Tango and Cash
They just don't know who Bama wants yet. Once that's known those prospects will shoot up the charts.
Stop. Just stop.
The ratings services will jigger the rankings at the end to make sure precious Alabama comes out on top, again.
More looney tunes talk...
But I refuse to to let my fanhood blind my common sense.
If only more people could think this way...
But, to act as if it never happens is naive.
Never said it didn't happen(it happens here too), only that the excuse that this is the only reason schools like Bama recruit is getting old.
There's a difference between believing college players get extra benefits(even at OSU) and whining and using it as an excuse every time a southern schools signs a top recruit.
We need to look at ESecPN's history with their messages to or about players.
No, we don't. STOP looking for conspiracies that aren't there.
Several years ago, a top 5 RB from Florida wanted to commit to tOSU, ESecPN said something like "Why Ohio State? It's far away and cold in winter."
There is a lot of Booster cash, cars, and condos being handed out to the Bama team.
Or they want to go to a program that has great facilities, tradition, coaching, and is a pipeline to the NFL.This is getting REALLY old.
I wonder if it influenced his decision
Seriously? I think were digging a little too deep here. He went where he felt the most comfortable We have TWO great DTs and the highest rated class, by players average. This is a great class.
What is so hard to understand? It's not like we're talking about Ball State. FSU always has, and always will be, a major player in recruiting.
Wow.I had no idea that 247 has such an anti-OSU bias.
I hope you were joking. There is ZERO, ZILCH, NADA, anti-OSU bias among any of the Big 4.
Cherry picked. Period.
You have no clue what cherry picking really is. Cherry picking would be using, for example, Rivals because they have OSU with 7 five star recruits and then using Scout in the same sentence because they only have Bama with 3 five stars when Rivals has them with 8 five stars. THAT is cherry picking.
And why on earth would he WANT to make UM look bad in this scenario? This is a B1G vs SEC comparison. Logic dictates he would want the B1G to look as good as possible. Stop crying about a non-issue.
Minority? Proven fact? How many upvotes do I have on this subject? And you? How many people have commented along the same lines as me? And You?
Go crawl back in your hole of conspiracy filled delusion. I'll be over here in my "angry" reality.
PS, you also don't know what a troll is.
So bc Winston got away with rape that's proof Wilson likes FSU because they are cheating?
It's simple, don't post stupid stuff and people won't point out said stupidity. There are some of you who act like EVERY time a recruit goes to a southern school over OSU that cheating was involved. Just because it might happen some times doesn't mean it happens every time. You might not like what I say, but there are plenty who agree with me.
News flash : when you have text message evidence giving the players money and multiple serious crimes swept under the rug (rape, DUI, assault, etc) it's not an excuse.
It most definitely IS and excuse if you have ZERO proof that something occurred with regard to this specific recruit(s).
Newsflash-Just because you dont want to admit it doesn't happen doesn't mean it hasn't. Thats just how the world works. I mean there are alot of former SEC athletes who have said they get special treatment and benefits in college, but we're just going to ignore those just because you say so? LOL ! Good one.
READ what I said. I don't care if it happens here, there, or anywhere. The point I made was that too many times we look for excuses why some recruit didn't want to come to OSU...with the most common reason being that said school must have paid said recruit. It's an old, lazy excuse.
Also, if you want to play THAT game, then do you also admit that these things happen in the B1G as well...even OSU?
If people have the right to post nonsense...flawed logic, extreme homerism, conspiracy drivel, etc, then I have the right to counter those views.
Do you post anything besides bitching at other OSU fans? Honestly.
Is what I said untrue???
Sorry I hurt your feelings.
The recruiting services never miss a chance to drop OSU committed recruits.
I dont know how they keep pulling these recruits.
Well, because it's a top tier program.
Not bad, but certainly not better than what OSU has done the past 3 years.
Recruiting is WAY more than just wins and losses. Relationships, location, playing time, scheme, etc all play a much larger role than wins and losses.
Newsflash - Just because a recruit chooses to go somewhere other than OSU doesn't mean something shady is going down. This excuse is getting tiring.
Ohio State (7) has the most five-star recruits
We have five 5 star recruits according to the composite rankings. No other site has us with more than 6. Where are you getting your numbers?
