Not to brag, our mean average recruit, is better than UConn's and Tulsa's best recruit. If we sign Taylor and Thomas, it may also include Memphis, Navy and Temple.

I wouldn't do anything that approaches bragging until our record is better than the teams you've listed.

In short, I feel our weekly whippings will continue.

Well, maybe if Rico Quinton doesn't work out as a basketball player...

Agree, I forgot how douchiastic some other teams posters sounded by winning the recruiting war.

Its tougher to recruit when you bring in a new coaching staff 3 weeks from the new early signing day. A lot of players were already signed before we even finalized our staff. Given the circumstances Heupel did alright.

Yep...we had the same thing happen in the BK year. New staff was kind of scrambling and didn't land many bigger names but the class ended up doing alright on the field.

Yea I think leading up to today was fine but today has been bad. Wildgoose and Baldonado both seemed to be 50/50 heading in and lost them both. Not sure how a florida kid picks Pitt over UCF but who am i to judge, hopefully we smoke them this year. Also lost purdy a couple days ago, leaving us with 2 scholarship qb's.

He's a 3 star, was a nice pickup though looks like he could play early for us.

We are just too familiar with karma to do such, though many of our fans still fail to heed it.

Dorian Hardy. Not bragging, thankful. He was committed to PSU until getting involved in a controversial fight. A position we sorely need to fill. Hope the young man brings it to the field.

RE: Football Signing Day Part Deux
The winter storm that hit the midwest is likely to delay any potential Cincinnati targets from signing, as signing ceremonies in the area are being postponed due to road conditions/school closures. Hopefully we snag a couple of big ones tomorrow. One of our targets is off the board to UK this morning, but there are at least 3 other highly-rated guys that were more likely to sign anyway.

he's not a florida kid. he's not that different from the IMG kids. he moved to florida from italy last year and played football for the first time and took to it. i honestly don't think football really factored in his decision making.

he reminded me of greg romeus and funny enough UCF lost out to pitt as well.

If Brents does not sign with Louisville or WVU, than I believe he is in the fold.
