    Getting Greenard from the transfer portal was a big reason.

    Man, Greenie is tearing it up in the NFL. He already has five or six sacks. Dude is unblockable when healthy.

    Greenard was fun to watch and a beast. Those that followed have not lived up to his high level of play. (cough, Cox, cough)

    T Rob wouldn’t come back after he was kinda snubbed last off season no? If Manny is retained and Mullen comes calling, Manny may relinquish being DC and give it to T Rob just to keep em

    True, but, that's a pretty high bar that was set.

    Saturdays Cane win was huge for Diaz imo. At this point I think he keeps his job assuming he beats fsu and gets to a minor bowl. He went 8-3 just last year and only makes $3M/yr. He has a good young QB to build around.

    I hope I'm right, since he has worked for Mullen b4. Having watched the Canes defense and looking at his prior teams' stats, doesn't seem like an upgrade over TG to me. Further if he were hired, he would bail asap as he did at MSU.

    Yep. We'd be out the other end of the Grantham experiment had it not been for Greenard. That kid single-handedly masked many of the deficiencies.

    When your entire scheme is predicated on having one of the 2-3 best pass rushers in the nation to be good (not very good, certainly not great), that's an issue.
