Good people as coaches. The line depleted, now is in the hands of a great upcoming coach. Linebackers and d-backs are in good hands.

I like their chances but it may take a few games with a young d-line. I wish the veterans would have stuck around 1 more year. Our young d-line improvement is the key i believe.

I don't think that it will happen this year. I think this year will be terrible. However I think 2017s defense could be pretty good. I feel better about the direction of the defense than the ofense.

To me, the 'D' coordinator is still a question mark. 'D' line is a question mark. Although I like John Parrella's chances of bringing them around.

Likely improvement in the DBs negated by weaker defensive line.

Did not see enough development last season to give me any meaningful reason to suggest that what is returning on the defensive side of the ball will be anywhere near what will be needed for a winning season.

Not this year with the lack of depth and meaningful experience on the defensive line. it all starts there. We're going in the right direction though.

Not sure. This year will tell a lot. I was hoping it was a aggressive defense, but I didn't see it last year. Only Nate Gerry at the end of the year got aggressive. No excuses this year, players know the defense, so now we will find out/

The D coordinator has NEVER had a top D so why would we expect one now - especially when the D line is so young?

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.

That's just part of the deal now with the portal, particularly after a coaching change. People may not care too much for it but we better all get used to it because it's not going anywhere.

If they enter transfer portal, they are not willing to work, and play tough. Let them go elsewhere

The new staff needs the freedom to get the players that will fit their system. The kids that leave or stay away are no guarantees either.

In the spring the head coach and assistants will start their work. They, in effect, will ride the horse upon which they came, the players on the field. It is up to the coaches to either develop those players or to fail. We will see the result in August.

With the coaching changes, its only prudent for players to re-evaluate their decisions to make sure its best fit for them. If I was a father of a player, i would encourage the re-evaluation process and if they re-commit, Great! Otherwise best of luck to both sides.
