They are Bull. The Wall Street Journal shows you why.
Four of the ten teams in BCS bowls have no players in the Top 100 of their classes. None.
Iowa and Ga. Tech have two each.
Neither Ingram or McCoy were Top 100. How is that possible?
The rankings are bull because they are self-fulfilling. If a kid isn't being recruited by, say, Texas, then he must not be any good. Therefore, he isn't Top 100. See how that skews everything?
Just step away.
