This article hits on the reasons that rankings are important. IMO, you certainly can find Div. 1 football players that are even unranked but it is a statistical exercise - If a recruiting class has 25 - 2 star player you may get 6 who are BCS starting quality players but is your class is 25 - 3 star and above players you will probably get 12 plus who are starting caliber players. I certainly believe that CU has some quality players but I also believe that having enough quality players will be an issue. Even teams with good recruiting can have issues with injuries (OU last year) and other defections. CU has had too many reaches to fill out the recruiting classes in the last couple of years, IMO, to have sufficient depth unless they get really lucky with some of those players. What are your toughts?
