is the Buckeye fan base reaction when someone decommits or actually takes OSU off the short list -- he sucks, we don't need any traitors anyway, I hope he blows a knee, etc. Add the threats to him and his family, and that sort of thing can turn a 17 year-old kid off his once-and-former tavorite school. I am hoping the Buckeyes continue to be unable to control themselves and drive the recruits away permanently through their abuse of message boards and social media. Their Buckeye nature works against them. Like the scorpion stinging the fox while it carried him across the river causing them both to drown, "I can't help it. I'm a scorpion."
Buckeye fans are the some of the worst without a doubt, but the tressel era has spoiled them they have become overwhelmed with the osu is better than all and if you don't think so you are not good enough to be here.....That is what makes Michigan a better program. When we win or lose morals need to stay in place. Bo taught us how to when the right way while Woody punced opposing players.
That was an awesome two-parter on Star Trek:Voyager.
Suck it, DS9 slappies!
Anybody else worried about MSU? After snagging Pittman, I'm a bit worried they have a great shot at Washington (and thus also Stanford).
that Washington and Pittman didn't want to play together....I might be wrong though, perhaps it was Wormley. I do know that I heard two of the Ohio kids didn't want to play together though (and I think it was Washington and Pittman).
I heard that two but OSU and MSU people have both said that it wasn't true and they like the idea of playing together.
very possible as I have only heard mention of it on this site. At least I know I am not crazy since you say you heard it too. I'll just hold out hope that it's true, though it doesn't seem to be the case if Pittman is committed to MSU and Washington has them in his top 5...dammit!
Pardon my Michigan arrogance, but I'm not. Why go to MSU when you could go to U-M now? I could see it during the RR years when the football programs had very different approaches, but now Dantonio/MSU just strikes me as a very poor man's Hoke/Michigan.
I personally would steer away from that argument until we see how Hoke does in atleast his first year. Dantonio has already proven himself (with the exception of playing against elite teams or teams having great seasons), but his record since coming to MSU is very positive. I am waiting to see how Hoke does, but I believe it will be positive in his first season.
Thats because it is.
I believe your services are needed at mlive, no need to fill this blog with your octopus ink.
I don’t think UM should be too worried about losing Washington to MSU. I do however feel MSU should be worried about losing Pittman to OSU if the sanctions are less than expected.. With all the past and present DL coaching experience on UM’s staff it’s going to be hard for these recruits to look past this, coupled with all the other benefits of UM in my opinion.
Any 247 Insiders out there. I noticed in the article that it says "Michigan has offered a WR/S". Trying to figure out who it is.
The header says that West Virginia has offered a Michigan WR/S.
Thanks detrocks.....night shift.....UGH!!!
If the plan is still to take around 25 or 26 players, I would hope that the coaches are recruiting to fill up around 23 or 24 of those spots now, leaving 2-3 spots for national signing day and the AA game. I would hate to see us miss out on talent like Washington, Shittu, Peat, and whoever else due to the fact that we couldn't wait a few more months to let them have their moment and enjoy the process. I love our class and trust our coaches strategies and judgements, but I will be disappointed if we grab other players instead of them only because they were willing to commit early.
There's a difference between Pittman's "commit" and Washington. Pittman was chomping at the bit to commit to someone that would accept someone of his academic stature, but he's very much still looking around. I'm not aware of academic issues with Washington and I think he's more likely to stay committed to whichever school he first gives a verbal to.
Also, unless you hear that Stanford is also interested in MSU, it's less of an issue. I'm curious to see Stanford's list and how they compare. According to his Scout profile, he's interested in all the same schools and then some. Anyone know when he's narrowing it down?
Good point! I forgot about the Stanford scenario. I think MSU has received a commit from a WR and has about 3 more WRs that are very interested in them.
Greatest video clip of the day.
So, basically he replaced OSU with MSU since he put his first top 5 list out a few weeks back? Would the biggest competition for him come from Alabama, Miami or both? Maybe Pittman is trying to persuade him to look at MSU strongly.
On 247sports, it has Stanford of having a top 2 consisting of LSU and OSU. For washington it has a top 5 that does not consist of LSU (but does have OSU in there as the 6th school). If this is accurate, then does this mean they have decided that attending the same school may not be a possibility for them? I would not put OSU in Washington's list because it was not mentioned by his father. I would love to see Stanford at Michigan, but if he does not decide for here and Washington does, and Payton also does, then I would be enthusiastic about it.
Don't put too much weight into what recruiting sites like 24/7 say about a recruit's top schools. It usually seems to be speculation, especially as is seems some of the sites don't always have all of the recruit's scholarship offers listed.
Sounds pretty accurate. I don't see all the recruiting sites saying the samething, so I will agree with what you say.
Love the Jalen Rose quote in your sig haha
I don't think we should we overlook Kentucky, especially if Calipari lets play basketball.
Does Washington have a high (or higher) interest in basketball over football? I haven't read to much of how interested he is in basketball, but if it were solely dependent on football, then wouldn't the tradition in Michigan, Miami and Alabama be way ahead of Kentucky?
Kentucky is the local school of that group. UK is only an hour and a half from his home, and a lot of people in Cincinnati grow up fans of Kentucky sports, so it's possible he did too. Not that Cinci is all that far from AA, but it's about 3 times farther than UK is.
