    Throwing into triple coverage is always a good idea.

    All copies of the roster were burned under McIlwain. It seemed the best way to protect the anonymity of the players and spare them unnecessary embarrassment. When Mullen arrived, he had to hire a census-taker to see who was on the team.

    I stand by my statement that our defense is one of the nastiest in the country.

    If we had a QB who could move the chains.....maybe our D wouldn't have to play 50% more of the time on the field than they normally would.

    I only hope going forward we play Trask or Emory - so we can get back to all three factions doing their share.

    I don’t know what you’re talking about. Our defense certainly looked “nasty” to me yesterday ... though, probably not the the sense the OP meant.

    That defense ended up being quite fine, my friend. Good call!
    #27 Total defense
    #16 Defensive TDs
    #17 First down defense
    #21 Scoring defense
    #13 Turnovers gained
    #10 Turnover margin

    For those who scrutinize these #s, keep in mind that we play in the SEC. It's one thing to have good scoring defense against AAC opponents. It's another to do it going against tough competition.

    Bazza right correct, we had a nasty defense. When is was good it was nasty and the couple times caught with pants down nasty. Nasty nasty.

    Our D played some really exciting football that fans across the SEC had to appreciate- if not on the losing end of it.

    Thank you, Davis! You're the man! ;)

    Believe it or not - I was going to bump this thread sometime tomorrow - after all the dust settled a bit more. ;)

    You know even yesterday when Trey Dean was getting ripped early on in the game...he came back in true warrior fashion and wreaked MAJOR havoc on Michigan's offense.

    We played a few games short-handed too. Losing Marco Wilson for the season as well.

    Huge respect for our defensive unit and staff!

    Our guys really "bought in", as Coach Mullen said in his presser.....

    Next year is going to be EPIC! :devil:
