    Read this somewhere else.

    Steve Sarkisian: "we caught some king salmon this year, and we're not going to worry about losing some little guppies."

    If true, I guarantee this is going to come back and bite him in the ass. When some teams are recruiting against him, the players on the other teams can say: "Yeah Sarkisian told me how great I was too, but then referred to me as a guppie. You want to play for that guy?"

    Good bulletin board material for next year's game! Make no mistake, if he really wasn't butt hurt over losing those guys he would not have said it. I'm loving it!!

    Who cares.

    It is time to find some Pac-12 rivalries. We may have just started one today.

    Sark is a fiery type of coach. He is perfect for UW after they went 0-12. He is their answer to bring them back to dominance. And he is doing quite well in that department.

    Embree is our answer. And he just scored some points.

    His quote was essentially "We hit some big salmon today... a couple of Alaskan Kings here.... I'm not gonna lose sleep over a couple guppies."

    I love it! He's got moxy and he wears it on his sleeve.

    Make no mistake, losing Jackson, Asiata and Nembot hurt. Picking up Asiata and Nembot is huge for CU, and both are great-gets.

    But for UW, all of their must-haves signed a LOI today. Locking down the state and keeping the highest-rated recruits was much more important than recruiting guys who would be redshirting this Fall. Overall the recruiting class is solid and another step in the right direction for UW. (I'll have more later)

    I think we'll see some fierce recruiting battles between UW and CU in the future....

    I think as a "newbie" CU cannot just "choose" a rival...it has to build. It's up to CU to prove themselves...this is what Buff fans wanted and it could take some time before CU is taken seriously.

    Agreed. Recruiting battles are the first step. I don't care who our rival eventually becomes. I care about today. We won a battle today and I'm thrilled.

    You sure you're not a closet Nubs fan? Because you sure sound like one.

    I don't care about U-Dub's class only about CU's. Coach Sark is a prick and I look forward to CU kicking his ass on a regular basis. :smile2:

    Then feel free to ignore how our new conference recruited.

    The fact that this thread was even started tells me people do care about how our new conference foes are doing.

    To each his own.

    A wiser man than me once said its not about the guys you didn't get but the ones you do that you can't use. Coach Sark would be well advised to listen to this advice.

    And that is who coach Sark is. Love him or hate him. I've watched what he has done with the 'mutes for the last two years and I happen to like the guy. UW historically is very similar to CU. We would love a coach like him the same way we will love Embree.

    In fact, Embree said three times that he was thrilled we stole a recruit from UCLA. I'm sure they are not happy with those quotes.

    I am biased. I'm married to a 'mute fan. The similarities between the two programs are painful. I really hope to be where they are in two years.

    Sounds a lot like Fuskerspeak, we got the ones we wanted and the other ones really didn't matter anyways even though we would be wetting ourselves if we got them they can't be any good (not good enough to play now, must be redshirts next year) because they went someplace else.

    UW got some good kids, some who I would have liked to see in Black and Gold but for Sark or anyone else to say that the "guppies" got away is sour grapes much like we are used to hearing from our red neighbors. . .

    That's exactly what I was trying to say. My only other point was that outside of seeing the names of the guys that our other conference foes got I don't really care to see any more in depth analysis of other said program on a CU board as far as how those guys fill the program's needs. With that said, this board is a free exchange of ideas and I respect that. To each his own.

    Hello...welcome to the new PAC...I've been a life long USC fan and a secondary CU fan because those twains never met before. Now I have to deal with it.

    But, CU fans cannot expect to come in like guns blazing because Hawkins did a number on the program that needs to be rebuilt. Don't you think it's better to come in, quietly and modestly, and establish the program with new coaching staff, etc. and then see what happens? The PAC doesn't care about a MNC back in 1990. This is a new world!

    We are talking about football right? Of course CU is going to come in all guns blazing. Its a cut throat business that takes no prisoners. What the hell do you expect us to ask the other coaches if its okay if we talk to some recruits. Being passive doesn't work in this business or most other competitive industries. We are who we are and are proud of it. Look forward to playing USC every year!!
