According to the ticker on ESPNU Ward is listed as "Verbal" still. Most of the players that have signed are listed as "Signed". I'm just wondering if this could be the big surprise we were hearing about earlier. Maybe that would brighten up this day a bit. War Eagle.
Probably impossible to beat Ole Miss when they offer his walk-on brother a scholarship. Although this would make my day if true. Let's cautiously hope you're right.
He's gone....faxed in about 5 hours ago.
Yeah, dont rely on ESPN for news. They just report whatever they feel like reporting. Thats part of the reason our recruiting struggled this year. They spent the last 2 years spreading lies about us.
Yeah they still had us rated at 17 where scout and rivals has us at 11.
Right now they have us at #16 for 2012....and the site where we're posting these messages has us #17.
Last year they had us at #3 (Rivals #7, 247 #6).
In 2010 they had us at #4 (Rivals #4, 247 #6).
Their average rating of #3.5 the last two years is the highest of any rating out there.
And today they had some good things to say about us....on a day where not a whole lot went our way. Look at the screen shots (attached) of their Signing Day promo commercial on ESPNU. They showed about 5 or 6 guys putting on hats....two of them were Auburn. Look at Herbstreit's set behind him from today's ESPNU coverage....AU helmet behind him.
I just mention all that because it's really easy to slip into this false sense of "ESPN hates us" or "ESPN never respects us". It just isn't true the vast majority of the time.
