    Recruiting Stars do Matter

    and this OU games proves it. They just flat out have better rated players that have a way higher ceiling than our guys. OU's game plan was perfect. Just wear us the hell out and it did that. There d=fense with a bunch of 4 and 5 star recruits on the field made it so we could not run, pass, or throw. There offense made our defense look bad.
    I am really nervous about this years recruiting class. It looks like a Dan McCarney type class the last two years he was coaching. Not a lot of kids with other BCS offers and commiting to us because we were the only big program to offer them.

    Stop it, whiner. Just stop.

    Take a deep breath, and realize there is a reason you have that username.

    I think most people agree stars matter. They are better athletes and that help. As long as you have a DECENT coach.

    I just get sick of the people who act like 5 and 4 star recruits don't mean anything. Aclone. WTF are you talking about. Making a post about recruiting is not whining. It's stating my opinion.

    People need to get a grip and realize that we aren't going to consistently bring in 3 and 4 star players until we have a few 7-8 win seasons in a row

    You still need good coaching.. You can't just run them out there. If you have good coaching and high upside players then you will win. Look at Bama. they get the best players every year. The highest rated guys and good coaching and they win. Texas right now is bad coaching. That is the bottom line.

    We've looked like we belonged on the field with everyone on a very tough schedule. Silly thread is silly.

    I am not a coach. What are you talking about. Why are you refusing to have a discusion about recruiting without making it feel like we are talking politics. It's a simple discusion. Get out of it if you have to make it more than that. The discusion if you can't remember is about getting players with more stars compared to less and me not being really excited about this years recruiting class because I see what one bad recruiting class can do to a team from the McCarney years.

    So if that's the problem then shouldn't we fire Rhoads and bring in a coach that can bring in recruits with stars?
