See our record in the sec in the last three years and ask me if i give a damn that boise beat uga three years ago
Actually, it was two years ago, and this Tennessee team is NOT made up of 2 and 3 star players like you seem to imply...
That is true as well ha ha ha
lol well said!
Did you know you can go back and edit your OP so you won't have to read about you getting it wrong for the rest of the day?
Everyone has opinions and mine hasn't changed nevertheless GBO
I'm not saying change your opinions. Correct your facts. 247composite says we were not outrecruited by Vandy.
I'm not sure how the 247composite works, because Scout, Rivals, and ESPN all three have Vandy ranked higher than us. 247 and 247composite are the only ranking systems that have us ahead of Vandy.
Well I know this is a 247 site but from what I have read most of the day this is the only site that has us ranked ahead of Vandy. Rivals, Scout and Espn have us ranked behind them. Not saying I prefer their ranking just stating what they have.
Yes - in isolated instances - Boise can beat a UGA and Utah can beat a Bama, but over time the talent wins and competes for championships year in and year out.
They have changed since I posted this so let me update: (Vandy with 27 and UT with 21 signees FYI)
One site: VU is 19th and UT is 20th........IF UT picks up anyone the next few months that is a mid to high 3* we will pass them FYI.
both UT and VU have the same # of 4* players (5). They have no one anywhere close to North and Carr in this class. Wait til you see Dobbs vs McCrary at QB....Dobbs will be vastly better when its time for him to play. Go look at their playmaking WRs vs our class.....its like the Atlanta Falcons vs KY. They also lacked big uglies in a huge way with NOT one being a 4*....we signed Carr and Sanders and I guarantee you Wiesman is better than any OL they signed as Ohio St even wanted him and he was the #1 OL at our camp with Skipper and Koehler etc there.
Another site: Vandy leads 22 to 29 but that is hilarious with 12 4* players for them
Another site: Vandy leads but their equation has to be counting the lower ranked players to help their ranking as we have 4 4*s to their 3 3*s and might be adding points for the 5 lower ranked players Vandy has that UT does not in this class bc of its class sizes 27 to 21 players. Something isnt adding up from the eye test on this site.
*****and now the best in the business and why we belong here:*****
****247SPORTS Composite: UT is 25th and VU is 30th. And the 247 ranking is UT 27th and Vandy 35th. Vandy has NO one in the top 235 in the nation. UT has a bunch.....JRM 232, R Jenkins 196, North 155, Carr 117, and the most important position on the field QB Dobbs at #107.
Those classes are not even close. IMO those other sites are using the extra 6 lower rated players to build points or miss ranked on some players or has Vandy ahead of UT only bc of 3* players that are ranked higher as 3*s and that is not a good guage.
Hope this helps. Not that it matters in the end but wanted to break it down and offer my opinion. We have many more elite difference makers in this class. No coach would swap UTs class for Vandys.

Here's the deal... Regardless of where Vandy landed compared to UT, WE"RE COMPARING OUR CLASS TO VANDY. That's absurd!
Please quit making the Boise St reference to the 1 hard game they won all year. If Boise St played our schedule with the 2, 3, and couple of 4 stars, they would have gotten murdered. It's not apples to apples comparison.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
I was just answering a post...........everyone knows its only FL and UGA we need to beat to get to the SEC title game.........you can barely consider USCe IMO.
We may have not the best class of recruits on high school paper but who knows how Coach Jones can take a young three star and become what should have been a five star. And i believe with a year now to recruit our next class we will see how great Butch can be as a recruiter. My last post for the night here great class for 30 days or more to salvage the train wreck of such a joke of a head coach dooooooley
Very good stuff SV. Thanks. A is all I got left for you tonight.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
why go onto this site and post a message about Vandy's ranking from other sites? everyone is allowed to post their opinion and everyone shows their agreement or disagreement with up/down votes..you are entitled to post your opinion and everyone else is entitled to their up or down about your post.
In my opinion, the "key" is that we are actually discussing whether or not we out-recruited VANDY! Think about that for a minute. Out-recruiting Vandy is supposed to be a foregone conclusion. The fact that we're debating it tells you how big a problem we've got.
I'm also not buying the excuse that Jones only had a month to put together the class. Jones was hired at UT about the same time as Hugh Freeze was hired at Ole Miss. Look at their class and look at ours. I'm just sayin'...
Also, the debate of quantity vs. quality - granted Vandy has more points thru more recruits but our avg rating is higher - which is more important in your eyes. Of course what could also be said to some(not you tntoak) - which is more important for your agenda
