For example, look at recruiting. ATL made the point that there is a prototypical base from which every class should be drawn. I'm not saying that this will work every year, but at least it's a plan, which is more than I can say for BC right now. Our two biggest areas on weakness last year were D-Line and RB. We took one defensive lineman, who may turn out to be a great player, but his only other offer was from Temple. Similarly, we took one RB, who only drew interest from UConn and Maryland, receiving offers from neither of them. Again, I hope both of these guys turn out to be great players, but there's nothing like putting all your eggs in one basket here. It's just difficult to swallow the official line from the AD's office that one of the several problems with Jags was that he wasn't very interested in recruiting when his successor brings BC recruiting to lows we haven't seen since the 90s.
There just isn't any question that Spaz isn't the long-term answer here and the sooner we make a change, the sooner we can move on. Just wait until we play Miami in the fall and let's see how this team has progressed against Al Golden's squad.
