That staff has been openly negative since RR came in late and went after some of there verbals. Then went after some again his second class. We need to be able to say scoreboard again...
RR says one BT school neg recruits
As much as we hate OSU, I can't remember the sweater vest every saying anything that was not above board. In victory and defeat, he is always a gentleman, and he takes his share of shit from the not so fine citizens of the state whose name I refuse to speak. Ditto for Joe Pa...he's a legend and deservedly so.
MSU or Purdue? Not a stretch for either school to be negative. Remember that little Purdue thing at mid-field? Dantonio, the warden, ha. Nothing would surprise me.
Not a bad day, not bad at all.
Circumstantial evidence suggests Purdue, but it sure seems like it'd be in Dantonio's character to do it. Did we go head-to-head against Purdue for anyone this year? If not, I'm looking up the road.
But my first thought was Purdue, too. The reasons given for MSU have made it about 50/50 now, though.
While I don't think it's Bielema, I'm surprised no one has blamed the meathead. I don't think it's PSU, OSU, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Northwestern. I'm inclined to not believe that Brewster would do it.
That leaves Purdue with a new coach who was spurned by Michigan or the team that feels it must prove it's better than Michigan in everything. I think Dantonio is better than that despite his second chance giving, and we've already seen what Hope does in post game.
Granted, it could be individual position coaches/coordinators who are doing the negative recruiting, so it could be anyone's guess.
It is MSU for sure. RR has alluded to this a few times.
Iowa or Indiana, because they're the only two teams that haven't been brought up as possibilities yet.
Dantonio's time is coming.
It's got to be State. While I could definitely see it being Hope and his hatred for us I don't think that we really recruit against them that much. Plus Dantonio definitely hates us more.
there is only one team? That could be the dumbest statement I have heard all recruiting cycle.
there's one team that stands out among the big 10 teams, according to RR.
I don't think Dantonio could avoid saying nasty things about Michigan if he tried. I think he has anti-Michigan Tourette's or something.
But Brian pointed out on the radio this morning, we really didn't go head to head with them for any recruits this year. And Rich eliminated OSU. So he thought MSU (seems easy enough) and Minnesota (which a lot of people here discount). I find the PSU assistants thing intriguing too.
on Michigan's part. Roundtree certainly stepped up his game last year - due to his own story. RR was visibly upset in the post game presser - post handshake incident. It bothered him then and I think still bothers him deep down. RR is throwing down the gaunlet. It's Purdue in my opinion - even without the target crossover this recruiting year.
In the end - I don't think it did any/much harm.
