and more the relative decline of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey as pipelines of a lot of talent compared to the Sun Belt. I think that's a fair argument to make but it's just one small piece of the puzzle. Ohio still produces a lot of talent, and Pennsylvania and New Jersey, while not as good as they once were, are still in the top ten or top fifteen of high school football states.

Even when the CCL was at its height, ND never cleaned up there - the Big Ten was also at its peak - and never relied heavily on it.
