Now that 3-9 is in the rear view for 2nd straight year, my reflections.....


It's clear that the 2015 recruiting class was not where it should have been. Hardly anyone remains. The character of a lot of those individuals was not what you need for success. Ruff was good man. I'm not sure he articulated his message in the family rooms as well as other schools vying for the same players. I think he had a good staff that got a lot out of the players that we had here. I've been told by a college head coach that he was "in over his head". This year is really MO's first group. Mo is a great talker that is surely doing well in the family rooms. At the end of the day, it's jimmy and joes and not x and o's. I've decided to switch gears and give the man a more fair chance! He really was put into a tough situation. In fact, he's kinda got a little Pirate in him for taking on such a tough task. I expect we will see improvements in 2018. Go Pirates!
