I've posted this a few times the last couple days ...
Remember, you can ignore users. Just click on the little "Ghostbusters" symbol in their avatar.
Your team. All the time.
And here we go again....
ok so I repeat.....
Alabama would disagree with you. Unless you are saying you only need 3 good recruiters on staff with southern contacts. I am not bowing at the feet of Jones but like you said....'he hasnt proven anything to deserve it'.....I say that he hasnt been given the proper chance to prove anything to anyone. Every situation is different.
You cant say it is fair to compare the guy to Auburn, Ole miss, Dooley or Fulmer.
If Jones brings in a less class than Dooley next season and has a worse record than Dooley ever did then I will agree that Jones isnt the guy. But saying he needs something else without having a proper chance to prove something is something not a whole lot of people will agree with.
So Martinez, Thigpen, Graham, and CBJ himself who has recruited Tennessee hard while at Cincy would all qualify as "southern recruiters" by your definition. Not to mention that Azzanni and Jancek have decent experience in the south. So what exactly is the problem?
lol why ignore users when it is so much fun to argue with them?
Doesn't work when other posters are quoting the poster.
Thigpen and Graham qualify, the others for sure don't and this class proves it. The results are the results you can choose to ignore them but it doesn't change them.
Auburns head coach was only one year removed from the school! Most the recruits they got this year he was recruiting two years ago! So c'mon, give me another example!
I still say it is more fun to down vote. Having said that, you might want to keep posting this regularly for a while.
Martinez doesn't count - you talking about the guy on our coaching staff that was the former DC at UGA? Not a Southern recruiter? Was his recruiting territory AK & HI while he was coaching in the SEC? The results are those of a great effort by a staff that came into a situation and improved upon it. If you cannot see that you are blind to the facts and unwilling to open your eyes.
The more you argue the be-hinder you get. A clear agenda-driven post with a weak defense coming from you.
I just love folks who start a post, statement, etc. with "I think we can all agree" as it insinuates that the dissenters to the opinion don't know what they are talking about. I usually find the person uttering the statement just thinks they know more than those they are speaking to, and as we continually see this guy does not.
Umm Kevin, I took your advice and selected ignore but, I can still read the quote when someone replys. Any way to get rid of that or do I just need to go to another thread? Lol! Thanks.
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Why would they disagree? They won a freaking national championship two years ago AND have had top 10 recruiting classes the past two. It makes no sense to compare their situation to UT's, none whatsoever!!!!!
Right,just go to the rankings and tell me again who is wrong? Martinez was fired at UGA we hired him as a lowly DB coach for a reason and I didnt hear one recruit mention his name. So keep talking the further behind you fail,oh i mean fall
Crack kills....Don't eat lead based paint chips....Being from the south doesn't make you a great recruiter. It is all relationship based, and how good of a salesman you are. Having a few ties to the south may help some but not as much as you are implying. My final words are: If Fulmer had just left, and CBJ took his place, we would not be in the shape we are in. LK, and DD as well as Hamilton, have put us in this situation. Has nothing to do with "southern recruiters".
Well AU already had good recruits committed UT didn't Dooley obviously didn't leave us in very good shape. Jones got in late on some very good recruits but its hard to come in late and pick up kids that have been committed already! You keep throwing up AU since your so happy with their class you should jump ship and be an auburn fan then when ever they get down you can find another team that is doing well and root for them! We definitely don't need to hear Debbie Downer today
That is a feature that is under consideration.
How about one where if you put someone on ignore they can't see your posts as well as not having to see theirs?
