I would love to know what's going on behind the scenes right now in the WHAC. 

Let's be honest, UFM is as good of a politician as he is a football coach.  My speculative guess is that he finally hires the DC he's been looking for, while also demoting Luke to something that isn't over his head, like LB coach.  If Luke stays, Meyer will still have someone he actually wants in charge of the D, if he's offended and leaves for another gig, a great former player is gone without being fired.

I think deep down, we all realize that it's the defense that is keeping this team from being elite. Though until this loss, the argument against the '12 and '13 silver bullets never really kept much momentum.  Meyer's handling of the defensive coaching situation is crucial to our success for the next few years. It will be interesting, for sure.

 

Having said all that, I do think it's clear that the characteristics of an Urban Myer "coached" defense are starting to show, and will only improve -- Namely, disruptive stud D-lineman, and underclassmen that are big play makers.

RDS has very little to gain with a senior campaign.  He'll go pro, as he should.  Shazier has made steady progress from the beginning of last season to now, and has really turned it on late in the season.  His draft stock has never been higher. 

Braxton's status is more uncertain though.  He still has not reached his ceiling, but will be working with an unproven o-line.  Thoughts?
