OSU is ranked 2nd nationally Michigan is ranked 9th Wisconsin is 13th in recruiting

Do perform better, relative to recruiting rankings, than Michigan does?

What I mean is, based on our rankings we’re supposed to be bad, but last year we went to a bowl. Michigan was 9-4, but with consistent top 10 classes shouldn’t something like 11-2 be their expectation?

This year is weird for everyone, but assuming we played OSU we’d both be 2-4 most likely.

Our FPI rank last year was 65 and michigan's was 12. This seems about in line with expectations based on recruiting.

Wisconsin churning out top 15 classes now is that a scary thought for Illinois fans? PC has a 2021 class that on paper looks very similar to PSU's 2020 and 2019 classes.OSU and Wisc are the only teams in the conference in 2021 cycle with a 5 star recruit. PC has taken their recruiting to the next level.

Are those places easier to recruit to than Illinois? why is recruiting so bad at Illinois
Yeah, OSU and Wisconsin churn out NFL stars left and right, and Michigan has the football history. We have no history of producing NFL talent and no history of winning football games. We will have to find a coaching staff that can get wins with under-valued 3 star recruits, and produce NFL draft picks from them, before we can find consistent success recruiting.

Why am I blanking on what PC stands for?

If he’s medically cleared, no reason we shouldn’t give him a call.

I saw a couple commits, Snyder and Edwards atleast, say they’re signing in February. Assume this is just waiting out to see if lovie makes it through?

Regardless of what happens with Lovie get ready for some changes. If Lovie is gone the attrition may look rough at first, but even if he stays there will be attrition.
