I don’t care if he did exploit the rules of that class. The point still stands - a coach with a losing record signed the 7th ranked class in the country. At this point, I’d be thrilled with a top 10 class, so I’m not even setting the bar quite so high as to get 5th to 7th, which really should be the expectation with the resources sunk into recruiting staff and facilities.
Like its been said, winning trumps anything else. Just use Clemson or LSU as examples. Is our recruiting budget larger? Facilities better? Who. Wins more games? And by extension, who has higher recruiting classes?
