Should be fired before he gets on the bus headed to the airport! 

You can finally count me as one who thinks we need a new DC.    I also still want a new OC too. But this game is on our defense. 

This (getting rid of Reffett) may be something Baker has to do.  Unless he wants to see 3,478 fans seeing Mason Fine off on Nov 30.

Jennings, and it would be awfully difficult to install a 4-man front defense in the middle of the season, so I’d bet the scheme would remain in place.

I am far from being a coach, but I always thought the reason you ran a 3 man front is that you didn't have enough talent for a 4 man.

It's a part of it, definitely. But it's more of a philosophical decision than a snap decision going into a season like, 'man we better get into a 3-man front because we don't have the dudes'. It's recruited with the idea you'll only need X amount up front to survive up front. It's also employed and often times mainly employed pending your conference situation, offensively. It's not a bad gig for a spread em out, air em out conference like CUSA. Also like the Big12, which is why Matt Campbell installed it at ISU when he took the job there. 

I don't personally like it because you leave too many vulnerabilities out on the field at all times. It's as if a team is trying to stop the pass and the run at the same time instead of just doing what 100% of the really good defenses in the history of football do, stop the run. Defenses that can stop the run can typically get decent to good pressure on QB's as well. I like the 4-3 with a freak playing the will so that the D can be turned into a 4-2-5 without even changing personnel if time is limited per the situation.

You should be our DC.

Reffett should have been fired last season. I think most will agree his time has run out.

However, please do not lose all of our focus on one guy. 

Lanston is equally inept at coaching the offensive line and has let the best QB we have ever had be destroyed for far too long!

In regards to the secondary not turning back to look at the ball, that is taught at the earliest levels of football. It's football 101. Watch your receiver, when he reacts, you turn to look back. This is DIVISION 1 FOOTBALL. That concept, along with form tackling should be installed in them by now. 

 

God forbid they be taught to watch the receivers eyes and turn when the receivers eyes start to get big when the ball is arriving. Our secondarys heads might explode. 

Preach it, brother. You are right on. I explain this very thing to my wife seems like every week when were giving up an unlikely completion or a PI.

But with, you know,  a DC that will actually leave campus to recruit. 

That would be ideal but at this point I’d be satisfied having a DC that could call a damn ballgame. We have a recruiting coordinator and others to pick up the slack as needed. Let Biagi or a position coach be the recruiting guru and let someone that knows their stuff run the d. Is Reffett known as some master recruiter? Outside of Ekeler who was co-dc, have we had a DC that could recruit well since Dickey left?

Yes, so some concepts of it. He pulls a linemen and inserts usually a hybrid safety to run a stack 3-3 defense. 

Sometimes he'll pull an interior DL and bring in an extra LB.  Especially against pass catching RBs or a big running QB.

We need all hands on deck when it comes to recruiting.  I don't ever want to see an official coach not bust his ass on recruiting.  It has come to bite us more than once.  Only the HC and his 11 assistants can coach on game days and go out to recruit. 

Having a RC is important to coordinate the recruiters efforts and make the campus visits memorable, but they can't actually go and recruit.
