I know it might be heresy to say so, but hear me out. Let me preface this by saying if this was Oregon's class 5-10 years ago I would be ecstatic with today's haul, but times have changed. Oregon is coming off a Rose Bowl victory this year, a BCS title game appearance and near win last year, and another Rose Bowl appearance two years back along with three conference titles in a row. So why is this class ranked the 15th best in the country? How did Oregon finish 4th in the conference in recruting rankings (according to Rivals), and did so behind UCLA (12th)??? Even USC (7th) who was thought to be truly hampered by the sanctions romped.
The point is that in 2011 recruiting, Oregon finished 9th and 2nd in the conference, in 2010 they were 13th and 4th in conference. So why are things regressing at this point? I figured the continued buzz we always hear about the uniforms, the beautiful facilities, and the recent excellence would lift the Ducks ever higher. Help me see the light on this fellas as to me something is not quite right with this picture.
