Nothing like making a good impression

You wanna know why South Carolina under Spurrier went in the toilet?

We knew he didn’t care much about recruiting even in the good times, but, sheesh, that’s Paul Johnson-level sad.

    It’s the “and staff” part that I find legitimately shocking and damning. You’d love for your head coach to be laser focused on recruiting like Nick Saban, but I doubt that Bobby Bowden knew who every guy was when they showed up, either, even when his program was still winning titles. I’m sure his staff sure knew, though, and I’m sure they made sure he knew by the time it came time to shake hands. The fact that Spurrier’s assistant coaches weren’t hungry enough to have that focus is surprising and telling.

    Spur didn’t bother because he knew he didn’t have a chance with a kid that had offers from everywhere else
