Arguing that a proposition is true because belief in it has good consequences, or that it is false because belief in it has bad consequences is often an irrelevancy.

I picked up on what lowiq is saying a few years back, well maybe two. That’s why I try to average them out. I never thought Scout was as biased because; they seem to handle most of the good fan web sites, but for some dumb fen’ reason, I never associated them with Fox. I quess I'm as dumb as some of those southern fence posts; I some times refer some of the sec fans to.
I’ve been doing or keeping track of recruiting since way fen’ back;
When I could only get info from the local newspapers and we didn’t have all these so called gurus picking 4 & 5 stars. They were just called “Blue Chippers” if I recall and Tom Lemmings out of Chicago was probably my only good source from the late 80’s until the 90’s. Over the years I lost all my info, besides he only showed the top 10.
But once I got a computer, I was able to save some of this crap!!, But Lemmings was still the #1 man in my book as far as recruiting. I have his top 10 from 1993 thru 2002 there was another guy Bill Hodges, can’t remember where he was from but when I could get his I would average it out with Lemmings. Now since 2002, I only use Scout and Rivals and average them out as they post all the teams.
Here is what I liked about Lemming; besides his rank, he would always give his “Best Catch”. See if you remember some of these names!! I’m picking some random teams. Georgia only showed up twice in his top ten
#2: Scum Scott Loeffler?
#4: Notre Dame, Ron Powlus
#1: Tennessee , Peyton Manning
#2 Ohio State , Orlando Pace
#7: Penn State , Curtis Enis
#3: Florida State , Peter Warrick
#10: Scum: Charles Woodson
#1: Ohio State , Andy Katzenmoyer
#3: LSU, Cecil Collins (did he ever get out of prison?)
#10: Ohio State , Ken-Yon Rambo (what a fen’ dandy he was!! All show and no go!!)
#1: Scum, Drew Henson
#6: Georgia, Nate Hybi (don’t know, how was he lowiq?)
#1: Texas , Chris Simms (I can’t remember just where he finally ended up at?)
#2: Georgia, Reggie Brown (another one for ya, lowiq)
#4: Ohio State , Curtis Crosby
#1: Florida , Brock Berlin
#6: Ohio State , Sam Maldanado (Like Simms, where did he end up at)
2001: no body stuck out
2002: My last Tom Lemmings
#1: Texas , Vince Young
#2: Ohio State , Maurice Clarett (Wow!! we know about him, his good and bad!!)

Interesting indeed! Just who in the hell can we trust anymore when it comes to college football.
Probably one way someone could check is: To keep track on how a kid started before he was recruited and where he ended after he was recruited!!

I want to die peacefully in my sleep like Grandpa, not panic stricken and screaming like everyone else in the car.
