No. Lackadaisical head coach who lets the kids do whatever they want and their egos to swell replaced by a much stricter, hard line coach of the buy in or bye bye type. Bound to be problems, especially with headcases like Wilson that have looked like problems of the mental sort to begin with. This is year 1 of the Leach regime, it'll take a little time for the Wulff recruits with sour attitudes to either buy in or be weeded out completely and be replaced with the guys who want to be there.
Wilson reportedly was ready to quit the team in the spring but was talked out of it by other teammates, the kid is just a moron. He became my favorite player as a true freshman, and now I'm just ready for him to be gone. I'm expecting a Dwight Jones type flame out at this point. Decent physical talent overridden by a terrible twos attitude will send him deep into the draft or out of it completely and will quit on whichever team works him out as a UDFA when he isn't coddled and celebrated.
Year 1 with Leach has been rougher than many expected, but taking into account the move from a coach like Wulff to a coach like Leach with the type of players brought in and attitudes fostered under Wulff, it makes sense, and perhaps Coug fans just got overly optimistic because a big name was brought in. It'll get better.
