Butler had two guys that play in the NBA.
Point is, the talent is BEYOND abundant.
You're wrong. Show me the number of people that lived in the United states in the 70's, 80's, 90's and today. There are more people.
Here's another reason you guys are forgetting...
How many football camps were there in the 80s??? LOL!! How about 7 0n 7? How about elite camps? How about qb camps? How about the training in pop warner? How about football clinics for coaches?
LMAO!! If you guys don't think there's 1,000s of more players out there that can ball out, you guys are all drunk, stupid or from the south.
I'm talking from about the 70's on. That's actually when football was hitting on all cylinders as far as recruiting and the 80's was when there was an open door policy to recruiting black kids to white schools, out of state MAJOR recruiting, etc... You can't look at Army in the 20's and say that compares to today.
You want a list of the QB's in the NFL that didn't play at BIG TIME programs???
Peyton Manning is one. Tom brady is the other (doesn't count drafted in the 5th round and chip on shoulder)
Show me all the great texas and alabama qbs in the NFL. how about Ohio state, FSU and Florida???
LOL!! You think these guys aren't talented??? I guess Drew Brees and Aaron Rogers suck. They went to Purdue and Aaron started in a JC. Why wasn't Brees at Michigan or Texas and Rogers at USC???
how's carson palmer and Mark sanchez in the NFL? How about matt leinart? Where are these great qbs from Penn St, Oklahoma, Notre Dame??? (jury is still out on bradford)
btw, 4 of the top 10 rushers in the NFL went to shit schools. You want me to keep going with receivers, etc...
Please, wake up and smell the
this isn't one or two. It's 40% of the top 10 rushers. So when will you guys believe there's more talent out there??? When it's 90%??? LOL... cmon man, you guys are in denial.
It's the same thing when I said in 95 that the rest of the world is catching up to us in basketball. My friends said quote unquote, "as long as the NBA guys play, america will never lose." That's just stupid. You wanna see how many foreigners play in the league now? There's more better players. Back in my day, it was Detlef Schrempf and that was it! Now EVERY team has guys from around the world on it.
YOU HAVE TO HAVE A GREAT STAFF TO WIN, PERIOD. There's too many guys out there that can play now....
6 of the top 10 in receivers including 2 from georgia tech. Last NC was 90, 22 years ago with no big wins to date in a bowl past that. That's 60% of the top 10 receivers in the league are NOT from Texas, Alabama, Notre Dame, Penn State, Georgia, etc...
6 of the 8 qbs on the pro bowl roster DID NOT go to a big time program. Only Tom Brady and Cam Newton are the exceptions.
How good is RGIII? What about Luck? Not exactly traditional powerhouses in football, but they now beat teams like USC and Oklahoma on a consistent basis.
Um no dude, actually that's the reason they put in the schollys limit isn't it? I have no idea where you are from but I would imagine its a place where "more better" is used alot, and even we make fun of that here I the south...thanks for playing...quit trying to reinvent the wheel, and 20 years ago a 7-5 team probably isn't going to a bowl game. Your just wrong or everyone on this board is retarded except for you
Didn't elway go to that school 20 yrs ago??? Tell me this BrainPower, Phil sims, terry Bradshaw, John stalworth, Howie long, Jerry rice, Steve McNair, deacon jones, warren moon, John riggins, Brett Favre many more you can list...I think riggins is the only one that went to BCS school...talent has always been at small schools, now with the schollys limits you can put decent peices around them...he'll BYU won the NC 30 years ago didn't they? That wasn't a power by any means
This is just another thread by a Cane fan trying to convince themselves they will be ok.
I think Gomez is in the middle of a seizure
You need players AND coaching.
If your coach isn't worth a bag of broken dicks (Jimbo Fisher, Gene Chitstick, Lame Kiffin, Mack Brown, etc) then all the recruits in the world won't make a turd.
But, if your players aren't worth a bag of broken dicks then you look like Wake Forest or someone.
You need both. I thought everyone already knew this.
