TTUN sucks. The sooner high school athletes from M*chigan understand and accept that fact, the sooner they'll be able to move on to a program that they can succeed in.

I kind of hope this isn't true honestly.  The recruit walked out and said he didn't think highly of the coaching staff.  That is not a win by any means even if it does belittle Michigan.  

I have a hard time believing the Ohio State coaching staff being this ignorant and unprofessional.

The site I believe is ran by  a Uber Michigan fan that is either in high school or college.  Not citing sources makes me think garbage and just trying to slam Ohio State.  Of all of the positive reports on this site from recruits, parents of recruits, and parents of athletes makes me think there is absolutely nothing to see here.

Based on the other time this was written about, it seemed pretty clear to me that they exaggerated everything. I'll believe that UFM brought up *ichigan and our continued domination, but look at the *ichigan program now; it's hardly something we would brag about for 10 minutes, as the last article about this claimed. They're giving themselves way too much credit. Maybe if the school in question were Akron, Uconn, or App St., who are about on their level.

And if nothing else, it's extremely obvious the iPad point is exaggerated. Yes, Urban probably mentioned they're getting iPads, but the focus was most likely that they'll get it to learn the playbook, not to harp on the fact that they get a shiny new Apple product if they come to OSU. How is it believable to anyone that with the history and current elite level of play that OSU exhibits, the coaching staff has to resort to parading around a tablet as a primary selling point? Jealous people will hear what jealous people will hear (I'm talking on the writer here, not the recruit).

buckeye85's picture

I agree. The quote makes UFM sound like a desperate, stammering idiot.  "You guys will get on of these things, what do they call it? O yea, an Ipad, you get an Ipad!  We will make sure you get your own Ipad if you sign here.  No other school can promise you an Ipad but here you will get one even though you probably already have 3 in your home.  Don't worry about anything ever again because we will make sure you have an Ipad!" LMFAO..... I am sure someone as experienced as Meyer would go off on a desperate, blubbering rant about something that is not a big deal to try and get kids to commit. This article reeks of someone who knows nothing about the recruiting process and is just making something up on their mind that they would hope was true.

I shared this the other day, but bears repeating here since it's relevant to your post.

I happened to be in Toledo for a party the weekend after LOI day back in '12.  Being a sports fanatic, on the way up I found and tuned into a station out of dreary, bankrupt Detroit; 97.1 The Ticket (I think that was the station anyway, but that points irrelevant).  

Instead of callers calling in to celebrate a great  Michigan recruiting haul, they instead all obsessed over Urban "beating" them "at the last moment" (it was the flip and signing of Dontre Wilson I believe that did it if I recall correctly) in the final Rivals and 247 rankings.  

They demanded NCAA investigations claiming all sorts of nonsense from "payments and car keys", to "promises of a job" for this or that recruit, to some actually crying "the deck was stacked in favor of OSU".  Not kidding you.  Not 10 callers. Not 20.  Nearly all of them.

They were genuinely rabid and foaming at the mouth.

They're obsessed day-and-night about the mighty Buckeyes.

In addition to the “bashing of Michigan,” Meyer offered I-Pad’s to any player that signed withOhio State.
“‘If you come to Ohio State, we’ll make sure you guys get one of these [I-pads]. You guys all get an I-pad if you go to Ohio State. They [Ohio State coaches] said, ‘everybody that goes to Ohio State gets an I-pad, right away. We’ll make sure you get one.’”

Every student athlete for Ohio State gets an iPad. There was a freshman in my dorm last year who was on the pistol team and even he had an iPad.

It's kinda funny because when he was asked to help recruit kids when he went to the junior Olympic qualifying, one of the things the high schoolers really liked was the fact that they got iPads.

Klytus21's picture

Yes, this posted a while ago and it was bullshit then.

70+ players (and families) in attendance. Only one player was willing to go on the record about the meeting

After the visit ended and everything sank in, Anonymous talked to a few fellow recruits.
“The guys I talked to didn’t like the atmosphere. 

Bullshit.  These are highly recruited players all of which will not be playing for Ohio State.  Did UFM threaten them to keep quiet?  They are high school kids on Twitter and FB.  No way only Anonymous would be they only one with the balls to talk.

The real question is how many of those top-level recruits choose to go to Ohio State based on just the negative talk and I-Pads?

He'd suggest they go the the $EC and get a visit from The Bag Man.

