I seriously underestimated how much of a tool you are.
Interesting to see how long Woody leaves the board for once that happens?
Frank C. is a pretty good poster on the Michigan board and he had these numbers in regards to Meyer trying to topple Saban.
"In 2009, Urban Meyer's Florida team had the following players in its 2 deep:
- QB Tim Tebow
- TE Aaron Hernandez (Pro-Bowl)
- C Maurkice Pouncey (Pro-Bowl)
- OG Mike Pouncey
- WR Riley Cooper
- LB Brandon Spikes
- CB Major Wright
- DE Carlos Dunlap
- DE Jermaine Cunningham
- CB Joe Haden
- WR Chris Rainey
- S Will Hill
- CB Ahmad Black
- CB Janoris Jenkins
I'm probably forgetting a few names but that's at least 14 current NFL players from the 2009 Florida team who play (or have played meaningful snaps) at the pro level.
The 2009 team did not have Percy Harvin or Louis Murphy from the 2008 team but it was was one year older.
That 2009 team lost 32-13 to Alabama.
It is unlikely that Meyer's future Ohio teams will be more loaded then his Florida teams. He built his Florida teams when Bobby Bowden was a lame duck coach at FSU and while Miami suffered through Randy Shannon. In other words, he was able to snag more Florida talent with less competition from in-state rivals.
After Meyer's 2009 team was beaten convincingly 32-13 in the 2009 SEC Title game and after Meyer's 2010 team was crushed 31-6 in Tuscaloosa, the Saban-Alabama dynasty forced Urban Meyer into early retirement.
Thankfully, Michigan's bread and butter is similar to Alabama's pro-style which gave Meyer/Florida so much trouble.
While Ohio fans are probably convinced that Meyer/Ohio will run the B1G, I think they should avoid being overconfident."
It cracks me up how much woodson gets to you guys. Intentional or not, he trolls the shit out of the MSU posters on here.
Edit: Some of the MSU posters, not all.

Good to see that pesky 5 loss season isn't slowing down Hoke's arrogance
He said when he told U-M coach Brady Hoke about having to play at Michigan State in 2013 and 2014, Hoke responded the way he expected.
“Brady said, ‘They’ve got a field, it’s 100 yards long, there are goalposts at either end; we’re going to be just fine, not a big deal,’” Brandon recalled. “We can win there as easily as we can win at home.”
For those worried about Michigan playing football at Ohio State and Michigan State in the same season, it's probably not changing anytime soon.
We're #1! We're #1!
And how is that being arrogant exactly?
I am sure it would be different if Dantonio made a similar statement. Smh, you are something else.
[May Recruiting Trophy]
“We can win there as easily as we can win at home.”
Is arrogant for a number of reasons, least of which UM hasn't beaten MSU on the road since 2007
How is it, after two 11-win seasons, you guys can't manage to sniff the top 25 even once? NW wins 10 games and a bowl game and they immediately move into the top 25. Sanction handicapped PSU is in the top 25. Even Kentucky and Vanderbilt are in the top 25. How is the B10 going to regain some respect as a football conference if 2/3 of the little 10 keeps recruiting at the level of CUSA?

Are we assuming that fans will actually show up to MSU games this year?
Did they move signing day to May?
Depends if it's raining
You guys might want to lobby for that. An earlier signing date would leave less time for your verbal commits to cancel their reservations every year.
Damn, that is with only 9 recruits. Should add a 10th on the 26th.
Yet somehow, those "leftovers" have smoked UM four of the last five years AND won a B1G Title and B1G Division title.
Much be a hell of a coaching job going on in EL.
Meh, you are counting the RR era. Those three years obviously don't count.
That can't be. We were told that they don't take commitments unless the kid is 100% committed. Well we were told that before Pittman, Benecoch, Harris...
I think you have a point.
They've won a B1G Division title.
And look at how well that turned out for Pittman..
We'll see how it turns out for the others
You're assuming, of course, that those rankings are significant. While you continuously tout the advantages of having a top 10 class, I haven't seen any evidence of top 25 classes being advantageous.
laconophilia is everywhere...
Still beat every other top tier team on our B1G schedule that year.
They were committed. We pulled their offers due to academic issues. I'm glad they could find spots at some fairly decent schools.
This issue has been thoroughly discussed and settled in this thread. Please see Sprocky's Rule.
Looks like Peppers isn't visiting PSU this weekend.
