    Marcus Mariota

    Marcus Mariota - Yahoo! Sports.

    Just thought I'd share this for all those people out there that think stars really matter. Likely number 1 pick in the draft this year, was a 3 star with 2 offers. Just goes to show you never know how certain players will develop.

    Re: Marcus Mariota

    Thank god you are here to tell us that. We are forever in your debt.

    Did you know Jake Knott was a 2 star recruit?

    Here's the deal, I will take a 20 sided die and you can have a 6 sided one. We will roll against each other, high score wins. You might beat me every once in a while, but I'll be damned if I am going to pick the 6 sided die over the 20....

    Oregon also has a better coaching staff than we do right now.

    Good point. I bet if you look up Alabama's roster it's filled with 2 and 3 stars.

    This is the right answer. Those evaluators miss, but they aren't missing them all. And talent matters.

    Mariota will not be a good NFL QB. I hope Minnesota takes him.

    I think this has it the best for an example. I think of *s not as absolutes, but as ranges of probability. In all likelihood, across hundreds of high school students, the average ***** is better than the average **** and all the way down. Have a roster with eighty players? This starts to kick in:

    Law of large numbers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    After that, you are playing from behind, like it or not.

    Yep. And just because I roll a 1 with a 20 sided die and you rolled a 2, doesn't make the 20 sided worse over 20-25 rolls per year.

    Don't ever try to use logic with the star-tards at Cyclone Fanatic. They have an obsessive need for validation from the snake oil salesmen. It's quite a racket, and just goes to show you that there is a sucker born every minute.

    And Eric Crouch also threw more interceptions than TD's the year he won the Heisman.

    That's a nice overreaction.
    Stars don't mean everything, but seeing the teams with those players win over and over and over again isn't a coincidence every time.

    He was actually a one star but got two extra stars because of his hair.
