this is one of the most crazy rankings i think i have ever seen..PC outrecruited FU and Woff? I doubt it...Oh yeah, and my Paladins were outrecruited by Charleston Southern and the Citadel - riiiight...this is so SC biased it isn't funny...all they went by was SC recruits and FU goes after a lotof Georgia guys and Woff goes after a lot of Ohio guys - i would feel confident both Woff and FU out recruited everyone on this list

I beg to differ on the issue that Wofford "goes after a lot of Ohio guys". Yes, we do sign a couple every year but if you look at our geographical listing we are fairly diverse in terms of states. On the other hand, FU could be called the University of Atlanta - North Campus (which is what you get when your HC's father is recruiting liason at UGa and his brother coaches high school football in Ga, the Asst. HC is also from Ga and has family in Ga football). Nothing wrong with it as FU gets great talent year in and year out; just an observation. I would like to see Wofford get more in state talent as we have more students who come from SC than elsewhere.
