to being at the bottom of college football in less than two years? Any perspectives or opinions?
we have great recruiters but none of em can coach. sure there might be one or two who can, but for the most part no. the defense has gotten progressively worse since chizik was hired and we see what one season without gus malzahn has looked like. also i think there has been some resentment of bvg from the defensive players. they were used to a laid back ted roof, but van gorder is a piss and vinegar hard nosed type. i dont think their 5 star egos could handle someone yelling and screaming at em.
Yes, we won it in 2010 but:
That team was top heavy with seniors. We started the next year with a lot of youth.
Yes, we recruited very well for three years but:
A lot of attrition plus some of them were either over rated or just never lived up to
Yes, these coaches can recruit but:
They are not "coaching them up" or at least we've not seen any evidence of it yet.
