Finally made the jump over here after being on the other sites for the past 10+ years.
Got a question though? Who are the "guru's" other than Jamie Oakes on recruiting BB and FB? Not saying other posters do not provide good content, but I am looking for people with "connections" on recruiting.
Maybe, I should phrase it as, "who are the posters that you make sure to read around recruiting"?
Welcome to the site, Chowder. Many of the names and the faces are the same.
I don't know how to say this.....but I'm kind of a big deal.
Seriously....as JO noted, many similar faces. Lots of guys on here have ins through various places, which they'll usually note when they post. Coachrobbie and crosshairs are both actively involved in VA HS football and have some great insights to share.
Thanks, those are my mainstays on the other board. Sorry if I insulted anyone. Just want to differentiate pure opinion versus opinion grounded in connections that I do not have.
BTW, great site. I can't believe it has taken me this long. I have been reading about UVA sports on the web since the mid to late 90's when it was the Wahoo Wagon and virginiafootball.com/virginiabasketball.com. I feel like I am a kid in a candy store now.
I got the 757 on lock
That's how I felt when I joined. Just been a few months for me....one edition of Cav Confidential is enough to hook you.....forever.
Some guy named Chipper Jones or Chip West will post, but it often vanishes before you complete scrolling down to his post. Welcome chowder ... This is the best site out there and Oakes is the reason. As was the case with Al Groh, per Al Golden, Groh and Oakes sleep with eyes wide open.
Jay just mentioned the name we do not say.... goodbye Jay. The ninja is probably already at your house.....
Those are two that I value up near Jamie, fwiw. But with tthat said there are many people with many avenues, I hear alot that can't necc be posted that comes from some connectes folks. Everyone contributes value here, great site run by THE Man.
Anyone from the other side knows Oakes is the man, cool as he is connected. The onis on Bball and the other sports and with the addittion of JJ has taken this place to a new level over the last months. I use to subscribe to all sites but being poor the wife said choose one, easy pick, GO HOOs !!
you get an upvote for the sandlot reference
Like some have already stated, we have a few coaches on here, and JHoo and Mikeysurf. I absolutely love The Sabre, but one main difference is, there are many there that either think or want to be known as a 'guru", whereas you don't really find that mindset here as much.
And you have to read Tugard's posts...he's (usually) awesome!
