It's funny that they think they stand a chance. Dorian Johnson goes to Pitt or WVU before he ever goes to OSU.
I'm glad Hoke doesn't rely on scandals to recruit. Get kids that bleed blue, not the ones that have mixed feelings or a change of heart.
We did go after Armani Reeves hard last year.
Yeah, but we were in his final two with PSU before the scandal...

Is it just me...or Urban having trouble without PSU's scandal? Why depend on anyone?
No coach relies on scandals to help their own class, but any coach who doesnt jump at an opportunity to take advantage of another schools misfortune shouldnt be coaching. You think Hoke would turn down Brennemen?
Do you think Hoke would smell the blood in the water and go after any and every recruit that Penn State loses, or would he wait until hearing word from the recruit himself that he's opening things back up again?
Even though it's 100% legal to go after a recruit until the LOI is signed, I still cant see Hoke takng advantage of a tender situation like whats going on in Happy Valley.
BUT .. like I said .. if (lets just say for the sake of conversation) that Brenneman woul come out and say that he's open again .. THATS when I believe Hoke would put that full court press on again.
Maybe I'm wrong .. maybe I'm right. Just my
I certainly respect what Hoke has done. I'm sure part of it is that you guys have your classes sealed up pretty much so early. Plus, Michigan and PSU haven't fought over very many recruits.
This is funny, how soon you forget, are you serious, what was hoke telling Kalis? He totally used that scandle to swing him, stop acting like you guys are so above the Frey and not willing to do what it takes to get the kids you want, your coach isn't a saint, gimme a break!
Let's tell them how great they are doing. Let's keep it quiet, I just want the trend to continue
What did he tell Kalis? I am so sure you know. From what Kalis said, Hoke didn't talk negatively about OSU so not sure where you are coming from with this crap.
Read the guys quote he said hoke only takes recruits that bleed blue, so Kali's committed to Ohio State and reaffirmed, so why would hoke recruit him if he only goes after people who bleed blue? Do tell, thanks
Like I said all these coaches recruit negatively stop acting like your so special, gimme a break, I'm sure hoke said nothing, right, sure. So delusional it's pathetic. I'm sure when hoke was trying to get reeves and Williams lasr year from PSU it's because they were also bleeding blue! Right!
Obviously Kalis wanted to look around. If i remember correctly Kalis said he more committed to Tressel than to OSU.
Maybe all OSU coaches recruit negatively. Hoke has enough good things to sell about Michigan. He doesn't need to say negative things about other schools. Maybe you should take your crying self back to bucknuts if you don't like hearing bad things about OSU. I can assure you that you will not be seeing positive comments about OSU on this site.
Agreed, hope urbs stays national, I'm more than happy to snatch up top ohio kids
We were already in the top group for them. When they opened up their recruitment it was fair game. You are splitting hairs here. No one can say one way or the other with a hundred percent accuracy what any coach has said. But your coach is trending in one direction of morality, ours in another...just sayin
I'll take all the Ohio kids I can get. They tend to be good, smart and tough Midwestern miss that I love on my football team. Osu won at a top level with them and ill take them all day long. I mean tressel set the bar for winning with Midwestern kids. Michigan won for years but we recruited much more nationally then osu did. And I'm not saying osu didn't pull kids from across the country, I'm just saying they got the bulk of their miss from right at home. If I were an osu fan id be sick. It would be hard for me to trust what urbs is doing when they were so succesful doing the opposite for so long.
I hope this continues
Didn't Reeves say that when he got back in contact with Michigan they were one of the few schools that didn't bring up PSU's problems?

Not to mention when Kalis's dad brought it up Hoke's response was its an unfortunate situation and he left it at that, totally negative recruiting on Hoke's part. Keep crying though mason.
exactly, its amazing how quickly those fans seem to forget the outstanding success they had under jt while he kept ohio locked down. They should be very concerned about this new trend and yet they're so deluded they go on and on about urbs recruiting nationally and talk like the kids were snaggin from ohio (guys that woulda been on their team under tress) are no good. It's quite entertaining. will be even more so when all these ohio kids hit the field for us and tear the bucknuts a new one.
Jt gave us the blueprint and the state....
sure did! and now I expect our coaches to be able to use it and have the same level (or better) success!
