The appropriate thing for an SEC team to do now is to let Toby Bailey's son to walk-on at DB.

I KID, I KID

and start.

Demetrius Wilson. I'm going to keep repeating this.

Also: lose the catfish hole. Find something else.


This.
I can't imagine just how gay tulsahog and his ilk at the catfish hole seem to high school boys.
Get rid of that aMm.


Yeah, let's get rid of the one thing EVERY recruit mentions as the favorite part of his visit.

I'm not even sure some of these schools are good at recruiting.  Kids that go out of state I think tend to focus more on what the perception of the program is.  We tend to look at our program through homer glasses, so of course some of us don't understand why an out of state kid doesn't pick us.  2 seasons of double digit wins has turned some 4-5 star heads to glance our way, but I think it's going to take at least 2 more continued seasons of ending with double digit wins for us to reap the recruiting 4-5 star rewards that we are feeling we should land.

Prior to our last 2 seasons, what does anyone think the national perception of our program was?  I think that's what Petrino has been fighting against when it comes to  recruiting.  He's slowly but surely changing minds, and thank goodness he knows how to evaluate and coach kids up while those minds are changing.

Agree. We're getting there.

I get both sides.  Are the kids just loving the Catfish Hole or is that where they feel the most love?  Is it the catfish itself, the crowd, or what?  Is the catfish and atmosphere so good that it can not be enhanced?  Plus, we hear about it from all the recruiting guys because that's what the dumb bastards always ask about.  What are the kids going to say? "It was a bit creepy, all these old white people screaming about us black kids they know nothing about. One of them ate my leftovers so I guess I will have to get use to that if I decide to come here."  I don't honestly know, never been one of the old white people there.

Any idea when the Catfish Holes traditon started? I don't have much of an opinion on it, just curious how long that's been the place that the staff has been taking recruits to on visits.

There are some that say it, but I can assure you that not all are saying it. We can do better. Furthermore, other schools are using it against us. They are playing the backwoods racist card on us.

Take them to Does. Powerhouse. Somewhere. Hire some waitresses that know what they are, uh, doing.

After experiencing the dinner for recruits at the Catfish Hole last Friday night, the 4-Star defensive lineman prospect from Louisiana, Mickey Johnson said,  "The Catfish Hole is the greatest thing ever invented."

14 recruits, and their family members, along with new Hog, Qunita Funderburk and his family attended the dinner.

The room used for recruits was full, and the room where fans and regular customers was full as well.  Great food, and great atmosphere!

Pat, Janie, and their crew do a great job!

Hey, it helped us land Mickey Johnson last year! Yeah, maybe it's time for a change.

Sounds to me like our recruits need to get out of the fricking house more.

Everyone always seems so amazed that these kids aren't instantly sold on Fayetteville and the NWA area in general.  I'm not sure if you guys are paying attention, but the only people that really seem that impressed with the area in my experience are white people.  What would seem to be an amazing experience to some is probably alienating to some of our recruits.  I like the place personally, but I'm not an 18-year-old black kid.

THe catfish hole is fricking lame. THese kids are being asked by our "recruiting gurus" what they thought of the catfish hole and the recruits are telling them it was great and the hushpuppies are tits and then committing to fricking somebody else. I promise you if these kids got real with you they would tell you it's lame.

???

Who else did we miss on signing day onward other than DGB, and Diamond? 

So you're saying Coach Petrino didn't want any of these guys? 

Have you watched their videos?  Have you read their measurables?

Eric Hawkins is the fastest 100 meter runner we have ever signed for football that I am aware of (he's faster than Batman, Ronnie Wingo, and he's faster than Wallace Spearmon was in high school).  As a junior in high school Eric ran a 10.32 100 meters.  He will be one Starkville of an athlete for us.

Nate Holmes is 6' 1" 180lb athlete (running back) that runs a 4.4 40.

Etc, etc...

We lost out on a commited courtney gardner to OU.i believe he will be a stud. Watch his tape.

I think michael grant ran a faster 100 time maybe?

I don't know if it was us losing out on him as much as it was that stupid SEC transfer rule.

Turd had it right.  Gardner wasnt going to get in due to sec transfer rules.  Same problem mike pennell had. 

Michael Grant wasnt faster in track in high school.  He was 1/10 of a second slower in the hundred, and Eric hasnt even started his senior season yet.  Nate Holmes is about the same speed as Michael Grant was in high school.

We can feed them steak and lobster, but we choose catfish and hush puppies.  I don't know the answer, but this just doesn't sound right.

I wondered about this in a thread on the Recruiting board, but it was dismissed.  I wouldn't try to get my kids to eat bottom feeding fish.  Petrino should do an opinion polls on the Catfish Hole with his players.

someone needs to really help these kids.  choosing who will teach you about football, develop you as a player, prepare you for the nfl, keep you out of trouble, and make you grow up as a man for the next 3 or 4 years based on what you eat, where you eat, how many signs you see with your picture or name on them, hearing the fans chant your name, etc. is fricking stupid.  the parents ought to be educating their kids about this stuff ahead of time so the kid can make the best informed decision on the right criteria and not on how good the food at the local restaurant is.

might as well pick out their first car purchase based solely on where the cup holders are and how many of them there.  they'd all end up driving dodge caravans.  but no, when it comes to important decisions like their ride, they'll choose wisely.

It ain't just the food that should be reassessed, but venue.  It has to unnerving coming into a packed restaurant of red faced, bug-eyed hog callers that watch your every move as if you're a fish bowl.  Take them to best steakhouse and don't announce it.

You really think most 18 year old kids make wise choices on cars if it was up to them?  They probably SHOULD be choosing a dodge caravan, but will end up with a  hooptie with 5k rims.

They choose universities like they choose cars, based on bling and puthy.  Nothing more, nothing less.
