Back to incorrect use of the sour grapes term....sigh.
And as others (including myself) have said, I assume it's about more than poaching a committed kid.
Printed, published, true.

We're like an Iowa that wins more games.

From the article posted earlier:
" During his National Signing Day press conference, Bielema hinted that Meyer was using "illegal" recruiting practices. He said as much again Thursday when contacted by Sporting News, and without getting into specifics offered this:
"I called Urban and we spoke about it," Bielema said. "We talked about it, and he said it would stop and it did. I'll let our commissioner deal with anything else. That's not who we are [in the Big Ten]. We settle things among ourselves as coaches."
Meyer's arrival and big splash on the recruiting trail, which included flipping several recruits committed to other Big Ten schools, clearly has rankled coaches in the league. There's a belief, whether it's real or not, that things are done differently in the Big Ten. Bielema spells it out to the Sporting News' Matt Hayes, saying, "We at the Big Ten don't want to be like the SEC -- in any way, shape or form."
a) Beilema did contact Meyer directly
b) It was about ILLEGAL practices
c) I love the crack on the SEC (I agree we don't want to be like them, but winning a NC would be nice)
Where is Rex? Of course he doesn't strike me as the type of poster who puts together rationale arguments to prove a point. It's more about implying things with no supporting evidence or logic...and the words "whiny bitch".
I think Dantonio and Beilema aren't niave to the fact that people know they take recruits from other schools. If they are taking the time to bring it up I'd imagine they are talking about something they are not doing. They aren't that stupid.
I AM KIND, SMART, POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, TERRIFIC, AND TREMENDOUS
Maybe or maybe not. But I think this is all still guesses.

Bielema says NCAA rules violations were not committed
No rules violations, yet he's having his AD run to the commish's office like a little girl to tattle tale. Like talking to delaney about ethics concerns is going to do anything. Delaney and ethics talk....really? Nice move fatass.
You are one little prick,what a piece of sh#t!
Grow up and get out of your mommy's basement for crying out loud!
MSU get ready to get smoked like usual,last year was a fluke and you know it!
That is incorrect,people were pissed that he beat us in the championship,of which sparty wouldn't know about.
He didn't over recruit or steal anyone,quit being a baby.

Youll be dearly missed.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
How does it feel to be at a school that can't win if it isn't cheating? Whether it's Clarrett, or the hoops team under O'Brien, or the tip of the iceburg this last go around.
We'll be wondering where the hell you are after MD & the Spartans kick OSU's ass back to Cbus in the fall.
Maybe, but you cheat and the world knows it. Which is worse?
Apparently, my ass. Nowhere in any of those statements could it be assumed that Bielema was talking about illegal practices. It certainly sounded more like he was referring to this "gentleman's agreement" dealio, which, of course, is a load of bullshit.

I posted that yesterday before this confirmation came out.
This is kinda funny actually...
"get ready to get smoked like usual" (it happens ALL the time!!!)
"last year was a fluke!" (except for that one time...actually the most recent time)
in other words, you were talking out of your ass...
You're an angry little poster
I must have interpreted the part of the article from yesterday where it said Beilema hinted at illegal practices. I foolishly took that to mean illegal practices.
Care to recant your shit about Beilema being a tattle tale (which is pretty funny regardless), now that we know he contacted Meyer directly?
you're an angry little....
It's time to move the fuck on. Chitown Badger, I apologize for some of our more sensitive posters. Some of them are acting angry about this (because it involves bielema) when really it's not anything to get worked up over. I personally don't like your coach, but he pretty much said what everyone was thinking. Meyer is a douche, plain and simple.
Why don't you just tell us whose schtick you are?
I'm pretty sure I know
