While it certainly isn't guaranteed, ST is something more susceptible to a "quick fix" in the off season. (New kicker, iffy kickers going to kicking camp and ironing out their inconsistencies, one of our slot-type ninjas settling into reading return lanes with the experience, ect.). I would like to think the D will improve just with the added size and experience, but something with that many variables is harder to assume. Has anybody done the stats on Wisconsin to see if their kickoff squad is especially bad, or was it us starting to find better rhythms/returners?
that is nice bonus change
