DC Greg Schiano (Official Thread)

    The past 2 years have "felt" like the years we had Withers on staff with a "lack of cohesion" evident in the play. Was Schiano just stubborn in his lack of williness to get out of the "man to man' defense? This team won 12 games and a Big Ten Championship with an explosive offense and a horrible (#55) defense. Amazing!
    Fix the damn defense!

    I can't give him a pass. I can't lay all of the blame on the LB coach for the LB play. The D Coor should have the fucking sense to stop the nonsense of walking his fucking LBs up on the LOS where they can get held immediately and not see the play develop. That is on GS not just the dumb fuck they gave the LB position group to.

    If your DL style is beating your one on one blocks then your LB should play off. If your using a Ravens style where DL controls gaps and absorbs blocks then the LB can be more aggressive. I think we need more cohesion in what each unit is doing and thinking.

    Here’s the thing and it’s undeniable. The defense got scorched 2 years in a row by inferior teams....and I mean scorched.

    Each season those losses were overwhelmingly the defense’s fault and they each cost OSU a shot at a Natty. That’s unacceptable.

    I sure would hate to cast aspersions on Coach Johnson and his D line for any reason. Therefore, problems if any have to lie behind them.
    How in hell did we ever get him away from the Lions?

    I could do without his scheme but he does have head coaching experience and he’s a strong motivational speaker as a coach. I have to think he was very important during Urban’s suspension considering Day’s corresponding lack of head coaching experience.

    Another thing that’s never set well with me is the fact that perception wise we just “borrowed” GS for the short term and I don’t think that has helped at all in terms of defensive cohesion, recruiting, etc.

    It’s kind of like hiring a former employee back. Usually not a great idea. I know he wasn’t a DC here before but it’s just always felt like his time here was totally temporary and I just don’t think that’s been very helpful from a chemistry perspective if nothing else.

    At any rate, for all the talk about scUM's master of defense DC, Don Brown, the guy is one terrible recruiter that I wouldn't want on our staff. That is a major area where Schiano has him beat. At least our defense has the talent to compete against the best, and not just settle for beating bottom feeders

    There is a "disfunction" in the defense and that is job #1 to get fixed by Day. LJ Sr doesn't look like the "problem" so just who is the "problem? It's been a 2 year issue. It sounds like a Schiano/Davis problem.

    I don't know how well it's tracked but I remember Urban last year emphasizing what an important role GS played in the recruitment of NPF. I don't know any specific defensive players off the top of my head if that's what you meant but all in all I don't agree that GS isn't/hasn't been a good recruiter.

    Here's a list of the top recruits that Schiano has brought to OSU, and it's a heck of a list, and I'll JUST mention the defensive players, like: Okudah, Wade, Proctor, Pryor, and Fuller. Not to mention the guys he helped with on offense: Ruckert, NPF, and Matthew Jones.
    That's some serious talent, and IDK if Grinch has the name and experience to bring in the same amount of top flight talent, just yet.

    Here would be my test for staying or going. Get DE Zach Harrison to commit to the Bucks and you keep your job. He goes elsewhere, so do you.

    I think that recruitment is on LJsr, and not so much Schiano...
