A couple of positive things first…
- I like Coach B as a personality
- I like the kind of players he recruits… seem to be solid young men who generally stay out of trouble (at least moreso than kids at other programs)
- I like exciting football… the crazier the scheme, the more entertained I am
- I don’t think we’ll ever out-recruit LSU, A&M, Alabama, Tennessee, or even Ole Miss… our in-state high school programs and population base are just too far behind
Recall the primary concern when Coach B was hired… he has a smash mouth style, but we can’t recruit the players that it takes to win that way, so will he win here?
Seems that is proving to be right.
I really wish we had a coach whose philosophy was centered around doing crazy things to give low-talent teams an advantage. I think Mike Leach does that… CBP did that… I think Malzahn does that.
That’s my only concern about CBB… I just don’t think he’ll ever get the talent to make his system work.
