You nailed it. May I quote you? I'm changing the context, though.


"One decent recruiting class won't be enough for sustained success, and the guys they have coming in won't necessarily be better than the ones they lost." While you're referring to Virginia Tech, you hit on something that exposes a HUGE problem for Virginia, a huge challenge for the Virginia coaching staff.

If we bring in a great recruiting class every three or four years, we're depending heavily on a single group of guys to carry us, and hoping and praying that somebody breaks out from the "out years" role player recruiting who can help. This doesn't work for "sustained success," as JustE correctly noted. We just saw three guys get chased off the team because they didn't turn out to be good enough, consistent enough, or dedicated enough to remain on the team. I'm worried.
