    Sounds like Bobby Petrino Jr. I hope he doesn't own a motorcycle.

    Agreed, he left the team high and dry for their Bowl Game. Some say the Irish put pressure on him recruiting etc... But he could have stayed for the game

    Well I guess I was wrong. The game wasn't over by halftime, it was a done deal by the end of the 1st.

    I knew it was going to be a blow out, but I was hoping ND would be much better than I expected. I turned off the game at halftime. I think ND will have another great season next year, but no hopes of a NC appearance.

    I also think Bama will be tough again, but I don't see 3 in a row. I think the crystal football may end up at Texas A&M next year.

    Good luck next season ND fans.

    RTR!!

    Funny how people now think Texas A&M is like some kind of powerhouse. They have been pretty much insignificant in college football since the SWC days. In other words, forever. They have always been losers and will continue to be. The rest of the SEC has now figured out sumlins gimmick offense and Johnnyboy will learn what pain is next year. They will lose 3 or more next year. One thing about A&M, they consistently lose when expectations are high.

    ND got a top 3 recruiting class coming in somehow. Going to be interesting to see if those recruits stay if Kelley leaves for NFL. Texas had its worst class under Mac (10th). A&M actually had a top 7 class this year. Going to be interesting to see how everything shakes out next year. I think A&M will be better than you give them credit for. Then again, who knows.

    I'm a Michigan guy so it pains me to say this, but osu will be a player in the bcs from here on out.  Meyer is recruiting well, and I don't think the rest of the Big10 has enough to keep up.

  • Bad news for Alabama is that they open next season with us (VT).  Since we played our bowl game on December 27th this year we're going to have 10 days fresher legs for that game.  Couple that with the possiblity that Alabama loses both 1st and 2nd string offense and defense to the NFL draft and we can make a game of it.

    Don't always go by recruiting ratings. Scout, Rivals and 247 are jokes. UGA is consistently a Top 10 recruiting team, but rarely a top 10 team. Same goes for a lot of teams. Great coaches can evaluate talent a lot better than some nobody at those agencies above. Plus great coaches can take average players and make them really good. Good players, great.

    Actually in the 11 years or so Richt at UGA they've finished top 10 like 7 or 8 times. 5 SEC East titles, 2 SEC titles. Top 5 (I think 3rd) with number of wins in country since Richt took over. They've done everything but with nat'l title
    Boom

    And they are far from jokes. Of course not 100%. Prognostication rarely is. But it's pretty accurate considering all the variables (injuries, player maturity, coaching turnover and quality, etc) bc if not wouldn't be in business. Look at top 25 recruiting classes last 5 years and compare to polls. About 15 or so from list will be top 25 in polls. I'd rather my team get the top ranked players consistently than get the 1 star players consistently.
    Boom
  • FanOfFanboysFanOfFanboys Posts: 1,567
    Now I agree some coaches her much more out of players than others. And some can get guys not ranked and know they have potential to be stars. And some overachieve, say Boise St, and some underachieve, say UGA. But if UGA had won just 1 natty or BSt lost to Oklahoma then those examples would probably be very different. But recruiting rankings are like the draft.

    Problem is if this becomes a pissing match, neither side gives and he bolts out of spite.  One thing the Irish are : stubborn (just ask my wife)
    As some one whose grandmother was orange and my grandfather was green, I know all to well the "stubborn-ness" of the Irish, the trouble is in the case of the national championship game, although I cheered for the Irish, it quickly became apparent there was no ground to stand - terribly outclassed by a great football team.

    You'll get no argument with that here. Fully agreed and stated immediately following the game.
