TCI Schedule


Feb 25, 2013, 12:34 PM

Who is this Robert MacRae with TCI?

He's been nailing his predictions lately.

First Montravius Adams is 90% Clemson bound and now he releases a completely bogus schedule that is going to be nowhere close to accurate.

I guess you get what you pay for with a free site.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

exactly


Feb 25, 2013, 12:38 PM

its free.

So what is your agenda for bashing it?

Just pay for the other sites that are wrong more often.

Yep I'm bashing the guy that says this is what the schedule is going to be and it ends up not being the case.

I have no agenda, but he's proven to be inaccurate quite a bit lately, so I'm not sure why you would put any stock in what his "sources" say at this point.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

I'm not putting any stock in it


Feb 25, 2013, 12:47 PM

I'm also not going on another website running him down.

Just don't see the point.

You are extremely incorrect on his recruiting info. I've followed his recruiting the last two years and he has been pretty dead on. As far as Adams, do you have any proof that he was NOT a strong Clemson lean before his visit that last weekend to Auburn? If you have no proof of that you are wrong.

to bash him, when he gives you news for free. The guy misses a couple times, yet is right 80% of the time, yet you want to find the one or two times he has been wrong and make it sound like he was wrong. Also to hear most talk, Adams was a lean to Clemson before going to Auburn

Re: TCI Schedule


Nov 1, 2020, 1:22 PM

I think you may have missed a couple days in there. Also, what we know about the schedule so far is compatible with what he said. AND... he said it was a likely schedule. not THE schedule. Don't mistake rumor reporting for fact reporting. Unless of course its a fact that there are rumors.

Re: why do these guys even bring it up?


Feb 25, 2013, 12:46 PM

For most I think the honest mistake is equating "reporting" with "facts". But in reality someone can "report" what someone close to a situations speculation is, especially with recruiting. This used to never happen because accuracy was the mark of a good reporter.

but with the Internet accuracy is not as important as hits. So writers are careful to phrase it in a way that creates conversation rather reporting the black and white. So these days you have to read carefully and maybe some people are just not used to that yet.

For others, they just need something to complain about so their life doesn't seem so bad.

Re: TCI Schedule


Feb 25, 2013, 12:47 PM [ in reply to Re: TCI Schedule ]

I guess but he was pretty adamant that what he released was the schedule.

Went so far as to post another message saying "folks this is a great schedule..."

He even posted another message linking his "schedule" this morning after Will Vandervort posted a message saying the schedule would be released this afternoon.

As you would imagine it has since been removed along with his imaginary schedule.

hopefully he'll learn his lesson since he will likely pay

Re: TCI Schedule


Feb 25, 2013, 12:39 PM

I think people mistakenly took that schedule as "We're pretty sure this is what the schedule will look like" instead of "Look at this schedule: we think it's dang near perfect, what do you think?"

When I first saw it I was like "Holy Crap," but b/c I was like "Holy Crap" I figured out that it was just someone playing around...

This morning, Robert was still saying everyone else was late


Feb 25, 2013, 12:45 PM

to the party, he reported the real schedule 8 days ago. Since he was wrong, he deleted his posts and started back tracking, like he always does. Just pointing out the facts and Robert's sheep will run to defend him.

Not the point.

I'll continue reading his free information but I've found it to be inaccurate recently and will take anything I read with a grain of salt.

This thread was intended as a response to people posting his "schedule" as if it is official when it was nowhere close to correct.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

"nowhere near correct"


Feb 25, 2013, 12:55 PM

What did he incorrectly report that his been confirmed thus far?

So far as I can see he only missed on the NC State game being thursday vs. saturday... "nowhere near"... right...

I guess we'll see at 3pm.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Re: "nowhere near correct"


Feb 25, 2013, 1:04 PM

Wake Forest mistakenly posted their schedule on the athletic website prior to the 3:00 announcement and fbschedules.com still has it up. Robert had us playing FSU on the 28th as I recall.

http://www.fbschedules.com/ncaa-13/acc/2013-wake-forest-demon-deacons-football-schedule.php

Also, Robert has gone so far as to say the "schedule has changed dramatically."

http://www.theclemsoninsider.com/mb/showthread.php?t=25489

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

He claimed this morning his report was right.


