Not a poor business model when you have year round, wall-to-wall coverage of college football in Alabama, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.  With the midwest, major programs are much more few and far between.  You have Ohio and Michigan as the major college football states in the midwest.

It seems 5.7 is the highest 3-star and 5.8's are all 4 stars. So far, every single one of our 3 stars is a 5.7 which means they're right on the line. So any 3 star players we're taking could be 4 stars with an impressive camp or season.

(include standard disclaimer about recruiting rankings not being the be-all-and-end-all of football)

the early returns seem great. last year only 3/13 3* guys were 5.7 (7 were 5.5s). As of now, all eight 3* guys in the 2012 class are 5.7. Pretty astounding. That means our class breaks down into entirely 4* and 3 3/4* guys more or less.

Early returns look great, but last year several guys who committed early were given higher ranks that slowly slid over time.  EG:  Hollowell was a 4*, Greg Brown and Chris Rock both had 5.7; all 3 dropped over time.  Senior campaigns may have played a role in some of the drops.

This is a little off topic.. but compare the user ratings for the Ohio commits and Michigan commits. Something tells me that Rivals' subscribers consist of more Michigan fans than OSU fans..
