Only a handful of guys would seriously alter the fortunes of a program we know has systemic flaws starting at the top, and those guys (let's say LeBeau, Nolan, Orgeron, a rejuvenated Buddy Ryan) will not be coming here. I understand why we are all pining for Randy Shannon. He would seem to be a fantastic hire who could not only manage a defense but recruit an area of the country rich with talent. He would be a headliner. But could he totally alter the course of this program? Would he stave off where we are seemingly headed? I suppose a truly awful hire would speed up the inevitable. I am not hoping for that; nor should anyone. The fact of the matter is we will hire a defensive coordinator, there will be football played in the fall, and no matter what, the responsibility will reside with [ddiapos] for the fate and direction of our program. The new DC deserves our support until he proves otherwise. (My sources say did say Dooley interviewed JayVols at the Stone Drive Chick-fil-A. TIFWIW).
