I do not think so also when your scoring average of 28 is boosted because of below-average defenses such as Pc, pioneer league, and Western Carolina. A grand total of 7 points against Wofford, and 10 points against Furman. Not to mention 4 turnovers against Austin Peay 2 returned for touchdowns, 4 turnovers against Furman, an interception returned for a touchdown against Campbell, 3 turnovers and 2 blocked kicks against UTC. Stats do not lie. Yes, the defense gave up 35 points a game, however, try to find a coach that can defend against the short field. Not all of the team's struggles were on the defense.
Not disagreeing there. But many times you would see our players well out of position on 3rd and 5+. Not saying that’s the sole problem, the athletes are there the scheme was not. In their defense, it’s also very difficult to adapt to a new coordinator and only give him one year to prove himself. Sure there were turnovers on offense, I’m not saying there weren’t. I just don’t believe going to a triple option offense is the answer. Does it work? Absolutely. But getting what we have executing on a high level allows us to compete with anybody. Last year, we were in EVERY game minus Memphis. This year we just seemed out of sorts on defense a lot. Not the players fault, I attribute it to scheme. You and I can agree that on 3rd and 2 when you read dive you should be filling a gap, we did not. I personally did not want to see Coach Lamb go; with the decision made I would be focused on the areas where the most improvement is needed. Once again, my two cents.
