We have just gone through all our analysis and breakdowns of last year, interviews with our players, interviews with opposing players and pressers/interviews with coaches that highlight a few themes:
1) Our defense had poor technique and fundamentals
2) Players did not know why they were executing in the scheme so it affected decision making
3) We had miscast players in certain positions in addition to our defense lining up in seemingly odd ways, to the point of players requesting correction
For a man who did not recruit so he could focus on scheme and fundamentals (shin angles, it is all about shin angles) how could GERG allow both areas get so effed up for this team? What did this guy actually do for his job considering the results were so terrible? This is a man with two Super Bowl rings as a DC, so he has to at least be competent. Did he simply check out at the beginning of last year? Was it an FU to RR for having to run a 3-3-5? I can only believe he had to be delinquent at fulfilling his duties. Do you think Casteel wouldn’t have taken a phone call about where to put the MLB? Can you believe there was no available film on WVU? On some level, this just pisses me off that we effectively cheated our players of a year of coaching and development which brings me to clawback provisions for our contracts.
I don’t know if anyone has actually met the guy and saw the type of effort he put into the program. Please share it if you do because it is just simply maddening to me. The other option is that Dr. Vorax was actually running through the halls inflicting his chaos like some evil Chucky doll. Hopefully Hoke used a trident on it. Ship him and Tacopants to a new location.
