***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.

    Brady Quinn was a first round pick in April. Thanks for playing, though.

      So all first round quarterbacks are good? How is Akili Smith doing? He wouldn't have been if Cleveland hadn't traded up. He isn't good. Sorry to dissapoint you, but he isn't. He has a sissy arm, and he'll probably be a career backup.

        I don't know where to begin, here.

        A) You're assuming he'll suck, and have absolutely no evidence to support your opinion. There's a reason Cleveland traded up, and that's because the other teams that would have drafted a QB in the first place were coming up. It's not like other QBs were drafted in that time. Only JaMarcus was taken ahead of him in terms of QBs.

        B) Akili Smith sucked in the NFL. But he was a great college QB who turned into a great pro prospect. Good enough for NFL scouts to think he was worthy of a top-5 pick. After he got to the pros, he sucked. You can blame that on a number of things. Injuries, a lack of a supporting cast, poor coaching at the pro level, but not what happened in college.

        C) I don't see how he has a sissy arm. But if he did, then how is that against Weis? It would mean he turned a QB with an awful arm into a first round pick by making him a fantastic college QB. As far as recruiting goes, coaches don't give two shits about how good of a pro prospect a guy is, but how he'll help the college team. If Quinn never pans out in the NFL, Notre Dame fans won't discount his near-Heisman win and great play.

          Dayne dominated the toughest league in the nation already, no QB plays the comp he does. Dayne also already outperformed Manuel at the elite 11 camp, Manuel will be another Xavier Lee. I already made my case about Pryor before.

            No, EJ won't be like Xavier Lee. EJ Manuel has something Xavier Lee doesn't have. WORK ETHIC.

              I'd like the record to show that I'm not a big Crist fan, and I think Manuel will be an absolute star. But to say that coaching has anything to do with it is insane.

                im probally gonna get ripped apart for this... AJ Green cause Georgia dosent have a good track record of producing elite recievers, which is why Calvin Johnson made a great move at GT he woulda been killed in georgia's offense

                same with Christ unless he decommits like he shoulda a long time ago but i hear hes a firm ND commit so thers no way Weis is benching Clausen so hes kinda stuck...

                Jermie Calhoun or Justin Johnson, whoever ends up having to change their position, think AD and DJ Wolfe

                  I'll go with Michael Floyd per scout's rankings. Burton Scott per rivals.

                    Really, that won't hurt him too much. Clausen will be a soph next year, and Crist can redshirt. Then if Clausen leaves after his junior year, Crist would be the probable starter as a RS sophomore.

                      I think Pryor has the highest bust potential, but he also has easily the highest upside.

                        What exactly makes up the toughest competition in the nation that Crist faced? With all the high schools in the nation and how different each state is, how could you possibly make a statement like that? There's way too many varibles to know what the toughest competition is at the high school level.

                        What makes Crist accomplishments any better then a guy like Jacory Harris? He led Miami Northwestern to 2 straight undefeated seasons and had them ranked as the number 1 team in all of High School football. It's not like Florida is a sloutch when it comes to football. We produce some of the nations top talent every year.

                        I just don't see how you can make a statement like that about Crist when there are other QBs that deserve just as much if not more credit for their play then Crist.

                              I do like Jacoby Harris once he gains a little beef he could be a great one I liked what i saw on tape of him... I personally think he'll be playin on sundays maybe not at QB if he dosent gain weight but somewhere

                                agreed. I don't really know If Pryor will be a bust or not, but Jeannette does not play the top teams in PA.
