[quote]6 safeties on this team would not be a surprise at all IMO. I'd be surprised if they keep fewer than 6 TBH[/quote]
I wouldn't go that far, but six safeties would not surprise me at all.
We're going to run three safeties over 50% of the time this year. ...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: How will the new Power 5 rules change effect recruiting? - higgsBoson on 8/8/14 at 2:43 pm|
I think this could make the game better honestly. If players can legally get paid, it will make cheating harder. Why risk getting caught taking under the table money as a player when you're already getting paid? The risk isn't worth it anymore.
ETA: and I don't think it destroys the integrity o...

[quote]Apparently some of you A&M folks have really bought-in to the recruiting ranking fever. Lsu and Bama laughs at you man.[/quote]
It's the truth. Most first round draft picks this year were 3 stars. And teams play above their ranking every year. It's about coaching and talent scouting.

A&M hasn't recruited better than LSU in the last five years, and A&M is one place ahead of LSU this year and the recruiting season isn't close to being over.
What facts? ...
