The New College Football Domination



As the picture in the post below below shows, the Southeastern Conference is easily maintaining their traditional dominance of football recruiting. But instead of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia sitting atop those rankings, it’s the two schools that would be picked last in the metaphorical game of kickball, plus Johnny Football and the new kids on block from Texas A&M.


While only time will tell if and how this new school SEC domination will translate to the football field, at least one writer out there thinks the topsy-turviness is good for college football. JC Shuburtt of 247Sports took the time to single out a handful of schools that are raising eyebrows across the football recruiting scene (include fellow SEC brethren Tennessee and Louisville). Unsurprisingly, Kentucky made the cut:


National Rank- No. 5
Conference Rank- No. 3
Top recruit- Denzel Ware, DE, Crestview (Fla.), No. 5 weakside defensive end nationally per 247Composite
Top recruiter- Vince Marrow, tight ends coach, No. 9 recruiter nationally
Overview- The Wildcats have been the biggest surprise of the 2014 cycle to date and one of the big reasons has been Marrow’s ability to corral Ohio talent. Eight of the 15 prospects currently committed to UK are from the Buckeye State (including four-star defensive back Darius West)- all Marrow commits. When Mark Stoops was hired in Lexington, his recruiting connections in Ohio and Florida were cited as a major positive. Thus far, that has proven true.


You’ll notice that Shuburtt wrote this when Kentucky was slumming it down at #5 in the recruiting rankings- this was a mere three days ago. That’s just how fast Kentucky football is revolving these days.

    “include fellow SEC brethren Tennessee and Louisville”

    Honestly. “Brethren” is pleural. When did Louisville join the SEC?

    “includes fellow SEC brother Tennessee as well as Louisville” might work for an edit…

    It’s beginning to look alot like Card-musts.

    Yes, feeling unworthy. The neighbors (Chone-zez).

    As Clint would say, “git my drift”?

    Pound the chest (bird breast).

    We are better than that.

    ‘Lil bro is still playing catch up (‘far’d Denny Crum, Legend, and still took about 14 years).

    Give it a fokkin rest.

    Brethren? Cards are not part of the SEC (see #2).

    However, they are trolls (see #4). Keep dreamin’ Robert. The dirty birds had a good year, but 1 good year doesn’t put you on our level. Know your place, little bro.
