In your mind, are you ranking them based on how good they are going to be or how they are going to finish?
what the crap is this heck i don't even grey pants no hog to be seen rage/taken from the fall, 2012 nike team catalogue
I guess gray is the new black at Nike.
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
This is green.
Every time LaTech loses a game next year the announcers will talk non-stop about this being a reason why.
Tyrone Duplessis, a RB from LA Tech, died yesterday of what looks to be a heart attack. I feel horrible for his family and for the team. http://college-football.si.com/2012/02/02/louisiana-tech-rb-tyrone-duplessis-dead-at-21/?sct=cf_t2_a11
Both. Oregon will lose two maybe three games and be out of the top five easily. Isnt that what you suppose to do. Rank them base on how good you'll think they will be and finish the season.
I doubt this would happen at a BCS school with the hard scholarship cap and the cut-throat nature of recruiting, but this is a pretty cool gesture by Rice's coach to honor the schollie for this guy:http://bruce-feldman.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/31626208/34691209Like thousands of other gifted high school football recruits, David Wilganowski and his family probably took a big sigh of relief and celebrated that the madness that has become National Signing Day was finally behind them. It's around this time--just a few days after colleges announce who they've landed--that we tend to start learning about those other kids, who may have bought into hollow promises only to realize that they've been left out in the margins, squeezed by the world of big-time college sports. It happens so much now that we shrug our shoulders at coaches making cutthroat "business" decisions or when both players and coaches mangle the definition of the word "commitment" that the details behind the 6-4, 230-pound defensive end's signing with the Rice Owls Wednesday should make you smile. Oh, Wilganowski, like the rest of the recruits who faxed in their letters a few days ago, was a big deal in his hometown. He'd committed to play D1 football on a full scholarship (to Rice) in June. He was a team captain and Homecoming King as a senior and starred in other sports (track and power lifting). The kid from Rudder High School in Bryan, Texas was also Academic All-State and picked the Owls over offers from among others, Army, Navy and Air Force. Then, Wilganowski's life took a dramatic turn. At the start of Wilganowski's senior season, he collapsed during a game. His heart had given out. Paramedics had to revive him. Wilganowski was diagnosed with something called Long Q-T Syndrome. He had a heart defibrillator implanted into his chest. Doctors informed him his football career was over. His mom, Susan told Fox Sports Houston she thought there was "no chance" her son would be on an athletic scholarship this fall. However, Rice head coach David Bailiff remained committed to the kid and to his promise to welcome him as part of the Owls football program. On Wednesday, the coach was proud to announce that Wilganowski was getting that full scholarship. "We ask those young men to commit to us, and we tell them we're gonna be there through thick and thin," Bailiff said. "That's how that works. Your word has to be good." Sadly, that's something that seems like it's becoming pretty rare these days.

That's the one thing I preach to my kids - keep your word. No matter how much you may regret it or how bad it hurts, you keep your word.There's hope for the human race yet.
I live near Branson, so I gave up bitching about traffic a long time ago. I'm not going to post pictures of my wife's tits and/or ass. And I've had about all the recruiting rumor I can digest. So that leaves the 2012 Arkansas Razorbacks Football team.This past season we had two (maybe three) glaring weakness: (1) Our O-line resembled, most of the time, a wounded beer can. (2) Cornerbacks struggled in man-to-man coverage, or most any coverage for that matter. (3) We struggled mightily to stop a zone-read running attack.Next season, emerging weaknesses could be (4) the wide receiving corps, and (5) our pass rush.My thoughts:(1) I think we're solid on the inside with Swanson, B. Cook, and Bailey. Can the T's rise to the occasion and hold off Bama & LSU's pass rush?(2) I'm encouraged by the play of Tevin Mitchell, he proved last season, to me, that he's not going to shy away from 'the moment'. I'm hopeful that D. Winston will at last show a little pride and step up and be a leader'.(3) I don't know what to do about this except hope that new defensive coordinator Paul Haynes can coach 'em up better than Ol' Willy.(4) I'm not banking on the fact that 'football jesus' is going to sign that dotted line come Wednesday. I have some serious concerns about the WR corps. Cobi Hamilton, apart from two big plays against LSU, has never shown that he can be the #1 guy. Wade, Horton, Herndon and Funderburke all are unproven--to put it mildly.(5) I keep hearing Trey Flowers, Trey Flowers, Chris Smith, Trey Flowers...get the frick outta here. I believe we have the physical talent to get the job done, but this unit is really going to have to step their game up. I'm not a doomsayer. In my mind, these are some legitimate concerns moving forward. I hope the 'elite talent' we're supposed to have redshirting can step in and make a difference.
Just ask Arkansas and South Carolina. They were part of the SEC's last expansion 20 years ago when the league went to 12 teams and split into two divisions in 1992.Both teams are still looking for their first SEC championship, and between them, they've been to only three SEC championship games. South Carolina didn't make its first trip to Atlanta until the 2010 season.

I am a sucker for all those goofy traditions that every school has. I get caught up in the moment of watching the band form the A, playing the 1812 Overture, and watching the student section do that same silly dance. And then I scream my fool-head off when the Hogs come charging through that A.
Tyler Wilson is Chris Low's #17 player in the SEC. Rated a little low in my book. He was the best QB in the SEC afterall. http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/39081/the-secs-top-25-players-no-17
