Yup, thats genius.
Im going to go with JE doesnt want it.... Nick Satan just likes attention
Attention from fans, recruits, etc.? Yeah, why would anyone want that BS?
While we don't necessarily need to have scantily clad women manning the fax machine (though I'm not saying I'd be against it...), I don't get why the AD isn't using today to build momentum and excitement. Just look at this and other fan websites, the interest is there. The only thing our AD has right now is a link to a page that won't go live until 3:30.
You can get attention other ways than a live camera feed on a fax machine. Im not saying the AD shouldn't have some systems of updates for fans and recruits I just think the camera is a little over the top
SEC football baby
No ****. There are 157 people looking at the recruiting forum here. Recruiting luncheon is sold out. The demand is there. But the AD has its collective head up its ass when it comes to this kind of thing.
I for one wish we had it (with the scantily clad women)
An example of another school that is happy to share information as it comes across:
Has a scrolling ticker with signings and then a quick blurb about each player..
that seems more reasonable to me. I guess since im not a fan of SEC football I dont see the reason to watch a fax machine all day
I could watch the girl manning the fax machine for days
Goodness me oh my that's a short skirt... over/under on the # of times she 'accidentally' flashes her hoohah to all those crimson tide fans? Im saying 6
If that's Nike team apparel, then Nike finally got something right.
You'd think they could twitter the LOIs as they come in, at least!!!
That is something I could get behind.
NYET! You will get updates when you need updates and not a second before and you will like it. Fact.
In Soviet Russia LOI's twitter YOU!
I see what you did there. Agreed.
What is Plati's email? I am pissed about the lack of signing day coverege and gonna email him.
Get 'em Leash!
Tell him to start interviewing copy girls
Gotta be on camera or it doesn't count though...
thanks, email going out.
Platis response will likely be something along the lines of :
Dear "Unleash Hell"
Is that your real name? We don't correspond with internet scum. Why don't you go check your precious websites if you want information about CU recruiting?
Heres his response.
Coach Embree wants everything posted at once at 3:30 due to the way things are playing out with some recruits, so obviously that takes priority. Dave
Next year's excuse should be even better.
Hansen wanted to redshirt
This makes absolutely no sense. First, the information is getting out anyway. Second, the only recruits that seem to be "playing out" in a special way are all scheduled to make their announcements after 3:30. Third, how does announcing the signings of recruits that don't care in any way affect the recruits who don't want you to announce anything?
Fine, don't use the fax-camera, but that doesn't mean you need to go into a big bunker about EVERYTHING.
1) Recruits in this class are basically mercenaries who consider CU a fall back if they don't think they'll get playing time at their dream school.
2) Platti hasn't earned the trust of the new head coach when it comes to delivering a coherent media strategy. Instead of taking ownership of the NLOI media strategy, it's best to punt and pin this omission on the new guy.
3) The fans will be there whether the CUAD spoils them or ignores them. It's easier and costs less to keep hitting the snooze button.
