    Those top three positions to replace, regardless of what order they are in, produced most of the tackles last year. Production has to be replaced...replacing it with even better play will help this defense get back to the days that many of us have longed to see. And it all starts today. Which guys make the decision to be the next Ozigbo or to work harder than Mo Barry? I'm looking forward to seeing how this team looks come the spring game.

    Here is the thing that I agree with you on. Somebody will replace those guys. The tackles will be made. I'm pleasantly hoping that the entire unit of back ups as a whole improve over last year. I know we are wanting a couple of them to step up but the real question is can you get ALL of them to improve and create an entirely new and stronger defense in its entirety.

    So after reading this as well as the Offense preview, I think we can all read between the lines and say SSO is predicting 11-1 next year.

    We are going to see who steps up and gets the job done. This offseason is going to be big as far as development goes.

    I think you can do that in the B12 ... probably can't do that in the B1G.

    That's why I was wanting to get into the top 50. ;) I do get your point though.

    Here's my counter to that, and keep in mind I love your glass is half full take, Luke Gifford played 806 snaps and recorded 62 tackles. Alex Davis played 253 snaps and recorded 5 tackles... on the season. I'm not so sure just putting a replacement out there gets the job done. There's plays that Gifford made that Davis couldn't, and thus made it so our safeties got a few more tackles.

    Praying you are right tho.

    lol... between people taking the number "50" literally, people getting 11-1 from this OP, and other things i've had to correct, I may need to try a different typing style!

    Just use bigger letters.

    It'll all come out in the wash.

    Agree with everything however having the same defensive coordinator and the same defensive coaches will be a real advantage.The defense improved against Michigan State( not exactly an offensive machine) Minnesota and at times against Iowa. Not sure the defense really improves until some kind of pass rush returns.

    Different colored font seems to work for others.

    Ahhhh, this one is dicey. My office manager uses a really light blue font no matter how many times I've told her I can't freaking read what she's written. Not being able to read anything SSO writes will not slow down those who want to argue with anything he posts and might actually be entertaining reading for the rest of us.

    Forget I mentioned anything. Grate idea GNT.
