    this is still one that I just can’t get excited about. if the defense is servicable next year that’s an improvement, I suppose.

    Alternate reality. I've said it before.....the Championship that year was decided in November in Columbus.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Honestly, it was a bit of a surprise for me too. But then I thought about it a bit. When he took the position in AA, of anyone up there, it was he that I had the greatest concern about. I suspect that with his emphasis on fundamentals the defense will be more than servicable. Frankly, I'll be a monkey's uncle if it isn't vastly improved. Gotta figure out who the other DB coach is going to be... and I hope it's a good one... but I think everything is going to alright.

    And by alright... I don't mean all right.

    Read the interview of the tsun reporter regarding Mattison over at 11W.

    His strength is diagnosing why talented players aren't doing well and instantly fixing those issues as well as the overall fundamental soundness of a defense.

    Given the talent on the OSU roster, a back to basics-strong fundamentals-quick fix artist is EXACTLY what Day needs for his 2019 DC.

    Also the more I read about Washington being a DL guy by trade not really a LB coach, the more I think he's brought in to be the heir for LJSR

    I think he WAS brought in to be LJSr heir. They may have even told him as such.

    Amen. You think of guys like Chase Young, Baron Browning, Borland, Antwuan Jackson, Haskell Garrett, Togiai, Vincent, KeAndre Jones, Terjada Mitchell, Pope, Arnette, Tyreke Johnson, Pryor, Proctor, Riep, Okudah, many top recruits that have not played, underperformed in some respects, etc. that are sitting on our roster that could put together an elite defense. If Mattison thrives in improving talented players who are having fundamental issues, then he is the perfect hire with where we are at on the defensive side of the ball.

    Fundamentals were definitely lacking along the DL, LB'S and secondary. Add to that a complex scheme and we all saw the results. The first thing Day said about the D is that it would be fundamentally sound. Answer: Mattison

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Just imagine if we get an elite D back like days of old and Day keeps the train rolling with Fields.

    It’s just too encouraging to ignore. As many have said, the honest truth is that it is a lot like the product Clemson has fielded.

    I’m ready.
