We’re not talking about those kids. We’re talking about the elite of the elites who just “figured out” they can all go to Miami and win together, which is beyond ridiculous, obviously.Out of the thousands of potential college football players in their senior year how many will be receiving 100k, hell 50k to go to a certain school?
It is extraordinary that this bears repeating, but it does.We’re not talking about those kids. We’re talking about the elite of the elites who just “figured out” they can all go to Miami and win together, which is beyond ridiculous, obviously.
You think Jacorey Brooks just realized that, “hey, if all the ballers in Miami go to Miami, we can win a natty” ?? He had a fucking epiphany? Yeahhhhhh....nope. He knew that, because it’s fucking common sense. But he doesn’t care, because he’s gonna get a lot of money to go to Tuscaloosa, who now has a track record of taking kids just like him and making them millionaires in the league after they make them hundreds of thousandaires to sign a LOI. This isn’t anything remotely new. All the elite kids down here didn’t just grow brains all of a sudden. They know and have known for a generation, if we all went to the same school, we’d dominate. And they’re 1000% correct. But they don’t care, because money talks. Period. The end.
I feel like even just a solid Miami product would attract the best players out thereOnly a couple handfuls of recruits are getting $250,000 deals in a recruiting cycle. Thing is, its only a handful of schools that can realistically offer it.
Additionally, even smaller hookups are highly enticing to many recruits.
We've just got to offer our best product to push back.
It’d certainly help. No doubt about it. But it’s very, very hard for a 17 year old kid sleeping in a 2 bedroom house with 7 brothers and sisters to tell his momma that the man with the heavy bag who came to the house is really nice, but I want to stay home and play for Miami for a much, much lighter bag of money.I feel like even just a solid Miami product would attract the best players out there
