    We are only taking silent commits so other schools don't immediately offer our guys.

    Nope, I'm pretty sure they are asking the recruits to not announce their decision until they have a Cyclone Day when the whole class of high 3, 4 and 5 star recruits all announce at once. It will be a huge splash on ESPN.

    Re: 2013 Football Recruits

    Anyone think the reason we having signed anyone is because we have a lot of depth now, so we are being a little more selective?

    If that's the case, the reason would be "We are completely striking out on our targets". Other schools are getting commits despite being more selective.

    That being said, I'm not worried.

    Just e-mailed JP, asking him to can Rhoads and get a REAL coach in here. I'll let you know what he says.

    Re: 2013 Football Recruits

    They're trying a new strategy and phasing out recruiting. Over the next few years as the roster shrinks, they'll just start calling out ticket seat numbers on the PA before games and those lucky ticket holders will get to suit up and play that day.

    I would be worried if we had no recruits and Chizik was still our coach.

    So is everyone just going to joke about it and ignore the topic?

    Who knew free college was such a hard sell . That being said I'm a little nervous.

    Re: 2013 Football Recruits

    I'm not really. We don't have as many opening as usual(I could be wrong I'm not looking but I feel thats correct) this year. It seems like most of our real good commits commit during or near the end of the year. I'm fine with us being more selective instead of just grabbing some of those lesser commits right off the bat.

    Plus I think the ones who commit already more more likely to back out and switch anyways.
