Getting mad at RichRod would be quick and easy, but for the facts.
1. Carr stripped the shelves bare his last year. Nothing was left, really.
2. RR has a crew of freshmen and walk-ons.
3. The D really stunk, except for this last game, and RR had already installed a new DC to fix that (and it is one step down the chain from him).
4. A lot of the good players got hurt (perhaps because of all the freshman and walkons).
5. A lot of the problems are because Carr screwed the team on his way out.
