Remember those arguments from 6 months ago. I wonder what folks think now. I, along with several others, argued that he didn’t leave it better off – that talent levels at key positions are either down or unknown (qb, wr, etc.). What do folks think now? I would argue that 3 things are better now than they were at the end of the Kiffin era:
1. Fewer knuckleheads in the program
2. Better O line talent
4. The VFL program/moniker
All else seems equal or worse. Fortunately Butch and staff are making rapid improvements to recruiting, alumni relations, public relations, strength program, and player morale in general.
