I agree with that. But there are some key differences. One, it's f'n Deion Sanders. He's got kids lined up for miles who want to play for him. Two, on top of Deion, Colorado boasts some damn good facilities which KSU doesn't have at the moment. And 3, Deion had no prior relationships with any of those former Colorado players. It's a lot easier to be cutthroat like that when you didn't recruit those guys, practice with them and build a connection.
As for the thread topic, I do think KSU needs to hit the transfer portal as hard as possible. But with that said, our small but passionate fan base needs to keep their expectations in check. We're Kennesaw State, not UGA. We're not going to be able to just pick up 30 transfers ready to play. One day when the facilities are there and more money comes in, I could see us being UCF level or James Madison level, but that's going to be a few years at best.
It's also a bit unfair to criticize Bo for recruiting more FBS talent guys when KSU isn't even FBS yet. This is his first full recruiting year knowing what the offense truly is and looking for more FBS level talent and size. He deserves his fair chance before we start calling for his head. His big mistake this year is not putting the better QB in and sticking with Murphy. But if we don't start seeing improvement early into the second season of FBS play, its fair to start looking elsewhere for a new coach.
