OK, if you ever show up at any KU football related event let Wise, Lee, Armstrong, Adeniji, Sims, Dineen, Loneker, Ribordy, or some of the new guys like Baldwin, Charlot, and Defense know how crappy they are.

Oh, who am I kidding, you'll NEVER show up.

This snippy comment from you either was a very bad attempt at humor or shows complete ignorance of a lot of things by you.
Yes, humor attempt, but it still rings true somehow...we all hope you are as smart as you believe.

Dunno about how smart you think that I believe I am, but I do know that anyone with eyes or ears, or both and a brain can tell we've recruited some really talented players over the past couple of years. We've got several committed for the 2018 class too.

Kman, you're arguing with the Laura Bauer of the football board.

He doesn't have facts. He doesn't consider other viewpoints or explanations. He posts garbage just for attention.

Independance Day movie reference but anyway let's all hope we get something started this year after two years of recess by Beaty.

I want the team to win games, not intimidate me at football related events for being truthful!

In other words you want to be sold a bad bag of goods down the river like Chaz did.

Is that a Twin Peaks reference? Don't know any Bauers...

I have facts but they correspond with the win-loss record over the last two seasons and three off seasons. You don't agree that it should be better. Dream on.

It was a good thing we missed on Darta Lee. "Three Illinois football players were arrested on Wednesday on charges of home invasion and armed robbery after an alleged incident at a school dormitory.

Darta Lee, Zarrian Holcombe and Howard Watkins were all booked throughout Wednesday morning at Champaign County Jail, according to online records. Illinois coach Lovie Smith announced Wednesday that Darta Lee, Zarrian Holcombe and Howard Watkins have all been dismissed from the program. All three remain in jail on $150,000 bond, meaning they must pay $15,000 to make bail."

As of the 25th of May, 247 football recruiting team rankings for 2018 has shown a bit of slippage for the Jayhawks. Now currently ranked 27th still trending downward. If you recall, I said we would be highly successful if we maintained a position in the top 50. I was slammed for being realistic... "He doesn't have facts." and so on...

Since this is such a slow time of year for much real football news, let's look at the rankings right now.

According to Rivals here's how the Big 12 teams rank as of today.

School_Nat. Rank_#Recruits_Tot. Pts.
BU_____#11___13___998
OKSU___#13___12___968
UT_____#18____8___866
OU_____#22____7___806
KU_____#23____9___799
TCU____#29___7___545
ISU_____#31___9___540
WVU____#51___5___345
TTU____#59___4___255
ksu____#100___1___0

A few schools have added several new recruits over the past 4 weeks with Baylor adding 8 and OSU added 5. UT picked up their highest rated recruit over this time as well, but most teams added between 0 and 3 averagely rated(according to Rivals) recruits.

If you break it down by the average rating per recruit per school then you get a somewhat different ranking.

School_Big12Rank_Avg.Star_Avg.Points
OU_____#1____Mid 4 Star___115.1
UT_____#2____Low 4 Star___108.3
KU_____#3____High 3 Star___88.8
OSU____#4___Mid 3 Star___80.7
TCU____#5___Mid 3 Star___77.9
BU_____#6___Mid 3 Star___76.8
WVU____#7___Low 3 Star___69.0
TTU____#8___Low 3 Star___63.8
ISU____#9___Low 3 Star___60.0
ksu____#10___No Star____00.0

Obviously ksu's lone verbal hasn't been rated yet, but if I had to guess what his initial rating will be, I'd say he'll probably be rated a mid level 3 star which means he'd get 75 points from Rivals. That means they'd be roughly #7 in this list with their lone recruit, but also some schools, like KU for instance, has at least 1 recruit who hasn't been rated yet either. So, the list would surely shift some as Rivals continues to update their ratings system and give initial ratings to recruits.

Anyway you look at it though, I think KU is still looking to be in relatively good shape compared to the other D-1 schools and the other Big 12 schools right now. We've also made the top cut for a few higher rated recruits too. Hopefully we'll snag a couple of them also.

KU being the #2 recruiting class in the nation was fun and impressive, even if it was only for a few weeks. Not many D-1 schools can even claim that accomplishment in recruiting. Recruiting rankings can and do change on virtually a daily basis and I expect a lot more movement before it's all said and done.

Yes trending downward I suspect. Safety/RB from Free State, a local boy, left for Coffeyville CC. Not a good thing to lose the local support.
