Chance at #1 Recruiting Class in '17?

Steve Wiltfong of 247 thinks it is possible-

He states #2 or 3 is more likely, but figured this was a cool mid-week share, albeit the entire article is behind a paywall.
If Michigan were to land the #1 class it would have to be pretty freaking special with OSUs class they are putting together.  Even #2 this year may be the #1 class most other years.

Matters for what? If we finish 6th then panic? Is finishing top-5 the only way to win a title? If so, then you're right.

If top-5 is all that matters then why don't the services just state, "Here are the top 5 classes in no particular order," and label everyone else the AYOs? Maybe finishing in the top-5 is all that matters to YOU, but that statement is pretty unsound.

For argument's sake, can we probably bet that a top-6 recruiting class is also correlated to contending for a national title?  

I think the dude's point was that being "up there" is important, but arbitrary cut offs shouldn't worry us.

But maybe the difference between 5 and 6 is statistically significant. I can't imagine it is super significant, but I admit to my ignorance on this one.

I like being out in the fresh air with my kids trying to find the right pumpkin and eating apples while picking them. Then going and getting donuts and cider. It's not the most exciting thing to do, but I do find it to be fun. It also is coupled with a nice fall drive, which I really like.  Driving through the fall colors on back roads.

I moved to Texas 2 years ago.  I went to an apple orchard every year to buy unpasuterized cider when I lived in Michigan.  It was awesome, and I miss it very much.  I bought some "cider" from Sams Club last week and it was rank, spoiled in the Southern heat...


So, Yes.

Errand Run Timer - Ain't that the truth.  I told my wife that I'm likely going to die rushing on my way back from an errand "taking too long".  That's how much she needles me about how long my errands take.  Yet I'm oblivious to how long she's gone and don't particularly care despite having the kids during her errands (and sometimes during mine).  SMDH.
