Am I the only one who reads all of your posts in Scruffys voice?
|29 weeks 1 day ago||This guy has long been one of||
This guy has long been one of the more intriguing prospects of this recruiting cycle IMO. As has been said upthread, this dude is a pure offensive weapon. Put him in the backfield, out wide, or in the slot. Between Campbell and Harris stretching the field vertically and Green/Smith/Shallman pounding the snot out of the defense, our general TE silliness, and Norfleet raising general havoc, adding Ballage into the mix to be an all around threat would just be unfair. Besides Hand, this is far and away the player I want most in this class. He is going to be an absolute STUD at the next level and if it's for Staee I'm going to puke. Dude is a potential game changer

Behind Hand, Malik, and JuJu I think that Ballage might be the player I want most in this class. He has a very unique skill set and could potentially play outside or in the slot in different packages. He reminds me of a poor man's Ty Isaac. If I have one complaint about our offensive skill position recruiting it's that the players we've gotten don't necessarily have a ton of flexibility. I know I'm just being nitpicky but I love players that can move around the field to give the defense different looks.

Because they're lazy and firing people is easy. It changes absolutely nothing of course but it makes you LOOK like you're doing something which is all that matters.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||This is terrible. A good||
This is terrible. A good friend of mine from HS played at GVSU and was really close with Cullen. I never would have guessed he had problems like this, he was always such a great guy. I pray that this ends well and he gets the help he needs.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||I swear to God if these||
I swear to God if these fucking umps have to meet up one more time and drag this bullshit game out any further, I am going to run to the nearest living thing and throttle it to death. It's almost like they're trying to make this game go on forever.

Kids born in 92 can drink. Where does the time go?

I'd reckon your /s meter needs some fine tuning

Defensive stats are pretty much worthless IMO. You really can't quantify a players defensive range or overall defensive abilities like you can with offense.

What's he gonna do with all these shirts once Urbz flips him?

I can't wait to see a DL of Mone, Pee Wee, Henry/Hurst, and Wormley. Good luck running against that line. I'd also love to see us be able to put something together like SC did with their "Rabbit" DL (or whatever they called it with all their speed rushers together). Mone, Mario, Poggi, TBD (obviously hopefully McDowell or Hand). God I love the way this staff recruits, the versatility we have on defense is absolutely astounding on all three levels.

|1 year 4 weeks ago||Not to feed the RCMB trolls||
Not to feed the RCMB trolls but State has no chance of consistently getting top 25 classes. They're getting the leftovers from the midwest after us and Ohio (and Penn State to some extent) take the players that we want. Sure some guys like Finley and Reschke fall through the cracks but even those guys aren't class makers but rather solid players that help to make up a good class. Staee got hot when RR couldn't quite get a grasp on how to take advantage of the Michigan brand name locally and picked up some good players, those days are obviously over now and little bro will be back to mediocrity. Hopefully we get at least a few good Valenti meltdowns (before he becomes an Ohio fan like the front running twerp that he is)

Wait a second...you're telling me that isn't Mark's happy face? I really can't tell with that man.

He's really quite emotional
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I wouldn't have minded Finley||
I wouldn't have minded Finley and Reschke. Terry has a shot to be a player, the rest of their class is actually pretty laughably bad. Where's the threat?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Oh wow I didn't realize||
Oh wow I didn't realize that. It seems like their name was out there for some top level players but apparently they couldn't close. Or maybe that's just how their scholly numbers worked out.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||He hit a three like a second||
He hit a three like a second and a half after the shot clock expired. He can take his look and shove it, that game should never have gone to OT. Oh and while we're on the subject, he was hammering everybody all night and had carte blanche (plus he raked THJ across the face). Ohio got every single break last night, Craft and his look can blow me.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||Wow, what a riveting||
Wow, what a riveting interview with Jordan Cunningham.
"So, I'm supposed to say where I'm going now?"
I know these are kids and they're out of their element but come on, at least be prepared.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||It's adorable that you think||
It's adorable that you think they actually got punished. The lack of a bowl game last year was really the only punishment they had. This is exactly why schools cheat, the rewards are greater than the punishment.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||It was like watching a||
It was like watching a mid-90's NHL game. Clutching and grabbing all night with no calls. Craft is one hell of a defensive player, there is no doubt about that but he got away with a TON of contact and a TON of grabbing last night.

Dawson, Poggi, and McCray, I'd imagine McCray and Dawson have some sort of ceremony at their school. I know Poggi does in about an hour.

Maybe I'm just a traditionalist but I like my cheating to at least be somewhat of a secret
|1 year 4 weeks ago||So...changing gears a little||
So...changing gears a little bit. Ole Miss is definetely doing something very shady. You don't have a joke of a program and then reel in 3 of the top 10 players in the country. Something is not right with this situation.

“He claimed he could hit 17 of 20 3s RIGHT THEN AND THERE, everyone howled and said no way, he just laughed and kept yelling ‘f*** ya’ll f*** ya’ll’ “
Hands down the best part of the story, I'm not sure why but that really made me laugh

How long have you had that one in the chamber?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Has anybody ever blown you||
Has anybody ever blown you away? Every single recruit you basically end up saying that they suck or you're not impressed with them. I know coaching JV football for a couple years makes you a supreme evaluator of talent but it's odd to me that you would know so much more than every recruiting service.

You could say the same about Beilein...I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin
|1 year 6 weeks ago||He gone. Sucks, wish we||
He gone. Sucks, wish we actually had some time to find a replacement. Great parenting Biff, teach those kids to be men of their words. Or just lie and lie and continue to lie when you're found out and act like you hate recruiting. What is it about recruiting that makes all these people sneak around and flip flop on decisions. I really can't think of a real life parellel to anything like it.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||I know your gimmick is to be||
I know your gimmick is to be salty and say that every recruit we have is basically average at best but besides Shane who had an "underwhelming season"? It's just kinda funny that you think our class is apparently so awful despite everybody else in the country thinking it's pretty damn good. Your act is getting pretty stale man.
