Steve Sarkisian always tweets "WOOF!" whenever Washington picks up a commit.
OSU actually pulled his offer before he decommitted..../s
Hmmm...what sound does a Wolverine make? "GRRAARRARWARWAWR!"?
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I imagine if Hoke actually had a Twitter (does he even use a computer? lol), he'd tweet something like "It's MICHIGAN, fergodssake!"
Seems like a lot of the coaches have been getting into Twitter lately. Would be awesome to see some signature celebration for a commit.
I'm not sure Hoke will get a twitter, but with the new wild west rules for social media, I wouldn't be surprised to see him get one.
I think UM should go with....
Dear diary: Jackpot.
Actually he would just roll up his UM polo shirt, flex & someone would tweet out " Flex Time". Coach Hoke does not need to be 40 to be a man....
You guys are funny, just this weekend you all were ripping the kid saying you had plenty better than him on your board, how it did not matter that he was going to OSU, now the changing of the tune! Lol, this recruiting game is quite comical, hard to believe it is this competitive so far away from signing day!
As far as what we are saying on Bucknuts, a majority of people expected it based on the fact he is taking visits so quick after committing, he should, he's got one crack at this, hope nothing but the best for him regardless of where he goes!
I think Hoke should tweet "HAIL!"
No one was ripping him. He's a great player, but we were all trying to stay optimistic by looking at other WDEs we're in on. I'm sure your board would do the same if, say, Kyle Trout had committed to MSU.
sour grapes ?...
Pretty sure A LOT on this board have wanted, and still wants, Hand/Mone/Marshall/McDowell for our DL haul. Not sure how everyone was ripping the kid this weekend?
Please provide the quotes from those that did what you claim.
Meanwhile, read the bucknuts response to the decommitment:
"Oh well, better kids are lining up to play for Urbs"
"Who didn't see that coming?"
"No big loss".
Hypocrites be hypocritin.
To be honest, we do have better options than Marshall on the board.
+ some others I'm forgetting.
But we are happy because it's OSU decommitment from a Michigan kid.
But we will most likely miss on some of those guys, so Marshall is a GREAT plan B player.

I could compile a book full of posts from Bucknuts, Buckeye Grove, Buckeye Planet, etc. of all the dismissive comments OSU fans have made over the last two years about Kalis, Wormley, Strobel, Bolden, Thomas, Smith, Gedeon, McCray, Ferns...
It works both ways. Both fanbases hate to see home-state guys go to the other side, especially when the home state school wanted them.
We didn't rip him, we said we didn't need him. Still stands true today.
People spin it however they want to, especially if it's something they feel as if they can use against us. If a kid decides to commit elsewhere, there isn't much we as fans can do about it. If you like the kid, you hope something positive happens for the good guys, or you simply look at other kids who could potentially fill that slot. As Due51 points out and to quote him..."Hypocrites be hypocritin."
At least this is an honest answer! I would agree that the main thing I saw out of this is that it was a Michigan player, he was from anywhere else your fans wouldn't have flipped out and we wouldn't have been as mouthy, lol
I always said from a talent stand point that he was/is replaceable.
