Yeah folse, I think you missed the boat a little on this one.
First of all I ain't so sure about either's coaching. I questioned alot of Trent's here and the jury IMHO is still out on Johnny, but looks like he's gonna have to show more than he has here to this point to earn "good bench coach" marks.
But Johnny can recruit, he's got an assistant on staff who is a proven pretty successful recruiter and the recruiting landscape here in B.R. and Louisiana will be much more friendly and fruitful than it has been in recent years.
Recruiting won't be the overlying issue for Jones IMHO.

the women are doing great. They are only behind Vandy by less than 10 pts. The only bad thing is that 2 starters for the 2nd time in about the last 3 games are scoreless with 15 minutes left in the game. Otherwise we are experiencing another moral victory.
