It's a slow Saturday night....discuss:
But in the case study here — comparing Michigan, Michigan State and Notre Dame — the rankings of recruiting classes means virtually nothing.
Why bring it up now, in June, when the players being ranked won't play a college game for more than a year? Well, ESPN came out with its early rankings this week and there was a lot of chest-thumping in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines were rated sixth and the Irish 13th.
The Spartans? Not among the top 25. Granted, they have only five commitments for 2012, but they were not included, nonetheless.
My question is: Is there anyone who is surprised by this?
