***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.

  • Recruiting Busts

    Discuss your finest recruiting busts here.

    Miami : Bryce and Arthur Brown.. these guys are clowns. Arthur simply could not understand any type of defensive scheme and by all accounts was extremely soft. Bryce never even attended Miami but the circus this guy brought was just ridiculous.

    Bryce isn't a bust. Arthur yeah, but Bryce will and has contributed when he was on the field. Both are very athletic, but one of them plays a posistion where there isn't much thinking.

      For a guy rated #1 overall in his class, he was/is a bust.

          From my school Da "U" our biggest bust was none other then Ryan Moore himself. Coming out of HS he was rated the #1 overall WR in the 02' class. Throughout his 4 years with us, he did not make a name for himself at all on the college level. My expectations for Ryan were real high especially by him being rated #1, he did not even get his name called in the 07' draft. Where is the once big time WR at now?

              Did they teach you how to use the bold button while you attended Da U?

              Epic bust = Ryan Perrlithug. Sabotaged UT and LSU.

              Medium bust = Chris Simms

              Average bust = Jermaine O'Neal

                      Marvin Austin could be considered a bust, since he's never produced what we expected.

                        This list is so lengthy, FSU has had a number of high recruits who never make it on campus and then flunk out of JC. But some guys who actually made it...

                        Lorenzo Booker was the number 1 recruit when he came out, he was suppose to be Reggie Bush before Reggie Bush. He ended up just being average and I always felt like he should have been moved to WR. He would fall down if you breathed on him.

                        Xavier Lee was too dumb and lazy to do anything at FSU besides party. He had a couple moments where he looked like the truth (come back against Alabama), but his work ethic was sooo poor and his 4th year in the program he still didn't know the playbook.

                        Fred Rouse was suppose to be the next Randy Moss, and looked promising early. But alas he had a terrible head on his shoulders, was kicked out of FSU, went to UTEP. Sucks, was arrested after he left and then tried to trash the program for "steering football players toward easier majors." Ass clown.

                          Too many to name for Ole Miss.

                            Kelly Baraka was a massive bust, but I didn't follow recruiting at that time so it wasn't devastating to me. Boubacar Cissoko, Kevin Grady, and Marques Slocum all also failed to live up to the hype.

                              Boubacar out-thugged MoC, which is impressive.
