    Star Check

    Just for the sake of starting a different type of thread besides the Mac vs. Chiz, I did a chjeck of the big 12 schools on Scout to see how current recruiting is going. I then chose the largest group of players that have been dubbed **2 star thru ***** star. I then gave the school a ranking what the star talent level apprears to be so far in this recuiting season from Scout.

    Scout.com: Football Recruiting

    My humble take:

    ****4 star: Texas, Oklahoma

    ***3 star: Okie State, kNe, aTm, KU, TT, & MO

    ***3 star with very few recruits: CU

    **+2.5 star: Baylor

    **2 star: ISU, KSU

    This suggests that scout again is underating our talent and that we are finding diamonds in the rough..

    Or you could take the Debbie Downer approach and say we still have a LOT of work to do on the recruiting front. Having some "Money" is a good start....

    Just for the record, VA is a 2 star school with 20 recruits - mostly smaller guys recruited than behomouths so far this year

    And U of I is basically 2 star:

    Well, that's one way to interpret it I guess. It could also suggest that Texas, Oklahoma, and most every other Big XII team is recruiting more talent than we are.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.
