First of all despite everything, Rich Rod deserves a fourth year. Because otherwise the suffering will have been for naught. The fourth year should bring the most progress, with a NEW DC, who coaches his own defensive scheme not this 3-3-5 bullshit. Also the defensive side needs to be purged.
There's my rant......now on how this can be a POSITIVE. In TomVH's post Crawford said he would still come here with the allure of early playing time.....if we can get some more defensive recruits based on this allure then it wasn't a total loss. The recruits can see how horrible our defense is.
WIth another year of these young defensive players growing up, with JT Floyd,and Troy Woolfork back, with a new chest bumping DC, combined with another year of Barwis .....the defense next year could be this years Denard.....showing IMMENSE improvement. And of course only if Rich Rod stays, or our program could take several steps back with even more rebuilding in store ....ughhh
That is all I can hope....Now only post if you have something POSITIVE to add
