you must a little if you opened the thread and commented.

Good move for Whammy, he is a good DB coach.

Could be a good move for Petrino. Good recruiter and good position coach. He was in over his head here but I don't blame him for taking the job and money when it was offered to him.

Ward is 5-2 against the Taters as a coach, I like those odds.

Ward was Always the Defensive Coordinator since he was hired onto the staff
at SC. His area of responsibility was the DBs and he answered to Ellis Johnson
who was the Assistant Coach in charge of the Defense. ..... Yes, it was to get
around a Loophole in Ward's contract with Arkansas (under Bobby Petrino) as
their Secondary coach. There was a stipulation clause in his contract that said
he could Opt out of the contract early without penalty if he was hired at another
school as either a HC or a DC. Johnson wanted him on the staff so he agreed
to have Whammy come on board as the defensive coordinator.
Whammy did an excellent job coaching the secondary, He officially got the
"JOB" as DC when Johnson left to coach Southern Miss right before the end of
the 2011 season. 2012 and 2013 were good years for the Gamecocks under
his tenure as the DC here, but it all started to fall apart after that. He wasn't
the major cause of the collapse as it rested on overall recruiting, but during
those last two years, Ward's defensive philosophy changed as well. He saw
the future of defenses becoming smaller and faster to complete with the
growing amount of teams going to the Hurry up, No Huddle offense and even
made some comments to the press that he saw in the near future, defenses
in College football being basically 11 DBs on the field. ... Our defensive front
started falling off in size and body mass and geared more to speed than to
defending an area on the field, and strength and stamina at the defensive front
line and Linebacker positions. That along with the falling off with recruiting is
one of the major reasons we are in a deep ass hole trying to dig out of the
last couple of seasons of the Spurrier era.

Whammy will make a good DB coach at Louisville no doubt. He was a damn good
DB coach before he came here, while he was here and should be where ever he
ends up coaching. ..........as long as he's not in full charge of running the Defense

With Watson, Williams and Gallman gone, I reckon there'll be more than one team that can beat the Taters next year.
