the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

|1 year 34 weeks ago||From Bacon on the subject||
I asked Bacon this very same question at a function and he stated that the administration really hampered his ability to get Casteel to AA. The budget that they set for the DC was less than what Casteel was making at WVU. The question then becomes, would you uproot your family for less money into a new town environment and additional uncertanties?

When Brian was doing his game analysis, the team showed a weakness with this type of formation to passes to the flats on swing routes. To protect for this play under the based cover-3 zone under, the SS would have position himslef to support the run or blitz, while at the same time cover the route. To over the route, he would be inside of the reciever and have to cover as the reciever heads out. It would also be difficult for the corner to provide aggressive support since he would have to drop back to provide the Deep 1/3 coverage.
How would the 3-3-5 protect for that? Would we go man more?
If our SS are fast enough, then could they drop back to cover the deep 1/3? But would that pull them from the line support role?
I know that it is just one play, but the main fustration of last year's defense conjures up images of the cornerback lining up 9 yards deep and the safety not being able to stop that pass.

My issue with the quote from Mack Brown is that if you had that level of talent on across your defense you could stop any type of offense. You have 7 guy in the back that can that can cover man to man and 4 guy up from that can get pressure without a blitz. If you had that, on any running play you could run/ pass blitz all day with 6 or more, depending on if the TE stays in for pass protection.
Am I confused about this?

Just called... the guy on the phone said probably not... due to continued showers and tyhe fact that it looks like it will not break until into the morning.
