If Bumpas isn't available...

Go get this guy:

Boise State Defensive Coordinator Justin Wilcox

If you watched Boise State against Oregon at the beginning of the season or the Fiesta Bowl last night, you saw a defense that was aggressive, covered receivers, stopped a potent running attack and brought pressure from all sides against a pretty good offense. Just looking at his defense's games this season, the only really bad game they had (bad being allowing a team to score at or above their season average) was against Louisiana Tech on the road (Dooley's squad scored 35 in the loss against their season average of a shade above 29). Yes, they played some truly abysmal teams in UC-Davis and San Jose State, but they did way more then held their own against some of the better offenses, as well, holding Oregon to 28 under their season average and TCU to 30 under theirs.

Imagine what he could do with a team who's star freshman player wasn't nicknamed Canadian bacon because he was recruited from, you know, Canadia.

  1. I thought the exact same thing as I watched the game last night.
