I find it funny that people would think we have such a clear advantage over NW. At least they've been to a Rose Bowl since I've been out of diapers.
At least NW has been to a Rose Bowl after Reagan was president
He wanted to commit to MSU. He promised his parents he would visit other schools. I believe his parents want the NU education.
I thought Stanford was the Harvard of the West. Northwestern is more the midwest.
Kind of weird three people from three sites switch at the last minute. I'm guessing either they really didn't have a handle on his recruitment or they know something new. Or both.

If I was a stud football player, my choices would be Stanford or Northwestern.

I'm choosing to believe that he promised the parents he would visit Northwestern, he did and so now he has the green light to commit to MSU....Sparty no??
Here we go with the same old obligatory bull shit response. This is a fuckig fail by the staff. Just because a poster displays concern because we lost a recruit to an IVY doesn't mean he wants to scrap the program. Grow up and get a new line geek.
If reading recruiting threads distresses your delicate sensibilities then please make it your last. Go back to your Wings thread and comb your Kentucky waterfall.
I guess it's a fail by our university of being as good as Northwestern academically because academics seem to be the driving force here.
Skip, it's disappointing he's likely not going to commit to us but at the same time MSU while good academically cannot compete with Northwestern.

So what's the point of this whole Crystal ball feature if the "experts" can change their predictions whenever they want? I thought the point was that they make a prediction when they feel comfortable saying where a guy is going to end up, not just change their guess every month and then make a final guess the night before an announcement.
New shit has come to light.
It sounds better than cloudy ball.
The lifeblood of a program is money. The schools who consistently win have more money. If you don't believe me look at Oregon and Oklahoma State. They were both mediocre programs then got an influx of money and became NC contenders.
What time does he announce he is going to MSU
I get that. When it was explained it made it sound like these predictions would be made once and then each "expert" would have a record kept to see how accurate they are. If they can change them whenever they want, then there isn't any point.
I don't think that was the point of the feature. It was probably meant to be fluid.
Then there isn't any point. Every guy is going to have a 95-100% success rate because they'll either pick no team or will pick the heavy favorite at the time of the decision.
I don't think the purpose is to rate each staffer's accuracy over the long term. The point is for us to be able to look at a recruit and find out what the prediction is AT THE PRESENT TIME.
Crystal ball is now 100% Northwestern.
Well they specifically said they would keep track of their accuracy. I guess it just seems stupid to make multiple predictions.
You say that as if we haven't beat OSU or Mich in recent memory.
