Is it just me or are they wayyyy off?
Depends on how they rate OSU's guys
I swear on their team rankings it had Bama 10th. Did I see that wrong?
I mean it is Scout so....yes
Looks like they have the best rankings out this year.
247 > Rivals > Scout > ESPN IMO.
Scout and Rivals are a tossup.
I mean they still have Shane Morris as the 3rd best QB. They have to be the best in the business.
I don't even look at scouts rankings anymore
ESPN deserves more credit than they get, they hand out way too many 4 stars though
Still I usually like the 150 enough to say its not that bad at all

fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Honestly it looks like Scout is trying to make sure they don't lose the Michigan fans they have over there at GoBlueWolverine. It's gotta be one of their biggest sites for sure.
I love Michigan's class, and no doubt it's one of the top 5 in the country, but to have them as the overwhelming #1 is absolutely ridiculous.
FSU and Miami are still a solid size and UF is huge on scout still
Miami and UF were incredibly large a few years ago
I never even look at Scout rankings so when it popped up on the screen I was like what??!
Eh, they all have their biases and their strengths and weaknesses. Which is why you shouldn't take any one as gospel but look at them all and sort of average them.
Bama never does well in scouts' rankings.
Their rankings are worthless and should he removed from the composite.
Yeh I have no idea what are the big sites on there, I didn't ever stray from GBW when I was there (just awful board).
Either way the boards looked like crap, and the Michigan board was a sorry bunch of sunshine blowers who roasted anyone who even dared to be realistic.
Didn't a few of Rivals main recruiting guys move from Rivals to 247? I thought Rivals was pretty picked dry, but I might have just been overstating that in my head.
ESPN has gotten better recently, that's my IMO at least.
Chad Simmons looks like he has gained 200 pounds lol
Cry me a river
Hmm if only a site would come up with a composite rating that did that... Maybe one day
I was hard core Scout for a good 6 years I think
I trolled the entire network pretty much
This site needs to cut scout out of it imo
Just do Rivals and ESPN along with theirs
With the commitment of Foster, Bama now has the 8th ranked recruiting class...
Which still blows my mind.
Nobody really cared about who ran the sites, it was just a lot of people who loved to have fun on the internet and enough nerds and trolls to have so much fun with
Im guessing its cause the network was so large with teams ( NFL too ) and early on they got a lot of people from when the internet was starting to get huge ( 1998-2000 or so is when they hit the scene I think )
They were one of the first recruiting services around online, and IIRC a few years before Rivals
To this day the Miami OT board called " The Lounge " was some of the greatest internet reading in history
I can't even explain how god damn funny that board was, nothing I have ever seen touches it. Lots of them are on CaneInsight now... but not all for that particular board was anything but a Canes site ( posters from all over made it over there cause of its reputation for delivering the lulz )
DBC obviously being one of the major parts of those years for this was the place that drilled him the most
Everyday almost they would just murder him and he never figured out that people were messing with him ( thus the public address announcement via youtube he gave ) and countless threads that were just lol funny for 40 pages or so ( every page being hilarious )
Since we added Reuben Foster we're up to 8 on Scout!!!! Maybe if he sign 4 more 5 stars our class will be up there with ND.
Notice Bama has 11 of the top 100 players according to Scout, I don't think anyone else has more than 5, yet Bama's class ranks #8.
We have 10 top 100 but are behind Nebraska who has 0.
