The coach is in his sixties, is making millions, is here only because he has no better options, and preserves his health through frequent naps.
My allegiance is to my future fellow alums... always has been.
HJS, you constantly complain about the crappy recruits who eventually enroll and will be future fellow alums. You're just as bad.
You just put him in a logic box.
Did IB ever let the Knife of Asia out of that logic box?
A northeastern logic box isn't fit to hold the contents of a happy meal...
And making fun of no talent, no 'other-offer' recruits is different from supporting the matriculation of D1-level scholar athletes...
Jerry York accurately described coaching as 80% recruiting. When being delivered Shinkie-caliber prospects, while being assuaged "its ok he used to play semi pro baseball" there is no choice but to lampoon.
