Seems like we should have room for 16 or 17, but I don't see us getting that many commits.

I doubt he is a lottery pick. NBAdraft. Net has him as a second rounder now.

I could have done without the kiss gesture by Stauskus. Some may like it, but I'd rather our guys not do stuff like that. Especially since we have another game against them coming up.

01/25/2014 - 2:52pm Yeah..I think it would be

Yeah..I think it would be just fine without kittens.

How about we retire the "we can has/I can haz" ect phrase?

01/14/2014 - 9:01am I get that people wanted

I get that people wanted Trey, but complaining every time he has a good game is getting a little old. Besides, if we weren't all being homers, we would complain he passed on Carter-Williams, not Trey.

What if we made it a 2fer and said said win vs Louisville or wins vs OSU and Sparty?

11/30/2013 - 10:44pm I think Brian has to expect

I think Brian has to expect some backlash when he acts like he has been lately. I guess we are to assume he sat in the Big House today with his arms crossed, muttering how Dave Brandon has ruined his life, ashamed to be there, but feeling obligated to go, and just Knowing that stupid Borges won't get us a single point because he doesn't run the spread like Brian wants.Yep, what a Superfan.

11/30/2013 - 9:21pm Will Brian whine that Borges

Will Brian whine that Borges screwed up his 39-0 prediction?

11/29/2013 - 7:41pm + infinity. It's nauseating.

Enjoy your cat, Brian.

Seriously, this epic whine-fest has gotten out of control. There are probably half the teams in the country whose seasons are labeled a disappoinment by their fans, I wonder if the self loathing is a fraction of what is going on here.

01/20/2013 - 7:36am Good thing he didn't wait

Good thing he didn't wait very long.

01/15/2013 - 1:30pm Yeah. No top end talent at

Yeah. No top end talent at all.

01/10/2013 - 3:17pm I get what the OP is saying

I get what the OP is saying to a certain extent. If you just look at YouTube, Green isnt really a "wow" type of player. "Wow" players on tape tend to be little guys who fly around making everyone miss and running all over the field. I also agree with Magnus that he is the type that will need a good OL, he isnt going to create yards on his own all the time. Thats why I'm not sure he would cure everything next year if he comes here. However, if he was running behind a strong OL, which we all think we will have for years to come, he could be exactly what we want. I'll trust the recruiting services and I would be beyond thrilled if he picks us, but I will agree somewhat that he isnt a lot of flash. Sometimes the great ones arent all flash.

01/09/2013 - 10:16pm As a GVSU guy familiar with

As a GVSU guy familiar with BK and Chuck, I would be happy if they hired Chuck. He's a good coach, but not even in the same stratosphere as Kelly. He was able to go 74-7 at GV, but mostly because Kelly built the school into a powerhouse, he just didnt drive the program off the cliff.

01/03/2013 - 8:53am And apparently Hoover will be

And apparently Hoover will be back as well. The only hope of their D not being very good again was if Narduzzi left, and that didnt happen.

01/03/2013 - 7:22am Fonoti got a redshirt, he

Fonoti got a redshirt, he will be back. And Chris Norman didnt even start for a lot of the year, Taiwan Jones did.

01/02/2013 - 11:54pm And yet they still almost

And yet they still almost beat us at home. Look, I'd love to think Sparty will be horrible as much as anyone. But we've thrown dirt on their grave before. 2009 they went 6-7 and then had back to back 11 win seasons. I'd agree that they were a terrible team this year if they got blown out, but they had 5 losses that were within 3 points? Thats insane. I'm not going to argue they will be great next year, I just think its foolish for anyone to expect we will waltz into EL next year and put a whupping on them. Their D will be as good or better, and I cant believe their offense will be worse. That means they will likely be in a lot of games again..yes, including us. Hope I'm wrong, but I'm not expecting them to roll over quite yet.

01/02/2013 - 11:30pm I know its the cool thing to

I know its the cool thing to do, to make fun of Sparty, but dont for a minute assume next year will be a cake walk. First of all, they will probably be better, even without Sims and Bell. They played all year with mostly backups on the O-Line, had a first year QB and new WRs who never got on the same page, and their defense was nasty. Fast forward to next year, they return their OL, and get back everyone in the passing game outside of Sims. They lose very little on their defense. They wont be a great team by any means, but not horrible like some here like to think.

Add in the fact that we are playing in EL, and you know Dantonio will be game planning for us all year...its gonna be a war. Seems like no matter what, some people just cant help but have extreme over confidence when it comes to Sparty. We barely beat them this year at home when they were "terrible". Get used to this game not being easy.

01/02/2013 - 1:40pm I'll take it as a positive

I'll take it as a positive sign until I see him posing for pics with Auburn or Tennessee commits.

12/21/2012 - 2:28pm Smart ass comment aside,

Smart ass comment aside, thats what was being asked. IF he was expected to fully recover. Got a link to this?

12/21/2012 - 1:27pm Thanks. This is what I was

Thanks. This is what I was wondering, if they had said anything about which bones were broken, if there was ligament damage, what type of surgery he had done ect.

 I guess without an official explanation as to what exactly the damage was, we wont know until one of the coaches says something about it.

