I'm most impressed with how Ward has handled adjustments. Under Johnson, it seemed like we always came out after the half with the exact same game plan, which was fine if it was working but absolutely infuriating if it wasn't. Ward seems much more flexible on the whole, which has really benefited this unit. I actually have faith that we'll bear down and figure things out if the opposing team gashes us early in the game.

His adjustments were pretty damn impressive this year. It was a very welcome change from the previous years. You're right the longer the game went on the more confidence I had in the defense....it used to be the other way around

do you actually read my posts????? because either you have a serious comprehension problem, or you just don't read them. so i will help you out. here is my last post:

yes, extremely talented group! why? do you not think we have an extremely talented defense? don't understand that comment...

as for the second comment, no and yes. no, i never freaked out about us being too thin in the secondary. in fact i argued to the contrary. however, yes, i was very unhappy about the addition of botkin, and was not convinced that promoting ward was the right move.
while i am glad to eat crow about the two coaches, i am left wondering what is your point? although the defense definitely won several of our games for us this season, i was specifically commenting on the fact that the tenn game was one game where the offense was the unit that stepped up and won it, not the defense. so, again, i am wondering what your point is?
where in all of that do i refuse to give them their credit???? i said, very clearly, that in that ONE game (tenn), that the offense was the unit that stepped up. and i also admitted that the defense won most of our games. so i ask again WHAT IS YOUR POINT?????

A. Adjustments were excellent all year long except at Lsu and Tennessee. Those guys just pounded us up front though.

Excellent hire. Hope he's here for the long run

Sorry if this has been asked already, but does anyone know the takeaway/giveaway numbers for the regular season? Thanks.

B+ solid overall but we got gashed by UT and smacked around by LSWHO. I didn't think anyone in the country could run it on us if we knew they were going to run it with our DL personnel (including the two deep).
