    Phil Bennett

    He is currently Baylor's defensive coordinator. He was our DC under Criner in the 80s. Anybody remember what his defenses were like in Ames?

    Nope but i remember his name circulating a bit during one of our coaching searches. I think it was after McCarney.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    Phil Bennett was a d coordinator at Kansas State under Bill Snyder. He did an excellent job. His first wife was struck and killed by lightning while jogging out by the stadium. He soon left for the head coaching job at SMU. He failed at SMU like most of the others that have had that job. It must be very difficult to succeed there without writing checks to players. Someone should ask Craig James how it was handled back when he was a player.

    I seem to recall some posts here that Criner's defenses were decent.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    His defenses at ISU probably lacked talent. Everything looks better when you have the horses to run it. Also, I'm sure his schemes have changed a bit since the 80s.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    I always here about how Bennett is respected and quality DC. Then I watch Baylor play D and wonder what the hell happened. It's not like they don't have some athletic and talented players.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    I guess I don't remember stellar D under Criner. I do remember Fry's teams averaging over 50 points a game against Criner.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    bennett was good at k-state when it was a loaded talented defensive unit. he plays a risky, in your face style that doesn't do well against teams like wvu or tech who can match it with over the top athletes. he is very likable, sincere and good man. emaw.

    Re: Phil Bennett

    Well, having the worst defense playing against one of the worst offenses should be interesting. Does anyone know how many plays beyond 20 yards have been given up by Baylor?

    Re: Phil Bennett

    outsider's view. iowa state needs to run the damn ball, first. it is always too quick to chuck it down the field instead of playing more conservatively. i'd put that big assed back in there and beat people to death with him. your current running back brings no strength to the offense. good luck v. cubs.
