Yup... and ranking system rarely are able to take into consideration how well you fill your needs. I think ESPN used to try and rank with that as a factor, but not sure if they ever got that implemented in a fashion that made sense.@94 Grad mentions the number of players Rivals has rated as a 6 when comparing the two classes--UGA with six, Bama with three. Just looking at those nine players and how they are ranked (bonused) you can see UGA with a huge lead for the 6.0 guys.
UGA / national rank Points Bama / national rank Points Dominick Blaylock - #55 43 Shane Lee - #50 45 Travon Walker - # 34 55 Marcus Banks - #53 43 Jermaine Johnson - #2 83 Jordan Banks - #37 49 Lewis Cine - #54 43 Nakobe Dean - #31 55 Tyrique Stevenson - #35 55 334 137
There's a 16 point differential in the total number of points: UGA with 3063 and Bama with 3047.
Bama leads in player rankings, UGA leads in bonus points and the total overall. There's a 46 point swing in player rankings and the final team rankings (which include their bonus points.)
It's fun to look at, but really rankings are pointless. What I try to look at is did we get who we went after.... if you can say yes, you have a good class. That's what really matters the most.
