Seriously - isn't that how you would recruit a top guy if he had a car break down and was just sitting in your living room?
"Look, Andy Bauer, I know Pinkel and crew are ****wits. But seriously - just stick it out for one more year. You'll have a red-shirt year and in 2014 the whole staff will be new, competent and ready to mold you into an NFL superstar...."
Given the 'strengths' of this coaching staff and how impossible it would be to sell them on these lame-duck idiots over the actual competent, qualified staffs in the SEC, they might as well recruit against themselves in the hopes that the talent they bring in serves to drag them to an 8 win season despite themselves.
