    What evidence do you guys have to think the defense is magically going to be better next year?

    Ted Roof won't be coaching.

    The Ted Roof that coaches a national championship defense?

    Why wouldn’t you go down on Tara Reid if given the chance?

    Van Wilder-era Tara Reid was a bona fide 5* recruit.

    With a aggressive defense we would have easily won 2 or 3 of those games!

    One play a game better on defense and we are 8-3 last year, but frankly if cpj made this move to only be one play a game better on the field than he is an idiot. Roof's off the field abilities were worth more than 1 play a game due to scheme/playcalling

    If you believe in cpj, than you'd have to assume we will be significantly better on the field next year.

    Absolute BS. Auburn's defense was ranked #60 the year they went undefeated - they gave up an average of 24 points per game. If you call that a National Championship defense then we already have one.

    Part of that was because they were scoring so quickly.

    Hey I hope we have a spectactular offense next year, but I’ll believe it when I see it. Ted wasn’t coaching the defense by himself. He had assistants, and they did what they thought would be the best for the team. I’m just not convinced something as simple as a coaching change will fix our problems. I think it is a personnel issue.

    Its not a personnel issue.

    I was at Tech when Roof was playing and witnessed first hand the metamorphosis that took place when Don Lindsay took over.

    I love Ted as a person but Tech comes first (and apparently as well with TS who had to dismiss a classmate and friend in TR - that had to be difficult for him). I've seen remarkable improvement in defense simply by changing coordinators before and I expect the same with NW.

    Some of you are blinded by liking HE WHO SHALL NOT BE AGGRESSIVE as a person. The dude was absolute öööö for the 60 minutes in which games took place.

    A lot worse. I would say the defense under Roof was better than it's ever been before under CPJ. Which admittedly is not a very high bar.
