I want to start off with a quick shout out to all of the players that have joined the DAWG pack this year. Welcome aboard! We in Husky nation are absolutely nuts about everything related to Husky sports so please forgive some of us that get a little too FANatical in our debate. When we talk about "poor class" vs "strong class" or "late rally saving the class" we don't mean the individual players are/were lacking, simply that we didn't get enough players at certain positions.
Having said that, there has been a lot of debate about how good this class really is (as it pertains to our team needs), and what it might mean as far as long term recruiting strategy. I know we are all really happy with the late rally in this class, but was it good enough? How do you feel about the apparent emphasis of Cal talent over the local boys? I personally hope that this was just a one year anomaly, not a trend. I'll let it slide this year because we landed some monster players from out of state. However, we can't let the local big fish slip away any more. What do you think?
