    Why does Wally get a pass from most posters

    I agree the offense is beyond bad. If we arent getting stuffed at the line the QB is running for his life or the receivers are dropping passes. My problem is most are laying all are problems strictly on the offense. Time of possession is what everyone hangs their hat on. Saying the D is out there way too much but in most cases TOP is not that uneven and the D is giving up points right and left. These are short drives, long drives and everything in between. We may be able to throw a few good series together but I dont see the love. Yesterday we could have put ourselves in great position having TCU at 1st and ten at their 1 yard line. 74 yards later TCU has great field position. The D get a turnover but in our territory. How many games have we given up a long drive at the end of the game? I think Wally has done OK but I dont think he should get a pass.

    So we are complaining about the defense getting a stop?

    He doesn't. The defense has failed this year and he and many others are held accountable.

    Offense scores 3 real points against a horrible TCU team AT HOME....

    Defense gets blamed.

    OK

    Slow down. The thread you linked clearly asked why Wally gets a break. This thread asks why Wally gets a pass. Completely different topics.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass from most posters

    For the last time, Wally has proven he is capable of having a good defense. This year the defense is down and has shown some promise from time to time. He's had one bad year as DC. He needs to be held accountable, but isn't at the point where replacing him should be part of the conversation.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass from most posters

    If it makes OP feel better, the rumor is pretty strong that Wally is retiring at the end of the year.

    My complaint was the D got a stop after giving up 74 yards in two plays. Give me more than a couple of instances where we had a punt downed inside the 10 and forced a punt. Most times it turns out more like the TCU game. I get the bend dont break but how about when we get a team trapped inside the 10 we try to keep them there and give the offense good field position.

    There's also plenty of times when the defense, while not good, has at least done its overall job and forced the other team to punt, only to have ISU's O return the favor by going 3 and out.

    Heck, they even made Baylor punt early. I believe they had K-State go 3 and out something like 3 times in a row when the game was still somewhat within reach (17-0).

    You make it sound like our defenses goal was to give up 70 plus yards, then get the turnover. It's not like the bend but don't break means you can't force a three and out. Wally's defense was still trying to force a three and out if not force a safety. Not to mention our defense really hasn't been as much bend but don't break this year. We've brought more blitzes and left the corners in single coverage more often.
