    Here are 10 reasons why you should sit back, relax and enjoy the day ó and not fret about your teamís recruiting class being ranked 37th as opposed to 27th Ö or 17th:

    Ted Ginn, Philip Brown, Marcus Walker, Cortney Grixby, J.R. Bryant, Willie Glasper, Bobby Tatum, Terrail Lambert, Trimane Goddard and Michael Grant.

    Actually, here are 10 more:

    Tate Lyles, Jackie Bates, Rodney Van, Brandon Underwood, Tony Carter, Brandon Robinson, Trevor Ford, Virdell Larkins, Uriah Marshall and D.J. Davis.


    And 10 more:

    Dawayne Grace, Charles Stewart, Ramarcus Brown, Bryan Payton, Leo Ferrine, Tristan Davis, Miguel Scott, Christian Varner, Ramonce Taylor, George Timmons,

    And, while weíre at it, five more:

    Rod Council , Shaun Lane, McIntosh Nicolas, Johnathan Hefney and Eric Hines.

    Those are the 35 cornerbacks in the HS class of 2004 that scout.com rated higher than Darrelle Revis, whoís only the best CB on the planet these days.

    Revis was ranked No. 36 in his prep class and No. 41 overall (five JCs were ahead of him).

    He had offers from Kansas and West Virginia ó thatís not exactly Oklahoma and Penn State ó but signed with his home-state school, Pittsburgh.

    Then he developed into a first-round pick (No. 14 overall) and two-time Pro Bowler for the Jets.

    There is a tendency, especially this week, to get caught up in the stars and the numbers, to fret about a recruiting class not cracking the scout or rivals or ESPN top 25.

    But recruiting isnít an inexact science because itís not a science at all. Itís educated guesswork, with enormous potential for malfunction.

    So if your tailback is ranked No. 40 in his class (Toby Gerhart in 2006) Ö

    Or if your quarterback isnít ranked at all (Aaron Rodgers in 2002) Ö

    Or if your teamís class is ranked No. 78, 57 and 64 in consecutive years (Boise State from 2006-08) Ö

    Ö. Try not to stress.

    Think about No. 24 in green and white.

    Hard to say yet. I think it's pretty good, and could be extremely good if we get Owa.

    Owa is a good looking talent

    How about the Ducks? What do they think they're getting with Seastrunk??

    Auburn quit on him over character issues(as did some others), but if he develops and keeps his nose clean he should be a big-time player IMO

    I also saw Cal come in with a nice class. Some good buzz here in the bay area for the Bears, especially in stealing Keenan Allen

    Looks like things turned out better for the Pac-10 than I thought it would.

    UCLA/USC/Cal/Stanford/Oregon and Oregon St. all had nice classes. USC could really finish strong with S. Henderson. I think Carroll being gone will really level the playing field and be a great thing for the conference in the long run, with more talent being spread around

    forgot about Wazzou, they got one of the best QBs in the nation. Sarks is gonna be good up there

    Owa to UCLA

    Solid kid, only one I've seen make a speech about how much he loved his family and his commitment to being a student first, and then an athlete

    UCLA is a great academic schoo, maybe that influenced him. But let's be honest, L.A. is much better than Oregon.

    I just want to throw out a big fat Thankya to Lane Kiffin. I was really disappointed when Ahmad Dixon (who went to my high school) decommitted from Baylor in favor of Tennessee.

    No doubt, academics influenced him. I still think Oregon St has a brighter future than UCLA or Nebraska (his other choice) football-wise. Neuheisel doesn't impress me one bit

    Yeah, that was a total surprise choice by Owa. However, you look at what they were able to do with Brian Price and the academics over in Westwood--you can see the choice isn't really all that surprising. Nice get by the crosstown rivals...if he turns into 2/3rds the Oregonian product Suh was, the Bruins will be stellar on D for a few years to come.

    I don't understand why people cannot talk about Owa without bringing up Suh

    what do they have in common again?

    Black d-lineman from Oregon?

    Is that how bad high school football is up there


    Traylon Shead really reminds me of Thurman Thomas too

    Well, that's who they were comparing him to as he was developing, so if he's what they say he is then it might be a valid comparison. Suh is/was the standard for DEs last year and any DL will be held up to him for a couple seasons until another stellar defensive lineman comes along.

    Good point. There just aren't many black people up here. Owa's damn good though.

    You got one of the kids from my hometown Tlong

    Lache Seastrunk RB 5-11 192 Temple, TX. - Oregon

    Word is in that five-star running back Lache Seastrunk has committed to Oregon.

    A Texas news station tweeted the announcement a short while ago.

    SI.com reported earlier today that the five-star recruit would give his verbal to the Oregon Ducks when he announced his decision at 5:15 today, and that rumor is now official.

    The rumors are that Seastrunk was set to sign for the USC Trojans prior to Pete Carroll's departure, but that he changed his commitment once Carroll left for Seattle.

    Chip Kelly convinced Seastrunk to visit Eugene, and between that and a desire to play in the Pac-10, the versatile five-star talent was convinced that the Ducks were his most favorable destination.

    This corroborates an earlier story by MaxPreps.com's Tom Lemming, who said that Seastrunk was one of a few recruits who had committed, or were planning on committing, to Pete Carroll rather than to the Trojans.

    Once Carroll was gone, Seastrunk skipped his weekend unofficial to USC and was dissuaded from visiting the Trojans further despite the efforts of Lane Kiffin.

    Seastrunk's final choices were Oregon, LSU, Auburn, USC, and Memphis. Yet Auburn and LSU cooled on his commitment down the road, Auburn because of landing RB Michael Dyer and remaining in the mix for RB Marcus Lattimore, and LSU (possibly) because of concerns about his senior-year production.

    Though head coach Larry Porter, with whom Seastrunk had struck up a bond while Porter was running backs coach at LSU, took over for the Tigers, it's clear Seastrunk wants to tests his talents against the best teams in college football.

    Oh and he is black.

    Sex is an important part of life and overall well-being. In relationships, orgasms play a significant part in bonding. Physical and emotional benefits like reduced risk of heart disease, improved self-esteem, and more can come from having sex.
    But what if you are not in a relationship, but you really want sex? I am in this situation, so when I want sex I call Lithuanian escorts from EscortGirls
    Thus, I am always satisfied even if I am not in a relationship.
