Some Recruiting Stuff

In a fit of boredom, I do proclaim:

Ronald Johnson ... NOT to Michigan.  USC and Florida are his other big suitors, but he and planes apparently do not get along sooooo Michigan State perhaps?  That'd be a coup.

Ahmad Paige, wanna be a Gator?

Joe McKnight and Deonte Thompson, you guys like partying with the USC Song Girls?

Terrance Toliver, LSU loves you baby but I hear you kinda like the thought of being a Gator.

One name I'm uncertain of but the implications are big: John Brown.  Florida's got the inside track but if Bama signs the big man it would send shockwaves through the ranks.  Nick Saban vs. Urban Meyer I, you could say.  Plus, pulling a kid out of Lakeland and away from the Gators?  That's ca-razy man.  Can Saban do it?  Find out soon.

And for a lesser-known out west, how about Omar Bolden to Washington?  He could be an all-conference performer at FS/CB/RB, someone that USC and UCLA foolishly passed on.

Sadly, Noel Devine's next destination is insignificant because he is rumored to have disastrous grades.  Wait a year and then see what we hear, eh?  Too bad, because he's the next great back to idolize - a shorter, faster, more stunning open-field player than Reggie Bush.

If I'm wrong call me crazy.  I'll just call these guys 17-year-olds.

Supposedly Bolden is down to Washington or Arizona State. I'm hoping to see him in Tempe! :)

Joe McKnight is going to LSU. USC's gonna get spanked by the NCAA, and the program will stagnate for a few years.

Only a no-good offensive coordinator from Kansas City can do that to USC.

Even if SC gets dinged by the NCAA, that's still a year off at the very least. They're in the process of bringing in another top 5 recruiting class, lost only 2 games (with chances to win on the last drive in both) in a "rebuilding year," and will open next season no lower than 2nd or 3rd. Only thing I can see causing a major bump in the road would be Pete Carroll deciding to scratch the NFL itch again, and it looks like they're gonna get through another year without that. Sucks for the rest of us, but the Trojan juggernaut is still pretty formidable and probably will be for another few years before someone else cycles to the top from the Pac 10.

USC has already declined...if Norm CHow had been there...we would have seen john david booty perform much much better last year....the offense was fine for one year...although the d-fense was faltering with ED Orgeron and we saw the evidence of this in the texas game the year before and the UCLA and fresno state game of 2005 as well.

All those teams scored buccu points on USC...the 2004 squad didn't perform like that.

Carrol is overconfident now, he woull dhave stunk it up without norm chow in 2002-2003....he thinks he is as smart as the press says he is...being "laid back" and overconfident is not going to keep a dynasty going...they still have great talent...carrol will hear that a lot when he goes 10-2 again next year...

I already added commentary about the Saban thing at the FanHouse.

wow..not on your main page...hmmmmm
February 1, 2007 | Unregistered Commenterpatrick
i mean if it were tommy tubberville saying he thought the sky was blue..you would be making fun right here..for everyone to see...where is the fanhouse anyway???

Who knows about Johnson, but it's worth noting that Donovan Warren chose Michigan over USC. That has appeased some of the fan panic over apparently losing Johnson.
February 2, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterBurrill
you are one funny dude. auburn is obviously scared..why would we play anyone who is anygood? we as fans love watching auburn play rappy teams..otherwise we couldn't beat anyone...we suck. how many excuses did you give for us beating florida again? obviously it wasn't because we were better.

Once the K-State deal is completed, AU will have at least one game against a BCS opponent scheduled for 2007, 2008 and 2009. The Tigers play a home-and-home series against West Virginia in ’08 and ’09.

Auburn’s 2007 SEC schedule also includes road games at Florida, Arkansas, LSU and Georgia.

show me a pac 10 team with a tougher schedule...go ahead..

btw...nick saban is pure class....i could see why one of the "trinity" deserves him.

Patrick,

USC would have a tougher road schedule but they're tired of coming into the SEC and laying wood on the so called cream of the crop. They've moved on and now they're gonna turn their attention to the Big 12 to hope to get a game out of an OOC team from some comference (@ Nebraska next year). Beat Auburn at Jordan-Hare check, Beat Arkansas in Fayetteville check, beat Virginia Tech in Maryland check.

USC's pretty much done with the SEC for a bit. Actually I'm pretty sure USC would be down for a re-match but you probably couldn't pay Auburn enough to sign another home and home with USC. No one likes to get shut out on their own field and have their season end after week 2.

They'll take care of Nebraska this year then move on to the Big 10 to see if they can add Ohio St to the list in 2008 and 2009.

This is getting kinda old though. Yawn.

The SEC needs to get over itself already. Play more than 4 road games for once.

i can see how that awesome conference schedule could be a grind...
February 2, 2007 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick
..oh wait..i guess it was. lol

Hey, it's nice to see more rabid conference partisans from other parts of the country.
