Once again Coach Johnson has had a chance to use his soapbox and microphone for the forces of good old common sense in the world of college football recruiting. Highlights include his common sense approach, his advocacy for an early signing period, his wishing that high school coaches would help out a little bit more often, and his praise (though indirectly and without naming names) of none other than new Miami student athlete Corn Elder.
It's a monologue that takes the ambiguity out of Coach Johnson's sometimes-controversial (though widely misunderstood) stance on recruiting. You can't misinterpret him when he explains it so thoroughly (all the while talking normally to us, like an actual person from the Southeast rather than using "coachspeak.") For the last time, the man knows what he's doing, and the college football world would probably do well to listen to him! I'm sure he's not the only head coach who feels this way.
