I care. That's why I asked. Looks like CJH can develop which is great. Something other UT coaches haven't done. Hopefully he can recruit, too. Think we would all agree it's better for UT if CJH develops 4 and 5 star players rather than developing 2 and 3 stars. The former should have a higher ceiling on average.
Agree...it's all about player development. Compare our recruiting rankings to any teams who fared better than us in the draft, and all of our players can't be a bust. A smart NFL team probably realizes some UT players are extreme value picks. Watch Palmer and Smith...I'd bet both are very solid year 1 players.
Think JH's chance to get us back on track is to create excitement on offense, whether all the wins come in Y1 or not. Excitement breeds momentum, and can lead to us attracting players we're used to having historically at UT.
What this actually shows is that Martinez can develop talent and that the Offense highlighted some players that certainly wouldn't have gotten noticed. I think if Bryce would have stayed he could have played himself into the 3rd or 4th round. Will see next year, but I think we will have multiple offensive players drafted and Taylor will end up in the top 3 rounds.
The response to your very good question that they were developed by Huepel avoids the answer. Correct me if I am wrong, but Huepel was there for only 3 years, so that would mean they were recruited by Frost and coached by Frost and company year 1. Also, Huepel’s O staff are the only people to have come here. Three of the five that went pro were defensive players. Not surprisingly, they were receiver.
