    His defense and his let our secondary people play 5 to 7 off the wr was a joke.

    I'm thinking theres at least a half dozen coaches on the "Mean Green" staff that formerly wore the "Cardinal and Gold".... Dan McCarney, John Skladany, Mike Grant, Nick Quartaro, Noah Joseph and Mike Nelson.

    Whatever problems there were during the McCarney years, Skladany was not one of them. Good coach.

    You have no clue what you are taking about. I wouldn't trade Wally for anyone, but Skladany was a great defensive coach and I think I missed him more then anyone after Mccarney left

    For three quarters, he was great.

    His fourth quarter defense cost us the North two years in a row.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I think the kicking game had a little to do with that, don't you?

    That's also attributable to lack of depth, a consistent problem during the McCarney years.

    Absolutely. As well as deviating from successful offensive game plans.

    I was more referring to the consistent pattern of changing our defensive game plan from an aggressive, attacking style, to suddenly playing our corners 10 yards of the ball late in the game and allowing teams to pick us apart up and down the field.

    It might have been more attributable to the head coach, but on both of sides the ball we consistently changed our game plans late in big games where we held a lead from an aggressive game plan, to a conservative plan, and proceeded to **** the game away.

    Agreed, our prevent defense under DMAC was a disaster.

    Ironically, one of Wally's defensive strengths has been the prevent. He and CPR are masters at sitting on leads, even small ones. I felt like the amount of yards TCU gained on us was a little inflated because our defense did such a good job making TCU burn clock on their last drive.
