UCONN Football Recruiting
Serious question for rational posters, what's up with UCONN's football recruiting ranked at 120 and falling? I know the early signing period is not until Dec. 20, but dang. Is there some part of the big picture I'm not seeing? It seems like with their massive budget they would have some advantages. This is not a troll question.

RE: UCONN Football Recruiting
Apparently HuskyU doesn't think this is a serious question. Football drives the bus for P5s, and it would be awful to see UConn left behind in another round of realignment for not taking a serious approach. I'm rooting hard for UConn.

Maybe someone with actual knowledge of UConn recruiting could comment.

RE: UCONN Football Recruiting
No...It's just an obvious troll thread. You respond to my post in the other thread about ECU's piss poor efforts in the conference (http://csnbbs.com/thread-821279-page-5.html) then start this thread literally 8 minutes later.

I'm sure you are really concerned about UCONN being left out in the next round of realignment. Perhaps we never get the golden ticket, but at least UCONN will ALWAYS be ahead of ECU when it comes to a P5 invite.

Even if that is true, no school will ever get a P5 invite without dedication to football. HuskyU's vitriolic comments aside, what really is going on? I would like to see UConn be successful in spite of his rants. How much nicer could I possibly be?

RE: UCONN Football Recruiting
In fairness to UConn, they have never had a high recruiting ranking in football-- even in the Big East when they could see being in an AQ Conference. OTOH, they have placed a lot of guys into the NFL.

A big issue is simply location. They are not in a recruiting hotbed, and they have to compete with Penn State, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Syracuse, Maryland and BC for the few highly ranked guys in their footprint.

The true measure of "what's going on with UConn" won't be known for a couple of years. Edsall is going to have to recruit the right kind of guys to fit his system. He was able to do this during his first run in Storrs, we are just going to have to see it play out to see if history repeats itself.

I have it on good authority that our basketball team consists mostly of old cardboard display cutouts of Dennis Rodman from the mid-90's, and we beat your team last year.

Our football team went 3-9 on the season, and we still embarrassed you. Put together a winning season in this decade and then unload some poo if you're still an FBS program.
