Its terrible that so many of DeMatha fans really don't want Coach Brooks to succeed. He inherited an absolute MESS that the god almighty C Baucia and McGregor left. The money for recruits is GONE, the alumni want to see him fail and half the returning starters transfered out. Was at the game Friday nite and what I saw was an offensive line where as these kids are now seniors and haven't played, I saw 5'8 quarterbacks trying to see over 6'5 lineman, small running backs and no receiver play at all. The defense was ok but small and missing several key components.
The kids that left hurt the program. Cockrelle would be the QB, McPherson the RB, Paul Harris WR, the Levenberry Kid LB, J Carlos Alston LB, that's 5 kids that would be starters and it's no telling who else left but losing those kids hurt badly. Do you honestly think losing all that and the money that Coach Brooks would be very successful this year? DeMatha's offense stink but with what they have it should but it looks like the same offense the ole ball coach ran last year, I formation, split wide and hand the ball off with the exception that you don't have D Morton, Sweicky, and a massive experienced OL. With losing Moore, Wilkerson and several others next year DeMatha will most likely be even worse but give the Coach time.
Watched Gilman last nite and C Baucia is NOT an offensive genious that some of you are claiming. Gilman basically run the wildcat and would've been much better off lining up Cyrus Jones at QB and give him the ball 30 times just as they did D Jennings last year. Gilmans offense under Baucia was nothing more than Gilmans offense last year but Cockrelle is a stud. DeMatha's program is in disaray because of the mess McGregor left not Coach Brooks.
