    New AllBuffs tradition I'm starting. This is not a Junta idea.

    pick a final class rank and IF the staff brings in a class higher than or equal that you have to donate to the AD. Let's show the AD we support coffee closers.

    My picks:
    Overall 50

    It's your money so you decide. For me, I'll just go to the default overall rankings.

    Sure. Why not? It's not like any of us are rational anyway. CU needs cash and we can all spare a few. But only if they did something to deserve it.

    Overall, I guess we average around 60-65 on the sites. Such a small class. They count 20' so signing 16 automatically drops the rank by 20%. Then compound the issue with low-rated grayshirts who wouldn't normally count in yor ranking if you were over 20 (highest rated 20 get counted).

    By average rating, closer to 50.

    And a silent commit could push us to 50. There's always a number to be played for sure. Very large classes are skewed since their sleepers don't count. CU needs to stop thinking like a G5 program and act like a P5 one.

    As fans we do a lot of bitching, not enough action. I don't want to work for the AD, but I can show my support when it does something well.

    Seems as though kids are signing faster this year. West coast kids in before sun up. Colorado has a lot of HS closed today... not sure about their festivities?

    Right now Rivals showing us at 2.76 avg stars and 63rd ranked class. WVU is ranked 39th with 2.74 avg but they took 10 more people so score more points

    Exactly why it is more handy to go by Avg star, when a class is so small like ours.

    Pulled the rivals list into excel, and when sorted by average stars, CU's class was 52, not 62.

    Looks like we are finishing 64 and 12 of 12 (11 of 12 by star ranking). Definitely closed well, but started too weak. It will be interesting to see how things start to unfold next year with the staff changes.
