Alright College Football Fans... Signing Day is upon us

LSU and Alabama have the two highest recruiting classes so far. Both are in the top 5 nationally. There are still a lot of high profile players that haven't decided and could go to either LSU, Alabama or Florida.

Blah, blah, blah. Top 5 recruiting class. That's a bunch of bull****. Nobody knows how those players are going to perform at the next level. Recruiting class rankings are such bull****.

It gives you a decent idea of where your program is heading though.

No it doesn't. It just gives sportscasters and writers something else to talk about.

It does give you a good idea. You can tell a lot by coaches and how hard they go after players. There is a reason teams like Florida Atlantic don't ever do anything. It's because they can't get the good recruits. OBVIOUSLY these big schools going after these players know what they are doing.

Obviously 5 star Julio Jones performed terribly last year. Rivals didn't know anything when they ranked him the number 1 wide receiver in the nation.

Re: Alright College Football Fans... Signing Day is upon us

Only because you are an Auburn fan and half your recruits left after Tubby 'resigned'.

If you were to argue that the top 10 didn't really matter because they are all pretty close in talent, then i could see that.

But to say that it doesn't matter that Alabama, LSU and Florida are grabbing the hottest talent from the Southeast is baffling.

It'd be another thing if either of you guys actually paid attention to recruiting. Rivals has a pretty solid track record for ranking players.

I'm not saying it because I am an Auburn fan, I'm saying it because I don't care about recruiting and top players ect.

Re: Alright College Football Fans... Signing Day is upon us

it helps to establish the potential, not the actual. Some are right/some are wrong. You just have a better chance if they performed better before college~ not sure how you can see that any other way. There are always people that dont really get recognized that do great~ just a flaw in the system.

Re: Alright College Football Fans... Signing Day is upon us

The Associated Press reviewed the top 50 recruits as named by Scout.com and Rivals.com from 2002-04, two services that essentially began as start ups but sold in recent years for tens of millions of dollars.

The AP found that when picking the 10 players with the brightest football futures, the services were right a little more than half the time, based on whether a player started 20 games or more in college, his recognition for awards or whether he made it to the NFL.

When it got to picks 11-50, the services were even more hit and miss.

Scouting services often miss best football recruits - College football- nbcsports.msnbc.com

We picked up the number one Defensive Back in the nation Trent Richardson is announcing on ESPN at 4PM where he is going. He is the last 5 star that hasn't decided between Alabama, LSU and Florida.

I hear ya.

I know that you can't expect Rivals to get it right 100% of the time. But out of the thousands of high school players in this nation that get recruited heavily by the top schools they do a pretty damn good job of estimating talent and potential.

He is a running back. The Defensive Back we picked up is Dre Kirkpatrick - Football Recruiting

Dre and Trent are good friends and it is expected that Trent will follow Dre where he goes.

Good thing this wasn't the tech section or I would have had to issue you an infraction for improper punctuation using internet lingo instead of the proper character.

Re: Alright College Football Fans... Signing Day is upon us

I suppose there is always going to be some superstar no one saw coming, and some 5 star media whore that plays worse than n8r's fantasy team. Everyone has different ratios in which they will say "they get it right most of the time" or "they are so inaccurate it's useless" so I won't start a big argument in this thread too.




this post was mostly just for the n8r joke
