your board doesn't allow recruiting threads? weird. what the heck do you talk about during the offseason lol

Yeah info you can easily find on twitter or our 24/7 site is locked up like CIA files on gsufans you cant even talk about recruiting in general lol...it is beyond silly.

On gsufans all recruiting threads are behind a pay wall on the site. Send E22 fifty dollars a year and you can get access all the inside information at Georgia Southern.

paid insider info is one thing. JCGSU indicated that you can't even create a thread to discuss recruiting? that is kind of a bummer...but it's a private website so he can do whatever he wants

I've run my board for 20 years having it both out in the open and behind a pay wall over the course of those 20 years. Twitter has changed the recruiting content, and IMO along with it the perception of what insider information even really is. To be truthful, while I get a lot of true insider information I probably post about 5% or less of it because when you really get trusted with it they generally don't want you sharing it, and I am NOT referring to coaches ... I'm talking about administration and executive level information. I also live 2 hours away from Statesboro, and while I have a pretty good level of being tapped in I don't pretend I know what every recruit had for breakfast or their favorite role model.

I'm also 50 years old. I don't spend much time tracking down what 17 and 18 year olds are doing. Didn't do it much at 30 when I started the site, and I had even better information. I might follow a few on Twitter but I don't interact beyond maybe a retweet or a 'like'.

It's not money that has driven the recruiting discussion behind the pay wall, it is primarily due to folks who can't follow simple instructions on following our minimal guidelines. The arguing and negative public discourse that transpired in our public recruiting forums over star ratings and recruit viability relative to our scheme, is what drove it out of the public realm. Now that it is behind our subscriber wall, it is significantly more tame and my moderator team is a happier bunch.

Yes for some reason folks that think recruit rankings and team rankings are crap and if the coach likes a kid then that is all they need cant seem to keep themselves from posting in threads about that subject they think is meaningless, including mods. I hate the endless flexbone threads so I stay out of them, dont know why grown adults could not do the same concerning recruiting threads Not a problem at all on here or other sites, being 114th in the country is bad and so was last year. Some just want to stick their fingers in their ears and cant stand calling a spade a spade on this subject. Nobody talked about individual players in the last thread or any thread other than they committed or signed yet it got moved, if we were 88th in the country like GaSt is I have a feeling some mods would let it ride. Said it since 2001, your board your call as usual, the end.

No. They wouldn't.

Because we have some really dumb fans who can't resist hating on everything, and that kind of negativity is not welcome when discussing recruits (not the only thing, but this is one of the most sensitive). Like it or not the things publicly said by our fanbase can be used against us. Other coaches do use our online presence against us.

It's hard to separate speaking in general with recruiting, especially when a thread is started to discuss a specific recruit.

The more that type of discourse is protected from public view, the better. The people who are capable of good conversation/debate on most topics are donators to the site anyway. The recruiting discussion has been much improved since being put back behind the paywall.

LOL the people that pay are the ones capable of good conversation. Or is it you can control the message better when things are not sunshine and rainbows which was the problem....with some mods. Calling a class in the 100's plus unacceptable is not being negative it is the truth. I agree talking about a specific recruit and or player for that matter is bad business but calling a spade a spade is not. I am pretty sure talking in general terms about recruiting on message board has about 1/1000000th the effect on recruiting than the current coach..or the previous years results. I think it is laughable at best some kid is not going to sign with a team because some random person posted something on a message board...Plenty of negativity bashing of Fritz in 2015 yet we signed the best class in Sun Belt and GS history for the 2016 class IIRC. Had a long convo with Eagle22 about it he actually made some rationale points on the decision even though I did not agree but understand none of which is what you and others are asserting why it happened BTW. I paid before back in the day...with twitter and the 24/7 site no reason to anymore really for recruiting info or conversation that is for sure.

I'm confused on how you found our Dev meeting minutes which held the secrets of our dastardly plan.

Lets get this back to recruiting and not the policies of another site

This is the 2nd thread you've derailed today.. let it be your last.

RE: 2018 Class FB Recruiting Thread
Any way you boys could like just use the PM feature or the GSU fans site for this conversation?

Break break

I'm really liking the type of players App has committed at the moment. You can see the player buy in based on the types of P5 offers a lot of them hold but remain committed to our program. We got poached a bit in October and November but that dust has settled rather nicely with signing day about to happen.

