We went through this w/ Drevno. The man knew how to coach OL at Furd, knew how to coach OL at UM and did well for us in years past...but similar to Monte/Wilcox/Pendergast/Baxter, etc. etc. etc...they all forgot how to coach while at SC. Apparently Drevno was never allowed to run the physical OL's he was known for. Which begs the question: Why do young(er) coaches who've proven themselves elsewhere or are on the upswing of their careers, choose to coach under Helton and have their careers tarnished? Obviously Wilcox recovered, but only after a Wisconsin penance. What will ever become of Pendergast, Baxter, Tee Martin, Drevno? Back to the Mid-majors and hope you get another shot. There's one common denominator to all this mediocrity. Players like Darnold/Juju/Adoree/RoJo can overcome it, but they shouldn't have to. Last edited: Mar 22, 2021 Troy70 and Cyrus like this.
