in light of the great news that RN was hired, we will need to be patient with RN. I know BN wasn't really partial to guys like Bruce Davis and Trey Brown, but losing guys like that are going to hurt the program. We are going to be losing a lot of leadership on both sides of the ball and a lot of experience as well. While we were excited this year for returning 20 seniors, we need to realize that we are now losing those 20 seniors.
This isn't to say that no one will step up next year, but there is no miracle coach who can salvage Dorrell's influence on our program in 1 or probably even 2 years. RN will be great for this program, but we need to be patient. It's going to take a while and we can't begin to grumble if and when we struggle next year.
Now I'm starting to ramble to get to 200 words, but I'm just glad we got the right guy. All the ESPN "experts" were saying it was the right move and I believe that this move instantly legitimizes the program and will put us back in the National picture.
