We are in the most BORING time of year if you're a college sports fan, especially college football, so any conversation is fair game.
Anyway, I think I agree with what you're saying. If you closely examine RichRod's classes at WVU, it seems as though he had a throw-everything-against-a-wall-and-see-what-sticks mentality. He recruited a million 2 and 3 star RB's, WR's and Slot guys over the course of 5 or 6 solid recruiting years, and out of those emerged Steve Slaton and Pat White, Darius Reynaud and Chris Henry, and perhaps a few others. Those guys were all low-rated recruits and turned out to be stars in that offense.
Now at Michigan he is recruiting a million 3 and 4 star guys at the same positions. It will be interesting to see how this develops on the field in the next few years.
Granted it's not like anything I've just said hasn't been said before, it just seems as though people tend to forget that stuff when they actually see the recruits coming in. People seem to expect that since RichRod is a "name"-coach, and Michigan is a top destination for football players, we should be pulling in recruits like Florida or USC. I think that can happen eventually, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. Besides, it took Tressel a good 5 or 6 years before he really started bringing in a lot of elite prospects, and look how successful he has been, and was before.
