So you're going to classify a fan base by the statements of the few?
I think his post was sarcastic in nature.
Well i don't read bucknuts regularly and since said posters took the time to come to a national board or a Michigan board to post that McCray will flip, what would you like me to do?
That's fair Willy. The information you had available to you led you to that conclusion.
Sarcasm doesn't travel well through the internet or at least I am bad at recognizing it.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
No worries man. I just thought i would help you out.
Thanks and we're cool even if you are a fan of you know who
There still committing wrong doings, I don't think we have anything to worry about.
How about Desmond, or Charles? Just can't get enough of these jokers.
I do, and there are plenty more that think he'll flip.
Have you read this post the reaction and ridiculousness has clearly been poisonous.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I have to believe that he has been Blue too long to flip. I think if he would have gotten an Ohio offer a couple days or weeks after he committed to Michigan he might be more willing to switch. He should realize he wasn't on their radar until a couple of other recruits rebuffed them.
So basically, the players Tressel would have offered would have committed is what you are trying to say??
Why should he realize that? Michigan wanted him. Michigan told a couple LBs, including Anzalone, not to visit because they were full with McCray and Gedeon. Michigan obviously feels he fits into what they want to do and that he will have a great chance at being a very good player for Michigan. By not offering McCray until other recruits rebuffed them, Ohio obviously doesn't have those same feelings for McCray, at least not to the degree that Michigan does.
Ohio wanted Anzalone and not McCray. UofM wanted McCray. Haha!
Im not interested at all how it plays out. First off, the majority of the Ohio fan base thought he wasn't good enough for an offer since Urbs never extended one, and since Hoke cant recruit and he offered him and Ohio didn't, he was obviously an inferior prospect. Second, if he did flip to Ohio, the majority of the fan base didnt even want him, because Urbs only recruits SEC speed, and McCray apparently didn't have that earlier in the year, but does now? I know there are rational Ohio fans who were pissed they never offered when they should have, and all other fans completely downplayed him going to Michigan for various reasons, as stated above.
Can any of these trolls speak to what this says about Urban? McCray was a decorated legacy of a former captain and he was treated this way. You went with a national kid, risked shaming a legacy and now expect him to go back on his word
I don't usually like mentioning that other school... they don't deserve the time of day. But lately they have really done a great job of providing some comedic relief in this slow period.
Plus one to the last two!
He wants the best player available to him, no matter if he's a legacy or not. He tries to get the player, who he thinks is the best prospect, no matter the location. He's trying to get the best.
That's all I got. Maybe, this is McCray's spot on our board. Idj.
Around that time Anzalone and Neals interest were very high. You know the rest. I know all of us tOSU fans consider Urban "God" but i dont think our HC saw that decommittment nonsense coming. If he did, im sure McCrary wouldve gotten an offer over them.
Plain and simple, he thought those 2 and Jaylon were better. And we're only taking a couple this year. Nothing wrong with that

Neither one of you 2 even got close to addressing Rico's real question. Now that Urban feels the need to offer McCray, why should McCray now go back on his word to Michigan?
Kind of obvious. He grew up a fan and his father wants him to go there. Good enough? As far as legacies go, words cant describle how happy i am that we offered, and got, Archies son. Especially with fewer scholarships
Nope not good enough. Michigan obviously feels like he fits into what they want to do more than what OSU does. Doesn't make sense to me that you would go to the school that doesn't feel like you are good enough for them.
