We got some good players and very importantly got a balanced class. Glad we got Johnson's signature today. He's someone good schools backed off of b/c of a misdiagnosis by a doctor. So we got a really good player at a very important position.

This is a nice looking class. Especially those DT's.

Yes, and for the pittance charged monthly, more should join Rivals. There are some poster's there with great inside info and
insight!
I tried to join Rivals and had technical issues. Got Yahoo! support, which couldn't resolve them. Rebooted computer, cleared cache, cleared cookies and still couldn't access Guerry's article. Had to ask Yahoo! support FOUR TIMES to cancel my subscription and issue a refund. Took 20 minutes of chat, and messed things up like all my saved passwords. Wasn't close to worth the hassle.

It's the whole SEC perception for high schoolers. He's going to receive a big wake up call when he realizes the implications of Missouri's OC leaving in the offseason.

As you (Winwave) probably know, Johnson will enroll in January; has already said he wants to get playing time in the fall.

And, I remember how under "Buffet Bob" Toledo Tulsa consistently and badly out recruited us in the River Parishes. I was amazed by how they could do that in our own backyard. Apparently those days are over and what's going on with Tulsa of late I have no idea?

I agree that's what was previously reported. But as you know as of today it is just a possibility. He wants to do it but may not be able to . That could mean not having the credits to come in early or maybe we don't have the space by however the NCAA counts numbers in the spring. Or some other reason. So it may happen and you and I want very much for it to happen but it might not end up panning out.

If you look, he didn't say we were matching the P5s YET, he said we're more than a cut above the rest of the G5s. And that's a fact. Using 247 for example, AAC has SEVEN schools in the top 75. The entire rest of the G4 has FOUR. TOTAL. That's one per conference, while we have seven. YES, that's a cut above the rest of the G5s.

We are what we are, and right now thats a G5 conference. You can't be disappointed because we're not recruiting comparable to the P5s. If we're in the top 6 or 7 of 70 G5 schools, how is that not significant? You can't really expect much more than that.

R- if you look I put a green smiley face. As is becoming the norm you are reading things into it that aren't there. I'm happy with the class. I agree we are above the other G's but this conference is also clearly below the P's. My only real concern is with Tulane reaching it's potential in my lifetime and the other long time diehards lifetimes. This class is a step in that direction.

Sorry, I'm at work and also dealing with some personal stuff and I missed the tongue in cheek part. As for reaching our potential in our lifetimes, I'm not absolutely sure that's completely within Tulane's control anymore.

We only move up if our best can beat their best. That's why the UCF/Auburn game is SO important. The AAC has to start showing the ability to play defense. These 62-55 games are not really quality football. You get up to go to the bathroom and each team has already scored again. You can't beat good teams like that; that's why Chip Kelly always came up short at Oregon.

According to Guerry, it doesn't hurt our rankings, but he was an OLB we were counting on signing.
247 did bump Ellison up to 3 stars, but we are having a great day without him anyway.
