    Worst College Recruiting Website Ever

    It's not even close. This is as bad as it gets. Very embarrassing for the dozens of Minnesota football fans.

    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.

    Re: Worst College Recruiting Website Ever

    I am guessing somewhere on the site it says something positive about Pollard, that is why he thinks it's the worst.

    I think it's pretty sweet. We don't have anything even close to that that I'm aware of...

    I have to say that the moving Nav bar is a little irritating.

    Site was easy to use. Very flashy for younger kids. Impressive facilities. Too bad they don't have a football team.

    Again Monty... Your wrong. I seem to notice a pattern around here Hibbard. Do you have a negative look at everything?? I swear your real name is Bruce Van De Velde

    The intro was pretty bad. Maybe BlackHeartGoldPants wasn't too far off..

    Re: Worst College Recruiting Website Ever

    Looks like a great idea to me, can't see it having much of a negative effect, if a net negative at all. I would love to see an example of what the OP would call a good recruiting website. The only positive that Brewster has had going for him is his perception as a good recruiter.

    I agree it is a great idea, I just don't like the nav bar on it, other than that it's a great site.

    I happily read BHGP every couple of months. I always wind up laughing until I drool. I love every one of Paterno's conversations. I don't care if it's written by Hawks, it's hilarious writing.

    For example, you NEEEEED to read/see these:

    http://www.blackheartgoldpants.com/2...53270/its-back

    I am literally crying right now.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: Worst College Recruiting Website Ever

    It's a great website if you're hawking Ginsu knives or a garish hotel/casino. It's pathetic for recruiting student-athletes to a major university. Way over-the-top self promotion by Brewster. Lots of style, no substance. There are reasons there are no "play4mackbrown", "play4urbanmeyer", "play4joepaterno", or any similar websites for programs run by mature, successful coaches. Any recruit who makes a life-changing decision based on that is not someone I would want on my team...not to mention someone who will likely not belong academically at even the U of M anyway.

    I agree with you, if that is reason a recruit picks Minnesota something is wrong. However, if that site is an addition to his recruiting it is a plus, and it seems he has had no problem bringing in some decent classes the last couple years, now only if he could coach. Comparing old school coaches and programs such as those above to a Minnesota is not a fair comparison, finding the current trends and edge is a must, while staying within the rules (Lane Kiffen). I know I just wasted my time with this post but what the heck, slow Sunday night.
