I'm not sure what the big deal is about being listed as the #1 recruiting class - it really has nothing to do with our direction. What IS important are two key items: 1) LSU/Nick Saban is getting the players he is going after. I have witnessed MANY programs with #1 classes tank it three to four years later, when these players play. It doesn't do you a damn bit of good to have a "#1 recruting class" if you have the top five running backs in the country and no line to block for them, or defense or coach. 2) What we are now seeing is the choices of the players coming to LSU are turning down the other national programs. We used to have asprinkling of that of the Louisiana players, but now we're getting that from out of state players. Do y'all realize how big this is?
