A few years ago our coaches decided that we wanted to be the Kentucky of college football in that we were going to sell to our players that they would come in, play early, and get the the next level ASAP. The coaches openly admitted this with quotes like they want guys who would be 3 year players.
I thought at the time it was an interesting strategy, it certainly plays on the right buttons of a high school prospect and there was really no way to know if it would work or not at the time. It was a completely new idea.
I'm not ready to say that strategy was a failure yet, either. It certainly lends itself to having to rebuild a little more than just reload, but I want to see how we do next season before calling the idea a failure. I applaud them for at least trying to be innovative.
