And ShermanOaks said it several threads down: BK does this and it works. He did it against Oklahoma in '12, he did it against FSU this year. But his ego never permits him to retain the lesson.
It's Kelly's ego, not his ability, that has been and will be his undoing. It's why he has to surround himself with small-timey, unthreatening assistants. It's why he has to blame the players for his failures. (Hear the postgame press conference about how the regular-season losses were because we had turnovers and "didn't make kicks"? How about because he "couldn't coach snaps and holds"?)
Maddeningly, his history says this is just an interruption in his downward swirl.
I didn't see HH giving any ground. I didn't see BVG doing so earlier in the year, or Denbrock, or Alford.
At the same time, there sure wasn't much in the November performances to suggest that the offense, defense or kicking teams were receiving much critical thought.
