So ESPN ranks us at #7 in the recruiting wars. What scale do they use that makes us so much higher in their rankings than everyone elses. Does it mean anything anyway? I guess the answer to that question really depends on the answer to the question of can we get a new offensive coordinator. Or a QB coach and let CMR run the offense. Anyway What do you think of the rankings?
