It'd be interesting to see these trends over a decade or so;


I recall reading an article in Scholatic Sports Magazine that ranked the top 7 HS football states - I recall that Texas, Cali, Fla, Ohio, Penn, and New Jersey were on the list, I forget the 7th.


Now Texas, Cali, and Fla are no-brainers, and Ohio and Pennsylvania put out a nice amount of players every year, plus they have such a great history, but I was baffled that Jersey made the list ahead of Michigan - especially as this was around the time that Andre Rison and Mark Ingram were playing in the pros and Bettis and Wheatley were starting RBs at ND, not to mention Mark Messner had very recently ended his eligibility as the Big Ten's all-time tackles for loss leader.


AND where NJ (and NY, for that matter) have all of ONE successful 1-A program ('Cuse), Michiganders make up a good chunk of Michigan State's roster, and pretty well stock MAC teams CMU, EMU, and WMU.


Sorry, Yooper expatriate ranting....
