Beating up on bad non-conference teams and losing games you should win when the season is on the line is not worthy of yearly contract extensions and raises. For all of his recruiting wins based on rankings, these guys are not contributing. This season would have been a disaster without Mo Ibrahim and JMS. Winning the recruiting class ranking game is not contributing to success on the field, so I disagree that talent is more important than coaching - that's only true at the elite programs in the country. It just so happens that those 10-12 schools also attract the best coaches. Your first 2 sentences exactly represent the entire Mason tenure. His recruits are contributing. He's made coaching mistakes (like probably relying too much on Morgan), but I don't know if you purposefully neglected to mention Kaliakmanis and Brockington, who both came on late and certainly contributed. Rankings are always subjective, but you also have to factor in the transfer portal game now. The impatience of some kids lead to them transferring out when they probably weren't ready to play or were stuck behind Mo. Could you have imagined a tandem of Mo and Bucky? Bucky's impatience to play led to him transferring out? Is that PJ's fault? Lots of guys at Alabama over time have sat behind NFL-ready players and still do to some extent because of that school's reputation. That ain't going to happen here or at many other schools.
