HAHA at the commenter who said Braxton should watch his back.

I wish the worst for scUM, but I kind of want them to go undefeated just to watch the Bucks curb stomp their national title dreams next November.

This kid is the epitome of a tool.

You aren't kidding. I can't wait for this kid to see the field so he can get steam rolled. 


We may have missed on his talent, but we definitely won't miss this kids attitude. Give me any of our less talented OL with a better attitude any day.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Kyle Kalis:  so nasty and freakishly talented at being an offensive tackle, they are going to move him to guard.  Spence, Washington, and Pittman are going to make this kid look like Steve Rehring after a night out at Old Country Buffet:  fat, foolish, and full of regret.

Hard to buy Kalis as such a tough guy, given the way he bailed on the Buckeyes and did so in about the weaseliest (is that a word?) way possible.

I hate to be one of those sour grapes types, but I have to agree that if he can't play tackle, this is no great loss. This is even leaving aside his charming personality.

I'll just say we would all love to have Kyle Kalis, the player....what I will say is after hearing him run his mouth for the last 6 months, I am not so sure I love Kyle Kalis, the person

He is an 18 year old kid that's probably gotten a lot of crap from OSU fans about switching to Michigan. I think it's pathetic for grown men to tell an 18 year olf they hope he tears his ACL just because he feels their rival school is the best place for him. I understand that all that is motivating him to want to beat Ohio State, but someone should be there guiding him telling him to act like a professional. Stuff like this WILL NOT fly when he gets to college next year.

The difference between how he is acting and how he should act lies in Bri'onte Dunn. Dunn wasn't a Michigan commit but many thought he was headed that way. After he committed to OSU he got a ton of crap from UM fans and was threatened similarly to Kalis. Have you heard a word from Dunn? Not even a peep. He handled his business, packed his bags for OSU, and will get it done on the field. That is how you do it.

I wish we had Kyle Kalis lining up on the o-line for us, but he feels Michigan is the best place for him so I say good luck to him. I am not losing sleep over this one though, as Urban will have plenty of good players coming into Columbus and with the way Kalis is acting right now (immaturely), I certainly don't mind that the yapping isn't happening on our end.

Hit the nail on the head with every point.

I really wanted him. Now I'll enjoy Noah Spence making him eat his words.

Let him keep talking. The more he yaps, the better. Urbz will slap it up onto the chalk board then you'll have about 80 pissed off players "drenched in red" ready to play lights-out in front of their home crowd. Besides, he probably won't even be playing next year.

Actually, the more i think about it, our guys will be so focused on revenge from 2011, that they won't even need trash-talking from a true freshman puppy-dog to help psych them up.

the rule i have always lived by is, if a guy has to tell everyone and advertise what a badass he is, he usually isnt much of a bad ass. its not the guy thumping bass-heavy music and acting all hardcore at stoplights that you have to worry about. its the guy singing hall and oates with the windows down that you need to be weary of, as he has nothing to prove. and is likely crazy.

I knew some Hall and Oates fans once, and I wouldn't mess with them either. Those were some soft spoken, bad-ass dudes.

Over the next 4 years he will learn to respect the Buckeyes.

No shit, sherlock.  Chances are you redshirt, and even if you dont you wont be on the field much.

Saw this on BP:

Kyle Kalis: "November 27th is going to be ugly." Game's on the 24th bro.


"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

But Kyle will still be sore on the 27th...  ;-p

I was thinking the same thing..."The Game" must not be that important to him if doesn't even know the date.  It may have been smarter to just say the last game in Nov. 

Funny thing is will he be a starter for UM?  I know the guy is good but is he a starter this season?

I foresee this as a nice motivational piece Urb puts up on the whiteboard for our salavating defense come Nov 27 24th.

He's just a kid, talking out his ass.  I could totally beat him up, though.

I hope Kalis does play in The Game this year. Kyle Kalis, meet John Simon, who doesn't have to tell us how much of a badass he is.

Does this kid know that his family will now have to move from Ohio based on the #$%^ he just said? After we beat them 4 straight years, Ohio will make them so miserable that they won't bear to stick around. What an idiot.

The kid has a screw loose and reminds me of Tony Mandarich...

I can appreciate the passion and youthful bravado.  If he were a Buckeye, I'd want him talking this trash about scUM.  I just would want him saying this stuff to his teammates in the locker room, not to some random blogger.  I think he's just trying to appeal to his fanbase and teammates, and I'm sure they love him for it.  Sort of reminds me of Brewster when he first joined the Bucks (from a leadership perspective at least), but with no tact.  Good luck Kyle.  May you enjoy the same success as Henne and Hart.
