    We don't have studs at linebacker. That makes a big difference. That is the staffs fault for not keeping the cupboard full but yes, the talent is that bad in the run defense.

    Not absolving them. But those are the issues on defense in my opinion. We know that Lucas can scheme, especially against the run, based on last year's results. Losing two veterans key to stopping the run hurt. But that's basically been the book on Hud since he got here: great motivator, keep him away from X's and O's, and we haven't seen the development we want from guys that have the talent to be great.

    Don't start the fire the coach threads after one loss. We're not LSU A&M. If the team continues this path, then you've got an argument. But, let's not overreact. HUD has given us the most success that this team has seen in decades. He's far from perfect. Really far. And the defense is garbage. But lets not lose our heads.

    Doing something over and over and expecting a different result = insanity.
    Expecting something different from a person that historically has made idiotic decisions = battered wife syndrome.

    I agree... 6 years in we should be further along. No signature wins, no top 25 and can't win the Sun Belt. For what he's getting paid we should be getting better results.

    100+ over two games. SMH....

    Firing the DC won't help. Who keeps hiring coordinators and firing them?

    Bonus money makes up for yearly contract.

    Do we have the money to buy his contract out? How much money are we talking about?
    Who do we get? Art briles son? Or Steve spurrier' son? Both were coordinators under their dads. Or Canada from lsu?

    Rebowe is a better coach than recruiter. He has an eye for talent and he gets high quality young men to play above their heads.

    Hud's contract runs through 2020 and no, we do not have the money to buy him out. It is my strong opinion that unless we go 3 and 9 or worse, a replacement won't be considered. A change may not even be made at that point. I know the point which will come next, "it costs more to keep him than replace him". That is due to the lost support belief. That misses one thing, you still have to find someone or a combination of folks to write the check. That is likely around 2 million dollars. In this economy, no one will do that. Therefore, I think threads like this are pointless and accomplish nothing other than helping people vent. Having said all this does not mean I think we are getting our money's worth. We should have better results as our staff is one of the most highly compensated in our league. Finally, I don't think the defensive staff forgot how to coach and they were fairly successful a year ago. I conclude the talent on that side of the ball is fairly lacking and I question how much they can improve. That is a shame as our offense is vastly improved. Their future is bright as almost that entire unit returns next season. Can reinforcements be brought in to help the defense will tell the tale on next year. At this stage we will just have to outscore people to have any success in 2017.

    Giving a place for fans to vent is one of the main reasons there are fan forums at all.

    I doubt hud is here in 2020. Why not pull the trigger if we have another mediocre season if we have great options for bringing in someone better?

    Regardless of how you look at it, we were not "suppose" to win the game tonight or next week. We got lucky and had enough offense to keep it somewhat a ballgame.
