    What has changed Mac to Chizik

    In todays Blog post on my site, I took a look at the stats from the first two games of last year, vs. the first two games of this year. Some things were what I expected (turnovers are up), but others surprised me. It is definitly a different offense and defense.

    One thing I didn't add was the other change was punt returns went from 7 for 71 yards to 4 for -5 yards. Ouch

    It's harder to pick Chizik out on the sidelines from up in the nosebleeds than Mac.

    Re: What has changed Mac to Chizik

    Maybe Chizik will be lucky in the BIG games where Mac wasn't.

    So far he is not to lucky in the small games. Mac was.

    Dan McCarney's South Florida team gets another upset, knocks Auburn from rankings... and I suppose nobody's surprised about this?

    Doesn't mean he played no part in it - just don't make it seem like he won the game for 'em.

    Re: What has changed Mac to Chizik

    I'm surprised they beat Auburn, but I'm not surprised that USF is having success. They were a bowl team last year and could make some waves in the Big East this year. Having Mac as an assistant coach obviously won't make or break them, but it probably doesn't hurt. He's a great motivator as its often said, so thats got to be helpful to a team on the brink of becoming a contender in a conference that is improving every year.

    It will be a surprise to Wally Burnham that Mac is defensive coordinator not just one of his defensive coaches, d-line to be specific.

    Re: What has changed Mac to Chizik

    Were you more surprised by the changes in defensive results or offensive?

    Re: What has changed Mac to Chizik

    Fine.... Dan McCarney's South Florida University defense
    ...call it what you want, I call him a 1st year coach who oversaw & answered his defenses actions in a game against Auburn University.

    Actually Mac is Defensive Line Coach and Asst Head Coach not D coordinator.

    And come on people Chizik has had this team for less than year, had to recruit on the fly and has only a short time with these players to get to know them and implement his system. This basically still macs team. Give chizik some time.

    Re: What has changed Mac to Chizik

    You're jerking yourself around if you think Wally Burnham doesn't have DM input on nearly every defensive scheme they run. Too much experience and success (Iowa, Wisconsin, Iowa State). I'm sure if Wally wasn't around in the spring then DM could have had his job.
