And getting their ass stomped by 40 points a game on national tv really helps recruiting?
WVU just signed a 4-star DB Dravon Henry yesterday. He had offers from schools like Alabama, Florida St., Michigan, Ohio St., Va Tech, among numerous others.

Your theory about losing on national TV is invalid, and let me explain why. Recruits often look at a bigger picture than just W/L. Some look at locale (this kid is from PA), education programs (rarely), among other issues.

One of the most influential issues, though, is immediate playing time. Yeah, WVU didn't have a good year, but this kid might have looked at our struggling defense, and thought he could walk right in and start. This is where national TV exposure (regardless of W/L) is important, it gives potential recruits the opportunity to see a team and evaluate their chances of fitting in.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
