That's right. Averaging all the recruiting sites from 2009 (redshirt seniors) to 2013 (true freshmen), Mississippi State has actually out-recruited Oklahoma State (but what is probably more of a dead heat). In addition, even in Rivals, always our worst talent evaluators, we're in a dead heat. (I know that including the 2009 class helps State more than it helps OSU.)

I say this simply to point out that talent is not at issue here. We're not going up against Alabama; we're going up against our talent equals. If we get run off the field, recruiting rankings suggest that the problem is the guy on the headsets - not the players on the field.

Well Gundy is pretty :lanekiffin: good with his headset.

Most of our fans are severely underestimating OSU.

The question we don't know is how many stars does Gundy add to his recruits? If he adds three then we are screwed.

No, I just want to preemptively stop any allegations that OK State just has much better talent than us

The rules are different in the Southwest.  Two stars addition only.

Thats good news. And rare considering it typically takes 4 years for a WR prospect to develop into a productive player in Merlin's system.

OK State's starting LT went down with an ACL yesterday.  Makes Denico/CJones day a little easier.

FIRE EVERYONE

Looks like they will be weak there.  Article suggest that they will slide a starter(11 games at Lt) over.

gundy hasn't learned that he should leak to the media that Alabama, Georgia, florida and Lsu have all taken looks at a certain 5 or 6 of his recruits. the media will add another star to each one of them before midnight.

Oh the Bama bump... It makes sense, if saben wants them, they've got something special.
