So yes smoke and fire.... at the same time I would wager Vanderbilt is probably the only school in our conference without bag men so I don’t like to judge too much.
No judgement. Hopefully our bagmen are getting better.

Funny how Clem$on was accusing us for having bag men, if that’s not the pot calling the kettle black I don’t know what is.

Exactly, most fans realize it’s a unwritten rule. But for whatever reason they really really want to belive there is “sumtiin special in dem hills”. Mean while scroll thru tee Higgins instagram and it becomes pretty clear the only thing special about them is they use a church instead of “anonymous friend of the program”.

Yeah, what made it great was Pickens commitment right in front of Brent Venables and 3 of the would be first round Dlinemen they paid, oops, talked into coming back for their Senior year to try and win it all. Stole one right from their backyard (5*, to boot), the first in 8 recruiting cycles since Clowney, and now we’re paying recruits, just laughable.

I know Hillinski maybe the most likable commit we have in this class (considering what he's overcome in terms of dealing with grief at his age etc), but Pickens is on another level in terms of embracing the "rivalry". Kid is bringing back the edge we had on Dline during the Spurrier years (no offense to Kinlaw and other guys who definitely seem to be brining the nastiness back as well).

Thanks to the clemson staff for nearly harrassing him every night with phone calls, no “bag man” was needed.

Sucks about McClendon. All we can do is get him on campus and see how it goes.

I never expected him to commit to us. McClendon's go to UGA. Move On to Moore.

After reading Chad Simmons article it is quite clear we have not been in this race for awhile if ever.

Well recruiting momentum is in the toilet right now. We have missed on Jackson, McClendon, Steele, Reports are we are gonna miss on Hill and McCullough. Doesn't seem like we are gonna finish strong after starting so hot. JUST my opinion.

The "finish" is 7 months away. We have 7 spots available.


You do the math.

Yeah, after such a hot start, things have definitely fizzled out. Could really use "win."

As it is, it'll still be a good class, just not the epic class it was shaping up to be early on.

Hmm, didn't we just get a nice win on a big stage in Mullins?

He was a nice pickup for sure, but we've missing more than hitting lately.

You miss more than you hit in recruiting in general. That's the nature of the game when you throw out a couple hundred offers and only bring in 25 or less.

Sure, it's the nature of the beast.

But I get what Ironfan is saying. When this all kicked off it looked like we were going to have a class for the ages, all the recent misses have sapped some of that. Plus add in that some of the recruits we have missed on were considered heavy leans for us at one point in their process, just makes the misses that much more obvious.

I mean, I know there are some fans who would only sing praises about our class if all we signed were 2* recruits, but nobody can really deny that our recruiting momentum has hit a bit of a wall as of late.

It's the dead period and we have 7 spots left and 7 months to fill them. Nothing to worry about right now.

I don't think anyone has conveyed worry. Just an acknowledgement of the obvious that our momentum has hit a wall.

I was castigated for my post saying missing on McClendon would be a back breaker. The blow to recruiting momentum was my inference there.
