MSU football: Tracking Spartan recruits

Here is a look at how some of Michigan State’s verbally committed football players performed this weekend.

A notable performer is linebacker Jon Reschke of Birmingham Brother Rice. His team blanked Warren De La Salle 28-0. If you didn’t know De La Salle features five-star Michigan quarterback recruit Shane Morris.

Reschke had 13 tackles, including 2 1/2 sacks in the win. Detroit Free Press prep guru Mick McCabe noted Reschke’s performance as one of the most impressive in the state for Week 4.

        He John, stay in Ark, you can’t come back to the B1G, nobody would want you to tell them a thing because we don’t smile after getting blown out 52-0

        Since you’ve chosen to dis my request for minimally civilized correspondence, please improve the world by sodomizing yourself with a running chain saw. Rest assured, no one will miss you.

          Uncalled for was being civil, I am a lot older than most folks. Unless you are over 50 I am old enough to be your father.

            Sonny boy, I say USMCSpartan(Retired – to spell it out for the illiterate) for a reason. I was graduating from high school when you were still holding on to your mother’s apron strings.

    So Chris, what your re-tweeted article from Forbes says is that broadcasters who did the Spartan game on Sat night can influence the reputation of a program so that kids don’t go there? So that the schools lose a competitive advantage? So that team famous for being famous goes to the sugar bowl? I’ve never heard of the lawyer or his organization, but my comment is DUH! That would seem to be intuitively obvious to the most casual observer of college football in the State of Michigan. Every time they rant and rave about dreadlocks being all that against DII talent, they are influencing money people. If little herbie and his ilk says how nifty shifty dreadlockes is they should also say how average he is against REAL DI talent. How many times over the next weeks will any talking head remind the listening/watching audience of the slaughter in Texas on Labor Day Weekend? (and yes, I’m talking to you btn – I don’t expect the Drunk to do it, he’s paid not to do it) If you keep telling people with IQ’s less than 100 (59% of the football watching public) something over and over again, it becomes perceived truth, if you tell them the same thing from a TV or the internet, for that matter, it’s gospel.

    • avatar behind the green curtain says:

      That is why btn needs someone with MSU experience on his resume to level the playing field.

    • avatar behind the green curtain says:

      You just made my case son.

      • avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

        No, BTN needs somebody who knows something about college football and is a Spartan. Not somebody who takes Top Ten talent and loses to geographic schools and then gets shellacked 52-0. (Even Paris Hilton scored on the Elephants) See, sonny boy, that’s reality, what you espouse is Housewives from Little Rock.

        • avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

          I’m not sure why it is, but these tussles I get into on here are always like these dolts are bringing a parring knife to a LAW fight.

          • avatar Spartan 81 says:

            Thats because you are engaged in a battle of wits with an unarmed man.

          • avatar USMCSpartan(Ret.) says:

            Just heard that Goldgirl will be judging Curtain/JLS all fall to see if Spartans want him around the B1G when he gets let go in LR. The most immediate answer would seem to be NO, why would you want another clown on your network when you have BowTie and Timmie? (And that’s not clown in a good way, either)

    nice article on Demetrius Cooper, definitely sponge-worthy.

    Folks, the link is in the twitter section next to Chris’s oval face.

    I like this thread and the fact that you provide it on a regular basis. I would suggest you (and Solari) add what you believe to be [sic., are] the implications.
