An insider's perspective...for what it is worth...
I was traveling along the coastal areas of FL/GA/SC this past weekend and came across an alumni of The Citadel, c/o 1966. I asked if he kept up with their football program - turns out he is a major supporter of their athletics, particularly football. I had to ask his thoughts on Harrell, given our connection.
He bluntly stated that over the past several years, the defense was the only thing worth cheering for. He confirmed what we've heard - Harrell is a great man, really good coach, seems to game plan well. He went as far as to say that if it weren't for the defensive schemes and training of the players by Harrell and his staff, The Citadel would not have been as successful as they have over the past five years, one of the most successful stretches in their program's history.
Again, really nice to hear from someone who has lived with Harrell's defense over the past several years. Again, only time will tell, but always nice to hear another perspective.
