cogent, yet understated.
But he lives in Mississippi?
After the last two seasons, are you really surprised? I, for one, am pretty impressed that we were able to end up with a top 5 class. It probably helped that they had the ability to use the 'you can play right away' line without suppressing a laugh for a change. If we can put together a couple of good seasons, we'll get better in the recruiting game again. As for the 4* vs 5* argument, I tend to think statistically the numbers matter across the entire class, but individuals and the situation they're put into can affect their performance dramatically (John Brantley comes to mind). Great player, wrong system...
I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that Navy's coach wants to drop Air Force from its schedule.
It'll all become clear in the second week of the season, Florida at Texas A&M. It ought to be a good game, and a telling one at that. Damn, I miss college football!
stay classy, Miles...
Don't rag on a recruit YOU failed to land. Makes you look like a douche.
I've never been much of a Miles fan. Now I'm in the anti-Miles camp. What a douche. Sure contrasts with Gundy's "I'm a Man rant."
No national champions in this list but some pretty solid programs.
SUCCESS OUTSIDE THE TOP 25
Here's a look at the 10 best teams in terms of winning percentage from 2002-10 who are*not in the top 25 recruiting rankings:
Team Winning pct. (rank) Avg. recruiting rank
Boise State 89.8 (1st) 76th
TCU 81.4 (5th) 61st
Utah 75.0 (9th) 59th
West Virginia 73.9 (13th) 33rdY
Wisconsin 70.9 (14th) 36th
Iowa 68.42 (T-15th) 40th
Boston College 68.37 (17th) 41st
Texas Tech 68.1 (18th) 38th
Penn State 65.5 (20th) 30th
Hawaii 64.5 (21st the top
What teams have been the worst performers with top talent? (Lot's of 4's & 5's) I think that would be a very interesting statistic.
Maybe sour grapes? Maybe not.... We all know Bielema wouldn't do anything so crass....like go for two up by 30 in the 4th quarter or run up 80 some points on Indiana....
At any rate this matchup gets real interesting before ever playing a game.
I mean really, if someone had a chance to get out of Louisiana, and took it, who could really get upset about it?
First team that comes to mind for me is UGA. Richt has managed to do less with more for about a decade. No offense meant to UGA fans, but I live here in Athens, and even the local radio guys say the same. They only managed four or five of the top 25 recruits from the state of Georgia this year which is surprising considering the season they put together last year.
How about Penn State and Notre Dame over the last decade?
If that was a recruit's biggest concern, FSU wouldn't have signed such a highly ranked class.
I think Muschamp must work on is winning the instate recruiting battles.
I think you'd have to give that particular award to the one and only University of Miami.
"Updated: WVU may get sued by FSU for dropping game, too"
Evidently WVU is anticipating in the Big 12 and has to make room in the schedule by dropping FSU. Of course, their being sued by the Big East for pulling out. Sounds like a big mess for college football and evidently no one can step up and sort it out short of going to court. :huh
Call FAU. I'm sure we're not busy that weekend.
So, USC is projected to be the preseason #1. Hard to believe anybody wouldn't put Saban #1 at this point, but there you have it.
It keeps them from having to re-do the poll after Bama plays Michigan.
