***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.

    im just telling you this was the only year our defense didnt suck and it was cuz our dline was good

    a former all-american db said gibson was clueless and had no technique; the only reason he is coaching d-1 is cuz him and rod go back; the guy couldnt even play in the wviac

    hes a coffee runner
    Well I guess it's a shame we all can't get the kind of coaches that couldn't cut it at Virginia Military and as OC for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

      no one wins at vmi---no winning seasons since the early 80s

      and hes just gonna be a ceo and actually let his oc and dc call the plays and not override them like rod does

      dave johnson---oline coach; former te coach at uga; coached probowlers in randy mcmichael, ben watson and 2nd round pick leonar pope; definately upgrade over greg frey

      david lockwood---db coach; former minnesota dc; coached here in the late 90s when our defense was good; former uk db coach; upgrade over starbucks gibson

      jeff mullen---oc/qb coach; def upgrade over rod smith as qb coach; coached ben mauk and riley skinner; smith was going to get fired at usf; as oc hes unproven but jim grobe said hes a good hire; wash at oc due to the fact that magee was the oc in name only

      chris beatty---rb coach; one of the bright young minds in cfb; will get some of the best prospects out of the va tidewater area; also was a oc at d-1aa hampton

      doc holliday---te/fb coach; top 5 recruiter in the country

      steve dunlap---safeties coach; former marshall, syracuse, and wvu dc; defense had the #1 ranking in '96; always gave us trouble when we played against him

      coach k---great dline coach; strength of our defense this year

      jeff casteel---defense had the #4 overall ranking this year; coordinator of the year by rivals; good recruiter; was the reason we got tevita finau who is the best dlineman we've ever recruited (wanted by ou, fla, usc)

      all these guys had legitamate d-1 expieriance before goin to big programs; all the former coaches went from the wviac to wvu

      and rod doesnt know how to change the system to a non-running qb; we had one in scott mcbrien, rod basically forced him to transfer cuz he cant run and he kicked our butts for 2 yrs; see 2005 pre pat white; that was painful to watch a dropback passer run the option

        Whatever, RR had a great deal of success at WVU doing what he did. And of course Stewart will let his OC and DC do their jobs with no interference. He's too incompetent to do otherwise.

        Top 5 recruiter in the country at a good school. He's a great recruiter, but Florida sells itself.

        Yes, because, as has been said numerous times, it's not like a QB under RR has never put up insane passing numbers before.

          he still ran the spread option when we had no running qb

          he came in, took over a 7-5 team, insisted on being a spread option team and we preceded to go 3-8

          hes 21-22 against ranked teams; 28-22 w/o pat white

          and doc was a great recruiter at nc state

            Top 5 in the country, though?

            And seriously, RR can coach circles around Stewart. It's not even comparable.

                I've already agreed upon that thought. I'm just saying he won't be anywhere near as successful at WVU. Nobody can be as successful leaving UF unless it's for OSU or USC.

                  we also have chris beatty to recruit va tidewater---he is liked by the coaches in that area

                  holliday was great at wvu (he was a coach here under nehlen)

                  brought in guys such as jericho cotchery, mario williams, etc to nc st

                  dave johnson will be great in ga

                    He won't put together classes like Florida got, but that doesn't mean he's not a great recruiter. Zook was a great recruiter at Florida and he's doing the same stuff at Illinois. You never know.

                        Patrick Johnson is probably the biggest recruit LSU has had in the last 6-7 years.

                          pretty sure we'll have a better team for at least the next two years, so have fun with 4 wins next year. also, you took john beline from us, we got bob huggins, who had bill walker, and michael beasley come to a terible basketball school to come play for him. but i digress, this isnt basketball forum.

                          as of right now, notre dame isnt much of a rival, you beat a team who one three times. your main rival, the only really good team, has had and will probably have your number for the next couple years. i never said this was a rivalry nor did i declare it was, i think you michigan fans have talked about how it isnt a rivalry more than we [wvu fans] have talked about it being one.

                            Notre Dame won three times, thank you very much.

                            I don't get your point, though. Just because one team isn't good for a year or two, it doesn't mean the rivarly goes away. To suggest that is insane.

                              oh yeah my bad. i honestly just stopped paying attention to notre dame last year. i agree that rivalary doesnt go away but it kind of loses some of the luster for that year when the one team is just that bad. i was more refering to the point that michigan cant beat their main rival, and the only real competition that any of their 3 rivals produced
