After the announcement of Malzahn being our new head coach, I read up a little on HUN and its affects on the defense (i.e. why do the defenses of a lot HUNH teams stink). The small amount of stuff I ready suggested that you need an aggressive style defense that gets after the opposing offense to get them off the filed quickly. Suggesting that you need a blitzing style defense that may give up some big plays but that will be more likely to get the opposing offense off the field in 3 in out rather than one of those bend don't break style defenses that tighten up in the red zone.
Anyone have any insight if this makes sense or is true?
If so, I think Ellis' defense is more traditional. Any concerns there?
Thanks for the insight?
Over? Did you say over? It's not over until we say it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell NO!!!
They called down the the thunder and now they got it. Tell them hell's coming! You hear?! Hell's coming with me!

The more successful defenses these days or the ones that give offenses trouble mostly play tight man coverage most of the time. The problem with this is for some reason our DBs either aren't good enough to do that or that's what the coaches thought anyway.
I really like the fact that Malzahn said he wants to mix up the looks other teams get from the defense.
Ellis Johnson seems to have always been a zone guy who likes to get pressure with 4 linemen. This is what I've seen Auburn do for the past 10 years under Tuberville and Chizik. This is why I'm not sure he's your guy.
There are a lot of good defensive coaches out there and the bottom line is you have to have good football players on defense or it doesn't matter what you do.
