They did, however, have to try to make the best the could of a very limited recruiting timeline, hence were forced to fall back on Fulmer & Co's work. Of course they reassessed everyone and that's why several were told to ply their wares elsewhere, but they tried to salvage everyone they believed salvageable.
Time played a role. What time CLK and staff had was spent on assessing on the field performance. The time limitation was likely even more severe with respect to an assessment of character.

Hard to blame CLK and staff for not having time to build relationships that would permit such 'character' evaluations. They needed talented players--and that was the obvious prioriity at the time.

Not sure how much time CLK and staff would ever spend on character assessment. Orgeron even bragged that they weren't recruiting angels.

I'd say it was pretty much an afterthought for the 2009 class as they were more concerned with just grabbing up any half-decent player available. In fairness, I don't really remember any red flags with any of the guys we took other than Hood. Seems like there might have been a little smoke around Nukeese, maybe.

5 suspensions....SOS has to be a eunuch, that would be the only reason I can think of for letting Garcia return.
