It is. Same title, but Michigans dirsctor of player personnel is all recruiting and does nothing with academics.
I call foul. The BCS hasn't been around since 1994!!
It seems like it would be like pointing out to a recruit how much one coach earns vs. another. I want to believe that what matters more, even to the still developing brain of a high school kid is, "OK but who's the better coach, who's going to make me the best player I can be."
I want a name and program
Anyone can make up garbage. Back it up with names and facts or shut the fuck up
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------
Which one are you??
Yeah, B1G coaches are using the USNWR rankings against us too.
It's just a title. Salem does a good job for having his time split.
PSU, tOSU, and scummmmm always tell their recruits lies to get them to sign. tOSU tells recruits that tats are free, PSU tells them that they don't molest boys, and
the scummies tell their recruits that they win championships.
Nίκη για MSU
Saban must be slacking off, LSU just became top dog in the rankings
They picked up a 5 star WR the other day
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Couldn't agree MORE pulling69....this fat clown is a cancer IMO. He has been beating the 'underfunded' drum for quite some time now. He actually told a friend of mine in a phone conversation in February that Izzo was losing the team and at least 3 players would depart at end of year: 2 by transfer and 1 to the NBA....all untrue. He's a complete hack.
We are -8 in the team rankings now WTF
So, why do we keep failing to close on recruits? We have plenty of hot chicks around to bang (more than down the way in AA, for sure) and plenty of football to play.
The fact is, these 17 year old kids like the stupid pizzazz of titles; what sounds better to a 17 year old male getting a letter, "Director of Recruiting" or "Assistant Defensive Backs Intern"? Don't kid yourself.
The Dude abides. I don't know about you but I take comfort in that. It's good knowin' he's out there. The Dude.
Have you seen our defense? Seems we're recruiting pretty damn well.
"RCMB: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainry." - some dude from MgoBlog
We "were" recruiting pretty damn well. And how is our offensive recruiting going? We could have used some help there last year, huh?
BTW Scout had us at 27 in 2011, 38 in 2012 and 45 in 2013, not a great trajectory. Although I suppose that that good class we got in 2011 is doing great on the field now, things are looking less great for future years
So if we just give someone the title of "Grand Poohba" the 5 stars should start rolling in.
Among other things, yes. If you name someone director of recruiting (or something equally silly), I would imagine that will help.
Were recruiting well? And how do you know all our future recruits are going to be failures? Go ahead and concern yourself with star ratings, I'll go by the product on the field.
We had one bad year on offense. It was the exception not the rule. And when you lose all the talent we did in one year, a step back should have been expected.
Hondo seemed genuinely upset that Payne returned. Guy seems to have a real problem with Izzo about something.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Yeah, that's why we aren't bringing in 5-star studs left and right. Give me a fucking break. And how the fuck do you claim to know what 17 year olds like? Wait...don't answer that.
So I guess you were never 17 then? Or maybe you aren't quite there yet?
I guess the whole "keep on keepin' on" plan of yours has some merits though; I can always save my money I would have spent on going to watch MSU in a BCS game and use it for something else instead. I guess our downward recruiting trajectory and the fact that we are missing out on basically every recruiting battle we have with any other B1G programs is just a result of bad luck? Sunspots? The Illuminati?
We've never out-recruited UM and OSU, and slapping a fancy title on somebody isn't going to change that. We've been fortunate however that Dantonio and staff have had an excellent eye for talent, and that's the important thing.
We don't need no stinking recruiting coordinator!
I think this is just sour grapes from Hondo. Do you think prospective recruits care if you have a "recruiting coordinator" or not? These kids are recruited by the coaches. Look at rivals and other recruiting sites, and they'll tell you who a kid is recruited by. And it's always Narduzzi, Salem or one of the other coaches. Same for every other D1 school in the country.
Who the hell cares what they say about us? Dantonio is a big boy, he can do whatever he needs to do to get a recruit or not. Just get it done. Then you play with who you have and either do it or shut up. Honestly, who cares what they say about you.
