Seeing the CU buffalo logo makes me chuckle every time I see it.

That’s a very diverse group of 10

I imagine almost every top recruit has LSU in the top 10. Why do we post these?

To get familiar with a recruit for those who care to do so

If LSU is in his Top Ten, that means LSU has about a 10% chance of signing him. If we make it to his Top Eight, we have about a 12.5% chance. If we make it to his Top Five, we have a 20% chance of signing him. Don't you care about LSU's percentage chance of signing a 4-star CB?

Personally, I love those posts. I love every post about percentages, whether it's 10%, or 5%, or even 1%. You've got to learn to love percentages because the recruiting board is all about percentages.

You know, when you get old in life things get taken from you. I mean that's . . . part of life. But, you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out life’s this game of percentages. So is recruiting. Because in either game, life or recruiting, the margin for error is so small -- I mean one-half a bag too late, or too early, and you don’t quite commit ‘em. One percentage too little, too late, you don’t quite sign ‘em.

The percentages we need are everywhere around us.

They’re in every break of recruiting, every minute, every second.

On this board, we fight for the percentages. On this board, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for the percentages. We claw with our fingernails for the percentages, because we know when we add up all those percentages that’s gonna make the frickin' difference between top three ranking in the nation or bottom five in the SEC! Between livin' and dyin'!

I’ll tell you this: In any fight, it’s the guy who’s willing to pay who’s gonna win the percentages. And I know if I’m gonna have any life anymore, it’s because I’m still willin' to fight and pay for the percentages. Because that’s what livin' is! The percentages in front of your face!!

Now I can’t make you do it. You got to look at the guy posting above you. Look into his posts! Now I think you’re gonna see a guy who will go for the percentages with you. You're gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this board because he knows, when it comes down to it, you’re gonna do the same for him!

That’s a board, gentleman!

And, either we care about percentages, now, as a board, or we will die as individuals.

That’s recruiting guys.

That's all it is.

Now, what are you gonna do?

Seems like you posted an almost identical message before which I upvoted, but I don't care for reruns so downvote this time. Your percentage argument is still grossly flawed because every team doesn't have an equal chance which is your assumption. If you believe the Crystal Balls, Florida State has a huge lead in the chances.

Does it seem as redundant as the posts like CatsGoneWild's post that complain about "Top Ten" lists? I hope so.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. But my post is not really intended to be accurate.

I would rather us be a top four for a 10-star cornerback.


But that’s just me.
