Recruiting rankings again? Someone ask Bill Snyder and 2012 Auburn about recruiting rankings.
While its true that recruiting rankings are a predictor of success (sorta like college entrance exams), I'd rather have a coach who consistently teaches sound fundamentals. Furthermore IMO schools should stop booting coaches who can consistently win 8-10 games (like Richt). Give it time and the right mixture can lead to success.
As fans we should stop expecting immediate gratification.
Ellis Johnson will definitely be teaching solid fundamentals on the defensive side of the ball and I don't think anyone doubts that Malzahn can create success with the offense. That's why we're feeling pretty good about our team... We obviously have the talent as far as "stars" and recruiting go; now we likely have the coaches to turn the talent into success.
And I agree... I'd love to have a coach like Richt that can have a good season every single year... I know UGA fans want the national championship but at least they're in the SEC hunt every year. Not many teams can say that.
