big fan of RR and was bummed when he was treated badly and let go.
I was NOT a fan of the Hoke hire and thought we "settled" when we could not land Miles or Harbaugh.
I am much harder to win over than most. All Hoke has done so far is win with RR's players and the most dynamic player in CFB ( Denard of course ).
I am fully convinced RR would have had a great season too had he been kept on.
As for recruiting....Hoke has done well as far as "on paper" and star rating if you believe in those. The proof as to him being a great coach and recruiter is a few years away yet.
Lets not deify him just yet. If he really is the next Bo....we will know soon enough.
With all that being said.....is it possible i was just totally wrong about the Hoke hire?
It sure as hell is looking that way.
He seems to be a totally capable coach and a first class person.
Sometimes being wrong does not hurt all that much. And crow....with the right seasoning....is not that horrible either.
