    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Shouldn't that read "won't be down at all?" We do have 3 of the top 5 teams in the BcS, and a great shot at the "national championship."

    Big 12's Loaded Recruiting class

    7 of the top 25 classes belong to Big 12 schools according to Rivals. I don't mean to be Debbie-Downer here but our conference is shaping up to be the best conference in the nation.

    We simply HAVE to start recruiting better or I just don't see us competing against this kind of talent...

    Since you're going to be the Debbie-Downer, I will be the over-optomisitc homer.

    First, this is the early signing period.

    Second, sometimes rankings are straight up wrong. You can be a good recruiter but not as good of xs and os coach (Barnes for example), or you can be a so-so recruiter and a good xs and os coach (Dr. Tom). Look at ISU: Wesley Johnson was a 2 star player and he turned out to be much better

    Last, I still believe that if we build a good overall team, it doesn't really matter the rankings and such. We've seen George Masons, VCUs, Bradley's, etc. Look at Pitt even. They didn't have a headlining class like Duke or UNC but they usually have some pretty solid teams.

    I think that if you get the right guys for your system, then some of these rankings are overblown.

    Again, I'm trying to be optomistic. It isn't fun looking at your league getting incoming recruits and feeling behind them.

    I'm still hopeful we'll put together some great teams in the future!


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Or, like KU and KSU, jut hire the right "coaches" and the rest will fall into place.

    Re: Big 12's Loaded Recruiting class

    I wonder where the #1,3,& 4 recruits went as they were not listed. Have they not signed yet? or maybe they are in a class like the UAB kid, really good by themself but not with anyone else worth mentioning.
