The most important coach on our team is not Jackson. It is Hoke and he has to prove that he can win at this level equal to his final years at his last two stops. Despite the titles, the HC is in charge of both the offense and defense. Coordinators do so in the image of their bosses. It was obvious that Borges did not use the pass effectively to set up a rushing game that actually could have been more than non-existent. Most offensives are built upon this theory, and that is the reason Denard was able to pass to receivers completely uncovered and waving their arms as they did on the playground when growing up. Defenses were so keyed on him that he could with far less than precise passing ability accumulate so much yardage in both categories. BH should have realized this, and by not doing so cost us at minimum two games this seasons, possibly three. He must get over the dam 70s must run at all cost mentality. And our inefficiencies on both sided of the ball the past two years indicate, to me at least, that RR was a far better evaluator of talent then his successorl. Afterall, the only decent season we've experienced since Brandon's latest experiment since putting cheese in crust has been due to the talent RR put on the field for us despite the many four and five stars that said no. Stars ratings do matter and it's nice to have the roster littered with blue chippers, but even more important is to grab three and lesser rated 4 stars and have them perform at 5 star level.
still not over it in South Bend
