New defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson says Gus Malzahn's offensive scheme that he once criticized will be good for his offense.
Best said...an old dog can learn new tricks.

Ellis' 4-2-5 should be a complement to Malzahn's O. It'll be nice to see this attacking-style D.

Is it me or do some of those comments sound almost purposeful in their difference to Van Gorder?
The "waiver wire" comment caught my attention, just since Van Gorder had referenced the same thing, but used it in the opposite way.
Also, I felt that Van Gorder's defense was very, very scheme dependent. Not that Johnson's won't be a matter of presenting good schemes as well, just interesting that he specifically points out that it's more about the players than the scheme....which to me, while not exactly the opposite of Van Gorder, it does seem to be a bit different, as we had some talented players that didn't see playing time because knowledge of the scheme was so extremely important. (how's that for a run-on sentence).
Not to say one way is right or wrong, as both guys have been very successful doing it their way, just saying they seem quite different to me.
