Sounds like things are going pretty well. If the D gave up big plays, then the arm-flapping and running to open space concept has already set in.
I guess 4850K or wtf ever Grantham makes doesn’t buy as much as it used to.
He’s makin’ a cool 1 mil now…
“You can’t give up big plays on defense, but overall it was a good first week.”
Bwhaaaaaa, haaaaaa, haaaa!
That was the money quote.
I almost shed a tear and gave a dramatic clap when I read that.
“We didn’t come to paint.”® We came for Todd™®©.
“Big Game Bob” ain’t got nothin’ on “Big Play Todd”!
Never too early for UGA to scout campus locations for that Petrino statue.
Whoa! Awesome! DIF… tighten up … bring your A game. Joe has it going on. 😉
Not only that, it could be an even more awesome year for the Louisville defense if one of the several things Rhaheed must do is learn Todd’s playbook (assuming that Bobby and Todd have not moved Rhaheed’s playbook)
Man that is awesome. I can see myself watching a couple of Louisville games this season just to check in…
Definitely gives some meat to the talk about Pruitt’s simpler schemes. I was worried that was partially just happy talk, figuring even Grantham probably kept things fairly simple when he was first installing a defense.
Somebody pass the Kool Aid. 🙂
Two key phrases in that report. “A couple of long touchdown passes” and “we are all trying to get on the same page”. It’s like deja vu all over again.
Remember, JHC is available 🙂
“I may have to use two towel guys this year,” Grantham said, “One upstream and one downstream…so Coach Petrino won’t see the look of abject horror on my face when Clemson has the ball.”
“..you can’t give up big plays on defense” Petrino said.
This is gonna be fun to watch.
“We still have good players; we’re just all trying to get on the same page now,” Burgess said.
With a Todd Grantham defense, they’ll STILL be ““just all trying to get on the same page” come November.
Thank God for Bobby P!
What’s up with the handle, Dawg? Are you over in the Rhineland?
I’m anxious to see if the “Bushed” Doctrine is still in excuse-use by Todd.
Wait until Bobby’s players begin to disappear only to find they have been hurled into the Outback of Grantham Land.
AusDawg 85 has the handle on it.
Louisville had better insist on classroom presentation of Grantham’s scheme along with written tests to see if all on the D are on the same page; else, when injury strikes, Todd has his built-in “Not on the same page” excuse entering the game.
Faculty Staff football tickets application just came with a new April 30 deadline!
Man Louisville fans are going to be pissed! I’m glad it’s no longer our problem
There but for the grace of God and a dumbass AD with 1 mil go we.
To get great coaches … you gotta spend big bucks. Pay the man!
We’ve really gotta send the Texas AD a case of Sweetwater 420 for hiring Charlie Strong…without him, none of this would have been possible.
Grantham’s first season as DC at Louisville. 2014 Louisville record: 6-6 regular season with a bowl loss= 6-7. (Sound familiar? He’ll undoubtedly blame it on the O having a new QB.)
Burgess said Grantham’s new scheme is “pretty complicated”
Thank you, Bobby.
The “pretty complicated” comment struck me. I never knew how much credence to give to the talk that Grantham’s schemes were more complicated than necessary. I wondered if it was just our disgruntledness that led to looking for things to blame…but hearing it from another team makes me think that there was definitely something to it.
