For a program that rarely if ever wins on a large scale or anything of consequence, Tennessee still manages every few years to haul in an unbelievable recruiting class, and I'm always left pondering how they manage to do it? I confess that much I like I believe Ole Miss managed to haul in its monster class last year by opening up the proverbial checkbook, I assume Tennessee has done the same. Any of you recruiting gurus have any better reasons? Disclaimer: I've hated Tennessee for sometime as being a poser in the big-time college football scene, and also because over the years they've managed to beat OU in a few head to head recruiting battles, and even managed to snag Robert Meachem out of Oklahoma years back. Addition: I feel much the same way about Clemson, though without the recruiting losses to them that we've had to Tennessee.
