Alford has not been able to fashion a top-50 defense without Ben Howland's holdovers, and his past three seasons' defenses have ranked #118, #84, and #103 in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency (KenPom) on rosters he has constructed with players who have had multiple seasons under his tutelage.
Other coaches deal with roster turnover, unexpected academic casulties, injuries, etc. while having access to a shallower talent pool than Alford has. He really needs to put a good defensive team (at least top-60 AdjD) on the floor this next season for our sakes and for his.
