Dude, I'm trying to put your logic in perspective.
You rated it a C, and then said Tony's 7.5 out of a 10 justified your rating.
Another poster said that a 7.5 on a 1-10 scale is above average, a B, which then you said "In what world is a 7.5 a b? That is a c."
School grades, which you are trying to correlate it to, are not on a 1-10 scale.
Is this hard for you to understand?
Why would I want any chick that dumped you?
I can understand you deflecting the hypothetical, but no need to be rude.
We use the 1-10 scale because it correlates the 1-100 more easily, which is what we use for grading. 7.5 is average.
You're just making up stuff.
How would you rate FSU's class?
To quote a fellow poster in the past: "Three mules fighting over a turnip."
Very few freshmen or JC players can come in and make an immediate impact. They have to have great football ability and be able to learn the playbook quickly. That is hard to find, even on the JC level.
I think Moore and Bryant could be elite. I think one of them will be starting at WLB by season's end and I think Walton can contribute.
We signed a JUCO CB. I think that is about as good as you can do for immediate help at DB. He's a legit 4.4 guy that LSU offered out of high school. Him or Rico will likely beat out Jimmy.
I also think we got immediate help at LB. Walton is 230. Johnson is going to have to lose weight, but both of those guys are big enough to step right in the middle, if needed. Skai and Larenz can help immediately at WILL. I'm not sure what you expected, or how you can even make that statement regardless of who we signed. Who would you classify as immediate help?
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
I think if any high school linebackers can step in and immediately help, there's no reason why one or two of the ones we signed can't do it. Rankings are certainly not perfect indicators of future success.

Tony said the class was a B. So either you are an idiot and can't understand that a scale from 1-10 is not the same as grades for school, or you are just fishing to start controversy. I Personally wish the mods would just ban you. You never offer anything to the board.
With C being average, top 20 in the country would be a solid B or maybe even B+ nationally.
8th in the SEC would give us a C in conference.
How do you judge a cake before tasting it? You can't or shouldn't judge this class until they have stepped on the field.
Ok, let's examine what we have here...
No real superstars, but...no duds either. Most consider it an average class, we don't gain ground, we don't lose ground. Quite a number of our recruits have some real potential, and with our coaching staff who is awesome at developing talent (unlike the upstate coaches who can turn a 5* into a 3* by end of their college career), we're in good shape imo.
However, I'm giving this class a B+ for one solid reason....SC talent is down, and our coaching staff had to step out and recruit against a number of big schools and pulled some real talent out of those other states going head to head against those schools. A few years ago, we would have flopped as we didn't really pull from other states like we managed to do this year. Way to go coaches! Great job going out and getting it done! Quite a number of these players will be major keys for us in the future.
