[quote]Not XT but Bryce Thompson out of Dutch Fork he has academic work to do but if not for those issues he'd be a high 4* [/quote] Ahhhhhh, ok, thanks Mike. Yeah, I've known about him for awhile just wasn't sure what we were going to do with him. He's a helluva player who has had some of...

re: Who's the next Nick Saban? - scrooster
[quote]I don't think it's fair to assume that the next Nick Saban will come from the Nick Saban tree. If we had to place Nick Saban in someone else's tree who would be say, primarily, he belongs to? Don James? Solid but not the Nick Saban of his era. People will say Belichick but Saban was w...

re: Who's the next Nick Saban? - scrooster
So today that was a major topic of discussion on Finebaum. Fairly fruitless IMHO. They went down the list of Saban disciples with a couple of beat writers. One was an asshat who has consistently been proven wrong. FSU beat writer I think? There's now what, five from his tree coaching in the S...

re: State of Gamecock Recruiting for 2018 - scrooster
So ... giving this some more thought. Is there some sort of possibility that we may sign some incredibly great, Alabama level, DLine talent with this class? XT, KJ, Sandidge, Dorian Gerald ... among others? Like a snowball effect sort of thing? They are all talking, all making plans to make-up...

[quote]No, not the only one he was referring to. Lots of hints that Thompson will be a Gamecock. Wearing Carolina gloves and cleats at the Shrine bowl practice. [/quote] What! What the heck did I miss while I was gone? You're talking about XT right? Okay, so let me try to get this righ...

re: So we've got some assistant coaches being courted ... - scrooster
Not a clue. So out of touch I've been going by messages and texts that were left to me. Totally possible that UT has finished with their D staff. ETA: So, evidently quite a few have already been hired including ... Chris Rumpf. [link=(http://www.knoxnews.com/story/sports/college/university...

re: State of Gamecock Recruiting for 2018 - scrooster
Nice CG! Thanks for the clarification. It makes sense now and him being friends with Bobby Bentley might be the kicker because Bentley can sell ... and they wouldn't be considering hiring Dad if he were not worthy. It reads as if we're forcing klemzin's hand. ...

So we've got some assistant coaches being courted ... - scrooster
Lance Romance is being woo'd by Tennessee. So is BMac. Both of them in a big way. Both of them are going to get big raises from us. So is the entire staff. Mike Peterson has been contacted, or has been reached-out-to, by UF. Not sure in what capacity but I am assuming as a LB coach to his a...

[quote]Sounds like you are talking about KJ Henry a 5 star DE from NC, but from all reports I've seen we're a longshot at best with him. Pretty much has been considered a Clemson lock the whole time. Love to have him of course, but I wouldn't believe it until he actually signed. [/quote] Yes, th...

[quote]Seems like unnecessary effort when you could’ve just said “how long since each Big 6 team won the SEC”[/quote] I upvoted for his analytical effort. This whole "Big 6" thing is relative though. Tennessee ... meh. No one is worried about the vols anymore, seriously. No knock on the vol...

re: State of Gamecock Recruiting for 2018 - scrooster
I've been out of the loop all last week in an area in Texas where I had no phone or text except for short periods at night when they had the wifi generator running. And it took me 40 hrs and five flights to get home because of weather. And I think I have some sort of Pakistani flu because some Pak...

A&M has the finest football facilities in the conference, that is undisputable at the moment. I've been on the grand tour and it's not even close. This list is so fluid though. You've got SC about eight months away from finishing their new football ops center alongside their new indoor practice...
