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

I'm pretty sure we do since we hold something like a 25-4 edge over you guys in players both schools have offered and haven't commited to either school yet.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Wait, you really think that having 500 more 3* ranked kids because they have move up 500 2* kids, from 2008-2012, hasn't helped MSU in some regards?
Even Saban can't flip a player that late in the proces. I do like your logic that it makes Dantonio better because Hoke can't flip Dantonio's guys. Congrats that you can hold onto commitments. That's like bragging about being better than Purdue. When we're going head to head and a player hasn't commited to either school yet we'll win almost every time.

Does it bother you that MSU has gotten closer to flipping a UM commit under Hoke than the opposite?
laconophilia is everywhere...
What are you talking about? Drake Harris is the only player between the two schools who could flip.

I thought it was more than that. I am grabbing something to eat and can look more into it in when I get back, but there have been a ton of Michigan commits with MSU offers at many positions.
Can you demonstrate that the number of 2* players has gone down? For that matter, how do you know that number of 3* players has increased?
At one point it was something like 23-6 or something. I don't think the disparity is quite as large anymore.
MSU has gotten a couple of WRs that we've offered. I'll give them that.
He hasn't even decommitted yet.
A certain David Dawson decommitted from UM, and was rumored to have MSU as his leader before a tail-between-his-legs Hoke came back to re-offer him.
It should be the first graph on the page.
In 2008 there were 868 3* kids and 1,473 2* kids
It has shifted to this in 2012, 1,337 3* kids and 987 2* kids.
A shift of about 500 kids from 2* to 3*.
You're so kind.
We have cooler colors.
I cannot figure out where UM gets so much urine. MSU dairy farms must be supplying it.
So the more frosh that you have impact means the class outperformed others that didn't?
Hmmm... not sure that's correct there chief
I then showed you Scout's average ranking and that data says the same thing..
Waiting on your rebuttal there..
Edit here ya go.. 3 of the 4 highest Dantonio classes have been since Hoke has been at UM..

Ehhhh, to an extent. Ease up on the kool aid a bit. They outperformed them last year, sure. You have to realize that it may be a combination of RR leftovers not transitioning well/hoke just wants his guys to get PT/hokes guys actually earned the PT. dantonio is fortunate to not need to rely on true/redshirt frosh as much as we have. I'll wait until hokes first class completes their college careers, giving a good side by side comparison with dantonios, before making any claims. JMO
You have a problem if Michigan's yellow is the color of your urine.
A lot of schools have green and white, but no one else has maize and blue.

To be fair, you don't have maize and blue either.
I would expect that average to trend upwards the longer dantonio sticks around, especially considering his success compared to the previous dumpster fire head coaches. I think recruiting is his biggest weakness. Not that he's bad, it's just that he's been better at or improved just about everything, other than recruiting. I swear you guys have always hovered around 30 or so (national ranking) for recruiting classes.
After doing research, the disparity is 26-6. If you took away offers after a player commited, then it would be 26-4.
That was funny when he recommited to Michigan. Sparty message boards melted down.
