"He had all that interest from those "big" schools prior to his commitment to us. Those coaches were constantly telling him he was too good to end up at MSU, which is garbage. The only difference is when he decided to focus on footba he started listening to those idiots. If he's truly focused on a NC then he's headed out of conference. If anyone has seen Bama play, and I know you have, no one in this conference is anywhere near ready to take on their best. UM? Not even close. tOSU? No shot at this point."
I marked this one. Love the 'Not even close' comment.

Why are there MSU fans over here? Shouldn't they be busy jumping off a bridge
42 Big Ten championships to your 7, and the University of Chicago has the same amount of Big Ten championships as you, and they dropped football from their program in 1939. Sparty gonna Spart!!
People dont understand that you dont have to be better then Bama to win the national championship. All they need to do is lose 1 or 2 games in the gauntlet of the SEC, while you have a better season in your easier conference and hopefully you get a favorable team you matchup with when you play for the crystal football. So much luck and chance throughout the entire football season are necessary to win the natty.
Also, Bama is not head and shoulders better than everyone.
People talk about Bama like its 2001 Miami or 1995 Nebraska. It isn't.
LSU, TAMU, and UGA all had rosters capable of beating Bama.
Michigan can get there. So can Ohio.

MSU fans are facing a stark reality .... irrelevancy in the B10 again. Yes, they will preach 'Michigan needs to win something first', or 'We beat you 4 of the last 5 times'. MSU fans fail to see how the environment and entities operating within have shifted. The shift is recognized by OSU and ND, as they have both stepped up their aggressiveness with recruiting, University image, football play, etc. UM will reach this level again quickly. Denial from the MSU fan base is dangerous at this time.
Skip doesn't see it either.
They will just go back to not caring anymore and only follow basketball.
But it will be a fun game every year, and tbey will give us a tough time anf win occassionally, but the fact that kids view tnem as a second or third tier school will ultimately hinder any chances at stepping up into the spotlight. The fans are bitter and tbey should be, they had a window and did a lot with it, but lerception nationally and even locally never changed . The hardest part for tbem is realizing the window is almost gone now. Urban and home are sucking up the attention and the recruits. If michigan has a dominating win in el this, I'm assuming we may see white flags raised.
Although hoke does have some proving to do. This yeat we can't screw around either. We have a schedule set up to win, and we have to come ojt with 2 losses or less. The kids coming in should start providing us with everything we need to compete nationally next year, bjt there is no mlre next year. If we flop this year and have a bad season, then we must realize all ojr pieces may not be in place.....me have to have a big year to catapult us into our future.
Skip reminds me of Rrekk on the MSU scout board.
That won't be true in a few years when we have the "playoff" in place. Bama can still lose in conference and be considered one of the top 4 schools to play in the playoff. Plus, no school wants to be the champion because their conference had the easier slate so though in theory what you say has validity, that can't the the mentality of wanting to be the champ based on other teams beating each other in a stronger conference.

MSU claiming the reason their football program is lacking is because they focus too much on academics
Gotta love Sparty ...
Lol, this made my day.
Why do they even argue with us? Too funny.

I already told you. This is where I come to find out the latest on MSU football recruiting...

Only 6 more national championships and UM can catch up to Princeton.

Pretty sure he was serious.
