Great recruits? You're thinking too recent. In 2003 their class wasn't even ranked. Prior to 2008 their classes were in the 15-range.
If they're still "underachieving" in 2-3 years, then we'll have a talk. I really like their past 2 recruiting classes so I doubt that'll happen though.
Sorry, I wasn't being sarcastic. Up until recently Ohio State has done pretty well at recruiting and putting out NFL talent. Winning a NC and losing 2 others while continually dominating your conference isn't exactly underachieving unless you consistently rake in top 5 classes and **** out high-achieving NFL players.
