    WHY do we not have a DC?

    Does anyone else think it's a little ridiculous that we don't have a Defensive Coordinator yet? I mean... if satan(Gene) was still here and he didn't have one of his two new coordinators hired yet, this board would be going nuts. Why hasn't Paul filled this role yet? Somebody clue me in because it's starting to really irritate me.

    Because we are ISU and everything has to be difficult.

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    Recruiting. With a few weeks to go until sigining day, is it more important to have a large signing class, or a new DC? He needs to be out there solidifying the guys that we have committed and finding some other diamonds in the rough out there that are not yet solid on other schools. Not saying he can't interview for a DC while he is out, but recruiting should be his first priority.

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    As frustrated as I am, I'd rather see CPR take his time and get the RIGHT guy instead of rushing the process and getting a warm body. I'm sure there are some difficulties finding someone who desires to be in Ames, IA, plus the way asst. salaries are skyrocketing, the economics of it makes it tough too.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the rest of the staff announced by this time next week...

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    Since he has been a DC the past decade getting someone to fill the position today is not that important in my mind. CPR will be deciding on the defensive philosophy and get let the recruits know what kind of defensive they can expect to play in. For the next few weeks he needs to find another 7-8 kids to wear the cardinal and gold next year (hopefully they are all 6'4" and 280+ lbs and like to tackle).

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    We will have one named by tomorrow.
    There have been higher priorities, and with Rhoads knowing what defense he wants to run, getting recruits is much more pressing.

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    My gosh... relax...

    Hiring a DC is NOT and I repeat NOT the priority with a few weeks left to go until signing day. WHere do you want Paul spending his time? Recruiting or searching for a DC? For every day (or hour) he spends searching, conducting multiple interviews, etc. subtract that from time he can recruit.

    Hiring a DC may make some fans feel good now, but take a deep breath and let the man recruit. There will be plenty of time to get a DC. Some may say that a DC would help recruiting... sure... but the trade off of Paul's time is greater at this point. I have to believe every waking moment is spent recruiting new players, making sure existing recruits stay, and keeping in touch with current players.

    Relax...

    No I don't think it is ridiculous. I am surprised though that he didn't get your approval on putting off the hire until he found one he liked. My bad......

    Re: WHY do we not have a DC?

    I thought that everyone had read the press release by Paul stating that he really wanted to **** Clonegrad07 off. To do so, he stated that he will waiting for a long period of time before he would announce a DC.

    Sorry...that it had to be you. He must have known that you don't have any patience.

    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
