    RickyFlair got a reaction from java in Steve Sarkisian named head coach at Texas   
    These staff hires tell me two things.
    We are finally acting like the wealthiest athletic program in the country instead of just talking about it. 
    If Sark can put this quality of a staff together it’s obvious his coaching peers believe he’s a dude. Kid’s don’t want to play for pretenders (I won’t mention any names) if the coaches believe in him the kids will too.

    Great scoop for TFB. They made this call last night and had sat on it for 24 hours before that.
    About the hire:
    HOME RUN – How many times have we whined and complained about our inability to make half time adjustments? Kiss those days good bye!!! This guy excels in game planning, mid-game adjustments, and PLAY CALLING.
    His weakness is recruiting but given a couple of years of success, his defense should recruit itself here at Texas. Nevertheless, he is surrounded by good recruiters on defense. He is innovative.
    This guy should have been the first name out of the hat, IMO. I know we pined about Muschamp and others, but Sark could not have chosen a better DC.

    Coach K seems to run a base 2-2-2-5 (nickel) defense similar to what Gary Patterson runs. Two DT, two OLB/DE, two ILB’s and 5 DB’s. Very interesting defensive philosophy and very Sark like in terms of innovation.

    When I first looked at it I thought it seemed “gimmicky” but as I looked at what they do from a personnel standpoint it’s pretty solid. Two big/athletic  DT’s. One OLB/DE that sets the edge and rushes the passer. One OLB/DE that is speedy to rush or drop in coverage. Two traditional ILB’s to “seek and destroy” and 5 DB’s who cover, run support or blitz. With our current DT’s size and athletic ability you are almost requiring a double team inside at worst the center and both guards have their hands full. Everyone else is one on one blocking. If we have any edge rushing from our OLB’s we should be able to  pressure with 4 and blitz packages could overwhelm. Two DT’s and ILB’s should prevent running the ball between the Tackles and our team speed already takes away most running to the outside. 
    With the right personnel and coaching (As with anything in football) it’s the ideal defense for the Big 12 offenses AKA spread. 
    Outstanding hire by Sark.

    Yes, Ash’s base was a 4-2-5.
    I prefer a 4 man front and I believe the 4-2-5 is probably the best defense vs the spread of any with 4 down linemen. 
    My absolute favorite defense is the 46 or “Bear” that Buddy Ryan made famous. The problem with running it in college, especially today, is the spread offense. Even before the spread you had to have 2 lockdown corners for it to work. In my opinion the 46 puts the most pressure on the offense. It is pin your ears back, get up field, attack mode.
