But does it attract good recruits? Players who can come in and make a difference?

And SMU wins the game without having a penalty called.

Clearly the record is better than before. So since you are suggesting the record dictates the quality of recruits, then YES, the recruits should be better. How much better? I don't know.

All how you sell it:
-Immediate Playing Time available
-A couple of play makers away from competing for Conference Championships and playing prime time games on ABC (a la Memphis)
-New Orleans and a Great Education

This.
You don't approach a recruit with "Everyone knows we're bad, but we're hoping to get better." You lead with, "We're putting together an unstoppable powerhouse that will win championships and represent on New Years Day. We need YOU to help us accomplish that. You will be playing with some superstar teammates. Get on the train."

Incredible. Just incredible. We clearly had the superior team personnel on both sides of the ball. But incredible, stupid player mistakes + stupid penalties + incredibly stupid coaching decisions (who is the genius? WF? Hall. Both looked stupid today....) = defeat. Wasted talent......
