If Fickell leaves (still considered a head-coach candidate by Urban and others), who would you like to see as our DC. A lot of teams have brought in new DC's and with pretty much the same personnel, completely raised the level of play. I'm a Tennessee Titans fan and they brought in Greg Williams (of bounty-gate), who I didn't think could do that much with the play of the D...they've played completely different, remarkably better this year and play with way more confidence.
I'm not as familiar with some of the great D coordinator in the college ranks but I'm sure some of you are. Who's out there? I know some of these D coordinators like Stoops brother are great at coaching the D but it doesn't translate to head coach when they get a job and they come back to coaching D. I've always thought Bo Pelini was out of place as a head coach and his Nebraska teams play terrible D, but if he put all his work back into just coaching a defense (when he's eventually let go) I think he'd do very well, like Mike Stoops.
Nobody consistently looks great in this age of high-powered, wide-open offenses, but who's out there making a name for himself in the college ranks on D?
