The landscape is much, much different now than the last 40 years. We need name recognition, someone who can excite the boosters so that we can make a splash in the portal with NIL. Northeast ties are nice, but all that matters now to recruits is how much they can get paid. That's it.
The game is played in the trenches still. Syracuse needs to stop cupping farts and trying to be something it isn't. We are a northeast school who depends on northeastern recruits and interest to be successful.
1. we tried to be USC===FAIL
2. Dino tried to make us fast and Baylor-ish=A fail because we're not fast at all. He's almost made us slow.
Bob Chesney would be intriguing to me. I'd take Don Brown too even at 65 years old. Guy opened Michigan up to the pipeline in New England in a big way.
I think we're seduced by how Prime Time, SEC schools are doing it. We're Never going to be those schools. We'll win with Tim Greens staying home, not finding a guy who comes from Texas looking for his bag.
