    Suck it all you haters of the ranking system! This one class has more 3 star athletes than we have signed in the last 10 years!

    Tech has 17 with 3 stars and 9-10 are JC transfers

    Didn't think some should have been 3s---go to Rivals football recruiting and hit commits!!!!

    For whatever reason, Rivals gives 3 stars to many if not the majority of JUCO players who sign with D1 schools. I don't believe Scout follows that approach.

    Steve Robertson of Scout explained that Rivals has like 500 or 600 more 3 star players. Being a 3* on Rivals is not as prestigious so to speak as being 3* Scout. Good players get left out still though

    If a Juco was 2-stars out of HS, is he worth signing if still 2-stars after a couple years of Juco ball?

    It is pretty funny how a lot of people not too long ago, who were dismissing the star theory and how they are allocated to each athlete are now singing the praises of the rankings that our class is getting. One minute its " It doesn't matter how many stars they have" to "We have X number of 3 star athletes compared to X school" LOL. It's good stuff. The problem is, it depends on which service you look at. Rivals has us with 8 three star athletes and Scout has us with 2. Last year's class had one so it would somewhat compare to this year's class if judging by scout even though i think we all agree that we are getting some extremely gifted athletes more ready to play early now than last year. It's all a matter of perspective I guess

    Ha...Z...I guess we all have some "attorney" in us. We tend to use or disregard whatever data supports or hurts our case!

    Correct, I know I definitely have the attorney in me although I couldn't follow in the father's footsteps on that one. However, I do tend to look at the stars of players and how they are ranked. I also try to keep an open mind about them in knowing there are many circumstances that surround the rankings of players or lack thereof. I do remember seeing about a month or so ago though many sharing that the star rankings of players are overblown especially for players who fall through the cracks and that they mean nothing. Now, many of those people are all into the class rankings we have now that we've improved 20 or so spots. It's good stuff and its better than complaining about everything that is our program. Notice we've had only one band and cheerleader thread about how they need to improve? Usually, that's frontline material.

    Exactly. A few weeks ago:

    "Rivals is a BS site that doesn't pay any attention to UL. Don't listen to a word they say"!

    Today:

    "Look at all our three star recruits on rivals.com!!!"

    Damn skippy... Any person that I know that does not speak well of me is an idiot. They only become incredibly insightful, gifted, and intellectually superior once they speak well of me. I am Hypocrite. My portrait can be found anywhere and at any time by looking in a mirror.

    There is an article on p. 4B of today's DA about the fact that these high profile recruiting lists don't necessarily translate to wins on the field. It cited the 2006 class, which would've been generally seniors this year. It noted that 6 programs of the top 10 recruiting classes from that year had less-than -stellar seasons this past year. These included the biggies - USC, Georgia, Florida,Texas, Penn State, and Notre Dame. The article also noted that some of this year's final top teams, like TCU, Oregon, & Stanford, weren't even in the top 50 (well, Oregon was 49)! So, it is a relative thing about the class rankings and all. I think if we have a good coaching staff and they get who they feel will help our team win, then THAT is a good recruiting class for us, regardless of where it ranks on the national scene. Having said that, it still feels good to have a sense that our quality of recruits that are considering us and committing to us is going upward!

    UL Football Re: Recruiting Team Rankings - Historical Results

    Just saw this 2011 team recruting rankings:

    ToLame - 99
    Louisiana - 89
    LaTech - 83

    What a great job by our new coaches in a very short period of time... A tremendous foundation both in talent and for next year recruiting!
