I'm not a sky is falling guy, but our recruiting needs some serious reflection after this cycle from a coordinating stand point.

Losing Barker, Bailey, Scott, only getting 2 OL's, no RB, and it seems like all our DE recruits have grade issues reeks of failure. If we miss on either Lammons or Green IMO we did so so at cb. Smith will be a safety.

Our #1 recruit is out being courted by one of our rivals and the best program in college football and we're suppose to think that's great! Not really.

Let there be no mistake we have scholarships to give, but not enough quality takers. Looks like they didn't look at options until it was too late. How can we not get at least a visit from McClain. Is our program not better at this point than Nebraska? How could we not get a visit from Poona? I understand why they let the Miller kid go, but was it really a no win situation for a 5 star recruit?

Just hope there are some changes after this is over. It looks a mess.

Oh I forgot SOS didn't have time for Chubb.

I live in VA and every year they get 1-2 five star players as well as a number of other four star players.....and yet they go 4-8 or so every year. So why would those good players go there.....they choose VA for other much more important reasons than wins and losses.

Chris Clark thinks there will be a big behind the scenes piece this year, although it seems that's discussed every year.

I actually feel exactly the same way. I know there are things we don't see or know, but there seemed to be a lot of things that happened this cycle that caused us to miss on some guys we should have gotten.

I do think that we need to take our facility upgrades to a new level. Keeping pace is for losers. Lets decide to have THE best facilities in the SEC and accomplish that goal.

I grow increasingly annoyed and tired, however, of opening threads and having to wade through countless, stupid fights instead of recruiting information. A couple of years ago I had never blocked any poster, but now have close to two dozen blocked. Trouble is, half the time someone quotes these same people. Difficult to avoid.

Like others here, I appreciate the effort put forth to keep track of a large subject with a slippery slope, full of land mines. Just hope in the future the trash would be carried out more often. It gets worse each year.
No kidding, this past year between the recruiting whining, and the gameday whining for all three major sports, it's been very difficult to read the Gamecock Sports section this year.

Nick Chubb is not coming here.

Here will not be where Nick Chubb comes.

Where will Nick Chubb be? Not here.

If there is any other way to say it, spread the word. Not happening. Let's start talking about Clowney playing his Senior season and Skittle pooping unicorns since we are talking about stuff that won't happen, just to switch it up.

Coming here Nick Chubb is not.

Like I said, this type of conversation comes up every year and rarely does anything happen.

It kind of seems like we are way overloading on DEs. Dixon English Harris Johnson Turner Washington Cooper Thomas Sawyer Maybe - Wideman, McClain, tried to get Caldwell. Next year Blackshear, Rivers, Key... seems a bit like overkill to me.

Dixon will be a junior. Cooper is a DE project/ Johnson and Turner future DTs IMO. M Harris career reserve IMO. We NEED DEs!!

Seems to be a trend of 2 1/2 full rotations of playable Linemen for substitutions.

Yea Ward wants to play and rotate about 12 linemen a game.

We have the bodies but no one has stood out at DE, Dixon has been the only one with any flashes. There may be some attrition at the position.

I would trade a DE for an OT this class, haha
