This is one michigan fan who loves that his seat is hotter than hell, at least I hope...no faith in pizza boy...
Understatement of the century, at least the competent michigan fans...not the dumb ass lloyd carr loyalists.
Then you would be sorely mistaken.
Gus Malzhan is actually a pretty good dude most stories are correct...reminds me a of Mark Richt without the tenure. Could all be a front I suppose.
High school junior changes his mind on where he wants to attend college...is obviously a loser...
UM AD would had to have called them twice before for this to be possible, and according to many sources he did not...sooooooo....yeah...
UM v. neuter lame is on NBC since it is in south bend.
Marcelys and Thompson never received offers from UM...
These are all the Scholarship players offered by both schools since Urban Meyer has been at Ohio State...

I would say Hoke is holding his own on the recruiting trail against a rival head coach with multiple national championships, multiple conference championships, multiple BCS wins, and multiple NFL draft picks.
Am I saying that Urban is not one of the best recruiters in college football, no way...that would be idiocy. However, people who say "Hoke can't recruit with Urban," that is just not true.
Have fun eternally competing in a sub par conference then, with a terrible SOS.
I want OSU and MSU to pull the best talent they can get year in and year out. This conference needs it, along with better coaching. These are the only things that will bring us back to being a national player as a conference again.
Actually I am in the camp of Hoke needing to go, but it is not for his recruiting "problems." If he turns it around after this year I will eat my words, but he was a stopgap hire when he got here and he is still that to this day. I like Brady, and I think he is a genuinely good person, but he is not the right man for the University. I hope they find a new coach at seasons end when they finish what I project to be a 7-6 season.
Nick Saban will get whoever Nick Saban wants 90% of the time. I was one of the few UM fans who said after he postponed his announcement that he was going to Bama. Not too surprising.
I would just like to point out that too this date a coach who barely has a .500 record, with no BCS conference championships, or national championships is keeping up with your coach that has double the NC and how many SEC titles and BCS bowl victories?
That is not a fluke, Hoke can recruit with the best of them. Saying anything otherwise is ignorance.
That argument actually does not work out very well in this scenario. Very few UM grads living in Detroit comparably speaking, for obvious reasons haha.
Maybe that is the case, nothing to be ashamed of. It is just a practice. don't understand why someone would want to pay 5$ to go watch a bunch of bench warmers for the most part practice.
If it was a scrimmage against another school, you can bet TBH would be filled up just like a normal game day. No doubt in my mind.
I dont think you can say whether or not I would lose the bet unless you took a census of the population at the OSU spring game reffering to distance drove. I don't know what a meatchicken is, but I live in Westerville, Ohio and have lived in AA and I can say without a doubt that the obsession here is palpable on a day in day out basis...it is all anyone thinks about, probably due mostly to lack of other professional franchises in the city. Not saying that is a bad thing, it is just different than it is in AA and Michigan as a whole. You could place braxton miller on a toilet in the middle of the shoe and draw a crowd of 25,000 to watch him drop a deuce. Not saying a bad thing, it would just never work that way in Michigan.
The important statistic when it comes to fan turn out is during the ACTUAL season, and both of our schools are tops in the nation at fan attendance per season. I don't get why this, "Our school drew more fans to a practice than yours did" debate is so hot. Genuinely not trying to ruffle feathers, just trying to understand where the continuation of this lambasted argument comes from.
Understandable, and that's awesome that you are so dedicated. Just stating I would wager a majority of the fans at the OSU spring game were from the central Ohio area, >80% I would bet.
I'm not so sure about that. He competed in the best conference in the nation with a lot less talent...PSU will be above .500 as long as he is there I think. He is a great coach.
He pulled in the top prospect of any school in the B1G, number 2 player in the nation ,coming off a horrible year...yeah he is pretty bad...lulz
I am a UM fan and I honestly don't know what all the hype is about spring football, I would never waste my time going to a professional or collegiate spring practice, let alone spend money to go. I mean the write up says it all, this OSU team will be nothing like it was today when the Buckeyes travel to visit Maryland. I think the biggest difference between the two schools in correlation with spring football practice attendance is the UM fan base comes from all corners of the state as AA is a much smaller community, OSU could easily fill the shoe with OSU fans residing in Columbus. Not to many people are going to drive 1-2+ hours to watch glorified practice, especially on the first nice day after one of the harshest winters in Michigan history.
