I'll take that over Sparty....he had been saying some good things about MSU the past few months.
The only thing MSU does nationally is show up in the police blotter:
Just as long as we don't pull a Bucknuts and wish a Hillbilly-Jihad on he and his family.
Hillbilly-Jihad... that's a HALOL.
I'm guessing you won't see many "we didn't want him"s or "may he be afflicted with lupus and lyme disease"s around here
Yes, previous fatwas have been issued against Herbstreit, Pryor, and Kyle Kalis' kneecaps.
OSU fans always bring the class
And Hillbilly Jihad is my fantasy team name. Thank you, good sir.
hillbilly - jihad = best line of the day!
This will be immediately added to the MGoDictionary and be used forever more.
So long as I receive appropriate attribution
..is the sincerest form of flattery. Thank you.
And a Hillbilly-Jihad to you too!
Damn. I would assume this also hurts our chances with Stanford.
I'm pretty sure we have been out on standford for awhile.
We might have been out with Standford forever, but we are still in it with Stanford. Bizzarre timing of the commitment because he had seemed pretty adamant about committing at the ua all american game. Too bad, I think he is a future all american.
Not a surprise, and our DL class looks excellent (would be super-excellent with O'Brien). I hope we didn't make a mistake by telling Pittman whatever we told him, though.
"You have U of M ability but MSU grades."
Others have UMich grades but MSU ability. Either way, they are not starting.
I wish him luck in every game but "The Game".
I wish him luck in every part of his life but OSU football.
I completely agree.
completely and utterly wrong.
Heh, nice save.
That's too bad, but it seems like our DL recruiting has come down to Danny O'Brien or none. Wish him the best of luck except when he plays us.
That is too bad, but I don't mind having Danny O'Brien in this class.
Haven't seen an update on him in a long time, are we completely out of it for his services?
The staff has shown that it is going after a select few players that they want and stick by those players. The spot appears to be Obrien's unless he wants to go somewhere else.
When we stopped recruiting Pittman I really hoped we would land Washington. I really liked the guys film and now we will be playing against him. Good luck to the kid.
Good job by Fickell to land him, there is no problem with a homegrown kid staying home especially after the NCAA has shown they have no integrity to level nuclear level sanctions on OSU (I dont assume much at least as they didnt even interview 3/4 of the shady characters from Tressell Gate).
Would also presume that O$U is telling recruits at this point "don't worry, it's all good" as far as further and more serious NCAA punishment, which would again be disappointing.
That worked for USC.
Really wish he were a Wolverine, but he'll do well wherever he goes. Great athlete and a bright future.
He never seemed to show that much interest in Michigan anyway. The fact he never could make the time over the summer to make a visit (unofficial or official) up here said a lot. Oh well, good luck to him except when TSIO plays us.
there's been a lot of speculation that pittman's commitment to msu is pretty soft. any chance we swoop back in and relieve sparty of their top recruit?
then i really hope he gets his grades up. the rcmb meltdown would be epic!
I like Valenti most days. Although, he goes on his "thatsss riiight" Michigan Football - the only school with tradition, sarcasm mode. He has been soaking up that MSU butter for 3 years too long!
I really don't think so. I believe Pittman's coach gave an interview after he committed to state in which he said UM told Pittman they were full at his position. That problem still stands. The only way I see it changing is if they re-shuffle D-line positions and/or LBs and realize they can take another rush end.
I'd take O'Brien instead. Think global. Vote local.
Bring in Yuri Wright!!!
Regarding an impending commitment, 4-star Cincinnati DE Adolphus Washington says, "Not true... I'm still open to everyone."
Best of luck, Adophus. Have a great career (except when you play us). FYI - I know a spot where you can get a great tattoo for cheap. Just ask for the "New Buckeye Special" . . . .
are reporting this.
Twitter world actually saying Washington not committed yet:
RT @JoshHelmholdt: Regarding an impending commitment, 4-star DE Adolphus Washington says, "Not true... I'm still open to everyone."
I guess we will know for sure tonight when he answers the question in his live chat on rivals.
Tim just tweeted:
Adolphus Washington further clarified that #OhioState is still his leader, but no commitment is imminent
