obviously there's not much to get excited about in the recruiting so far but i've changed perspective on this. for years i've kinda followed the process and celebrated the 4* and 5* kids and been relatively happy with many recruiting classes, very many of which were ranked highly nationally. what did it get us on the field? nothing.
in the meantime, there have been lots of places that have achieved success in both the short and long term with teams containing almost no highly rated kids. i'm thinking of places like Boise, Wazzu, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin, Stanford, Northern Illinois, UCF etc...
the point is that good coaching means a lot and can win with lesser talent. yeah, its easier with an Alabama roster of NFL players but i'm sure they pay handsomely for that. i don't believe we do.
so i'm going to have some faith in Chip, who deserves the benefit of the doubt.
