    OSU fans threaten Michigan recruit, he calls for ‘blood on the field’ Cam Smith Yahoo Sports Blog

    "There are great college sports rivalries all over the country, but few can compare with the intensity of Michigan and Ohio State. The bordering Midwestern states harbor a legendary threshold of hate for one another, the likes of which can even make Red Sox and Yankees fans blush.

    Still, what happened to one Ohio native who dared cross state lines recently went beyond any sense of pride or rationality into a nearly scary situation … and may have given motivation to both teams come next November.

    As first reported by the Michigan football blog Tremendous and It's Always Sunny in Detroit, Michigan commitment Kyle Kalis received numerous threats from Ohio State fans after he committed to play for the Wolverines this fall. In fact, the threats were explicit and incredibly brazen, with more than one fan chiming in to say they hoped the offensive lineman tore his ACL. Of course, there's a reason why the hatred for Kalis was particularly fierce; he had previously committed to Ohio State before opening his future back up after the firing of Jim Tressel.

    While Kalis was surprisingly magnanimous in his handling of the threats -- the senior claims that he simply brushed them all off during the season -- he also patently refused to back away from controversy himself. The Lakewood (Ohio) St. Edward lineman said that the reaction by Ohio State fans would serve as inspiration for his future success at Michigan, and took a particularly aggressive tone when asked about the 2012 game between the Big Ten rivals, which will be played in Columbus.


    "There will be blood on the field and it won't be mine. … Quote it. Let them know."

    Gotta expect more outlandish news with all of the opportunities that people have now to express their feelings.
    I fully expect a great game this season since OSU picked up a new coach......If he stays healthy and calm.

    He's considered the standout of an outstanding recruiting class.
    Urban Meyer tried to sway him and he said, "It's all about Michigan"
    He looks like a tree trunk. A 5 star recruit..............

    What a sign of respect. I bet the real reason is that he doesn't want to scare the crap out of his players.

    I wonder if they print the name Michigan on the tickets that they try to sell...

    They fear the Block "M".............

    They didn't even list the logo like they did for other opponents.

    I agree. That's precisely why Michigan refuses to acknowledge Michigan State as a top rival. :granade(2):
