You have no favorite boards.
How much of a benefit is it to have our coaches on the road and not preparing for a bowl?
What do you think has a bigger impact on recruiting - coach face time with prospects or playing in a bowl?
Obviously, this sucks because we would also be playing in the ACCCG.
OSU is in the same boat.

To add on to what JC said -- all of which I agree with ...
I think the difference is a bit more negligible than it used to be because the majority of 2013 prospects have already committed. So a lot of it now is making stops to see 2014 prospects with whom coaches are allowed almost no contact or communication while there. It's see and be seen.
Yet in both regards, prospects view a correlation between how much you're seeing them and how badly you want them.
In regard to what you were specifically asking, GoingHeels, there's the tradeoff. One staff can sell how big a priority said prospect was because they were there to see him. The one in the championship game can say, hey, we're the ones playing for the title -- wouldn't you rather be with us?
Odds are that the prospect has already met with these assistant coaches several times before, so is one extra weekly visit going to make the difference?
