You can't argue that Iowa didn't have a double recruiting class benefit for three years.
    Fine, I'll acknowledge all of that - Brands had an advantage when the VT guys transferred; he never has won a championship without that advantage. I'd also acknowledge that the Iowa comparison is still irrelevant to whether PSU benefited. None of that changes the fact that PSU benefited from a double recruiting class. Even if Taylor is the only guy in the class, he's a sophomore that has gone 2-1 in two years, and looks to be on his way to 2-1-1-1.

    Then every time a single guy transfers from one school to another, the receiving coach has the benefit of a double recruiting class. It doesn't make any sense and takes all the meaning out of "recruiting class".

    I don't disagree with that. If the coach changes schools then it's a bit more of a direct cause and effect (true recruiting) though.
