Did Oklahoma State Steal Michigan’s Recruiting Pitch?

first_imgOklahoma State busted out some pretty nice recruiting graphics this week, which several OSU commits — Shamond Greenwood and Tylan Wallace — posted on their twitter timelines as shown below.https://twitter.com/Lc_Greenwood/status/773277042057949185#GoPokes ??? pic.twitter.com/vvyXikdiTG— SUPERMAN (@OfficialTylan2) September 6, 2016I raved about the detail in the designs all the way down to personalized nameplates on the desk with the “CEO” title, which is a unique touch. But the overall graphic appears to be some version of what Michigan used in previous recruiting graphics, and several people on twitter were quick to point it out. Among those to chime in was Michigan’s Director of Football Creative Aaron Bills who posted the original edit of Eddie McBroom, who signed with the Wolverines as part of the 2016 recruiting class (obviously suggesting that it was used sometime before national signing day earlier in February): pic.twitter.com/Ahcn56UOio— Aaron Bills (@AaronBDesigns) September 7, 2016Here’s the side-by-side comparison of the eerily similar graphics:screen-shot-2016-09-07-at-7-28-02-pmThere are unique touches to both graphics, obviously, but it is pretty similar to what Michigan used in a previous graphic without dispute. And Michigan fans were all up in Wallace’s mentions about it, too:lol chill chill they send them too me I post them ???? not that serious— SUPERMAN (@OfficialTylan2) September 7, 2016My only thought is that Harbaugh basically tried to take full credit for the creation and idea of satellite camp, of which Mike Gundy pioneered before it became the hip thing to do. So maybe this is Gundy’s way of stealing back some of that thunder.¯\_(ツ)_/¯If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
