recruiting is more than something shitty coaches like Sark or Black Sark or Taggs use to deflect from 7-5 seasons one after another. Recruiting was used to keep Ty for 2008. For that alone all recruiting boards should have been shut down and recruiting experts should have been sent to re education camp.
To be fair, for the better part of 15 years we were told that we would suck but were loading up and we'd be great the year after next.
Now that we have a competent coach, and no he isn't a genius, he's a football coach for fucks sake, the ability to recruit top talent actually matters since this staff has coached up the dreck that was left behind and developed the scrappy hard working recruits that they have got so far.
Now you can be reasonably confident that Pete and his crew would know what to do with it.
It's like James after the 86 Sun Bowl when he realized Bama's left tackle would be the fastest player on our team. He completely revamped recruiting again and sent his minions out to recruit the 91 national champs.
Its fine if Petermen laughs at recruiting rankings and gives fetter shit as long as he is going after and GETTING the best guys out there. He does need to factor that into his process for his assistants.
James fired Dan Dorazio a shitty O line coach and brought in Gilby. When Pinkle left Gilby stepped up to OC. Gilbly was such a horrible head coach most folks forget that he was an idiot savant with the O line. Rick brought him back to piece together the 200 Rose Bowl line
It all matters now. This program can either keep moving forward or just be satisfied at the last couple of years. We know the school doesn't give a shit as long as the mob isn't outside with pitchforks. The question is does Petermen burn with the fire of a thousand suns to make this a legit power?
