I really like how he slams the obsession with recruiting rankings. Good for him. He thinks it's ruining kids and the sports they play. I agree.

He might be right about it 'ruining the game' but he is wrong about the rankings not being indicative of future performance. There is a strong correlation between rankings and performance.

I don't really see how it ruins the game. these kids don't get paid(officially). That is the big injustice in college football. everything else is secondary.
