Once upon a time, there was a legendary Lafayette message board poster called carney , who came up with a way to attempt to rate, in a somewhat unbiased manner, Patriot League recruiting classes. For years he posted his spreadsheet-based evaluations on the Any Given Saturday message board, and his somewhat dry, humorous description of the methodology and the rating. For hardcore Patriot League fans, it was an important, must-read part of the offseason. For the second straight season, his Patsy ratings will be published here at LFN. In the upcoming weeks, I'll be going through the data and coming up with the rankings. But before I do, I wanted to recap with a quick blog posting to describe exactly what it is we're doing here.
