My sources say Ted Roof for DC

That was a really good read, actually. The conclusion: Roof has coordinated defenses with very sub-standard talent to above-average important statistics (although worse-than-average yards and points), so with a decent bit of talent at PSU, the writer thought he'd outperform (which he did).
Shocking----friggin shocking!!! A coach does better with better players and more experience at coaching!!! This needs to be investigated at the highest levels. See S-A-B-A-N.

The Debbie downers on here obviously never played a down at any level (welcome to ST). How many damned times was it posted on here that the D played with no heart and emotion? If Ted comes on board, THIS will no longer be the case. At this stage of his career, his results will be a direct result of the talent available to him. Worry about The Hill, not Ted.

Don't bring up the Hill and 1998-2001 (-2005)

Auburn's D's were GT 2010-2012 bad in 2009 and 2010. However, UCF's D in 2011 was good, and PSU's D this past year was pretty good. So, who knows, maybe Chizik was more involved during the Auburn years.
He was at Auburn in 2011.

One of by buddies once left a shoebox full of crap in my car right before I left on a two week vacation in July.

This hire stinks worse than that.

I know some other posters have listed the stats, but I figured I'd look up as many stats as I could to try to make me feel better about this hire and compile them all together. These numbers are going to be from his time as a DC only.

2012- Penn State
23rd Rush - 128 yards/game
50th Pass - 255 yards/game
29th Total - 353 yards/game
16th Scoring - 19 pts/game

2011- Auburn (was only at UCF 33 days)
94th Rush- 189 yards/game
51st Pass - 218 yards/game
81st Total - 408 yards/game
79 Scoring - 29 pts/game

2010 - Auburn
9th Rush - 109 yards/game
108th Pass - 259 yards/game
60th Total - 369 yards/game
53rd Scoring - 24 pts/game

2009 - Auburn
78th Rush - 156 yards/game
57th Pass - 218 yards/game
68th Total - 374 yards/game
79th Scoring - 28 pts/game

2008 - Minn
68 Rush - 143 yards/game
93rd Pass - 240 yards/game
80th total - 383 yards/game
61st Scoring - 25 pts/game

It should be worth noting that Minn had the worst defense in FBS in 2007. They won 1 game in 2007 and went 7-5 in 2008. So while those numbers aren't exactly stellar they are a huge improvement from the year prior.

2003- Duke
63rd Rush - 158 yards/game
53rd Pass - 217 yards/game
57th total - 375 yards/game
76th Scoring - 29 pts/game

2002 - Duke
28th Rush - 120 yards/game
102nd Pass - 254 yards/game
65th total - 375 yards/game
83rd Scoring - 29 pts/game

2001 - GT
23rd Rush - 117 yards/game
53rd Pass - 216 yards/game
32nd Total - 333 yards/game
37 Scoring - 22 pts/game

2000 - GT
12th Rush - 94 yards/game
114th Pass- 285 yards/game
70th Total - 379 yards/game
21st Scoring - 19 pts/game

1999- GT
89th Rush - 189 yards/game
100 total - 413 - yards/game
93rd Scoring - 30.3 pts/game

What I take from this is that Roof is aggressive on D to stop the run but doesn't seem to be too great at stopping the pass. While I think this is the approach Tech needs to adopt to win games, aggressive D that can pressure the QB and stop the run, I'm not sure I like Roof as the coach.
To put these in context, you need to compare his stats to his predecessor. In each case, you will see that Roof made defenses worse statistically.

Why is this funny to your friend? How can you be friends with someone after something like that?

I understand basic pranks but I don't get stuff like this. I was reading a thread on a Bama board regarding the dude that got 2yrs for the tea-bagging. They were like "who hasn't done that to a buddy"? I'm like "Uh, I've never done that or had it done to me. If I had, there'd be one less of you mfers walking around. That's for sure".

I'm trying to derail the thread. Is it working?

Why is Ted Roof trending in UK? What the hell is 'Ted Roof' anyway - weather protection for stuffed toy? #confused​

Everybody relax, I'm here.
Ricejacket, you still got that shoebox? Drop if off on Thursday, put a red bow on it for PJ.
Please tell me you still have it. That would be the only thing weirder than still considering someone a friend who left öööö in your car.

it has too...those of us who remember him in 99 as a DC...remember. Some of the worst defensive efforts I have ever seen, to the point where GOL said he is taking over the D. Sound familiar?
Are you better or worse at your job today then you were 13 years ago?

I'm on the fence about the hire but anyone pointing to his teams from 1999 as evidence of a bad hire is being silly.

I'm not sure why anyone would freak out or praise any hire at this point...we have seen two awful performances by the DC's under CPJ. At this point, just sit back and enjoy the ride. I'm sure that is what CPJ is thinking...
