2017 Recruiting Thread Part 1

Recommended Posts

I am going to briefly address one thing I think you (and Will) are overlooking. One potential conflict here. And then I will shut up about it.

 

First, I think everyone gets where you are coming from. This is how you put groceries on the table. You want to stay on good, friendly terms with your peers. Everyone here gets this and no one would begrudge you for it. One never knows where the next job offer may come from, right?

 

The small issue that might be created here is that what's best for your own career might not necessarily be the same as what is best for this site. And, from my perspective at least, what is best for my fellow users. So, I see a small crack here where all interests may not be perfectly aligned. I hope you can understand this.

 

But, let us see what the boss says. Aaron is a good guy. I like him. What he says goes.

This has zero to do with job offers, my current job, or any future jobs. I have no idea how we got to that from where we started. This isn't that complicated of an issue for me.,

 

Aaron made the call and its pinned in a thread on the board.

Can anyone summarize why Utah won this battle for him over us?

He's from the west coast originally and only briefly spent time in Texas so he doesn't have strong ties to the Austin area or the state despite playing at Cedar Park. Utah has been on him for awhile and Texas didn't try to turn up the heat until late.

Yeah, it's simply just an issue with those people putting a price on their info.  It's their job and their proprietary information.  Why should they charge if people can come read it here for free?  It's more of a professional courtesy than anything else.

Wells -- "Texas has been heading for a perceptually disappointing finish for a while, and its about to meet that end."

 

 

from a Reddit session with Mike Farrell, a Rivals Natl guy

Charlie won the recruiting battles in February but not much else.  You can only sweet talk recruits for so long before the truth reveals itself on the field.  

 

What was our record when trailing at halftime the last 3 years?  I believe it was 1-13 or something close to that. it takes a serious lack of halftime adjustments and coaching to have that shining stat.

 

Herman will put his Mensa smack down on the field then the recruits will come.  I have been saying it since Herman was hired, anyone who thinks Herman was going to land a top 10 class in 2017 has been indulging on too much media and hype koolaid.

 

I have read the Herman has done a wonderful job on recruiting given the time he had.  Well that is surely true but come on UT appeal has hit an all time low for us to be ranked 30ish nationally.  I trust Herman will fix it but it wont be until the season starts.
