    Tell you what, its amazing to see the defensive stats and how they improved as the season went on when we were at full strength. What could have been.

    Also, Baumann’s #s are a bit deceptive, he was excellent at pinning teams down this year inside the 20, and especially in the 10. I was impressed with the freshmen ST unit this year.

    Overall, lot of positives to build on, but clearly, a more established run game and less sacks is a must next year. Word is, we may see some staff turnover, but it may be due to health concerns. Other than Rice, he is gone from S&C, will be interesting to see who they hire.

    It sounds like you could be talking about Bible (health concerns). Just curious if you’ve heard anything. Any word on Archer, by any chance?

    Interesting what statistic can show.

    According to the Bowl Subdivision (FBS) National Player Report Passing:

    Rank 20: Robert Griffin III, Baylor

    Rank 22: Mike Glennon, North Carolina St.

    Rank 23: Andrew Luck, Stanford

    Rank 69: Russell Wilson, Wisconsin

    WuffDad, do you have a link to the webpage that says that?

    Re: the running game
    We were missing 1st string RB (Greene), 1st string FB (Gentry) and you could say 1st string QB (Wilson) who was a first class running QB when he wanted to be. Just getting Greene back will make a huge difference next year.

    Sorry about Bible’s health, not sorry if we replace him with someone who is a little more up to date with offensive schemes. Archer? Hard to go against his results when he had healthy linemen. Those DB’s will be just short of awesome when we get the 4th starter back — Jarvis Byrd. Brandon Bishop should be 1st team All ACC next year. Don’t know about Earl Wolff (but I bet the rbs he’s laid the wood to do.)

    Saw where we’ll have 17 off 22 players returning off the current two-deep on both sides of the ball next year. 34 of 44 players with extensive experience is a pretty stellar starting point.

    I’m sure those numbers didn’t include Moose or Byrd, as they aren’t currently listed.

    Sorry about the delay, just got back to the computer.

    Re: the running game:

    Although Greene may bring something a step above, I give James Washington a huge amount of credit this year. For a small guy he ran hard inside, and helped us RAM the ball down the UNX throats down the stretch. When the line gave him somewhere to go, he made the most of it. If the line doesn’t show up then Mustafa won’t fair any better. Together with Creecy, we’ll have great RB talent next year – just get us a line to play behind.

    I’ve begun to skip worrying about the skill players being recruited and only look for the O and D linemen. They can make marginal talent perform acceptably well. One big concern I do have re: recruiting is the absence of any Linebackers.

    Have to agree with Greywolf:
    “Archer? Hard to go against his results when he had healthy linemen. ”

    I’ve spent my share of the season disgusted with our defense – especially the pass coverage (although statistically we are “surprise” above average). Early on in the season a friend who knows one of the ACC statistical people who is on the sidelines said that that guy reported that the Def schemes being called were correct but the players were not following the plan. Combining that with the injuries, missed tackles, blown assignments, we had a real mess. It appears that once those things were corrected, we actually had the defense we all heard about preseason. I’m not so sure that Archer is or was the problem.

    The health in question is not Bible. Its premium info on the other boards, so I won’t detail it, but if you look at somethings that happened before the season, it kind of adds up. That being said, sounds like most of the info sites are waiting for things to be officially said, if they are publicly, because its a private matter.

    I really don’t get the hating on Bible. I think he calls the best game he can for the guys we have. The Clemson game was fantastic and he exploited everything, so was the Maryland game. Lets be real, the Maryland game was us shooting ourselves in the foot with 3 wtf fumbles and a pick 6. Thats not on coach. He worked that Maryland defense in the second half, especially when he stacked Creecy on GB and exploited their linebackers.

    Would I like to see Bible not coaching receivers? Yes. I think that should be a position with a dedicated coach, or TE/WR lumped together. But as far as QB coaching and OC, I think Bible is legit. He also signed an extension last year, so he’s going nowhere.

    I believe Archer did as well. I hate on Archer pretty hard, but when he has his players, man does that defense rack up stats. Combined with the LB coaching of Tenuta, I think we are set for years to come, barring unusual levels of injury. Archer never got the right guys in at Kentucky, and clearly his scheme doesn’t adapt well, but it will be interesting to see what we do next year, I wouldn’t be surprised to see 4-2-5 and 3-4-4 coverages.

    WuffDad: the stats you linked to were simply completions per game, not a ranking of proficiency (as evidenced by the fact that Glennon trailed Luck in nearly every statistical category on that link).
