Works both ways. Maybe it's harder to admit it Bud is better as a Michigan fan? Either way both are great and it's stupid to debate who is better because Hand likes both and I'd expect both defenses to be good for a while.
Stats prove otherwise.
Thought Michigan grads/students were supposed to be smart?

It doesn't work both ways.
Greg Mattison has won a NC as a DC, Bud does not. Mattison has been an NFL DC, bud has not. Michigan had a better defence last year under Mattison, VT did not under Bud.
Everything I'm seeing points towards Greg being a better DC except for the fact I'm not wearing Hokie shaded glasses.
I think average starting field position was a factor that worked against VT, as we had Zoltan Mesko punting and this game was decided by special teams and one more turn over (VT-2, UM-1). That said, it was Mattison's 1st year working with players that had played terribly the year before, that were a bunch of 2-3 star kids that had been RichRod recruits, so they did stink. Which is exactly my point. UM is recruiting so much better...they're a program one the rise and will be an NC contender once again, within the next 2-3 years.
You should really spell all the words in your post correctly if you're going to mock other people for their intelligence.
Your defence of Mattison is right on.
I should. So should your Michigan friend who is defencing Mattison above....
Defense is spelt defence in Canada.
Now you know.
He's Canadian. The way he is spelling defense is correct where he lives. Not sure if you're trolling or not.
Your facts are off. Come back when they aren't wrong.
He's right...cheque your facts.
Not going to lie.. I laughed.
Solid +1. You damn Canadians and your spelling.
Mattison was DC at Florida with Urbie when they won NC...but wasn't with Baltimore when they won either SB.
Way to get right to the centre of this issue.
Canadians only use that form of cheque when referring to money.
Blame it on Montreal and them French Canucks. I'm a Michigan boy, south of the border, but I speak Up-per, eh.
Me...personally, maybe a little Hoke shaded, but certainly not Hokie shaded.
Didn't Mattison's NFL defenses get worse after he came on and better once he left?

Consider the talent levels they work with. VT will have their first ever 5 star defensive recruit in the 2013 class. Bud has done it with a lot of 2-3 star talent, not a lot of 4s, and no 5s.
Not only that he was co-defensive coordinator with Charlie Strong.
Congratulations, you've described RichRod's defensive recruiting.
Funny you had the #8 class in 2006, #10 in 2007 and 2008, and #11 in 2009.
I wouldn't exactly say you had poor recruiting with Rich Rod. Poor man's excuse to use.
Half of those classes never touched the field.
