Did he just admit to shadow recruiting?

I probably wouldn't laugh at jokes if I were attending a meeting where my new coach who's never seen me play was telling me how much I suck, either.

I don't know what shadow recruiting is but I think it's a given that some of his players are coming with him, especially given one of them is his son who is already in the portal.

Anyway, this video is total horseshit, I'm very certain this resonates with the barstool crowd. What he very quickly will discover is that he can't bully the Pac 12, like he did the SWAC without building depth. He can bring his own "luggage" all he wants but that roster is shallow and he's going to need some of those guys he's shitting on to build that program.

His path is more like Harbaugh than Prince but didn't Ron always say he wanted a "smart, tough, disciplined football team that consistently competes for championships"?

The AD was asked where they got the money to hire him, and said “we don’t have it yet, but I’m confident we will”


That doesn’t exactly scream huge NIL warchest in their collectives if they are putting the coaches salary on layaway

LOL at the camera and mic guys.

Did the first player he asked “is that you?” say “no, sir”?

there was also a pretty good moment where a player in the back took of his hat right after the "no hats in meetings" line

If you don't want to run through a wall for him after that speech you don't want to be there.

I’m sure he’ll get a couple big name recruits, but this definitely feels like a situation where you take a bad team, get them ok enough that everyone sings your praise, then bolt to a better gig

Also him reading that speech off of his phone doesn't exactly connote sincerity.

It’s going to be fascinating to watch this.

Colorado has really updated their facilities. So he’s good there.

The Cal-UCLA-USC institutional mindset of pretending to keep athletics at arms length from the academic mission permeates through CU as well.

Its always been about Dion. No one else. Those kids are smart enough to do a little research and once they figure out (a) that he didn't like to hit, (b) didn't like to practice and (c) always, always, always made it about him, regardless of the team, they won't run through walls for him, unless there's one between them and the nearest portal.

He told his last team this directly and will tell this one the same. At least he is being honest about it I guess. I give this 3 years max. I'm shocked that people like Feldman are talking about how this is going to be amazing. Its going to be a disaster.

Sounds like the just kicked off an NIL collective and got the school to relax requirements for entrance for transfers. That should boost recruiting.

I think he accomplished a great deal in regards to bringing attention (and high level recruits) to HBCU's.  For him to bail for more exposure and more money seems a bit hypocritical but let's be honest - none of that crap matters in major sports.  If he wins there all will be good.
