Just got around to watching the Geno Show and thought it was another great effort. One thing I found telling was his analysis about recruits today and how he and staff have to really ask themselves "do we want these parents in our program" even if the kid is okay. Said the kids sense of entitlement stemmed from parents who did not act as parents but buddies who gave them everything they wanted, so kid gets here and says why can't I have it (I'll fill in playing time, starting role, etc.). I'm thinking there is one highly recruited kid for 2016 class where I would be asking those questions.
Favorite part of the show was Geno once again reacting to the Tennessee game thing: "Sorry that ship has sailed." and other things. "In 5 years I haven't had one person about that game." (Gee, I wonder why? )
These are the Golden Age years for the program. Hope people realize it and do not start too many AAC conference woe strings. Those really p me o with their endless reiteration of stuff.
I really, really like The Geno Show this year. I think Kerith does her homework on the questions, and Geno respects her enough to answer honestly. You really get some interesting content (and context, too, now that I think about it).
