Our defense was destroyed today at Indiana.. Howeva, unlike last year, we seem to not blow assignment as much and we seem to be physically capable. We had corners relatively close to all of their receivers (which is actually improvement over last year coverages)
I may be wrong (and would love intrepretation) but it seemed that the number one reason Indiana kept making every 3rd down was that our corners made no aggressive plays on the ball. It seemed like our corners were not being aggressive and were unsure. In other words, they look like 2-3 freshman corners playing their first big game.
The learning curve for this should be really high and it seemed like they were smart enough with the coverages and athletic enough for the most part...thoughts?
