Yep, you poll a bunch of 17 and 18 year olds about anything, the results can likely be described as not making sense.....

Hmmm, looking at where Auburn/Alabama are, this makes me think the polling was equally distributed around the country.

As we all know, an inordinate amount of top recruits come from the southeast, so maybe therein lies the "problem".

Also, not a surprise is the correlation between brand strength and revenue

so, obviously better to be above the line
be harder for Nebraska next year after receiving a full Big Ten share of $$$
hopefully, Coach Frost can enhance the brand

Yeah, except Georgia is high, but perhaps this was done very recently?  But that doesn't explain Alabama.

Recruits also can consider where they can go to play as freshmen.

A "sensible" response would probably be to have Stanford at Number One in my view.  If you are a top player, you should get PT early and shine and make the NFL.  And oh by the way if you work a bit academically you get that name on your diploma.

but, he wasn't a 4-star LB

Nope, I wasn't.  I had decent talent for high school in baseball, but my shoulder went bad my junior year.  In basketball, I was decent but blew out an ankle my senior year, missed 9 games and was still named co-MVP.  My ankle still bothers me.

But, if you get an athletic scholarship to Stanford, just go.

that's what I would have done in 1981, but wasn't offered

for many reasons, academically and athletically
