When Photoshops Go Wrong in Football Recruiting

Over the last year we’ve seen the Kentucky coaching staff do a lot of things in the recruiting front that have never been done before at UK.  They’ve walked through snowstorms, gone to Ohio and snaked prospects from Urban Meyer, and have kept the best instate players home.

Part of the reason Stoops has been so successful is because of the special attention they are giving to these young players.  Matt Elam received 182 letters from UK in one day.  They gave Eli Brown the gigantic poster above to cover up all of the Florida colors in his room.  Hell, the team has new grey uniforms but the only people that have worn them are visiting recruits.

All of the big stunts have seemed to work so far, keeping Elam and Brown in the Bluegrass State, but in trying to pull off a similar stunt, Ohio State and Michigan have forced their proverbial feet into their own mouths.  Mike Weber is a consensus Top 10 Running Back in the 2015 class from Detroit that has found himself in the middle of a battle between the Big 10’s biggest rivals (but he’s no Damien Harris).  Last week Weber received the piece of mail below from Michigan.

“Wolverines are proud to be Amercians.” (@mikeweber25)

OK so it’s one typo.  We missppelll things all of the time at KSR; we can turn the other cheek.  But what isn’t forgivable is that the Buckeyes couldn’t learn from their rival’s failure. This was DMed to Weber a week later from an OSU coach.

I hear Coach Zoolander over at the “Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too” is school #3 on Weber’s list.

    Michigan’s is for real. The OSU is a fake made by a Michigan fan after the first one surfaced. http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/2014/05/36067/ohio-state-didnt-misspell-deliver-fake-recruiting-photo-mike-weber

      I was going to type the same thing. Ohio State’s graphics come from one person, and one person only. It doesn’t have his signature or Urban Meyer’s signature which is their standard practice.

      FAKE FAKE FAKE

    It’s not a big deal, but when you consider the Big Ten Conference has twelve teams, they don’t do maf well either.

      “You tell the SEC when they can learn to read and write, then they can figure out what we’re doing,” OSU President Gee said when asked by a questioner how to respond to SEC fans who say the Big Ten can’t count because it now has 14 members.

      They won’t have 14 until 07/01/14. Currently they have *12*

    I always thought “Big House” was slang for prison.

    I know it’s a minor deal, but isn’t it a violation for the school to photoshop a recruit into team gear? The Eli Brown picture has him in his high school uniform, but Michigan puts him in UM gear.

    Maybe there’s a work around on this rule, or maybe they just got rid of it. I just remember people getting hot and bothered when fans would put together photoshops claiming it was a violation.

      “C’Mon” the one you claim is fake is not the one of him in college gear.
