re: 2017 Taylor Hamm Recruiting VIP Info Thread - tmc94
[quote]I think the recruiting rankings matter at some level[/quote] no, I agree 100%. I don't mean to suggest recruiting rankings are useless. I'm not a stars don't matter guy at all. But merely the difference at a certain point is just noise. Whether a class is ranked 7th or 15th on signing da...

re: 2017 Taylor Hamm Recruiting VIP Info Thread - tmc94
y'all spend waayyyy too much time obsessing over rankings. They aren't an exact science and while there are a few elite classes every year (a la Bama and OSU this year), for the most part, the difference between the really good classes, say 5 to around 20, is very small. And who actually enrolls...

[quote]Is Etwi still around or did he fall off the depth chart entirely?[/quote] yeah, he is. With Ford and Williams taking most of the snaps, there just wasn't a lot of pt to go around this year He'll be a JR next year and eligible for a scholarship. I'm not sure if he's getting one or not thou...

[quote]But not hustling is unforgivable. [/quote] unfortunately this has happened a lot in conference play. We seemed to move out of that funk the last two games and then right back. What's weird to me is some of the most egregious games have been at home...

[quote]If JJ is eligible, we win that game.[/quote] Maybe you're right. Any guard would help. Gilder has been so much better even playing 40 mpg since some of the pg load has been lifted. But Caldwell, a guy that has never played a minute of college ball, has turned into this mythical creature ...

[quote]we shouldn't have lost to some of the crap teams to which we did. [/quote] this season has been pretty disappointing in a lot of ways but let's not overstate things. We only have 1 loss to a team not currently in the top 50 in rpi. Our problem isn't bad losses, it's lack of quality wins. We...

re: 2017 Fightin Texas Aggie Baseball - tmc94
surprising to me Kolek is not in the rotation. Obviously no idea what Gabe's heard but Kolek had a great summer and took home the Alaska league cy young (or whatever) award. I can't find the scouting report I read on him over the summer but they were suggesting he showed 1st round stuff and give...

oh sure. He's definitely drafting off of the other players. Put me on the court with Michael Jordan and I'm gonna have a pretty good OE. But I'm not sure why you are critical of his usage. I don't want him taking shots (or turning it over). Team success is a function of people playing their part...

re: 2017 Fightin Texas Aggie Baseball - tmc94
that's unfortunate. I know they want the money, but I think limiting GA has long term implications (obv expansion could fix). If students can't get into the games, they won't follow the team as much and won't be long term fans after graduation. IMO the best way to grow the fanbase for minor spor...

[quote]Hogg has the ball in his hands way too often for my liking, but outside of Gilder I'm not sure I can name a player I'd rather have it in on this team. We need play makers in a bad way.[/quote] yep, this. Honestly, Hogg should probably play a Josh Carter type of role where all he does is ...

The schedule actually sets up well for us. Five of our last 10 are vs LSU, Mizzou, and Vandy. We also get Auburn and Bama at home. Win those 7 and then pull off a huge upset in any of @WVU, @UF, @Arky, or UK and 1-1 or so in the SECT and we're 20-12 with an RPI at around 50 (I used RPI fcst, pic...

re: How Texas A&M is assembling a top-10 recruiting class - tmc94
[quote]we had serious attrition issues with the 2013 and 2014 class[/quote] We didn't really have abnormal attrition in the 2014 class. 30% is about normal. There will always be guys that get hurt, don't pan out, or get in trouble. But beyond that, it's fairly healthy number as it allows you to t...
