Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
I had to google UW Defensive Coordinator.
Chuck Morel (sp)
One of the shittiest defense ive seen in a while.
For any high level football people, was it a coaching issue at all? Or player issue? Or all of the above.
Is Kalen shooting himself in foot keeping him around?
Morrell/Inge D needs a better secondary than what Lake left, which is why they got 6 CBs this last cycle (1 transfer, 1 JUCO, 4 HS)
We should have a better idea of their ability as coaches this season
Even with Trice giving QBs pressure nearly every throw, they found someone. The secondary barely needed to hang on and they still were the worst in the country.
Perryman not living up to the hype hurt. We've been spoiled with two lockdown corners almost every year since Pete/Lake arrived, and we dropped to zero year 1 of Deboer.
The good news is they can't be worse than last year. Also Okie State's transfer should give at least 1 anchor to build around that will allow for more safety help to the guy opposite of him.
With the entire front 7 returning in what should be an elite pass rush and improved LB play, if the secondary isn't at least top half of the conference in coverage, someone needs to get canned.
Factor in terrible depth.
Even with that, the defense improved in November, nails in the 4th quarter and peaked in the bowl game.
