    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    I don't give a ****. I'll take the 15 players taken by our overachieving coaching staff vs. Colorado's 5 players that are being recruited by a guy that has been a HUGE bust.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    Do no stars mean that the players just haven't been rated yet? In that case that's dragging down the rankings.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    They also haven't rated 6 of our players yet. Counting them out we have 9 recruits averaging 2.67 stars. This beats Colorado, Baylor, Missouri, Kansas, and K-State in avg stars. Now I realize that it says something that they haven't been rated but the numbers are very skewed.

    They're just averaging the star rating of the recruits. It has nothing to do with the number of commits. Recruiting ranking services are a scam anyway.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    Quality over Quantity is what rivals is going for. The Colorado recruits have a higher Rivals Rating and therefore more points as a team. If the guys we have are who Rhoads wants, then thats fine with me.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    I think the coaching staff is getting a lot of the players that they have targeted and that is really what matters. We are never going to be ranked high and will finish dead last or close to last every year in the conference. As long as they are getting the guys they want, who cares what rivals thinks.

    Yes. No stars in Rivals means they haven't evaluated that player yet, either on tape or live.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    Let me ask a question about "Stars". How many stars did our freshmen punter have at this time last year? He seems to be doing a pretty admirable job and I don't recall him being some 4 star recruit. I'd have more faith in our coaching staff's ability to evaluate talent and less on some recruiting service who is trying to evaluate every high school player in country.

    This is the site I was told to look at when I was told our recruiting situation was bad.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    And in 2006 they ranked us #11 and Texas #1, how did that work out for those seniors?

    It doesn't matter since we won't be playing them.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    The recruiting rankings are completely subjective too. Its not like one guy is watching every player. Some people have different opinions on what a 3 star player looks like. What one guy considers a 3 star another might consider a 2.

    Re: according to rivals we are being outrecruited by colorado

    check back in a few years when we are competing for top half of the division, not only will recruiting improve with the more success we have - the opinions of our recruits in the ranking process will improve too! Watch the unranked guys that Iowa recruits and see how many stars they get vs our unranked guys...till then trust that our coaching staff is geting the guys they 1)think they can get and 2) want. It would be different if we were offering all our recruits late in the process because we missed out on 1 and 2.
