Out of curiosity, why do you not think losing an assistant of his caliber has that much of an impact? Of our 5 offensive position coaches from the 2009 team, we lost 2 to head coaching positions and the third had "22 years as an option offensive line coach at the Division I level" to quote his bio. In any business, it takes time to replace experienced, quality employees and, to the casual observer, it seems like we're suffering from those losses.I have no idea. Me personally, the Jeff Monken departure is message board drama. The talent gap is also not as wide as many want you to think, either.
