I don’t disagree. Yes, Pitt has more talent, but there is not a single school in NYS, the northeast or Mid-Atlantic powerhouse where SU has a significant enough presence to be in consideration for their players. We all know how our NYC and Buffalo recruiting has been. We’re a non-factor in CT, MA, NH. Do we even go to Philly, DC, or Pitt anymore?
Look at Pitt’s roster as an example. They have pipelines into top schools in Florida on top of their usual PA pipelines, the DMV, Jersey, Akron, and VA Beach area. Our roster is a hodgepodge of American diamonds from wherever we can find them. That’s resource intensive.
