    Tackling

    Do we teach our defense to push, not tackle? It happens all the time! What happened to a defender wrapping up their opponent and driving them to the ground instead of trying to push/knock them over?!

    Re: Tackling

    I assume you're referring to one play in the Colorado game.

    I think they've done a pretty good job the last 4 or 5 games of tackling. The problems seem to be mainly with guys not being in position.

    If you see an ISU player wrapping up, you know that Jesse Smith just made a tackle.
