With respect to the effort during the RRS, the only game this past year where a concerted effort was put forth for all 4 qtrs was the Holiday Bowl. I hope this "Boot Camp" continues for years to come.
This program will always get quality recruits. The question is, will the coaches take these athletes to the next level. I believe the staff is in place (GD???). Will Boot Camp stay in place?
Take 1 player out of the equation (Sir Vincent) and what has this program done in the last 10 years. Holiday and Alamo Bowls. VY was a very unique talent that MB decided to let Vince play his game. The decision worked, but how much talent was not motivated to step-up to VY's. The defense has really had great talent in my mind that didn't play up to their potential, I'll blame coaching and schemes.
You can get all the 5 Star recruits you want, but unless they buy into the "Team' concept, and proper coaching follows, we will continue to have 10 wins and Holiday Bowl experiences. Every position should be open, period...
Remember: Colt was a 3 Star!!!!!!!!!
P.S. Thank you UT/BB for Wed nights thrashing of OU.
