Defensive Personnel

It is beyond my comprehension as to why with less than 2 minutes to go in an important SBC game, our defensive line consisted of a 220 freshman who has not seen extended playing time. Where was Handcock, Joseph, Cox, Council, J.Jean, Rush, Sollazzo, etc? Some significant changes need to be in regards to the defensice coaching staff.

Re: Defensive Personnel

They were where all slow individuals suppose to be when you need a pass rush, watching. It was a 3 man rush with 8 men back. You will not get a big time pass rush out of that. If you have/had been to any of the practices, you would have seen that the freshman you are referenceing has the best pass rush skills of all those you mentioned. Personally, I think he needs more reps in order to get into a rhythm as most pass rushers do. If you have a question about that defense, it should be how did 8 allow 3 to come down with the ball or why didn't we have WR's at the goal lne for the jump ball instead of the short corners that we have? It wasn't the pass rush, but again a coaching error that didn't think to call a time out with 9 seconds left in the game to put your 6'3" WR's to fight for the jump ball that was coming. I know that Bonner was a HS All American B-ball player, so he should have been back there. Stop ban wagoning your boys or friends as the freshman being on the field had nothing to do with the ball being caught or the inability of this coaching staff to make adjustments.
