Nice job Eleven.  I guess that finally puts to rest what university TRULY is "DBU" , huh?  cc: LSU

1st Round Defensive Back Selections:
LSU: 5
Ohio State: 5.......in the last three years alone (13 overall, just FYI)

I don't know who originally started that myth, but LSU is definitely not DBU.

16 Red Bulls keeps a man awake when he has writing and researching on his brain. Right Knoch?

Caffeine + a job that requires a lot of "sit and wait" = this research

Interesting that UF is so high, still. Would love to see this broken out by head coach.  Clearly you'd see Coaches Meyer, Carroll and Saban at the top, along with Bowden.  Based on the Buckeyes success  from 2000-2010, Tressell might even be in the Top 5.

Now that you mention it, I might eventually break each school down by coaching tenure.

Florida has remained consistent for this stretch because even when they didn't have elite coaching (Spurrier/Meyer), they had great recruiting (Zook/Muschamp). Then again, schools in Florida altogether practically recruit themselves due to weather and the depth of talent so close by.

Saban is truly doing wonders at Alabama. Before 2009, the school had only finished in the top-10 ONCE. Since then, it is on the longest streak (10 years) of top-10 finishes since the beginning of the seven round era (2nd being 8 years by Miami between 2000-2007).

Thanks for reading! I really appreciate the commentary.

I'm surprised to see USC so high. They were awesome in the Carroll years, but that was a minority of the last 25 years.

USC, Florida, and Miami follow similar patterns. Each had times in which they were dominant, and times in which they are almost insignificant. But no matter what, they all come from talent-rich states with climates that are appealing to top-end recruits.

Great stuff, good read. Turns out the Buckeyes put some talent into the league pretty regularly.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
