There is a cottage industry of rating services that diligently rate and rank high school prospects that are recruited by the college football programs and also rank all football programs. Scout.com is one of the reliable services. I was curious to see how they ranked FSU versus Wake who just demolished us and Western Michigan who we play this Saturday. For the last recruiting class, FSU was ranked #12 in the nation while Wake was #65 and Western Michigan was #98.
If you go back to 2003 in order to see those who were recruited and are definitely starting now for their respective teams, FSU again was ranked #12 in the country while Wake was #42 and Western Michigan was #92. Quite a disparity in talent. What this tells me is our coaches are not coaching these athletes and squandering tremendous potential. You can see that especially in the skill positions of QB and receiver corps.
