The Legend of Kevin Sumlin

-- Kevin Sumlin is the name people keep bantering about. It makes sense. He passed on the UCF opening and fits the profile of what Oregon was looking for when it hired Willie Taggart. Sumlin is a good recruiter. He's an upgrade as a coach over Taggart. I expect he will interview. Let's place him as the early favorite.

    Canzano's article just tells me Oregon is about to get it wrong again. "Oregon's contingency plan for Taggart is anchored in recruiting", "Sumlin is a good recruiter," etc.

    In his own column Canzano notes the importance of recruiting by stating that guys looking for jobs are still busy forging relationships with recruits. Guys *looking for jobs*. These "good recruiters" got FIRED because they aren't good coaches. Fuck if you can recruit! As much as the TSIO guys would disagree, it's not really about recruiting. Part of it is, sure. To get from a B+ to an A+ it's about recruiting. But look at the great coaches, and they were great (generally) before they got "their guys" in place. Peterman wasn't a "great recruiter" at Boise, he was a fucking great evaluator and developer. MSU under Saban wasn't winning the recruiting natty. Tedford at a Tuff Fresno team didn't just use a time machine to recruit a whole class and turn them into seniors in one year to turn that ship around.

    Les Miles recruited like a motherfucker, coaches like shit (okay, he's pretty good, but he was never going to be Saban or Urb). And so on, and so on. You need a HC that knows what the fuck he is doing, and he needs to hire *assistants* that can recruit.

    No one gives a fuck about Canzano or any of the worthless drivel he spooges. HTH.
