I am sure you did this somewhere already but could you list how you got all the stars. Then I sure would like to start a debate on whose class is better....I'm sure things will change, but is a 3 star better than a 2 star and a 1 star? Or is that just opinion?
Words of wisdom from an unwise man.

So let's say you get a recruit who's a 1:56.05 in the IM and a 59.99 in the Breast. His IM is 99% of a B cut, which automatically qualifies him to be a 3 Star. His 100 breast is only a 97% cut, meaning he doesn't move up to the next level. Had his breast time been faster than 59.38, the 99% time, he would have been a 4 Star. Make sense?

Then I sure would like to start a debate on whose class is better....I'm sure things will change, but is a 3 star better than a 2 star and a 1 star? Or is that just opinion?[/quote]

Everyone will disagree, especially when it comes to conference recruit classes where depth and bodies can become more of a factor. Generally speaking however, you get to nationals with your top guys. Rarely do relays make it in without a top guy on there. The debates will be interesting, but this gives something to look at though.
