If 2012 is a lot like 2011, it will be up to you to carry the torch.

Recruiting
 
Do any of you follow recruiting in detail? I had a conversation about that tonight with my buddy(a UF fan). He was talking about all the different guys that were being recruited and about watching games and videos and things online before they even signed. I guess I just don't understand putting that much into watching a kid that may or may not play for your team and also may never see the field. I might go online to look at recruiting ranks or where some higher profile kids signed but that's about it.


What say you?

The minimal extent I follow it is when UNM signs a recruit I read the article on what they say about him. If he is a "top" recruit-- say "B" for the big schools I may go to rivals and check him out.

But that is the way of the bottom of the heap like at New Mexico, Tennessee and FAU.

I find it fascinating. You'd be surprised at the trends in recruiting and how it relates to the success of a team.

Luckily, I work with the Rainman of Missouri Football (and college football in general, to a slightly lesser extent), so I can stay reasonably informed with very little work.

I really like Snyder. Was neat to see him go out and check on an injured player and actually help him get up and get off the field. 1st class guy.

That's about where I'm at with it. I followed the Terrelle Pryor fiasco.. Now I wish he'd went to PSU or UM. :puke1

I understand the relation, I just can't get excited about a player till he signs and is in scarlet and grey.

Nice to have a friend like that!!!My buddy although a UF fan follows most recruiting of the major schools, so I get my monthly OSU recruiting update from him. Naturally regardless of how many stars an OSU commit is he says they suck and are head cases. :lol3

No doubt, what he has done for that program and the way he's done it, doesn't get much better. :clap

Next year's BCS title odds released in Vegas
 
Interesting comments at the bottom :deal


http://eye-on-collegefootball.blogs....56338/34207546


The 2012 BCS national championship game is still four days away, which means it's entirely too early to start discussing the 2013 BCS national championship game, right?

Nonsense--particularly if you're the sort of college football fan who's paying attention to what Las Vegas is already saying about that 2013 championship. Blog Kegs n' Eggs has compiled the early national title odds released this week by the Caesars Palace sportsbook, and the favorite won't surprise anyone who's taken a look at their defensive depth chart: LSU checks in at the top of the list at 3/1.

The Bayou Bengals are followed by USC, at 6/1 following the return of Matt Barkley. Alabama (7/1), Oregon (9/1), and Arkansas (12/1) round out the book's "top 5."

Here's the rest of the contenders as sorted by conference, with some commentary to follow:

ACC

Florida State: 18/1
Virginia Tech: 18/1
Clemson: 28/1
Miami: 90/1
North Carolina: 100/1
Virginia: 100/1
Georgia Tech: 100/1

BIG 12

Oklahoma: 18/1
Kansas State: 25/1
Texas: 30/1
Oklahoma State: 40/1
TCU: 50/1
Baylor: 75/1

BIG TEN

Michigan: 18/1
Nebraska: 30/1
Wisconsin: 40/1
Michigan State: 40/1
Penn State: 100/1
Iowa: 125/1

BIG EAST (WE THINK)

West Virginia: 50/1
Cincinnati: 75/1
Louisville: 100/1

PAC-12

USC: 6/1
Oregon: 9/1
Washington: 50/1
Stanford: 60/1
Arizona State: 75/1
Utah: 100/1
Washington State: 100/1
Cal: 100/1

SEC

LSU: 3/1
Alabama: 7/1
Arkansas: 12/1
Georgia: 15/1
South Carolina: 28/1
Auburn: 30/1
Florida: 35/1
Texas A&M: 60/1
Mississippi State: 75/1
Missouri: 75/1
Vanderbilt: 100/1

INDEPENDENT/NON-BCS

Notre Dame: 22/1
Boise State: 50/1
BYU: 100/1

The field is listed at 50/1. Comments:

-- Not that it's a surprise given that it's won five (and in four days, six) straight BCS titles, but still interesting to see the level of love for the SEC: four of the top six teams, half the 14-team conference at 35/1 or better, and only three teams (Ole Miss, Kentucky and Tennessee) are consigned to the field. (Incidentally, when was the last time Vegas offered national championship odds on Vanderbilt but not Tennessee? We're going on a limb to say "never.")

-- Is Michigan really going to enter 2012 as the Big Ten favorite -- Denard Robinson will be back, but there's major losses on both lines -- or is their status here just a result of the large numbers of Wolverine fans willing to bet on their favorite team? We're guessing the latter; of all the teams listed at 20/1 or better, they're the team we'd give the longest shot.

-- Other teams that might be overvalued: Alabama, who lose major chunks of their defense and offensive line; Notre Dame, because their schedule isn't getting any easier; and even at 75/1, Arizona State, because c'mon.

-- On the other hand, who might be undervalued? West Virginia should be even more explosive in year 2 of the Dana Holgorsen era, and the defense is young; TCU, who'll have the schedule strength to break into the BCS title game if they go undefeated again; and Virginia Tech, still with Logan Thomas at the controls and a cushy ACC slate.
