See Ya Tomorrow

Each day, we get up and try to bring you all the news from around the league as well as some — when we have time for it — research pieces.  Today, we posted the number of players from each state’s Top 20 prospects who signed with a particular school.

The goal was just to see how much talent leaves a state.

We always try to use one baseline so as to prevent arguing.  In this case, player ratings, not star rankings, according to Rivals.com.

But more than 100 angry emails later, they’ve been taken down. 

Why do you use Rivals, not Scout?  Not ESPN?  Not 247?  (All because those rankings favor the writer’s favorite school.)

Why do you list players by rating and not star ranking… and not by the individual state rankings from various publications?  (Mainly because not all sites have the same rankings.)

Why do you list jucos?  Why do you list players by their high school and not by their birthplace?  Why do you list juco players by their junior colleges and not their high schools?

Why do you hate my school?

Now that’s par for the course and it shows plenty of people are reading.  And it’s not like we’re having to mine coal around here.  Things are quite cushy, actually. 

That’s thanks 100% to you, and it’s appreciated.

But there are days when the battles and insults just get old.  And as someone who went through cancer last summer, I can promise you that life is way too short to deal with that much negativity.

So we’ll be back at it with plenty o’ news tomorrow.
