    Hopefully the field hasn't been mowed since the Oklahoma game.

    But I'm guessing we don't really change too much. We already play a pretty conservative D designed to stop the big plays. Maybe less blitzing than normal.

    Keep him off the field. Long sustained, clock gobbling drives by our offense..... or have Givens light him up.

    I'm getting the Shaky Smithson's just thinking about that guy. That video didn't help.

    He was making the OU defense look silly.

    Don't think Givens is going to have the chance to wind-up for a big hit....

    Id say we also need to worry about Stedman Bailey, he has more yards, better average, and TDs.

    Also a Biletnikoff finalist.

    Just need to tackle him before he gains any yards.

    Nothing against Tavon, but there is some horrid tackling and coverage in there. Most of that could be stopped with better coverage and fundamental tackling. I trust in Wally to solve this issue.

    I expect our guys to make big plays in the defensive backfield. Pick 6s. One each for Klein (for the record) and Reeves (been close a few times and overdue). Great way to enjoy Senior Day.

    The tackling is the concerning part. Based on our play this year, I'd rank this team at #3 (only ahead of 2009) in terms of fundamental tackling of the Rhoads era. We miss a LOT of tackles.

    We also need to clean up the responsibilities of the players if we want to slow them down. Defensive ends can't crash, defensive tackles have to demand double teams, etc. Irving HAS to learn to stay home or they're going to cut back across the formation right behind him. Defensive tackles demanding double teams leaves the linebackers free to roam the field. Tavon Austin can't hurt you when he's running side to side looking for holes.
