Defensive Back play
If our defensive backs play up tight on receivers, the quarterback will have a tough time completing 5/6 yard passes. I think we're looking at an outstanding season if we make them throw the ball over our heads.

Or, we could be looking at getting burnt every other play (see Illinois State or TCU).
I wonder if it's not necessarily a reflection on our corners that they are playing off - but our distrust in the safeties right now to help cover over the top.
Or...it could be the system we're going to play this year - or - beyond.
I'll let the coaches figure all that stuff out.
