    When you have coaches like Pete Carroll, Nick Saban and Urban Meyer... the players come to you. The programs under these coaches were NFL factories.

    Pete only needed one guy for recruiting: himself.
    I remember thinking he could sell ice to the eskimos - but remember it was really good ice.

    Pete different era from Saban.. Saban has built a business model some how within the rules that no one can match .. a true football factory that dwarfs the scope of what Pete did for us .. Saban advisory staff makes his organization bigger than some NFL teams
    Has totally insulated his program from failure

    Something like this. The new TV deals and conference consolidation this past decade set off an arms race. Money changed the way the recruiting game is played, so comparing Carroll's tactics to what Saban has at his disposal today is kind of like comparing bombing effectiveness between the Vietnam War and the First Gulf War.

    Bohn knows he has to do everything possible to keep this program Competitive as he is handicapped by Helton! These are all Bohn’s hires!
    Fight On!

    True, although as with any successful program, it's a constant revolving door. He lost a few after this season and he's bringing in a few.

    However, to Gly's point....

    Easy to recruite when you win and get players drafted.

    It's hard to recruit when you consistently fail to develop 4 and 5 star recruits and lose to Alabama by 50 points.

    If you want to know how large Pete's staff was, ask his wife. J/K
