High-stakes recruiting approach would mean big payoff with big season

June 11, 2019

If Matt Rhule was a gambling man he’d be in Vegas with his previous six pay checks splitting green on the roulette wheel. Based on assumptions that the reported $4,000,000 annual salary is accurate, that’s a $2,000,000 bet for a payout of $34,000,000. 

In a lavishly abundant analogy, that’s essentially Rhule’s staff’s approach to recruiting the 2020 class. He’s not being greedy and playing only one of 0 or 00, he’s splitting them with the confidence that with the highest graded quarterback in the conference surrounded by a large number talented playmakers, plus a Phil Snow defense starting its third trip around the merry-go-round, that the odds are actually better than they look.
