    You are the Head Coach

    and you have one scholarship to give at a few different positions. Who do you use it on?

    Defensive tackle:

    DT from Illinois. 6-2, 250 lbs. Runs the 40 in 4.7 seconds, benches 400 max, squats 600 max, has a 3.1 GPA. Holds offers from Michigan State, Minnesota, Purdue, UCLA, and Wisconsin, in addition to your school.

    DT from Texas. 6-0, 286 lbs. Runs the 40 in 4.78 seconds. Holds offers from Ball State and Houston.

    Middle Linebacker:

    Your program needs immediate help here so you are planning on bringing in a JUCO for some quick help.

    LB. 6-3, 215 lbs. Runs the 40 in 4.6 seconds. Holds an offer from Nebraska.

    LB. 6-1, 245 lbs. Runs the 40 in 4.63 seconds. Holds offers from Toledo and UAB.

    Outside Linebacker:

    You have a great assistant coach who has really bonded with some highly ranked kids. You can take two of the three here.

    LB from Florida. 6-2, 225. 3.0 GPA, run a 4.42 40. Ranked the #1 overall OLB by Rivals. Holds offers from Miami, Auburn, Florida, and Florida State.

    LB from Illinois. 6-2, 217 pounds. Has a 2.6 GPA, runs a 4.57 40. Ranked the #2 overall OLB by Rivals. Holds offers from Ohio State, Miami and Oregon.

    LB from Ohio. 6-2, 230 pounds. Runs the 40 in 4.6 seconds. Holds offers from Ohio State and Penn State.

    Quarterback:

    QB from Texas. 6-0, 170 pounds. Runs a 4.69 40 with a 27 inch vertical. Offers from Syracuse, A & M, Baylor, and Houston.

    QB from California. 6-3, 190 pounds. Runs a 4.76 40. You are his only scholarship offer.

    Athlete:

    A few positions at your school could use some help, especially RB and DB, but not for a few years down the road. Bring in two of these athletes and see where they fit when you get them.

    ATH from Arkansas. 6-0 198 pounds. Runs a 4.38 40, benches 325 pounds. Has a 2.6 GPA. Offers from Tennessee and Alabama.

    ATH from Ohio. 6-0, 170 pounds. Runs a 4.4 40 with a 230 pound bench. 3.3 GPA. Offers from Pitt, USC, Miami and Ohio State.

    ATH from Alabama. 6-1, 180 pounds. Runs a 4.29 40, 260 bench. 38 inch vertical and a 3.5 GPA. Offres from Florida, LSU and Ole Miss.


    I'll tell you who they were tomorrow... if anyone leaves their picks I'll rank your recruiting class on signing day and tell you how the players panned out.


    have you ever got caught outside In a strong rainfall? Yes or NO. If it"s yes, then you might half felt the pane of hard(tought) rain on you head. If it hurt"s then it"s tough. Yes or no. Okay I'm right and you know it.

    So alothough you attempt"ed to say you didn"t understnad, now you do. Fair enough?

    Re: You are the Head Coach

    DT 2 star from texas (bigger body.. with less competion recruiting.. better chance of gettin him)

    LB 4 star (psh neb.. we can beat then to a recruit)

    OLB 5 star Ill and 3 star from ohio (only prob with ill is grades.. but is closer to home and dont have to compete with flor schools for him)(ohio biggest frame and could be a steal at 3 star)

    QB 2 star from Cal ( we have enough at this spot and he can improve on the bench)
    also has a bigger frame.. and we can call him sunshine.. (remember the titans..)

    ATH 4 star from Bama and 5 star from ohio (bama insane speed and good grades, ohio better grades.. could red shirt to put some bulk on him)

    Re: You are the Head Coach

    Top ranked at every position except maybe at athlete.

    I'm guessing these are some cherry picked recruits to show that stars don't mean anything.

    Re: You are the Head Coach

    I would take the 2 stars cuz they are the only ones we have a shot at considering the schools that the higher ranked players have after them.

    Re: You are the Head Coach

    I'm taking the 4* DT for the GPA. The 2* MIKE for the extra beef. Outside the 5* from FL and The 2* from Ohio (Penn St. is linebaker U for gods sake). 2* from Cali at QB (the 27inch Vert says he's not explosive). And the Aths from Ohio and Ala (GPAs and possible more room to grow)

    We're not helping you with you NCAA '08 recruiting anymore. Figure it out on your own while you're trying to build a dynasty.
