Colonels is either being intentionally stupid or just letting his latent stupidity shine through. Either way, he's stupid.
Says the guy who TRIES to recruit less than 20 WE and whose recruits look like walkons...

That's your new thing? I don't know how to recruit?

My new thing?  They're your recruits.  I know it's only your first season, but I'm not impressed.

Your elbow is the thing in the middle of your arm, your *** is the thing you talk out of.

WOW.  That is good.

P.S. - I hate the auto-profanity-filter within quoted posts.

Guys, let's tone it down a bit, ok? If you really feel the need to battle, please do it in site mail and keep it out of the forums. Thanks guys.

I'm with you bobmeyer. This was a good thread for a little bit.

Aw jeez, guys.  That's just some benign ribbing.  Plenty of examples of actual battles elsewhere.

What I find really bizarre regarding scouting is that I can get better information about a player in the recruitment process than I can from my assistant coach. Why can't my assistant tell me if a guy is a low-hi or hi-hi in a particular area once he's already in the program, but he or another assistant can during recruiting?

I think you assistant knows, but he's not telling you.   He wants you to fail like Pat Knight.  You get fired mid-season, he takes over on an interim basis, the team goes on a winning streak and...VOILA!...he's a head coach.
You can't blame him...the poor guy's been there for over 60 seasons.

The head coach should know if you know what to look for. It just takes a little observing to figure it out. The game doesn't come right out and say, " hey he has 34 points to grow in x skill" but once they are on campus you should be able to get a pretty close estimation in half a season or so.

I locked up bethel , right before the signing period, for $110. No one wanted him.

He actually isn't really good, it's just that my team is so bad he looks good.
