Your answer on some of that would be found in the pages of the LJS and OWH in the wake of Connie stepping down and what one local AAU coach had to share. Don't mean to step on anyone's toes but there was very clearly a Dan Lesoing problem involved in the recruitment of those girls. Now, whether that was Dan's fault or Connie's fault is not for me to say, but there was, without a doubt, some barrier in that relationship and that clearly resulted in girls that Connie pursued choosing to go elsewhere for college. It's not that she was bad at recruiting Nebraska, but you make a tough recruiting job tougher when you've got a certain AAU coach working against you.
That all speaks volumes. And I agree on most of it. There have been several very good local kids we haven't been able to recruit.
I don't pretend to have the answers, or inside knowledge, but it's undeniable....we've missed on some. We'll never get them all, but a least get to the point where the locals look closely at UNL, and think hard before they go else where. Hopefully Coach Amy can turn some heads.
If true about a certain AAU coach working against you...then should someone in control of the process should give it a little attention. It's really a low blow.
A lot to the story of AAU Coach and Coach Yori but bottom line is it boiled down to lack of PRODUCTIVE communication. Too much "he said" "she said" and when there are ego's involved it usually doesn't turn out good - and it didn't. Water under the bridge now so moving forward let's hope Coach Williams and AAU Coach converse because they have talented players that can help the home state's program.
