All I have is Hope

So once again I was researching some recruiting stats (football this time) and came upon the 2009, 2010, and 2011 recruiting BIG rankings. Did you guys realize that we have finished 11th, 7th, and 11th in 2009, 2010, and 2011 respectively? I support our guys on the field 100% and am proud to be a Boiler. I normally don't put a lot of stock in the "stars" tacked on to someones name because we've all seen what hard work and determination will do in a black and gold uniform, but stil, leaves you wondering. When will Hope land a big name recruit? IU historically has had one of the worst college football programs around and yet they still managed to land the number 1 QB in the nation. How can you not sell the CoQ (Cradle of Quarterbacks) and DoDE (Den of Defensive Ends) not be enough to show the big time kids that we can get them into the NFL? What are your thoughts? Also if someone knows why my internet won't let me write these blogs in the Visual view please reply.
