    Remember the comment by one of the announcers, early in the bowl game, about our backers having "stone shoes?" That, to me, has be obvious since Riley was named head coach.

    The only thing I really want to know is which boosters pushed for this firing?

    Bray's LBs start looking a whole lot better when he starts Avery Roberts or Tyrin Ferguson over Dedrick Young next season. From what I saw, Dedrick is not a starter

    If we do move to the 3-4 (I doubt it, the minority of colleges use 3-4), we have Tyrin Ferguson.... Guinness book of world record arm length.... he could be a prototype 3-4 end LB

    What did you see in Dedrick? He was supposed to an answer to the LB crew?

    I really believe that our defense completely changed at the OSU game. I was there, I bought me and my Dad a ticket, and it was easily the worst decision of my life and my paycheck. Even the OSU fans were bummed, what a crappy game.

    After that game our D completely checked out. I knew it when I saw Aaron Williams slacking on plays in the second half. That was sad.

    I am really happy we are going to have a new set of, qualified and possibly overpaid, eyes taking a look at the talent on defense this fall.

    By the way, and I have not read through this entire thread, where is Monty Kiffin these days?:Lol:

    Monte Kiffin is an American football coach, currently serving as the assistant head coach of defense for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League. He is widely considered to be one of the preeminent defensive coordinators in modern football, as well as one of the greatest defensive coordinators in NFL history.

    I know, he is 78 years old.

    I mean he started last year, I expected a bigger improvement this year. Maybe I am asking too much.

    Coming from starting as a true freshman, IMPO, now an underperforming sophomore, he should now have to compete for a spot based on how he played last year and the new DC change. He is clearly an inside LB. He is a flat footed runner, unlike Mo Barry, who has a little more gitty up. Im not counting him out, I just want more

    Agree! Everyone should have to "compete" for a starting position each year. And, just like Banker, if there is not significant improvement or there is regression, someone else can take your place.

    Oh yeah, and where did he start? (No need to answer)

    I think you meant he is the preeminent coordinator of defense in modern football

    Why this fascination with NFL people. Most NFLers have failed as head coaches. The games are different. I get Riley is all pro-style but the games have evolved in different directions. Monte Kiffin was killing it in the NFL and got killed in the NCAA.

    Please, please, please stop with the go get an NFL guy mantra. Bill Callahan was an NFL guy. Tim Brewster was an NFL guy. Monte Kiffin was an NFL guy. Go get a cutting edge up and coming college guy. They are different games.

    Bingo. Riley put himself in a hole. It's on him he brought a bunch of B players with him and lost 2 years. I gotta ask, what about Cavanaugh and Reggie Davis? Frankly, DL isn't lighting the world on fire but ok let's see what he does with a statuesque pro style QB next year.

    Your comment About Billy D makes sense to me. Just have to wait it out.
