Although I think it's wrong to say the defense collapsed last year bc the defense played well against clemsons offense.
NOT the secondary. They were "Burnt Toast" the final four games and their coach apparently stopped coaching after the Red Devil Two Minute Debacle as well. Cooper is missed there. They were all too busy
after Little Nicky walked out of Tiger Stadium with a win. (As were the fans)
Any optimism I have about the "New and Improved" Can Cameron offense is tempered by the OL because I don't think they're that good at pass blocking. Having Stud back full-time should help, but I'm concerned about the personel there, especially at Center.
As for Defense, I don't care how talented the new people will be. There is no substitute for experience. Doesn't matter how athletically gifted you are, if you don't know your assignments and who to cover. I expect a drop off there. Expect the worse and hope for the best.
Oh BTW, will all you fart knockers please cease and desist with all the whining about the schedule. Wasted energy. Can't do anything about it. Deal with the hand you're given.
All the "Wine and Cheese" crowd and their "9-3 is acceptable" need to get the frick outta here with that BS as well. Raise your standards of excellence and don't accept mediocrity for the State University of Louisiana football program!
