I know half the Meeechigan fanbase is crying up a storm about all our "poorly ranked commits". I can't remember what I saw it on, I think it was the big 12 title game, but they mentioned how during nebraska's great run in the 90's at one point they had 7 walk on's starting. Obviouslly they wouldn't had won those NC's if rivals rankings were out, because we all know you can't win games with poorly ranked players. Just ask Larry Cooker how signing a bunch of 5 stars means you will win everygame you play. I mean its obvious that's true because of the 5 straight NC's he won, o wait whats that, his teams underachieved and he got fired???????? How can we think Michigan will ever have a winning season again without 5 stars like Mike Hart? Wait, your lying there is no way Meeeeeechigan's all time leading rusher was a 3 star. Go ask Texas how hard its been winning games with a bum 3 star like Colt McCoy, that obviouslly isn't working out well. Next time you wanna rag on a 18 year old kids "star" rankings, please go elsewhere to do so.
Tired of whanigans about 3 stars
There were like 17 threads on this a few months ago. It was kind of a touchy subject after a while when everybody got sick of it.
It had actually died down for a few days until this thread.
Might as well make use of the thread now, though. So, what are people putting the over/under at for the number of days or hours until the next 3-star lamentation thread? I would put it at about 12 days, just because I think it will be quiet until Hankins makes a decision. He, being a 3 star, will reignite the fervor all over again.
9 days. Some angry, hung-over person on New Years Day will watch the Rose Bowl and begin the goodness all over again.
Shut up about the 3-stars. Seriously, you started a new thread about this?
I'm tired of people whining about people who whine about 3-stars.
Are you whining?
So you're whining about people who whine about people who whine about 3-stars?
Hey, don't look at me. I just asked the question.
That was actually @ Magnus in the first place, sorry.
Does this mean you're whining about people who whine about people who whine about people who whine about 3-stars?
No I'm more of the kind of person that whines about people who whine about people who whine about 3-stars. In fact, I'm more of the person who whines about people that whine about things in general. But then I'm a whiner. Ah, confusing.
Ohmygod, man, get a grip! Jeez...ramble much? We're trying to have a serious discussion here!
Sorry, I was just thinking about the essence of whining itself. Yes, we need to discuss 3-stars, why we hate them, or why we hate people who hate them!
I must admit, the concept may have been broached previously.
Sorry for wasting your time, I thought my topic made it clear what this post was about. If you didn't want to hear about it anymore I don't know why you clicked on it. I really just wanted to point out the the part about nebraska's 7 walk ons starting for a NC team, my bad.
...but I clicked on this post to tell you how annoying posts like this are.
And the OP may not realize it, but he (or she) is preaching to the choir here.
Everybody here believes that if Rich Rodriguez signed a camel turd, the camel turd would be a great prospect because Rich Rodriguez can spot diamonds in the camel turds.
Stars do not matter. What matters now is that a kid commits to Michigan--that makes him an A-Grade recruit that Rodriguez obviously targeted since the day he was born.
You've been running this same game since 12-03. I suspect folks are familiar with the fact you are completely dissatisfied with the current recruits and RichRod more specifically.
Just have a merry, unpersecuted Rich Rodriguez (the poor lil guy makes $3 Mill per year to stink) Christmas!
No, it doesn't. He's too smart to be k06em01.
Simi is King of Belch.
I suspect that all three are one in the same. Just a hunch, though. I have no data to support this.
Absolutely KoB, the posting style is identical.
..Emo's style is a lot different. KoB is irreverent and obnoxious, but occasionally comes up with good material. On the other hand, emo is a very enthusiastic fan who thinks mgoboard is a 300-word twitter account that should be used at least ten times a day.
KoB like being a total D-bagger.
I really hate Rachel Dratch's face.
Long enough to tell you you are wrong. Do a simple search of this site for "recruiting rankings." Amidst a ton of user generated posts like yours, you should find at least three different posts from Brian and others (Doctor Saturday was one) linking to actual data examining this issue. The available data shows that highly ranked recruiting classes do correlate well with team success on the field. Teams that consistently recruit in the top level tend to perform at the top levels, Highly ranked players are also more likely to be drafted in the NFL than lower ranked players.
Recruiting classes don't guarantee a conference or national championship. They don't guarantee a thing. We are talking correlation, not causation. But all else being equal, it's far better to have a highly ranked class than not. And all the "Pat White/Mike Hart" comments in the world don't change those facts.
Nebraska was known for their strength and conditioning program back then. I don't know if it was steroids or they were just ahead of everyone else.
I will send him a message on Facebook and ask him and get back to you with his answer.
where you are going with Colt McCoy, but he surrounded by quite a few 4 and 5 star recruits.
And, he's roommates with Jordan Shipley. I'll bet you didn't know that (unless you watched more than 90 seconds of a Texas game this year)
...facepalm graphics handy?
sitting hear stoned outa my freaking mind, paranoid about what would happen if they ever add a 6th star. I mean 5 stars are so stupid, it's not even an even number, how the hell, just how the hell can things be balanced when you use an odd number rating system.
No longer paranoid cause i just had an aha momemt and see clearly that 6 stars would solve everthing
someone else posted another one of these 'stop whining about 3 stars' threads. i don't feel like anybody around here does anymore and when they do they generally get negbanged. you're in the wrong forum if you're looking for people whining about that stuff
