Numbers are the only reason we didn't finish in the top 12 IMO. If we could have signed 25-27. We would have easily been up there.

Coached did a fantastic job in the last few weeks.
The one thing Clemson truly excels in is failure.

Same ole Taters ... their awesome class didn't address the oline and dline issues that have led to 5 straight beatdowns from Carolina's hob nailed boot, so they go with the "your 10th in the SEC" in recruitng spin ...

Do they get extra points in November for having a higher rated class or will the game start 0-0? That is how much it matters. Let them have it, they NEED it.

Because our conference is that damn good. But they don't want to admit that.

Heck Auburn was the Natty Runner up and they only finished 9th overall....




....which was good enough for 7th in the SEC!!!

I'd say LSU and Bama have far and away the best classes in the SEC but we really aren't that far off from UF, UGA, AU, and even A&M.

247 provides a composite ranking averaged and culled from the major recruiting sites. Our class finished ranked 15th. Clemson finished ranked 18th.

This + keeping BAW committed when Bama and UGA pushed.

Hopefully some of the 'realists' around here will lighten up a bit and start to have a little more faith in the staff.

I'm very excited about the depth and quality of this class, especially at the positions of need.

Another great day to be a Gamecock!
