Same starters from clemson game. Maybe put Ken Carter instead of Blackson. Yea, its up to coaches.
I like the looks of that....just 2 pennies worth to add. I do think 54 starts at one DT. Also I think 5 starts, but 10 is one of LBs on field when we're in nickel.
Really want to see these guys just hit it once. All three phases-DL, LB, and DB- on the same page, for a full 60, bam! You know like a "Wow!" moment.Potential oozes.
War Damn D

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!!!
I am not as concerned with who starts, I just want to see guys making tackles. Our D has been tough to watch the last several years and I really expected to see a big difference last Saturday. That being said, I am optimistic with the talent and depth of our D coupled with BVG.
We will basically roll with what we did last week. I could see Therezie inserted into the lineup if he is healthy. We NEED Florence out there desperately as soon as he picks things up. As for MLB, get used to seeing #5 out there all season. BVG didn't spend a ton of time working on him in the preseason to bench him now. Sadly, he's all we got at that spot for the moment. My hope is that McKinzy can slowly but surely earn a few minutes here and there and get a feel for playing that spot in this defense. I have a ton of respect for #5 and I know a lot of people on this board will defend him til their dying breath...but we will never field a championship level defense with him starting. He is one of many issues we have on that side of the ball that need to be corrected. How do we do that? Get Foster, Johnson, Toney, and Davis on campus asap.
I have a feeling that CBVG will make some "attitude adjustments" in the tackling dept. He is the right man to get this job done. But not even the great satan had his ducks in a row first game of his career at the turd insitute of fanatics and freaks...Did he lose to ULL that first year?? I think so!
And I was very much expecting a better tackling performance. And if the idea is true that you improve the most from week one to week two....Then we are in good shape. We were in position to make some great plays on defense.....But didnt tackle. So I think they get that done aand we start hangin with some of the big boys.
I also think it very funny that folks say JH and DB didnt PRODUCE.... They totaled for 30 taclkes. And in any given game there are only 50-60 times a tackle is made on a defensive playSo I would say 50-60% of the total team tackles is a pretty good PORODUCTION WISE game. And that doesnt even mention the pass break ups and interception. Oh or the Sack!
We are in for some really great defense! Just gotta wrap UP!!!.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
Couldn't agree more
I believe what he is saying is why haven't we found a MLB and this staff is in fourth year.
So the staff shouldn't get credit for the 2 years Josh Bynes started at MLB? We are just beginning year 4 so Id give Holland a break for now. How many tackles did the DE's\DT's have Saturday night? Hard to be productive at LB'er when the ball carrier is getting to the 2nd level untouched.
Josh Byrnes was a starter before this staff got here so they shouldn't get any credit for recruiting him. Keep making excuses for him, your entitled to your opinion as I am mine. I'm pulling for him to do well just as everyone else is but he is in his 3rd year now and the light just hasn't came on for him or for any LB they have recruited for that matter or they would be giving someone else a opportunity. Our LB play needs to improve tremendously if we are going to get better on defense. D tackles don't normally make tackles there the ones taking on the blocks, so i dont know how many tackles u expect a DT to make.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
would love to have LO at MLB but I just don't think he'd have a clue there. Maybe move Nosa to DT.
