Nice video! But I think recruiting is overrated it is all what the coach does with the recruit. I mean a good coach can win with mediocre players. But a bad coach can't win with the best players.

To a degree this is true. You can train your team to be mentally tough enough to play well when tired. You can get your team into exception shape to play twice as many plays as your opponent. You can teach your team to swarm the ball on defense and never quit on a play on offense. You can scheme to minimize size and speed limitations. You can scheme to put your best talent in spots where your opponent is vulnerable, but to play at the highest level --- vs. the Big 10 champ, pac 10 champ, or the top 2-3 SEC and Big 12 teams --- you have to have at least top talent in your starting lineup and 2-4 top reserves.

A team like Hawaii last season could hang last year with all but about 5-7 teams in the country that had outstanding depth (say LSU, USC, Georgia, Oklahoma, UT, and Ohio State). Frankly Hawaii might have even had a decent good shot against Texas, Ohio State, or even OU as none of those teams were as dominating defensively or as deep defensively as USC, LSU, and Georgia.

Rivals.com has Notre Dame ranked #2 in recruiting right behind Nick Saban and Alabama and just above Florida.

Of course Notre Dame has consistently ranked high in recruiting over the years. Whether this year's class along with recent prior ones shall translate into soon successful seasons, we shall see.

It is delightful to see Alabama and others have vital funds left for recruiting after getting their head coaches paid ::).

These rankings - to put it bluntly - are sort of stupid when they consider classes that are over 25. IIRC - the max class you can bring in is 25..... IMO They should rank the class after the summer when the signees are actually there.
