    Head Coaches should be able to coach all positions? Good luck trying to find many that can do that. I know we haven't had one here. I think you discredit coordinator/position coaches too much. Unfortunately for us, Muschamp hasn't found his Mullen yet.

    You know I believe 100 % that Muschamp would agree with you that it all falls on him. The man has simply owned it this off season. He obviously still keeps perspective on the issues that hot him last season but he has been and will continue to be the first to say it all starts and end with him.

    This made me laugh picturing meyer out there trying to show DE'S and Nt's just how they're supposed to shed the block of a 300 lbs lineman. This would never happen. He might know what suppose to be done but there's a reason why some are better at teaching the same thing gs as others. Some people master techniques and styles to take advantage of certain situations. No way meyer jumped right in the trenches and said this is how it's done, at least with any real success he didnt. The guy was a offensive guru, as champ is a defensive guru. Leave the rest to the guys that specialize in that particular field.

    I think the better comparison is champ hasn't found his offensive Charlie strong yet. A coach who can shore up the opposite side of the ball. Meyer had the offense down, strong held down the defense. Ours is exactly opposite. Champ has held down the defense he just needs his strong (roper) to hold down the O.

    I just posted earlier that with out strong I do t think we win either national title. The defense was certainly our strong suit in '06 and his defense was key in holding Oklahoma to only 14 points after they broke the offensive scoring record for the season that year.

    The sad thing is, we all mostly agree that it's his hires, followed closely by one below average offensive recruiting cycle in 2012 (he needed a big year because of Meyer's failings in 09 and 10), that are the main reasons behind his disaster in 2013.

    The sad thing is, even if Roper is the "right" hire, given the toughness of next year's schedule, and all the question marks about the offensive personnel, he probably needs TWO years in order to prove if he is the guy or not, but he's only got next year. That's a lot of pressure.

    I think that shows Roper's confidence in his system. Nothing better to have going into the season after the one we just had than confidence. It's infectious, spreading among the players and generally starts to yield results.
