keep the cass tech --> michigan pipe flowing.
TomVH: Terry Richardson Meeting with Michigan Tomorrow
Cass Tech will always be a pipeline if Wilcher's there. I'd like to see if Hoke and co. can get into some of MSU's feeder schools in the future (Farmington Hills, Renaissance, Southeastern, etc.).
I would put my money, and big money at that, on Hoke taking the top player from each of those MSU feeder schools, going forward, the first one being Burbridge the WR.
Let's get these kids an offer on the table ASAP which like Tom said would appear to be happening. After that it's dinner with Mattison followed by a verbal to Michigan.
is great news because this will give us that strong connection with the inner-city schools that RR never really got. if we get both of those players we will have 2 great players and start of recruiting on a great start
wtf, RR recruited Cass Tech just fine...
RR got multiple players from Cass (Hollowell, Campbell, Teric Jones, Thomas Gordon, Cissoko). Most of the instate pipelines go back to pre-RR.
is get the other inner city schools like renaissance
the school that had a guy steering recruits directly to East Lansing? I bet if you were a State fan you'd be bitching at Dantonio for not getting into Cass Tech.
Also, you say your excited because this will get is into the other inner-city schools that RR didn't get to? How so? We have already been into the school mentioned, so what difference will this make for Hoke that it didn't for RR.
Well I'd guess this meeting has no bearing on Renaissance..
And that .. that's all that matters.
Where is your foot right now? Oh, I found it, it's in your mouth.
RR recruited CT just fine. Take your whining elsewhere.
Back to TR, glad to see something is coming his way (whether offer or just a meeting).
because i said that this will mean that Hoke will get the connection that RR didn't have that means he had no connections with Cass tech. you should read instead of saying retarded stuff
you should read instead of saying retarded stuff
That's just funny. By the way, you should probably stop now.
of someone that the mainstream media turned against RR by getting you to believe a bunch of untrue BS
i am someone who hated RR after the pathetic 2009 second half collapse and i hate everything that has to do with RR. go ahead hate me for it but i couldnt stand the guy.
I don't hate you but I do dislike the misinformed posts you make. Do you even have the slightest idea what you are talking about or do you have a magic 8-ball that guides you along the way?
misinformed post? i barely post on here and when i do its usually about simple facts and everything becomes a big arguement because everyone on here seems to have an ego they need to up keep
This is not factual, RR never had that problem.
MGoBlog is proud to sponsor your one-way trip to Bolivia.
This thread is the poster child for why we need neg-bangs back. This fool deserves a trip to Bolivia if I ever saw one.
I don't buy it for a second that this guy is real. There is no way someone would believe the things he is writing. Hes just trolling.
EDIT: Replied to the wrong post, you know who I'm talking about.
your [maizeandblue21] delivery. Or content...I guess that's up for you to decide. Either way, your current MO is not working...
What about his awesome capitalization skills?
Well at least you have an informed rational opinion about it.
EDIT: Sorry, responded to the wrong post.
Further EDIT: Just kidding, no I didn't. BTW, as requested, I will go ahead and hate you for your completely absurd opinion. Have a nice day.
I've been accused of using straw men in arguments on this board. Why would I bother doing that when there are so many good examples of @#$%tards accusing RichRod of everything under the sun?
maizeandblue21 is a perfect example of someone who seems to truly believe that RichRod ignored an important part of Michigan when recruiting. He got him some anti-RichRod Kool Aid!
Offer them please!!! We need them both and they want M offers. Let's make this happen.
Good to see Mattison make contact with Richardson. He has some impressive offers already.
I just blogged about this, but it seems weird. Either they really want to impress how much these kids mean to them without actually offering them, or they want to make the offer presentation extra special? I was expecting them to wait until the Showcase to offer, but this could change.
Could it have something to do with the ammount of interest both have been shown by so many other schools?
Hoke doesn't strike me as one to get scared because a lot of other schools are approaching him. Could be wrong, though.
Isn't the Showcase not a Michigan-run event? So the coaches can't technically use it as a recruiting tool. I feel like this would be a better setting.
I was under the impression that the Showcase was a Michigan run thing, but then there was some other Badger Sports run thing that goes through AA that's not a Michigan run thing..could be wrong though.
The Showcase is run by Badger Sports and Curtis Blackwell. M is not allowed to be in attendance.
I stand corrected. They're one and the same! Offer away Matty! Ok that's a little weird.
If you looked at some of the recruits we lost out on this year many of them said that they didn't get enough attention from Michigan early on. Hoke and Mattison are definitely trying to change that right now. Show these recruits the love, show it early, and keep it coming. Win on the field and everything else will fall into place.
Double Post. Here's one of the first things that came up when I googled Terry Richardson. Enjoy?
care with his stuff. some of it is seriously NSFW.
He just did a Lady Gaga nude shoot (showed up on Google News when I searched for TR).
All your Technicians are belong to us!
It could just be an irrational teenage who's frustrated, but RJS has been very anti-Michigan on his facebook and twitter recently. He's frustrated from the lack of offer.
