Are backups getting signifcant snaps on defense?

  • Just curious if anyone has the numbers handy... it'd be interesting to see just how many snaps backups are playing, on average, in the tougher games (i.e. Clemson and USCe). Charles Goldberg has an article up about how the AU defense is finishing strong instead of running out of gas like they did last year.

    As the year began, there was optimism about improved depth this year on the defensive side of the ball... I'm curious to know how much it's being utilized. I know it sure seems like Bynes isn't getting much rest. Rocker seems to be substituting fairly well. And the corners seem to swap in and out, though it seems like Thorpe is always on the field... What about LBs and Safeties?

    I fully expect JADennis to come up with tons of statistics on a game by bame basis. ;)
