"No one cares what you know, until they know how much you care." Mark Dantonio
.....Until they decommit or have a better player recruited in their stead.
This is part of the reason Shane Jones didn't choose UM. He loved MSU more to be sure, but he knew how unscrupulous Hoke is and didn't want an already committed player losing their spot. Mgoblog missed the story on that one, not surprising.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
That is after the fact.. saying you're full is no longer a sell. The result has nothing to do with the approach.
Those teenagers are so lucky to have you as their rival message board spokesperson.
This whole thread is ridiculous!
The ummies flocked to this thread like May Flies to a bug zapper.
More ummies have posted here and I hope they notice their posts haven't been vaporized and they haven't been banned.
Had I posted this on one of their M/blue boards I suspect this thread would have been gone in minutes, perhaps seconds. Have to chuckle about a fan base that can't admit they recruit like many other schools.
In this case Hoke and company played the pressure card and it didn't work so they back tracked.
Why does anyone here give a damn what the lying weasels have to say about anything.
They have become irrelavant!

Nίκη για MSU
I haven't had time to read all of the comments but this happens at almost all schools, including MSU.
I know that in the past Coach D has told recruits that it comes down to the first person to commit at whatever position they offer. If they take visits to other schools after they commit then that is not seen as a true commitment, and recruitment is open for that position again.
This a surprise? I've long said that M is certainly Leaders and Best when it comes to spin and getting the overwhelming majority of their fanbase regurgitating said spin without hesitation or variation.
Obviously, Walverines by nature are predisposed to be lemmings, so it's not exactly moving a mountain to make that happen, more like scuttling a northern ant hill.
Not on this board.. J Rose's arrest thread was longer than Wood's arrest thread
Some Michigan fans are admitting that Michigan recruits like other schools. However, people are making it sound as if Hoke is the most dishonest coach in the country.
think before you post, ron
We've got depth. We've got numbers.
I don't see a problem there.
Meh, as long as it helps with recruiting I guess.
With the amount of UM fans this thread is drawing the next thing you know MaizeRagePaul will make an appearance.
Good ole' EMUPaul.
Irrelavent teams play in BCS bowls?
For two of the BCS bowls and their ratings last season it appears to be the case.
Ought boy. **** storm abrewin.
VTech did, Clemson did, Utah has..
and judging by ratings and ticket sales, yes, they certainly do.

Yep. See: Kansas, Stanford, UM, Boise, Pitt, WVA, Connecticut, Utah, TCU.

Stanford, Boise, and TCU have been some of the most followed teams/stories for the past few seasons, I'm not sure you can label these teams "Irrelevant" anymore. I won't comment on Michigan due to my conflict of interest
Now the lost ummies want to change the subject.
How many more posts before they start bragging about the leather helmet era?

WVA has 3 BCS bowl wins.
With some of you--I'm assuming/hoping the non-MSU grads--I feel like I'm arguing with a 4-year old. There are some bright folks on here capable of having rational arguments, but there are also some real idiots. This is certainly true at mgoblog, but the ratio is much much better.
I was going to ask you, out of the 17 kids currently committed to Michigan for this class, how many do you expect to decommit? After your lack of knowledge in regards to Shane Jones and Michigan, I realize that you have no clue what you are talking about in regards to Michigan and recruiting.
