No question, the players make the difference.I'll just remind you all that we won a national championship with a coach I would describe as "great recruiter, questionable game day coach".
College football is 90% recruiting. I'll take great recruiter/mediocre game day over the opposite 10 times out of 10.
Problem with Mel is that when it comes to playing his recruits overall look better on paper than they do on the field. Attrition rate is high and a lot don't live up to their hype.
