I subscribe to the belief that you can't learn on the job at this level. While you're learning and getting better, so is everyone else so you're constantly behind. CJ isn't some 35 year old whiz with a tremendous amount of talent and aptitude that has to figure some stuff out. He's in his 50's and been at every level, if he doesn't have it yet, he's not finding it. His best bet is to fire his defensive coordinators and bring in a guy who has it and basically let him run the team while he recruits. I don't think that'll work b/c we don't have the money to bring someone in like that, but this setup isn't working.
The difference in hiring a proven DC won't be the money. We found/are finding 70m for a stadium project. The issue will be finding a proven guy who wants to coach defense at a non-BCS school.
This year still feels like 5-7 to me. Which was in the region of 5-7/7-5 that most predicted.
