What he does at Ole Miss is really irrelevant. It's like comparing living conditions in NY versus BHM.It was obvous & I can see your point. But @BamaFan334 point was that Golding isn't doing himself any favors to make most of us so thankful that he is gone. This defense is better now without him. The LB play is greatly improved!
But, again, your point isn't lost on me either. Hopefully the DL unit can get their act together.
You're dense at times, Casey. I'm saying "it's coaching." It's also recruiting along the line.
If you buy a can of Raid, what are you trying to get rid of?
You can't but it is the DC and Head Coaches job to see that and bring in someone that can coach them up. If it is scheme then that is on the Head Coach to change.If the DL were hitting the right assignments the last few years this is a different story. They aren't. It's coaching. Ya can't blame a linebacker coach when the DL isn't doing their job.
Ole Miss & Miss State used to have fanastic, high ranking defenses under the direction of a Mr. Joe Lee Dunn. It used to be that was the only thing those Mississippi schools were good for.What he does at Ole Miss is really irrelevant. It's like comparing living conditions in NY versus BHM.
The points you're making on the DL are solid. But, umm, the LB play under Golding was average. And not just because of the DL. The DL doesn't make the tackles for LB's. The physicality of the LB play now is MUCH better now & it isn't limited to just one particular player. Campbell, Blackshire, & Braswell are all making solid plays. It's now not just one guy designed to make all the tackles.If the DL were hitting the right assignments the last few years this is a different story. They aren't. It's coaching.

GOOD ——they covered the over and I won some money. We have a great kicker. No injuries and defensive play.
BAD —— we have no stud wideout. It appears that the passing game is as finicky as a cat.
UGLY —— inconsistent offensive line (but I feel like they are slowly slowly slowly getting better).
The will be one thing that will need more practice on!The OL has absolutely improved some.... It isn't where is needs to be, or should be, but it has gotten better. Against A&M, they are going to have their toughest test, tougher than Texas... and I do expect some issues... but to their credit, they've made some strides.
I believe they have improved as well. When you say they do not play with passion not sure I agree with that. I will say if you are excited and young but you get beat a few times it is easy to get discouraged. I think that is what you are seeing and interpreting to be no passion or not caring. I believe they are giving effort just inexperience and technique issues maybe even pressing is getting the better of them at times during the game. As they have success their confidence will grow and then it will look more like playing with passion.You’re seeing something I’m missing on the o-line slowly getting better. On almost every snap someone misses an assignment or gets a penalty or just flat out gets beat. They don’t play with passion and there’s not an alpha. They’re obviously physically gifted but appear to be dumb as a sack of rocks. That or they just don’t care. Saban has landed numerous 5 Star linemen the past several years but I’d rather he go back to recruiting 3 Star and low 4 Star and develop them. Go back to finding guys who play with passion and have a nasty streak. Recruit linemen who are hungry and maybe not coming in with huge NIL deals. Do something different cause whatever they’ve been doing ain’t working. Of course I could say a lot of the same things about the d-line. During the meat of the dynasty Bama dominated the lines of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Bryce covered over a lot of issues that without him shine brightly.
