    the better. He is getting destroyed on the recruiting trail. DESTROYED. 0 for 30 in Texas for 2015. IMO if he doesn't change up his recruiting, his time in Austin will not be long. I love what he stands for, love the discipline, love the defense, but his recruiting is laughable at this point. We lost Stevenson, now Weathersby, and Lampkin doesn't seem to be solid. He recruits like he's still at Louisville.

    Agree. He also has coaches that belong at Louisville. Please Charlie, if you are not going to do anything about Watson and the suck-ass offense, at least hire some legit recruiters.

    Give it a rest. He inherited a pile of dung.

    Crap like your post just makes it harder for him to turn it around.

    Why do people post this kind of crap?

    We will be fine. He will coach them up to squeak by Memphis and Houston and such.

    Im having trouble understanding whether people are actually this dumb, or if they are trolling.


    Zero for 30? If you honestly believe that, you are a complete fool.

    He lifted recruits out of south Florida to come to Louisville. Right now at Texas, we have some big obstacles to overcome. Sec, Aggy, baylor. He has to WIN on the field.

    Butch Jones inherited a situation as bad as Charlie and is kicking ass on the recruiting trail, with the sane record as Texas too, 6-6. At this point it's excuse making. I don't expect a top 5 or even top 10, but we are in the 20's and falling. ZERO in the top 30 in Texas. He's not getting it done, plain and simple.

    This is just a sign that it's going to be a longer term rebuilding project under Strong. He'll have to do more with less to get the recruiting momentum back here. On the field improvement at a school like Texas will help a whole lot but it's pretty clear this staff won't be able to jump start the program with recruiting.

    Butch Jones has 29 players in his first two years on the job 4* or above. 5-7, 6-6 on the field during that time

    No I dont. But I 100% guarantee you that Charlie does not have the same top 30 as Ketch, nor will we miss on the entire top 30.

    Further, the assertion that we have a UL level class is moronic at best. His BEST class at UL was 29, and there is almost zero chance this class finishes outside the top 20, more likely 15.

    Beyond that, his 29-52 ranked classes put far, far, far more talent into the NFL than our supposed top 10 classes from the same time frame.

    Do I want a top 5 class. Absolutely. Do I think every top player will mesh with what CS wants to do? Absolutely not. Do I think CS is missing on a lot of guys he wants? Yes. I also think this class finishes with at least 4-5 more 4 star caliber players and that we will have filled some huge holes with very good talent.

    The happier we will all be.

    The most frustrating thing is that he could be great.

    Go look at the top 30, then get back to us and embrace the irony of your post.

    The reason you don't understand is because you don't know what you're talking about in the first place.

    Texas has exactly one Top 30 guy right now in Patrick Vahe.

    Wow this is hilarious. OB has gotten ridiculous. I primarily only come here for comic relief based on people's knee jerk reactions, and the articles by Orbea...

    I'll bet you any sum of money he doesnt get shut out on Ketch's top 30, which is in no way CS's top 30.

    Once you have a friend read this post to you, let me know if you are in.
