Harsin- has finished his first season on a 5 game losing streak. AU has blown a lead in most if not all 5 losses, and looked inept in several 2nd halves of said games. Already fired 2 offensive coaches and Friend's future appears to be unclear.
OL- Harsin and the entire offense have been limited in what they can do by a group that isn't SEC average esp. in run blocking. Pass blocking hasn't been as bad but not great. Not sure how to split this and overall talent.
Defense- I only put them on here because of Mason's lack of substitution, which led to some 2nd half fatigue.
Lack of overall talent- Minus Tank, not a single player on offense would see significant playing time for any of the top half SEC teams. And not many middle tier teams. Defense is in better shape but McCreary is the only real elite guy there.
Gus- took an absolute wrecking ball to OL recruiting. Just unbelievable at this level. In an era of everyone throwing the ball around he left an OL that struggles blocking, QB's who cant complete basic throws and probably the weakest WR group in the SEC. Just a train wreck.
And I'm firmly convinced getting rid of Gus was the right move, the mistake was keeping him around too long. I'm also not sure hiring Harsin was the right move but hopefully things work out.
