7. [massive spree of excuses for your school's mediocre academic rankings and sad NFL Draft production, all in the same list somehow]

26. We don't recruit players unless they have [insert implausibly high SAT number here], while Rival U will let anyone with a pulse in.

27. I'd rather have a 3 star recruit who's ready to grind than a 5 star prima donna anyways.

That was great.

Here are a few of mine:

26. We beat Mississippi State and Ole Miss straight up for a recruit.

27. I found an outlier that proves the whole system is flawed, and I've ignored the other 99% of that disproves my point.

28. My school has tremendous success despite recruiting rankings, so the system as a whole must be bull****.

29. Our 0.8499 ranked recruit will take our program to new heights. Your 0.8499 recruit probably won't play much, likely because your coaches aren't really that good.

30. This is the school our fourth chance recruit has finally learned his lesson. He will be an angel at our U.

31. We got a boss signee based only on his size and blurb about his "motor skills" I read in an article from his hometown paper.

32. I saw him play in high school. He's going to run through the belt.

33. This is best class in program history.

34. His transfer from Big U to our school had nothing to do with his playing ability or his attitude, but everything to do with a bad coaching situation. They weren't using him properly.

App and GS probably out of the mix with Birdsong with Iowa State jumping late as well. Need to hit that next level to stop losing recruits to lower level P5's way out of region.
Our guys gave up on Birdsong couple of weeks ago.

Your 27 sums it up for every anti rankings argument ever.

35. Our coaches develop better than anyone else so we dont need high ranked recruits. Give is that 5'9" LB with nothing but FCS offers all day baby dont matter!

36. It is just a coincidence our recruits are not ranked since our coaches get exactly who they want....just ignore all those offers to those high three and four star guys they were not serious offers we really wanted two star guy from day one!!

37. Academics blah blah blah...

38. All P5 offers are equal an offer from Wake is P5 so same as AL...

Based on 247 ratings, App State's talent is in the lower half of G5 teams. Can anyone but a moron really watch them and say that? Can anyone say GS was among the least talented G5 teams in 2014 and 2015 (which recruiting stars would indicate)? But I guess both teams just had tons and tons of "outliers" on their teams.

We're kidding ourselves if we think Scout and 247 care enough about the G5 to put the money and resources forward to do rigorous analysis. And it would be very naive to suggest there isn't both conscious and unconscious bias in ratings based on who a player has commtted to.

GSU now leads at 247: https://247sports.com/Season/2018-Footba...erence=SBC

They will be a force in the SBC soon, but some will deny these rankings. We'll see who's right.

In fairness, they're #1 right now by pure brute force (ie number in their list).

Troy's average is more impressive to me.

No doubt their recruiting has improved though.

Cajuns class is full. 6 commits are not public at this time from what I’m being told and if they hold firm and are who I think they might be, this may be the best class we’ve signed since Hudspeths first class.

Not talking bad about it at all, it just stands to reason that more guys on your list = higher score. Ya'll do have a good average too, it's just that Troy's is better.

These could easily change when more ratings are introduced. Some guys with only one rating service could see his score dramatically improve or drop when the rest of the rating services are added.

With all the updates so far ya'll have been holding onto that 81+.

But yea, you're right.
