    • Well, let's be honest. Their ability to play games is 2-3 months shorter than it is down there. Their schedule has to end by October 1st and doesn't get to start until mid-March. So the players are easily a fully puberty year behind Southern and West Coast players by the time they hit college.  Then, they get to college and have to spend most, if not all, their non-conference schedule down here... with the school spending money on travel and not getting revenue from: - Home games - Your internal game broadcast (yeah, Disney will pay to air it on ESPN+, but you don't get revenue from "Hometown Ford" sponsoring "Your Drive of the Game" or the local ADT installer with the "Home Defense POTG") ... and instead spending about $200/day per player on room, meals, travel, etc. Amazing to say about the "Mighty Big 10" but we probably can offer the guy more money and he already has relationships with players.
