I followed the recruiting season quite closely this year and I must say that I am pleased with what Marshall came up with. However, there are 14 recruits that they could've had but passed on and all 14 are 4 star recruits which would've propelled them to the upper level of college football recruiting for the first time since the 90's when the got Moss, Pennington, Kresser and Leftwich. Here are the 14 recruits they passed on.

WR Derrick Griffin Rosenberg, Texas Terry 6'6" 215 4.6 4 stars 6.0 3 list

DB Priest Willis Tempe, Arizona Marcos De Niza 6'2" 185 4.4 4 stars 6.0 6 list

ATH Cornelius Elder Nashville, Tennessee Ensworth 5'11" 170 4.5 4 stars 5.9 7 list

LB James Hearns Tallahassee, Florida Lincoln 6'3" 230 4.6 4 stars 5.8 7 list

Marshall recruits beware, they tell you and your familiy what you want to hear them ignore you unless you're a superstar! It's a joke and Bill Legg is the worst. Coach Rippon finally got booted to the curb, but not before he helped degrade and alienate some decent local kids. They want to be a big time football program, but as long as they keep the current personal they will be a mediocre program at best !

It's not slanderous, it's true and happened to my son. Get real, I know exactly what I'm talking about. Marshall recruits should beware, there is trouble inside the program. Too many coaches leaving.... Since you are apparently a football expert and sees the quality recruits the Herd could have had, I'm sure you know this already. I only commented on matters that were truth, not fiction. The Herd staff needs work on their PR skills!

If i didnt know better i'd think the entire university has a curse on it.Every sport team has a losing record and usually does even when they have a virtually entire basketball team back that was expected to be among the best.I know it sounds ludicrous but perhaps this is Gods way of showing his displeasure with all this acceptence of false gods, pc lies,etc.You notice the last time they were successful was when they were lead by christians Pennington,Leftwich and Pruett.I realize all universities are like this but Marshall is sick with it. They should have remained the big fish in the little pond 1AA. Some of these Marshall fans leave me shaking my head.If they ever get lucky enough to win a conference USA title then they will be screaming about wanting to join the SEC. LOL

If you hate Marshall so much and your kid is miserable there then why doesnt he get released from his L.O.I.??? Doc and the coaches doesn't want a kid there that doesn't want to wearing the Kelly Green. Prime example is Travon Van, the kids mom wants him home, he went to Doc and now hes at Montana. Its not like he is being made to stay or are you one of these ignorant parents throwing a hissy because your kid went to Marshall instead of the school YOU WANTED HIM TO GO TO and making trash up about the coaches and school??? I grew up in the shadows of Marshall's campus, its one of the best academic schools in the country. Academically, it rates up with schools like Michigan and far passes schools like that over-rated junior college in Columbus that calls the Big 10 Conference its home. You should be thankful that your son got a scholarship period because there are over 1000-2000 kids who look for a scholarship who DONT GET ONE every year. So how about you just shut your ignorant inbred texas mouth if your kids gutting it out at Marshall or has already left.

Lol, Doc and I are friends and he and my son have been friends for years. He's received ZERO academic dollars from athletics, only academics and in face turned down a great opportunity elsewhere from a much finer academic institution to play D1 football. He spent day after day in practice telling the "full ride" players the plays because they Incapable of remembering the play book. He's a highly intelligent kid who wanted a chance at a hometown school, and Doc asked him to walk on. Once there, he busted his tail and made the team yet the "full ride" kids still get the nod from the I'll equipped coaches. Face it, the Herd is mediocre at best and wishing it were different does not make it so. As for Mr. Van, he is better off where he went. The others who defected will be as well. FYI, he has asked for release, and is still buddies with Doc. Bet Doc wishes he wasn't on a sinking ship...

Keep telling yourself that. Lol, if Marshall coaches were worth a damn, they would have a few more in the W column and coaches would not defect. People are truly so ignorant about how college football, the business , really works!

I'm still a Herd fan, because Doc is a good man, the others are turds...

As for the boy, he's plenty good enough. Just ask Doc
