    ... don't forget Cornell.

    We get it, you are not impressed, but you are consistent... your schtick is better served in the Cesspool.

    Over half of the 2016 class chose UConn over a P5 program.

    Go jump into a sewer.

    Impressive, that explains why it was ranked so high

    It's too bad this newest one didn't announce on ESPNU on signing day. Could have made a move for the Monmouth hat and then changed last second and grabbed the UConn one, crowd and announcers go crazy

    I shouldn't complain, we did get to a prestigious bowl last season

    I've been reading these types of posts since UCONN went 1A. UCONN has been very competitive recruiting the way it recruits. Anyone who thinks UCONN is going to beat out the likes of ND, Michigan, Clemson, etc. on any type of a regular basis lives in a fantasy world.

    In addition, the recruiting sites do NOT get all the information and they also get some of it wrong. A few years ago it seemed about 80% of the kids in skill positions were reported to run 4.4 or better. Think that was accurate?

    Complain is all you do. On every board on the boneyard.

    I would say it's pointing out facts rather than complaining

    Semantics

    I wonder if the new kid is a favor

    And it's worth noting that we have been 1A for less than 15 years. If JSM can't handle the fact that we were not able to reach that ND/Michigan, Clemson level in that time period, I have a suggestion for him: pick a new team to root for.

    C'mon, this is funny, unfortunately we now need the hats to be Monmouth, UConn and Springfield College

    The irony is that, after your post last year, we had one of our better classes using the measure that you apparently favor -- offers from P5 schools. Yet, 4 players into the current class, you're back to beat the same drum.

    The 2016 class was rated 101 by 247 and average recruit rating was below Western Mich, Fresno, GA Southern, Western KY, etc.

    The recruiting is bad, the product on the field is worse. Can't wait to watch the Shirreffs offense again. I shouldn't complain, 86 yards passing against that elite Marshall secondary was a good effort

    maybe you should follow Alabama since all you care about it the ratings given out by so called experts.

    Non-responsive. When defeated on one argument, move to another. You're predictable, and not very bright.

    While you are battering this putz ... you missed (our formerly trolling) Mike Farrell saying this: "“I expect the number of prep players from Connecticut to triple in the next 5-10 years.” That - btw - is an interesting take and one that will increase our YIELD of the higher rated. (*because Mike Farrell is lazy as all get out)

    That is good, but what does it matter if none go to Uconn.

    In 2014 UConn got none of the top 10 CT players, last year got 7-10, 1 3 star and 2 2 stars. So far in 2016 several have excluded UConn from their lists.

    The recruiting is awful. A lot of it is related to being in the AAC, but UConn is at the bottom of the AAC.m, which is doubly bad.

    Ok, how does this affect the awful UConn recruiting? Did you watch the St Pete Bowl? That was awful, especially the offensive performance.

    The true measure of recruiting & coaching is the overall on field performance (don't pick out one game again as your arguement), not the numbers assigned. Remember Dwayne Difton, the 4 star WR we hyad from FL? #39 ranked receiver in the class of 2009 and couldn't play for ? What about the lowly ranked first rounders we've produced. To assume that these ranking sites have the ability and time to watch and rank every player is ludicrous. Hence the instant bump when a recruit signs with Alabama. They figure they missed one and just bump them up a bit.
    Had the record not improved you might have an arguement. But being 6-7 is an improvement from the 2-10 the year before and our highest win total since FHCRE's last year. This year hopefully will see an increase on that number.
    How did you get 200 likes? Did you post that you were no longer posting on the BY?

    The recruiting is awful, worst it's been in the last 10 years, yes, they went 6-6 in the AAC and played in a prestigious bowl game last year against a loaded C-USA team.

    Anybody remember the DB Chesco. Used to disguise himself as something other than a BC hack. You don't suppose.....

    So, you think UConn football is in a good place? And the recruiting is strong?

    Yes, being objective makes people idiots on this board. Hopefully UConn can at least get the recruiting back to the level of Fresno and WKU.

    First of all- this is completely the wrong place to be discussing the status of UConn Football as an entity and their recruiting OVERALL. If you want to do that- feel free to create a thread or take it to the general 2017 recruiting thread.

    Second- This thread is about Tarik Black whos a top 150 player in the nation with offers from all over the country. If you want to comment on his recruitment or the linked articles go for it but stop trolling everyone here about how tragic it is that Tarik Black is interested in Alabama/Clemson/Notre Dame/whoever over UConn. We've never pulled these types for football and I hate to break it to you we more than likely never will. Stop populating this thread with pollution and take your ridiculous act elsewhere.

    Yes, the point is for UConn football to have any success it needs to land a good amount of top CT kids, and there aren't many. This is another top CT kid who won't go to UConn, like almost every other, which adds to why UConn recruiting and the team is not very good right now, although they did reach a prestigious bowl last year.

    honestly, this is ridiculous but it will improve if we get a B12 invite

    Otherwise stuff like this is the new normal

    "Fitton was entertaining offers from Army, Buffalo, Colgate, Fordham, Maine and William and Mary."
