    Nice start to '17. It looks like CJF and the staff are making VA the primary focus of '17. I think that is a good thing.

    Anybody have an idea on how Crosby is going to decide? Sounds like it is down to us and Tenn now with an announcement on the 22nd. 247 is all over the place, but seems like they think Butch is gonna secure his commitment.

    I love how we had players that were 4 star recruits (247) previously get lowered in ranking as soon as they commit. First the dude from F-burg and now Keene. So annoying.

    Keene looks like a headsy player. I am REALLY excited about our recruiting right now!!!

    A lot of chatter that Garbutt it is being swayed by his HS school coach to go elsewhere. Unfortunate.

    Been lurking here and there on some other boards. Honestly guise.. The negativity by some of the fanbase is becoming unbearable and almost too much for me to look at. I know they only represent a small portion of our fanbase (I think?), but when Bitter is tweeting that a hot board topic is geared around some wanting to shitcan our coach 6 months into his tenure (because of a current recruiting ranking) that's borderline embarrassing.

    Recruiting is such a fluid thing nowadays. I still follow, but my interest has decreased considerably. Hopefully Fuente and Co. can come out strong and get 8+ this year, or I might just have to stop visiting some boards altogether, as the folks with pitchforks will be out in full force.

    Hope everyone on the hoop is doing good. Looking forward to the season getting going.

    Those people are just dumb and impatient. While their general premise is correct, that being you have to win recruiting if you're going to win consistently at a national level, its ridiculous to get all up in arms about it right now. Fuente has been on the job for a handful of months. Dude probably can't even navigate himself around VA comfortably yet. And its not like the people he retained (Foster specifically) bust their balls at recruiting either. We need to wait at least a couple years to get a sense of how good a recruiter he is.
