    I think that this year, just as in the past few years, Carolina's defense has been vastly overrated because their players look so imposing in the locker room. Physically, they are impressive. They just don't seem to have the attack mentality that a good defense needs. They are passive and tentative.

    This is nothing personal with Renner, it’s just business. And it makes a lot of sense.

    Completely agree. The defensive scheme seemed to be "stand back and hope they trip on their way to the endzone". Or did we think that they would drop 12 or more passes? Terrible/hard to watch game for me.

    Kind of like Lance Thomas and the recruitment of the cheater Shabazz.

    A through investigation of Dook is due.

    Went to the Garner vs Wakefield game Friday night...hate to say that you aren't too far off regarding the Trojans and UNC's defense.

    Renner does not look pretty doing it, but he continues to churn out strong numbers. Hard to see Marquise replacing him as a starter this year, but he will have all the opportunity to prove himself in the off-season.

    Back to the D (or lack there of). The staff had an extra week to prepare for GTech and this is what we get??? Yes, it is a new scheme, but what we saw yesterday was terrible.

    That philosophy is what caused the never ending investigation, scores of MAJOR INFRACTIONS, and the loss of................. well everyone in authority already.

    Like I said before the fedora experiment hit the field: he is rich rodriguez v.2. His offense will shoot the lights out, but his defense will be god awful and shoot themselves in the foot. 2 years until he's railroaded

    don't forget your D was actually responsible for 7 of those points, too!!

    :)

    they showed up strong, on that series!

    Unless Marquise can play defensive back, safety or defensive end, he's not going to help. Carolina put up 50 points and didn't win. I think that's one on the defense or lack of.

    I hope the defensive coordinator is renting and not buying a home. Lack of talent not withstanding, there is a serious scheme problems at UNC. They need to recruit better athletes on D and they need new direction once it gets there, Heels move the ball ok but Garner High could score 40 against them.

    You may be right but I was thinking more about next year...get Marquise started this year to see what he can do with most of the game.

  • Wolfpackalypse Now Nov 11, 2012

    I say just eliminate the QB position altogether and hike it straight back to Gio every play, that guy is off the charts good. Let those WRs do something useful and block downfield for him.

  • BeastOnTheHill Nov 11, 2012

    Renner is not the problem, LACK of anyone including coaches that knows anything at all about teaching or playing defensive football is the problem.

  • CarolinaMike Nov 11, 2012

    I'll be the first to say it; I think Marquise Williams should get a shot at QB. I like Renner but he does not have the speed or the mobility to run this offense the way it should be run. I came to this conclusion when he got popped at WF and it has only gotten worse. HE IS TOOO Slow.
