Saw this story and figured I would post it. Not very long or informative, but worth a quick read.
How Roy Roundtree Changed Signing Day
It really isnt that good of a read. Mostly its about a Purdue fan who still isnt over that Rich managed to steal Roundtree from them and how he cant stop thinking others from Purdues class will do the same. Nothing really to see or read
“It's scary to see how many other schools are boasting that all their targets are signed, sealed, and delivered while Purdue waits for a bunch more.”
It’s not scary it’s that there most likely not Pur-don’t!
the terms "wizard hat" and "snake oil" would not be in our recruiting lexicon. While the photoshop picture with Richrod holding a bottle of snakeoil wearing the wizard hat never fails to make me chuckle, the overuse of the terms is a bit tiresome.
Soooo glad I'm not a Purdue fan...
has a two game winning streak against us...ugh.
True, but it seems like losing Roundtree rocked them to the core, more than any measly win streak can even hope to do.
This article is nothing but a steam of consciousness whine festival with no substance. Something better suited for someone's twitter. In short, the reason no one takes b/r seriously. For every good article on the site, there's 75 morons pissing and moaning about how life isn't fair.
Yikes - because no commit ever switched to another school at signing day before Roy Roundtree. Wa wa waaaa Purdue fan.
What a useless piece of garbage.
Not sure what he's complaining about. Purdue is 2-0 against us since we "stole" Roundtree. I would think they would make that trade every time.
Danny Hope openly hates RR, Purdue fans are still mad about Roundtree. They are my #1 candidate.
or Saint Dantonio.
That seriously was one of the best articles based on fatcs that i have read in awhile. Someone should let Drew Sharp know about this so he can read it himself and maybe learn a thing or two about writting with facts not out of your Arse...
...if it was titled, "How Richard Roundtree changed signing day by 'Shafting' Purdue."
Since it wasn't, I'll take my entertainment from this quote:
"It's horrible to log on to my favorite message board and see a post saying "so-and-so switches to Michigan"...only to find out it's a joke from somebody with a cruel, twisted mind."
It would almost be worth having an identity on their message boards around signing day next year just to post that one of their best prospects switched to Michigan. Normally, I wouldn't pick on such a bottom-feeder, but Danny Hope choosing to "rub it in" last season has changed my opinion of Purdue a bit.
It was also a lot of fun to vote "bottom three" in their recruiting class poll.
class looks like and I still voted "bottom three" based on the "rub it in" incident.
You're in good company. Rich Rodriguez and Michigan just stole a top recruit away from Urban Meyer and Florida...
offer for taking other visits when they had other top talent in the queue.
Not to mention getting JeRon Stokes from Tennessee the year before.
The one thing that you can't say about Rodriguez is that he doesnt finish strong on signing day.
Are they still in the Big Ten?
Yeah they beat us...
