It's the coach. It's his responsibilty to install and teach plays that give us the best opportunity to win. If our kids aren't good enough to run his plays, he should have different plays.
The players have to put the work in off the field learning the system and in the film room , Lathers has already stated that there are a lot players not putting in the extra work . So, I would not say it's all coaching, the players have their role and part of it is we do have have all the personnel to run the scheme but the flip side to that is a lot of our players did not fit into a 4/3 scheme either so no guarantee that if had not made the switch that we would have been better .
Actually he didn't say that Conklin would be a good idea for Defensive Coordinator. He was simply questioning why the fact that he coached at Citadel eliminated him from being capable to be a DC.
No one is happy with this defense, the loss of a couple of guys in an already weak secondary has proven to be abysmal, combined with starting a new scheme and it was the perfect recipe for disaster. Once we get additional personnel that fit the 3-4 scheme things will get better. Remember we are running this base defense with mostly Wilcox's players. We went and recruited as many as we could to make this work but you can only do so much in 1 recruiting class. Look at who our top defensive players are aside from the best players from last season, the other names you hear of making plays are JUCO guys we brought in to make as early an impact as possible.
I am just as frustrated as everyone else but firing someone and making yet another change only makes all of this transformation take even longer.
Go Vols, Keep the faith we will be back....soon

Me too. Drizz is making far more sense than most these days.
