LSU is able to pull recruits from the most fertile recruiting grounds in the country and has the benefit of being the flagship program in a loaded state. Florida State, no matter how good they are, will always have to compete with Florida and Miami for the top talent in the state. Then there is the SEC factor.
Also, bringing up basketball in your argument just proves how weak the ACC is at football.
LSU has to compete with multiple top teams. Period. It is absolutely asinine to think otherwise. And that does not mean LSU is the better job. You're literally saying LSU is the 'better' job because it's 'easier' to recruit. Because FSU has Miami and Florida in the same state it's automatically a worse job? Makes perfect sense.
