I know that there has been NUMEROUS threads about Brady and all of our opinions on whether or not he should stay or leave, so I won't get into that aspect--at least not directly. But with Neltner's decision to transfer, and his comments reguarding his decision, it makes me wonder if Brady has been "promising the world" to a lot of our recruits, and then not coming close to fullfilling his promise. You know, coaches (specifically Les Miles) talk about their efforts in recruiting, and explain that the best way to be successful (both in the long and short end) is to be up front and honest--players respond and respect that a lot more than you lying to them and them finding out AFTER they're already here that they aren't going to get what was promised. I can't help but think that perhaps it's not so coincidental any more with Brady losing players via transferring, yet he continues to land some rather promising recruits every recruiting season. Having seen these things unfold and happen yet again, I'm under the impression that he's offering/promising these players too much, only to never come through with his promises once they get on campus. Now, this isn't a sure-fire analogy, but it's one that doesn't seem too far-fetched, and I'm starting to believe that this is what's going on. Why else would a player like Neltner, who after the season ended, Brady told him depending on what Bass decided to do, should he (Bass) leave, Neltner would be in line to start next season--all for a team that SI has ranked in their VERY EARLY Pre-Season look-ahead to '05-'06, in the top-10.
