    Default OT: another stellar recruiting class at Texas Tech

    We are gonna need a lot of sunshine pumping from the Tech crowd over the next few years. The only positive is that Tech wasn't dead last in Power 5 this year. Tech got one 4-star player.

    Folks shouldnt put alot of stock in those rankings. Most services rate the kids on ideal characteristics for Alabama, possible pro level future athletes.

    Im Sure Army's senior class when signed was probably lower than every other team they played seniors. They only lost 2 games one was an OT loss to Oklahoma, and they flat beat the pants off houston, in every facet of their bowl game.

    College teams work based on programs, Washington st hasnt torn up the recruiting polls but is a top 25 team.

    Now im not saying Tech isnt going to suck but.....USC and a couple other teams win the recruiting titles often, yet havent been in discussion fir a national title in a decade or more, much less conference titles.

    ?

    There's a direct correlation between great recruiting classes and winning championships. USC hasnt won a recruiting title in eons. They were #20 yesterday.

    Nick Saban said he pays no attention to stars when offering a kid. He said in the last 10 years Alabama has offered 8 kids who had NO Stars and over 20 Kids who were 2 Star Recruits when they offered them. Within a week of being offered by Alabama they were all moved up to 4 star recruits by rivals. I agree the teams that sign the best classes win at a much higher level. I just don't believe the people ranking the classes really have any ideal who REALLY signed the best players.

    This is exactly how it works.

    If two players are exactly the same, the one committed to Alabama will be a 4 star while the one committed to UAB will be a 2 star.

    So UAB has comparable talent to Alabama because the recruiting rankings are bunk ?

    1. Rank teams based on the average recruiting rank for the past three years. The teams playing for the national championship will invariably be from the top 10. More often than not from the top five.

    2. The lower the division the less reliable recruiting rank becomes. The four and five star athletes who sign with power schools have invariably been closely scrutinized at numerous camps and graded multiple times based on HUDL tapes. The two and three star athletes who sign with lower tier FBS, FCS, D2 and D3 schools are not vetted as closely by recruiting services and there are more errors. A lot of quality athletes Who don’t go to summer camps aren’t ranked at all. At these levels vetting by the coaching staff becomes more important along with a stellar player development program.

    Just my two cents worth.

    All good points. But 99 out of 100, a top 10 player is EXACTLY that. And THAT player IS going to a top 20, and most likely, a top 10 school.

    What do you bet that Colby will have the LumberJacks in the FCS playoffs in a couple of seasons? Optimism is running high down in Nacogdoches!

    What were they last year? year before? so on and on..... Clemson was 9th last year according to Espn's info, USC is 20th this year, 19th last year. finished 5-7 last year.....

    Recruiting matters, but only so much as your recruits produce results on the field....you can be top 25 in recruiting all you want if your not getting kids that fit your system your ginna struggle.

    Army beat Junior high teams the entire season, go look at that schedule. OU was good, Houston obviously wasn't

    Here is pretty good assessment

    I love how Notre Dame ranked #14 with all their DII athletes. 707.

    Not far from the truth. The other team that knocked off West Point was Duke. The Black Knights won the CINC Trophy as well. It was otherwise a great season.
