I watched ASU take down KU and the guard play was pretty amazing. If our guards can mature into what I saw in that game, we will be amazing  .

Gotta laugh about ASU - the ultimate party school!  It would be a fun school to attend if you were a trust fund kid

Lovie's recruit from Northern California records 2nd most tackles for a frosh in the BIG.  He also picked off 3 passes.  Must admit I enjoyed seeing him play with heart and passion.  All and all, a job well done!

Rivers went up in the rankings quite a bit here in Texas
He worries me that somebody is going to flip him but he says he is 100% committed and is vocal about the ILLINI

yeah we need those guys.

Currently, we have 15 commits, 7 of which have no other offers from a P5 school except us

Let's hope this talent evaluation is right and the scouts are wrong. I think rankings are largely trash myself
yeah I think it is a mix....a crap shoot.    That WR looks put together so we will see.

Did you see MJ Rivers is recruiting Unije?  Tweeted at him to join the family.

By the way I truly believe we are about to land both Brown and Unije. Things are looking up

Again, both Lovie and Brad said they don't care about stars....Bennett Williams, a 2 star was just named a freshman all american. I trust the coaches and really don't care what these kids are ranked if they are players who can play.  That is unless high 4 stars or 5 stars...those are more can't miss but the middle guys is where programs like us have to hit and find hidden gems who  we can develop.  We shall see how it goes.  This kid looks well put together and athletic so my guess is maybe he isn't polished yet and coaches believe he has a lot of upside.

I also don't care about Mercer or MTSU.  They aren't close to us as a program and never will be.

Commit #2

Again, less than stellar offers from the likes of Mercer and MTSU (who both frankly are better than us lol) but he looks like a good pick up, 6'3 with good hands
