Subject: Don't overlook the variable of Coaching and Stewarding the Program

Though more subtle to analyze by "lay folk," like us, it may be what distinguishes the top dogs from the rest of the pack.

This doesn't diminish the significance of recruiting success. Exceptional athletes are significant. But, they're just part of the equation.

Was Biddle winning the recruiting game, the coaching game or both ?
Same can be asked about Fordham's Joe Morehead ? Conversely, this year, we already have additional hints about H.C.'s ability to attract the calibre of payers now going to other PL schools. Does Tom G's coaching and the program stewardship provide them with any on-field uptick ?
AD Nate Pine has upticked morale temporarily. God for bid Pujals gets injured, H.C. will become fully exposed and possibly fully unglued.