Feb 25, 2013, 1:06 PM [ in reply to "nowhere near correct" ]

Once stories(I think WF messed up and posted schedules early, since taken down)broke of the actual schedule broke, Robert deleted his claims that he was right 8 days ago.


Sure TCI does some good stuff.

But the fact that they can't help it when it is wrong and he blames others(we are all wrong sometimes,man up , admit it) or that they continue to push up to 20 ads(most site managers tell you 3's the limit),making the site the slowest on Net, are 2 things that his sheeep don't like you talking about.H3ll I wouldn't advise going to that site without using Adblock. (sorry B Meist , I know you asked me not mention that around here, but we also talked about those crapload of ads over on TCI).

This:

"I'll continue reading his free information but I've found it to be inaccurate recently and will take anything I read with a grain of salt."

...is the way you should process 99% of the info you read on any of these sites.

I think people were considering TCI a good source of information and posting what they saw there.

One thing is certain. We'll see the official, 100% accurate schedule at 3 PM today.

THis is probably correct....


Feb 25, 2013, 1:09 PM

and I can see how that could be annoying if they were presenting it as fact BECAUSE it came from TCI

We are all wrong at times. It's all in how you handle it.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Feb 25, 2013, 1:16 PM

the only time I really check in on TCI much is right at the end of recruiting season. And during the last two weeks leading up to signing day, I check it out a lot; several times a day.

IMO, he has extremely good info at that time. The rest of the time (this far out), it's very hard to put any stock in anything, anywhere. It's just reading material and speculation at this point.

2024 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpgbadge-ringofhonor-franc1968.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up


I know tci is a free site, but my issue with it Is how Robert acts like the god of Clemson info.


Feb 25, 2013, 1:16 PM

Post something 2 weeks ago and get it right he posts 15 times about how he is never wrong. "As we mentioned 2 months ago... Blah blah will blah blah"

Get it wrong either delete all evidence, claim it was just speculation even though you report it as fact if you were right. Or what irritates me the most is the "we know exactly what is happening but we can't report it for the good of Clemson"

I just don't care that much about it...and admittedly only follow during crunch time before NSD.

I do also see a lot of butt kissing from posters on there.

I have been very impressed with his recruiting info the last two years. I don't see how anybody can claim that he was "wrong" on anything he's said about these kids in these last couple of cycles even if he "missed" on a projection.

Adams is the only one I can remember where this might have happened these last two years, but Robert began reporting immediately that he started hearing conflicting info after Adams' visit to Auburn. He lowered the 90% prediction that weekend and even reported that Adams would be signing with Auburn before NSD.

His explanation on why he had Adams as 90% for Clemson before that weekend is very credible. He had been planning a special feature article with Adams following his signing.

2024 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpgbadge-ringofhonor-franc1968.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up


See I wouldn't even mind his misses if he handled


Feb 25, 2013, 1:33 PM

His misses and hits correctly.

He has a great record, I agree.

However, for as much butt kissing as goes over on their boards, Robert comes across as his own biggest butt kisser. He treats his correct predictions as indisputable evidence of his all knowingness on all things Clemson, and considers his misses predictions as irrelevant because they were just rumors.

2024 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

I'll have to take your word for it...


Feb 25, 2013, 1:45 PM

just don't follow it that much. What I have read, I feel he is clear to distinguish fact from opinion but like I've said I have a small sample.

I have seen him commend himself (brag seems a little strong) on being correct on something. But it has never bothered me.

What I can understand is that it could be irritating to have his "followers" coming on here and stating what he says as fact, but I still totally miss the point of bashing him on another site for what he may or may not have said.

He's offering his info for free...

which leads me to another question...how and why? He sure spends a lot of time doing it. Maybe I don't understand internet revenue, but I can't see how he is getting enough hits to make a great deal of money from advertising.
