FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Patriots QB Darren Werner gave us a little blast from the past when he threw for 475 yards and 5 touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in preseason week 2.

    I feel like Charlotte is way too high on this list and Rice is way too low

     

    When doing the rankings I thought the same thing and pondered a different type of ranking to show how good their class was.  Maybe removing all the players who were 3.0 and less, but that doesn't really help.  Maybe we can come up with another formula to help bigger classes not be penalized by all the walkons they get.  I am very open to advice for formulas.  It's the 2 star system we use that makes it so difficult.  Is a 1.0 of 5.0 better than a 2.5 of 4.0 and so on.

    I think removing the Jucos might be a good idea too.  They skew the rankings pretty badly.
