JT has had 13 different jobs in the last 25 years. He wasn't getting screwed by anyone. He's a perpetual job hopper mediocre college coach.

JT was probably the best defensive coordinator to stroll a Razorback sideline since the Holtz (Kiffin senior) era.  If it hadn't been for a mistake-happy Orlando Green (I think that was his name, #21 who was always beat by 10-yards), he would have probably helped Hooties hapless play-calling to a BCS-game in the 98 season. 

ECU fans think they should be more competitive than they actually are.  Their couple wins over a beginning-to-dwindle-downward Miami solidified and enhanced already unreal expectations.  JT is not a fans coach.  He is not a players coach. 

Compare DF's recruits with JTs schemes and always-improving fundamentals to what was on the field with the Reggie Herrings' and Willie T's defenses if you disagree.

Can't help but feel we're getting hosed here, somehow.  What happens when the SEC adds two more teams next year and Missouri then is placed into the West where it rightfully belongs?  We suddenly get paired up with Florida or Georgia every year?

With LSWho? droping Florida as its permanent eastern team, that is not too far fetched. I just feel that the corndogs and gamecocks are a bunch of putheys not wanting to play us at a certain time ir at all. Frick them both!

http://buttfrickandrogyny.com/ranking-the-2008-sec-recruiting-classes-four-years-later.php

I guess this means we can play football now.  Mod, feel free to move this to crapola.

Each year, a heavy emphasis is placed on recruiting rankings in college football. Rightfully so. Recruiting has evolved into a big business in its own right, and the money-making machine that major collegiate athletics has become is fed by talent. Without it, you're left out of the financial puzzle. Access to it provides you a chance to win, and to win big. Why else would a program like Texas A&M, that's gone 26-25 over the last four seasons, be invited to the SEC?

Easy answer: access to a fertile recruiting base and a strong desire for cash from monetizing the SEC brand in the state of Texas.

Despite the high priority placed on scouting and signing talent, college football recruiting and evaluation isn't infallible. Some high school stars bust, and some players who don't receive much attention at the prep level mature into the cornerstones of championship squads in college.

The phrase "tell me what they've done in four years" is thrown around by fans on National Signing Day. Typically, those are fans of schools who don't recruit that well, but there's some truth to the argument that it's not where a player starts, but where he finishes, that matters.

With that in mind we've taken a look at the SEC Classes of 2008. Where did they finish then on Signing Day, and where did they finish in 2011 on the scoreboard? Who busted and who racked up? Obviously, some players from this crop are still in school (redshirt seniors, players who received medical redshirts, etc.)

But for the most part, the hay is in the barn for this group.

So who won and how accurate were the recruiting rankings?

Let's find out.

After digesting all the pre-Spring info, I believe #Arkansas and #LSU will both be undefeated when the two 2 meet 4 the boot in Nov.

Other than the fact that attendance at Arkansas' spring game will be higher than attendance at ANY of stAte's home football games this year, they're really catching up in a hurry.

UNC takes one between the legs. Miami's punishment will be worse, I'm sure.

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=cr-robinson_north_carolina_sanctions_031212

North Carolina ruled ineligible for a bowl next season and must forfeit 15 scholarships

By Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports
1 hour, 45 minutes ago

The NCAA Committee on Infractions announced Monday the University of North Carolina failed to monitor its football program and will not be bowl eligible following the 2012 season. UNC also will have to forfeit 15 scholarships over the next three seasons.

Former assistant coach John Blake was also hit with a three-year “show cause” no-recruiting penalty as part of sanctions resulting from a 16-month NCAA investigation into the Tar Heels football program spanning 2010 and 2011. Blake’s censure means he will be banned from all recruiting activities in college football for three years unless a future employer argues successfully that he should be allowed to resume those duties. North Carolina also received three years probation, a $50,000 fine and must vacate all football victories from the 2008 and 2009 seasons. Multiple individuals also must be disassociated from the program for a varying period, including former tutor Jennifer Wiley and former Tar Heels wideout Hakeem Nicks.

Yahoo! Sports investigative stories in August and September 2010 revealed that Blake had business and financial ties to sports agency Pro Tect Management, as well as now-deceased agent Gary Wichard. Former star defensive tackle Marvin Austin was implicated in the September report as having received improper benefits from Wichard, and Blake was forced to resign by North Carolina in September, less than one month after the first Yahoo! Sports report was published.

North Carolina ultimately held 14 players out of competition in 2010 as part of the investigation, and seven of those players were suspended for the entire season. Head coach Butch Davis, who was not implicated in the NCAA investigation, was fired by the school prior to the 2011 season.

“This case should serve as a cautionary tale to all institutions to vigilantly monitor the activities of those student-athletes who possess the potential to be top professional prospects,” the Committee on Infractions stated in its report. “It should also serve to warn student-athletes that if they choose to accept benefits from agents or their associates, they risk losing their eligibility for collegiate competition.”

According to a statement from the NCAA, the Committee on Infractions determined:

• University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill is responsible for multiple violations, including academic fraud, impermissible agent benefits, ineligible participation and a failure to monitor its football program.

• Over the course of three seasons, six football student-athletes competed while ineligible as a result of these violations, and multiple student-athletes received impermissible benefits totaling more than $31,000.

• While employed by the university, a former assistant football coach [John Blake] was compensated by a sports agent [Gary Wichard] for the access he provided to student-athletes and failed to disclose the income to the university. The former assistant coach and a former tutor [Wiley] both committed unethical conduct and failed to cooperate with the investigation.

Former UNC wideout Hakeem Nicks is one of multiple individuals who must be disassociated from the program for a varying period.

The 15 scholarship losses over three seasons is a stiffer sanction than the nine scholarships docked from Ohio State in December, after the Buckeyes were embroiled in an extra-benefits scandal and concealment that ultimately cost coach Jim Tressel his job. Ohio State also received a bowl ban for one year (2012), as well as a five-year show cause penalty for Tressel.

The penalties are also more severe than those self-imposed by the Tar Heels in September, which included two years of probation, a reduction of three scholarships in each of the next three seasons, vacating all wins in 2008 and 2009, and a $50,000 fine. However, the school chose not to self-impose a bowl ban following the 2011 season, playing Missouri in the Independence Bowl and thus leaving any postseason sanctions to the NCAA. Rather than accept North Carolina’s penalties, the Committee on Infractions opted to increase them. But multiple sources told Yahoo! Sports the severity of the association’s response was mitigated by the school’s cooperation during the probe.