12/21/2012 - 1:17pm Alright, so MgoDoctors:
With

Alright, so MgoDoctors:
With a severe fracture like that, is there potential for it being an injury that could be career threatening or keep him out as long as an ACL tear for example? I assume that if the bone fracture were the only injury, that would be able to heal in time for spring practice. Then again, he may have broken the tibia and the fibula? Would that impact his recovery? Just curious as I'd like to think we could have a healthy Fitz behind Devin next year in case we dont get Greene. Thinking of Rawls taking handoffs behind a brand new OL makes me terrified.

12/21/2012 - 1:04pm I realize that there was a

I realize that there was a broken leg, or ankle..or something. However, what was not revealed was whether there was any ligament damage, or anything like that. I have no medical knowledge, but I would think even a compound fracture wouldnt keep him out 9 months right?

12/20/2012 - 10:42pm Only 4 references by Brian to

Only 4 references by Brian to "The Process"? Good to see he is moving on.

12/20/2012 - 10:23pm McGary would go high based on

McGary would go high based on what? I've heard a few people talk about McGary as a future lottery pick and I dont see it. Dont get me wrong, I like his game and glad he is filling a role here, but I think too many people are wrapped up in him being a 5 star at one point. So far he has shown he can be a good rebounder and a hustle guy, but not much NBA game. Maybe in 3-4 years, but not seeing it now.

12/20/2012 - 10:19pm My hope is that THJ and GRIII

My hope is that THJ and GRIII stay. Burke is obviously gone, and I think with the way he is playing he will be drafted somewhere between 15-25, where last year he was viewed as a 2nd rd pick. The other 2 I think would benefit from another year, and its probably safe to say they wont have to leave because of financial situations.

12/20/2012 - 3:12pm In retrospect, perhaps my

In retrospect, perhaps my statements were harsh, but when the overwhelming majority of the board makes disparaging comments towards DB, it isnt hard to come up with the conclusions I made.

12/20/2012 - 3:09pm If you dont think his primary

If you dont think his primary objective is to make the school money, you are naive.

12/18/2012 - 8:10pm Being up by 5 at the half is

Being up by 5 at the half is an upset watch? They will probably win by 20 and make this thread look a little silly. Both teams actually.

12/11/2012 - 1:57pm My guess

This is an epic over reaction to nothing.

12/11/2012 - 1:56pm Never quite got over the Rich

Never quite got over the Rich Rod thing, eh dude?

12/05/2012 - 9:02pm Apparently the MSU beat

Apparently the MSU beat writer Matt Charbenau has sources that say its still between MSU and OSU. Which I can't believe because it makes zero sense.

12/04/2012 - 6:13pm Eh. We all said they were

Eh. We all said they were done in 2010 when they went 6-7. Don't throw dirt on them yet, they return a ton next year and lost all their games by slim margins. (Outside of ND) The game in EL will be a war again next year.

12/04/2012 - 6:08pm He's not going anywhere. He

He's not going anywhere. He will have a bunch of 7 or 8 win seasons and retire at MSU. Which I beleive is pretty rare.

03/07/2012 - 9:35am You are going to be extremely

You are going to be extremely disappointed if you think we will have 8 to 12 five stars in this class. Or even close.

03/30/2011 - 12:46pm He's not a Sparty fan. As

He's not a Sparty fan. As much as you'd like to think he's a fan of your "final four runs", he wears the S for "swag".

03/05/2011 - 9:34pm Haha..yes we are. I'm usually

Haha..yes we are. I'm usually the last guy to talk trash, just had some MSU people get to me lately and had that on my mind.

03/02/2011 - 8:09am Once again....for people

Once again....for people making tons of comments about who gained and lost weight, this is what players were listed at 1 year ago, not sure why they put the old info back up. I have a printout from a year ago and it's the same. For instance, Talbott was listed at 248 before the season, and 260 during the season. I have a feeling he will be 270+ when the updated info comes up.

03/01/2011 - 8:02pm This is an old roster (at

This is an old roster (at least as far as height and weight). These are what these guys were all listed as before last season. So I wouldn't make too much of it.

03/01/2011 - 11:18am Being the 5 seed *might* be

Being the 5 seed *might* be enough to get us in with a loss to Illinois, but it would be close. Man, that Wiscy game is haunting us.

02/16/2011 - 2:13pm I don't think Cam is a SLB. I

I don't think Cam is a SLB. I see him on the weakside competing with Mike Jones, with Herron and Fitz at SLB. Also think MRob will be a safety for sure.

02/16/2011 - 12:55pm Hmmm...but how could we be at

Hmmm...but how could we be at 85 when Brian insists we imposed sanctions on ourselves by leaving 5 schollys on the table? Sorry, fake neg if you like, but that rant still bothers me.

02/16/2011 - 12:51pm As others have said, it's 15

As others have said, it's 15 to start, not 17. I really believe if we have 18-20 spots in this class, half or more should go to the lines. 3 OTs, 2 OGs, 3 DTs, 2 SDEs.

02/14/2011 - 8:13am Any reason other than blind

Any reason other than blind optimism? He's probably a long shot anyway, let alone committing soon.

02/14/2011 - 8:05am Very commendable indeed. This

Very commendable indeed. This is one of the things that seperates UM and MSU fans. If a former UM player rescued a dozen children from a burning building, there would be a 10 page thread on the RCMB wishing he hadn't made it out of the building.

02/11/2011 - 1:06pm That size difference is

That size difference is nothing. Ryan Van Bergen (6'6 283), has a younger brother who signed with GVSU last year who is 6'0 166.
