    Did he just decommit 24 hours after committing?

This is the only year all of our coaches won't meet players as a coach from the sunbelt.
    Well that's a wrong way to view things IMO.

    First they were all, except for Des, recruiting for other programs. Those programs, in many instances, were recruiting for different positions, and players of need.

    In addition they may have had to unsell kids in programs they'd already decided to go to. That's not easy.

    I'm tickled pink with the progress they've made. The time to doubt the staff only comes a couple years down the road if these kids mostly turn out to be duds.

    The Starkville OL that just committed was being recruited by looney at miss state. All these coaches were visiting high schools and looking at players before they got here. They go to these schools every year. They have the relationships. They didn't start from scratch. Alonzo Harris, ringo, Hamilton were all guys Hud and staff were on at their previous schools and brought them here. Why do you think Gooden is even considering us? Because somebody on this staffs previous relationship.

    I get that but it's not a cold call, they have the relationship which if any of you are in sales know that's what matters. They aren't some stranger selling a strange program. They have kids who already trust them.

    Still a hat trick to come off as genuine when the product you are selling has changed.

    Of course they do, that's why you hire them and pay them the money they are making. When you hire a coach, you get his recruiting contacts as part of the package. The difference is you are selling to a SBC program that has fallen back from it's previous status instead of a P5 program.

    What are we even discussing here?

    Coaches have relationships with kids all over. Not a revelation. The SEC programs sell themselves. This is a whole new challenge for these coaches.

    And that's where having the kids trust comes in, they trust the coach isn't going to lead them to a shthole, they trust that coach has their best interest in mind and a plan. It' will never be easier to sell an unknown vision than right now. Next year this staff will have results that will speak for themselves which may be great,good mediocre or bad. I think this staff will put together a very good class and the "big gets"will mostly be with kids they already had relationships with. They got a late start recruiting here but They didn't start from square 1. I think some people, not directed at you, are underestimating the advantage some of our coaches have in year one coming from bigger programs. I've read a lot of people that think we will have a mediocre or subpar class because of the late start. I personally dont think that way.

    No problem, I believe it'll be the starting lineup and all programming from 3-7. The new local show with Brad Topham begins next week as well.
