  • ya know.. it feels really good when OSU lands a 5-star or 4-star... but then reality sets in...

    Is there a coach on the planet that wouldn't trade their 5-star whatever/whenever for little-ol 3-star AJ Hawk...???

    sure let's you know that there's not a lot of difference and/or whoever is assigning the stars ain't all that cosmic

    60% of the time, it works every time.
    I know it's a little off-topic, but since we are discussing former posters, and Mililani hinted at his former post style, whatever became of ol' computerbuck?. I am sorry if I missed the story about this, or if it was a hoax or whatever, but that guy was on a rampage two years ago and vanished.

    I have seen a few of his posts on Insiders recently...still angry over us not offering Cadogan since he has played pretty well in the recent all-star games. plus Duane mentioned that Cadogan looked good which is CB's vindication. he is pretty smart poster, but he cracks me up sometimes...

    recruiting rankings are nice but its hard to project how a player will develop in college, look at Texas, always up there in recruiting but the class rankings dont match what has happend on the field!

    I dont think they have won any sort of championship since 1996? I could be wrong, but they have been in the top five in recruiting since then a few times at least.

    JT is getting the kids that want to come to OSU and fit his system....cant argue with the results

    Go Bucks!

    I read all the time that Texas recruits well but never wins anything. However, I get the feeling that Texas is in the hunt every year. If Texas wins it all this season, all will be well for Mack Brown and the concept that Texas can't win the big games will be a myth.

    Is that because the athletes do not have talent or because the coaching staff fails at bringing the team together? Texas puts a number of quality players into the draft. They just can not win the big games.

    Texas puts a number of quality players into the draft.
    Texas has only had 10 players drafted in the last 3 years. Surprisingly, Oklahoma has only had 9. Are they developing all that 'talent'? This info needs to get to recruits!

    Compare these numbers (source - CFBNEWS.com)

    Players selected in last 3 NFL drafts:

    28 - Miami
    27 - tOSU
    22 - Tennessee
    21 - Florida
    19 - Georgia
    18 - N.D.
    16 - LSU
    15 - Va. Tech
    14 - tsun
    13 - Florida St.
    13 - Iowa
    13 - Nebraska
    13 - Stanford
    13 - Oregon
    13 - Colorado
    13 - Alabama
    12 - Pitt
    12 - UCLA
    12 - Kansas St.
    12 - Penn St.
    12 - Purdue
    11 - Wisconsin
    11 - USC
    11 - South Carolina
    10 - Texas
    10 - North Carolina
    09 - Oklahoma

    That is a ringing endorsement for the Big Ten, or at least the coaches of the Big Ten. The coaches of the Big Ten are obviously developing their players very well. 6 of the Big Ten's 11 schools made it into the Top 19 to place players in the draft over the last 3 years? Good job Big Ten. Really puts into perspective our magical run in 2002 doesn't it. We had to make our way through some real talent to get to the national title game. Then of coarse notice the team at the top of the list is the same team we beat to get the National Championship.

    When I said "quality players" I was referring to high round draft picks (not that lower round draft picks do not succeed). If you look at first round draft picks over the same timeframe, it tells a different story.

    15 - Miami (Fla.)
    6 - Texas
    5 - Ohio State
    4 - Georgia
    4 - Michigan
    4 - Wisconsin
    3 - Arizona State
    3 - Florida
    3 - Florida State
    3 - Tennessee
    3 - Virginia Tech
    2 - Arkansas
    2 - Boston College
    2 - Mississippi
    2 - North Carolina
    2 - North Carolina State
    2 - Oklahoma
    2 - Syracuse
    2 - Tulane
    2 - UCLA
    2 - Washington
    1 - Ala.-Birmingham
    1 - Auburn
    1 - California
    1 - Clemson
    1 - Colorado
    1 - Fresno State
    1 - Hawaii
    1 - Iowa
    1 - Louisiana State
    1 - Miami (Ohio)
    1 - Michigan State
    1 - Minnesota
    1 - Missouri
    1 - Northwestern
    1 - Oklahoma State
    1 - Oregon
    1 - Oregon State
    1 - Pittsburgh
    1 - South Carolina
    1 - Southern California
    1 - Texas Christian
    1 - Western Michigan

    I could be wrong but a case could be made; ND makes the least of their talent.
    Before SC turned it around, I would have put them at the top of the list.
