That would be great.

My point is that he lifts the 2019 ranking more so than Gilman even though Gilman's impact is greater. That said, having 85 players in the ranking, things like that tend to...

I agree that it is not perfect. One issue is that it does not give upper classmen ratings more weight than underclassmen since they will usually have more of an impact for a given season. But it can...

Who thinks that LSU will leapfrog Ohio St? I could see it going either way.

I assume that Clemson and Oklahoma will be #3 and #4 respectively.

I actually do not know how good Rees is or is not as either a coach or recruiter.

One question to ask is: Can the other QBs come in and contribute?

If not, whose fault is that?

I was at the game at Clemson wearing full ND gear. I was treated with respect by everyone I talked to and was offered food and drink by Clemson fans at over 10 different tailgates.

It is false that Kelly is "putting more players in the NFL" than he used to.
