First things first: congrats to the 15 people to be inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in January. The list includes former Mizzou basketball star Jon Sundvold, former Mizzou football coach Al Onofrio, and former Mizzou football star Mel Gray. Not sure how Sundvold wasn't already in, but ... huzzah!

    Smart Football: The interplay of recruiting, eliteness and pro-style versus spread schemes

    For everyone else [besides truly elite-level recruiting teams] having an identity and being somewhat contrarian helps a lot because it allows you to focus your recruiting on guys that can help you, and in many cases it means you don’t have to compete with some other teams for those guys. It also means the traditional scouting services may overrated or underrate your recruiting class — you may have gotten a bunch of guys who will contribute but get a low ranking, or you may have missed a lot of guys you needed but wind up with a disproportionately high ranking because you got one or two guys who, while helpful, may not even be your most productive guys. Moreover, because you have a system with specific skills required, you can develop those skills. There are many examples, but think about how those Texas Tech teams under Leach always had four guys who could contribute and were open, even against the best Big 12 teams, because they’d worked on those skills every day for two years before they got in the game and had countless reps. If Michael Crabtree came along, great, but it also turned Danny Amendola and Trey Haverty into 1,000 yard guys. There are other examples too with other well coached teams. Think of a program like Iowa where Norm Parker sent a bunch of mid-level defensive recruits to the NFL as they developed in his traditional but effective 4-3 system.
