They overtly said they weren't going for 5 stars. Only 4

stars with 3 stars as backups. I don't agree with them, but it is indeed their strategy the past 3 or so years:

1) Overtly avoid Florida - Georgia instead
2) Get 2 deep across the board with 4 star players
3) Fill gaps with 3 stars
4) Go after few long hanging fruit 5 stars: OL primarily and then Hayes type guys that were injured and considered damaged goods by many even though rated as a 5 star

Per Polian, they will attempt to go after higher ranked players in the 2020 class because they believe they have enough 4 star depth now that they can afford to swing and miss.

And even if they could, they’ll never come to a place like south bend when the alternative is to play for home state U.

and having sex with their girlfriends during class. They get decent grades at school just because the overworked teachers are just happy that they aren't too disruptive in class.


I love the way failure is rationalized away by some.... *
