    Andy Staples: Proximity to recruits translates to success

    I found this article by Andy Staples of SI.com interesting. He apparently has been tracking where geographically the top college recruits come from and compared it to the schools which typically have the most success. Not suprisingly, if your school is surrounded by top-notch high school talent, your changes of having a very good college football team are greatly enhanced.

    Staples uses Nebraska as an example of a school that has had success over the years in a geographical area without a whole lot of high school talent.

    Here is the link:
