Are we really running a 4-4?

In Birkett's article on the problems at safety (http://www.annarbor.com/sports/rich-rodriguez-doesnt-regret-position-ch…), he states at the end that with Brandon Smith in there we were actually in a 4-4 alignment.

Question to the coaches out there-- is that true? Granted I'm no coach but from what I can remember, it seemed to me we were playing almost more of a 46 defense with Kovacs and Smith rather than a true 4-4
