I think our depth chart is just frozen in time. Maybe that is one of the "attention to detail" things that would give the fans a bit more confidence in the program.I wonder what happened to Donate Smith? Didn't CBK say he was full go and going to play? he was listed co-starter on depth chart.
One thing GOL did is he was damn organized and punctual. If GOL said he was going to have the team show up at 1:30 PM for the 3:30 PM kick, you could set your ööööing watch to it when they showed up exactly on time. No sooner. No later. Practices were crisp and organized. Sloppiness was dealt with, sometimes harshly, but deservedly. When GOL was hired by ND, I immediately predicted they would win a natty within a few years, and I still believe they would have. Dumbasses. I wish we had just told him "no biggie, come on back" and let him coach us to retirement.
We just don't have the attention to detail we used to have. Chan's weakness was we couldn't get a QB that was equal to our rivals like UGA. I think we may have finally gotten him when Renfree committed, but it was too late to save Chan's job.
CPJ was more of a mad scientist. A genius. Don't need a play sheet. Need a good QB who can recognize the defensive alignment, adjust to it, make the correct reads on an option. All things being equal, given equal personnel, you really should NEVER lose a ballgame running CPJ's offense with him at the helm. If you were to have put Tim Tebow on our squad for CPJ, we would have run roughshod over our opponents in 2008-2009.
Anyway, we gotta figure out an identity. We are lost.
