Great post. So much truth in so few words. And the perfect balance of painful reality and well-founded optimism for the future. Your post isn't negative or pessimistic or whiny - it's saying what is true to this point. In any effort, seeing where you are is only seeing where you have to start to build.I love Nebraska, and I'm very bullish about the future,... but you're probably even over-exaggerating to say "middle-of-the-road kind of program" at this point for the vast majority of recruits. ...
Exactly. I think it it will look just like this example - not really looking like a leader for lots of blue chips until at the end, when the kinds of advantages MABC pointed out this staff will work finally make the difference, incrementally, one solid recruit at a time - for us for a while.I am not concerned from the standpoint that that is about the same thing that has happened the past 20 years. Glass is half full response tho is Noa Pola-Gates was "cool" for quite awhile on us on some of those sites and we got his commitment.
Frost and staff have so much work to do. But while it's true that nothing is certain until it's done, it feels like we finally have a staff with a clue and some skills. Nothing good ever comes easy though. If Frost can turn NU into the kind of contender that blue chips are consistently and readily drawn to, it will be a great achievement.
