    Why is Mac not the main recruiter?

    Does anyone know why Mac is never the one recruiting the kids that we are after. It seems whenever we get a recruit its because of one of our assistants. I know at other schools the head coach is often the one to get recruits like Calipari, Self and Roy. Any thoughts?

    Re: Why does Mac do very little recruiting?

    How do you know that he doesn't do the recruiting? Just because some site like scout doesn't list Mac as the recruiter doesn't mean he isn't the one do a good majority of the recruiting.

    His recruiters get their foot in the door for him. Then he comes in to help with it. I'm sure this is done everywhere. KSU pays their recruiter more then the head coach, but I'm sure he plays the same roll as Mac.

    No, not really. I just think when asked he gives the credit to the assistant that was working with him on the kid. I think it is crazy to think the head coach doesn't have a huge role in recruiting, especially in a sport where you only recruit very few players every year.

    I had never really thought about this before. I think it's an interesting topic to ponder.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Why does Mac do very little recruiting?

    No head coach is the team's primary recruiter. Most of the time the head recruiter is gone for a lot of the college team's games because they have to be on the road watching recruits play. Morgan was very rarely on the bench during LE's last year for this reason. Head coaches come in to try to seal the deal and deal with them more when they come to campus...



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I think it is a stupid topic to ponder. I am not some Mac supporting homer but to suggest that the guy isn't heavily involved with the most important aspect of the the program is just dumb. Bash is coaching all you want but I guarantee you he works hard.

    I don't know but I would guess this is it. Mac is the kind of personality that would want his guys under him to succeed and advance, and this helps their resumes. Giving them credit for recruits he comes in on after the assistants make the ice breaking meetings is probably an example of that. You can tell whenever we play a former school of his like UNI or a coach from somewhere else he had a connection about how he talks about how they're a great coach and etc. He's the kind of guy that builds up those around him instead of taking all the glory for himself.

    Re: Why does Mac do very little recruiting?

    Mac does go watch HS games. And does hit the road to watch players play. He talks to recurits and does other little things to get them to want to come to ISU.

    You can go back to your post and hit the "edit" button and then you can change the title. Very easy to do.
