Not saying I don't want to have the highest rated class in the PAC every year, and maybe we will get there, but I don't think consistently being around 4th in the conference, which is where Herm has been, puts you in the Sun Bowl every year eithr, as discussed below.
Obviously, recruiting rankings don't translate automatically to finishing record, as systems differ, some programs are better at preparing players, player retention differs, etc.
That said, finishing around 4th every year in recruiting in a 2 division conference doesn't mean you cannot be a contender.
Recently the north has had better teams so 4th overall is 1st or 2nd in the south. If you win the south, you get a shot at winning the conference in the title game, which likely puts you in the playoff or Rose Bowl, not every year, but some years.
