Lately, I haven’t had much to say about every Notre Dame fan’s favorite recruiting guru, but I did come across a classic “pot meet kettle” comment in this post-Signing Day chat transcript:
Los Angeles, CA: Notre Dame had the Scout and Rival No. 1 rated team for most of the 2008 recruiting period, but ended up with the No. 9 rated team on ESPN. Do Scout, Rival and ESPN use different player rating systems and can there be that much difference among them? Which is better?
Tom Lemming: ESPN has a different set of rankings. A lot of it is based on favoring players that play in their All-Star Game…
Gosh, it’s not like Lemming wouldn’t know anything about that.
I guess that’s what you’d call professional jealousy – depending on your definition of the word “professional”.
