Recruiting class envy?

I'm surprised I didn't learn about that from some of my CU PoliSci profs, although to be fair, they were probably soccer fans. How about if DiStefano and various other admins give up their free donuts, lunches, dinners, adult beverages, and vacations, er work trips, to sponsor a few other 3-star guys so we have even more scholarships to offer.

Surely everyone could see this coming. We soil ourselves if we don't have early commitments, then when we start getting more early commitments we bitch about the star rankings of those guys. So the staff continues to try to recruit better players right up to singing day like everyone wants, and then they take crap for over signing, misassesing players, etc. Hey, as far as we know, 4-5 of our commitments have been told to hang on to the phone numbers of those coaches from Chattanooga, Texas St., Middle Tennessee St., CSU, etc. in case 4-stars start raining down on us right at the end.

We need a recruiting manifesto. "We demand early commitments, 3-5 stars only, do not run off any previous 0-2 star players, do not renege on any scholarship offers, sign the top CO players every year, get 100% of them past admissions, and throw in some free hotdogs for the proletariat at the spring game."

Written in jest. Every once-in-a-while it's therapeutic to riff some Karl to justify $ spent on those credits. A swift kick in the Netbuff nads in response is fully expected.
