  1. All the remaining BIG12 and PAC teams are exploring there options, asking the B1G and the SEC if they are interested, and if the answer is no then each will try to figure out what is best for them. Very difficult to figure out how it shakes out. Obviously the BIG12 dissolving would be perfect for TX and OU.
  2. Saw some spectacultion that the BIG12 could go after Utah,Colorado,Arizona and Arizona state. Seems like that could make some geographical sense. Obviously that would be the end of the PAC, and the other PAC teams would be left scrambling trying to find a chair before the music stopped.
  3. I would think that TX and OU would have used all available legal avenues to get out of the grant of rights. Given that they didn't even try leads me to believe that they didn't see any hope and be extrapolation the ACC teams are stuck.
  4. Can BYU back out of the BIG12 agreement? How much of a penalty if any would they face? It seems like them being in the PAC makes more sense. And with USC and UCLA leaving you would think the PAC would now be willing to take them.
  5. Personally I really like the idea of a 16 team conference with a nine game schedule, having 3 permanent match ups and play all the other teams every other year. Adding 2 teams with a similar schedule would require a 10 game conference schedule, which most coaches wouldn't like, not that they have all that much say. The bigger problem is the ACC has a grant of rights agreement that runs through 2036, so it's hard to imagine any ACC teams making a move. So what high values teams does that leave? Maybe Oregon? Since they play in a 54,000 seat stadiuim, unless paired with Notre dame I don't think it works. My guess is the B1G and the SEC will stand pat at 16 teams for the foreseeable future., unless Notre Dame wants in.
  6. In 2022 Sark pushed out a bunch of players to make room for a class of I think 33? If you try to predict the class size based on seniors and third year players expected to enter the NFL draft you likely will be predicting too low. Late in the cycle they will find room for anyone that they really need/want. If someone other then Sark throws out a number it's just a wild ass guess.
  7. It's definitely going to be a balancing act that they need to be very careful with. Whenever they add an "extra" player they need to consider who will likely need to leave team and what impact that will have short and longer term on the team. If you can get a guy you think can make a difference, while having someone on the roster who isn't helping much, and doesn't seem to be progressing its an easy call.
  8. It's an interesting question. Now with the only limit being a total of 85 scholarships, Sark could take a bigger class then most expect if he thinks it will improve the team.
  9. Apparently you like to argue. I'll try one last time. Obviously each recruit is different. Different physical and mental makeup, and some end up having more success then there star ratings would imply. My comment relates to probabilities. A higher percentage of 5* O lineman will make it the NFL then 4*, and a higher percentage of 4* will get drafted then 3*. And it's not even close. The star ratings are based on various things which don't always match the evaluation process used by coaches, and some coaches are better at finding and developing under rated players. To point out individual cases isn't the point, the point is for each rating you could use probabilities of figure what percentage of them will be drafted. Clearly some players will over achieve and others will under achieve. There is definitely a correlation between the number of stars and the odds of being drafted. And statistically speaking correlation implies it's predictive.
  10. I love coach Flood, and was definitely not trying to question his evaluations or recruiting, I was only pointing out that someone could wrongly interpret your post as implying stars are not predictive of Oline recruits success.
  11. This seems misleading, it makes it seem like stars don't matter. When you consider there are about 30 5*, 330 4* and 1300 3* each year you realize that there's a strong correlation between stars and success.
  12. Its very encouraging to hear stuff like this from lots of recruits including legacies from other schools. It's very encouraging to hear guys like Gary Patterson talking up Sark. It's very encouraging that Sark is able to attract top coaches, both established and up and coming. Time will tell but it feels like this team is on a rapid upward trajectory.
  13. Conner Williams and Zack Shackelford were 3 star O lineman that proved very capable starters. If Kyle Flood wants them them there is no reason to assume they have no chance of being eventual starters.
  14. Are we done for today? I notice we are already up to #5 on the 247 team recruiting ranking.
  15. Yeah, that seemed odd to me also. I suspect that once they pick where they want to go they want to keep their options somewhat open until they work out an acceptable NIL deal.
