. At any rate, I doubt Sonny will make any changes after one difficult year. We're just going Johnny Tape-fingers and Gillespie figure it out.
I think you're right. For sure, JG has at least one more year. His D is ranked 6th in the conference (considering conf games only). Also he's held opponents below their season average offensive output in six of eight conference games this season. So, pretty consistent and not stellar but hardly fireable.
KB's offense has outscored conf opponents average ppg allowed in five of eight conference games this season. And we rank 7th in the conference in offensive ppg. Again, disappointing but hardly fireable.
With all that said, I hate hate hate soft coverage in the secondary and our abysmal lack of a pass rush. I hope JG get's that worked out for next season. WRT the offense, watching our offense during the second half of the WVU game was cringe worthy.....they were bringing more than we could block and KB never adjusted.....just let Josh stand back there for WVU target practice. Horrible. Pretty much the same thing for the entire Iowa State game.
All these stats are negatively impacted a bit by the inescapable fact that the entire team took the entire K State game off.
Finally, both coordinators can correctly point out we had a bunch of new faces this year to try to fill the shoes of a bunch of seasoned NFL caliber players. Hopefully, they are in the process of growing up.
So, I'm not holding my breath in hopes of staff changes prior to next season.
