At this point all that Ben has is the opportunity to pitch is himself. He doesn't have tradition, he doesn't have experience. At this point in time, he has to be able to sell himself and convince recruits that if they come to the U they'll leave better players and people than they were than they came. He'll have to do that a lot better than other coaches to make up for what he doesn't have (school tradition, track record of success). The phrase "sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves" comes to mind.Why should any 22 take a leap of faith on what BJ has done to date?
He could wind up being an amazing coach and building a powerhouse program here. But would you be willing to let your 22 class son risk that, at this time?
