I know I shouldn't, but I cannot resist going over to the butta hurta and reading Marshall's columns and then reading the responses that are not blocked. Itis a real "guilty pleasure". After every story, they follow like sheep telling him how wonderful the story is and how he nailed it. They now believe Gus is great because "PM" has told them how organized and hard working he is. They now believe Tracy Rocker is coming as the DL coach and will be great. Maybe he will and maybe he won't, but if PM says it, here come the sheep. Last time I checked, the DL of the Titans (where Rocker is the coach) sucked. I don't think the Titans would cry if Rocker left? Will Rocker be a better college coach - who knows. If you read PM, Ellis Johnson is at the very top of the defensive coordinator list, and here come the sheep. Again, maybe, but he sure has moved around a lot and was a total bust as a head coach. Truth be told, he is like a lot of coaches, pretty good when he has good players.
I guess most fan bases have some of that. But they sure look like easy sheep to lead on the butta hurta.
I expect you could go back and find some PM columns blaming Gus for their offensive problems in 2011 when Chizik decided to go NFL on everybody.
Rocker was the best position coach the Barn had in Chiz time there. Dline had a massive drop off the past two years with Pelton. The guy is an excellent college position coach.

Thanks for the update.
Yeah, I would much rather Rocker stay in the NFL. He's as good as there is as a DL coach.
PM is a horrible writer in my opinion. I did the 30 day trial over there and what I found hilarious is that it seemd that 75% of their threads were questions for their moderators. It was like those clowns were incapable of independent thought and needed their mommy and daddy to provide them with direction.
"Quit trying to make a play and do your job!"
What's funny is a couple of weeks ago PM stated that if GM were hired, discipline would not be an issue because he is very strick and demanding on his players and most importantly doesn't put up with the stuff GC did. Most posters fell in line with that thought until someone posted "isn't this the same guy who welcomed with open arms the biggest cancer on our team in 4 years...Michael Dyer?
