Just passing along info. MSU OL Coach visited Fisher in T.City last night. Spartans are underdog, but they obviously feel they have a shot if they are still recruiting him this hard.
Updated odds: Oregon 25%/Florida $25/UM 25%/ MSU 25%
Updated odds: Oregon 25%/Florida $25/UM 25%/ MSU 25%
I see what you did there. Nice.
I live in TC and feel confident Fisher will be Blue. If you grow up a Michigan fan and have a Michigan offer you're not going to Msu. If he travels to Oregon or Florida I'm banking that he's taking free trips as an 18 year old. Keep the faith.
That's what everyone thought about Zettel and he isn't too far from TC
I think it's different to go out of state than to go to a instate rival of the school you've been a fan of for your whole life.
Just my two cents...
had some ambivalence about Michigan all a long. I remember reading in one of his first interviews that Michigan was his leader/favorites but, he listed PSU as one of his favorites. He said he wanted to visit PSU and he had not even gotten an offer. So, in retropsect PSU was there all along possibly even with Michigan but, he had no offer and had never visited the school. I suppose the decision wether it was a SNAFU or not no opinion on my part one way or the other looked kind of funky and disorganized to him. He had no relationship to the coaches what so ever but had establish relationships with PSU and as stated before had PSU as one of his favorites.
Very nice but its the SEC they pay way more than that. Might want to add a zero and a "K"
Updated Updated Odds: Oregon 25%/Florida $25/UM 25%/ MSU 25%/Auburn $180,000/OSU free tattoos/Alabama 25% to be medical redshirted if he doesn't develop enough in 2 years/LSU Let 'er rip
You forgot the free cars . . . err, I mean test drives.
How can Sparty be an underdog when your odds are all even?
thanks for the info
Yeah, isn't 25% at MSU a B+?
"Let's play the role of the underdog while at the same time think we're great!" Oh, please stop. And by the way, closing your eyes really hard does not make you invisible.
We are the underdog, because in my previous ratings....don't you follow all of my posts :-).....MSU had only a 15% chance.
We are making a charge down the homestrech.
hide the couches.
What is, Because ratios are a 400-level math class at MSU?
I'll take foods that start with the letter Q for $200.
What is a quince?
I guess the going rate for OL is a lot less than the Cam Newton's of the world. Will that even be enough to cover his bus fare home?
Awesomely descriptive thread title.
And yet you still clicked on it....
Heck, I even click on the dupes. I guess I can't resist the fireworks.
Here I am, thinking Jeff FIsher is going to be the DB coach
Funk's trip up to TC was just OK.....
I think the title of this thread is the most informative.
Seriously though, doesn't anyone read the FAQ?
I like Planters better.
I hardly know 'er.
todays Michigan vs tsio womens swim meet?
when i read your title i thought you were going to talk about Steve Fisher's success at SDSU - a little more detail when starting a thread would be nice
After he has either his in-home with the new staff, or he comes down to AA (he said he would do one or the other before signing day) he will remember why he committed to Michigan in the first place. After he meets Brady "catchphrase" Hoke and talks with the rest of the Brady Bunch, he'll realize the passion and talent of this coaching staff as well as the fact that Michigan is still Michigan.
I also used to live in TC and know Fisher and he is a Michigan man. I agree that he is probably just taking the opportunity to visit oregon and florida because he can. I would if i were him. He is just keeping his options open and weighing everything out. I truly believe that if he stays in Michigan for college, he wont be going to MSU.
Does 96.1 still broadcast from high atop the Fisher Building?
unusual. The kid is just saying hey you need to show me that you want me in this class. Your staff needs to re recruit me and I need to get to know you the head coach and my posistion coach. It's very commonly employed tactic that kids use to make sure they are not wanted/needed as well as establishing a new relationship. He's probably still Michigans to lose IMHO
I thought Fisher Price was about to unveil a new product.....sadly when I clicked on the post all I found was useless analysis. :'(
Required material for MSU's Ratios 403 class:(recommended for econ 315 also)
Good luck with the weekend visits and get us some (more) talent. GO BLUE!!!!
This is the first time, with rare exceptions, MSU hasn't had all the positive press in football since Carr retired. The Hoke thing and the way he is moving the chess pieces has rendered MSU mostly forgotten by non-Lansing MSM. For right now anyways. It feels good even if it doesn't mean anything tangible.
It is a shrewd move by Dantonio to stay after Fisher even if his odds are slim. If he gets him, he gets a great player. If he doesn't, but perception is that he nearly grabbed a solid Michigan guy after Hoke took over, he reasserts the initiative and looks more the aggressor. Remember, "owning" Michigan has been his hope card for State fan. As much as I dislike the guy, I admire how he has kept us back on our heels for most of his time running that program.
He has a cooperative media and he projects a great image for his fanbase. He has nothing to lose by keeping the pressure on with this guy.
Hope Fisher goes Blue because he is well regarded. We need his size.
...that had nothing to do with Hoke or U of M: Lawrence Thomas, the kid that MSU had been staking its whole idea of "We are Dominating In-State Recruiting" just lost his 5th star on Rivals. That decision drops him down to the same ranking as Justice Hayes and Brennan Beyer, and considering that the rest of MSU's recruiting class outside of Thomas is actually worse than ours (albeit larger), this doesn't look as good for "MSU's Hammerlock recruiting".
