But this part I think cuts to exactly where we are:
I'm not so sure how hard it is to be in a "comparative world". But it's clear that the onus is in the head coach to not only ask for what he needs, but also justify their desk space in Butts-Mehre. And the justification may be as simple as the fact that the idea of extra hands on deck is working in places like Alabama and Auburn.
And before everyone jumps to the "Richt needs a special teams coach!!", read the whole piece. Sounds like that may take care of itself. But like with the support staff, they'll go strictly by what the NCAA dictates.
