I like that part where the guy says "he must not like jewelry", apparently he forgot that Michigan usually wins more Big Ten championships in once decade than they do in a quarter of a century. ahahahah, this is a good day, Go Verlander!
RCBM Mario Commit Thread
Is that considered a confession to recruiting violations?
Yet another reason why I like MGoBlog...no emoticons.
Yet another reason why I like MGoBlog...no emoticons.
Just lots of pictures of cats saying stupid crap, people saying "derp" and the like. This board, unfortunately, has become increasingly RCMBish as time has passed.
I literally laughed out loud. Both because you integrated cat and DERP, and also because that cat looks absolutely ridiculous. Well done, sir.
relax guy...there has been an increase in cats saying derp but it's not limiting the board so much...
There is lots of delusion on that board. I was surprised to actually find some rational posters
I thought the same thing.
To tell them that the 220 lb DE is not going to start next year no matter how bad the defense is. That MSU just lost a kid plain and simple.
Looks like sparty's are ready to eat eachother
i was surprised to find some rational posters...but damn there are a lot of delusional posters. we have idiots on mgoblog, but the general sentiment when we lose a recruit is "damn, good luck elsewhere" not "what a loser, wants early playing time, scared of competition, etc..."
the irony is...if you look back at prior threads on Ojemudia and the trio Sparty fans are all over the kid with praise. I agree, as much as there are some less effective posters on MGoBlog it really isn't tolerated to crap on a kid who makes a different choice with his education (see Pike, Zeke for a more recent example).
Stay classy Sparty.
Right. We don't crap on the kid, we crap on the school he chose. (see: Auburn pay to play)
The best players out there. We just won 11 games this year. Things are really opening up for us on the recruiting front. You can see it in our offer list. MSU has offers currently out to uncommitted recruits from 16 different states plus the District of Columbia NOT named the state of Michigan. That's the widest net Dantonio has cast for recruits since returning to MSU. This says we are becoming more of a player nationally and shouldn't restrict ourselves simply to in-state recruiting.
Things are really opening up because they're offering guys from a bunch of states. That's how it works, right? You show you're a player nationally just by offering kids?
So can my personal college be considered "opening up and national" because I asked DGB and Pike to play for me?
I'd think about it...
wow...not to dound like a dick, but some people should know their place.
I thought that as well. Hey whatever they have to tell themselves to get to sleep at night is fine by me. They all scared Hoke is going to convince their own kids to go to Michigan. I love it.
RR recruits nationally and doesn't pull in-state kids = doesn't care about the state, pissing coaches off
Dantonio recruits nationally and doesn't pull in-state kids = success, winning, go right through for MSU
The reason Marky D put his net out so wide is because for one he lost his 2 best recruiters this part year and so far it is showing greatly.
Enos and Treadwell both did very well in Michigan for Dantonio. Now with his horrible personaility and the fact that Hoke's love for Michigan is so obvious and his personaility is more than enough for these kids to commit to michigan.
Before RR if you really look at it prior to the 2 morons taking over at SouthEastern and Ren the only feeder school for MSU was FHH and now so far they are 0 for 2 and could possibly go 0 for 3.
Tis it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine today.
Mark D. could have God recruiting for him instead of Enos and Treadwell and he'd lose out on the recruits because, bluntly, Michigan is a better school with national run. Sparty is a local deal that once every quarter century wins a title...thus the legend of George Perles who was otherwise Bo's bitch for years.
is saying these kids are getting away because Dantonio was too busy coaching spring practice...
three "VERY good" recruits last week.
I'm pretty sure it was because he was too busy disciplining his team for felonies.
Our coaching staff is getting their asses handed to them by Michigan. Completely unacceptable.
Green Meatball said...
The fact that you post on this board is just sad really. You can try and rationalize it any way you'd like to save face but it really is sad.
We are reigning Big Ten [co-]Champs, and you have "stolen" your 4th or 5th choice as head coach. Let me just say this, there is nothing as satisfying as sitting next to a Taylor-tucky walmart wolverine as we played down to UofM's level ut still captured an easy win in AA. Those that stay will be beaten by Michigan State/
[response]I don't rationalize it at all, I just like this place.
because we're going to beat them this year.
