Are the juices that you see starting to flow, orange juice or lemonade?
So far, I see no real improvement in our over all recruiting. Do you? As we
continue to recruit like a G5 team, our growth as an Independent P5 team
is stunted, and the 2017 season is evidence at least in part.
There is a person on this site, that I respect vert much and value his opinion,
that challenges me on this issue. He says, "How can this fantasy of mine,
getting more 4-5 star players come true. (I paraphrase because I don’t
remember the exact words).
My answer comes in almost ever post I write. Please read them, It’s all
amount commitment and the money that backs up that commitment.
I respectfully disagree with you that this 2018 season will be a getting back
to basics year. While BYU states that our HC is not on the Hot Seat,
national magazines have him listed as #5 in the nation for being on the
Hot Seat. BYU admits in part, that the seat he sits on is getting Warm.
The HC can not afford to treat 2018 as a getting back to basic year. He
must have his assistants and Coordinators come up with some real changes,
lest they suffer a stroke or otherwise departure.
No more nonsense of losing to teams ranked at 100 or below. Yes, we can
lose to Arizona, Cal, Washington, Wisconsin, Utah, and yes, even Boise State,
and we can still survive and the coaches can still survive if we lose respectfully
where the Press can say that BYU gave them a heck of a fight. It looks like
they are on the way back.
And just as importantly, we must not lose to any of those other G5 teams.
In fact, we must dominate over all of those other G5 teams as much or more,
than the P5 teams we played dominated over us. If that is not the case.
We desperately need changes, not only from the coaches and players, but
from the decision makers that control then purse strings when it comes to
