Alford was an okay recruiter, though he got much better when he hired Noodles.
Matta was renowned for his recruiting prowess, it was obvious for a sustained time, as a asst and then two years HC, he proved to be way above average.
Few hasnt really recruited at a level like the BigTen, though he has gotten some nice ones. If he moves up, he needs a proven big time recruiter to step up to the level, though he may find a comer like Matta was, many will want to get a proven commodity.
I havent written off mid major types, they need to be the rigth fit and come in with the guns blazing, not with a water pistol like Lickliter. _________________ Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain

Sources at the Eugene Register-Guard say Ducks have talked with Billy Donovan. He makes $3.3 million at Florida, but Oregon says it is looking to make a "big splash" with a name coach to light a fire under the program as they move into their new arena next year.
Also, one reason why Oregon fans keep talking about Mark Few is that he was born and raised just south of Eugene and is a close personal friend of Pat Kilkenny, the ex-AD who is leading the search.
Not saying that Oregon will ever make an offer to Donovan or somebody similar to him, but I wonder if Iowa is considering a similar "wow" hire for the Hawkeyes' job. Somehow, I doubt it.
I believe the only other D1 college head coaching job opening now, besides Iowa and Oregon, is St. Johns.
