Edited the poll to spell Chiaverini right.
Combination of facilities and Chev for the new overall coordination of recruiting.
+ player recruiting too tbh. Guys are buying the hype and selling it to others.
I put Coach DC but it is really a combination of several things. I just think he is the biggest factor. I think his presence has fired up JMFL even more. Whatever coaching changes may or may not be in our future we need to hold on to these two guys.
Looks good now, needs to look good next February.
Exciting today. Long time to signing day. A bad season and come January we will be debating which Unrated, short, skinny athlete is the better turd to round out our 87th ranked class.
Recruiters matter. Period.
Yep. The facilities are a great tool to have in the box. It matters. But you've got to have people who can use that tool or it goes to waste.
The new facilities are absolutely huge but Walters was doing a very subpar job selling it even with them mostly done. Chev has jumped all-in and motivated this staff to get things rolling. These guys aren't messing around. The facilities are a huge sell but without someone properly selling, you don't get ****. We have both and I would choose it as 50-50.
Memory lane: last year at this time we were obsessing over new uniforms.
This year uniforms aren't even mentioned in the poll.
How about an option for all of the above.
And they can recruit better when they have something to sell.
I voted facilities #1, then Chiv. Kids like new stuff, especially really nice new stuff. BTW since Skiddy brought it up, they still need to add a gold jersey to the mix of Allsome uniform choices
I select option #5 : All of the above
Theirs not to reason why, theirs but to do and die
Higher expectations. Until now, HCMM targeted San Jose-level recruits. Guys like JMFL and Chev are smart enough to know that those level of athletes are never going to cut it in the Pac12.
This is one of my main beefs with MMac...bringing in a MWC mentality to the PAC12. He brought a below average staff and with it below average recruiting. I think he thought he could target MWC level talent and coach them up. Ugh. The turnaround would be further along if it weren't for his initial bad decisions IMO.
As McElwain showed, you must recruit above your conference and have coaches that belong in your conference. He knew he needed P5 coaches at UF, so he said, thanks for the help, got to get better coaches/recruiters. The ventriloquist in this is Rick George whether people believe it or not. He is helping to pull the strings and say, cut bait on the dead weight. Bernardi seems like a waste of a staff member. You want a young stud coaching where he is, not a guy that has fallen out of favor with OL group.
Totally agree. I wonder if part of MMac's reason for keeping his staff was that he didn't want to have to train coaches on his system, philosophy and culture...maybe he thought let's keep what works...at least worked there.
He overestimated it, it is common. It's tough to cut people that helped you get somewhere but sometimes you have to realize in order to keep moving up, you have to improve the people around you. It looks like he understands this. I like Mac, just was not pleased with how last year transpired. Stayed stagnant.
That's another beef I have with him. All we heard about in the spring and fall was how they were going to finish games etc and then to come out and have the team drop a turd like in Hawaii and then choke like usual in winnable games really pissed me off. It's tough to know where coaching ends and playing begins, but he's gotta take some of the blame for that fiasco. This team's identity as chokers only solidified last year. Ugh.
