hey! i was buildin' up the suspense and whatnot!
4-star RB Leddie Brown Commits To WVU
Well, looks like the impact is happening right before our eyes..
Impact of Dana having a new contract? Yep... this is proof the contract helps with recruiting.
We signed how many 4 stars last year?
No no no, our recruiting will suffer for years and years , you have those extensions in place when these recruits are in middle school, DOOOM and GLOOOOM .
Me and ol Shano tried to tell you that it wasn't THAT big of a factor...and we wuz right.
Contract extension, 10 win season, 2 years without losing to Kansas. Recruiting should get better.
Don't be a stupid fuck. The lack of a contract fucked the '16 and '17 classes. The '17 class was pathetic. The results of those two years will be felt in the future when the Old Gold and Blue hits the football field to face the might of Texas, OU, and Okie St with their higher ranking classes the next couple of years.
I told all you boys that recruiting for the '18 class starts with Spring Junior days in '17. We'll see the benefit of the contract now.
The '17 class was destroyed because ole Shane put Dana on the hot seat for the 2nd year in a row in Feb. '16. As a result, there was no buzz through the '16 spring recruiting season... and sadly for Mountaineer football and its fans... it lead to no buzz in February when NSD came and went.
Wonder how this early signing period works for them..
Dana made a comment about this which made a bunch of sense to me. He said kids who enroll early don't get to enjoy all the fanfare that goes into NSD celebrations. He has more and more kids wanting to enroll in January, so the early signing period will give these kids a chance to do something special.
BTW, Brown's recruiting started when he was an 8th grader. Galloway was recruiting him.
What was the mockery... something about having extensions ready for middle schoolers?
Someone remind me... when did Brown commit? When did Dana have his extension?
I think its going to be a big benefit for Wv's recruiting effort...I think there will be less kids flipping at the last moment...
Was watching the draft...and I know this is getting granular with just "ONE" recruit but how is it that this staff didn't think Ryan Switzer could play at Wv?...
Actually they did think he could play. But, I think they offered late, and his parents were insulted.
Did he commit? Yes or no?
Your argument was that Lyons not extending Dana's mediocrity would kill our recruiting for years and years if he didn't do it early in 2016.
Well, you were wrong. Recruiting is going as well as it's going to under Holgs. Some ok years, some down years but never that dynamic year. He will butter his bread through development which fits.
Nope... you're wrong.
My argument was that Shane would have a negative impact on the football program for years. I specifically said he killed the '17 class, and hurt the '16 class. The results of those two classes will be felt for years.
I'll find my posts on this subject to prove it.
You don't want to argue this point with me...
From page 1.
Looks like I'm already feeding...
Yep... here is another pearl for you to choke on....
From bat's Holgorsen gambled on himself thread...
Pretty sure the AD is tasked with doing everything possible to help his athletic programs be successful. There is no way Shane can say he's done this with his football program.
He negatively impacted 3 recruiting classes. We have but 13 high school seniors in this year's class. We had a few highly rated recruits decommit last year when Shane remained silent during the regular season. And, the staff has had problems getting in early on '18 recruits.
I truly cannot understand how anyone believes Shane took the right course of action.
Another commit this morning, currently sitting at #45.
One spot ahead of.....Ala freggin Bama.
Yea Shane, your killing us.....
I'll bookmark this post so we can go back and revisit our ranking vs Bama's come signing day.
