A pack line defense is not a negative.  Its a strategy. 

The negative part of it is that we are not very good at it.
 

So in essence, what you're saying LTD is that it's a bad strategy!!! ;D

Just par for the course for the man I call Laydown...

Mrap, I would add lack of direction or inspiration in his huddles and my favorite, timeout usage. If TO's kept at the end of games were $100 bills, Laydown wouldn't need this job anymore.

There are plenty of teams that can play the pack line D and succeed.

What identity did OP teams have? 

They were 86 in kenpom in offense and 219 in defense the year they won 6 games. 

We are currently 154 in offense and 77 in defense with this DL team.

The only difference between these teams is the players won some games at the end. 

The OP teams were terribly coached and suffered tons of blowout losses and lost to horrible teams in the non conf. 

I would say this current team has more of an identity than any OP team.


your post brings up something interesting, what is this team/a DL program identity?

- bad coaching
- no adjustments
- no discipline
- no offense
- pack it in defense

anything positive?

The choice between DL and Purnell is not one any team should have

For the 85th time, comparing this year, through about 60%, with the 40% of regular season games remaining is not a logical comparison. It is even more illogical when you consider that of the remaining games, they are in a tough conference where 83% of the games are against bubble or better teams.

Do you believe that the defense numbers will getting better or worse? Considering that the overall defensive efficiency for DePaul is 99.2, however, the conference only number is 107.6% with the tougher portion of the conference schedule upcoming... I am quite certain it will be worse.

So lets look at the effective FG%;

Purnell's last year, effective FG% offense was 50.7%; last year, it was 48.1%. Effective FG% defense; Purnell's last year was 50.8%, last year, it was 53.8%. So with those numbers, Purnell's offense was better his last year, and his defense was better.

We can revisit these numbers after the season.

6 Wins and he was fired - rightly so after all those years.  However, JLP hiring Da Loser was atrocious.  I would have rather had taken the chance on Aguirre or Corbin.  I said so at the time.  Many thought DL was the second coming...literally.  What a total fiasco.  Hopefully this ends JLP's reign.

HBomb - I'd have concerns if someone not related to Purnell would have preferred he stayed versus getting Hurley / Drew / logical hire.
