2012 basketball class would have included Rodney Purvis if Nevin Shapiro never mentions Frank Haith's name.
Pinkel and co.'s recruiting results are just what you can expect when over 1/2 the staff is average at best at recruiting, and you're carrying at least 3 guys who suck at recruiting (Jones, Walker, Grinch).
I am torn. I want Maty Mauk to be awesome. But I also would almost rather they miss a bowl game this year and just make over the staff and start fresh than suffer through another 3-4 years of Pinkel slide into retirement.
I'd vote for this. It would sting, but we would still have two years with Mauk and DGB to get things going with a new staff.
