I think we need to stop and look at what are history is, first and foremost we were a half away from winning a 3rd straight bowl game for the first time in the history of our football program. Second we made a 3rd straight bowl game even after losing some key underclassmen to the NFL, this in the past would have destroyed us. We played a tough schedule, and played a quality opponent in are bowl game. So as a baseline we do have some growth in our program.
Now here is where I am concerned, is with the OL, DL, LBers and DBs.
We have issues with our OL and to me it’s like a catch 22. It seems that the more higher rated recruits have been OL signees , however they have not developed. I see Brian Wallace and Johnny Gibson not getting on the field until after all other options have been exhausted and it just does not make sense to me. I do not get Froholdt at all, this was always something that everyone questioned and the results where horrible. Also, I am not sold on coach Anderson and I think he should go, I just don’t think he will pay off.
On the DL, we have heard and heard how we have signed all this depth and talent. Keep in mind have been lesser recruited ath’s but they would be developed. We can not set an edge to save our lives and are not very well coached or developed. I have never like Rory, I think he is overrated and a weak recruiter and believe their was a reason he was at Samford and needs to go back.
