No doubt, Gerg's track record with this ridiculously young and outclassed defense has been bad, but surely another defensive coordinator could fix the problem.
Look at Monte Kiffin for example: He is widely known as one of the best DC's in all of football, and he went to USC with Lane. Here, they also have a very young and inexperienced secondary where they have been tearing it u.... oh never mind. They have the 4th worst pass defense in the country with USC talent. Surely, if the "we're Michigan" argument stands, then the "we're USC" argument should be even stronger considering the recruiting of recent years. Unfortunately this is not the case. For everyone screaming about how "wins speak for themselves" I hope you have fun in your little shelter of comfort, knowing that a new coach could come in and give us a quick fix.
The fact of the matter is this:
-We have one of the most statistically impressive offenses in the country, even after facing a top ten defense today
- Molk, Martin, and Denard all went down today and we still moved the ball and got some key stops.
-The last two losses have been to strong teams
-Most of you would have been thrilled with 5-2 at this point if you would have been asked in September
-You knew the defense was going to suck immensely. Why is it suddenly a surprise?
