What in the holy f**k is the matter with you?
HCMM has recruited well given his circumstances. He salvaged Embree's class with some pieces that have contributed in huge ways as freshman. Addison Gillam, Chidobe Awuzie, Michael Adkins. There are quite a few freshman that we haven't seen from that class that I anticipate will be major contributors next season and spent this season redshirting to get bigger, stronger, faster.
The class he is working on now is filling out nicely. We are beating out some BCS teams on a few guys. We are hitting areas of need. Coach has nothing to sell except his vision right now. Wait for the facilities plans to be announced and wait until we make a bowl game again and watch recruiting take off. HCMM has a plan and I believe we are on schedule if not slightly ahead of schedule on the road he is taking us on.
Don't go there. He isn't interested in that kind of stuff. He'd rather bloviate about how bad things are.
Totally, unequivocally disagree - things are absolutely not on the right track. Only a CU fan could be delusional enough to think this is the case with as bad a recruiting class as I have ever seen from a BCS program.
A program does not get better in the PAC 12 by recruiting a group of choir boys and good students who only have the athletic talent to compete in the Mtn West/WAC. Their lack of BCS offers proves this is the case. This staff has the worst collection of recruiters ever at CU, and it is not even close.
If you want to call that being on the right track, be my guest.
OK braniac, I'll bite: Given the current state of CU football, how, exactly, do YOU propose we improve our recruiting? Keep in mind that we're one year removed from being the abolute worst football program in America. With that in mind, how are we supposed to recruit the kinds of players that you're talking about?
Ok **** head...
Apsay: 3* 2 BCS offers
Bennion: 2*/3* 3 BCS offers
Brown: 3* 1 BCS offer
Dotson: 3* 5 BCS offers
Franke: 3* 2 BCS offers
Gamboa: 3* 1 BCS offer
Jones: 2* 1 BCS offer
Kaiser: 1 BCS offer +
Keeney: 3* 1 BCS offer
Lee: 3* 2 BCS offers
Lopez: 2*/3* 1 BCS offer
Mathewes: 2* 1 BCS offer
Miller: 3* 2 BCS offers (IMO Only doesn't have more because there is 0 chance he doesn't go to CU)
Rodriguez: 2*/3* 6 BCS offers
Sanchez: 2* 1 BCS offer
Shaver: 2* 2 BCS offers
Smith: 1 BCS offer (JUCO) +
Walker: 3* 2 BCS offers
Watanabe: 3* 2 BCS offers
White: 2*/3* 1 BCS offer
Witherspoon: 2 BCS offers (JUCO) +
Bolded are guys who only hold offers from us at the BCS level. Most hold many other offers from non AQ, FBS programs.
+ Indicates a player who is unranked on the major services. Of the 3, 2 are JUCO which is much farther behind on the ranking priority list.
That is a class full of solid, core, athletes. This class is one that will plug our holes and at least get us back to .500
Usually you only count other teams as bcs offers.
I think that's why he bolded the guys with 1 BCS offer. Because we were the only BCS offer.
Why? We are a BCS Program. Despite our recent history our offers still carry the weight of playing in the Pac-12 Conference.
Well he also counted us for every other recruit.
Well no chit. If we offer they technically have a bcs offer. Duh. But thats not the point. If CU offers Jay mac and he commits , do we say ,"Well at least he has a bcs offer?":wtf:
IMO our offer carries weight. That is why I listed it. But because of opinions like yours is why I noted that many of the players that only have a BCS level offer from also carry FBS level offers from many other programs.
John Henderson retiring
Shouldn't Jay Mac just be a walk-on anyway? His dad makes more than $2,000,000 a year, he can get instate tuition, and he can even live at home. Why would HCMM want to use a scholarship slot on him?
HCMM has said his son has always had the dream of earning a scholarship to go to college. He will give him every opportunity to do that. If that is here than so be it.
If they commit to us, the offer is rather implicit. No need to spell it out.
I didn't trust that he would understand that.
That's not what he did.
Itt we learn all of our commits have offers from cu.
Yes he did.
Watanabe 2 bcs offers: Utah and CU
Witherspoon 2 bcs offers: Udub and CU
I cant believe recruiting is so ****ty that it is important enough to clarify that we are indeed the only BCS offer. Pump away sunshiners.
Short of cheating, please give me an idea of how anyone could recruit better given our situation? Only type of guy that could do it, would be name guys like Gruden, Urban, Saban, Miles, etc. They won't be coming here with the culture we have. No way.
Low standards eh? Anyways 10th recruiting doom threAd in the last couple weeks. Is that a record?
Not low at all. But it is unrealistic to expect them to bring in top rated talent right away. It just doesn't happen. Especially not with the facilities the way they are and our recent history as bad as it is. I fully expect our staff to begin bringing in upper level talent as soon as we get plans together for facilities and we return to the post season. But we have to do this the old fashioned way. We don't have the benefit of a coach or a staff that can recruit just because he is who he is.
Well idk about you but I have higher expectations than the worst ranked bcs class. Besides Connecticut we have the lowest star average of any bcs program. Lower than Cal, Purdue, KANSAS, South Florida etc.
Which is totally different from your McIntyre example where we are his only BCS offer, then saying "he had a BCS offer". When we were the only offer, he made that very clear.

Facilities is big but that's not the only sell. Plus MacIntyre has been selling our facilities to recruits already (see rivals). S2S... what is your expectation? And, "I have no expectation... Let Mac get whoever he wants" etc etc doesn't count
We've got 5* mods. Carry on.
I am expecting upper level 2*/3* guys at positions of need. I expect that once we get to post season for us to be competing for upper level 3*/4* recruits. I expect us to begin beating out non-AQ schools for talent this year and certainly next year.
What exactly has he been selling to recruits? "We have facilities coming, but we don't know what they will be, what they will look like, or where they will be built." That sounds like a whole lot of nothing. Until he is presenting rendered photos and 3D models, I think it is just about pointless.
