Another one off the board.
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Another one off the board.
Now he won't be taking up a spot in our class and we can work hard on Parker, Knight, Jefferson, etc.
What do you think are our chances? I think Knight could be a solid pickup, and probably the most likely to commit.
Was that a typo or were you trying to be funny? Can we at least have respect for a team that beat us? It's Purdue not Turdue, poop jokes were "funny" 10 years ago and even then they weren't funny.
You can always ignore it instead of being an ass.
You have gone off the deep end.
He committed last weekend, not sure if he made anymore visits after BC
you mean Purdookey.
I'm not alarmed, disappointed, or concerned that we didn't get a commitment from a 3-star WR from KY.
he's from ohio and was recruited by u-m as a safety. but he wanted to play wr
Exactly how are we going to get better, than, when defensive recruiting sucks arse and the coaching staff doesn't have a clue?
...when you join the staff, Mr. KnowItAll.
bouje: Calm down. Since when do we care about being respectful to opponents on a message board?
steve sharik: IIRC, Swigert is from Ohio. But no biggie.
Like I said I'd like to have respect for other programs. Sure if they were a big rival I wouldn't care but I also hate it when I'm going to a Michigan game where Michigan fans are railing on/making fun of teams that we are playing that are not very good. For example: F*** Western!
There is no place for that, and it's uncalled for.
I kind of like it when ND fans call us skunk bears.
I think we should embrace that one.
Maybe we could become the house bear Paul F Tompkins pines for.
actually, bouje, i agree with you. i can't stand it when people say crap like "rosenpuke". however, with "the turdue game", it would be acceptable if he meant "our defense laid a turd on the field in that game".
These stupid ass sayings make us no better than OSU fans or our best friend the OSU punk rocker guy or whatever his name is.
Man, it's not a big deal, why do you care what other people say? Lighten up and have a sense of humor. People can say whatever they want. Unless you are a fascist and want to censor everyone you don't agree with. You damn fascist.
people care what people say because we want to partake in intelligent conversation. that's why we're here and not on freep or mlive or any of the other silly slap fight internet tough guy sites.
Get off your high horse.
Bouje you miss the point of why people hate "Notre Lame" and "O$U" it's not because it's disrespectful. It's because it's incredibly tired and old. "Turdue" is neither.
Swigert is from Louisville, Ohio. The confusion between Ohio and Kentucky is understandable.
Saw Louisville and didn't bother looking at the state.
I think we have a good chance with Knight, but I think a lot is riding on the OSU game (not just for him, but for a bunch of recruits). If we get lambasted, that could bode unwell. But if we can win or at least keep it close, then I think good things could happen with a handful of visitors.
Some of them are classic, such as Purdon't. Others are annoying or don't make much sense--I once saw a post with a guy writing "HAHA you guyz lost to ellanoise!" I don't know if that's a joke or if he actually doesn't know how to spell Illinois. scUM would be funny if those using it didn't do so with the angst of a celibate 15-year-old Dungeons and Dragons fan club president with asthma. One of my favorites is still "Ann Arbor is a whore." I have to admit, that's pretty funny.
"East Lansing is a woman of negotiable affection"
recently heard this (maybe on mgoblog): if Ann Arbor is a whore, how come you couldn't get in?
She is a very, very expensive whore.
