Trooper Taylor is the shaddiest reature in cfb
He's got some major competition for this designation. He's up there for sure but I'm not ready to give him the title just yet. Some of his competitors:
Urban Meyer-uses God and dreams to con kids along with being more than willing to pony up
Mike Locksley(Maryland assistant)- everyone knows he's dirty but yet no one does anything about it. He's the Maryland/DC version of Trooper.
Ed Orgeron-great at what he does but he'd eat his young to get a recruit.
Eddie Gran-kills with kindness but at the same time uses extremely questionable tactics to discount other schools
Dameyune Craig-uses the most controversial aspect of recruiting on a regular basis, race. Also not hesitant to guarantee "extras"
Nick Saban- this guy has the whole nation fricked up about how he works. Have been through his tactics at LSU and his current tactics at Bama and he's as good, intelligent and imaginitive a scheister as there is in recruiting. His success helps a ton but when that extra edge is needed, he has the trump card in his pocket. Searches and finds the weak link in any recruitment and pounces on it. Doesn't always work(neither does anyone else's tactics) but it's very effective.
I'm sure we have our own version somewhere on the staff. Maybe not as bad as these guys but recruiting these days requires some con men on the staff
