There's no one in this class yet that makes me think that the Y is going to
have an instant turnaround next year. There is still a ton of time until signing
day, though. Its way to early to tell how this class is going to turn out.
"Come on Ute fans. Let's show some class. No wonder we are hated on
these threads."I'll say it again. ChrisB is no real Ute
fan. He's a plant to wind up coog fans. Mission accomplished, again. Why do you guys keep taking the bait?
who sir, please tell us , do college players now play with stars on their
@ Christine B.....Please correct me if I'm wrong but weren't you the
one professing a Utah Rose Bowl certainty last year before the annual Utah
November crash and burn?
Well done, DNews. An analysis of a recruiting class without mention on
"star" ratings or the other offers recruits may have.Don't blame Coach Sitake for this class! In the past the coaches could
say or insinuate that by the time a recruit red-shirted and went on a mission
BYU would be in a P-5 conference. With the Big XII decision not to expand in
the near future what recruit would fall for this "pitch". Well, in 19 more days the smoke will have cleared and then all teams will have
a clearer idea of the players they can build their team around.
Hmm?The top two teams of the PAC 12 were crushed in their bowl
games, and displayed a huge talent gap with the other P5 conferences. The Utes
struggled with Indiana who lost more than half their games.The Utes
are average in the PAC 12 who is the lowest performing of the P5.BYU must show improvement, because there's only a one point difference
with an average Utah team.
The 2 star bonanza continues...
@JustGordon: If the recruits generally serve 2 year missions before coming to
school and they have holes to fill, perhaps it is Bronco, not Sitake, who is the
poor recruiter. You ought to cut Sitake a few years of slack before dissing his
recruiting skills. You might even be right -- don't know -- but you are
certainly premature.Furthermore, while the correlation between
ratings coming out of high school and how they end up doing in college is a
positive one, it is not a particularly high correlation. There are plenty of
duds, and plenty of excellence from players not rated high or at all out of high
Come on Ute fans. Let's show some class. No wonder we are hated on these
threads.Yes, BYU has lost some very good seniors but there are some
good recruits that are just coming off their missions that were not mentioned in
the article. BYU will be just fine this fall.We also lost some good
talent to graduation and have some big shoes to fill. Every team does. The
Utes will be just fine this fall as well.
Glad to see our obsessed ute fans once again on a BYU article. I for one would
like to know how they figure the utes have won the recruiting battle? The
recruiting season is not even over yet. I am guessing next that ute
fans will claim the national championship trophy since the games have not even
been played yet. Typical ute fans.Also funny that a school that got
out recruited by miles only lost by one point on Utah's home field. I
guess BYU does more with less and Whit does less with more.
And for the 7th year in a row Pac 12 Chris B is simply compelled to remind us
that BYU is a non relevant mid-major that he cares nothing about. Hey, at least
the man's consistent.
I don't understand why young men who are going on missions before playing
football in Provo are even discussed in this article. What impact could a
player who is not going to play have?When all is said and done UTAH
only has 11 recruits and is still ranked higher than our little blue brothers
who have 6 more recruits. Things are not looking good, perhaps Sitake is not as
good a recruiter as Bronco!
Sounds like a rebuilding year to me. BYU will lose some very good seniors.
Agree with TJ.
Jello is Good,Well said.
@JUNIOR Crimson Club Member Chrissy BZzzzzzzzz. What? Oh...same
old dribble. Zzzzzzz.
And for the 7th year in a row, byu's recruiting class will be lower average
stars than Utahs. And for the 7th year in a row, byu's been
worse than Utah on the fieldCoincidence?Nope!With Utah's Pac 12 membership and byu's mid major status continuing
forever, I'm not sure byu will ever have the highest average star
recruiting class in the state. And that tells us a LOT about the future
success, or lack thereof, in Provo.
I would like to see an article on the other joining the program next Fall. RMS
