It’s not all about spending, as Ohio State has the best results without spending the most. Every school increased its budget compared to its 5-year average, with Michigan increasing by almost $1 million, the most in the conference.
Also, you have to wonder if the top recruiting school in the conference, OSU, got closer to the top of the conference in spending and even with the national leaders, how much better would the results would actually be? The Buckeyes already are the best recruiting school in the Big Ten and typically top 5 nationally without the biggest budget, so is it worth the extra spending?
Hard to say given the results, but if Ohio State wants the mythical recruiting crown, it might be forced to up its spending.