No notes needed, PM's from Eagle22 are more insightful. I mean the guy that runs the site is all I really care about and we discussed it at length.

So back on point we are track to finish 8th as of now. UL and USA trail but getting their coaches later than us probably hurt more. All three teams will likely lean on the traditional signing day way more than the early one. Who knows maybe a benefit to wait in the end.

I hate the endless flexbone threads so I stay out of them, dont know why grown adults could not do the same concerning recruiting threads Not a problem at all on here or other sites, being 114th in the country is bad and so was last year. Some just want to stick their fingers in their ears and cant stand calling a spade a spade on this subject. Nobody talked about individual players in the last thread or any thread other than they committed or signed yet it got moved, if we were 88th in the country like GaSt is I have a feeling some mods would let it ride. Said it since 2001, your board your call as usual, the end.

No. They wouldn't.

Because we have some really dumb fans who can't resist hating on everything, and that kind of negativity is not welcome when discussing recruits (not the only thing, but this is one of the most sensitive). Like it or not the things publicly said by our fanbase can be used against us. Other coaches do use our online presence against us.

It's hard to separate speaking in general with recruiting, especially when a thread is started to discuss a specific recruit.

The more that type of discourse is protected from public view, the better. The people who are capable of good conversation/debate on most topics are donators to the site anyway. The recruiting discussion has been much improved since being put back behind the paywall.

LOL the people that pay are the ones capable of good conversation. Or is it you can control the message better when things are not sunshine and rainbows which was the problem....with some mods. Calling a class in the 100's plus unacceptable is not being negative it is the truth. I agree talking about a specific recruit and or player for that matter is bad business but calling a spade a spade is not. I am pretty sure talking in general terms about recruiting on message board has about 1/1000000th the effect on recruiting than the current coach..or the previous years results. I think it is laughable at best some kid is not going to sign with a team because some random person posted something on a message board...Plenty of negativity bashing of Fritz in 2015 yet we signed the best class in Sun Belt and GS history for the 2016 class IIRC. Had a long convo with Eagle22 about it he actually made some rationale points on the decision even though I did not agree but understand none of which is what you and others are asserting why it happened BTW. I paid before back in the day...with twitter and the 24/7 site no reason to anymore really for recruiting info or conversation that is for sure.

I'm confused on how you found our Dev meeting minutes which held the secrets of our dastardly plan.

Lets get this back to recruiting and not the policies of another site

This is the 2nd thread you've derailed today.. let it be your last.

All three teams will likely lean on the traditional signing day way more than the early one. Who knows maybe a benefit to wait in the end.

That's a good point. Not only does the early signing period enable the G5's to lock up their recruits before the lower level P5's get desperate in January and start flipping them, it also forces those same P5's to sign their recruits early, leaving them less spots for their pre-February raiding.

Honestly who knows but GS, UL and USA will find out that is for sure with so few expected to sign tomorrow. Will likely honor those offers Tyson had out though. Bad optics if we did not.

There are at least two guys whose recruiting profiles will jump from 2-star to 3-star once their rival.com numbers are added. The current guys on our roster haven't been re-evaluated since the season ended and several of the folks who have committed don't have ratings. We will likely jump a few spots once recruiting is done and finish in the top 4 or 5. It's not as bad as it may seem, IMO.

True but that is the same for a lot of teams outside the top 50 or so. Only three rankings this year BTW as 24/7 bought Scout. Maybe the evaluators will focus on all the kids that signed and get their profiles up to date? Just another question that will be answered soon.

We'll announce like 20 guys tomorrow. How many actually sign is another matter entirely. We've got a list of blue shirts and transfers that count toward this class as well.

Blue shirts is a new one on me...nice loophole Grey-shirt with benefits?.... Transfers count against the recruiting class and not just the 85?

Every person you sign counts against a recruiting class.

Blue Shirts are players who sign and enroll in August. They are eligible to play the day they enroll, but they count for the 25 in the next recruiting class instead of the previous class.

Transfers can either count forward to the next 25 or count back to the previous 25 depending on when they enroll. I'm not sure of the exact rules. I just know that we have two FBS Transfers who count towards this class already on campus, and 7 or 8 blue shirts who are already playing that count this class.

We will sign 15+ tomorrow. Currently moved up to #1 in the SunBelt. What is CSE doing that CTM apparently couldn't? Huge difference.
