Tough to get one or two-and-done players to play the defense Howland stresses. He's not been as willing to adjust as Alford. He has tailored his system much more to his talent from his days in Missouri, to Iowa and now New Mexico. More of a player's coach.
A player's coach who is an asshole. But a sly asshole. He'll be smarter with admin/alumns. As a coach, I don't think Alford can hold Howland's jock.
