I don't pay too much attention to the #83 ranking. ....

Overall - decent. Lacks any "star" power, but decent.
Funny, two years ago you were telling us that unless recruiting improved from our usual 60-70 ranking level, we would never improve:

Better donor support and $$$ can help to lead to better recruiting and more resources - which can help with winning and lead to a better TV contract that gives BYU even more resources. But it can be kind of a catch 22 - unless some donors step it up or the new coaching staff is able to improve recruiting and the on-field product with the same resources.
Both sides of that equation included improving recruiting somehow, and yet now you're telling us everything is fine after we drop 23 spots below where you were calling for improvement....

[url=http://cougarcorner.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 88#p223488]You also rated the 2016 class as a C back then, and called it insufficient:

One of the top non-P5 recruiting classes, but easily among the bottom wrung when compared to the P5. BYU needs 1 or 2 more elite recruits and a half-dozen more 3-star commits - and fewer 2-star guys - to improve to grade B recruiting class.
Now we land a #80+ class and it's "decent"...

So, what's changed?

I think the Bronco comparisons are going to happen as long as the current staff is under performing. Just like the Crowton vs Lavell comparisons happened all the way until Bronco got the team performing the way it should. Get used to it.
