First, I did like the traitor, his book learnin' speaks for itself, and he proved some ideas as the secretary of defense under Menzies.
I'm guessing he was the one that concocted the sagging 3-2 zone that looked like a 1-4.
However, considering his first year, he didn't really exhibit any grand strategy.
He had the team conditioned, to be sure. But he pressed and played man D pretty much the entire year.
His focus was on fitness and wearing down opponents. He tried this even going only 7 deep for much of the year.
The breakdown and wear down was predictable ( and predicted here by many ).
After losing three of four, the players telling him they still wanted to press,
it wasn't a change of strategy but going deeper on the bench and spreading the minutes that resumed success.
Jans, on the other hand, was the Wichita State guru for strategy, match ups, and game planning.
He seems to have a wealth of practical strategy knowledge.
It's quite possible we've upgraded at coach.
Good luck coach - go Aggies!
