Recruiting, a bottom line

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for. And the escalating cost of recruiting in college football is nothing short of an arms race.

Nick Saban is one of the best recruiters in all the game, but he doesn't pick up the tab. In his three years at Alabama, he has delivered two top-ranked classes. On Wednesday, his fourth group of recruits will easily finish in the top 5. Saban also spends way more jack than his predecessor on the job of attracting high school talent. That's one reason why he's so much better at it.
