Nice Move

NSD Live Blog

The blog reads from bottom to top. So get caught up by seeing what has been going on since I got here this morning.

1:48 p.m.

This is going to be my last post for a bit, gotta go crank out my list of the schools with the hottest girls. So let’s see where the teams rank according to 247sports.

1. Alabama
2. Florida State
3. LSU
4. Ohio State
5. Ole Miss
6. Michigan
7. Georgia
8. Clemson
9. Texas
10. Florida

12:56 p.m.

Might start winding this thing down shortly. All the fun and excitement is pretty much over. Will update class rankings shortly.

12:32 p.m.

It still amazes me that ESPN is using this NASCAR guy on football coverage.

12:16 p.m.

This day should really be a holiday. You kids need today off to be drinking. Hell, I need this day off to be drinking.

12:07 p.m.

Shocker that a 5-star CB would go to LSU over Arkansas and Florida.

11:58 a.m.

NEED pics of the girls taking in the faxes. There used to be some hotties who worked Tennessee’s war room.

11:56 a.m.

Jim Harbaugh is wearing his best khakis in hopes that Rashan Gary signs with the maize and blue.

11:53 a.m.

There are a lot of salty Aggy media folk out there today.

Actually watching the Twitter war between Texas and A&M is entertaining.

11:32 a.m.

*Checks to see where SMU ranks*

*Bangs head on desk 100 times*

11:15 a.m.

Okay, there are like 6 recruits who are going D-1 from Manvel, TX. How much would it suck to play them this past year?

10:55 a.m.

Just a quick update for the current class rankings according to 247sports:

1. Ohio State
2. Alabama
3. Florida State
4. Ole Miss
5. LSU
6. Georgia
7. Michigan
8. Clemson
9. Florida
10. Texas

10:50 a.m.

I’d be a lot happier with Texas’ recruiting haul if I didn’t know they were Steve Holt’s favorite team. I almost hate myself for rooting for them.

10:45 a.m.

UAB is rocking the #1 class in the C-USA. That’s huge for a program that literally got boned by the school.

10:38 a.m.

There’s zero chance that people still fax their LOIs in right? I mean, this is 2016.

10:36 a.m.

Back when I was playing in high shcool, Pete Carroll once walked into our weight room to check out Emmanuel Moody. It was the one time everyone actually was not jacking around during workout.

10:35 a.m.

I actually like this kid. He says he wants to be like Antonio Brown. So he’s alright in my book.

10:32 a.m.

Where would Texas be if they had fired Charlie?

10:25 a.m.

ESPN needs more coverage of the lesser schools. Dan feels left out that nobody is talking about UCF.

10:10 a.m.

Kirby Smart looks like he’s ready for a night out at the Athens bars for dad’s weekend.

10:03 a.m.

It seems is having some technical issues. You know who doesn’t have technical issues? Me. Suck it, competitors.

10:02 a.m.

How many times will we hear about Jim Harbaugh’s sleepovers today? I’m setting the O/U at -4.5.

9:56 a.m.

Ohio State is still ranked as the number 2 class and I feel like I haven’t heard a peep about them all morning. What gives, Urban? Give us some excitement one time.

9:54 a.m.

The moral of the Dontavious Jackson commitment to FSU over Texas is this: if Tim Brewster wants you, then Tim Brewster will get you.

9:53 a.m.

So I guess Boston College’s coach Stev Addazio is still doing the whole “dudes” thing…

9:35 a.m.

Welp, Williams didn’t flip from Stanford to SMU. This pretty much sums up my reaction:

Wrong move, IMO. Kid is clearly choosing academics over championships with this pick.

9:22 a.m.

9:18 a.m.

Speaking of money, how about 4-star safety FDeontay Anderson committing to Ole Mi$$ after jumping out of a goddamn plane? Who does that? Kids are getting bold these days.

9:11 a.m.

Phone is back, and all my SMU kids are wondering why we aren’t getting everyone. The general consensus is we need to increase our recruiting budget. Where’s Sherwood Blount?

9:08 a.m.

I respect the hell out of Ben Davis for rocking the Bear Bryant hat to make his selection.

8:45 a.m.

What the hell is Charlie Strong doing at Texas? Picks up Brandon Jones, flips Erick Fowler from LSU. Are they about to snag another top 10 class?

8:28 a.m.

How about Kirby Smart pulling in three 5-stars so far? The most for UGA since 2001. He’s even stealing them from Bama. Nicky can’t be too pleased about that.

8:11 a.m.

National Signing Day is full of college kids and grown men stalking 18-year-old kids on where they will spend their life for the next 3-5 years. Sounds like the perfect script for Chris Hansen.

8:08 a.m.

I came in to find out that Duke was already done with Signing Day before I even woke up at 7:30…

8:05 a.m.

Not a great start of the day for me. My iPhone is dead. At least I got this sharp Blackberry to use.

8:00 a.m.

Hot start to the greatest morning in college football recruiting as I rolled in here early wearing as much SMU gear as possible so everyone knows that we run this state. In fact, I got a good feeling about SMU’s chances, just look at the recruiting job I did for 3-star DT Mike Williams.

Guy even favorited it so you know he’s going to the Hilltop.

A few guys have already announced on national TV where they are going. Here are those guys (I’m using the star rating from 247sports btw since it’s a composite ranking from other sites):

3-star DT Marcell Southell: Texas
3-star DT Chris Daniels: Texas
4-star DT Stephon Taylor: South Carolina
4-star S Nigel Warrior: Tennesee
4-star CB Trayvon Mullen: Clemson

Should be a great day of shit talking around the country. Bring it on. I’ll be answering your questions in from the comments section as well.
