Another solid class will be great . But we need lock own some guys like Adams!
I beleive the Tigers are finally at the point of turning the corner to he next level, but that wont happen unless we pull some of the top guys again .

And there goes that free All day commercial from Clemson compliments of ESPN on Wednesday.

Maybe we should hire Tommy back as our Recruiting Coordinator since we can have a RC that is not a coach on the field with the new rules change.

Notice how it is the two with low post numbers that are questioning everything. But I now see why.
lol Ive been a member for 2 years just recently started posting more frequently here....you act like i just came here to start crap today...TI was on par with what happened with steward and has been on every recruit since i've been there...just because you're butt hurt because of what i said earlier is your problem not mine...not telling you what TI is saying about other recruits as that is paid intel and not worth risking my membership over

We already have 6 DT's and 1 commited so even if we dont get adams, 4 of those 6 have good experience and it will show up this season. If we get admas tht would be HUGE but still we have experience and players at DT tht can be match winners.

OK you said it. Not that it means anything. Here's the reply, as if you shouldn't know already...

it is up to YOU to read what you want to; believe what you want to; assimilate what you want to; trust what you want to; assess what you want to...

it's up to YOU. So Robert didn't "let you down". I am very sure he has been very careful with his words. I am also sure that he is professional but human, and as such makes mistakes, even with credible info. Whoopee!

That and an hour on the couch generally cost you about $100.

I am totally amazed at the those that seem to be reveling in a prediction that Coz made yesterday might not come to fruition. That is PITIFUL SERIOUSLY PITIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who gives a rats ass which website said or predicted what. If we don't get him people, IT IS A LOSS FOR CLEMSON NOT A FRICKIN website. Does your loyalty lie to a website or Clemson? Ask yourself that question
If you don't like what you get here(but it sounds like you are getting up to the frickin date info) then go away...anything else makes you look like a "ninner ninner ninner 4-year-old" that needs to get a life

Folks it happens every year around this time. We get lots of trash coming on the site from another place. We will do our best to take our the trash again.

We give out the best information we have on a situation. Believe me there was plenty of reasons for our percentage on Adams. We will share some of that after signing day as well as info on some other situations.

In the end it obviously looks like he won't be signing with Clemson. For those that have followed our recruiting coverage over the years (not those that just joined in the last month and are making noise) you know our record has been as good as any. We've nailed some that others haven't for sure.

We have also done something that nobody else in the business does this year with our Countdown to Signing Day Daily Trackers. We have received great feedback on that feature, but I must admit days like today make us wonder if we should do that in the future.

You know Barb, seriously..I don't mean to be tactless, but by any chance have you got an older sister or something? I may look better on the internet, but at least I don't show my stupidity and lack of class here as well...

All he did was share with use the info that he had at the time. He tries his best to keep us informed and up to date. When he felt that he needed to change those numbers he did. He is keeping us up to date with what he knows. Who knows, he might get a call tomorrow that changes this again. What would happen then? Would all those other recruiting people lose their credibility then? Would the same people come back on here and say that Ard does not have a clue?

Robert made a prediction...let me say it again, slower, so you'll understand...

P-R-E-D-I-C-T-I-O-N

Never once did he make a guarantee. We're dealing with fickle 18 year olds. Things change. Get over it. If you like Ard's site so much better, good riddance! You guys are ridiculous.

No reason to dispose of the trash; I am quite sure Barb can hold her own.

And as to the Trackers - great addition. Percentages are only percentages. Nobody beats Vegas every time either, but ervyone sure does check the line first....

Dont think Dabo would go this route and glad he wont and I hate to even say it but darn, we are gonna have to start cheatn it seems and paying. Heck, everyone else is doing it and not getting caught. Indoor Practice facility and back to back pretty good seasons with an ACC Championship and a win over LSU sure did not do us much good.

I understand E$PN/$EC schools coming in and $tealing recruits to an extent. What I don't understand was how Dabo and company were so successful selling the program when we were 6-6, now we have won 10+ games for 2 straight years, broken all kinds of records, and they drop like flies. That's where my frustration lies. Nothing against the coaches, but what are the other schools telling these kids??? I feel we have a great OC and DC in place, and quite frankly an awesome HC. What's the deal? Auburn and Tennessee flat out SUCKED this year and they are recruiting like gangbusters...

That sir is 100% incorrect. Robert was the only one that had Steward nailed, not the day before signing day but about 10 days before signing day. Not that it matters now

1. Why would I be "butt hurt" over a thread on the internet?
2. Your opinion of Robert is your opinion. If I disagree with it that is my opinion. I expressed my opinion on the subject since you shared yours.
3. I do not think that over 200 post would be considered a low number of posts. That was why I seperated it from the rest of the post. I should have put it in another post rethinking it.

Barb---- love the post!

Get the hell of this site if you're gonna rag on Robert for telling us how it is at that moment in time, for FREE. Sometimes the truth hurts but if you're new to recruiting, you better get used to it.
