This was in today’s paper. It says UT is recruiting well by the services but they fail to develop talent and when a kid signs with them, his star ratings go up. This has been mentioned here on this brd over the yrs now the chronicle is saying the same.
Mainly I’m posting this bc the recruiting services want to sell magazines so p5s get higher stars some of which are suspect so they can sell more mags and p5 schools buy more.
I firmly believe that we’re getting better athletes than what the final rankings say and if we just get 3 star kids we can be a top 25 team with coaching/the right coach. They tend to take stars away if they sign g5.
Also coaching is the biggest X factor. When UH has good coaches in bb and football , we’re good with those same 3 stars. We beat fla st with 3 stars for ex. and often times 3 stars play with more hunger.
If we have good coaching , we can be a top 25 team with 3 stars. Sampson is an ex and Herman had us destroying fla st with 3 stars other than Ed. I do really believe we need a dual threat on roster to pop in as a change of pace. LSU has no problem rotating qbs like that historically. I know it’s a confidence issue with your starter but I think you lay it out as we need to win and your still the starter but now and then we’re rotating. I hate that coaches are stubborn on this mostly.
So this is how I know we’ve gone a little off the rails on the Chronicle. “I can’t be believe the Chronicle is dragging Texas for being mediocre! They should be singing or praises for ascending to mediocrity!”
