    One more week! This is going to be an exciting season.

    Good luck to Cody this season. It will be awesome to see him break those records.

    Cody's case is why I never put faith in all the hype of a recruiting class. The quiet kid at the bottom sets records and the top touted one transfers. Happens at every school. Way to work Cody.

    Well said, quite the problem to have talent and no stars out of H.S. to go with it. What will we do to cope with such things?

    I hope 'someone' can explain this.

    Go Cody! Go Aggies! Go BYU! Go Wildcats! Go Mizzou! Go Buffs! etc. etc. LOL

    Come on Cougar fans - the data are glaring - kids with the most stars play more often in the NFL. It's just a fact.
    We can cheer Cody on and be grateful that we found a diamond, but don't kid yourselves, stars matter.
    Go Cougs

    Sounds like many still have stars in their eyes. Stars will never be able to evaluate the heart and where the heart is the body follows along with the level of success.

    IF he had had some to throw to him in the past who could throw he'd have the record already. Look at how he performed as a freshman with someone who could throw. We have to give Bronco credit for listen to someone else and looking at an unknown player. You have to give Hoffman credit for accepting making the right decision.

    Im sure if he chose to play for an Elite BCS program he would be setting NCAA records that would never be broken...ever. But unfortunately he chose to play for a non-elite, non-prestigious Indy-Wacy team like BYU ain't that right Chris B.?

    Stars are as meaningless as pre-season rankings. Some star ratings are accurate; some aren't even close.

    "Come on Cougar fans - the data are glaring - kids with the most stars play more often in the NFL. It's just a fact."

    There were twice as many 2- and 3-star players on the all-PAC 12 team in 2012, as there were 4- and 5-star players.

    Can you explain that?

    @cordonbleu...."There were twice as many 2- and 3-star players on the all-PAC 12 team in 2012, as there were 4- and 5-star players.

    Pretty simple on most teams there are over 80% more 2-3 star players then 4-5 star players. When you look at it as a % and not whole number. A much higher % of 4-5 star recruits make all conference teams, NFL, etc. I'm not one of those that looks at just stars however you can't dispute that it does matter and it matters alot. If it didn't you wouldn't see Alabama, Florida, Texas, USC, Oregon, etc. etc. recruit so many of them.
