The birth of a new blog series

With the announcement that Tennessee is poised to hire Boise State’s Justin Wilcox as its new defensive coordinator, that pretty much squares the circle.  With one or two exceptions (the dude at Army and VanGorder), every other name we saw tossed out during Mark Richt’s period of wandering in the desert after canning Martinez has either stayed at his program and gotten a raise, or gone to a higher profile program… and gotten a raise.

Look for me to track the performances of the various defensive coordinators this fall, primarily to see if they’re able to step up their defenses from the levels of 2009.  I just need a catchy name for the series.  “Pilgrims’ Progress”?  “Kirby’s Smarts”?  “Giving Us The Willies”?  I’m open to suggestions here, folks.

    The hiring of Wilcox is interesting to me because he’s got the type of resume I thought Richt should have been looking for in a DC. It’ll be interesting to see how he plays out up there.

    In the business world we like to see a 12% to 18% return on our assets. So I would look for an across the board reduction in scoring, yards allowed, time on the field, points given up in the red zone, and penalties of at least 12 to 18%. I would look to have a 12 to 18% increase in take aways, interceptions, fumbles recovered, fourth down stops, and defensive scoring. I’d want to see what my recent contribution to capital via increased salary, retirement benefits, and other perks yielded. Anything less than that we would have a board meeting and start discussing pink slips. Call it “return on investment”.
