Defense.


Posted: Sep 9, 2012 6:31 PM
 

Maybe i am the onle one concerned about our defense? Is Venables D a upgrade? I know we played a lot of guys yesterday. but we gave up a ton of yards. Thoughts?

I promise you are not the only one. You are probably number 223,456.

Everyone is still taking terrible angles, but at least the linebackers are attacking at the line of scrimmage instead of just standing there waiting to get blocked like last year.

Secondary looked better this week, if we'd just turn around and look for the ball when the receiver does and avoiding stupid PI penalties.

We won't know much until a few week from now.


the only way i'm not concerned is if BV is sandbagging and

The only sandbagging was playing 80+ players.***

Everyone keeps saying this but did no one notice that all the starters on defense, including Anthony, Goodman, Meeks, etc, played late into the 4th quarter?


Certainly not all the offensive starters.***

Edited to reflect change. I do acknowledge that we pulled basically all the offensive guys in the second quarter.


a handful of the defensive starters came back in

in the middle/late 4th quarter---probably to spell the guys that had been playing most of the half.

There were definitely some teachable moments in the game yesterday. That said, we did play a lot of players and seemed to be introducing some different wrinkles that I don't recall seeing against Auburn. I would not read much into struggles against Ball State or Furman. The key is how we learn from yesterday and next Saturday and bring what we learn to Tallahassee on the 22nd.

get fired at 9AM for not having done the job yet?

Of course we have problems on defense but for heaven's sake give BV a chance and enough time to fix it.

BV had to tear out before he could remodel. Somewhere toward the end of this season we should notice radical differences in what BV started with and what we will end up with.

You hit the nail on the head. You can only do so much with players you did not recruit and do not understand their skillset until a few games in. This is def not is first rodeo. Things will get better. Wait and see.


Yep, because op and others are wanting BV to be fired

most of us missed that, but you guys get it

With all that being said the secondary did show improvement yesterday. I do recall our offense being vanilla early last year.


Don't question the D...all the lightweights on the board

I think a lot of us are concerned about our defense,but if you honestly thought Venables was going to give us a championship defense in only his first season,then maybe you need to go back and reread world history 101;Rome was not built in a day.


Remember last year's Wofford game?


Posted: Sep 9, 2012 7:25 PM
 

We were tied at the half with WOFFORD.

Pretty sure we'll be okay this year.


We did have a new offense last year. It took a couple of

games to get them clicking. Hopefully the defense will improve the same way this year. I just hope they figure it out in the next 2 weeks.
