Answer Friday!

Recruiting remains the main topic in this segment of reader questions.

Q: dcard1097 said:
There are recruiting services out there that will rank the same players differently. For example, Rivals ranks Jordan Simmons a 5 star, 247 Sports ranks him a 4 star. Rivals ranks Morgan Breslin a 4 star, 247 sports ranks him a 3 star. Which of these two recruiting sites has been a more credible/accurate source as far as their ranking of players?

A: I don’t really recommend a recruiting service because a lot of times this is guesswork. Remember everyone ranked Kyle Prater in the top 10 two years ago. Whitney Lewis was also a can’t-miss prospect. I think Rivals is the bigger and better known of the two. I like that 247 is tougher in rankings the two prospects you mentioned. On the other hand, they rank Aric Armstead the No. 1 prospect in the country while Rivals has him 29th. That’s quite a gulf.

A: Now that Orgeron is over his gout, I will go with him. If there is a hopping the wall competition, I might go with Mora.

    “Hopping the wall competition” = classic.

  • BoscoH

    You guys all know that if Mora can put together a couple winning seasons of the 8-5 variety and manage to coach some fundamentally sound football given what he has to work with, he’ll be hopping the wall back to the NFL at the end of the 2013 season. Anyone know when Darryl Henly gets out of the clink?

    accept this award, i do.

    thank, i must, the Cadre for all their support.

    The Force is strong with the Cadre, i sense.

    think back i do, to when the Cadre first summoned me.

    many enemies, we had to deal with: Darth Carrol, Sith Lord Garrett, Floyd Sidious…

    try to return balance to The Force, we did.

    and defeated them all, we have.

    much progress, we have made.

    but new Sith have taken their place.

    always two, there are.

    a Master, and an apprentice.

    Kiff is the Master, Padewon Barkley the apprentice is.

    a victory we must have, or multiply, or ememies will.

    may The Force be with the Cadre!
