We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Urban Meyer is the best recruiter in the B1G. You can say that last year's Penn State scandal helped him. However, he was able to snag Jamal Marcus, Taylor Decker, Sevan Pittman and Kyle Dodson at the end. None of them had anything to do with the Penn State situation. He vaulted the OSU class to #1 in the B1G with only a short amount of time to recruit. Any other school in the B1G could have gone after the PSU kids that Urban got too. Urban was just better. He is again sitting on the #1 class in the B1G. He also addressed needs at DB, LB, WR. It would have been great to take another OT (really like the two we did get though), but other than that, this class it as complete as it gets.
You have got to be crazy!!! You didn't even know who Hoke was a few years ago.
How do you feel about Urbans recruiting now?? Better? or Worse? haha..

Just speaking for Michigan, our class was already full by the time crap hit the fan. I don't know about other B1G schools, but Urban definitely benefited simply by having the available scholarships to take in so many PSU flips.
What's up bro? You still feel the same today?
We are coming for you Bama!
Are you kidding me? Who's recruiting class finished higher overall last year? Who is killing it today, and who has been a non factor? Joke isn't half the recruiter my boy Urb is.
Again I didn't bring up coaching ability, your buckeye friend did. I just responded. Not sure what you don't understand.
Does beating Nick Saban for the #1 QB, and Urbie for the #1 TE while under the worst sanctions in history, have something to do with recruiting?
I'm not saying that Urban isn't a good recruiter or a good coach. What are you getting so upset about?
At the end of the day, let Hoke be the best recruiter (which no one would agree with) because the only stat that matters is:
Urban Meyer - 1-0
Brady Hoke - 0-1
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
We should heed the words of the great Lou Holtz, who said on ESPN today: "You can't win a National Championship without great players. But great players won't win a National Championship without great coaching."
In February we can all take comfort in the Potential our favorite teams acquired today. Lots of great high school players in the news on NLOI Day. But in September, those players won't experience Success unless they've got great coaching. Today's a fun day for recruiting fans, but it's a little early to declare winners. Potential and Success are NOT the same thing.
'We are attacking that like animals right now.'
How does crow taste?
Raise your hand if you thought that PSU would be in the top 30 in recruiting this year with scholarship limits and having to sell kids to come to the program and sit 3 years before even having a shot at a bowl. If your hand is raised, you are FOS. BOB was on his way to (easily) a top 10 class before the sanctions hit. He is one hell of a recruiter.
He couldn't do that in the shower. Hoke's sheer weight would pull half the house down.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
BTW, this thread just shows the extreme stupidity of a skunkbear.
Wilson - Clark - Bell.
Nobody is better in the biz. (Unless we're talking about closing restaurants.)
This thread = fail.
The dv's answered my question.

Haha.... Hoke isnt worried about recruiting.. or rankings or any of that nonsense...
I said that many pages ago...plenty of lulz though. The OP dissapeared right after their Bama debacle too.
Congrats, you are one of three B1G teams that decided to recruit this year. Rest of B1G
You had an offer out to Armani Reeves before he committed to OSU.
I dont recall flipping any PSU recruits?? If this is his point.... epic fail
Not sure who the "he" is that you're referring to, but if "he" is talking about flipping PSU recruits, it was about last year - Schutt, Williams, Reeves, O'Connor and Spence (not a commit, but was coming to PSU pre-Sandusky).
Love how yall count Spence. What were we supposed to do? Urbs had six weeks to fill a class. He's a vulture, I thought this was known. He's a damn good vulture at that.
Reeves was an OSU vs Michigan battle, so you had at least one spot you were willing to give to him.
Urbz is clearly the best big name recruiter in the B1G, track record and everything else to prove it. We will see what happens on the field, but Urban puts the best on-paper classes every year. He's a dynamic recruiter.
Hoke is clearly second best, and Mattison is darn good himself.
Mattison may be the best recruiter of any assistant coaches in the country.
Bill without sanctions gives Hoke a run for his money for the number 2 spot.
