You have no favorite boards.
"They call me crazy until they find out I'm right"
I don't know that the classes are so close, but we have to remind ourselves that this is a top 25 class (maybe top 20 depending on your preferred rankings/board). As strong as our momentum was at the start of last season, we're not a top 25 team. We are competing with the best programs in the country, not only in the SEC but in national recruiting. For us to get into the top 15 or top 10 recruiting on the national stage, we're going to have to back up the Brinks truck like Ole Miss or start competing for SEC championships and BCS Bowl wins. The Brinks truck is short-term thinking, I don't want to follow and support that kind of program and I don't want to go back to the end of Sherrill's era either where we didn't have the right kind of kids.
I like what Coach Mullen has done. He's done a great job of building for the long-term and we've moved ahead this year. If we can land TJ this is a very strong showing. We have to do more with less, that's our lot in life, and we should be proud of what our team and coaches have been able to do in finding kids that other programs miss. If Mullen continues on the path he's on, we'll see a divisional or league championship someday soon. I don't know about y'all, but I'm confident that we've moved forward as a program this year based on what I'm seeing today.
