Now wait just a damn minute.

I was assured earlier that there was a gigantic media conspiracy that overrates every player that has chosen to play for Texas in the history of ever.

Did SI not get the check in the mail?

Stoops doing work. And I wonder if they factor Josh Allen and Wagner being 2 stars and both led the league past 2 years in the SEC with an sacks?

Last 4 years LSU average class finish is 7.25
Last 4 years Fla average class finish is 11.50

LSU has finished 2nd, 7th, 15th and 5th. That is supposed to put them in 20th place somehow?

I think they are grading where the recruits show up to campus and how they are developed and whether they get drafted.

Well they bump up former 2 stars who were hidden gems. They are kinda conflating talented and developed players. There are lightly recruited receivers who will get 1000 yards in college and still never sniff the NFL

re: SI ranks college football's most talented rosters
He is rating talent potential based on the composite star rating of the assumed roster of each team. It's a forward looking rating. The draft only comes into play when determining if a player is counted or not for the upcoming season (ie, is he still on the team or not).

That doesn't really do much to explain the results, but that's what the link says.

Eta
This is also a Michigan homer, so that probably explains why teams like Indiana, Purdue, and Minn are seemingly way higher than expected. I imagine that subjective and arbitrary boost in rating is largely concentrated in the Big 10.
