1. The defense taking a step back everything to do with personnel on the field than Jimmy Lake’s play calling. Our ILB’s were so bad it was like we were playing with no ILB’s on the field at time. Manu and Wellington finished entire games with one or two tackles a couple times. That’s not Jimmy’s fault.
2. There is more that goes into being a head coach than just being a successful position coach or coordinator. It requires a level of energy and charisma that Coach K doesn’t have. He’s not a front-and-center type of personality.
3. Why wasn’t there a coaching search? Because the #1 target for the job was already here. If Jimmy wasn’t our head coach right now, he’d be the head coach at USC.
Point number one just reminds me of how infuriating it is that Bob is still on the staff.
