This is probably the 1st time Rivals has said something nice about our program in about a decade.
No mention of the two 4-5 star transfers. Has anyone heard if they can play this year?
So we're the smartest retard? The tallest midget? Just kidding.... I think the class was solid. 12 4-stars is legit.
What's the over/under on the number of 4 & 5 stars in the next class? I'd say 14.5? (I'd take the over and guess we get 15 along w/ 8-10 3-stars).
I’ll go with 19.
I think the days of 3*s are over. We’ll probably see 3-5 2/3*s combined.
From a talent perspective of guys who could be integral to performing immediately, yeah, it's one of the best. it would have been top 7-8 if we could have gotten to 25. Really excited to see what we can do with a full year.
Is it okay for me to call you a sunshine pumper?
Don't think you'll ever see us take a 2 star ever. Unless its walk on or kicker.
Improve offensively and show these kids we are a few players away from being elite, and they'll start coming back. These kids were 10 the last time we fielded a relevant offense. Think about that
All kidding aside...
19 is feasible. The top 73 players in the state were 4 or 5 stars. Say we get 70% of our players from Florida. and we sign 25. That’s 18 players from Florida.
Let’s say we get at least three 4 star players from other states. That’s only 14 players. We can’t convince 14 of the top 73 players to come to the flagship university? That’s only a 19% close rate.
Or if it’s a package deal.
Yes, that's feasible for sure. But we haven't done well in Florida the last several years. Gouraige was our highest ranked Florida kid, ranked 19th. If the product on the field is good this year, I think we get closer to 19 - as you suggest. If we struggle, I think it's closer to the 15 I suggested....or we could get 17 and meet in the middle!
It was an excellent transition class, and I'm still puzzled at those who are disappointed by it. The numbers weren't high, but the quality sure was.
There's no doubt to me that this will be the worst ranked class of the Dan Mullen era. We won't be finishing outside the top 10 again while he's here. Great shot at Top 5 next season, especially if we finally show a pulse on offense.
So you're saying no more trasks then, huh?
More importantly, no more embarrassing NSD hat ceremonies where we're edging out Temple, VT, and FAU.
Or even worse, NOT edging those teams out.
I'm pretty sure we were undefeated in the head-to-heads. VT was unable to lure Wells away from the clutches of McElwain, Desir-Jones shocked the south Florida press when he flipped, and Temple gave it their best shot but just entered the sweepstakes too late to secure McWilliams' signature.
Top tier talent may have been flocking elsewhere, but if you were an Owl, Hokie, Bearcat or Baptist in the greater Houston area, Jim was gonna nab your best prospects, and there was really nothing you could do about it.
Yeah pretty sure we lost a recruiting battle to syracuse under mac
Doesn't rivals undermine their own ranking system with this story? If your system works the way it should, then the best class outside of the top 10 should be ranked 11, right?
Not at all. Haven't you heard? Were waiting til next year to get all the good guys....
Were at a point where we are getting participation trophies.....
I trust that Mullen gets better in the second year though. If his brand gets us 9 or 10 wins I believe it will but that's gonna be a tall order next year.
