    Sorta' like the chicken-or-the-egg dilemna. You could say the offensive players benefitted from the system Borges installed, or you could say the system that Borges installed "unlocked" the value of the talent on offensive side of the ball. JMO, but I think for all the bad things folks had to say about offensive coordinator Hugh Nall last season, he he shown this year that he is one helluva' O-line coach. The O-line has made THE biggest difference in the team this season.

    That being said.........it's my opinion that the answer to your question is, "neither."

    It's Gene Chizik and the remarkable job he has done in crafting one of his best defenses ever. When you consider what they have achieved (as a unit) this season, especially after the players that departed for the NFL (Karlos Dansby, Dontarious Thomas, etc), it's really an effort deserving of Asst-of-the-Year consideration.

    Either way, if Tuberville is going to take the criticism when the team struggles, then he's due the credit when it suceeeds, JMO.

    Sorry bro. I was with you until this statement. That honor belongs to the defense Saban and Muschamp built last year. Maybe you were talking about the best defense AU has had.

    yeah he said HIS DEFENSES. I was actually about to bring up the def coordinator as doing the best job before seeing caddi's complete response. saved me the trouble.


    if you take every ACC and SEC team and choose the best scoring defense, Va Tech is 2nd with 12.4 while AU is 9.6 (the tenths may be off, that was from memory). that's dominating as LSU's last year though not in the same class as that team was its still freaking amazing what he has done to replace those studs. Dansby is just sick. I cannot believe they replaced his leadership and talent. Jason Campbell deserves as much credit as anyone though. happy for that kid.

    Yep. In my haste to point out who REALLY had the best defense ever, I mis-read the post. :grin: I stand corrected - again. :cool:

    Is anyone else seeing a trend? Florida fires a coach with a winning record yet the coveted one goes elsewhere. Notre Dame fires Willingham and gets turned out by Myer. And don't forget a few years back the whole Nebraska situation. Look where they are now. I'm thinking these coaches with some stroke are black balling these universities with an unspoken pact. Looks funny anyway. I'm all for it.

    Yep, I actually meant one of Gene Chizik's best defenses ever , meaning in his career. I don't believe this defense is as good as LSU's '03 D, but they've had the same effect on opponents......pain and destruction.
