what a line of BS. If the guy was one of the best in the country he wouldn't have been at either of the stops after Northwestern.
From Yahoo! Sports: The Wolverines continue to stockpile Class of 2014 talent.
Haters gonna hate!
Marshall chose the Wolverines over offers from top programs such as Ohio State and Oklahoma

When MSU was a loveable doormat other teams were so much nicer and complimentary.
Hoke is very aware of what happenseu to umaa coaches when they lose to MSU 3/4/5 times in a row.
I am very skeptical of Hoke's suddenly morphing into super recruiter.
You're right. We haven't beaten out a single player any other b10 school has offered. In fact, all players in the last two years chose between us and Buffalo. Excellent point. And all the recruits we have so far this year are Plan D guys who no one else wanted. Rumor is, some may not even have a full set of limbs.
Yea, a recruiting coordinator would be the reason a recruit would choose another school.
The only thing that guy knows is his way around a buffet
@FinalFourU This is why we only cover Michigan State basketball
So here is a story that occured a couple of weeks ago that I was going to post on the board, but by the time I got back to my hotel, I was hammered and forgot later on.
So I was at the Green Iguana Tampa Westshore, I think it is in what is not the Raddison. Right next to The Doll House for those who enjoy the naked lady circuit.
Anyway, I was enjoying a dinner and a few beverages at the bar and just chatting with the guy next to me. White guy, roughly 6'3 and maybe 230. Anyway, it was the first night of the NFL draft and he mentioned that he was wondering where "his guys" would go. I asked him who "his guys" were and he said "I played football at Michigan!". I said "Wow! Thats cool!! Did you grow up there?"
He indicated that he was from California and ended up moving from LB to DE because he was the reserve behind Foote and Foote would never come out of the game.
Anyway, I told him I was from Michigan (the state, didn't yet say MSU). He went off about how he loved the summers, but couldn't deal with the winters. Said that when he was being recruited, his main concern was the cold and that the staff told him that they had special funding for situations like that which would provide the recruits with winter coats and additional clothing to help with the cold. He said it was total BS and he went through his first winter in AA with nothing but a leather coat because he couldnt afford anything else.
Bottom line, is Michigan has been lying FOREVER
Its not sudden. There are quotes about him from when he was at SDSU saying "If there's one thing he can do, it's recruit". Combine that with UM's brand and revenue, they SHOULD be getting top 5 classes.
Hondo can eat a bag of dicks, and probably actually a few bags without getting full.
Support staff are a little different than coaches. The best don't always go to the biggest programs. They often have more job security than coaches and choose to go someplace because they like living there. Also salaries can be quite different despite the level of the school. A place like S. Miss might actually pay the ops guy more than a place in the SEC. He may have more responsibilities at one place over another. Its not as cut and dry as you make it sound.
I have been to that bar.
Who gives a shit what Hondo says?
Has he gotten pissed and called you a pussy ass typer yet?
I for one believe in our football program. Izzo has proven to be the football coach those of us who believed, when all others doubted, that YES HE COULD be a great football coach.
I can't wait till he does. He never tweeted me back after I told him I trust Hollis and Coach D over him
I wonder why true MSU fans even listen to him. Hondo is on the perma block list along side Huge and Stoudt.

I agree. The brand of basketball Izzo coaches could more accurately be called football.
Does John Deere sponsor your posts?
Pussy said what?
Whatever makes SI call you program if the decade I'd stick with. Just saying.
We have a Joe Palasky sighting ladies and gentlemen! This is truly a rarity, and should be treated as such.
I dunno about the rest of you, but I feel as if putting full blind trust into Josepth Palasky's statements is our best route here.
