Rivals released their final 2020 rankings recently and outside of discovering that this event will really make the tears flow on Twitter, there are some other more important things that we can learn here.
Many will say that rankings don’t matter. I am not one of them. The recruiting media will protect, defend and applaud their ranked players and the schools that land them like a mother hen.

This practice will catapult one college football player over another, at times without merit, simply because the wave has moved in that direction.
