Strictly far as the accuracy and depth of their player evaluations and ratings overall coverage of recruiting, how do the 247, Rivals and On3 networks stack up?
Wrong. Cis said the defense and primarily the front seven would look completely different , not the entire roster. That’s impossible in a couple months. I can bump the post if ya want. We expected more guys to leave but we never said the crazy numbers like Ferman and some others. Like 10-15.
We’ve added Lictenstein, Moultree, Jackson, Agude, Messidor , C Johnson and Porter. That’s a completel face lift. And that’s more than serviceable players. That’s pretty good to good players you’ve added.
Comparing Mario’s transition class to Al or Manny’s average class is one of the dumber things i’ve read here in a long time. I’m not sure if this is a troll on your part or just ignorant. Mario threw together a top 15 class even though he showed up in Dec. Al’s classes were just big and moatly three stars. This was a quality class, small but the class score blows the two bums away in their normal full class.
247 is the best available, On3 is 2nd by default because Rivals is pure garbage.Strictly far as the accuracy and depth of their player evaluations and ratings overall coverage of recruiting, how do the 247, Rivals and On3 networks stack up?
Know a lot of folks visit those sites for the message boards and team coverage, but I'm more interested in what they deliver (or don't deliver) from the recruiting analysis and expertise standpoint.
Hope On3 can get a quality UM site up and running — as opposed to some half-baked placeholder with next to no locally-produced Cane content.247 is the best available, On3 is 2nd by default because Rivals is pure garbage.
The only thing Rivals is good for is interviews, but in terms of their actually scouting analysis ability they’re by far the worst. They’re rankings are the most random & arbitrary. Even 247’s political rankings based on camps & schools recruiting certain prospects has more legitimacy than Rivals.
On3 isn’t that bad, they’re just still a brand new site & have blind spots to work through, like I said they’re still in their infancy stage as a recruiting hub, so they’re still ironing out all the mistakes they may make in the early stages process of getting off the ground.
You can't compare MC's transition class with roughly 1 month of time post hire vs what Golden or Manny did with a full class. We can't truly fully gauge Mario's recruiting results until at least ESD this December.CIS is the best there is but even here, take it all with a grain of salt. We were told the roster would be unrecognizable but aside from DL, it’s pretty much the same.
When the hype and talk ends and you just look at the facts and results, Mario’s first class was ranked somewhere in the average Al Golden /Manny range, and the transfer portal gave us some serviceable depth plus a couple studs on DL but whiffed at RT and LB.
Rather than being a total overhaul, this team has gone from average to slightly above average which doesn’t live up to the hyped expectations
You probably said all of that just as you’re describing, but there were others saying we would add more. I said CIS not Cribby, so just know I’m not throwing shade. I didnt have you in mind, just the tone of the whole board, We had someone saying Marvin Jones was transferring here, for example.
As to recruiting, of course transition classes are tough but so what. You don’t get a handicap because you changed coaches. A&M isn’t going to spot us a touchdown because we fired Manny. You win with the guys you have, bottom line, so it’s the results in recruiting that count not the backstories.
We either have the players or we don’t. They either win their matchups or they don’t. The other stuff is irrelevant and the fact is our last class kept us on par with where we were, no more.
