lol I think you just proved my point. Your competition for three recruits against top powers against our entire recruiting class being recruited by those schools. We have to stack our team top to bottom with top talent to compete. Top talent at the level of top 5 programs. Penn State would be lucky to have 2 players the caliber of what Alabama, Florida, and the rest of the top 8 teams in the SEC recruit.
I can't name a single player that could start for Tennessee on Penn State's roster with the exception of a linebacker or two. I don't give a crap about the record of State's team btw because your schedule is nothing like what we have gone up against.
Why do you even care?
Butch Jones. Who???
Was originally just a slight irritation. Didn't expect all the SEC homeboys to start defending Tennessee. Thought this would be an obvious observation.
Your entire recruiting class? I went halfway down the list, picked two guys and surprise, both only had one other SEC offer (Mississippi State). Yeah, I guess Bama is going after your entire recruiting class, eh? Right.
Nice. Don't really care what you think of PSU. We don't have a lot of top talent, but we do have a number of players who would certainly start for UT.
I don't have a problem with State. Just thought it was odd that you were picking on us and had to defend my team. Like you would
I understand your point completely.
I will usually just label an offer from a BCS-level school as "major" or "BCS level" and the others "FBS" or "Division I"
I am not a fan of calling school offers "elite".

seriously? you didnt expect the SEC fans to defend a struggling former powerhouse team? ha
I don't have a problem specifically with Tennessee either. The carpet bomb technique has always bothered me, and you guys aren't the only ones who do it. Just noticed it being mentioned in an article and it bothered me.
Certainly, I don't begrudge a fan from defending their team. Appreciate the debate, even if it was heated.
In my opinion fan bases and facilities are what make programs big. With all of the resent failure at Tennessee, if their record is 8-0 in 2013, there will be sell outs, tickets going for 10 times the face value, the Vols will be a top 5 team, and the media would have amnesia about their recent pass. Tenn is a big program.
