You nailed on the recruiting. These arguments about how a team would do in

a P5 conference are so stupid and rarely thought out at all by those disparaging them.

sure in a one season in the league scenario they might fail. but put a traditionally good smaller program with a good coach in a P5 and watch that tree grow and fruit. success breeds success. the crappy P5 teams suck because they cant get out of their own way most of the time. Everyone argues that Wazzou cant be good because no one wants to play there. UVA cant succeed because we are too tough on academics...the list goes on. but almost every crappy P5 school has had some seriously good runs of success which proves it can be done.

take a school like App State, that is already good, football crazy, and a freaking amazing campus, and throw them in the ACC. pretty sure they would succeed. Wake is
