What I find really bizarre regarding scouting is that I can get better information about a player in the recruitment process than I can from my assistant coach. Why can't my assistant tell me if a guy is a low-hi or hi-hi in a particular area once he's already in the program, but he or another assistant can during recruiting?
I think you assistant knows, but he's not telling you. He wants you to fail like Pat Knight. You get fired mid-season, he takes over on an interim basis, the team goes on a winning streak and...VOILA!...he's a head coach.
You can't blame him...the poor guy's been there for over 60 seasons.
