"...but Cooper gets the nod because stayed for the entire duration of the two-day event."
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
All I saw was "four scholarship offers" and that told me all I needed to hear.
That's nice and all, but you have went from lighting up Michigan oline commits to "but Cooper gets the nod because stayed for the entire duration of the two-day event."
Congrats on the future commit.

You mock Dantonio's recruiting- but it's similar classes like that, that have beaten UM 4 straight years and won 22 games over the last 2 years, including a Big Ten Title
Not sure what there is to laugh about
Not trying to get in a fight or banned
GL to UM this season
That's faulty logic though. Just because Dantonio has had success with some lower ranked recruits doesn't mean that he can sustain it with lower ranked recruits. Statistically, it is nearly impossible.
That is solid and congrats to that. Let us know when they have a season that gets them in a BCS Bowl though.
quit living in the past
We are college football
Wisconsin begs to differ
So now Wisconsin is proof that MSU will continue to succeed? I'm interested to hear the logic behind that one.
They haven't sustained it as much as USC, Alabama, LSU, Ohio.
Any ways if you're fine with making the Rose Bowl every once in a while when we go to the NC then you don't have to beleive recruiting rankings matter.
They haven't even made it to the Rose Bowl yet, I wouldn't want to give them too tough of expectations.
And Iowa, Illinois, Purdue, NW...
All school that rose up to play in a BCS Bowl, something MSU hasn't ever done, only to fall back to being another also ran.
This, they had a nice run under cousins, but in the end it didn't amount to Rose Bowl appearance.
Never said that..
MSU will never recruit with the likes of those teams you mentioned (and including UM)..
If that means they compete for Rose Bowls semi-regularly- then it is what it is.. not sure any MSU fan thinks they are close to being good enough to compete for a National Title
But even having this convo speaks to how well Dantonio has done to date and the impact he's had on MSU football
And to Never Lose Hoke, "So now Wisconsin is proof that MSU will continue to succeed? "
It's not proof- just showing that a team that doesn't recruit in the top 25 ever can be very good year in and year out and win consistently
Sure- of course there will be opposite ends of the spectrum, but until MSU falls back down like those 4 schools you listed did- shouldn't MSU and Dantonio be given the benefit of the doubt?
You see it as a nice run that will end
I see it as the beginning of winning culture at MSU
Who's right? Currently no one- let's see how MSU does over the next 5 years and see where the program stands
As to your last point, I never said it was impossible. Just that, statistically speaking, it is nearly impossible and doesn't happen very often.
You listed one school with average recruiting rankings that had continued success, I listed 4 schools that fell back. You can hope all you want, I will go with the percentages.
Sure- it might not happen often and the %'s certainly don't show that it happens a lot.. but it can be done..
Oregon has success with lower classes until recently, Wisky's been winning consistently for more than a decade with low classes
I have no idea how it'll play out- but I like the direction of MSU football and where it's headed- and that in itself, shows how far this program has come in the last 5 years.. can't wait to see how the next 5 years turn out as well
probably havin the beginnings of some health problems
agreed, when you make a bcs bowl then come tell us how great 2-3* recruits are.
fair enough, we can't say with certainty that you'll fall back just as you can't say with certainty that you won't. In a few years we will all see how it works out.
It cracks me up that sparties come over here and allow themselves to get trolled. Typical little brother, Trying to hang out with the big boys even if it means getting picked on.
always thinkin eventually they'll be accepted oughta realize by now its not gona happen!