And the next.
And the next.
Ever was it thus.
There is actually a thread over there entitled "Should Dantonio be on a short leash?"
I feel like I just wasted five minutes of my life reading that blog.
"you guys are making our fanbase look pathetic"
Haha, they found out
I start breathing through my mouth
Looks like the rattlesnakes are starting to committ suicide in EL, that's funny.
Did you see that our team has been hurt by nutrition? Our DB depth is shaky because we're either feeding these guys too much or too litlle. We should investigate which is the cause immediately.
"...you should re-examine those star rankings after nutrition, a lot of those guys never even played a game for Michigan."
I laughed like a school girl when I read that.
Campbell might be the only guy who hasn't played much due to nutrition.
I know attrition and nutrition sound the same but come on. Nutrition is like a 3rd grade spelling word. Getting these two confused is befuddling to me.
The most underrated post on that thread was the response saying how the chocolate milk didn't work out too well for us.
I know it was most likely a typo, but don't you think you should be a little less critical when you misspelled "little" above?
Dude it was a typo. I hit the same letter twice. It's not close to not knowing the definition of the word nutrition.
I love how they try to convince themselves that their defense is just too good and that the kid wants early playing time, No chance in hell it could be anything else, right? I mean, their defense is just too damn good to recruit players right now.
Red Cedar Ballistic Missile?
Is that what they call it when their board melts down?
I thought it was Red Cedar Bowel Movement, which would be both gross and appropos.
All the insults towards Michigan I found hilarious but I was somehow offended by this comment.
"They have the resources, tradition, intangibles (stupid helmets, big craphole stadium, etc, etc) to sell kids."
Don't talk shit about about the winged helmet or the Big House.
Yes, because the ever-changing Sparty uniforms/helmets are "snazzy." And yes, the newly renovated Big House is a total dump compared to Spartan Stadium...
Goog ol' State inferiority complex. The Sparty sitting next to me at the MSU game last fall spent a good 20 minutes before the game raving to his Sparty girlfriend about how Michigan Stadium was the most incredible sports venue he had ever seen.
All this coming from a fanbase that can't even show up and fill their shithole during a B1G title run. When you have to have a buy one, get one ticket deal, you know you are second tier.....
My favorite thing is that it seems to be a consensus opinion that they are going to beat us again this year.
they sound a lot like Iowa fans before last year, and I think they're in a pretty similar situation.
No doubt about it. Greg Jones isn't going to replace himself, and neither are the guys they lost in the secondary. I see one senior starter on their defensive depth chart. http://michiganstate.rivals.com/cdepthtext.asp
No one seems to mention this, but unless I'm mistaken they're losing a big chunk of their O-Line, too. Cousins and their RBs are good, but without a solid OL in front, that offense is probably not going to be the consistent attack everyone seems to assume it will be.
one guy says "Shove it up your dickhole" in response to someone saying Hoke is good at recruiting
End dickhole violence now.
The day has been salvaged for Sparty! They got a commitment from 2 star TE Evan Jones!
Cue the excitement from the Sparty two star mafia.
is happy because they got a commit from a 2 star TE
EDIT - damn got beat
Hey I know that this is unrelated but I do not have enough points to make a post on the MGoBoard, and figured some people might be interested. ESPN insider Chad Ford has Darius Morris going in the first round at pick #23 to the Houston Rockets.
"Analysis: The Rockets got a career year out of Kyle Lowry, but is he the long-term answer at the point? I think they'd have to take a hard look at Morris if he's here.
He's different than Lowry. He is bigger and really sees the floor well. His lack of elite quickness and shooting ability hurts his stock a bit -- but some scouts compare him to a young Andre Miller. "" "
Feel free to post. I'm sad to see Darius leave, but at the same time it is exciting to know that Michigan basketball is once again capable of producing NBA talent consistently.
I mean, is it scUM, SCum, SCUM, or scum? Let's have some consistency.
sCuM I believe...
i like that theyve already started using 'cHoke' despite the fact that he is 0-0
Hoke is winless?! That's it, UM has lost the state of Michigan to MSU. It's official, UM football is done. Shut it down. Shut down everything.
