While we’re on the subject of recruiting, you might want to check out a couple of posts over at Heisman Pundit. The first ranks the best and worst programs of the decade, filtered through Sagarin’s rantings, national championships, top 10 finishes, wins over ranked teams and BCS performance. The second ranks programs based on the talent they’ve acquired (using data from Rivals) and compares it to what they’ve achieved over the decade.
Based on what I see there, I’ve got a question for those arguing that Mark Richt deserves to be enthroned on a hot seat: how did Pete Carroll escape your critical eyes, based on the results from the past few seasons? Southern Cal’s 2008 team, which still has one class left to enter the NFL draft, ranks higher in NFL draft points than Georgia’s 2000 and 2002 squads. That’s remarkable for a program that hasn’t sniffed a BCS title game in four seasons.
