Apparently they got some 4 star DE last minute. Obviously the ratings don't matter much, but it's ridiculous that Lane Kiffin has this kind of pull/swagger already at SC. Moreover, I think the cream of the crop players for Texas and Florida are more balanced than USC. Ambles, Woods, Prater are all wideouts plus RB Baxter. Texas scored big with Jeffcoat and Hicks. Florida got the best deal with Floyd, Easley, Elam, Powell. I think most people would take blue chip defenders over pure skill positions any day of the week.
"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
