    Recruiting Thoughts

    As many of you know, our recruiting is looking terrible this year. In my opinion our best commit is Robert Standard a *** star running back who holds another offer from Nebraska. To me its good to have depth but really? We dont need anymore running backs. We already have S.Johnson, J.Woody, J.White, as well as D.Hollis.
    We virtually need every position but if i was recruiting i would be going for defensive players first. Many people on this website say CPR was and is a better recruiter than Chiz. I would like to know what you are smoking? Chiz brought in our best player David Sims along with other talents. Who has Rhodes brought in besides S.Johnson???

    As well as your recruiting thoughts?
    Also i do believe because of our football team we will be kicked out of the big 12 within 5 years and will be playing in the MAC.
    I know this thread has alot of twists and turns but i would like to know what you guys think about everything.

    Re: Recruiting Thoughts

    Well, I have no idea what conference we'll be playing in in 2016, but your point about our shaky recruiting is fair. I don't think we'll ever be able to answer who the better recruiter is, but CPR is superior in coaching, IMO.

    If we aren't able to start getting better talent, there is no way for us to make any gains on the field. I believe that our coaches are getting as much out of our current talent as we can hope for.

    Can we get better players? Time will tell, but I can say with certainty that if CPR doesn't recruit better talent, he can only hope for seasons like last year, where we end up 7-6 in a crappy bowl.

    You guys are babies, if you confront the problem head on it will get fixed sooner than later. But i guess you guys want to see our program go even deeper into a dumper.
    You think to yourself oh we will be better next year.

    Sam Richardson is an unbelievable get at QB. Tad Ecby looks to be a stud at WR too. Hopefully we find more DL and LB's though.

    Re: Recruiting Thoughts

    Let me be the first to say that I am glad that cyclonefanatics.com just has the most intelligible fan base in America when it comes to college football recruiting. I find hard to believe that these guys couldn't go into the college football coaching ranks since they have soooo much insight into recruiting. It's as they can make a judgment call by looking at an individuals BCS offers or height and weight measurement.

    O, I better add this just in case someone thinks I am serious.
