I realize they have to earn their way on the field. but part of that is coaching.

    There were many games last season that were basically over by halftime, or early in Q3.
    i still can’t understand why starters were not pulled earlier, both to develop the “next men up,” and, also, to reduce the obvious injury risk to the starters.

    Not sure if this topic was supposed to be about our class in particular, but I'll go there since most others have. Obviously an awesome class; insane DL haul (Alfano, Eboigbe, Young, Sopsher... the list keeps going; so many that have legitimate star potential and there's not a weak link in the group) and OL and DB are very impressive as well. Only hangups are WR, where we really should've done more (likely going to be a lot of pressure to bring in a mega haul of talented WRs next cycle) and ILB, where some whiffs could leave a mark (don't get me wrong, Harris and Lee are very nice prospects, but Lee is a step slower than I'd like and Harris has an even-greater-than-usual learning curve ahead of him; Harris does have serious potential though - we'll just have to hope ILB is something that comes naturally to him).

    I think that the general consensus is that this is a historically significant class. There is not a doubt in my mind that any of the other 129 DI schools would trade classes with us if they could. I just hope that we have the guys on staff to develop these players so that they can reach some very high goals they will no doubt place upon themselves. I think that everyone is tired of this constant turnover of staff, and it most likely cost us two high profile players yesterday. Hopefully these guys can recruit AND coach.

    We can’t get them all. I know that is a shock for some based on their comments. Bama just signed a class which consists of more top 300 Recruits than ever. A great class! Roll Tide!

    If anyone is wondering about this class or disappointed with losing a couple yesterday, just go read Jess N's wrap up.

    This class will be the base for another NC.

    • SEC West continues to be loaded with talent with Bama, TAMU and LSU boasting top 5 teams

    • The SEC ends up with 5 teams in the top 10 ... the next conference is the Big 12 with two.

    • This is the first time since 2010 the Ohio State doesn't have a top ten recruiting class.

    • USC has 0 5-stars in this class.

    • UM is the only B1G team in the top ten

    • Oregon has the first top ten class in over 10+ years The next highest ranking was 12(?) in 2010

    • This is the first top ten class for UF since 2014

    Anyone see anything else that stands out?
    To get back to the OP's message, in the state of California only 6 of the top 30 players inked with an in-state school. That is a wow.

    Yes, another great wrap up by Jess. I found myself realizing just how much talent is on that team and will be augmented by this excellent class. Sure, we missed on a couple that we all would have liked to have had but it was an amazing class nonetheless.

    Now, I wonder what it would be like if we had a coaching staff that could and would stick around for 3, maybe 4 years?? Develop relationships with high schools? Kids that are now Fr. and Sophs. in high school? That would be so foreign to us that we wouldn`t know how to act!

    My take - CNS was playing the defensive starters deeper into blowouts because of inexperience on the back end and trying to make them a more cohesive unit. We can't always win on talent alone so scheme, knowledge and execution are key going into championship season.

    It's in the sticky on the football board and can be accessed from the "JessN" drop down.

    That IS pretty crazy ... I went back and checked other hotbed recruiting states and none of the others come close. Most of the other states are double the number. I wonder if that is an indictment on the PAC-12?

    According to 247Sports, USC had 26 commits this year ... 18 of them are 3 stars (The remaining 8 are 4 stars). The previous year they had 18 commits and only ONE was a 3 star ...

    Most of their 5 star guys bailed, and the one that signed , transferred! Listening to Jim Mora, the ex Falcons coach and west coast guy, said there is a good reason why West coast kids are leaving the PAC 12 in general and SC in particular. The SEC schools are putting 80-90,000 in the stands for Spring Practice Games , and the Trojans barely put 40,000 in The stands for regular season games . And now Los Angeles has 2 NFL teams that are competing for NFL championships. The interest just isn’t there in the fanbase. Kids want to go to a place that playing football is special!