It took six pages before someone said:
i have no doubt that Mattison is telling all of these kids that they will have a good chance at immediate playing time and if they commit to michigan, he will get them to the NFL.
If we beat them this year, I think several Sparties might be on death watch. They're already turning on each other.
THEY JUST WANTED EARLY PLAYING TIME AND ARE AFRAID OF COMPETITION NOTHING TO SEE HERE MSU IS STILL AWESOME
They're just being selective goddamnyou!
"MSU is coming off an 11-2 season and a share of the Big Ten championship. That should allow the Spartans to be very selective about whom they offer. U-M is in a rebuilding stage and new coach Brady Hoke is being aggressive and stirring early interest." - Matt Dorsey, SpartanMag.com
A few things:
They've offered 7 of our 10 commits.
They took a 2-star TE today. We already have two that are more highly rated, along with a UM lean that is also highly rated.
We have not offered any of their commits.
That's selectivity for you.
Their depth is such that they don't really even need to recruit. Except for 2/3 stars. B/c who else would sign up? You understand... You HAVE to recruit shitty guys when you're a good football team.
Calling a 17-18 year old kid who's probably over the moon that he picked a school "shitty" is pretty pathetic, even in context of a rivals recruiting class.
You make a valid point, but I was making an argument: it's silly to say your team is so good/deep that no high level recruits want to play for it. If it offends your sensibilities, allow me to cyber-retro-ly replace "shitty" in the above with "low rated".
Wow, dude used a lot of words to make his "point' lol
Damn, that sounds like some pitch for an HBO mini series, or maybe a Michael Moore movie.
I laughed so hard reading that.
Sparty.... no. :(
Greg Mattison's new ride...courtesy Domino's
Yeah even people on their board called him crazy. I was honestly laughing a few sentences in to that. The whole board was funny though, the second someone would make an argument that was fairly reasonable such as "lets not freak out yet it's only May" it would be followed by 4 or 5 irrational posts showing what shitty fans they are such as "we are finished its the end of the world" "is this the end of our run. serious question" OR the completely opposite kool-aid drinkers saying "They must want early playing time" , "We are only recruiting nationally now" (HAHAHAHA) or "Its because Dantonio had to coach spring practice". For those who haven't read it yet its hilarious. Really shows that although all fans, us included, blow things out of proportion sometimes, MSU fans are freaking out to the extreme right now. I wish Dantonio would comment on the situation I would love to hear his spin on it all.
Calling it now though, if Burbridge goes blue, put half of their posters on suicide watch!
The best line I've seen there - not in this post, but when Hoke first started to bring in the big-name kids - was "you gotta work for that Spartan offer." Unless we are talking about a gentleman's club and trying to get back to the champagne room, nobody should ever have to "work" for an MSU offer.
If you haven't put your time in paying your dues on the chain gang, there is no scholarship for you.
To sum up some threads:
1) Sparty is offering athletes outside of Michigan for the first time in years.
2) Sparty is being very very selective.
Why, then, should they worry? Surely the BRAHS can just drink some brewskis and watch 300 for the eleventh time this month.....
is that it isn't just enough to GET recruits from outside the midwest to be "national." Everyone recruits from far away. CMU got players from Florida and California last year. Eastern got SEVERAL players from California. Western landed players from Florida, Virginia, and Tennessee. And just to throw a random in there, Ohio got players from Kansas, Nebraska, Washington, and Georgia. So yeah....
As a sidenote, RCMB is probably one of the top 5 least classy places on the internet.This is shown by the thread titled: "OT: Did your wife get bustier after marriage?"
To be fair, it was a joke. Much in the same way we had a thread here "Gay for Denard".
Someone posted earlier "Did your life get busier after marriage" and a few commentors joked that they first read it as "Did your wife get bustier after marriage". So it looks like someone went ahead and started that thread to carry on the joke.
Whoops, I didn't catch that. I saw the joke one and then went back and only found the real one thinking it was edited or something. That's surprisingly clever and funny.
of all time from a spartan fan, was the guy who emailed adam rittenburg saying michgain state is "Linebacker U"
The meltdown over there would be amazing if the team walks out of EL with a win. I would seriously sit in front of a computer that night to watch the fireworks.
Want to think what that board would be like if burbridge commited to michigan.
