Recruiting geography and other links
This SI.com article is sparking all sorts of discussion in the blogosphere. The premise -- that the talent in the south is deeper and better and gives southern schools an advantage -- overstates that advantage and also overlooks the other factors in winning. As BC has shown, you can win when you don't have a deep talent pool in your backyard. Winning is not just about finding talent, it's also about nurturing it and then using that talent to out scheme your opponent on Saturday. Now, I am not saying BC has as much talent as Florida, but I also don't think Florida is assured of anything based on their location and good recruiting. Just look at what happened with Ron Zook. Coaching still matters. Development still matters. And the recruiting rankings still miss guys (see BJ Raji). I'll flush out other thoughts related to this concentration of power in the south in a later post.
