    How big of an impact does this game have on recruiting and why?

    It's going to have some effect, considering it was a nationally televised game and was pretty much the only college game on when we were drilling CSU in the first quarter.

    But it was still a Friday night, when a lot of recruits were playing their own games, and it was still against a G5 opponent, in-state rival or no. It creates momentum, but we need to carry it into the tougher parts of our schedule.

    Probably pretty small honestly.

    We played the game right in the middle of when most high schools are also playing their games. We aren't getting much secondary run on ESPN because we aren't ranked. Bobo had the highlight catch on SC Top 10, but that was yesterday. New top 10 tonight. Also we were supposed to beat CSU as they are a MW team so the result isn't necessarily surprising to outside observers.

    Yeah. And add to that than none of our recruits have DVR's and, well, none of them saw the game.

    It won't hurt unless we are hoping to impress the Falo kid with how much we are going to use a tight end to actually catch passes.
    .
    Really - every wins helps a little but we need to roll to several quality wins and close as early as possible on bowl eligibility if we are going to finish the class the way would all like to see it finish.

    We still have some good kids out there looking at us, so a big win next week will be another step in the right direction.

    Beating one of the LA teams would do wonders for recruiting.

    Like actually beating USC for once?

    How long do you have to be in a conference before lifetime oh fers against two conference rivals becomes horribly embarrassing?

    Need to beat USC. Oregon. Meatchicken. Win the south. Win the PAC 12. That'll help recruiting.

    IMO, our already verbally committed recruits see the game as some proof of what the coaches have sold them on. For the non-committed, but top targets of CU, I think it may get them to stay interested and continue listening, but I don't think it really moved the needle much. A competitive game coming down to the wire in The Big House, on the other hand, should really generate some buzz, though.

    It's a long time until signing day, but it's a step in the right direction

    Not a big win on the recruiting front.

    Any win helps. Loss to a G5 would have hurt.

    No impact. However, a loss would have had a sizable negative impact. Therefore, impact!

    That ESPN game in mid November would be huge though. No doubt about it.
