PS--we'll never know whether Tyler Bertram would have come here, because SU didn't actively pursue him. If they had, maybe the local prospect would have come here DESPITE those guys being ahead of him. And maybe he'd be able to carve out a niche and put together a solid career even if he had to wait his turn, a la Lazarus Sims.
And Lazarus Sims played at SU 22 years ago. Times have changed and so has recruiting. Players that are good enough to play at SU don't want to be the 10th man, much less the 14th man on the roster.
