    Interesting that in last 6 NCAA championships teams I think only 3 total NTDP alums: Joey Anderson, Shane Gersich, Will Butcher. Michigan has historically recruited program best since in their backyard. Only championship team was 1998, which I think was mostly Canadian and not yet heavy on NTDP. Maybe loading up on those kids isn’t a good idea, as tempting as they are.

    This assumes:

    1. The best team is the one that wins the national championship

    2. The issue with those teams is the relatively small percentage of NTDP players they have and not the majority of players that make up the rest of the roster.

    I’d say both of those assumptions are rarely true.
