This whole HJS stupidity of Addazio recruiting worse than Spaz is horseshit. You inevitably lose a few recruits from coaching changes, particularly when you completely clean house with the staff (which the fact that only Washington remains is a very very good thing). HJS is being a moron for believing that if Addazio was a good recruiter he would have significantly improved this class come signing day. Look at Golden's 2011 class, it sucks, and arguably worse than Spaz's 2011 class. At best Addazio would land maybe one or two quality recruits in 2013. The real test is for the 2014 class, and I have reasons to believe Addazio will do a very good job.
Patchan is huge if he stays healthy. And that's a big if. Wen isaw he commited, I first thought Spadazzio deserved some props for beating out tOSU. After I thought about it, the more reasonable explanation was that OSU wasn't interested and BC was his only choice because his health is a major liability.
If Addazio wasn't the coach, he wouldn't have even considered BC, he deserves credit for that
