You are still recruiting southern boys to play in the snow and cold.

The Big Ten problem goes beyond Assistant coaches.

Look down Ohio State's roster. Their skill players, on offense and defense, are overwhelmingly from the south/southwest USA. Now look at Minnesota's roster. Not so much. Why? Because Ohio State went out and hired a coach who knows southern recruiting trails, brought a staff of other folks who know southern recruiting trails, and went and got said Jimmies and Joes. Like I said, "Southern boys don't like to play in the cold" is a gross oversimplification. But if you're cool with that, carry on, MacDuff.

If you prefer that they like to stay closer to home you can go with that.

If the program is good, and the coaches are big time at developing and recruiting talent, success will follow. The athletic department has to make a commitment to this, though. Bret Bielema went from winning Big Ten titles regularly at Wisconsin, coaching for his mentor in AD Barry Alvarez, a dream job; to an SEC also ran at Arkansas, largely because he was underpaid and sick of having his assistants poached by other programs because administration wouldn't shell out to keep them. Until a few other Big Ten programs come correct financially with their coaching staffs, this perception will remain.
