The proof is in the pudding as they say. A high bar has been set and I will wait to see if Tom can meet it. Jason Sapp wasn't just some average guy who can easily be replaced.
That's fair, and a similar approach I take to all new recruits. I've said this far from the start: Jason Sapp was the LeBron James in the recruiting news industry, and you don't replace someone like that.
But four years ago, Jason was just a fledgling who grew into a five star by his senior year and became the No. 1 NFL pick. The combination of contacts, work ethic and personality was unparalleled and cannot be replicated overnight, a month or a year. In many ways, It;s like expecting freshman year Everett Golson to be junior year Brady Quinn. That doesn't happen I think some people are going to look for reason to complain when somebody isn't right away meeting expectations.
However, we're always going to endeavor to perform at a level that sets the standard.
