    You guys just nabbed a 1st round draft pick and one of USA’s alternate captains at the last world juniors from the portal. Add to that your great incoming class and a strong returning core and I think you guys will be an NCAA tourney team and be a force in the conference next season. I am absolutely amazed by how quickly Nightingale has turned things around. I love to see it!

      Already very excited for October.
      100% agree. Guarantee you there were dozens of schools after Howard and Savage too.

          I think Michigan State will be Top 3 next season.

            He's not official yet but expect Joey Larson from NMU to join this list.

                Not sure why you’re willing to die on this hill. Any newly hired coach worth his salt (see: Carvel; Borek; Barr) is going to cut legacy, deadweight players after he’s had a season to evaluate. Nightingale just went through the process and as a result, a lot of juniors/seniors have seen the writing on the wall and hit the road. Where else are you going to get mature reinforcements?

                BTW, as far as local boy Larson goes, MSU has recently "given" 3 players to NMU: Keefer; Papp; and Gallacher. Seems like a fair swap to me. #theportalgivethandtheportaltakethaway

                • Joey Larson is now in. Portal points-leader from Northern.

                  • Nightingale must not think much of Cole’s recruits. This is a far more effective strategy. The best thing about this is that he’s likely improving the team without having to wait for his stud recruits to come of age. It’s also interesting how many of these guys want to come to MSU when most could go almost anywhere.

                    • I am going to laugh myself out of Van Andel when MSU loses again. Ok let me serious. Nightingale is adding Briere from the portal just because why stop now

                          That probably has a lot to do with it.

                          Cole was having a rough time on the recruiting trail toward the end of his run at MSU, and a bunch of those kids would probably be coming in next season if Cole were still here. Most of them don't seem to be lighting the world on fire in juniors.

                          (And by "Cole was having a rough time on the recruiting trail," I probably mean Joe Exter. I think he was doing all of the recruiting toward the end.)

                          • and Exter was the problem, so many really good players in Juniors from Michigan. He would wait and then take a lesser player.

                            • I’m surprised you all aren’t talking about Jared DeMichiel here more. Nightingale had done a lot but DeMichiel is an absolute monster recruiter

                                This is definitely true. I hope we can keep him for many years but I have a feeling he will be a head coach somewhere sooner than later unless he simply doesn’t want to be.
