In years past we’ve discussed the type of seasons Texas would need to have in order to keep recruiting going. Not all 8-4’s or 7-5’s are created equally. Losing close, winnable games, while leading in the 4th, is heartbreaking, but it also gives you hope that in the future those turn into close wins. That’s much different than going 7-5 or 8-4 with blowout losses.
For recruits, the feeling is extremely positive. To a man, they feel once they get to campus they can help the team get over the hump.
