    Taking the Rams to the top is like being the tallest midget.

    Doesn't appear that Isiah Norton qualified either, he's not on their 2011 roster but other recruits are. This would make sense since academics concerns were reportedly the reason they were able to get such a highly rated player in the first place.

    Norton was the best recruit in their 2011 class. Bibbs was probably #2. They're taking risks to try to get some talent. Doesn't look like it's working out.

    Those programs have had a lot more success in recent years than CSU and are closer to the prospect's home. This was a major upset recruiting win for the Rams.

    Both kids are pretty decent prospects as players and would have been a step up in terms of talent for CSU. Had they been in good shape academically they both would have likely had a number of other offers from higher profile schools. Given that, had they had the offers from higher profile schools they likely would have taken one of those so CSU wouldn't be talking about losing them. The reason they were available to CSU was that other schools knew they weren't likely to qualify and didn't bother trying. CSU was willing to hope against hope that one of them would get in, their next hope is that the kids will appreciate the attention and return to CSU after their JC stints.

    It's kind of like the guy who puts his attention into going after the hot chick who everyone knows has an STD. He knows that normally she would be out of his league but he is hoping that either the rumors are wrong and somehow she will test clean or that she has an STD that the doctors can cure or at least treat.


    The CSU fans are already talking about having him there after a stint in the JC, be interesting to see what happens.

    Are you saying these CSU recruits have herpes, but CSU was hoping they only had crabs?

    More like hoping it was only a form of syphillis that can be treated with antibiotics.

    I feel the same. He had to commit to CSU for football, and apparently he has talent. How depressing is that?

    Better than Dorian Brown? At least, Rivals has Brown rated higher. He could still come back to haunt us. I never checked their class before, but they did get a lot of speedy guys.

    Once they've been to a JUCO, don't you think they'll know what a real school looks like and take a pass on Goat U.?
