While everyone focuses on RichRod, The guy whose performance I am watching is GERG.
This is his second year, and the fact that he is playing freshmen means at least some of his players he recruited himself.
Sure, there are weaknesses in personnel, (every team has weaknesses) but a good coach can overcome some of that.
The verdict is still out on whether he is a good coach or not. He certainly failed at Syracuse.
He has had plenty of time to teach his system. He moved out Hopson and coaches the linebackers himself.
This team's success this year depends A LOT on GERG's performance of his job.
