I don't really consider most of these recruiting battles. I think a recruiting battle only occurs when both teams actively recruit a player and the player highly considers both teams leading up to their decision. For instance, the Glenville Trio, Hilliard, Fitzpatrick and Foster (we dropped him after a bad visit) weren't battles between us and Bama IMO.

Ever think he had his hat off because they knew they were going to show him on TV so someone told him to take it off for that moment?

I was there and that was my initial thought process. I didn't once think that he had it off because he WANTED to be shown.

To be fair, I read an insider article where an NFL scout said that he would have Cardale as the best NFL prospect QB on our team right now.

I do agree sample size is small but if, like the OP says, Cardale has similar games against Alabama and then in the NC it wouldn't be out of the question for him to submit his name. You never know.

Funny thing is is that Cager might get left out of all three classes (ND, Bama, OSU). We told him we only have so many spots left, Alabama is running out and so is Notre Dame. I'm all for taking visits and making sure you're making the right decision but he's already been to all three schools. I don't know.

Though if we flip Van Jefferson I'd say that's more than good enough.

I'm guessing it's not the exact reason but it's probably part of it.

When a kid sees us filling up on DBs, sees the talent level of the DBs that will be above him when he gets here, I don't blame the school and kid for mutually parting ways.

The thing is, you have no way of knowing that. Pretty much everyone said after we lost to VaTech that there was no way we were even in the playoff hunt, let alone would make it.

You cannot make that claim right now. Teams always lose. You don't know how the Big Ten will do next year. You don't know what other powers will lose. You don't know anything about next year yet, so why make the claim that we MUST do this, that and the other?

Doubtful. Before this move Kirk was pretty much down to USC and A&M with some insiders feeling that Kirk was leaning USC recently.

I don't think we've been in the picture for 6 months.

Comment 05 Dec 2014

No way he goes to Nebraska.

He will either go to OSU or go to OU, IMO.

Some smoke though that he's being told that he will never play at OSU. Hopefully he sees through the BS. Kid is a stud.

I'm pretty sure he has said that he pushed his decision timeline back. I believe he was considering enrolling early but is not going that route anymore and is going to take more time to decide.

Maybe it relates to your crystal ball to Memphis thing. Grades? Regardless, seems like there is more to the story then just "he doesn't want to come here".
