    Some interesting trends in the past 4 years, JSU in the top 10 each year, the Ivies rule in recruiting especially the Eli's, Nova near the top each year. It's fun to look at and guess Maine should be very fortunate to have the overall #2 recruit, anyone know much about him, Kolin Demens a LB from Michigan?
    He probably was asked to decommit from UCLA for academic reasons.

    I see the purple panthers are using their lofty ranking as a promotional tool for their program. That's definitely something.

It is an oxymoron with the Ivy's ranked when they do NOT participate in the division championships.
    I just know our roster is much stronger over the last two cycles.
    Thatís my one gripe about the rankings but itís not hero sportsí fault. You rank these ivyís so high, but in reality, weíll never know how good their recruiting classes are because they donít participate in the FCS playoffs to show how they really stack up nationally.

    it also doesn't translate to NFL players ... I recall a coupole studies that came out a year or so ago. One highlighted how well the Ivy teams did with HS recruits. The other article demonstrated it in no way translated to NFL prospects drafter or on NFL rosters. So there's that ... I'll see if I can find tthe same info.

    Is there a chance that some of the players that the Ivies get with P5/FBS offers really only have pwo offers with promises of academic scholarships?

    As a sidenote, Furman's Clay Hendrix said that most of Furman's recruiting battles this year were against the Ivy league teams and not the other SoCon schools.
    FU all the time.

    Too many do not know the factual history of the superior talent that came through PVAMU. Not only did we have a lock on the talent in texas but also westward into Cali as well.

    ut-austin longhorns, txa&m aggies, et al texas current d-1 bcs busters couldn't stay w/in 50 points of PVAMU during that time lol.
