Hopeful he brings toughness as well as we see successful teams like a Michigan State and Tech and Virginia emphasizing serious D toughness.
But will take major plans for recruiting.
Seems it was said this was HY’s main concern with Mike together with his teams appearing soft (I don’t have attribution on his saying we were soft just seems I saw that characterization here somewhere)
I suspect the remainder of the 2019 class will be transfers; Muss knows how to get them, he doesn’t know the people we were recruiting (and they don’t know him). If they retain Scottie, that may help, but early in his UA tenure I expect more of a transfer focus; that portal is gonna get a workout at BWA. Getting people with a chip on their shoulder because their first school didn’t work out is not all bad.
No, I’m not implying he cheats. His Nevada roster included transfers from all over the country – NC State, Old Dominion, Wagner, Southern Illinois. He was able to sell these guys on starting over in Reno, Nevada, and buying in to his personality, his program and his style of play.
I posted this a couple of days ago. Other than being a great player for us,is Scotty known to be great recruiter? I sure hope we didn’t make it a part of the deal that he had to kept. A coach should get to chose his assistants and other staff. If he retains Scotty or Melvin great but it needs to his choice not part of the deal
While I hope EM - if he is hired - he keeps Scotty on simply because I like him and have a good relationship with him, I don’t like at all ADs dictating who is going to be on a staff - whether the guy has been here eight years or he is new.
