Random pre-signing day recruiting question

Why is it that so many of the same people who bray throughout the year that they’d rather have the three-star kid who’s dedicated to being at the school freak out when the five-star kids look elsewhere at the last minute?

    Because it’s our 5 star kid that’s looking around?

  2. Tronan

    Because the object of their creepy affection might leave them with no-one but Miss Congeniality to wipe away their Saban-inflicted tears?

  3. Gravidy

    Because those people are not acquainted with the concept of intellectual honesty?

    Dedication is great, but let’s not get carried away here!

    These are most likely the same people who were the first to grab the pitchforks to run guys like joe tereshinski and joe cox out of town. ratings aren’t perfect but a 5 star is more likely to be productive than a 3 star. talent matters i’ll take as many 5 star recruits as i can, all day every day.

    People are dillusional. I’ve never been one of those. I just want every 5 star we can get our hands on. And I’m upset when we sign 3 stars

    “Don’t feed me filets and then expect me to eat hamburgers.”

    Once fans get accustomed to a a commit coming to your program, it’s hard to handle when you’re “fed” a different scenario.

    What? Was there some sort of meltdown over the weekend? ;)

    Good question. We are, after all, talking about hormonal high school kids. I know I was pretty stupid when I was that age. And I was considered on of the smart kids.

    Why not the best of both worlds…five stars who are dedicated and are hungry.

    Because without those fans the ajc recruiting web site would cease to exist. We’re ‘desperate’ if a 5 star doesn’t commit. And if its a 3 star GA kid we never offered, then we ‘missed’.

    I love recruiting season – it brings out the stupid in all of college football.

    Recruiting rankings make preseason polls look like simple math.

    I think it’s because bray was only a four-star and not completely dedicated to being at his school. ;-)

    The only coach in the SEC capable of handling the Prima Donna 5-stars that think their S don’t stink is Lil Nickie. He will either break them of it or he will kick them to the curb for next years model.

    When I follow the “Atlanta Journal Constituion” link (on the right hand column of this blog), an AJC Home Page type screen appears. When I hover my mousie over “Sports”, there is a menu that includes GT, and Georgia State, but exludes UGA. ????? Maybe Georgia Stae IS “that other team in this state”.

    Our staff has been taken to the woodshed this past week in recruiting. Looks like we are losing out on all 6 of our top targets

    Recruitniks are in another world.

    The only thing more infuriating than a 5 star recruit holding out til the last minute is when June rolls around and you find out they won’t qualify anyway.
