    Isn't that the goal of recruiting? To bring in the most talented recruits to help you win as many games as possible?
    One could argue/say that all the RTB stuff or Nick S. only making phone calls are gimmicky for the same reason.

    It's all gimmicky and most of it is over the top, although not as much as it used to be with the Lobster meals on flights and such.

    Didn’t Cam Wiley have an Oregon offer? Wasn’t it a committable offer? If so, how did he say no to a wall with shoes on it?

    I have heard the damp windy winters in the NW will chill a person to their bones more than our “dry” cold.

    I forgot about his visit to Oregon! He was also unimpressed with the faded shoes on the wall and The Throne.

    Looks like Kristian Williams is taking an OV to Tennessee January 19th and then to Oregon on the 26th.

    He suggested that it was an either or choice. There are no perfect programs, but Oregon hasn't had any major issues with players that would suggest the choice was as simplistic as outlined, and while the emphasis on players beyond what they can do on the football field is nice, I despise the effort to make it seem like PJ Fleck alone does this. He is not and does not. He talks more about it and seems to suggest that his way is the only way. I have problems with cult like demands that you believe and act exactly as I say in all facets of your life. I also despise people who preach equality and mete out "justice" unevenly.
    If we want to fix what happened, you need to fire Coyle and Kaler as well.

    Demry Croft? And you know the situation well enough to say Fleck unfairly punished him? I'm not going to pretend to know that I know enough about the situation....because I have no clue. But I have spend about the last 20 years working with young people, as a teacher and coach. There are usually at least two sides to every story. But I can't think of a time where a teacher or coach I know purposefully screwed a kid over.
