    The issue, besides the sub-par defensive position coaches, is 3rd & Grantham's scheme is either too complicated to learn or it doesn't work so, different position coaches will not fix the root cause of this issue.

      I do wonder why people are constantly not set and or are out of position.

          That is a very easy answer. They are not being taught their assignments properly. The do not understand the defense and cannot get to their assignments.

            t-gator cracks me up. He still doesn’t know anything about Dan Mullen after 3 years.

              Nothing like building on fan momentum after stumbling to the finish line and a blowout bowl loss. I know I'm excited.

                That is fine.

                No sense in throwing good money after bad.

                There is no fixing Dorky Dan regardless. He doesnt have 10% of what it takes to be a championship HBC.

                  But both Danny and F-Todd agree that this is 100% on the players. 4-star players in their 3rd-4th year here are just too dumb to understand Grantham's NFL-level coaching. They should line up properly and be able to effectively pass defend when positioned in a prevent defense on every play.

                    Probably because many feel like they are not being held accountable and can do what they want. Exactly what 18-21 year olds want. Another coach would come in and try to clean the stench out in the first year. Not what some of these players would want.. Let's be honest, most of these kids are not thinking NFL and want the freedom and football. Who needs accountability? Maybe the actual NFL pedigree players saw that and is a reason why they skipped town early.

                      Don't let them play. Doing so is on the coaches. The fact that Wilson was allowed to strut out there on the first defensive play in the SEC championship game is proof to how little testicular fortitude the coaches actually have.

                        Great point. Unfortunately this will buy more time for mediocrity. After Grantham is again exposed as a disaster next year, Dan the Man gets to hire a new guy and then "that will fix all the problems." So now its what, three more years of Darth Vader costumes and nikes.

                          Because
                          (1) our fat ass moron is still sending in the play call often until after the ball is snapped

                          (2) he thinks lining up a safety deep and inside the hashes fools people into believing thinking he isnt playing man and just because he draws up a safety running 15 yards and covering a slot running a stop, slant or out.

                                No it wont.

                                Fooley managed to get a fourth year for his 2nd favorite moron, but Strichnine doesnt have a penny of goodwill in his account.
