Its some of both. If you look at 247, our composite is .8195, and that's before they remove Josh Quiett from the mix. We'll be over .8200 at that point. Considering that last year was .7855 and the highest its EVER been since they started their composite ratings in 2000 or so was .8003, this is a HUGE improvement in quality from past classes. However, if you look at Rivals, you'll see that our average recruit is 2.27, which is lower than the other schools around us in ranking, so the number of recruits is inflating our ranking somewhat.

Regardless, there's no way you can say this isn't a vast improvement from anything you've seen in the past 15+ years.

A more intelligent response would have been Laughing But Serious (LBS). WF is more than holding his own against the upper tier of the AAC which was a reasonable expectation and hope for WF after this only his second season; WF is doing it! :thumbup:

And as you recruit better players, this is how you end up with space for them. WR Chris Johnson is transferring. Its pretty obvious with the emergence of Mouney and the new recruits coming in, that Johnson was slipping down the chart.

In front of a packed stadium against quality opponents. Also these small towns might be more affordable to visit and appeal to the mom's more than NO.

What quality opponents? They're in a division with Vanderbilt, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Big names doesn't equal quality opponents.

Well, next year Mizzou hosts Georgia and visits Alabama. Is that enough quality for you?
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

As opposed to Tulsa, SMU, Houston, Memphis etc. And they don't strictly play divisional opponents. This year, for example, they played Auburn, Georgia, Florida and SC. I cannot blame the young man for wanting to play in the SEC. I just hope for his sake he gets a chance to do so.

How will the early signing day be handled? Will Fritz hold a press conference tomorrow to talk about the signees. Is there a signing party (too close to the holidays) or wait until February to celebrate the class of 2018.

Apparently not. This is all so new no one was sure how it would turn out. Now that it appears Wednesday will be the big day that may change in the future.

Don't you realize that some on this board will b!t@# and moan and blame the staff for not being able to hold on to a 2 star player (this is no dig at said player) but perhaps the kid *gasp* changed his mind or that our staff has someone else in the works and encouraged said player to look elsewhere.

Remember on this board if you don't know 100% of the facts you blame the coaching staff and the university....

Can’t always go by the stars.
Matt Forte was a 2 star. I’m sure if he was committed WF didn’t want to lose him.

I haven't seen anyone yet bitching and moaning about not holding on to Bakare. Personally, I'm disappointed that we lost him because I felt he was an under the radar type that would have done well here. But I'm not bitching and moaning about it. I've always felt there's enough kids that want to be here, no reason to wish for one that obviously doesnt. Thats why what happens to Lindsey Scott doesn't bother me. He's made it pretty obvious that we were only a fall back. I'm happy with the QBs we have.
