Yep, and those idiots can't see or understand what they are doing is making us look to be better at developing players, bc we are beating their darling teams on the field where it counts the most, and they can't adjust that!!!

It was really swell of them to say Clemson may have best #3 recruiting class ever. Gee, thanks guys!

It’s fun watching reality unfold with their misconceptions.

some of the others have moved up in individual rankings, so yeah, they drop two spots. If I had enough of it left, I'd be pulling my hair out over this dumb shite.

Lol out loud.

Yeah you’re right. Its terrible for college sports that we are able to watch college football from 9 am until 2am every Saturday. It’s terrible for college sports to be able to watch college basketball all season long. It’s terrible for college sports to be able to watch college baseball all season long. It’s so bad for college sports that we are able to view almost any sporting event. I wish espn would just close up shop and stop letting us view our favorite teams play their sports. Worst thing ever!!!

I think he’s talking about there bias to the likes of the SEC, LeBron, Bryce Harper.... and so on. The darlings of ESPN instead of talking about all of sport and not just who they want or there agenda.

Yeah it sure does suck to have twice as many CFB games

ESEC-PN will degrade players that we have committed so that they can give their darlings the #1 recruiting class. But that's OK, it's OK bc when we win more with our guys, and bc ESEC-PN dropped their value, it will definitely appear that Dabo and staff are doing a much better job at developing player bc we are taking less valued players in ESEC-PN opinion/rankings, and beating the crap out of their darlings. I'll take that accomplishment anyday bc, the best players will want to go where they are being better developed!!!

Not surprised....maybe Burch and Flowe will have something to say about that at the end. ;)

ESPN is all over the place here. How many guys do they have evaluating high school talent? One guy?
I think 247 should remove ESPN's rankings from their composite because so much of this is garbage once you get beyond some of the obvious top 5-10 guys.

Clemson recruits:
Bresee and Murphy indeed both belong in the top 5
Mitchell Mayes at 14? That is nuts! I'm glad they think so highly of the guy but he's not a 5-star. Hope I'm wrong.
Bowman at 19 and Capehart at 27 is about right.
Fred Davis at 45 and DJ at 48 is crazy low for both guys IMO. Speechless. DJ should be at least top 15 and Davis top 25.
They are missing it on Walker Parks. He's a borderline 5-star.

Clemson prospects:
Burch at 5 and Flowe at 9 are fine.

Other guys:
Julian Fleming at #1 is the worst thing about the list. Judging his videos vs other guys I don't think he's even top 10.
Putting Darnell Washington above Arik Gilbert seems crazy. Gilbert is a living, breathing mismatch for any defensive player. He has great hands and knows how to use his body. LeBron in pads. A nightmare. Maybe should be #1.
Demond Demas is a local Houston boy going to A&M that is going to be an absolute stud receiver in college. Listing him at 38 is just ignorant.

But that is how they fix the value numbers to to give the #1 class to who ever they want to have it, and nobody has to be a genius to see how they do it!!!

Why is is crazy that Mitchell Mayes is at 14? He’s the 916th best player according to 247 (not composite). He’s 121 on rivals. Espn has him ranked the highest. And he is a 5 star on espns rankings.

I will make one correction: Mitchell Mayes at 14 is the craziest thing about ESPN's rankings. Nothing against him, but he's probably the weakest of our O-lineman for 2020.

I betcha anything this list is the work of one person, maybe two. The only reason anybody cares about it is the label "ESPN" is attached.


Yeah they gutted their CFB staff so i really doubt they

are keeping many recruiting scouts and analysts on payroll.

Ok I gotcha. I read it like you were saying he’s not high enough. My bad. I agree with you. And yes, because it’s espn, tnetters blow their wads over loving to hate espn for reasons they just make up.

Lol at having Fleming and Desmond Evans as 1 and 2. Flemming isn't even top 10 material and Evans isn't close to a five star.

We all know what has happened at UGA with their ESecPN driven #1 recruiting classes. For me, I'll watch the other recruiting ratings.

Georgia number 1 every year and they got beat at home by the coots. As long as Dabo and the boy's picking them I'm good.

I know that it does not really matter but it does irritate me when they use recruiting in their rankings for the season like s&p+ and I believe FPI. It just gives an impression that they are doing all they can to prop up the SEC and the B1G. They start out the season higher and then have a stronger schedule according to their computer model. It seems to me like everybody else has to be a little better because they are playing against a stacked deck.


What does this have to do with the NBA ??

Is Lebron doing the rankings now ??

then it is truly a testament to our coaches that we have been able to compete and win two of the last three Nattys with the obviously inferior talent that came before them. LOL.

Just ESecPN being ESecPN, nothing to see here


Posted: Oct 16, 2019 8:44 AM
 

While I do think that these re-rankings are a joke, none of it matters. Dabo has the guys committed that HE wants, and that means they're better than everyone else. We're the best school in the country at player development, hands down. Just go look at the SI articles where they re-rank each recruiting class four years later.

Funny how we always seem to do so much more with so much less. Kinda makes one wonder how smart the pundits are.

There is a reason for that.

ESPN is biased as Paul fineblah. And just like last year they overlooking a team that is very disciplined and not worried about getting out there and showing off but rather win the game build depth and crank it up when it's time. Alabama ain't played nobody and is yet to be exposed and they will be exposed. Clemson is still better than Alabama ecspecially on defense and come the end of the season they will again be "flabbergasted"
