I gotta disagree, but get ur point... the blame lies squarely w/ Friend

re our OL recruiting & inability to grasp the G5 talents who CSU could apprehend/sign in '16 & '17. Just as ME failed on the great Safety & LB from Colo who signed w/ Wyo, and Colon & many others. No HC is or s/b operating much at that micro level in recruiting. Only or mostly at the macro-level of interceding w/ a kid, or adding the strokes needed to close the big fish.

Do you really believe that Bobo is blind toward, or can't ID great OL talent (the foundation of every good O)? That'd be a poor assumption. Any CEO must delegate, delegate, delegate (or get crushed by the work-load).

Fortunately, Bobo has sooooo many Ga/SC/La/Miss HS Coaching contacts (from UGa & his Dad), personal recruiting contacts (from recruits he had at UGa)... and such a stellar REPUTATION as a "great man, OC & QB coach" that he has been tipped off about Skill-Position kids like Gallup, Colin Hill, PW, Craig-Meyers. That doesn't carry over much into the OL & D positions.

It seems that Friend finally began to feel comfortable offering/signing kids he'd not have recruited for UGa. I think D Johnson already went thru that recalibration in the G5 OL recruiting. Sorry that Desmond Noel will not be joining our Rams this Fall... look forward to his arrival in Spring (???) .

Just my take, FWIW.
