He obviously did much better than that, and now he has tons of recruiting momentum and can sell a winning program, passionate fanbase, great facilities, new conference, etc. He never had much to sell at Miami.

It sure seems like other fanbases are a lot more concerned about Haith going forward than Mizzou fans are. Personally, from the improvement I saw in our players, the intelligent set plays, the calculated substitutions and timeouts, and the recruiting momentum we have now, I have very little doubt about Haith's ability at this point.
Well put.

One thing that I think was a limiting factor at Miami, too...the overall coaching budget. He's able to attract and retain MUCH better assistants at Missouri than in Miami.

Look at a guy like Tim Fuller. He was the No. 2 assistant at Louisville, and Missouri was able to lure him away.

Having an excellent staff is critical to success.
