Interesting question

Who could do better with this team in these circumstances? Well, despite CU's disadvantages (lack of in-state talent, lack of regional talent, no big money boosters, limited NIL opportunities compared to bigger programs), I still think a better salesman would yield better results on the recruiting trail. Mel could sell. He wasn't Bill McCartney but nobody is as far as I'm concerned. Mac was maybe the greatest recruiter in CFB history when you consider how bad the Buffs were in the early 80's with no facilities and little fan support in a state with little talent. He built this program into a power that could compete athlete-for-athlete with anyone in the country. We'll never have another Mac again.

But see, I'm not asking for Mac. I'm asking for someone who is at least a good recruiter and preferably very good. Karl is not that guy. It doesn't matter though because I expect Karl will be here for a while so I've just accepted that getting out-athleted by our opponents is something we'll have to deal with for the foreseeable future.
