"We take our time," Dantonio said. "I'm not caught up in how fast we do things. I'm caught up in the end result.
"It almost seems like nowadays they want to have the mythical national championship in terms of recruiting. I think when you look at over time it's not always the four- or five-star player who goes on to (have success)."

What else could he possibly say, while being taken to the woodshed the way he is?
Damage control at its finest.

Yeah, but when its 20 4* versus 3 4*, guess which team is gonna have more 4* make their potential?
Exactly. He scouted Kalis, Ojemudia, Richardson, Wormley, Kulger, Shallman... You know the 20+ kids that had MSU offers and then went to Michigan in the last 2 recruiting cycles. You know that Sam the Eagle would be singing a different tune if those kids had committed to MSU instead.
MSU has no choice to say it. They cannot imply they no longer can recruit with Michigan. This sends telltale signs to the kids. In addition, I have often speculated MSU keeps driving the Michigan game as #1 to them, as they do not have a national rivalry game like Michigan. They (MSU) need to stay relevant on the national scene, and constantly saying Michigan is their rivalry game gives them their chance at national attention. The very fact we consider them #3 behind OSU and ND, drives them nuts IMO. By us not giving them attention, we are not feeding their engine.

Ironic, isn't it?
Am I missing something? Doesn't he realize that the majority of Michigan commits have a Sparty offer... It's not taking his time, its getting his a$$ handed to him on the recruiting trail, causing him them to move on to plan b-c-d recruits.
Full spin cycle in effect for Sparty....

How did that Kugler visit go for him....oh wait.
Somebody needs to tell him that "mythical recruiting championships" translate to national championships; just ask Nick Saban or Pete Carroll.

Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
tbh, I feel he has the right to say whatever he wants... it would have to be extremely irritating to win 4 in a row vs your in-state rival and still get asked questions about our kids that haven't played a snap yet.
That being said, I imagine he is worried because he wanted many of the future Wolverines to be wearing green, and will have to settle for whatever he ends up with.
Lmao. They were hoping Hurst would do the same thing for them. Too bad for them, he still visited Michigan, and then committed to Michigan.
This is hilarious. We both offered 119 kids, mostly the same kids. The kids chose us, yet he is being selective? This guy chooses to say the dumbest things when he is annoyed.
He does well with his 3 stars, I don't want to take that away from him, but there is a huge difference between being selective and kids choosing other schools over state....
I think he may blow a gasket when we beat him this year.
Personally, I'm glad Dantonio is a very good talent evaluator (as tRCMB will tell you). It just makes us know that all these players we're beating him out for are elite.
"We have signed the top player in the state of Michigan each of the past two years. Pride comes before the fall."
"We didn't want him anyway."
"Recruiting is a marathon not a sprint."
"We have an eye tor talent no one else sees."
"Recruiting doesn't matter. It's the coaching that counts."
"There are plenty of other fish in sea."
"There's always next year."
"I'm very excited to be back in South Carolina and proud to be the new HC at USCe. I've always been one of the biggest cocks ever!"
Coach Mark Dantonio
I would rather beat them then any other team, just for this year. My disdain for dantonio and his smug comments is reaching an all time high.
I hope he blows more then a gasket

Yeah, that's right, 67 times.
A) I would suggest that both staffs will focus hard on this game every year and in the future I don't see either letting the other rattle off 4 in a row so right off the bat I would say that sort of dominance by either team is over.
B) What does "i hope he blows more than a gasket" mean? Are you so angry you hope he has another heart problem? That's bush league. Your better than that.
signed the team who cheers personal fouls.
No skippy, I just mean I hope he blows someone from UM. I'm a dick , but I am a christian too. I don't wish him dead, I respect him. I just cringe when he speaks. He annoys me more then any other coach in history
..coming from the poster who sends harassing and homophobic PM's to posters who upset him.
+1, if I had any left.
Now ... who was the MSU person that cut off our recruitier at that conference ....
MSU fans are so delusional. They haven't done anything that Michigan hasn't done in the last ten years. The only difference is that we don't dance in the streets with a simple 10 win season.
He could have learned something about recruiting. Oh well, their loss, Michigan's gain.
