Patrick Kugler @Kugleybear57
Committed to the University of Michigan! Gonna be a Wolverine! #GoBlue! @134_team
so is he not coming to campus today? any chance we flip him to the good side?
Meltdowns galore. MSU got owned on this one.
lol at Kugleybear...
Players play, tough players win.
We're getting our clocks cleaned by scUM. And don't give me the "Dantonio develops talent better line" ... these are guys Dantonio wants. Kugler was supposed to be ours.
Well, hey, I sure hope that speech at that Nike function pays off. I mean, since we're getting our ass kicked in the midwest, I hope we get some Cali kids...not that we have any in-roads or familiarity with them at all.
Do we really have to do this again? Already?
Kidding ourselves saying this isn't a problem right now.
We'll be "fine" either way, but JLS had as much success recruiting against UM as MD is having right now.

Welcome to the day's first meltdown thread.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
It should be over soon. I think UM is finally full on the OL (though they said they'd make room for Pocic, and he doesn't have us in his top 10).
When the "MSU leans" start dropping for UM, it's not a good thing.
There will be more to come ESPECIALLY if no one commits after Junior day.

It's February, right? Who is Kugler anyway?
UM, Green Bay and Chicago teams all have one thing in common: They all suck
That's why I said "first".
Very classy. I assume you would have made a lame joke about him if he committed to MSU today, correct?
They better lock Dillard up quick!
A 4* lineman who was supposed to commit to us this weekend...
Wow. This is unbelievable I try to refrain from posting in such threads, but this is looking bad. It's like USC recruiting against Little Sisters of the Poor. Hoke is absolutely having his way with us right now. Even when Lloyd was here and we had JLS, we at least got these kids to give us a look. What Hoke is doing to Dantonio on the recruiting trail is absolute murder.
I'd be curious if CDB classifies this as a rouschar fail as he did w Bosch.
Bring on Dillard. I still think we'll get two or three commits this weekend.
Junior in high school. Might see the field for Michigan in 2015.

Staff needs a new recruiting approach plain and simple. Kids who grew up rooting for us, being Spartan fans, talking about giving us a fair look are committing to UM the second they step foot onto campus. Unacceptable. Don't care to hear about "doing things the proper way and letting them go home and sleep on it"... They need to pressure these kids and let them know that they need to be at MSU. Otherwise it's back to the bottom of the Big 10 for us.
Somebody please let me know when U-M and OSU have everyone they want so that I can start paying attention to the kids we have a chance of actually seen playing for the Green and White.
But really. How do you do that. Call Kugler 2 days ago and tell him if he visits um his offer is pulled? Kids with that kind of talent can go wherever they want. He would probably have laughed at us and gone on to um or Osu or nd or psu or wherever. I don't think we have the stature (and it's obvious by the lack of highly rated recruits choosing us early) to play hardball. Kugler most likely knew he was our plan a recruit. His offer would have been good til signing day.
Staff has to figure out a better way to sell the benefits of msu.
