Those guys sure are silly.
Scout is garbage.
We cannot take the top spot there.
Their system is simple, and the most you can get per player is 300 points. Us winning their ranking is a numerical impossibility at this point being 700 points down.
We still have a consensus top five class and it looks like a composite #1. Anyone know how this class ranks on paper compared to the best of the Saban era? I am guessing that '08, '09, '11 and '12 are in the conversation.
if you signed 40 3*s you could have the number one class over there...if you sign 85 3rd graders in one class, it would be top 10
Ucla ranked above us. Nuff said
That isn't really true, they do limit it to the top 25 players.
But, it's still weighted heavily to pure numbers. It takes 15 five stars to equal 25 four stars in their system. So if USC had signed 14 five stars, all the best at their position, and 1 four star, and Michigan 25 four stars, they would rank Michigan higher.
Their player rankings aren't all that bad, the problem is how they get their team rankings out of it.
On paper, this is the best class of all of them. We did sign 32 playrs in 2008, so it may have had more depth, but the top quarter and top half of this class are unprecedent.
For whatever strange reason, don't know what it is, but I suspect we have a better class than ucla.
This is why i told lucky it was dumb to use them in the Composite rankings when they first came out. JMHO
But i am broke and i won't make as much money in my whole life as he will this year. So i would still say he is WAY Smarter than me when it comes to this. HA HA
They are the sagarin of recruiting.
Just heard Newburg of Scout on JOX. They asked him who had the top class and he said OSU with Michigan right behind. Then he said this. "But player for player, give me Nick Sabans class and call it a day."
So even they know their rankings are the suck.
"We're modern-day gladiators, and that mental toughness is really important to have in a good team." Nick Saban
Even Kirk McNair who writes for Scout tweeted that any system that didn't end with Alabama having the top class needs to be redone.
looked at it,.,.. they say we have 14 of top 100, (next closest is 8), and the most 5 stars with 6. confused on how system works
Rivals said it was the best class ever yesterday on Twitter.
Not that it matters because they're still wrong but we ended up at #3 in their rankings after everyone signed.
