So Mr. Harris now believes he is too big time for our program. That's odd. He's not even man enough to call our coaches himself and decommit. Instead he had his coaches do it for him. Next.

I honestly think Urban Meyer talked him out of continuing to play basketball. Everyone always said that Basketball was his 1st love, now football is more fun? I think he's selling himself short as a basketball player, he's a legitimate top 50 recruit and if he improves he has a chance to be a McD's AA. The money and the future is better at playing b ball. He's got as good a chance to play in the NBA as he does the NFL. The NBA pays better, you hae a longer career, and you get to be healthier when you retire.
I think the big time recruiting left him start struck, he's not really thinking of his future, just wanted to be recruited and wowed.
It's not really stooping. It's saying that if the kid doesn't want to play football for MSU, it really works well for both parties: the kid gets to go find a system that is the best fit for him and we get to offer that scholarship to a kid who genuinely WANTS to play football at Michigan State. I really wish that Drake would have wanted to be a Spartan - he is an incredible player and any team would be lucky to have him. But if he doesn't want to be here, I'm not going to lament over it. Best wishes to him wherever he ends up.
Even if you don't make the NBA you can make good money playing in Europe. I'm about to graduate and playing in Europe would pay more than any of the jobs I'm qualified for.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
Sorry, I'd love to sip the anti-Michigan kool aid with you, but they aren't going to go back to not making bowl games. Sure, they will get to the point where their definition of a disappointing season will be the same as ours (6-6 or 7-5 and still go to a lower-tier bowl), but that's about it.
Didn't he get an offer from Indiana in like 8th grade for hoops?
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
I suppose I should have added a "wink" smiley? That was said with a bit of tongue in cheek, guys.
But remember, UM was VERY close to being 6-6 this past season (fraction of an inch between Denard's knee and the ground in our game, and some very good fortune against Northwestern). Yes, yes, we were very close to being much worse (or much better), too, but the question was about UM.
Of course, I also said with just as much tongue in cheek, that we'll win 11 games, which I thought more people would have objected to. It's probably about as likely as UM missing a bowl game. Both are possible, neither is likely (favorable schedule or not, we will have Maxwell or a new QB--neither makes me very comfortable--and big unknowns at RB and TE).
Europe... You getting paid to play bball. Nice gig if you can get it.
Clearly Urbz fault
