I remember Koetter’s remarks about recruiting where he said that it did not pay to compete against national powers for blue chip players and continually come in second. He felt that his systems did not require 4/5 star players. Therefore, he felt compelled to retain his system coaches. Maybe that was true at Boise State, but slugging it our week after week in the PAC against top talent proved to be a lot tougher than he thought.
I also remember Lisa Love using the “Best in Class” catch phrase of the day while introducing Dennis Erickson. She had simplified her role to hiring a coach that had won a national title, then assuming ASU would be set. What could go wrong?
