Lake never struck me as drinking the Boise kool-aid. Remember he coached in the NFL and coached at other places besides Boise. Lake was the one unit who wasn’t afraid to play Baker, Jones, King, Murphy, McDuffie, Cam Williams, Turner, Gordon in their youth and grow with them.
I don’t worry about recruiting either. Pete wasn’t fired, we aren’t bringing in an outsider. Pete is still part of this program, Lake who was in the living room with a lot of these recruits is still here. This is similar to what Ohio State/Oklahoma recently just did. This is almost dead on what Oregon did transitioning from Bellotti(who Pete reminds me of) to Chip Kelly.
