I guess the staff is ok with coming in around 19th. We are at the bottom of the SEC with spending for recruiting. If changes are not made then we can expect the same result year after year.

Honestly with the little we spend in recruiting we have done pretty well for ourselves record wise. When spurrier goes I hope the next coach invests more in recruiting like everybody else does, but I hope they are also able to coach them up just as good too.

I don't know this to be fact but maybe one of the reasons Spurrier does not pour money into recruiting like the other schools is b/c he is more focused on spending that money towards facilities. He often says/implies how important nice facilities are in catching up with the other perennial programs and attracting recruits.

Our facilities are great now! The stadium looks better and better every year. Can't wait to see the new indoor practice facility.

Facilities are not the issue. We can do both. We just spent $750,000 per year to hire an assistant coach to do what our current assistant coach should be doing. Add that $750k to our recruiting budget and we would be in the top 3 in recruiting budgets.

Carolina would have to pay DC Ward for next year anyway. I am not sure how long his contract is for though. As the saying goes...two heads are better than one. Just a guess..if we have a good defensive year next year, Ward may be offered a head coaching job at another school and Hoke would be given free reign with the defense...but we shall see. It will be an exciting year.

I don't think Spurrier can just decide to start spending a lot more on recruiting. I would assume he'd have to ask Tanner, and then have a vote with the board or something.

Either way, I wish we'd put in a little bit more money. Like most things, you get what you pay for.

As we already know, if the HBC wants something, the school will give it to him. Make no mistake

These people need to put in the effort to account for attrition.

yes Spurier could get more money for recruiting, but it seems he is happy with the area we are now recruiting.....the problem is, we don't get the top players in any states except SC....we don't have a elite brand yet that out of state kids are attracted to....that's why auburn, Georgia, etc can come in late and steal some of our commitments.
