Re: IU Football Coaching Search
Admittedly, I don't know word one about the college coaching scene, but it seems to me the biggest problem for Indiana is trying to compete in the Big Ten recruiting game, which I figure might require a coach of some notoriety. To which I say, Kevin who?
How many high school standouts know who he is? No matter how good a coach, that has to handicap him at least in his first few recruiting seasons. He would need to survive a few years, work a few minor miracles with the personnel on hand and compete in the Big Ten, with hopes that success would breed familiarity and desirability for the program, an uphill climb, to say the least. My prediction is this pick (if true) will be derided by the Hoosier faithful.
