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 pussy. Nothing more, nothing less.

. Messican might be a good choice...
Or maybe someone could build a Chinese buffet up there!
Is it illegal to eat sushi off Nekkid girls?
Nekkid girls and raw fish. overpowering!
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.
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.
Not sure I agree or disagree with the tactic but I do know, from having heard the interviews with recruits, that steak is the meal that most of them are served at the Catfish Hole.
Alabama has 12 of the ESPNu top 150 commited. The rest of the West has 9. I started a thread about recruiting after the Alabama game and was lambasted. I stand by what I wrote. Bobby Petrino is a GREAT coach but I've yet to see him assemble a staff that looks to be great recruiters. I understand that he doesn't like recruiting, but he needs to hire someone that does. Yeah, we have been in the mix for all this elite talent but our staff really struggles at closing. We will whiff on DGB, Santos, Peters, Diamond, Goodman, and Gardner. There is no way to positively spin that. I agree 100%I hope I am wrong.
are they wrong alot? much more so than they are right.
What else matters that recrootniks ignore1. work ethic - do they work hard? will they work hard in college or flame out because they are no longer the most athletically gifted person on the field?2. has the kid peaked? has he already fully physically matured? does he have the potential to grow more, pack on muscle, etc.? if the motherfricker looks 30, he's already as good as he's ever gonna be, which is probably equivalent to a serviceable backup or mediocre starter.3. are they mentally mature and not go ape aMm the minute they move outta momma's house? numerous top ranked recruits that never make the team due to grades or get kicked off before they ever significantly contribute due to arrests/character issues.4. are they intelligent enough to grasp the complex schemes/plays/assignments of college football? (does not apply to hooten dale recroots or positions like dt)
does having highly ranked classes regularly translate to being an elite program? no. notre dame, texas, florida, florida state, miami, and auburn can all attest to this the last couple of years...and next year for that matter.
Not true. Recruting rankings are significantly correlated to end of season rankings and wins. Here's an abstract of just one paper: http://jse.sagepub.com/content/4/3/240.shortI admit that some of these variables explain the interim between recruiting ranking and how things go for the program in the long run, but how can you hold ANY of this against recruiting services? How could Petrino evaluate this stuff either? For that matter, how could the PLAYER HIMSELF know any of this stuff??The abstract linked above denies the spirit of what you're saying about highly ranked classes and elite programs (Starkville, common sense does, too). But two other things:(1) look at Utah State, Marshall, FIU, or name your aMm school. They recruit like ass and they finish like ass in the standings. You can pick all the outliers you want (there will be some overachievers and underachievers), but the general trend remains the same.(2) Even if your point were worth anything, all it shows is that you can recruit like a badass and not make it. That doesn't address whether you can recruit like ass and make it. The schools I mentioned haven't. The question is whether we can.We do have, I think, a top 5 coach. And that does give us some hope for thinking we could be one of the those overachievers. But believing that does NOT mean recruiting rankings are 'worthless'. There wouldn't be any reason to talk about Petrino's ability to coach up players UNLESS YOU ALREADY THOUGHT THERE WAS SOME SUBSTANCE TO THE RECRUITING EVALUATIONS (that, to make this as plain as possible, they're probably right we got less talent, but it doesn't matter because we actually have a coach).
You would think if BMFP stays here long enough the blue chip recruits and or their coaches\parents would notice the trend of how much we win despite great recruiting rankings and how much NFL talent we have despite high recruiting rankings and pick us over one of those underachievers mentioned above. Every year I follow recruiting hoping to see that happen. But it hasn't yet.
aMm like that doesn't happen overnight. We haven't been relevant since the 80's so it will take BMFP + Winning to get those good recruits. You can't tell me that Alabama or Oklahoma is a nicer place for a young man to live than Fayetteville. It will take more than 2 years of winning which is basically where we are.
there is a lot to recruiting a player that recrootniks don't look at or evaluate that BMFP does. that's all it boils down to.
But considering what we know now, that DGB is playing for personal glory and not for championships, do you still want him playing for the Hogs?
considering what we know about Michael Dyer now would you still want to see him playing for the Razorbacks?
there is a lot to recruiting a player that recrootniks don't look at or evaluate that BMFP does. that's all it boils down to. every recruiting class needs to be coached up. if not then Florida State, Notre Dame, Clemson, Auburn, and Texas A&M would have finished in the top 5 each of the last 5 or 6 years. maybe their coaching staffs are so fucking stupid they cause more harm than if the recruits coached themselves, who knows. take a look at your average nfl roster, stocked full of kids from no-name colleges. it aint because they turned down big-time programs. its because big-time programs did not properly evaluate the recruits. Starkville, willie roaf was just elected to the pro football hall of fame. he played hs ball in arkansas and his biggest scholly offer was to UCA.about 20% of the can't miss 5-star prospects never even get drafted, that's a pretty big fucking margin of error for "experts" that spend 40 hrs per week 50 weeks a year evaluating high school talent.you want to win recruiting national championships of the world, go be a clemson or florida state fan and get the fuck out. there is more to winning than recruiting, and apparently BMFP and his staff kick the aMm out of every other coaching staff in the country when it comes to everything else. no other staff consistently gains 30 spots in the re-rankings 4 years later. John L Smith and BMFP recruited more players drafted into the NFL at Louisville than Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, etc. did during the same 4 year span and Louisville's highest recruiting ranking while they were there was about 29th. keep on being a dumbfuck, paying out your $9.95 a month to read a bunch of bullshit articles on rivals or whatever you hang your hat on, and believe whatever it is you believe.
Yes. Absolutely. 100%. OBVIOUSLY.I didn't want him then. DGB's recruitment had basically nothing in common with Dyer's, other than not picking us, though.
