at least it's not just us?
Lawrence Marshall's top 5
Where did you find this??
He also announced this on recruiting roundup this morning.
...with Sam Webb on the Michigan Insider's Recruiting Roundup, Marshall said Michigan is in the top 5 because of Mattison and his NFL experience and experience coaching players who made it to the NFL. He also said that MSU is in there because of Dantonio. Called him a stand up guy or somesuch. As noted below, he explicitly said that Ohio is no longer being considered. Said his decision could come soon, then said he plans another visit to U-M. Can't recall if it was this weekend or next, but the juxtaposition of those two comments and his decision to come on WTKA was interesting.
Interesting that he has USC/ND in his top 5 because I'm not sure they have even offered. OU is interesting because that is obviously where our old DL coach now works.
They noted his lack of USC offer, so yeah he doesn't have one at this time.
....that OU made the list because of Jerry Montgomery.
He seems to be MSU's to lose at this point, although over in RCMB they seem to think that if USC offers he'll be theirs
Coach Brown mentions the absence of Ohio State (thanks to spartanfan123 below for the correction there). I like this. I am sure Meyer was never really interested anyway despite the brief commitment - it only makes sense somehow.

It's probably because real recognize real.
Real recognize real? Marshall committed to Ohio State and then decommitted a couple days later. Neither party is "real."
Well.. no not really. Coach Brown tweeted that, Marshall just retweeted it. Here's Marshall's original tweet.
have never heard of anything crazier than a top recruit wanting to go to msu over Meeechigan.
You need to get out more.
Well, more like stay in more really. Those of us who know he's wrong are the ones who probably need to get out more.
Aaron burbridge says hello
if memory serves, Burbridge wanted to come to Michigan, but we weren't sure his grades would qualify and didn't offer. UM raided his high school (Harrison) that year, which had typically been an MSU pipeline, taking Funchess and Ojemudia.
Okay...Tom gholson and Lawrence Thomas
Exactly. Michigan obviously out-recruits MSU for guys both teams want, but MSU takes one or more every year. We wanted Reschke, at least one of the Bulloughs, DeAnthony Arnett (though I'm not sure how much that really counts). In fact, a good chunk of their 2010 class had Michigan offers.
I think he was interested in checking out Michigan but there were some grade concerns so we didn't really reciprocate for a while. When we finally did, he was pretty set on State
overt nature of the sarcasm-laden post I felt the s/ notation was unnecessary for the intelligent reader. My supposition has proven true. Perhaps, you should spend less energy being snarky, negative and condescending, potentially rendering you more able to recognize real sarcasm.
You probably want to save the energy you are now expending on insults to use in learning how to use sarcasm successfully.
Your "sarcasm" was a fail, Magnus's response was mild, and this post by you is way emo.
lived in a vacuum. It is not. My response was a result of continuously reading Magnus' negative, pompass blather. You may not recognize real as one of those magnus apologist/groupies. For future reference, note the proper use of the apostrophe.
Actually, the correct way would be "Magnus's" since "Magnus" is not plural. You only omit the s when making a plural word possesive.
"The fans' opinions often differ from Magnus's."
Boy, I can honestly say I've never been called "pompass" prior to now.
I think we're all going to learn a lot from you.
The way I pronounce that word in my head, it sounds like a compliment.
I like reading your posts Magnus. They're informative and seem more realistic than negative to me.
His posts are pompasstic!
State shirt fitting these days? Buy some tampons man.
Just another example of Dantonio recruiting at a high level and stealing recruits for Michigan, Ohio, ND and USC.
All that inter-galactic recruiting is paying big dividends for Dantonio.
That joke is getting old
I still find it funny
Just adding my 2 cents.
Are worthless. Very funny and very appropriate. If that dumbshit in E.L thinks he can compete with Michigan then all jokes on him.
First ND or USC would have to offer the kid, btw what is dantonio's record vs Michigan? it makes the situation worse if the man keeps winning with less talent
Why are you on a MICHIGAN WOLVERINES board again?
So I am less of a Michigan fan for speaking the truth?
Were a fan at all. I (being faithful blue) never go around telling fellow wolverines how well State is doing and how well they are recruiting. I would be told off, then kicked square in the nuts. That's just how I roll I guess.
I said they were recruiting well?? hmm news to me, but thanks for letting me know what I said. Are you threatening me? or saying you like to kick yourself in the nuts? I'm lost, either way lol
Tell this^ gentleman MSU's blog so he can entertain them please. Thank you.
I'm sorry, for now on I'll pretend with you
I'm not trying to bust your balls all night, but come on man. Get with it. This is a WOLVERINES blog. My downfall I guess is that I love this team so much I rather not hear all the negatives against them. I should respect your team for who they are and leave it at that. At least they get acknowledged for being in the shadows. Central, Western and Eastern don't. Feel privileged. Go Blue!!
That kind of is a downfall though. You can be a fan and still be able to speak objectively. This is not one of those dur hur Michigan rulez everything blogs. We're able to mention how Dantonio has won against us without our fandom being questioned. If you love the team so much, you should be able to hear the negatives and not get all upset about it because you know there are so many positives to outweigh them.
You gotta rep the 616 better than that.
