The rankings don't matter nearly as much as the personnel you get to fit what you're trying to do. Yes, getting talented players is a must to win championships; but focus on filling your with the best players available. Bobby Bowden used to call it "getting our share". Muschamp is getting his.
Whether the class is ranked #1 or not, to me, is irrelevant. As long as the majority of your classes finish somewhere in the top 5 to top 10 you'll have the talent to do whatever you want to. We have a strong class, full of guys who are absolute ballers.
"I can shoot threes now. I can finesse you. I can dunk on you. I can guard anything, and I'm rebounding better. When I block shots I catch the ball. I can post you up with my back to the basket and hit you with a post move. Or I can face you up and use my quickness to blow by you." - Chris Walker
