OK, so if he left, who gets the "blame?"
A coaching staff can't take the blame on a kid's decision. You can't make an assumption that a coaching staff doesn't take every possible angle to land that kid.
never said you'd have to blame anyone for a kid leaving.
Sometimes, our staff outworks others for kids from OOS...and those fanbases melt down.
Sometimes, our staff gets outworked by other staffs...and we melt down.
It's the way of the world, especially with recruiting.
It comes down to, what is the other staff selling to the kid that is working? And no, I'm not talking about anything monetary, so let's not turn this thread into something like that.
I've done my bashing of stud/ensminger for being dead weight, but they have shown that they've been able to provide [some] value on the recruiting trail.
Pretty much, it comes down to this. If it's an in-state kid, LSU should have the inherent advantage. Now, what LSU does with that is how they perform on the field, and off.
