    I hate to see anyone get fired. However, this is totally unacceptable. There is no way around it. Something has to be done about this atrocious defense. Maybe demote him, but you can't allow this guy to keep putting this product on the field.

    Found it interesting that the game-winning turnover was caused by pressure, especially from Ferguson. Obviously, White and WKU did not expect to see real defense employed at the start of their final drive. Caught White by surprise, and he fumbled.

    I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut that WKU's coaches BIGGEST concern, 2 mins left, trailing by 3, at your own 20 was scoring too fast! That's right, WKU figured they would soon lead 59-55 and didn't want to leave Tech's offense too much time. They fully expected to see that stupid prevent defense and WKU planned to take time off the clock and score with maybe 15-20 seconds left. Instead, we put some real pressure on White and got the turnover. I also think that was our ONE shot to save this game. Had White merely been sacked and lost 5 yards, it wouldn't have mattered. WKU would have been alert for pressure on the next play, adjusted, and then gone down to score and win the game.

    This is the worst defense I have ever seen at Tech. Worst than 2012, even worst than 1998.

    And how about our special teams coordinator?...... Gave WKU really short fields on two of their TD's, and then gave up the blocked punt- that's 21 pts, our special teams gave up.

    Don't keep our hope up this year - we will lose big at USM with this D.

    He is making $140k for doing a terrible job. We all would get fired from our job for doing such a terrible job.

    HCSH is in charge of special teams. He said it himself. He also said before the UTEP game that he was calling the defense from now on.

    Blame the 31 points allowed by our defense on HCSH.

    So if Holtz is calling the defense, shouldn't we save money and ditch the DC ?

    Special teams gave up 21 pts. Decent special teams and it's a blow out. I don't like the soft zone but I think that's what Skip WANTS to play based on comments....

    I agree with DFM. We shouldn't lay all the blame on the defense. The short field gave them two easy scores and of course the blocked punt. Making them go the distance (70-80 yds) would have at least given the D a chance for a turnover or at least took up more time.

    I think the theory behind that was, we have 2 minutes, let's blitz, if they score, we've got the ball with 1.5 minutes to win, if we hurt them, then we've got a better chance to hold the lead.

    Going the distance?

    WKU scored 28 pts on less than 8 mins TOP in the 2nd half. The TV guys made a great point, it didn't matter if WKU was looking at 40 yards or 80 yards, it would take mere seconds to score. Which is why they advocated for us to go for it on ALL 4th downs, no matter the distance. And the blocked punt drove home that point with emphasis!
