Coach Pete and new recruits

As Drew pointed out Coach Pete (and his illustrious staff) have started pulling in recruits left and right.  Which got me thinking:

Coach Pete staying, and spurning huge programs in the process, could be the biggest compliment to not only the city of Boise and BSU, but the football program in general.  

He is one of the best (read: the best) coaches in the nation.  One whose name will undoubtedly come up for every hire--if not just a necessity, but a requirement.  With Stanford on the prowl, he still resisted urge to try and leave for "bigger and better".  (Yes, a lot of you will say, "why would he go to Stanford in the first place?", well, that is a debate for another time and place.)

By staying committed to not only the city of Boise, BSU and this program, he's sent a message to the recruits: this is a place worth coming to and staying in.  This community is a place worth vesting your time and energy to make a difference (yes, in terms of the players, that difference is namely football [and the name of my next unborn child]).  But with Coach Pete staying he not only brings consistency and security but the assurance that this may be the next best opportunity for that recruit.  I hope that when the recruits look at what he's done they'll say "hmm, maybe there is something to this place after all".  

Who knows, Coach Pete staying could actually be the biggest impact of all.
