These players are obsessed with their ranking, they are going to camps just to improve that. It is an advantage, an unfair advantage, to be able to go in and say " we signed the number 1 recruiting class in the nation last year just look it up on 247."
    Most good coaches don't care what the players star rating is. That is unless you are called Alabama or Ohio State, even lower P5/ upper G5 schools care more about how the recruits play. It doesn't take that much to find a bunch of 2 and 3 stars without any D1 offers and then get them on to a D1 team. There is a reason that these recruits aren't getting attention- most probably they haven't been as good as thought, or parents spend a lot of money on camps getting their name out. NDSU certainly doesn't care about star ratings, look at Carson Wentz, Andrew Bonnet, and CJ Smith all on NFL rosters from the 2015 class, I think they were all unrated.

    Really? Austin Peay? They've won one football game in the last 4 years.

    It might be unethical not to give them some kind of advantage at this point.

Is it wrong for his contact/s at 247 to manufacture these rankings on his behalf in an obvious attempt to give him an advantage?
    It's completely unfair because it has resulted in so much on field success....

    As the dimwitted morons of AGS continue to bury their head in the sand, the fraud has reached one of the largest newspapers in tennessee.

    http://www.tennessean.com/story/spor...ball/97452922/

    They've even got Barton Simmons to legitimize it. This is a fraud. It's not real. They didn't go out and purposefully sign a bunch of 2 star players. Someone at 247 went in and put all their players in the database and gave them 2 star rankings ON SIGNING DAY so will Healy can post headlines and print t shirts about legitimately signing the number 1 class and he can use it to build his program. That is fradulent!!! It is a huge advantage.

    Why will healy is doing it is obvious. 247 had no excuse, they are making lots of money off of their rankings at least having integrity and not showing favoritism. For them to do this is wrong and they need to be held accountable.
    To want something requires absolutely nothing. To will something requires sacrifice. That is the vision I have for Mocs football. A group that will have a tireless will to compete. When they play that way national championships are to be expected. That's our goal.

    So after you threw down the gauntlet I checked a couple of their player ratings on 247 and rivals. I didn't bother with looking up all of them, but the two I checked were listed by both services as two star players. I don't think either service means much for rating 2 star players but I don't see any obvious collusion with 247.

    Cool. Even if Healy is doing that who cares? Why does it matter? Does it make you feel threatened by lil ole Austin Peay?

    Let 247 put 5 stars next to all his recruits and we'll still shut them out in October.
