Of course it's the players, players play and coaches coach.And yet, it is the same coaches who developed players quickly at UCF. At some point it comes down to the players. An earlier post asked why the Davis twins couldn't be developed. I think that is a great question, best answered by the Davis twins. I have noticed at times this year that they can be pretty undisciplined (past crucial penalties being one indicator), and if we want to branch out, JJD admitted he "tried to make a play" instead of doing his job on the Purdue TD. Sometimes, when coaches don't get the same results as in the past, you have to look at the differences in the players they are coaching. I doubt the coaches forgot how to "develop" in 2 years.
But someone has to get the players to do what they are supposed to do and this year that has not happened.
All the successful programs we are trying to catch (Alabama, Clemson, OSU, etc) have multiple analysts on both offense and defense so why would we try and catch these programs by being "short handed" in doing so?
So all I'm saying is if every one else has water at practice, why don't we have it too?
