I wasn't disparaging anyone's work here at 11W
or intending any kind of disrespect what so ever but if you are trying to pretend that recruiting updates on a daily basis hasn't changed you are being disingenuous. I've been following recruiting since 2001 and I've gone through the gauntlet of recruiting sites. I've found a nice home here at 11W and it will always be my go to but no matter where Birm goes I'll still read his work provided it's not pay walled. 11W develops writers just like OSU developes players. Just because they move on it doesn't mean we can't still support them. By the way you are completely overreacting over a joke that was tongue in cheek.
I'm loyal to 11W. I'm even rocking their track tee right now. I don't see any problem directing people to Birm until his replacement arrives. This place has been quiet as a mouse fart since he left. Once things go back to normal I say F every other site.
I've been following 11W for a long time now. One of the things I noticed that in situations like this when comments are used like "drifted apart" or "the staff decided to go in another direction" it usually means there was a character issue with the recruit. More often then not that recruit ends up having issues at the school they end up choosing. So have some faith in Thad. Remember where the program was before he got here.

Who is the Crystal Ball leader for Birm in regards to which site he's going to flip to? Rivals?
I remember Bobby Bowden saying things started to go downhill when he started taking more out of state players than in state players because the out of state kids didn't have state pride. He said in the beginning the in state kids which were the majority set the tone for the rest of the team. I'm not sure that's why things started going bad for Bowden but I found that theory interesting.

I was impressed with Keandre's highlights. There is a lot to like about him. I do think he needs a year under Mick before he sees playing time at LB.
