***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

  • Possible revokes of commitments?

    With all the big name coaching changes at schools, how can this affect national signing day? Will, most notably, michigan and arkansas be vastly affected or will petrino and whatever big name michigan signs right the respective ships?

  • #2
    I expect A&M, LSU, and the above to all be affected. Either by recruits overlooking those programs completely or backing out of commitments completely.

      I'm just going out on a limb here, but I don't think too many people went to Michigan to play for Lloyd Carr specifically.

      I think a program like Michigan is going to be able to recruit no matter who their coach is.

      Arkansas might be a different story, but Petrino is arguably an upgrade, so probably not.


      Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

        As far as A&M goes, they lost a much-needed top-250 DB (Markelle Martin out of Wichita Falls, four stars on Rivals) and one of the top junior DB's in Craig Loston out of Houston.

        On the flip side, after Sherman came to campus they convinced a Top 150 WR to jump ship from Oklahoma in order to round out their class. He's a four-star prospect according to Rivals, but if you believe what's coming from the people within the program he was much better than Rivals gave him credit for.

        It sounds like a give-and-take. The Ags' weakest positions at this point are LB and WR, but they have some young studs who may or may not step up and become key players next year (most notably Von Miller at LB and Roger Holland at WR). What they lost, though, were some young, much-needed DB's. The Ags have some athletes they recruited who may slide into DB, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

        Basically, it's been a wash, but from the sound of things there's a little buzz about A&M around the recruiting community. A lot are waiting to see what Sherman does before committing, so we may have to wait until next year before we see anything, but they still have that last scholly open in case they pick up a big recruit between now and the end of the year. If they pick up another four- or five-star, it'll wind up being every bit the class that Fran had lined up. It's already top ten. I guess we'll see.

          Darron Thomas decommited from LSU, think it had to do something with the coaches saying something and doing something else. Decided on Oregon over Florida. Think LSU lost another QB too

            Yeah LSU had Darron and D C Jefferson committed, but DC did not want to deal with competition according to his coach so he backed out and went back to Rutgers.

            Darron was upset with LSU having 3 QB's committed and the word was he would be moved to another position, so he left as well.

              On what grounds? LSU is only missing a DC and once Tenuta comes we will have one of the best overall coaching staffs in the nation.

                  as happy as i am rutgers got DC i still believe once a player commits he should stick with it as he should sign his LOI right from the start not change around... well if that were the case DC woulda been at rutgers from the start he'll be beastly for us

                  and seriously how many qbs do LSU need they got one thats enough and hes a good one... not the best but good

                    Darron Thomas decommitted because he wanted to play QB and he wasn't going to at LSU, I think.

                    DC Jefferson knew he was never going to get onto the field, if for no other reason than because LSU already had a guy better than him in the class (Jordan Jefferson is a stud)

                        well if they want to take on players who can not deal with competition then good luck to them, lol.

                          Yeah Darron left because apprantley they lied to him and said they were only recruiting one QB

                            No exactly, it had more to do with LSU telling him one thing and doing another. He actually wouldnt mind playing WR (said its his fav position). Hes going to Oregon where he knows they are after Pryor and good chance get Chris Harper.
