Here's the conclusion of the conversation I had this morning with Kyle Kalis. I like the intensity he brings to the rivalry: Kyle Kalis
Kyle Kalis Conclusion
I hope you are getting paid! Your work is great.
Bucknuts are going crazy about how glad they are that they didn't get Kalis and his bad attitude. Ummm.....300lb guards with bad attitudes? Yes, please. Interestingly, they mentioned that Dunn was getting threats from Michigan fans. I never saw any comment approaching a threat from this board or the others I generally read.
Every fan base has a couple of crazies, Ohio just seems to have more. I really dont understand why Ohio fans follow Michigan recruits. They seem to enjoy antagonizing them, why. They dont seem to have anything better to do.
Exactly I couldn't tell you the name of any if their commits (other than Dunn obvious reasons). Why are they so interested in ours?
First of all, when people truly don't want a commit because of a bad attitude, it's not because they're saying that they want to rip someone's head off or smash their opponent or make them bleed. When people knock a recruit for having a bad attitude it's because he doesn't respect authority (his coaches, teachers, parents, etc.), is getting in fights, is getting into trouble, has a poor work ethic, that sort of thing.
I promise you no OSU fan would have a problem with their OL saying they're gonna play so hard they hurt the guy lining up across from him. Football players say that all the time. What did they expect him to say? That he plans to block averagely hard only until the whistle blows and then compliment his opponent on their effort?
Ohio fans would have pissed themselves with joy if he would have accepted St. Urban's offer to re-commit.
Any comment otherwise from them is complete bs.
someone else's bad attitude? Worst sports team fans in college football.
So much bacon
Sign him up!
I'm not surprised by some of the responses from Ohio fans, but of course if it was their commit talking about UM, they'd love it. All-in-all, he seems like a bright kid who's enjoying the process. I can easily see him becoming a leader on and off the field. His attitude reminds me of Lewan. I feel for Ohio's donkeys for the next 4 years. Actually, nah.
Your TREMENDOUS comment section got blown up by scorned exes. Kinda sad they would stoop that low.
I bet it was worth it just to get the comment that accused Kalis of "delusions of granger." That has to go in the MGoLexicon along with "for all intensive purposes" and "pre-madonna."
That comment cracked me up too. What does the small forward for the Pacers have to do with this situation?
Dunn is long forgotten I'm my eyes... If a recruit isnt all in for michigan in my eyes there as good as a 1* recruit
the only one that initially saw 'conclusion' as 'concussion'? I am? Ok, then nevermind...
I like Kalis even more now!
I'm actually impressed by the Ohio fans. They knew how to use computers...
"I TOLD YOU SON.... JOE BAUSERMAN AIN"T MY COUSIN"
I think this was said in the other thread, but I'm sad Molk won't be there for him, even for just a year. Molk would be invaluable on the field, but I think he'd actually give better tips for when it comes to interviews. One of my favorite characteristics of Molk was his ability to give a great interview. Kalis may be that next guy. In any event, I CAN'T WAIT for him to get on campus... like Bart Scott CAN'T WAIT
Lewan will take him under his considerable wing and tutor him further in the ways of the force. Wait...with the hatred being so strong....maybe we are the Sith? I'm cool with that.
That's so weird! I want him to be like Hutch and Al Faneca too! We have so much in common :) Faneca, Hutch, Kalis. *drools*
This class has a bunch of guys who have swagger-that perfect intersection of talent , confidence and high expectations mixed with a dash a humility necessary that they have to work hard to achieve their goals. Plus, kudos to Hoke and team for attracting that type of guy. Add in the media savvy of these guys-are there two guys better than Kalis and Pipkins?-this is going to be a fun ride
As a guy that grew up in Michigan and now lives in Chicago, I see Kalis a similar to a Bill Laimbeer or AJ Pierzynski type. The kind of guy that you love when he's on your team and can't stand when he's on the other team. Fiery, bit of an instigator, but guys that are all about winning. It'll be great to see him on the field.
A double post. Sorry!
Sounds like Kalis has been reaching out to those we still want to draw in!
a new segment on 97.1 The Fan's Buckeye Show - Neft ranted and raved for 15 minutes at the start of the show in the new "Just Keep Talking" segment on Wednesday, Jan. 18, about this interview (and ended up reading most of it on the air, sadly before The Game date got fixed). Neft shows off his idiocy (he's not sure aquaman's interview is legit, though - hah) in the recording (if it is still available) at http://www.971thefan.com/content/sections/podcasts/index.html
I gain sustenence from ohio tears...yes, they taste like bacon.
Really sounds like a great kid; here's hoping that among his oher gold-pooping skills, Hoke has a touch for culling quality young men like this out of the masses.
by an Ohio nincompoop.
Hes Tough..and to put up with all those threats from Olieo fans and stick it back in their faces proves hes PERFECT for UM..I think he might be my all time favorite recruit !
