+1. I agree with this. I mean, it's like how certain college basketball teams are always in the upper echelon in rankings, year after year, after year. Because they have that tradition, and therefore, the best recruits have an interest in it.
That doesn't mean a team like Western Kentucky can't pop up every once in a while and be better than the Dukes/UNCs/UCLAs, it just means that consistently, those schools are the very top, b/c they DO have that history.
