Sorry for another Defense post.
But, Im tired of the finger pointing and problem solving ideas when there is one clear reason our D has struggled.
Now, Im not letting anyone off the hook. GREG may not be the answer and maybe things will eventually have to change, But, its clear THE problem right now is depth.
Depth plays a lot more of a role then just gameday. One of the biggest reasons Bo was successfull was his players couldn't wait till the game, since that was the easiest part of the week. But, its a different game today. We can't load up on scholarship players and with Michigan right now, its in even worse shape on the D side.
Look at this weeks presser. They can't work on the biggest fault the last two games (tackling) because they are worried about health more. Good tackling and the last two games look A LOT better. Still some screwups, we are young too though. But, Tackling stands out and on a deeper team. They are in pads hitting till the sun goes down firday night to fix it.
So lets prioritize our frustration. 1. Get depth, we can't do this overnight and have to wait for recruiting to help out. 2. worry about other stuff afterwords.
PS - They are doing the right thing by keeping our best athletes healthy. Im not for beating them up and live with the injuries, because I think thats a way of giving up on this season. They have to take the punishment in the games, cross their fingers and learn on the job.
My rant is done
