  • Is an LSU Coach Sabotaging UCLA Recruiting Efforts? - Bruins Nation

    Must read. The best part is the writer talking about how Jim Mora is too classy. Bullshit! TJ below this article on II commented on the irony of the powder blueists calling out LSU for dirty recruiting. What a joke all this has become. Mora a dirt bag and LSU is trying to beat him at his own game.

      That article is pure crap. I wonder how the writer typed it up while giving Mora a Western Grip HJ.

      • Clearly a delusional UCLA grad for a writer.

        • Say what you want about Mora but that is bullshit. Total SEC move. If UCLA gets 2 out of those 3 guys that's unbelievable all the Louisana kids not going to LSU.

            ^^This, but not just this. These kids are given 5 all-expense-paid chances to make a life decision. It's one thing to talk to them and say, "hey, we like you, don't visit them". It's entirely different to sit next to them on a plane, stay in their hotel and completely ruin a trip for them. That's stalkerish, unethical and disrespectful to the kids. I hope it backfires on LSU big time. Hate Mora, but hate this move even more.

              There is no word on whether Cameron had any contact with Dupre on the flight. If he did, I'm guessing it wasn't to tell Dupre or the others that U.C.L.A. is one of the top 2 or 3 public schools in the U.S. and the degree is invaluable. Or that the Bruins' football program is already in the national championship conversation. Or that Dupre could be an immediate game breaker kind of player reeling in passes from a Heisman trophy candidate. Or that breakfast at Headlines is awesome.

                    So nice that we play them the last week of the season. Will have no depth by then.

                      if we assume that they have roughly 15 players in each class (Frosh - Senior) and a handful of 5th years (5), that would mean it would be until roughly the 2016 or 2017 season until they are full strength.

                      Super Bowl Pete really made out in this deal......

                            I have no idea, but that would be my guess. If UCLA was flipping a 5 star, he would seem to be the likely candidate.

                                        I thought this was an interesting piece and I didn't see it anywhere else.

                                        From the article: "We just keep recruiting until the first Wednesday in February every year," UCLA defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Angus McClure said

                                            According to the source, academic support was the biggest reason why the Teuhemas decided they won't end up at Texas. LSU coaches impressed the Teuhema family this weekend by stressing academics throughout their visit, and by the end of the weekend the family was ready for a change of plans.

                                            • Whenever I see something like this, I think of my old 2003 PS2 NCAA Football game where you just pick one of 4 strategies to pitch to recruits. I would go through all 4 of them until I found the one that the recruit liked and then keep pitching it. Basically just telling them what they wanted to hear even though it mght not even be remotely true. But since the SEC is a bastion of academic institutions, I can see where LSU's pitch seems legit.

First time at my new gig I'll be working from home tomorrow, and for those that will stuck at their desks, I will start a thread for 'note able commits' only. I'm not feeling clever at the moment so I will name the thread "note able LOIs"

                                                  Will be under recruiting category. Strictly listed players and school, no discussion.

                                                  • I don't really care how it comes off... I feel honestly bad for anyone that gets "sold on LSU academics"... It's like JuJu Smith putting on the ND hat tomorrow and stating "I was totally sold on their hookers. “

                                                    EDIT: Of course he could have been sold on the lack of academics.........

                                                      My initial reaction was a similar "lolwut?" But upon closer inspection, LSU's minority GSR is significantly better than UT's. So, if you're set on attending a football factory, but you also sorta care about gettin' skooled, then UT to LSU for academic reasons might be legit.

                                                        If that is really what sells you on a program I think it's fair to say you probably "thanks, but no thanks" to both of them...

                                                          Agreed. Was just pointing out that a recruit could switch from UT to LSU for plausible academic reasons.

So, if you're set on attending a football factory, but you also sorta care about gettin' skooled, then UT to LSU for academic reasons might be legit.

I'd go with them if you are interested in volume of coverage. I think ISD has proven to be the most objective and accurate, but they are just ND and don't provide the rankings and national services of others. But their message board and posters are better than Blue and Gold's by a good margin IMO.
