The comments on BAMA are quite frankly amazing to me. I love this article!
Taken as a whole, the numbers actually do work -- as long as you're willing to use all of the numbers.
Here, I only allowed for one exception: Alabama, which has claimed the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation in Rivals' estimation four of the last five years. As a result, the Crimson Tide's numbers are so far ahead of the rest of the pack in that span that they effectively constitute a class of their own. Of course, the corresponding results on the field make the Tide the single most compelling example of the rankings' success as a tool for predicting outcomes. At the same time, though, Bama has so vastly outperformed even its most well-heeled peers in those rankings that it would be frankly misleading to group them under the same heading. So for our purposes, in this case, Alabama stands alone.
Otherwise, the designations are based strictly on the combined scores of the rankings alone, with no attempt to account for injuries, transfers, academic casualties, arrests or any other routine form of attrition:
so basically this is a deficiency report for every school not named Alabama.

Alabama's recruiting is putting Pete Carrol's USC classes to shame. This year's class just shattered the Rivals all time record for highest point total.
