DanMHey guys, since the regular season is in the books, I figured that I would share some research that I’ve done over the past few days. At the end of the 2009 season, we all saw the drastic jump in offensive production when we compared Dan Mullen’s first season, to Sylvester Croom’s last. So, since Mullen has now had 2 years to install his Offense and dig deeper into the depths of the playbook, I figured we’d take a look at how the Dawgs have progressed just under Dan. Not only will we take a look at the Offense, but the Defense as well. For that research, we will be comparing newcomer Manny Diaz’s attacking Defense, to last year’s Carl reactivestyle Defense ran by Carl Torbush. So, here we go…
