        Only the Beav’s got a lower pac12 grade (C-)

        It appears they didn’t take into account  the additions this morning…but this is what the national preception will be…

        Cool, ESPN is garbage, FYI.

          Where does the History Channel have us ranked?

        My experience with ESPN analysis is that it is shallow…quick simple spreadsheet exercises of comparing rankings versus perhaps the win/ loss of the season.  For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t even look at the small size of our departing senior class.

          My thoughts exactly. More than likely they looked at the over all score which doesn’t take into account class size, instead of average star ranking. Utah is also different considering we have returned missionaries come home every year and we rely on transfers. With the new transfer portal, I can see schools like Utah, using that to fill a good number of scholarships every year.

        Not sure why you rely so heavily on espn for recruiting analysis when there is 247 available which is much better for recruiting. Based off of average recruit ranking, Utah is 6th in the pac 12.

          I agree, ESPN is for the masses. although most of the recruiting content is behind a paywall… so I can’t personally speak to that.

        I agree with you that perception is important (even if not the whole story). Frankly, I do not understand why the recruiting rankings put so much stock in the number of players signed versus the average star ranking. Seems like a faulty metric, but maybe I am missing something.

        The behind the paywall stuff shows we did much better.

        ESPN is circling the drain. Is there ANYTHING constructive you contribute to this site? If not, get lost. And we know you have multiple monikers. Get a life, man.

          I don’t get understand why everyone blows up on Pace so much. So what if he has an opinion that people disagree with. This wasn’t even a post about his opinion. It was factual. He is not a troll looking to rile people up. On the contrary, we’ve seen him eat crow and OWN IT on several occasions in the face of logic and evidence. We should embrace opinions across the spectrum, and if we disagree, personal attacks and requests to shut up aren’t the solution. Use your down thumb, ignore, or talk about it.

            It’s primarily because Pace is a dick and he doesn’t, ever, eat crow.
