I want the guy that can best stop or slow down Lincoln Riley whomever that is. I also want Lupoi as co-DC for his recruiting. I've read that he has to have play calling duties and I've also seen that as long as he's a co-DC.

Tosh is a terrible DC and playcaller. He apparently does not understand advanced secondary schemes and strategy very well. We would give up 100 points if Tosh went against Riley.

I didn't make myself clear. I want a DC that can slow down Riley and Lupoi as co-DC without playcalling duties. I posted this yesterday.

 

After some early struggles during the season, Saban stripped Lupoi of defensive play-calling responsibilities and handed them over to co-defensive coordinator Pete Golding, according to sources. Saban had poached Golding from UT-San Antonio in the offseason in part to alleviate concerns about Lupoi’s inexperience with the secondary and as a play-caller. Still, word is Lupoi seemed overwhelmed during practices and didn’t totally grasp situational play-calling. While he was still heavily involved in the defensive game-planning, there was no question Golding taking over play-calling represented a demotion of sorts for Lupoi barely into the start of his defensive coordinator stint. Additionally, it was clear within the program how much Saban valued Golding, especially given he fended off other schools including Ole Miss in order to keep Golding at Alabama. It gave Lupoi reason enough to look for a soft landing place once Alabama’s season ended.

Karl Scott is ranked #2 in the country right now by 24/7. 
Jeff Banks is #5

This is true, but keep in mind who they're recruiting for. 'Bama is not a hard sell. 

Still, being coached by a coach who just came from the most successful team in nation should have it's appeal to the recruits.
