Could someone explain to me how this defense can stand up against more traditional offenses like Bama, LSU, and Georgia that rely on more power running. I understand how we might benefit against the spread type offenses but I'm having concerns about our chances against strong teams with one less true LB.
That question is almost impossible to answer in general. Against traditional offenses the star will probably be replaced by a true LB. Another way is to do run stopping blitzes with the star. There are a lot of ways to stand up to the power teams.
You could also run a bear type defense where the star is essentially lined up on the tight end if there is one.
Obviously a lot of schemes you can play around with. Good question though and one I love talking about.
