Taylor and/or Aubrey,
There is all sort of negative bs going on at OU and Texas (and possibly many other teams') fan boards about our numbers.
How about we have one thread sticky with all the numbers basics so that all the Ags are on same page and can point to the right info for others as well, so that nobody can just bs around.
How does the 25/85 ceiling come in to play? How does the back counting to last years class come into play? How does the early enrollment number comes into play? etc.
Heck, I was myself good on this info until tonight. We are at 35 already, right? And still possibly going after LaRue and Savage and Prevot/Hall? How the heck do have possibly have room for four more?
Are we assuming both Kenny Hill and Kohl Stewart don't sign, and also Wiggins and Griffin can't qualify and we don't send them the signing papers for scholarships? Would that just about make it?
Any other shake-outs possible?-- anything's possible, I suppose. Are we still strong on guys like Shaan Washington? Ed Williams? Are they possibly academically ineligible?
On the 85 roster count, I guess we will have room due to potential early exits by DaMonster and possibly LJ and JM.
How does Thomas Johnson's situation work?

I totally agree. Just when I think I've got it all figured out, I hear of another recruit we picked up that I wasn't counting, or I hear of one that hasn't committed yet that we'd give our left, uh....arm for.
Taylor, I truly appreciate you volunteering to call me and discuss, but I've been out of town and under the weather since we talked about that call. It appears there are others that would benefit from a "CliffNotes" version of "Recruiting....By the Numbers".
Nobody knows exactly what the numbers are for sure. Trust the coaches. They get paid to know these things.
I have every bit of faith in the current coaching staff, especially Coach Sumlin! I'm merely trying to learn the numbers game. I've always kept up with who we're getting and what positions, but never taken the time to learn the rules and regulations or ins and outs of the numbers, early entries, etc. I'm trying to get my hands around it now, before my son gets to the high school level where I hope this comes in handy. I'd much rather get this info from my buds/fellow Aggies than learn it somewhere else.
Your will to win will define you tomorrow.
