Default Looking back on the Deke Adams hire

I've seen this thread referenced numerous times in the past few weeks. IMO, he's catching a little too much heat at the moment. I think he, and the rest of the defense, deserve some heat. But firing him now is way premature, IMO.

Anyway, here's the thread. Enjoy: http://www.cockytalk.com/showthread.php?t=187111

Didn't like the hire back then, don't like it now. If FLA can make lateral moves then we should also. Put some money behind somebody like Brick Haley. You buy a Kia, you get a Kia...you buy a Rang Rover...you get a Rang Rover.

I think its a little early to be blaming Deke as much as people are. Did he operate in this offense before moving here? Doesn't it take time for the staff to gel a little too? Adams is getting blasted, in my opinion, because he is the easy target being the new guy.

Don't get me wrong, it may well be that he is not the best for this job, but I think its a little early to say that.

The DL has been one of our strengths for years under Lawing. Then we hire an A-she-she coach. Unacceptable to ever hire an A-she-she coach. We did this when we hired Brad Scott and look what happened. Literally, Adams could be sabotaging the program.

This is a little dramatic. You are remembering the last few years of Lawing's tenure, there were other years when every team we played could run on us at will and we couldn't pressure the quarterback at all. Now the talent level is different at this point than it was then on the Dline, but the LB talent level and experience was different too.

This is not to say Lawing is not a good coach. I am saying there are a lot of other factors to consider when trying to say a guy is "sabotaging the program."

By the way, Spurrier was an ACC coach before he was an SEC coach too.

Default Re: Looking back on the Deke Adams hire

I was cool on the hire.
When he said he wanted guys chasing the ball, I was worried.
I don't want my Dlinemen chasing the ball, I want them playing their assignment and making plays when it is their play to make.

I have a feeling Adams called for Clowney to drop into coverage on third down last night, and Spurrier gave him the ole "What the hell are you thinking?"

No coincidence, next third down Clowney got the QB.

I'm not ready to fire Deke (I at least want to give him a shot) but I'd say right now, his job is not secure next season.

Sure there has been a drop in talent from what Lawing had, but lane assignment and fundamentals have dropped off this year, and I think you have to put some of that on Adams.

Sorry. But I've never been good with this hire. We don't need ACC coaches on our team. I just don't think he is ready to coach a D Line like we have. I think with Clowney and the guy we have, we could have gotten a much better coach.

Was Lawing around when McFadden set the NCAA single game rushing record on us?

I think it is clear the Linebackers and Defensive Linemen are not on the same page, as evidenced by the issues on the sideline between Adams and Botkins. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't their assignments linked? I think this is a chemistry thing that will improve over time, not an issue with either coach personally.

I may be wrong, but that is my opinion.

I think Lawing knew how to coach talent. Adams does not. Plain and simple. How can we have one of the top D Lines in the country and then look the way we did. Fact is, there's a reason Spurrier was in Adams face. Lawing wouldn't have made those mistakes. I don't think Adams knows how to utilize Clowney. Lawing did.

The linebackers on the same PAGE?? Watch them in the game. They ARE GETTING MANHANDLED. Golightly looks smaller on the field than Legree and Hampton.
