Recruiting class ranks can mean a lot of things. In years where you have less schollies to fill, your rank is almost automatically going to go down. Also, in the year after a great class, you are going to have trouble selling playing time if they're coming in after a big recruit at their position. To me, the cycle makes sense, and none of that looks bad at all.
Right. For example,I haven't researched this, but my gut tells me that the year after Peyton committed would have been a tough sell for a drop-back QB.
Paul Clark wanting Loney and not Fulmer. THAT is hilarious...and sad.
I still don't get this whole "love for Loney" thing. To me not only does it say "we can't do any better," it screams "we're not interested in doing any better."
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
I see your point. Anything over Top 20 is just not acceptable. Even if you throw in a Top 3.
I'm not saying anything about it being unacceptable. I was just pointing out that one of the previous posters had a valid argument that his recruiting recently has faded a bit. His 3 worst recruiting classes have come in the last 4 years.
I'm just saying that his ability to recruit may not be as great a selling point at this stage of his career.
For the record, based on the information we have at this point, I think Fulmer's the best option out there.
I respect Steve Loney but to me it is that same as taking a chance on a young coordinator. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't his only HC job at Drake? Let me think about that one...............National Championship winning HC or Drake HC??.....Times up........FULMER!!
