From 2008 - 2014 - the ACC recruiting classes national rank, - per Rivals - averaged for the period - show FSU at #6 - UM at #16.- CU at #17 - VT at #24 and GT at #53.
Won - Loss records, conference games only for the same period have FSU at 35-13, VT at 35-13, CU at 34-14 GT at 31-17, and UM at 27-21.
Power rankings which take into account the Strength of Schedule are what I look at instead of win-loss. That takes into account who you played, where you played and what the final score was.
In the last four years (2010-2013), we have ended the season with a 71st, 45th, 55th and 40th Power Ranking. http://www.jhowell.net/cf/cfindex.htm
That is a 52.75 average. So we are playing to about the level of our recruiting. It is a coincidence the numbers come out so close given the typical wide spread, but we have been mediocre. We recruit good players; teams above us recruit better players. It is what it is.
