Recruiting stuff

It is still a bit quite on the recruiting front. We know from Twitter that the coaches have been on the road, but there have not been many verbals. One recruit who is saying the right things about BC is Florida WR Javian Hawkins. He is undersized, but performing well at various camps and has a good connection with Brian White.

BC almost never recruits JUCO players, but there is some interest in Northeast Oklahoma's TE Jake Ross. He doesn't have any offers from Power 5s, but is gaining more and more attention.

Can't wait for what kind of stunt Dazo the Clown will pull if he signs the JUCO transfer from Oklahoma.

I suggest a viral video of him strutting around with someone off camera saying "DAY-UM Dazzio! Back at it again with the top shelf recruits!"

AD Jaramond, if you are reading this, please put us out of our misery soon.

The recruiting numbers have never been good. When the team as successful the coaches were able to develop the players over time. Dazzler himself is not a player development guy. That is why you see the University investing heavily into expensive, relatively well regarded assistants.

The biggest area of weakness, the offensive line, is still being ignored from a coaching perspective. Justin Frye as not developed a single lineman in his 4-5 years at Boston College. Seems like an easy fix . . . move Frye to TE coach or Special Teams and hire relatively well regarded o-line coach???

Dazzler is loyal to a fault. That is fine if it only impacts Dazzler. It isn't fine when I have to watch third rate football from the offense all fall.

Look for the special teams to cost us a game this season too. Losing Al is going to come back to haunt us.

Send the url with where you got those numbers.

Outliers. The original point still stands. Average 38. They were at their best(this generation) with the 38th ranked recruiting class(on average). That is player development. To dispute it is only revisionist history.

Look also at 2008. Their best college player Montel and their best pro player Quigley were 2 stars coming in.

Revisionist history(again for the reading comprehension impaired).

According to Scout, while BC was #1 in the Big East in 2004, they were #42 nationally. 2004 is a misleading year for the Big East since Miami and VT had already left. If BC was in the ACC at that point, they would have been #10, ahead of only Wake and Duke.

Scout did have them at #27 in 2003, but #55 in 2002, #58 in 2005, #44 in 2006, and #50 in 2007.

Rivals has the following: #43 in 2002, #24 in 2003, #24 in 2004, #49 in 2005, #37 in 2006, and #46 in 2007.

I will give you this. The mentality of the players coming in the last 3-4 years seems soft. I have not seen one player "go off" on the sidelines looking for better play or really "pop" someone and high five head butt they way football teams used to(maybe the secondary has). The Syracuse game last year and two years before where they bitch slapped us at home are perfect examples.

I don't know yet if it is generational - players have become "soft" overall or if it is who is being recruited by the Eagles.

Nope. I get it. He had 2 recruiting years you consider good.

Problem is you don't get it. Overall the recruiting rankings for BC(at it's most recent performance peak) have averaged 38(30-40% below the two cherry picked years you reference). So it was player development that lead to the success of the team between '02 and '07(08/09).

Obviously you have no idea what it takes to play football.

Yeah! Let's "high five" on the sidelines. Let's chest bump each other after every f'n play like someone who wants 15 minutes of fame.

You are absolutely the worst thing in sports. Someone who has never played the game but can tell others what they are doing wrong. Go back to your wife or girlfriend and ask her if it is OK that post on a blog.

Words escape what a putrid excuse for life that you are. Like KH - go ask your wife or girlfriend if it is ok to pretend you are a man. You could not last 10 seconds on a football field yet your rarified air of greatness makes you believe your option matters. Go jerk off and feel good about yoursekf

knucklehead said...

Max,
The team has zero enthusiasm on offense and special teams.

If there weren't people interested in the game, enthusiastic to play it and communicate about it you wouldn't have had the opportunity for a free education(which you obviously didn't take advantage of), free room, free board and more opportunities/connections than the people who are paying their own way.

Read what you post out loud if you want to hear rarified air of greatness.

You are a loser and a hypocrite.

I played for BC when the best part of you ran down your mothers leg.

Enthusiasm is a factor if the head coach. When you have a used car salesman as HC what do you expect. No one at BC has the balls to fire his ass today and move on. Daz is a cancer that needs to be eradicated.

Jury is waiting for the new AD. I am disappointed already he is not at BC currently and getting shit in line. I have little hope for the man. Go big or go home. There is nothing here that should be evaluated. HC of FB and ball should be fired immediately. Fuck the cost. If you want enthusiasm watch what an interim asst coach will do. Daz is a waste if time, money and resources.

You'll see what players you have and have not. BC is just wasting time and playing by a playbook that is 25 years out of time.

F them all. They deserve what they think they are.

Just remember that those numbers would be higher if we changed Matt Ryan to a 5* instead of what he was ranked as (3*). BJ Raji was ranked a 2* I believe. Luke Kuechly was a 3* who was really a 5*. Harold Landry is a 5*. Ron Brace (God rest his soul) was a 2* I believe and the same with Jamie Silvia 2* who was more like a 4*.
