Acting like nothing is wrong when losing out on a top 4 star back is kind of funny. We aren't UF or UGA and can just say, " o well, onto the next 4 star RB". I agree we may be able to get one in 2015. But we need to start landing these guys on a more consistent basis.

THANK YOU!!!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one around here turning a blind eye to the failures of our recruiting. No reason Clemson should be doing better than us year in and year out.

It's that time of year again, people who don't really post in the Proving Grounds coming in and bi+ching about our class. I am ready for signing day to come and go just to the cries and moaners leave for another year.

Anyway another strong class coming in, top 5 last year, the future is bright, even if people are blind to see it.

We've stacked four star tailbacks in the last several classes. The kid from philly, carson and davis were all four star tailbacks, if memory serves. Once davis is a heisman finalist it will be even easier to keep it rolling at that position. I do not like losing a kid from havelock though. Wonder if that has anything to do with coach lawing not being around anymore.

Yeah, and how has that worked out for them on the field. JFC, some of you are quite looney.

Doesn't matter how it worked out for them. It matters how it would work for us had we been able to land the talent they have. Our coaches knows how to "coach em' up." Dabo and company don't.

LOL. This is just a dumb comment. The talent we have landed has been better, the wins on the field, prove this. The daft picks prove this.

This

I wonder if this board would have had the same meltdown over not getting this 4 star back if a few years back we had lost that "only" three star back Brandon Wilds. Wasn't much enthusiasm over him on he board then, but i wouldnt trade him for Scott. There's lots of running backs out there every year that can contribute right away.

If I'm a high school player, using 18 year old logic, there is no way I'm coming here with the backs we have on the roster. If I'm a cornerback, I'm looking hard at us. If Wilds and Davis leave next year running backs will have us at the top of their list. Remember that most recruits look at the here and now.

I guess you don't understand that the talent we have brought is has been better than theirs, the proof is in the pudding. But please continue to bi+ch, moan and complain.

So let me get this straight.

You are complaining about us having less talent than Clemson.

You are saying that if we had Clemson level talent we would have had better records over the last 5 years.

No, what I'm saying is that if we could land the 4 & 5 stars that they get, our coaching staff would turn them into better talent than what Clemson can.

LOL. Since 2009 Clem5on has had 36- 4*. Carolina 41 -4*
Since 2009 Clem5on has had 4- 5*. Carolina 2- 5*

Those 5* for Clem5on
Bellamy- BUST
Anthony- Average
Steward- average
Potkins- Lived up to the hype

Carolina's 5*
Clowney- BEAST
Lattimore- BEAST

Ave Recruiting ranking- Clem5on 18.4
Carolina 17.8

But yep, I guess Clem5on is out recruiting us.

WHAT? if we had more 4-5 stars we would be better coaches to them and they would magically propel us to many national championships like every team that manages to land 5 star athletes? Stanford, Oregon have won countless Nat. titles ....so if we can only just get those 5 star players we are guaranteed to reach the highest heights we so be all that too?
Really did Bama win it all this year? , Mich State? Ohio State?, Texas?, Oklahoma? . 5stars doesn't magically make you a better coachable college athelete....it made you a special HIGH SCHOOL athlete . Doesn't always happen in the college game, but you know that .

Typing in caps does not make your point, that was just proven to be a bad one, any better.

It's crazy because some of the top posters on here have been saying the same thing I've said for years but when C4L says it, all hell breaks loose.

Like who?

USBB, C2, ETG, posters like that have a clear solid understanding of our recruiting and tend to see what is happening, as in it is improving evey year and our record show that.

If there ae so many good backs then why did our staff only focus on 2 and lose both of them to division rivals? Seems like we should have gotten on 4 or 5 backs so we could assure ourselves of not missing out on a RB for this cycle.
