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

What people don't seem to be saying is how Hoke was trying to get the same players that Meyer got from that PSU scandal.
If that was the case, we would have football on this board to talk about. Go look at the other threads and show me where those fanbases are talking about football.
Meyer doesn't think Ohio first, he thinks nationally first. Doing well in Columbus isn't a measure of how good a recruiter one is.
I have yet to figure out what "Brady Hoke" is using to base his opinion that the real Brady Hoke is a better recruiter. He is all about the rankings but in the one completed class that was 2012 in which they went head to head at their new schools, Meyer and OSU had the higher ranking class. The OSU class this year is going to be rated lower due to the scholorship limitations due to the NCAA sanctions. Being in the top 5 classes with these restrictions is pretty darn good in my book. I think Hoke is doing an excellent job but it is a little premature to rank him ahead of Meyer who has proven himself at Florida and now at OSU.
Good call. This thread is classic.
Love this one
Hahah wow this thread is awesome. LMAO at the TTUN fans and their predictions. Urban straight owning Hoke.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
Ah, how can you say that? Who's ranked ahead of who?
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Give that about 15 minutes.
The Ol' Bielemonster is going to make a surprise in the rankings.
Going for 29th instead of 34th this year
Funniest post ever! Thanks for the laugh even four months later.
This thread is funny. Was there ever any doubt? Urban versus Hoke.. One coach is mad and about to close with some elite kids & the other cant find his headset.
Well, PSU will be holding onto Hack and Breneman. Neither really thought about leaving. They both got a pretty good idea what an O'Brien offense can do.
Billy is a top 2 recruiter without question IMO. People forget, even after the Sandusky stuff broke and pre sanctions, PSU was well on its way to a top 10-top 12 type class. Dorian Johnson, Ross Douglass, Will Fuller, Bradshaw who is a UVA verbal; Webb (UNC) were all in the class and there were three others very very close to pulling the trigger.
I will be stunned if PSU doesn't get one of its former verbals back in the fold soon.
I will be stunned if PSU has a top 20 class in the foreseeable future. With the exception of to 2 PA bred homers, elite recruits don't want any part of that stigmatism. Not trying to be mean, but your 8-4 COY who lost at home to a MAC school, isn't going to get the sympathy vote from an 18 year old kid, period. bOB will have better luck poaching Temple 2 stars. Won't matter cause he NFL gone in a year.
You are a dumb azz. please stop embracing UM fans.
You scUM fans were so right!!! What's going on with our recruiting!!?!!!?!??. Idiots.
only because of the Sandusky scandal did urban swing such a strong class last year

And what he did with looming sanctions at tOSU.
So you're saying
I can dig it.
Well, check out the composite rankings right now. PSU is #36 with only 13 commits (no team ahead of them has equal or less # of commits). Because of EE's, PSU can take 20 kids this year. We have heard some good things from high 3 stars and even a couple of 4 stars still left on the board. I'm not saying that we will get them, but it is looking like a stronger than predicted finish. We will see... a top 25 ranking is not impossible.
BTW, we have received 5 verbals since the sanctions were announced, and they are all 3 stars. So you are off base.

Lol @ anyone ranking the err um joke above UFM3.
Face it, Michigan hired a second tier coach who could hardly win in a non bcs conference meanwhile tOSU hired a superstar. The joke is 100% out classed in every aspect of the game.
The current sanctions on OSU would have little to no effect on their recruiting.
