I have two things I want to address concerning the defense.
First, according to what I see on the two deep, we have Van Bergen, Martin, Banks, Roh, Ezeh, Mouton, Gordon, Kovacs, Gordon, Rogers, and Floyd as starters on the D. Not a single true freshman, so why all the talk about how "we are so unbelievably young on D". Yes, the two-deep adds freshmen, but 80% of the plays we're not THAT young. Now before all the haterz come out.....I'm just putting this out there, for the sake of discussion. Don't freak out.
My second point is about the general tendency to criticize a team with a good offense but a bad defense. For some reason, it seems that having a crappy offense and a great D gets a lot more love than having a crappy defense and a great O. For example, I don't think people would be freaking out about the offense if we had won every game 14-10. My question is, why does it matter? Whether we're winning 10-7 or 42-35, winning is winning.
To ask for a touch of defensive improvement is certainly not unreasonable, because this D just got torched all day today. But, great start to the season, 5-0!
