Correction? - I think that attendee coach Mike Sanford is from Boise State (not
Indiana State)? Sanford is BSU's new OC. I believe that he was planning
to attend this camp.
U-PAC,I would think that the recruiters at Utah put some focus on Instate
and Poly. For some players the on campus LDS institute is icing on the cake. Go
Mucho Mahaloo's to all who donate their time to these wonderful players.
Te'o is just incredible.
It would be cool for a kid to try out at 10 different schools if he wants a
scholarship. The simple fact is that a family can only afford so much and the
body can only take so much before it breaks down. If the NCAA would form a way
that a whole bunch of schools come to this camp. The biggest ones take the top
kids, then smaller schools take the rest. With this format, it's efficient
for both kids and coaches. For three days, kids can display their best efforts.
1 in 8 Polynesians play college football versus one in 1000 caucasian kids play
college. Makes sense.
UPAC - agreed. The LDS poly kids are really nearly all the LDS kids we have to
land. Other than that, I support and think we'll continue to see a shift
away from the LDS kids. Now, I'm not saying we'll never have any, I
just think it will be less and less of non-poly LDS kids. There are better
athletes when we go recruit in Texas and California. There are fewer LDS kids
now than there have been on average the past couple decades, and I hope that
trend continues. the Utah population just doesn't have the talent compared
to Texas and California.Goooo UTES
