Because, with 3 more years of bowl bans and a 15 scholarship cap (pushed to 20 due to EE's), we shouldn't even be in the top 50. I come on... you are NEBRASKA, a supposed blue blood. You should be ticked.
I give PSU a lot of credit for maintaining what they have done thus far.. I am hopeful that N and wisky can do something to change their standings. But wisky needs to figure out how to finally win a Rose Bowl to help them through losing Ccoach B, don't think it helps that he left for Arkansas, which is middle of the pack SEC at best
To be fair, it seems a lot of B1G schools have smaller classes this year (or at least to date), which could be reason why overall ranking is down
I mean Vanderbilt has a top 15 class, but their average star per recruit is lower than MSU's and Nebraska, yet neither of them are in the top 30 (with 15 and 16 total recruits, respectively)
Overall recruiting rankings are skewed..
The Big Ten teams will never sign as many as the SEC. Because of that, it's unrealistic of people to expect them to be top 5 year in and year out, but they should be showing better in the 10-25 range than what they are.
we are 25/28 with losing one of our biggest recruits. Sadly this is probably our best class ever. Though keeping it anywhere near that will be a miracle.
People are way too consumed with class rankings before they even hit college. BFD if a class is top 10 now - before they step into college. I wish these services would rank classes three or four years after the fact. That is what matters - how they perform in college, not based on ridiculous stars before they hit college.
FWIW, the midwest is always a little undervalued in recruiting rankings. 247 does the best job with them, but the other sites are horrible. JMO.
Michigan will be the only team to threaten IU for the B10 championship. Oaken is really underestimating the Wolverines. Looking forward to watching them play when they visit Bloomington..
That's just it though.. with classes under 20, there's no way anyone is going to break to top 15-20
I don't think that most Big Ten teams are going to sign less than 20. Heck, we have scholarship restrictions and we will still sign 20. I understand it will happen every now and then, but 20-25 should be the norm.
I don't think Michigan or tOSU will have any trouble being top 10 most years. tOSU will always be top 10, and Michigan will always be top 15 at worst IMO.
