Regardless, Knight is going to be a short term hire, but he would likely be able to attract the talent and make Georgia competitive. If there isn't somebody to carry the torch after Knight, it will be a disaster.
Well, Knight is more about recruiting the kind of players that fit his system. He certainly has talented players, but he's not really known as a top notch recruiter because he doesn't bother with your typical stars. I agree with you, if some kind of succession plan was put in place, it could work. But I honestly can't see his ego allowing him to do that, and this is coming from a huge fan of Coach Knight.
