No they don't but Texas is taking Santos, OU is taking Gardner and Bama is taking Altee Tenpenny. Who did we get that was offered by those schools?
You'd fit in well with the Rivals crowd. Never seen a group of weeping gashes like they have over there. We had our best season in over 30 years and have improved each year since Petrino arrived, yet half that board seems ready to turn on him because his recruiting isn't living up to their own expectations.
OU is not "taking" Gardner...in fact, I will be surprised if you see him in college.
Fine, go ahead and panic. Bobby Petrino sucks at recruiting and Arkansas will never compete with him at the helm. We're doomed.
That's what I don't get. Why? I am not trying to be "that guy". I am just suggesting that as awesome as BMFP is, he might could do well to get some recruiters on this staff. We obviously want DGB, Neal, Diamond, Peters, Orijke, Santos, and Garnder. Starkville, we even get them to campus. We had an incredible recruiting extravaganza lat week filled with pep rallies, 19,050 fans at BWA and TulsaPerv stalking recruits at The Catfish Hole and nary a one commitment has come from it. Surely I am not the only one who sees this.
Santos is from Texas. Gardner can't get into the SEC. And Donovan Roberts was offered by Oklahoma, no matter how much they want to deny it.
Sorry, but you're already "that guy" who freaks out over what a few 17 year olds decide to do for the next 3-4 years. I seem to remember that this staff has done a pretty decent job of developing the players they DO get. Whether or not we get DGB and/or some of the others on the list wiil NOT make this class a complete bust, but there will be quite a gew such as yourself who will be screaming that from the mountaintops if that happens.Seems to me that the recruiting class from 4 years ago was rated pretty low and yet we got a couple of 10 win seasons out of that group at a time when LSU and Alabama are PEAKING. I tend to think that maybe our coaching staff might know just a little bit more about how to recruit and develop players than I, you, or the doofs at Rivals or ESPN do. That's just me, though. Freak away if you must.
Brey Cook, Quinta Funderburke, Mitch Smothers, Lonnie Gosha all got offers from Alabama. Tevin Mitchell and Austin Flynn got offers from OU.
There's still 2 days until NSD. Everyone needs to chill and look at some tig ole bitties in the meantime.

Many of the key contributors to the Razorbacks' 11-win season this fall came from this class, highlighted by quarterback Tyler Wilson, who threw for over 3,500 yards, the versatile Joe Adams, who returned four punts for TDs, and Jarius Wright, who led the team in receiving with 66 grabs and 12 touchdowns. It wasn't all offense in this class, however, as the Razorbacks also signed safety Tramain Thomas, who led the team in interceptions in 2011, and talented linebacker Jerico Nelson.
Personally, I'm not sure I give a shit what the recruiting services 'rank' our recruiting class or anyone else's, but for anyone who does care, ESPN thinks pretty highly of that 2008 class now. After they've actually played football in college.http://insider.espn.go.com/college-sports/recruiting/football/story/_/id/7473214/alabama-crimson-tide-prove-had-nation-top-class-2008Here's the text from #6 on their list:I'm not sure where we were at the time on the list, but tOSU was #6 originally, and we were outside the top 10. Likely outside the top 20 or 25. These rankings really don't mean shit, and neither does Grit's opinion on Rivals.
pretty sure I saw where we were #36 that year.
Motherfuck. Nobody is ready to turn on Petrino. I also don't think questioning his recruiting is beyond reproach.
