12/12/2018 - 2:32pm Recruiting tactics among…

Recruiting tactics among certain coaches are different depending on which part of the cycle we are in.  This is the time of the year that successful programs who have had great seasons can use negative recruiting tactics to their full advantage.  

Example:

U of Whoever lost embarassingly to archrival and rumors abound about head coach and d-coordinator heading out of town.  This leads to trepidation among youth fueled by savvy coaches seeding doubts and causing commitment flips.

Reaffirmation from coaches of team that secured original commit then causes youth to reassess and rethink a somewhat rash decision. 

So you see, theres no real need for “bagmen”

The NCAA is in no hurry for the same reason that the NBA wanted to do away with San Antonio vs Detroit finals(aka defensive).  Theres no money in a John Beilein vs Mark Few finals every year.   Dick Vitale would have nothing to do.  Scuse me, no one to blow.

Overlying conservative political affiliations in the city are quickly tempered by a fast-paced(for W. Michigan) progressive undertone that has lead to diversification of many things in the metro area.  Really a model for how both political affiliations can coexist.

Lived there until about ten years ago.  Everytime I go back, something new and exciting happening.  Gotta say, for where it is located(the heart of conservative West Michigan) there is a progressive feel to a lot of what goes on there.  No surprise that a few non-corrupt Detroit city leaders visited a few years ago to try and find ways to mimic its success.

No argument, just saying athletic teams give them the most trouble.  Not complaining about the outcome and not fancy statting the fuck outta my Saturday.  Just an observation from watching similar games.  I like that they won against a quality team while not playing their best.  

12/08/2018 - 5:30pm That proves my point. Would… That proves my point. Would've been a 1.6 PPP game against a less athletic team that doesn't challenge on close outs and clog up the lane. Spacing and rhythm leads to the offensive flow and low turnovers. Teams like USC disrupt that.
12/08/2018 - 4:16pm Athletic teams with length…

Athletic teams with length always give Beilein teams fits.  They can guard the perimeter and recover quicker on switches.  They also have long arms to get in the passing lanes.  Drawing out their bigs really didnt work until late.  Couple all that with them making a lot of bank shots and there ya go.

Need alum96 back.  Gonna take a stab.  We have 24 right now.  I could see 3 decommits, giving us 21.  We could then take up to 7 more?   I am gonna say, Harrison, Keegan, Ike, Johnson, Solomon, Ellies and DeLoach

What this means is that the University is well represented at most, if not all, collegiate athletics. This is something very few institutions can say.  Add in the lack of nefarious behavior and subsequent bad press and you have a recipe for something that we, as fans, should be extremely proud of.

Jan 19th, 2001, OSU hired a guy that had a strict set of priorities.  They didnt have to beg him to come there or pay a kings ransom.  They got a hungry ass son of a gun that did two things.  He locked down Ohio recruiting and prioritized beating Michigan.  Simple.  A self sustaining machine was built.  No longer were they gonna let us poach the Howards and Woodsons of their state, the difference makers.  

 

Michigan just doesnt have the talent in state to win that knife fight. Football isnt life in this state like it is in Texas, Ohio and Florida.  Convincing those lids to come here is hard.  Tressell finally just figured out that he had an sec setup in columbus.  Just had to be smart enough to use it. We need that type of identity.  A new identity.

Truth.  The straight up shit talking, grandstanding and t-shirt ordering crowd got rolled up on by a talented business-like Team of guys who just put everything they had into this game.   It would be nice if we couldve had that MSU level of hate for this showdown.  Maybe next year we focus on gameplanning instead of  making t-shirts.  OSU is a business.  Like it or not.  We have to become one too or it’ll never get better.
