    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 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.

    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.

    Charlie is getting killed. How many of the top 15 in Texas does he have ? Zero?

    Good grief. His post was moronic at best.

    He made about 2 points in some lemming rant right before he jumped off a cliff. Both of which are wrong and dumb.

    1. Charlie will be 0 for 30 in the top 30. Wrong.
    2. Our class is the same level as his UL classes. Wrong.

    Keep defending stupidity.

    Recruiting is about having assistant coaches that can recruit and that have good in state contacts. CS brought a staff with him that are not good recruiters and have no Texas contacts, hence the shutout in the top 30. As many of us have been preaching for months, Chambers couldn't recruit his ass with both hands and Koenig isn't any better.

    Between Mack hanging on for four years too long and then screwing up the Saban hire, we are looking at several more years of mediocrity. F**k Mack Brown and that idiot powers for not having the balls to get rid of him.

    My wife's a UT Jr gal so I go to at least one game a year. This is spot one. He inherited a worse situation than Strong inherited talent wise - his QB play the first 2 years is worse than Case and Swoopes, his OL this year was as bad as worse than Texas but he's selling the Tennessee program, the tradition, and the kids play hard, just like our's do for Strong. The difference is, he's playing a ton of true freshmen and sophs so he's set up well for the future - we have some talent coming back as well but the majority of our top players graduate.

    Nice shot.

    I think it is way to early to start wanting to dump staff and re-shuffle. Hard job ahead.

    His post was akin to the posts people had wanting Strong to put Heard into the TCU game.

    This will be a long term project with several bumps in the road. that being said, I think we will all be rewarded with a great product when the rebuild is complete.

    Just Stop. Your act is getting old.

    He is going to get Boyd and Hill. Plus 3 or 4 florida kids. Plus Clark the TE.

    Sorry certain recruits want stuff handed to them and babied. Not who Strong is. Go play for Sumlin and enjoy your 7 win seasons.

    And guess what, when you do that, the fanbase tends to be patient because they see a direction and growth. Who the hell knows what direction we're going. 2 game regression on the field over last season and crap recruiting.

    Tennessee is the only school in that state unless you think Vanderbilt is equal to TCU, Aggy or Baylor. Also Butch is gone soon cause he will get caught cheating again like at Miami and UNC.

    I think you are the one that may be posting crap. Check the national recruiting ranking the last 4 years, we have 2 second places and 4th and 6th.
    Overall that's 2nd only to bama's #1 for that 4 years. That equates to some very good talent but don't let the facts stand in the way of all your excuses!

    That is HILARIOUS. He will probably get Boyd. Not getting Hill. He might get 1 or 2 of the Florida kids.

    Except what you just posted isn't what he said.

    1.) He said we're currently getting shut out of the Top 30.
    2.) He said the staff still thinks they're still at Louisville.

    less than a year of recruiting these guys is a little difficult to compete with guys who have been recruiting them for multiple years.
