Coach Zook, man, I could ask you about a billion questions. I would love to sit and pick your brain for about an hour. But, in the interest of all fairness, I guess I'll stick with my main one. And please don't take this the wrong way, I mean no disrespect and am only looking for an honest answer. The main reason I ask is because Auburn is going through a very similar situation right now. So here goes:
During your tenure at UF, many criticized the defense and blamed them for some of the come-from-behind losses you guys suffered. Making the transition from (successful) defensive coordinator to head coach, what does this do to you? I mean, does it make you more hands-on with the defense? How does it affect the day-to-day operations of the team, defense specifically, when what you've grown into is now the "weak spot" of the team?
That reminds me........
What, in your opinion, is the driving force behind all that sand that somehow finds its way into the innermost crevices of certain people? I mean, physics would dictate that all that sand would eventually, you know, fall out of there. How does it get there? And more importantly, why does it seem to multiply once it implants itself in said crevice? Thanks in advance.

Mr. Zook, you made several million dollars over several years, so, I assume, you are quite well set. Why would you want to take the crap that's involved with coaching?
You were clearly looking for a reaction. You got one. You just earned yourself a ban. I'm fine with anyone voicing an opinion. I'm not okay with what you're trying to do. Ron Zook agreed to answer questions as a favor to me and this site. He's done nothing to you - and neither have I. It's inappropriate and it's uncalled for.
