It's hard to recruit good players out of HS when there is zero history of this program getting kids drafted. I believe SB coaches dont have what it takes to take them to the next level and falls on the shoulders of the coaches, all of them.

I can only think of one coach in the 10 years Ive been following SB football that is a quality coach and who can take an athlete and make him into a quality BFL player, and that is Lyle Hemphill, who was just promoted to Defensive Coordinator at Wake Forest.

Funny you mention Hemphill. I think we should have fired Coach P after the 2016 season and promoted Hemphill to be the head coach. Hemphill coached our guys into the number 1 defense in FCS for a time. To let that guy simply walk out the door was criminal. I wonder if we could get him back? He was far and away the best guy to take over our program. That defense was the only thing preventing those teams from going 2-9.

My thoughts exactly.  Why he wasn't chosen to supersede coach P is a mystery.  Obviously, coach P has a strong hold on this Athletic dept. As far as getting Hemphill back to SB. Forget it. He went form a safeties coach to Defensive coordinator.  That's huge in the FBS and his ceiling is endless.  Dont be shocked to see him as the HC at some Power 5 team in the near future.  He helped bring Wake Forest out from the doldrums to being an contender in the ACC coastal conference.
