Yes that is what I was saying. I'm not a Texas fan at all, but I acknowledge the fact that you don't have to be a great recruiter to bring good recruits into UT. The school itself garners interest from most of the young talent across the state. Do you still need to be able to recognize talent and close the deal? Yes. But UT needs a Harbaugh-type who can utilize his talent and develop them into good college players.
You're going to get talented players at UT, that's just how it is. But if you can't make the most of that talent then you will fail. Just like Mack has done recently.
