Something I think most all of us can agree on: Anyone who doesn't recognize that the D has been eviscerated by attrition is a fool.
What I haven't heard is much discussion about what/who is to blame for the incredibly high attrition rate. Some is expected when making a coaching change, especially when changing philosophy as much as we did moving from Carr to RichRod but I think what we've experienced is more than anyone expected.
Could it be that one of the weaknesses of the spread is the narrow restrictions it puts on players in order to be successful? As long as RichRod is here we can kiss our 6' 6" slabs on the O-line. I'm not saying that you can't win with the spread but could this contribute?
Other thoughts on this?
