It appears Muscoot has joined his other SEC brethren and pulled out the checkbook.

Doesn't commit to Defensive Line U. Especially when all starters will be on to the NFL next season

Not odd at all considering USCjr's depth chart.....

compared to ours. He will play quicker there as a starter guaranteed. He also liked USCkjr. I don't think he has any better NFL chances with us over them to be honest. He just has no chance at national titles like he would at Clemson.

And the NFL will draft a lot of players from championship teams. Sure they draft from some of the worst teams, but they look at the championship teams first!!!

There are at least 10 + other power 5 schools that will always be better then the coots that he could have chosen. The first thing that come to mind when I first saw this was $$$$ rules. If Mustcrap fails at usuc, he knows that it would be his last power 5 conference Head Coaching job that he would get for a very long time if ever. His not so favorable character has shown through over the years, and I personally believe that he would break all the rules to hold on to his position as a power 5 HC. His millions as a HC would fall to maybe a million as one of the top coordinators.Six to Eight out Ten cheaters will at some time slip up after they get comfortable with what they are doing to cheat, and they get caught, and I wouldn't be shocked if Mustcrap's name pops up as a cheater within the next 2 or 3 years. Before Dabo's success at Clemson, 5 star kids that their fathers played for Clemson didn't chose Clemson when we were average at best. And 5 star kids that they and their parents are fans of the coots don't chose the coots either unless there are incentives to hard to turn away from. Most, the majority of 5 star kids out of HS wants the best after HS to ensure their success and future in the NFL go and play at the best schools in their sport. Then there are a small percentage of those that wants a taste of the wealth before the NFL, and will take the chance of playing for non championship winning schools to have some of the nicer things that life has to offer now, before they go pro!!! Is this what is happening with the coots, I don't know and I can't prove differently, but my suspicions are high concerning the coots with bringing in high 4 and 5 star talent that won't sniff a championship during their career as a coot with a HC that has never won anything as a HC, not even with Florida where some of the best talent in the country are in Florida!!! If Mustcrap is building his coot team the honest up and up way, then good for him and I applaud him.But with all he stands to lose at this time in his Head Coaching career, I am suspicious of his recruiting tactics....

Dabo went through the same process, getting top recruits to buy in. Very similar to the ##### stating the same about us. Both know how to recruit. Whether we like it or not, USC went out and put together a staff that works. Very much like Dabo did.

Most NFL hungry kids would rather start for an average team than never get in for a winner. That's a no brainer.

Fire Dabo ?.. HaHa.. Pickens saw two five star ends as freshman in front of him.. He is simply going to USC to play right away.. As I was explaining to my friend at work..this recruiting cycle is more about getting depth than focusing getting top players.. They need to replace 20 seniors and 5 ± transfers.


Good luck

I guess they're starting to cycle in.

If they get enough of these kinda players (talented players but intimidated by our depth chart) they might start losing by only two or three tds to us.

Lets admit, it is more common these days for these kids wanting to start right away, vs. experienced players coming back (like we have) instead of an early departure for the NFL. However, whatever Lumpy is selling, these kids are buying it.

At the risk of sounding slanderous, I hate to say I had already judged the book by the cover. Only thing that hairdo does is say "me, me, me". Not one that appeared to fit the Clemson mold.

Not used to seeing that headline, but it’s probably for the best. Anyone who would choose SCaR in general shows a lack of good decision making skills, low moral character, and more likely than not a criminal record. Go Tigers!!!

Good for the yard birds. This will be the only win they get over us for at least 4 more years. Recruit wise, We can't get them all when we already got them all.

Re: TNET: 5-star DE chooses Gamecocks over Tigers

He is at an age that he probably developed a preference for schools during the Spurrier era. In 10, hopefully, we will still be reaping the benefits of our current success. I don't like the choice, but would guess that it stems from choosing the school that he grew up liking.


I hear our coaches looked at him like Huggins


Posted: May 26, 2018 8:48 AM
 

and Wynn. They think he’ll out grow DE and be a more natural fit at DT. He wanted to play DE and did like the Clemson coaches take on him. So he’s going to the school that’s going to give him what he wants.
It’s not much different than Edwards and Ortre Smith.

"They just got XT, KJ Henry, Mascoll from last years......you'll play from day 1 here" - Muscoot. Simple case of them benefiting from our stellar recruiting just like how they got the wrs we were stacked at.

I know you guys hate to admit it but Muschamp is building a team here the same way Dabo built your, through recruiting. Once you land the first blue chipper others start to pay close attention. Hillinski, who will end up as one of the best QB's in the country, and now Pickens has players like Crouch and (long shot) Steele giving us real consideration.

I've said it before here but IMO the rivalry is much better when both teams are good. Muschamp is building something here and it won't be long before we will be competing for the SEC and state championship.


Recruiting is one thing. Still have to coach 'em.***

You know that the defense will be well coached. We all know that the offense is in wait and see what McClendon and Werner can do. Personally I was unsure of the McClendon promotion to play caller until Muschamp hired Dan Werner as QB coach and mentor for McClendon.

Dude Dabo was getting more than just 1 5*. Its going to take more than that. Go back and check. And we got very high rated 4* to go with the 5*. One 5* does not compare with what Dabo built. Let me know when Chump brings in a baller with the impact of a Sammy Watkins.

Re: TNET: 5-star DE chooses Gamecocks over Tigers

They get 1 5* player in how long? and you think that's enough to admit they are catching up LMAO...Clemson has been getting 5-7 top 100 players every year for the past 6 years. That's the dif between the two schools. We're use to it and y'all bust a nut when you get one! And act like they are on our level. That one you get could be a bust for all you know, its not like Muschump has a great track record of getting the best out of those so-called great recruits he's had in his career. Go sit down somewhere with your hopeful over excited for nothing a$$. When he does this year after year and gets past an Outback bowl....then talk like you got alil bit of sense.


I'm going to say this here and it may not sound like


Posted: May 29, 2018 1:41 PM
 

i'm making much sense, but your team will beat Clemson again in football long before they even win the division in your conference... and don't put your life on hold waiting on that win over Clemson... I see three more with TLaw, and then at least 3 more with Taisun... that's a dime easily, y'all will rarely out-recruit Clemson or Georgia, and if McIllwain is worth his salt, you won't out recruit Florida either, so the wins are going to be hard to come by to beat us or your conference division mates...
