Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Kalis interview about why he decommitted from Ohio
Your title scared me change it to decommited from Ohio.
Fixed, sorry about that.
no means no unless you talking about going to Ohio then in that case... HELL NO!
How many times a day do you think Meyer has been calling him? Isn't this the second time Kalis has had to tell Meyer to back off?
Even so. I know that good recruiters recruit hard, but when a kid says, "Under no circumstances am I interested in your school. Go Away", you'd think that they'd leave him alone.
Urban Meyer, meet Kyle Kalis' resolve...
“Hell hath fury a woman, err I mean Urban Meyer scorned”
"Hell hath NO fury like a woman, err I mean Urban Meyer, scorned"
Tried to keep selling Kalis the "god" pitch each and every time they talked.
I can tell all these assholes here in columbus too shut the hell up!!!!!!! Hes going blue and thats that
Love this article and Kalis. Love our recruits attitudes towards Ohio.
This kid has been a Godsend. I can't wait for him to start wreaking havoc on the OL.
"The cooler poop? Yeah, I can't lie, the cooler poop was a big factor."
He has bold faced lied big time to kids about sanctions. ESPN of course will not bring that up.
I hope this kills all the fake rumors out there - he's blue!
"My family and I talked about it," he said. "My dad wanted to prepare me for the backlash and the repercussions of my choice."
His family sounds like rational Ohio State fans who communicated well with their son. Seeing this strength in families makes me proud and happy.
Ohio is the guy at the bar who wants to show you how awesome he is by telling you what a d*ck you are for not believing how awesome he is.
I am very excited that we'll have Kalis on our O-line. You made the right decision, Kyle.
Immature and impulsive. That sounds about right for lots of OSU players...and coaches...and administrators.
I'm glad he got over that phase.
Yeah, stay classy Auburn.
"he gone learn what a bad choose he made."
Gadsden State Community College (per the guy's comment) does a wonderful job emphasizing the importance of clear and concise communication.
Yeah, awesome showing by Auburn fans. One of them does issue a sharp remprimand, however....
'Don't be a dutch man, he is a kid.'
I am sure he means no offense to Americans whose ancestors hail from the ol' Koninkrijk der Nederlanden.
As a Dutch descendant, may I ask, what the hell is that supposed to mean???
I believe it means, "wooden shoes." When the Dutch are involved, always assume it has something to do with wooden shoes...
"There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's culture and the Dutch."
Great taste in Beer. One of my favorites!
If you like Two Hearted try Dogfishhead 60 minute IPA. I've never done a blind taste test between the two but I suspect that I may actually prefer the 60 minute. Can't go wrong with either though.
Not sure if serious, but I believe the word he was looking for was "douche". Unfortunately he offended all of Western Michigan instead.
One guy used ya'll 8 times in his post. Actually it was YALL because the whole thing was an ALL CAPS RAGE.
I still don't trust this, until he signs that dotted line I will be nervous. I don't trust Meyer and his mischievous ways.
This is why I dont follow recruiting until signing day. I never get let down.
But you'e in a Kalis thread? Wah?
Urban Meyer's recruiting strategy apparently involves mimicking the behavior of a bipolar ex-girlfriend. Which can be understandably exciting in the short term, but it kind of sucks when she decides to burn your house down.
He is the man! Everyone on the line of scrimmage wants to play for hoke. Thats their answer, when asked.
the fax machines light off, but I want to see Kalis at Michigan.
I think Meyer could be compared to e-mail spammers. Detestable, but very effective when the cost:benefit ratio is considered. For every several hits/pings/whatever with supposedly committed recruits, he probably gets a handful of wins.
Is that the next logical fork in the path for tgot (formerly tsio)?
This isn't really consistent with this thread but I thought this article may be of interest to many posters here. If someone deems it appropriate to share, go right ahead. If not, that's fine too.
That's gotta blow. That was his childhood favorite and now he's being harassed by them. Even though we know they are the bad guys, this couldn't have been easy. Getting to Ann Arbor will be especially good for him, since at least he won't have to hear their garbage (at least not in person anyway).
Welcome to the new world, Kyle...
When Chrome translates the title of this article to Spanish, it says "Kalis interview about why he liberated himself from Ohio". Even Google knows...
about Kalis visiting TSIO. Of course, they were probably started by disgruntled, childish OSU fans.
Sounds like Meyer often crosses the line between being a hard recruiter and being an obnoxious dick. I can't see any other reason to keep calling a recruit who has told him emphatically that he's not interested.
in a few years?
