Rick didn't call me out. They switched me to another question right after.
I do have a comeback. It doesn't happen. If what you are saying is true, every single leader in this industry is biased and unprofessional and has exhibited bad actor behavior -- because most of them have worked with me.
The national rankings properties do not pander to the larger fan bases. The larger fan bases sign the best classes, because they are the historical power recruiting schools.
That is complete BS that ratings would drop if a kid committed to Auburn. 1000 percent NOT true and there's about 50 people that worked at Rivals that would agree with me.
I for one DO NOT question your integrity as I've been a loyal patron since the old Rivals days..
Anyone running a recruiting site or multiple sites is logically going to be a fan of SOME team..Once they find your school, they always claim bias..
Shannon has a PROVEN track record and I'll vouch for him anyday..
Also, they don't get any better than G and Rusty..
Bama has won 2 titles recently and I doubt they did it with second rate players.
My guess is that fans of OTHER boards are trying to smear 24/7 as they go the way of CNN!....
Thanks for joining the discussion. I just find it strange that Bama is #1 on247's recruiting rankings, yet is not 1 on any other site and is as low as 6 on one site. Every other site is in consensus about Michigan being 1 this year so far, except 247. Maybe it is just the aura around Bama right now, and people feel if they offer someone that they have to be better than what they think because Bama is immune to bad evals. I do not mean to offend you, but I just sense the bias.
Glad to be here.
I don't disagree that some players may be rated too highly by our staff. I don't know. But if it is done, it is because it is subjective. Gerry Hamilton and J.C Shurburtt can better speak on why Alabama is ranked no. 1 at this time.
Again, we are releasing a team rankings product in the very near future that should completely shut down any discussions of bias for 247Sports. I will go into more details in a couple weeks.
Awesome, can't wait
My goodness son...It's June BEFORE these players play their Senior year..I would suspect you are a YOUNG man...Take it from an OLD man that rankings change daily and will probably be representative of the class each team SIGNS at the end of the recruiting period..
Georgia should fare very well with one of the biggest classes in recent history..
I've been subscribing to magazines,900 numbers,talk radio,TV, and finally the internet since the late 70's...Joe Terranova hooked me early!
Yes it would be great for UGA to have the #1 recruiting class but I care more about where we are at the end of the season. And as long as we kick ass on the field ( hopefully BAMAS too) that's all I care about. BAMA could have the # 1 class every year as long as we develop the talent we get and kick their ass when we play them than rankings don't mean

Johnny Dwight commits to Bama on 6/4/13 ranked the 44th DT in the nation by 247sports and 87 rating a 3 star. Now see the Bama bump.
Rankings really do not matter because in the end you have to win on the field with what you have!
