    LOL, Gundy is an offense guy and it shows. He's running a pretty good offensive coach farm. I'm not sure they know what a "defense" is in Stillwater, and I'm an OSU fan! :(

    I wish Gundy would hire Bo Pelini to run the defense, I think it would it make a huge difference even though Pelini can be a hot head.

    10000000% agreement here.

    It was so danged frustrating watching Stoops get 4 and 5 star class recruits on offense all the time who could go out and score 50 on almost any team in the country and yet have a defense that was absolutely mediocre at best. Sure they always seemed to have a couple of studs on each year's squad, but that was about all we could hope for on that side of the ball. It was frustrating to just play the "Leach card" which was just drag racing on the scoreboard. If they want to go all the way they have to be excellent on BOTH sides of the ball.

    We'll see what Mike Leach does in the SEC, my guess is not much. What's sad is Lincoln Riley is a carbon copy of him, they don't believe in defense, they want to score as fast as possible. You cannot control the clock very well doing that and it wears your defense out unless you have depth to rotate guys in/out. Ou has no depth on defense, they barely have guys who could be backups on a descent SEC team. Look at the draft for the last 15 years, hardly any Big 12 guys are drafted on defense. . I don't know what went wrong, back when K-State was going with old man Bill in the late 90's, Nebraska and A&M were winning this league had talent and was a very tough conference. Its sad to see but the Big 12 is a joke nationally now. OU is literally the only thing the have and they can't play with the big dogs its been proven again this year.

    I think Grinch is moving in a positive direction. Not many defenses have to play against high powered offenses week in and week out. Definitely wears out one side of the ball it would seem.

    I see some of the pussyfication rules hitting the defensive type players hard. Dick Butkus awards may be handed out but if any of the players did what he used to do they'ed get suspended.

    Those "pussyfication" rules are an attempt to increase player safety so that fewer players like Calcaterra have their careers cut short by injuries. College players today are bigger, stronger, and faster than (although maybe not as tough, and certainly not nearly as cutthroat as) pros of Butkus's day, so a lot of what they did could easily end someone's career--or worse, cripple someone--today.
