I wouldn't be quite so quick to assume Murphy is breaking the rules.

Sure, it's reasonable to ask the question when one coach is getting so many more top tier recruits than the other seven.

But it's also possible that Murphy is simply doing a better job of recruiting Winning begets recruiting success which of course leads to more winning. Murphy's got a recruiting machine up and running, but there are benign explanations possible as well. To my knowledge, we don't know of any individual anecdotes where Murphy has broken any rules.

To me, the bigger take-away conclusion is that, for all his success with wins and losses, Murphy as a game day coach and strategist may actually be underperforming his talent advantage on the field.

It is POSSIBLE, you should admit, that Harvard sends more recruits to the NFL because:

(a) Murphy is a good recruiter and has experienced assistants who are also good recruiters;

(b) he clearly out-recruits Yale, which is always bragging in recent years about having the best recruiting classes; and

(c) he is a simply a good coach who prepares his players well for the Ivy League and beyond. All this is hard to admit, for many of you, I'm sure.

Isn't your response a paraphrase of what I said in my original post?

Why should I "admit" something that I've already proactively stated?
