Are these kids predisposed to the Griz, or is MSU just whiffing on their recruitment?
There’s always lots of different reasons kids choose programs. Facilities, educational opportunities, coaching staffs, friends on teams, etc....so who knows. I saw Owens had same offer from Cats and a Griz and both were after him pretty hard. Simpson is a legacy Cat but said he felt the Griz were after him harder and likes how he would be utilized there.

Maybe you didn’t read the articles. Both of these commits mentioned being attracted to the business school, and Owens in particular also liked the UM ties to Nike Corp as he would like to pursue a career with them. So yes, educational opportunities.

Nope, I didn't read the articles. I have better things to do with my time than read about non-MSU commits.

Gotta give it to Bobby, he's doing a good job of bullsh*tting his way around the crap education you will receive at UM. Business school? Please. I'd take MSU's business school any day over UM's, although I can say that at least it isn't UM's worst program. Nike? Pretty sure going to school at UM doesn't do a single thing to get you a job at Nike. MSU has some people that have worked their way into Nike too, but I don't think that does more than maybe get you an email when it comes to a job.

Strange, I wonder why the UM Business School is ranked #1 in the Big Sky and among the best in the nation according to US News and World Report 2019 Rankings, which got released in September. It was 100 spots higher than any other Montana institution. Can’t be that all that bad.

After going to the first page for the first time in awhile I just realized we hadn’t heard from Howard Ross in awhile. Is he still around?

Looks like he hasn’t been on here since early Aug.

There’s always lots of different reasons kids choose programs. Facilities, educational opportunities, coaching staffs, friends on teams, etc....so who knows. I saw Owens had same offer from Cats and a Griz and both were after him pretty hard. Simpson is a legacy Cat but said he felt the Griz were after him harder and likes how he would be utilized there.

What actual "ties" does um have to Nike besides both Craig & Scott Zanon, who both played basketball, and graduated from um? There is no inside track or grooming for students to get hired with Nike. Last I heard Scott doesn't even work for Nike anymore. Does Beavis Hack have the Zanon brothers on speed dial asking them to hire his student athletes at a Nike outlet store when they graduate? So these so called educational ties I'm gonna call BS on. Montana State must have "ties" with Apple and Netflix since some Montana State grads work at both of those companies, too. :roll:

Yes that big deal and having this guy as Chief Operating Officer doesn’t hurt. Don’t worry Team10, I don’t need your apology.

Plus there's barely any students going to school there so the student to faculty ratio is great! 8)

All of this QB talk on other threads, I have something to add. I know the Bobcats want to bring in another true freshman to keep the classes even and a potential transfer (senior or junior year of eligibility). If I were the coaching staff, I would go out and get Blake Thelen of Great Falls High and coach him up at QB because he has inherent talent throwing the football and making plays. His senior highlight film shows off an impressive arm and some good wheels to boot.

Don't even worry about bringing in another out-of-state freshman QB when you have Beltran/Bauman one year ahead. Go get Blake!

Agreed. I'd go with him and go after Jalen Chatman

Are these kids predisposed to the Griz, or is MSU just whiffing on their recruitment?
There’s always lots of different reasons kids choose programs. Facilities, educational opportunities, coaching staffs, friends on teams, etc....so who knows. I saw Owens had same offer from Cats and a Griz and both were after him pretty hard. Simpson is a legacy Cat but said he felt the Griz were after him harder and likes how he would be utilized there.

“Educational opportunities” :lol: :lol: :lol:
Maybe you didn’t read the articles. Both of these commits mentioned being attracted to the business school, and Owens in particular also liked the UM ties to Nike Corp as he would like to pursue a career with them. So yes, educational opportunities.
What actual "ties" does um have to Nike besides both Craig & Scott Zanon, who both played basketball, and graduated from um? There is no inside track or grooming for students to get hired with Nike. Last I heard Scott doesn't even work for Nike anymore. Does Beavis Hack have the Zanon brothers on speed dial asking them to hire his student athletes at a Nike outlet store when they graduate? So these so called educational ties I'm gonna call BS on. Montana State must have "ties" with Apple and Netflix since some Montana State grads work at both of those companies, too. :roll:
UM Business school has an internship program with Nike.
Yes that big deal and having this guy as Chief Operating Officer doesn’t hurt. Don’t worry Team10, I don’t need your apology.

I will admit I was unaware of the internship program with Nike. But if you think a COO gives a damn about a kid from the college he went to in an internship program...I wanna be on whatever it is that you're on. :lol:

Plus there's barely any students going to school there so the student to faculty ratio is great! 8)

I kid, I kid...
Yes that’s the part that worries me :)

Well this COO’s son, Cooper, played on the football team and he has direct ties into the internship program so there’s some influence.

Nope, I didn't read the articles. I have better things to do with my time than read about non-MSU commits.

Gotta give it to Bobby, he's doing a good job of bullsh*tting his way around the crap education you will receive at UM. Business school? Please. I'd take MSU's business school any day over UM's, although I can say that at least it isn't UM's worst program. Nike? Pretty sure going to school at UM doesn't do a single thing to get you a job at Nike. MSU has some people that have worked their way into Nike too, but I don't think that does more than maybe get you an email when it comes to a job.
Except Nike hires more UM business majors straight form college than any other school. Business majors also get to meet multiple executives from Nike and get specific internship opportunities. Sprunk is on campus usually 3 times a semester. You can hate on a lot of things with UM but their business school and connection to big corporations and intern opportunities is not one

Didn't know that, I admit. That's pretty cool. Surprised that UM doesn't get that information out better on something like that.
