re: O will consistently get top 10 recruiting classes
he should be able to every year


if he isn't thats a major problem


It should not be a major issue considering Texas and our own state is always loaded with talent.

re: O will consistently get top 10 recruiting classes
Considering that he got the job partly for saying that "we're gonna sign the best recruiting classes in the country consistently" I fricking hope so.

It is hard to win the SEC without consistently top recruiting classes. When we won it in 2011, we had the #1 class in 2009 which was the backbone for that team, #9 class in 2010 (turns out this one had some unreal elite and undervalued talent by the scouting networks, Mo, Badger, Blue, Reid).

Same goes for when we won it in 2003 and 2007. The classes preceding those teams were championship worthy top 5 or top 10 with the exception of the year Les was hired cuz he had 5 weeks to recruit.

You can make the playoffs with top 15 classes in any other conference, but that shite doesn't cut it in the SEC. For as good as Mississippi State had been the past few years of Mullen, his classes still lacked top end talent. They were good but could never sniff a division title.

our ranking will be more tied to in state rankings now, since we are going to really have to take more if our own, with jimbo at a&m now... Texas recruits will be harder to come by, and we usually get a good bump bc of the guys we get from there

His ability to be a monster recruiter was the main selling point on giving him the job.

Top 10 classes are bare minimum

Top 5 should be expected.

Top 3 if we want to compete with Bama and OSU

Top 10 would not do it. O or any coach needs top 5 consistently to win NCs.

re: O will consistently get top 10 recruiting classes
well we were told recruiting would be just absolutely sick under O....so far I can't say there's much of a difference between he and Miles. Down Louisiana=down class. Next year should be better because its supposed to be a great year for the state. So what's different?

According to class rankings, we've recruited at the exact same level as Ohio State this decade, but the results have been drastically different. What's been the difference?

And, given that we have matched them in the class rankings, but haven't matched their success on the field, maybe we should be looking at different metrics to determine what makes a successful recruiting class.

Over the last 8 recruiting classes, there have been about an 8 point separation between the 3rd ranked class and the 5th ranked class. Are you saying that 8 points in the recruiting rankings is enough to make or break a class? There's been a much bigger gap between #1 and #2 than there has been between #3 and #5.

I've been studying class recruiting rankings as they relate to success on the field, and I'm starting to believe that there's not much difference between having the 3rd best class vs the 10th best, and that coaching is more important than class rankings.

Say whay? Do you have a link to where someone credible says that class recruiting rankings will go up under Orgeron? Miles' last 4 classes averaged 3.75. If you expected class rankings to go up under Orgeron, then you're a fricking moron.

Hopefully where we will see improvements under Orgeron is recruiting balanced classes, offensive and defensive line, and quarterback recruiting.

I get it. You hate Orgeron. But stop making shite up.

This.

What else is he here for? Bar just keeps getting lowered. He was supposed to be an upgrade in at least the recruiting area.

Need top three olineman/dlineman classes. Can live with top 12 skill people. I know ranking don't break it down like this but that needs to be our mindset. Championships are won in the trenches!

Nobody, except Saban would be an upgrade over Miles as far as class rankings. Not even Urb.

And I'll ask you the same thing I asked BiLJ, where did anyone credible ever say Orgeron was an upgrade over Miles as far as class rankings go?
