Don't know where the hate is coming from. We sure dont spend time bashing Michigan State.
Anyways, I think you guys and everyone else should support what we're doing.
1) aren't you guys getting tired of the SEC winning the title. It was 10 years ago when OSU/B1G won a title and we are doing everything it takes to knock them down.
2) you guys can get into Ohio easier then ever now. Look at our class, we are going national. Yes, I know you guys want Drake but he may or may not end up at OSU. Regardless, the fence around Ohio is open and it will only help Michigan State.

Check out our thread about the OSU game at the Bres and you'll find out what your friends do in their free time.
Tough love is in effect here|We won't accept you as you are|Instead, we will show you a vision of what you could be and help you achieve it
Really? No ideas? More than half the BS you inbreeds have been coming over here with has been deleted.
If you guys are really surprised that MSU fans are upset that another B1G school is going after a commit and #1 WR, then you need to get off your pedestal and stop sniffing your own farts. Get over people venting, much like your board is plenty guilty of, and stay over there.
Actually there hasn't been a lot of hate for OSU from MSU until Meyer came around. It's not because he is good or makes OSU better, but because of the way he handles business. If he really wants to knock the $EC down then he should go poach their recruits. No one is going to be happy with Meyer going after committed recruits except OSU fans. I will never be in favor of lowering the bar to the level the $EC does to succeed. I believe we can have success without sacrificing to that extent. ( Oversigning. paying players, lying to recruits, etc.)
Teams try and "flip" our guys all the time...
That's the reason why recruiting is a battle if anything you guys should look forward to the challenge.
You and I both know if Drake re-affirms his commitment to y'all after coming to columbus it will be an incredibly uplifting moment and could lead to great momentum for you.
I'm sorry but I just don't understand fearing competition. We fend guys away from Glenville all the dang time.
I guess you didn't want to address the previous posts about the O$U fans coming onto this board to talk trash. Do you now understand where the hate is coming from?
it's not fear, it's just that urban's level of whoredouchebaggerry is new to us. much like the concept of a home built on an actual cement foundation is new to you.
We have flipped and attempted to flip $EC recruits. trey Johnson flipped from Auburn and we hosted two committed Florida linebackers.
I disagree with you, if the b1G doesn't start trying to get the best talent in the country then we are doomed. You need the Drake's and Damon Webbs so compete with those SEC teams. You can't blame OSU for doing everything possible.
My question to you is, why doesn't Dantonio try and flip Michigan and OSU recruits? It's his job to get the best to East Lansing. Not worry about some artificial "gentlemen agreement."
What do you expect?
You guys trash talk us when you hear about Drake and then there is a thread about "flipping" Meyers wife and calling us trailer park folks. You already know you should expect buckeyenation to come represent. I mean come on man
No need for that, I came in piece big homie
Because we aren't scumbags.
And I'm sure you all are the epitome of class when someone like Alabama comes after one of your recruits. Meyer can establish whatever precedents he wants and everyone else will do the same for him. But you and the rest of your dbag clan have this attitude that we should be thanking you guys for this new commit competition. Get over yourselves, you guys are making UofM fans look good right now.
Yeah, and they've done swimmingly. I found the trailer trash comments to be funny in the beginning, but the more you guys "represent" here, the more I think it's actually true.
You refer to the SEC as the $EC, and we refer to OSU as O$U. You readily admit that you flip $EC recruits, and if the $EC is really doing what you accuse them, then you obviously are doing the same to flip their recruits. Thanks for strengthening the O$U argument.
So did he.
So your fine with MSU being at its status quo? For the b1G sale we ALL need to improve.
Bama came to Ohio and took a 5 star backer (Trey Depriest). That's competition, it told us we had to get better and we did. Hell LSU flipped our linebacker commitment this summer in Lewis Neal and ND flipped Alex Anzalone.
We didnt cry about it, we went out and got two other top 10 backers.
Nope, but I'm fine with us not stooping to your level.
I expect you to stay on your own board. If you come to our board, don't try to act like O$U is being treated unfairly or act indignant over "where the hate is coming from".
So you're OK with becoming scumbags and doing whatever is necessary to get recruits?
I assume Bama fans didn't come onto your board to bitch though. That's where you and Bama are much different.
We don't oversign not have the salary that $EC schools have. Meyer have never over signed. Not even when he coached in the $EC.
I'm sure no one on any O$U message board bitched about the loss of a five-star recruit to Alabama. Just like no Cleveland fans burned their LeBron jerseys after "The Decision".
I'm sure you didn't, that's why posters on your board right now admit that a lot of the fans lost their mind when it happened.
Trying to flip guys from other B10 schools keeps the talent level of the B10 at the same level of talent overall. I never said the B10 should not be trying to get the best talent, I said the B10 should not use underhanded practices to get them. Flipping recruits is not illegal, but like I said, only OSU fans would like Meyer trying to flip recruits from other schools. ( vs the fans of the other school liking it) I used to like Meyer a lot until I found out more about him. (Stopped liking him before he was even hired at OSU) The $EC gets a lot of hate, so it should not be surprising that $EC type practices get hated on.
