Hmm..........that's too bad. I'm not really familiar with football recruiting. What are the chances that our new coach could pick up some quality players to give us immediate help next year? Have most/all of the good recruits already signed to schools by this time of year, or do we still have a good chance to get some?
Its still kind of open. Some of the real good ones wait till the last minute and get their 15 min of fame out of it by an annoucment of some kind. But some are already committed. The immediate help will be hard, but is achievable. Look at what Gmac did.
We just have to be optomistic.

JP moved quickly to allow the new hire as much time as possible with as smooth a transition as the circumstances allow. Callahan was hired at Nebraska on January 9; put together his staff and recruited a small class of 18 for a Rivals score of 2.83 and a class rank of 27. The rank would have been higher but for the small number. If the right person is in place within a week after our season ends, there is time to put together a good class, especially if the new hire is familiar with the high school prospects.
