PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Chris Hardeman, CB out of Texas who was offered by Ohio State recently.
Committed to LSU.
thats nice. think urban will put together an awesome 2014 class. he now has an entire year to recruit these young guys, unlike the 2013 class. i see urban getting the numnber one or number two 2014 class.
2015 will be Urbans year to take away number 1 class. We currently have 26 or 27 sophomores on roster, and 2015 is our first year with no scholarship reductions. Our class that year will be as big as the B1G 10 allows it to be. Here's to hoping there's a great football class in 2015
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
I think 2013 will be a top 10 class and would be top 5 if it wasn't for numbers....I think 2014 has a chance to be the top class, even with reductions....2015 with no limitations should be a top 5 class as well....you are pretty much guaranteed a top 10 class at OSU with Meyer IF the on field results are up to Meyer standards
man, people really don't understand the schollie reductions. The '13 and '14 classes will be the same size as they would have if there were no sanctions. The '12 class was 3 schollies smaller and the '15 class with be 3 schollies bigger than they would have been with no sanctions. It's not like we lose 3 schollies each class, we just have to be at 82 athletes each fall.
Say you can carry 10 apples in your bag. Each day you eat some apples, and replace them with apples from your tree when you get home. You eat 5 apples, you replace those with 5 new apples. Then one day someone says that you can only carry 8 apples, but you ate 5 apples that day. You can only get 3 new apples or the next day. But if you eat 5 apples that next day, you can replace all 5 apples. This continues for another day (5 apples eaten, 5 replaced) until you are allowed to carry 10 apples again. Well now you can get 7 new apples, 5 to replace the ones you ate and 2 more to fill the bag.
That's how the scholarship reductions work. It is a one time shrinkage in incoming class size that isn't allowed to be fixed for a certain number of years. Same thing applies to USC. This class will be 5 players less, but next year it will be the same size. It's not like we're gonna be minus 9 players in '14, just 3. USC won't be minus 15, just 5.
Cause I couldn't go for three
Right. It's most impacted with this class.
umm... no, it was most impacted with the '12 class (why we were ringing our hands about possibly having space for Diggs or not). This class was always going to be tiny because this senior class is tiny. The '12 class was impacted most (minus 3) and we will benefit in '15 (plus 3)
what i meant by number one or number two class, was in quality. i dont pay a hill of beans to quantity cummulative points. that means nothing., in the long run, spaced out over 4 years.
"i don't pay a hill of beans to quantity cummulative points"... what in gods name does that mean...
Do you mean that the '14 class with be of higher quality players even if smaller?
what is rivals average per player for this 2013 class? 3.92? isnt that better than say meechegans 3.55 per player? i am just saying our quality of recruits will be ranked number one or two for the 2014 class.