Can't quite agree with that. If the Ohio State staff were making its pitch to 70 top-ranked recruits from across the country - presumably including kids from Jersey, Texas, Florida, etc. - and they spent half the time talking about Michigan, that probably wouldn't score high in terms of marketing value. But recognizing this problem is also a big tip off that the blog post and "Anonymous" are completely f-o-s.

A reliable source of mine threw a barbecue at her house in Dearborn, Michigan last weekend. Anonymous was there, along with about 30 other kids. My source said that, at one point, Anonymous disappeared, so she figured that Anonymous had just bolted from the party.

Later on, though, my source went upstairs in her house to get some sunscreen and she discovered that Anonymous was up there in her bedroom. Anonymous was perched up on her frilly canopy bed watching old "glory days" Youtube videos of Michigan football in the 1980s. The weirdest part, though, was that Anonymous was wearing my source's lingerie, mascara, and lipstick!

So, I'd take what Anonymous has to say about Ohio State with a grain of salt.

I just dont see Urban and the staff putting so much work into driving home a point our boys have driven home for the last decade plus. Im sure these kids have watched the games. Its not hard to find footage. And why, in a room full of kids from all over the country, would they focus on something extremely regional? This just smacka of homerism. It would be no different than me writing a blog stating a recruit went to TSUN for a visit, and all he heard about was how the donuts, buffets and burger jointa in Ann Arborblow away the quakity of those in Columbus. I dont buy thia one bit.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

I'm all for a good bashing of TTUN, just like most any Buckeye fan.  And it's not like the things that Urban was alleged to have said were not true at least to some extent, if not completely.   However, there's a time and place for that kind of thing, and recruiting is not one of those times.  Telling these kids why not to go to TTUN doesn't really help them figure out why they should go to OSU.  It's not a good approach to take.  And Urban is a great recruiter, which is exactly why I don't believe this.  Exaggerated at least, if not a flat out lie.

Doubt there is much truth to this. Does OSU negative recruit against UM? Probably. They should. Their staff isn't developing the talent they've gotten so far. Do they spend entire meetings doing it with 70+ recruits & their families in attendance, I highly, HIGHLY doubt that. UFM has a psych degree & is a master of mind games. I doubt he's so dumb that he doesn't know that most people hate that sort of negativity. This reeks of pure horseshit. 

Write a negative story about Ohio State & get a million hits to your shitty blog that no-one ever heard of - so mission accomplished for these folks. Anyone can have a blog & anyone can say they got a story from an anonymous source.

While I'm not ruling out the possibility that there was some exaggeration within the article, it is possible that there is some truth in it.  I listened to a recruiting pitch when I was in high school that was contrary to what I had been taught and I was instantly turned off to the idea of playing football for that coach.  It is possible that the kid responded negatively to the negative recruiting.  He most likely has spent his football career in positive coaching environment.

I write for an online magazine called "Anonymous Weekly". We strive for truth in all things!

Anyway, you guys have to hear this one. Next week we are leading with a story about Brady Hoke! An anonymous recruit recently went on an unofficial visit to scUM and he reported that while on campus, "Hoke downloaded a donut wallpaper onto all 4 of the school's original iPads. The iPads were old and worn, but the school uses them to watch this old video of some guy named Tim Biakabutuka who had a flukey game against Ohio State one year back before I was even born. Anyway, Hoke forgot that the donuts were a wallpaper and ended up eating every last one of the iPads. He then collapsed onto the floor and sobbed audibly in between punching himself in the abdomen and repeatedly saying 'fat, fat, go away, please find somewhere else to lay'. The whole thing was very sad to witness. After about 25 minutes of this, Hoke rolled over onto his back and said 'when they find out that I ate these doo-hickies again, they're going to fire me! I didn't even want to coach the soccer team...or football... whatever you call it! I thought I was being hired to coach the billiards team! Please don't tell anyone what you saw here today.' The equipment manager said this is the fourth time he has done this since last March. I think it's safe to say that I won't be attending UM."

As you all can see, this is totally truly true! I hope you all enjoy next week's edition of "Anonymous Weekly"!

If anonymous isn't going to Ohio State then why not say his name - other UM commits have had NO problem calling Urban and OSU out. But none ever mentioned the negative speeches. power points and cheap shots. And to waste all that energy on 70 recruits from around the country who could probably care less about Michigan seems to be the epitome of a waste of time..I don't know...again, is this some sort of class project?
