Props to Whit and the staff for some nice work
That is impressive, as a farm team for the NFL.
Lets see that translated into National Championships. Certainly helps recruiting and retaining said recruits.
Careful Invictus, according to the Salt Lake tribune, the NCAA record books, thanks to Anderson-Hester computer rankings, were changed last year. Utah is now listed along side Florida as winning a Natty in 2008. Since that shit got awarded in 2018, you know T will be claiming the translation you speak of, has already begun.
Looks like Big T’s cherry picking ass has some explaining to do
Nope, looks like you have some explaining to do. Your chart was exposed in the other thread. Contract value vs composite rating has little to do with talent development and everything to do with composite rating and draft placement. By definition more 4* and 5* recruits will get drafted and realize high value contracts.
Another example of Utah's proven ability to identify and develop players:
tOSU has had 16 DBs drafted by the NFL this decade, 7 of whom were 4* or 5* recruits, 9 of whom were 3* or under. In contrast, Utah has had 10 DBs drafted by the NFL, one of whom was a 4* recruit, 9 of whom were 3* or under. Once again, Utah is doing more with less.
Hey T, the graph clearly shows tOSU Buckeyes have the edge in 4*&5* guys @ 7:1, while both teams have had 9- 3* and under guys. To say Utah has done more with less would imply they are contending for natties year in year out, like the Buckeyes do. I must be missing something as I simply haven’t seen the Utes even win the PAC.
Actually support my refute of your other chart which you posted claiming I was cherry picking.
The “Utah is doing more with less” statement is where you loose me T.
The Buckeyes have won their conference in recent years, the Utes have not. The Buckeyes have been to the playoffs a couple times in recent years, the Utes have not. The Buckeyes have won a Natty in recent years, the Utes have not. I do not recall the Utes being ranked above the Buckeyes in recent years. How the hell is that “doing more”?
If we are going by stars, I will concur they have a little less talent. I will concur that they are doing a good job at being competitive and developing talent, but there is no way you can convince me they are “doing more”. Neither rankings or results support your statement.
