Kalis officially decommits from OSU
I haz it.
EDIT: It just wasn't the same without a picture.
Commence (continue?) wild speculation about this weekend.
this is the most perfect response yet to the tsio meltdown
Mondays headlines will hopefully be Kalis goes blue
Wow this is going to get very interesting. Not only will his recruitment become intense, but you have to wonder what kind of effect this will have on Dunn and even other big time recruits that seemed to waiver a bit. Does anyone know who he will be considering and how important being close to home is? I am trying to get a hold of my friends who follow recruiting since i know nothing on my own.
Buckeye meltdown in progress!! Cuts like a knife!!
Ohh but it feels so right!!
nah nah nahhhh nah nah nahhh nah nahhhhh nah nah nahhh nah nahhhhh
I can't say much about anything with him because I think it's sensitive. I will say that this is something to keep an eye on. Definite interest in Michigan.
No recruiting thread is complete without cryptic TomVH!
if he'll be our starting Left Guard, Right Guard, or Center right? Or does he plan on getting that surgery during the offseason to make his arms 1' longer so he can play Left Tackle?
Six to midnight? Oh yeah.
I hate John Mellencamp.
some of the Ohio State boards and they now say that they never wanted him. Hope he goes BLUE!! Best of luck to him!!
which tsio blog site is saying this?
Fuck them, They'll disagree in 4 years after we kick their ass 4 years in a row and Kalis is driving their D-Line back 10 yards downfield.
There's some pretty impressive whining going down at 11W as we speak.
It's his choice to do whatever he wants, but I think this speaks volumes about someones character, you promise someone that you're wholeheartedly in, and then you withdraw. Kind of shows that you for a lack of better terms have no balls.
Yea, I'm sure this tough guy would say that to a 6'5 302lb athlete in person.
This is so true. It's why they didn't want Boren to come play for them. They are, if nothing else, at least not hypocrites.
when they coach a Big 10 football team in Ohio and to entice an 18 year old kid to play for them, they tell the kid that their school has a certain set of morals and values, but then it turns out that coach has been lying to his superiors, the press and the team and actually there's a whole other set of values and morals going on.
I also think it speaks volumes about an 18 year old kid who wouldn't want to be associated with such a program.
They're talking about someone's CHARACTER down there????? HA.
lol, i love this, i'm sorry I'm gonna steal it ....
No problem man, as the kitten does not belong to me, I shall allow it
It's actually my cat... Name is fluffy.
5 star recruit who is in the top 5 at his position from the state of Ohio and the fans say they never wanted him? Has hell frozen over? I don't see any pigs flying, so I can't believe them.
Me likes. I like it a lot.
he is a Buckeye through and through, i think he will look around at other schools, like michigan and penn state, but he wants to be a Buckeye. I believe we could have ourselves a commitment from Kyle Kalis this weekend
But didn't they say the same thing about Kalis a number of weeks ago?
If this was in response to what i said I agree with you in the fact that Dunn will be a tough pull no matter what. However we both know this will create even more talk about getting Dunn. I will add that I have talked to a few of my recruiting guru friends who have heard and believe Michigan will be hard to beat for Kalis. I liked that Tom gave an encouraging cryptic post as well. I would love for you to be right, and that it happens this weekend.
Wow sounds like there are some reliable sources saying Dunn is expected to de-commit soon as well. Wow is all I can say!
Hoke is about to reach across the table in the middle of dinner, grab a commit right off O$U's plate and then excuse himself for a golden bowel movement!
I concur. Hoke Is about to take a shit on tat school from Ohio's dinner plate.
It's a full time jack move! Wonder if this will be the *one* "major" decommit that starts a mini-stampede away from tOSU, or gives pause to most others strongly considering them in spite of their impending screwing.
Remember when Dreisbach1817 was told he was the grim reaper? Yeah, not anymore. This is really good news if only because he's got a definite interest in Michigan. I'm going to temper my excitement until he commits to us or somewhere that is not OSU though.
At least Ohio isn't really "national", so we don't have to worry about MSU. That's a weight off my shoulders.
I think Sparty would insist it is considering 5 of their 6 commits are from the state of Ohio. Too bad Kalis isn't even considering Sparty.
I almost want to look at OSU boards to see the massive freakout. For now, I will restrain.
At the Dispatch website for the hell of it. The posters there are too busy in-fighting to notice that Kalis is getting out of dodge. Very strange phenomenon. I think it hurts so bad that they're turning on each other, questioning others' "love" of and "loyalty" to the school.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually feel a little bad for (some) OSU fans. They aren't the ones who cheated, and it has to be devastating to find out -- in a matter of months -- that your beloved team's successes are tainted and its future looks horribly grim. It makes me even angrier with Tressel, Gene Smith, and the rest of those d-bags for what they've done to college football.
I can't beleive you're saying that either
