It's been kind of a slow weekend for football-related news, but last night I sat down and graded the defense in the Sugar Bowl against Virginia Tech. Two freshmen (Frank Clark, Jake Ryan) graded out the best with two seniors (Mike Martin, Ryan Van Bergen) coming in just behind them. It was not a great night for the secondary.
