'Patience' is key as Craig Smith looks to make his mark with Runnin' Utes

So far I like what I see with this guy.

Just as long as he doesn’t say, ‘we have a young team …’ for the next 5 years :wink:

Trust in Larr — Oh wait. Be pleasantly suprised with Craig ???

It’s all going to come down to recruiting. If he doesn’t hit on a few of these prospects he will be in trouble.

Yeah. I hate that he couldn’t keep Pelle Larsson. That was a huge miss.

I’m not saying Larry K was perfect but I’m not sure Smith is any improvement. We may be going through this again in 3 or 4 years.

Who’s to say he had any chance of keeping Pelle.

I don’t know but Pelle stuck around for a while after Smith was hired and worked out with the newcomers and new coaching staff before he decided to transfer. I’m guessing that indicates Pelle was willing to give the new staff a shot but decided he would rather play in a different program for different coaches.
