    Stars do matter, and I think I have objective evidence proving it. But they are far from the only thing that matters. Goodness of fit for the program, development within the program, heart and desire, etc. Our 2008/2009 classes were not highly ranked, but they played with a buttload of heart and desire.

    The bottom line is that this coaching staff has proved that they can recruit not only highly touted players but guys that fit and work hard and play hard. And this coaching staff, and especially our recruits, deserve the benefit of the doubt until they prove otherwise. It is pretty freaking sad that we have people here pissing and moaning rather than being happy at who we just signed.

    Agreed. I just think it is a important point to recognize you could have a bunch of 4 star guys and still be ranked lower just because you didn't have as many schollys to use. That's the most flawed part of the ranking to me and something I wasn't aware of until yesterday.
