It's working; Laubach just came on and said to hold on for a few minutes.



EDIT - I hope punctuality is one of Garrett's strong suits. Neutral

Recruiting - "kids within an 8 to 10 hour drive."

Staff will come from NFL ranks, top FBS and FCS.

Most convincing answer was to the question, "Why Lafayette?"

His answer seemed honest and enthusiastic - Why not Lafayette?  Its has a top reputation, a storied history, incredible support and the best facilities in FCS.  Who wouldn't want to coach here?

Also, I hope and pray - traditional colors ONLY. Maroon jerseys and white pants at home; white jerseys and maroon pants (or white on white) on the road.

Many good things said.  Pretty reasonable approach to recruiting and schemes.  I like the focus on the players' psyche.

With the problems we had in the past, he seems like a solid choice.

Very interesting that Bruce acknowledged the lack of passion from alums, parents, and the school.  Maybe the consultant and committee are working?

Bring back Uncle Billy's silver pants with Maroon and White Jerseys!

No more red and black, please.  We aren't the Atlanta Falcons.

Why does he think he can succeed in the PL? Says he played in the Ivy, coached in the CAA, and the PL is pretty much in between.  Maybe a rehearsed answer (and maybe not) but he's correct.  

Plus I liked his points about being "this close" to Villanova and Delaware.  Clearly he's watched the tapes and he sees something.

Bruce McC said nine candidates interviewed off campus (presumably Hotel Bethlehem) and three of those nine came to campus.  Based on the intelligence provided by XLeopard and others, its seem that the three on-campus interviewees were Harvard OC Joel Lamb, Princeton OC James Perry, and Garrett.

I'm guessing that those who did not make the final cut are in secure positions with other teams and would prefer not to have their name mentioned.  I have a gut instinct that John Troxell likely was one of them and Mickey Fein was another.  I don't know if John Loose was interviewed but it seems likely as well.
