Kiffin has also managed to lose one of the nation's top recruits to a conference rival despite numerous and seemingly invaluable advantages, lost a recruit to UCLA after swaying him briefly despite the Bruins upstaging their own miserable season with some woeful recruiting, and performed the likely unprecedented trick of reportedly facing NCAA sanctions for work done at a previous school while serving as the head coach of a school currently under NCAA punishment ... for violations committed while he was an assistant coach at that school.

Entering his second season, Quinn added 20 players, including every position, from 10 different states and two provinces in Canada. The class is heavy on line of scrimmage players with a total of eight linemen, five on the offensive side and three on the defensive side. The class also features three defensive backs and a pair of quarterbacks and running backs. Three recruits – Gabriel Barbe, Dillon Guy and Wyatt Cahill – enrolled at UB in January and are on campus now.

When you lose games 55-7, 59-7, 45-10 and 48-14 and finish with a 3-9 record, there is no way you're supposed to be able to finish with the fifth-best recruiting class in the Big 12. But that's exactly happened at Kansas on Wednesday. The Jayhawks finished ahead of traditional power Texas A&M and bitter rivals Kansas State and Missouri.
