People Need to be Patient
Losing a game on 3 special team errors in the last 5 minutes is pretty unexcusable. The more talented team didn't win last night.
Football is one sport where a coach needs to recruit talent that fits his system. For that reason I feel it is unfair to judge GG until his kids start to play and have a chance to mature.
Can ISU recruit 4 or 5 star kids consistently? No
Can ISU recruit 2 & 3 star kids who can develop into All Big 12 performers? YES! It all comes down to GC's ability to identify and develop talent.
I know some people look at kids like Meyer, Blythe, Bass, Bowen, etc and see solid talent on this team. The key will be when All Big 12 teams are announced, how many OL & DL players from ISU are all conference- even honorable mention. My guess at this time is ZERO.
