Turnovers and sacks stop drives on defense... I think Wilcox has been able to stop drives as well as Chavis and Monte despite our youth and high yardage allowed this season. I think/hope our defensive will show exponential improvement between this year and next; I'm glad Wilcox is staying.

No... that is all that I said. If he isn't the right guy, then it'll be the results on the field that bear that out which is why I said that we don't have a good enough sample to judge him on right now. Same deal with Dooley.

But, if we're going 7-5 or so in 2012, then I want new coaches whether it "ruins continuity" or not in your opinion. Continuity will fall in line with everything else with the right coaching staff. Dooley and his staff may be that coaching staff, but if they're not, then I want them gone as soon as possible. Again, so much for reading comprehension.

New Info On Wilcox

A guy on another board said if *Oregon wins the national championship, he wouldn't be surprised if their DC, who has been with Oregon for about 20 years retired, and they would likely target Wilcox (an Oregon grad).

I doubt he would turn down Texas and then jump to The ducks. But with Phil knight's money you never know. The above paragraph is from another poster, can't use quote feature in mobile.

I would think that falls under the catagory of his dream job.....I would expect if the DC position opens at Oregon, Wilcox would jump in it.

If Oregon came calling Wilcox would leave. Guaranteed. In other DC news, rumors are heating up that Kirby Smart may indeed be headed to FL.

funny thing is why would any team want him his defense has gave up 10 points in less than a minute in the bowl game, gave up a 4 and 14 at LSU and then tried to play defense with 13 men on the field. i would think after a year like that i would have to look at other options

I know they're good friends, but it seems like a bad move to me since Muschamp has said he's going to run the defense. I think it would make more sense for Smart to go be a DC for an offensive-minded head coach.

That one minute wouldn't have mattered without the exemplary defense in the 59 other minutes (UNC averaged 4.6 yards per play in the 59 other minutes, 3.0 in the 2nd-4th quarters, down from their season average of 5.7). The defense of the two-minute drill should improve when we get more experience in the secondary. Our nickel package includes 2 freshmen and 3 sophomores, and we don't even have enough players for a dime package. If it's still that bad next year, we'll talk.
