Though I hoped the B1G would fair better in this tournament, the results testify to the undeniable fact that the B1G has had atrocious recruiting over the last five years. If you go back to the 2008 recruiting classes, the B1G has had a TOTAL of 26 top 50 recruits through the 2013 season and only 9 top 10 recruits (by hoopgurls criteria). By comparison, every year there has been at least one SECOND TIER BCS league team that has gotten at least as many top 50 recruits as the whole B1G has gotten in any given recruiting season (ie. 2009: B1G = 3 top 50, Rutgers = 2 (top 10) and 4 (top 30), 2010: B1G = 3 top 50, USC = 1 (top 25), 2 (top 50). These are SECOND TIER BCS league teams! How on earth do we expect this league to compete (certainly in the context of the Gophers prospects) when the recruiting differential is the lopsided?