I think he's got a point. I don't really understand how other programs can be offering our state's top players before us. It just doesn't make any sense - and surely the MI players see we've been offering OH kids...
It just seems natural to offer the top in-state kids ASAP. It's much easier to offer and explain a later offer to an out of state kid...
Hoke's been here for 4-5 weeks, maybe 2-3 of which have been spent on junior film. He hasn't had the time that other programs have. Take it easy on him
an offer from Brady Hoke's UM?
I don't mean to rail on Hoke - he's doing a fine job and the explanation of "I just got here, give me a break" will probably be accepted.
However, a lot of film can be watched in 2-3 weeks.
I am and I definitely understand his short timeline. I just wonder at the wisdom of appearring to favor one kid at a pipeline school with multiple D-1 guys. I wasn't trying to be negative.
This is kinda my point.
Rivals is saying that Richardson has offers from LSU and Alabama and some lesser programs like MSU, Pitt, Iowa. Plus, he's hearing from Oregon, Nebraska, Boston College, Tennessee, USC and UCLA.
I realize he's hearing from M too and may get the M offer tomorrow, but I just would have liked to see them offer a bit earlier. Everyone knows the offer is coming, Hoke's been to the school several times, so why the wait?
If that's the case then it's a mystery as to why he wouldn't be a part of tomorrow's meeting. I'd think since the meeting is happening anyway they'd get all the D1 Technician's in '12 out there.
Could this be attributed to RJS really wanting a Michigan offer more than anything?
Isn't James Ross part of the discussion?
Since he's an Orchard Lake St. Mary's kid, not a Cass Tech kid, no.
James Ross goes to Orchard Lake St. Mary's but he's friends with the Cass kids.
He already has an offer anyway.
Brady Hoke will tell them that pre-season Lions games will be on channel 7.
this be are first commit TomVH?
Wow. Just wow.
Our you kidding me?
Who wouldn't want to play for Mattison!?!?!?!
there are only 15 scholarships to give out next year. With the huge hunk of DB's signed in this class, does that mean the coaches will either go after Richardson or Leviticus and not both?
I think if they take two CB's in this class, that one might need to be of the taller variety.
I'd be shocked if the class size didn't up to around 20 with attrition. I can't see anyway all the scatbacks and slot ninjas decide to stay through Spring, although they could prove me wrong.
I can only imagine that Cass Tech fields a defense with 11 DBs, because that's all we ever seem to recruit from there.
Yeah, I am pretty sure that Big Will Campbell played DB for Cass Tech when we recruited him to UM.
Hoke is gonna recruit the top players on the state of Michigan that fit what he is trying to do. That said he will definitely continue getting players from Mich pipeline schools while also winning over Mich St. Pipeline schools. Don't forget RR was not really focused on recruiting Mich kids because we don't really produce that many players that fit his spread system which I understand bit on the process he damaged a lot of relationships that I'm positive Hoke will repair. The future is very bright to return to the GoBlue of old....The Hokester OS running wild!!!
" RR was not really focused on recruiting Mich kids because we don't really produce that many players that fit his spread system"
That is not true. RR recruited here, though 2008 and 2009 weren't stellar years for the state talent, combined with Dantonio hitting our state triple hard, tag-teaming with his best buddy Tressel and negatively recruiting. This is how your perception was formed, causing you to make that statement above.
Continue the media chatter my friend...
Hasn't been on the job for a month. Come on, people.
Richardson and RJS are both guaranteed to get offers. It was just a matter of getting their ducks in a row. And we are going to have about 20 spots, and with the blue chippers in the midwest this season, we will probably see the coaches hold back other mid tier player offers until later.
The ultimate recruit !
This is from an article on 247sports talkin to RJS...take it FWIW but it doesnt sound promising
ST.We talked to [Terry Richardson] about this the other day but there is a pretty widespread believe among Spartan followers that there is a bias against Michigan State when it comes to Detroit Cass Tech players and they are going to end up at Michigan. What do you think of that?
RJS: I would say that is false. Anybody can go anywhere they want if they get the right offer. Former Cass Tech players may have went there but I think they all planned that. Terry and I, we are going to try and knock that off. We are going to make sure a lot of schools come in and recruit Cass Tech players. I don't know where Terry is going but he is not going to Michigan.
I'm not surprised at all with the above quote. They pretty much consign with this little number from RJS's twitter account a couple a days ago. "SMFH thats BS!! Im diffently not looking at no more schools in MI!! ALL OF THEM JUST LOST MY INTREST! ALL OF THEM PLAY GAMES
LIFE GOES ON IF U WANT TO SEE ME PLAY COLLEGE BALL COME DOWN SOUTH!"
Wow, so tells how you really really feel RJS!!!
Anyway, it's obvious that there's still A TON of time before signing day next year, but, this kind of tone from them so early on in the process can't bode well for us and kind of concerns me....a lot! Get those offer's out a.s.a.p. coach Brady!
If I'm not mistaken, this tweet came shortly after his appearance at an MSU Junior-day type event. He left the event without an offer and was disappointed. He later received his MSU offer.
