    I figured I'd wait until after NSD to create this poll. I'm really curious about Grantham and Gonzalez as the two controversial coaches. I assume everybody likes Gray, Turner, Crob, and Heversy. Nearly everybody dislikes Knox and English.

    I am on record of despising Grantham's style. I watched too many receivers being chased by LBs and too many S getting turned around in the secondary. I wouldn't say fire him, however I am ever hopeful some NFL team will grab him.

    You can't really argue with the stats. LSU was an outlier but they beat the shit out of everyone. I think almost all college football experts would be amazed if we were to fire him and I would be too, so I voted hold.

    This coming season should tell us a lot.

    7th in the nation in scoring defense.
    9th in the nation in total defense.
    Do with that what you will.

    ditto - wouldn't be upset if he left on his own terms. Don't think we can fire someone after a 10-3 and an 11-2 campaign. I would however hope Mullen does an extensive look at how/why Grantham is consistently getting beat on 3rd and long against quality opponents and suggest a new way design or scheme. Fromm knew exactly where to go with the ball 68% of the 3rd and longs this past year. The "problem" is that we didn't play but 2 quality QB's all season and we lost both games the same way with our defense just getting torched in key moments. Next year we are fortunate as well with Fromm and Burrow departing but you never know who will step up. Grantham is great at developing defensive lineman, and I truly believe that is where he should focus his attention on because he has proven to be ELITE in that area. I think the scheme for his LBs and DBs is just too complex.

    Not attempting to troll... do you think Grantham is running a system or style that CDM doesn’t approve of?

    I think you acknowledge the glaring deficiencies or/and lack of depth at certain positions and realize we were extremely undermanned at safety/LB and even D line once Zuniga got hurt and Greenard played hurt. I was just as frustrated and question his scheme as well but will give a pass until some proper depth and talent get infused which seems to have happened.

    Even the good players we had on defense were one dimensional. Good coverage but poor tackler. Great run stopper but poor in coverage. Etc etc

    Not Even going to visit the Gonzalez thread
