I agree with everything you say. But I have always looked at the DC position at Alabama under Saban as a Mentorship. Nick is the guru and his fingerprints are on every position and game planning. Even the play calling is under his supervision. That is why you never see him fire a DC. He is the DC. So if you want to blame anyone for the performance in that unit then it needs to be directed at Nick Saban, not the underling.maybe, but really we've never had ILBS looks this lost before Golding. Yes, we've had the same scheme issues with the TE seam routes or RB wheels, but the ILBS were at least doing what they should instead of who knows what. I can't remember the exact season, but with either Pruitt or Kirby we had a run of injuries at ILB one year, and somehow that coach was able to get newer/younger/less experienced players out there and at least making the right reads for the most part.
