I am not saying we are beating you, scout.com says we are beating you, we're #6 you're #10.<quoted text>I bring up the rankings because you keep saying you are beating us. To have at least one commit in every postition that is better ranked then your highest recruit in that position tells me that the University of Southern California remains the ultimate destination for an athletes California experience. Think about the reality of your hype this way:
USC - A BOWL 1/2 FULL OF THE FINEST SWISS DARK CHOCOLATE
UCLA - A BOWL FILLED UP WITH MASS PRODUCED, MEDIOCRE, DIME STORE M&MS
Furthermore, if your 5-stars were worth a crap, you would win national championships, and not lose 5 of your last 6 games.
So, yeah, you get more 5-stars than any other program...congratulations!!! but if your program sucks, then there can only be 1 of 3 reasons:
1. these 5-star players suck in reality, which in a previous post where I noted each 5-star since 2003 - 18 of them were complete busts.
2. maybe these 5-star players are really good and worthy of their status, but the coaching sucks!
3. maybe these 5-star players are all that, but something tragic happens after they enroll, could be:
A. the campus' surroundings are a distraction to them, too much temptation.
B. since they get so many out-of-state players, they get home sick and it affects their performances.
So yeah, keep winning the national battles of 5-star players that amounts to squat in the end...why? because these 5-star players are NOT the players you truly needed.
I liken the 5-star recruiting mentality of USC's of someone that goes after hott chicks, only to find out they are all whore$ and end up with broken hearts in the end...no thank you, I'll stick with my 4-star and 3-stars that perform better, and are loyal, not loose sluts, that will break my hear.
Have a nice day, hy hear?:)
