Did Hoke call any of the late season games defensively?

    I know this is pure speculation, but I wonder if Hoke was doing the defensive play calling during the games we played well in defensively. Perhaps he had a few games as a try out.

    Does anyone know his overall defensive philosophy is?

    Don't know, but under multiple head coaches and DCs we have continued to play DB's with 10 yard cushions on 3rd and 6. Bye bye.

    Start 6-10 yards away from the WR until you're absolutely convinced he'll take the short catches, then creep up and let him blow by you. That's pretty much the philosophy I saw for years.

    Hoke sucks.

    If he had been making the calls and being successfull I highly doubt they would have fired him.

    Man am I stupid. I meant to say Frank Bush instead of Hoke. Since he was the original person wanted.
