You just said Braylon Edwards was not an elite college WR. Everything you said up until and after this point in time is now rendered meaningless.
The BCS got killed off and we have a playoff because of the controversy for who would play in the National Championship game.

My point is: some/most MSU fans are likely to think this is a recruiting win for MD. I just wanted to point out, that couldnt be further from the truth.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
Nice pickup for Izzo.
MD beat hoke

So Dantonio needed another coach's help just to get his first recruiting win for MSU over Michigan this year.

Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
We were a play away last year, and a stupid tiebreaker rule the year before
Shane Jones had a Michigan offer. but i guess it wasn't "committable" since he chose MSU
So did aaron burbridge, monty madaris, and demetrius cox.

Izzo beat Hoke. I'll give you that.
Eccentially, are you saying MD needed Izzos help?
And because of the joke of the orange bowl and sugar bowl. Everyone in the nation realized that the games were meaningless. along with the outcry from T. Boone Pickens
So you guys still haven't made a BCS bowl! I'm so surprised with all the awesome seasons you guys have had for the last ten years!
This encapsulates Walmart Wolverine "logic" better than anything else could:
If he goes to UM, it's a win for Hokey Pokey, but if he doesn't, it's just some kind of anomaly.
And while Izzo is the biggest draw of the 4 potential coaches between the 2 schools, Dantonio's actual results place him firmly in 2nd place. And this IS a huge win for Dantonio, Harris will be an elite college WR.
I don't think we can discount the 5 star bust rate for UM football players either...not to mention the decades long history of playing well below recruiting and preseason rankings in Ann Arbor.
Shane Jones was told not to visit by the coaching staff. Burbridge may not even qualify, but the others simply chose MSU over Michigan. If you want I can pull up the recruits that had MSU offers but chose Michigan.
Sure alot of Michigan commits had MSU offers. MIchigan is getting good players. Burbridge is qualifying. Jones was told not to visit because Hoke knew he was going to MSU. Same way Hoke never offered Jon Reschke, because he knew he was going to MSU. Same way Hoke will probably pull Drake Harris's scholarship
Well, do you think Dantonio stands a chance against Hoke by himself? Looks like MD already has Izzo working on Malik McDowell for him too.
Did he have Izzo's help when he beat Hoke on the FIELD last year?
1. Jones was told not to visit because Michigan was full on LBs already
2. Reschke was not deserving of a Michigan offer, so he wasn't offered. Do you think Hoke is afraid of going against MSU "locks?" He got 2 FHH kids last year, a MSU "pipeline."
3. Hoke will not pull Harris' offer, in fact he will probably keep recruiting him until he signs his LOI. Plus, Harris hasn't committed to MSU yet has he?
This reasoning illustrates the missteps in logic that you weasels seem to have fallen under. I truly believe that the majority of your fanbase values "recruiting victories" as highly as it does any other kind of victory; that is the only explanation as to why the entire lot of you would quickly fall in line with, "Well MD didn't BEAT Hoke for this recruit; it was just Izzo beating Beilein, who didn't even offer Drake a scholarship. So really, none of your guys BEAT any of ours".
Do you not see the stupidity of your argument?
Sigh. 10% and doesn't even know it
IDK about the others, but Hoke didn't take Shane Jones because he already had two better LBs in this years' class.
That is the lesser of the two battles now in the minds of the Michigan fan. Why beat them on the field just once, when you can beat them 20 times over in the recruiting arena?
There were articles on here that actualyl had quotes from coaches saying that they didn't want to offer because he's an MSU lock and it's a waste of time. I guess the #5 player in the state isn't good enough for hoke
Then why did he offer him?
Please link them for me. Michigan's LB commits from 2012 and 2013 are all better than Reschke save Kaleb Ringer.
