Lest we forget that Charlie did almost the exact thing in the season opener against G-Tech. After spending the whole summer practicing option, talking to option coaches and studying film, he names Demetrius Jones as his #1. It was a bad first half for all concerned and Charlie pulled the plug right before halftime in favor of Evan Sharpley. As it turns out, Demetrius was no more to blame for that G-Tech beat down than Jonas Gray for the USF fiasco. All phases of that 2007 team were terrible. I also believe deep down that Demetrius/Evan were both keeping the position warm for Jimmy's return. BK's Irish teams have no identity in his 2 years. Is it defense that defines his tenure? Is it exceptional Special Teams? What kind of offense should our opponents worry about? Who knows. I don't think BK even knows at this point. Sometimes these coaches get too smart for their own good.
