Clancy seems like a very likable guy, knowledgeable, having experience in Dallas with Dion and at the D1 college level.
I like what he says about reps. He actually knows from experience just how many reps it takes to learn a particular scheme, now that tells me something.
Clancy seems like the kind of guy who would rise to head coaching level IMO.
I think USC did real well in getting Clancy.
I don't think he will be as crazy aggressive as people here expect him to be. I bet he is careful with the blitzes, 3rd and long for example. I noticed a few blitzes up the middle in the spring scrimmage with both linebackers. That will be fun to watch in games.
I hope he can teach Morgan to protect his edge from the sweeps and not get caught constantly taking that hard, inside slant to get the sack.
Clancy pointed out the play of Josh Shaw who can play either safety (perhaps interchangeable in Clancy's system?) as well as corner. So Josh with Demetrius Wright at safety & Kevon Seymour at corner gives 3 solid secondary players. Just need a couple more to step up.
All in all, I am excited to see what Clancy can do with the defense.
Thanks for the article Scott.....
I think this D could be integral in either going 7-6 like last year to 11-2 or 10-3, Last year if we made a few plays in the Stanford, GT, ucla and a few others we either win or we are in the game to the last second. This type of D can make turnovers and i can't remember the last SC team who made alot of TO's. Should be super exciting to watch. I also think this really helps us slow down Stanford and that running up and down the field on us.
