Itís a fair point.
Teams can outperform their recruiting ranking, and Whittingham sure is doing so this year. Utah has, however, averaged 5 losses per season over the last 3 years, so perhaps consistently outperforming recruiting rankings is more difficult.
If we want to achieve Rayís vision of being a top 15 program and competing for the Pac12 South title and feeding the NFL with prospects each year, goals he laid out when hiring Herm, I donít think weíll get there by achieving consistent recruiting rankings in the mid-30s. We may piece together an occasional nice season like Utah is doing this year, but consistently ending a season top 15 seems like a stretch.
Perhaps we can create better strategic quality in our classes which could help maximize our output from the lower ranked classes (I.e.getting excited about over-recruiting QBs and watching them transfer out isnít maximizing output).
