    Gotta hit that sweet spot of being the first offer to kids with multiple P5 offers.

    No, everyone complains when they commit without any P5 offers and no additional P5 offers come after they commit.

    So the coaches should try their best to guess on whether other P5 schools will offer rather than relying on their own assessment of whether a kid is good enough for the team? They're not psychic.

    Yes they need to offer and get better players, but disagree with criticism of them not knowing to offer before Kansas and Virginia do.. I mean if you criticize them for that, then I don't see how you can criticize them for offering kids with no P5 offers as if they should know whether or not other P5 schools will offer.

    I don't criticize them for offering kids with no P5 offers. I am, however, critical of their evaluations if they accept commits, who in the late fall, have no other P5 offers or when they're beating to the punch with offers in their own backyard. If they never offer Reinkensmyer, then fine. However, if CU now offers him, shame on them for missing the boat. Same thing happened with Stoll.

    It's odd how you ignore that we have offered a lot of kids before other schools

    You continue to push the theory that offering early is somehow advantageous. It's not.

    There's different philosophy's. Some offer guys when they are prepared to accept the offer. Others make offers that are really nothing more than a "we are watching you".

    Several years ago I helped a local kid and his Mom navigate the recruiting quagmire. He had 7 offers. They were all talking visits (OVs). When it came time to schedule them, 3 slow-played him and weren't even willing to extend the visit. They still were recruiting him, they just weren't ready for him to visit - despite an offer! WTF?

    He did 4 visits but was told before one of them, that if he wanted to commit, he had to wait as they had 7 other offers out for his position and were taking 2. He was #8 out of about 15 on their board. He ate steak and had fun, but did not like their way of operating.

    Another P5 school told him point blank that they had offered 3 and would take all 3. If he wasn't interested, they wanted to know asap so they could move on. They said get here and visit and let's go. He committed on his visit.

    There's plenty for people to bitch about when it comes to recruiting but PLEASE stop making a big deal out of how early a guy is offered.

    Expected the response.

    Oh, pretty sure we are the first offer, and only, for a 17 grad Creek DE. But continue with the stupid.

    What? I thnk you're confusing me with someone else. My points were 1. I don't like it when Colorado kids are offered by other P5 schools and THEN offered by CU later. I'm afraid it might happen with Reinkensmeyer and Jenkins as it did with Stoll and 2. I think offering kids before anyone else is just awesome, so long as they eventually are deemed worthy of offers by other P5 schools. If no other P5 school offers but only CU by late Fall, then I wonder about the merits of the offer.

    And once again, MacIntyre has been the first offer to many in-state kids. Quit with the agenda, it's bull****.

    Posts removed from Dillon's thread cause it is a broader discussion and, as one gif pointed out, rather ridiculous.

    Allbuffs, where we work harder, not smarter.

    I know you are tongue in cheek here, but to emphasize: Not at all. Lots of behind the scene stuff that doesn't get appreciated. Plus the recruit threads etc that nik and others do.

    It depends, are we talking paid work for his employer, or free work for allbuffs?

    Good example, a lot of teams put out conditional offers. Such as "we have offers out to 4 guys at your position, we are taking the first 2 to commit." So if you wait you may lose out. Also it is common to extend an offer on an official visit.

    I'd say, yes, definitely.
