03:52 PM ET 11.15 | Texas defensive coordinator Manny Diaz entered the year as one of the country's hottest assistant coaching names. He was believed to be in line for a big head coaching job somewhere after leading one of the nation's best defenses in 2011. Things fell apart in 2012, with his unit plummeting from 11th in yards allowed to 87th. But are there still signs of improvement for the future?

Every other B12 coach votes 'yes'.

I would hope there is some room for improvement from 87th, lulz.

Just for the record, it's not coach Diaz's fault.

Agreed. Too many players being coddled.

He has too many underclassmen for what he has them trying to do, and he can't seem to accept that. Your LB's can't handle sophisticated twists without getting confused and losing gap integrity; stop calling so many damn twists until they figure it out (or until you replace them with guys who can figure it out). Your DL's suck at pass coverage; stop calling blitz schemes that have them dropping back to cover receivers.

Jury's out on everyone until the next three games are played. Maybe we clean house and go steal back Coach Boom, I don't know.

Negative. Boom is not available. Deloss needs to shop elsewhere.

Even IF ND lose to USC??? :)

I doubt he would make that bet. God knows I wouldn't. Never will involve myself where a possible consequence is flashing domer gear.

If Manny's D is starting to click, let's see how he builds upon it the years to come.

For the love of god, please shut down Collin Klein. If the Longhorns can do that...I'll change my handle for the first time in my 5 years on the site. I'll also deck myself out in longhorn gear.

Have you no shame?

He has strayed. I've called upon Domer extraordinaire, Van to make an intervention.
