Seth Davis has a great article looking at the fall of the St. Johns program
and how they are building it back up. He talks about the one time advantage of off campus stipends when they did not have dorms, the fracturing of the local grassroots programs, and contrasts the issues Carnessecca faced with the ones Norm Roberts deals with. He makes a great point, kids don't just stay home anymore. With AAU and all the travel, kids are well versed in other parts of the country and don't fear the city limit sign anymore.
