  • I honestly thought Ole Miss was on the up and up and just having a lucky year... I'm starting to come around to them doing SOMETHING wrong.

      I'm still trying to figure this kid out and decide whether I'll be happy or not if he signs with us. He's a BEAST at LB and seems like a genuinely likeable, smart kid, but something about his attitude worries me. He's flip-flopped too much and seems to be trying to play everybody. I just get the feeling he's always going to be a "me first" sort of guy and not a team player. If he's in Tuscaloosa instead of Auburn tonight, that's good in a way, but I have some reservations about him.
      Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

      • Glad to see a school and staff take a stand, although I wonder what they expected. Clearly Evans asked Bryant to go with him in hopes of landing an offer, and it seems obvious Bryant was never interested in FAU.

        • Sounds like Chris Jones made it down to Oxford for another late night weekend visit to Ole Miss

          Some sources reported Jones visited late Friday night but he denied it, some of the sources still claim he did.

          He was at an MSU bball game this afternoon

                • 6/8 said Ashawn to Texas to. Farrell was surprisingly right on that one.

                    Confused by that, they literally just updated the list a minute ago to take off Lawson and Ashawn is still there, didn't he name them his leader/said he was going to sign with them?

                            That means he's going to ND.

                            • I went to a college hoops game this week with a buddy of mine who is a big booster for the school he attended. He told me one of his fraternity brothers who coached at couple of the big name high schools out here in the West (schools everyone knows) is now one of the paid scouts/recruiters. He said pretty much every big name BB recruit someone has been paid to have them land where they end up. If this is so prevelant in college hoops, you have to wonder how much this is happening in college football, where there is way more money for a school to gain by having a great program.

                              By the way, this guy is set up in the Cayman Islands (I believe is what my buddy said) to cover the money trail. I also remember when he was at these big name high schools how much free Nike stuff he used to get.

                                                                                      The evidence is overwhelming: Despite some obvious, anecdotal exceptions, on the whole recruiting rankings clearly are useful for creating a realistic baseline for expectations. But the narrower your focus, the less useful they will become.

                                                                                      The massively hyped, five-star recruit headlining your team's next recruiting class may be an irredeemable bust; he is also many times more likely than a scrappy three-star to pan out as an All-American and move on to the next level. Somewhere, an under-scouted afterthought with a chip on his shoulder will almost certainly go on to defy the odds, become a star and maybe win the Heisman Trophy. But that doesn't change the odds, which are against him becoming anything more than an obscure role player, at best. Inevitably, a team full of afterthoughts at the bottom of the rankings will defy the odds, catch fire, pull a few upsets and storm its way into a BCS bowl. But that doesn't change the odds, which are in favor of the same team dwindling on the edge of bowl eligibility. And just as inevitably, the eventual national champion will emerge from the ranks of the handful of teams that consistently come out on top on signing day.

                                                                                      The exceptions prove the rule: Overwhelmingly, setting aside every other conceivable factor that determines success and failure -- injuries, academics, even coaching -- individual players and teams tend to perform within the very narrow range their initial recruiting rankings suggest. Some percentage of both groups will not. But when it comes to forming expectations, it should go without saying that you never want to count on being one of the anomalies.
                                                                                      Well worth your time.

                                                                                        Well worth your time.
                                                                                        Great article...The one thing I can say is that walkons, 2, and 3 star guys tend to face what I call star inertia...basically if a coach got a 4 or 5 star kid to come play, his reputation and credibility hang with those guys a bit...so 4 and 5 star guys are VERY hard to unseat in the 2 deep even when they aren't performing "better" than the 3 star...this is when we start to hear words like upside, etc.

                                                                                        Its not an even contest...in cases where both the 3 star and 4/5 star could be a future AA, the 4/5 is gonna get the opportunity.

                                                                                        I don't refute the conclusion of the article, but being a 4 or 5 star coming in paves your way to a longer leash, more attention, so in terms of opportunity, 4s and 5s have more.
                                                                                        One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