A few of them are already boarding suicide, I can't even imagine if we got Burbridge. He needs to get his grades up so he can actually have a realistic shot at going to UofM. If we get Dwayne Stanford I'd be just as happy though, since he is also a 4-star and probably still very dissapointing for Sparty!
They apparently like to put a lowercase "c" in front of Hoke's last name. "cHoke," get it!?!? They are more clever than Michio Kaku, Lionel Messi, and Cornel West combined.
anybody who uses terms like "scUM", "Meatchicken", "DickRod", or "cHoke" (or any variation of these), isn't all that clever or intelligent at all.
"Meatchicken?" I've never seen that one before. I don't get it. I mean, I get that it's a take on Ufer's "Meeechigan," but other than that, it doesn't really make sense. Aren't chickens supposed to have meat? Wouldn't a "meat chicken" be a good and useful thing?
I was having so much fun reading the comments I couldn't stop, this one was the most MSU-like: "...you should re-examine those star rankings after nutrition, a lot of those guys never even played a game for Michigan"
No doubt. What a bunch of fuckcunts over there.
This is all part of the Spartan master plan. Coach Dantonio is allowing Michigan to hammer him instate. By doing this, it frees him up to concentrate on the bigger picture... MSU's national brand.
By cleverly surrendering the state, it frees up scholarships. Now Coach Dantonio, can recruit high profile kids from the rest of the country. While Michigan is recruiting slow mid-western kids... the Spartans will be getting 4 and 5 stars from around the globe.
What a plan by Coach D... allow Michigan to win meaningless instate recruiting battles, only to destroy the Wolverines nationally. Very shrewd, it's almost Sun Tzu like.
Coach Dantonio is working on a 'pipeline' to Pahokee.
as translated by the Three Stooges:
MOE "Listen here you cabbage heads! those scUMbags just stole our dates!"
CURLY "She prolly left cause she ain't as pretty as my current squeeze, Nyuck Nyuck"
LARRRY "HEY! keep your hands off me you big ape!" POW!
CURLY "Why I outta.... wvooo wvoo wvoo wvoo"
MOE "Shaddap ya morons!" SLAP! "We need to figure out what those scUM suckers told our girls to make'em wanna leave us like that"
LARRY "I think that guy's a doctor. The other one's dressed like a lawyer"
CURLY "YeeaH, and Romeo over there looks like the King of Arabia!"
LARRY "Perhaps the girls were simply impressed by their social status"
MOE "NONSENSE! We have social status! Why just last year we were promoted to the Tilt-A-Whirl, were'nt we? And you Larry, didn't you just win carney of the week for twelve straight weeks?"
LARRY "No, I dropped the ball in Iowa City remember?"
MOE "it doesn't matter. We don't need these girls. We could have our pick of any one of these high-falutin' dames! Watch this..." *bowing low to the nearest debutante* "Would you care to dance with a gentleman?"

MOE "Oh pardon me ma'am. I didn't realize I was talking to a fridgidaire. Sheeesh!"
LARRY "Nice goin' Casanova. but I think you have something in yer eye" POKE!
MOE "What's the big idea!" SMACK!
CURLY "DERP! DERP! DERP!"
I love how one guy said that Godin's announcement could be good news for MSU, ha they really are delusional
7 pages of bitching for one measly recruit? Don't they have something better to do on a Saturday night?
Edit: Now it's 8 pages. Suck it Sparty.
It isn't like MGoBlog; the more I read the more I realized these Sparties are classless. On this blog the blogerati would just have wished the recruit good luck and...moved the fcuk on.
Demetrius Hart. Glass houses and all that.
I mean that left a sour taste in most people's mouth because of the way it played out. MO hadn't committed anywhere yet.
Hart actually verballed to us though. That's the difference.
And he wasn't shy about saying that Rodriguez's lack of job security made him gun shy and that he wasn't interesting in sticking with Michigan if Rodriguez got the boot. It wasn't exactly a shocker when he decommitted.
This is very easy to explain. If MSU goes 1-11 but beats Michigan their season is considered a success. They aren't looking at this as they lost a recruit for 4 seasons, they simply see that we got better for 1 game a year and they didn't so that affects their chance of winning the "We are idiots, but at least we beat you at football this year bowl."
