Watching the Penn State v Ohio game is further confirmation that it was time for CRT to go
Still can't stop the slant. 21 unanswered points in the 2nd half and given up over 500 yards. Wow their defense looks like our last year. Never showed up on 3rd down in that drive.
I'm no PSU fan by any means, but it is sad to see the current state of affairs for that program. Anybody who says the NCAA has no teeth needs to take a look at "exhibit A".
To be fair, Penn state's offense has been bad, but not like the defense in the 2nd half. Interception Ohio as I speak. Game Over.
Like you, I am trying to figure out how it may not be Ted Roof's fault. I really want to give him the benefit of the doubt. PM says he was in a bad situation with us because of the combination of the high pace offense and too many hands on the defense. I know the PSU offense hasn't helped, but I was also seeing a lot of missed tackles and bad positioning that we had become all too familiar with the last few years.
That sounds familiar.
The high speed offense excuse will be hard to use since they run a slow paced offense at Penn State. Even on 3 and outs, that's plenty of time to rest up on defense when you factor in special teams and TV timeouts. Maybe 2 minutes in game time, but closer to 10 in real time. They ran the slant and he made NO adjustment to it whatsoever. I am quite glad he is no longer roaming our sidelines. We had a Cam Newton on defense in 2010 (Nick Fairley) that made big plays to will us to wins. That and timely plays by others, but Fairley might as well be called the Cam on D the year we won it all. Ted Roof, is just not good. Not from anything I've ever seen. PM has said he's respected highly in the profession, I just cannot see how though. He had success at both GA Tech and Minnesota with their defenses, but it appears he forgot what he did there. I guess time will tell at PSU, but I think today was just a sign of things to come for them on defense.
Pretty much, too soft coverage and linebackers couldn't stop a pass if Stephen Hawking threw it. D line was reading and reacting and never got enough pressure. Ted roof still gave up 500 yds with a slow paced offense.

If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
I don't really care for Roof's defenses either. That being said, I think defense won the NC game for us.
Our strength in 2010 on defense was our defensive line. We had Rocker as our DL coach and some dang good lineman that put a hurtin' on qbs by the end of the game if they wanted to sit back and thrown... oh yeah, there was this guy named Fairley as well.
that sats it all???do i have to say any more!!!!!!
