But for the most part I think the Bulldog nation has taken to our defensive coordinator like a mallard takes to water. He develops players, puts players in positions to make key plays, attacks the line of scrimmage, recruits better than Hugh Hefner, couldn't care less about seniority...doesn't smile. In the Cliff Notes version, he's awesome.
However, let's slow our roll. There's a laundry list of reasons why we shouldn't be clamoring to kiss his feet so quickly.
- Boise scored 35 after an off season of preparation.
- Michigan State scored when they had to.
- He drinks Bud Light.
Last season was like a really nice steak...with an unfortunate bite of gristle at the very end. No matter how much we chew, it's just not at all palatable. Kirk Cousins' ghost is haunting Grantham this off season. But by now we've at least come to expect that he is cooking up something bigger and better for our next meal.
