I was at the Missouri-Nebraska kicked ball overtime game when the Michigan-penn state game was happening, and about every 10 minutes the Michigan score would pop up and I kept thinking it was a mistake.
I think penn state was ranked no. 2 and Michigan 4 at the time.
Nebraska was 1. I know because to this day I still can't believe Missouri choked that game away.

This. Exactly this.

I used to watch other schools recruit like this — Texas, USC and recently Alabama — and wonder why Michigan couldn't match their recruiting. Especially Texas, which basically is Michigan south (the two schools are very similar in how they view themselves and how others view them). And, yes, I know Texas has an advantage by having a huge home state to pull recruits from.
I just always wanted Michigan to recruit like the top schools do. Now, Hoke is doing exactly that.

Anybody else getting sick of this one or the other crap?
They're both great. They've both done great jobs since they've taken over at Ohio State/Michigan. They've both done great jobs prior to their current jobs.
To argue over who's a better recruiter when both are consistently pulling in four/five stars is pretty stupid. To actually try and win that argument is even dumber. Especially since you really can't judge a recruiting class until the players have graduated and you're looking back at their accomplishments.
I hope this continues and Hoke and Meyer make the next 10 years the second coming of the Big 2 and Little (insert correct # here). And here's to Michigan winning the majority of those matchups.
As for Meyer's national championships ... he won them. Of course, neither of those Florida teams managed to go undefeated.
