This thread is awesome!
They always do. Plz don't threaten their perceived superiority over all other B1G teams.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
Moran. Where is Devidee? At least he's funny.

They always loved each other, it just took the rest of the conference catching up to realize it...

Nothing says hatred like their one week a year, one sport rivalry
Let Ohio State and Michigan go with USC, Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Virginia Tech, etc., and form the NCAA champions league because there's no point in having schools like MSU even having football teams. Scrap the program! We not worthy!
The buckeye guy said OSU doesn't cheat but weren't they just banned for cheating? Lol

You think you're super cool and clever using the LMGTFY TWICE now in your posts, huh?

B49, just stop. Your initial post rationalized that poor ole' Meyer was FORCED into flipping recruits because he had no other choice but to do so.
Admit it and move on. Meyer is a poacher. Denying it is just stupid. But you are right, it isn't illegal. It's just sleazy when there hasn't been a coaching change. Thanks to Meyer, he has set the sleaze precedent in the B1G and, I agree, MSU is going to have to roll up their sleeves and dig in deep in order to compete with the likes of OSU.

2 years ago. ancient history.
Doesn't count anymore, brah, since Tressel isn't "THEIRS" now.
Psychotic fan base.
let's assume you are correct that it was a pick6. Just 2 questions remain?
1) you can accurately predict that OSU wouldn't have scored at all after that.
2) so... you should have ended up 12-1 instead of 7-6???????????????????
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
Okay, I read 4 pages of this and had some laughs. (Thanks for that.) However, now I want to give you my two cents.
1) Meyer doesn't give a damn about the B1G or any other school within the B1G (nor should he or anyone else)...other than the fact they are (or soon will be) anchors around OSU's neck (in terms of CFB). Make no mistake, he won't be happy until the conf. officially changes it's name to "OSU & Little 11."
2) Stop whining about "poaching" and feigning ethics. You don't own recruits/commits and if you can't keep them convinced your school is best for them, that's on you. OSU always has a top class. Fight fire with fire...if you think you can somehow make that work for you.
3) Stop whining about not enough talent in the North or only Ohio having it and get your freaking staff in a damn plane to recruit Tx, Fla, Ga, etc.
In OSU's '13 class we had:
- 3 kids from Tx,
- 2 kids from Fla,
- 2 kids from Ga,
- 1 kid from SC
- 1 kid from NC
- 1 kid from CA
- 1 kid from NJ
- 1 kid from MO
- 1 kid from IN
- 11 kids from OH.
So well over half our class came from OOS, including a bunch from SEC territory and other southern climes.
That is all.
Please resume your regularly-scheduled Meyer and OSU bashing. Hopefully it will keep you warm during the storm hitting out region the next day or so.
Why don't you google those? Maybe you'll find the answers.
Fans like this are why I hate Ohio State so fucking much.
Urban is not looking to give B1G coaches pointers on recruiting at an individual level. The main point of having a group discussion among coaches is how the B1G conference can raise the profile of all of the teams. Competition breeds excellence. From his experience of coaching and recruiting in the SEC, he knows what a recruiting advantage it is to have so many night games. It will take the collection of coaches to change this tradition, not just one or two schools. There are logical reasons why the B1G only have day games in the month of November and it was because of cold weather. The flip side is the south (SEC) has a lot of night games, because of the heat at noon which is less safe for players and fans. One big challenge of having so many noon games, is that recruits and fans do not have enough time before the game to experience the buildup of the gameday atmosphere, which creates a lot of anticipation and excitement. I personally think there is something really special about the night games in the B1G. I have been to a lot of B1G games over the past decade and noon games are okay, 3:30 games are usually pretty good, and night games are rocking. I have always wanted to go to Madison for a night game just for the atmosphere.
I can understand any fan/coach being frustrated when they lose a recruit that they thought they had locked up. However, most of these young men love the attention, and if they were serious about their commitment, they would quite taking calls from other schools once they made their pledge. I'm sure it is hard for them to turn away all of the flattering, ego-stroking recruiters and free trips to see parts of the country that they may never had the opportunity to visit.....and at the end of the day, until they sign..... these young men don't owe any university allegiance and they should use up all the opportunities, as they will be making one of the most important decisions of their lives. I personally would like all of the B1G schools do well, except for U of M, and that is only because they are evil
i don't know about the "self congratulatory dickhead" part... but the rest is accurate.
That's not why, bro. You hate them because their team is where you wish your team was. Lie to me. Lie to rCMB. But do NOT lie to yourself. That is all.
Yeah, those national championships weren't anything to write home about. Turning Bowling Green and Utah into winners wasn't impressive either. That crazy good career winning percentage? Overrated.
Look, I agree with a lot of the comments in this thread. I think he's filth. I think anybody who thinks he won't dominate this conference is in for an incredibly rude awakening. I'm gonna have a good time laughing at Michigan fans after he wins 8 of the next 10 games between them, but i'm also praying that the divisional realignment is kind to us and puts us in the opposite division as OSU. I'm a realist.
Okay, fans like THIS are why I hate Ohio State so fucking much.
Im done, I guess he should have just accepted a crappy recruiting class and moved on. Give me a break. What he is doing is far from sleazy. If he calls a kid and that kid decides he likes tOSU better, the school that has him as a commit has a responsibilty to keep him around like tOSU did with Trey Johnson, EZE elliott, Munger etc. This is the reality of recruiting nowadays, not the circle jerk that is the Big 10.
C'mon global warming.
