True. Maybe we can get a younger coach that does both above average that has higher-ceiling potential. Or maybe a more experienced coach who develops players very well but is an average recruiter. I guess I am deviating from the question though. If I had to pick between the attribute of outstanding developer or outstanding recruiter, I would choose the outstanding developer 10 times out of 10.Certainly aren’t mutually exclusive, but people are fooling themselves if we are going to get an established person who does those things in Lincoln. They are at Duke, Michigan state, etc.
Outstanding development gives you a chance to be consistently good. An outstanding recruiter (not at a blue blood) will probably get you an occasional really good season, there will be frequent dips between seasons. Good topic, SSO.
