*The Tigers had almost 100 recruits in town—on official and unofficial visits—for their victory over Florida State last weekend, according to CUTigers.com. The 40-24 win probably didn’t hurt their chances with many of them. Sounds like a weekend roundup of prime beef, and now they can (metaphorically speaking) start culling the herd.
*The SEC continues to pound the ACC and almost everyone else (The Big 12, with Oklahoma and Texas ranked Nos. 1 and 2 by Scout.com, might take offense). The problem for the ACC is that it competes on a regular basis with the SEC for players—the Southeastern U.S. is home base for much of each league.
So far, the SEC is winning those battles with regularity; it has collected 22 of Scout’s Top 100 players in the Class of 2010, while the ACC has five. That shows in the overall rankings—the SEC is No.1; the ACC is fifth, also trailing the Big 12, the Big Ten and the Pac-10.
*Just my two cents here, but the SEC should swap South Carolina to the ACC for Miami. Can you imagine placing the Gamecocks in the same division with Clemson? And South Carolina might finally win that elusive division title. The bottom line, though, is that it makes so much geographical sense.
