    Its in his thread but it looks like you can kiss Devin Ross good bye, and better yet it looks like he's headed to our "rival" Utah. Regardless of what we think of some of these players who are de-commiting this is a huge issue. The one thing this staff was supposed to be able to do was recruit. Right now we have the worst recruiting class in the pac-12 and we are losing people from that. These guys literally cant do anything right at this point.

    Let's hope there is someone out there waiting in the wings that can replace him in this class, I guess... :huh:

    This will be a lost class. If Embree stays around for '13, it probably will too.

    It is never good to have a lost class, but if we're going to lose one, this would be the one. Small class. Next season? Holy cow. Keep Embree around and then have a new coach come in to recruit ~25 players in a month? Sounds like a recipe for success.

    What scares me is that this class might not be so small come signing day.

    It's definitely still in flux. We better be adding players that are more like Ragin III instead of fillers.

    Honestly who would come here unless they were die hard Buff fans? This class is going to be exactly like DII's 5th year lame duck class. Everyone on the planet knows DIIbree is gone, just a matter of when.

    Unfortunately for the CU faithful our DII admins will wait until the end of 2013 ensuring that we wreck as many recruiting classes as possible.

    To call it a rebuilding year, don't you at least need to start rebuilding? We have been in 7 years of demolition.

    I'm just waiting for the hammer to drop w/ Sefo. I have no inside info on this but I am definitely worried he decommits too.

    Even die hard Buff fans are turning (or being turned) away.

    How do we keep any recruit who has another offer? I can't blame someone for choosing any other D1 school right now. This just sucks to be a fan of...

    Whatever happens with the coaching staff, I hope it happens quickly and that, whatever the changes are, they are appealing to recruits.

    Fortunately for CU, Ross may not have other committable offers.

    Bobo is a little more concerning. Idaho is coming after him hard.

    We lost a recruit to a program that was the fat kid without a seat when the music stops in musical chairs? Idaho is in serious danger of having to go FCS. :cry:
