways on a message board (especially from an OSU fan on a Michigan board or vice versa).
In all honesty, Michigan's going to get David Dawson back without a doubt, so I think you guys came out on top in this whole thing anyway.
I think your right in regards to David Dawson. I have visited a couple of your boards but have never posted anything because I see no reason to start a fight just to start a fight. I have a very good friend from C-Bus and we have fun with the rivalry.
When did Hoke ever swear that? Give a link or you're banned.
You are serious??? Hoke has always said that??
And are you so insecure you can't debate. I'm not being personal.... I'm talking about your team and recruiting tactics. You posters claimed that Meyer was doing something that Hoke wouldn't. That's a lie.
But give me a minute... I'll find a link for you.
