As emy said, the ACC hasn't won a title in Iba in a long time. Heck, the A10 has 2 titles since the last time the ACC won one. While I agree that recruiting needs to be addressed, the sky is certainly not falling.
One simple change I have long believed in is a minimum recruiting effort for recruits with "stars". If for example you had a 2K per star minimum, then the big boys with the big budgets still get the edge, but schools would be much more likely to battle knowing that the school in question has at least 40-50K already invested in those 4-5 players as opposed to getting them on the cheap and leaving them able to poach later.
Alternatively, I would want "starred" players to contact other schools if they aren't feeling sufficient love. Can you imagine the #1 recruit in the country signing for a school with 1 campus visit and a scholly offer, simply because no one wanted to fight. In this situation, that recruit would e-mail severeal comparibly prestiged schools and say he's still open to offers.
Also, definitlely increase firings. In one world, one of my 2 destination jobs hasn't opened in 20 seasons despite not getting past the 1st round of the PIT in any of them.