Notice they talk like they capped their big ten title off with a big bowl victory so they got snubbed in the rose bowl. They don't care that much that Alabama beat the piss out of them, they beat Michigan, and made a bowl game, HUGE SUCCESS in EL.
An 8 page topic about losing ONE recruit on the same day that Verlander throws a no-hitter. For them to concetrate so much on this throughout the day must really mean that things are getting bad over there...I must say I'm thoroughly enjoying the read though.
At only about 25 posts per page, and it's up to 10 pages now, even at 250 posts, that's big, but I'm guessing the Dee Hart not coming thread was pretty big too...and I think we had that one 3 times, as he bounced back and forth.
Ouch... That one still stings a lil.. I understand the reasoning but it still hurts. I do like the anxiety of the Sparty bloggers tho its nice to see for once....
How quickly we forget the Shawn Conway meltdown the board had...and we actually got him to commit.
Good god I know things get out of hand sometimes around here (normally after a loss) but thankfully we have much more intelligent posters who actual spell properly rather than coming up with nifty sayings (scUM, cHoke, etc etc).
I have a good friend that is a Sparty and as soon as he drops that shit on me I tell him to STFU and lets have an adult conversation about our sports teams and not resort to childish name calling.
I can't even read the comments at the Freep anymore. I tried for awhile, but good God they're full of idiots. There's so much "scUM" and "spartina" and "little brother / little sister" and "walverine", that it just makes you want to gouge your eyes out. Football isn't Harry Potter. You can say MSU, OSU, etc. They're not Voldemort. Clearly Mario Ojemudia is Voldemort, with that avada kedavra stare of his. /nerd.
My thing is, okay, even if they're "stacked at D" or whatever, eventually you're going to need kids from this year to step up and play. So sure, losing these recruits doesn't hurt you now. But in two years, when you would be playing them, and you're turning to the D-level recruits you snapped up at the last second, that's when things get ugly.
Wow just wow, I spent an hour reading through that shit. It is good to know that atleast a handfull of State fans know they are fucked.
One fo the posters called Hokeamania "cHoke". Hmm...guess he didn't watch the SDSU bowl game last year.
To be fair, neither did I.
I liek how they all are saying "I can;t believe our recruiting is going this way after being Big Ten Champs". Uhh, first off all, you shared it with a better team in OSU, a team you luckily didn't face. Then, you got your asses kicked by starters, back ups, and third stringers of Alabama. I'm pretty sure the kids remember that game.
Hopefully in a couple years we'll be back shooting our sites higher than beating Michigan State at football. This has been a hard time at the family get togethers, but ultimately necessary to rebuild things the right way.
I don't know why theyr'e so worried. The last two Spartan classes netted them two 5-star players in Gholston and LT2, at least one of whom is bound to end up at Ojemudia's preferred position. I don't know if that played into his decision -- honestly I think this was a straight-up "I think I'm gonna like it here" response to his visit and the coaching staff, and that being the right fit for him -- but if you're an MSU fan it's not like this is the end of the world.
If I had to guess I think Spartan fans in general (not all of them) tend to have an unreasonable understanding of their school's actual status. They win three in a row versus Michigan and can convince themselves the values of the programs have shifted, nevermind that they'd need more like three decades of dominance to displace the financial and numerical and historical advantages at Michigan.
To this sub-set, they saw a run of in-state talent wins over a few years, and thought that evidence of a great shift, rather than a blip mostly caused by two programs that swung their way, as characterized on the main page the last few weeks. The running meme of "RR doesn't care about the State of Michigan" was hard enough to de-convince casual Michigan fans of; I bet your average Spartan had faith in it as a point of fact. From our biased perspective, this is almost a given, but if you've been knee deep in the latest MSU group-think for the last three years, that Michigan can simply change coaches and reverse the perceived trend, even going so far as to turn a lifelong MSU fan at an MSU feeder blue, is jarring.
The more reasonable Spartans, particularly the few we've come to respect on these boards, are not acting like one commit changed the world. If I were in their shoes, I can't admit I'd be that gracious.
Well, I see the 10 page thread got deleted. Wonder what's going to happen if we get Burbridge too?...an A bomb might get dropped on that board
