Recently, Florida coach Jim McElwain pronounced, “We’re a little bit better at O-line than we were a year ago.” If you’re a Florida fan, the phrase “a little bit” should scare the shit out of you. Florida’s 2015 offense defied words with its ineptitude.

2015 should have been the year to recruit big guys up front. Georgia started two seniors at the tackle spots who would graduate. Behind them sat just about nobody on the sidelines who could step in. Only six guys would play significant minutes for UGA’s OL in 2015 (Theus, Wynn, Kublanow, Pyke, and Houston with Sims mixing in).

I wanted to find out whether class size was predictive of success in the SEC. Using the 247 Composite Team Rankings from 2007-2016, I compiled… Continue reading Does Size Matter (in recruiting numbers)?
