Mr Tampa 2 said recently that he failed at Illinois because his defensive scheme is better suited for the NFL

LOL
Oh my, that boils my bottom.

No one can be successful at any level if the offense knows exactly what you are running. Even a mediocre HS coach could game plan around a defense that is going to run the Tampa-2 80% of the time. In the passing game you just gotta pick on the MLB making him choose between defending a seam or a cross underneath. The only way to beat that is to have Urlacher (a generational talent). Relying on smaller DL and a gap scheme makes you super vulnerable to power running attack.

Oh damn, this makes me way more mad than it should, I hope him and Miles fail so spectacularly he ends up getting fired from a HS coaching position like Mike Sherman.

Never heard that about Mike Sherman. Wasn't he one of the hot staff rumors as OC right after Lovie got hired?

Thank goodness for our current football staff. Let's go!!

Yeah, he basically had a pretty meteoric fall after looking okay with the Packers in the early 00's. Went to Houston as OC/AHC was fired after 2 seasons, HC at TAMU and didn't do awful but was fired again, Went to Miami and really flamed out. Then was a terrible HS coach worked his way into the CFL but was fired because the franchise was so poorly run the CFL itself had to step in.

Thank you for posting this. We were constantly putting out defense in the worst possible situations by letting the opposition know exactly how to read and react to whatever we were doing defensively. Zero obfuscation. Throw a man in motion, figure out if we're in zone or man, and run one of two plays. That was the one thing that drove me absolutely nuts game in and game out.

I've been watching BTN Illini football programming all day. On now: remarkable Illini comeback against NW from 2011.

I'm jacked up. Can't wait for tonight's spring game. Want to see Coach B, staff and players in action like crazy.
