    I liked how candid he was about our poor fundamentals on defense. The fact that the offense is ahead of the defense at this point illustrates just how poor we were/are on that side of the ball.

    Sounds very intense and is not afraid to address the weaknesses of this team. I am like the rest of you, I want a team that can tackle and disrupt offenses, and to me, that is more fun to watch than trying to outscore teams.

    Re: Rhoads write up

    I found his comment about the SEC interesting.

    “The SEC is very simple on the defensive side of the ball, as there is not a lot of scheming being done. They are playing with athletic, speedy athletes. That does not mean we have to scheme the heck out of people, we have to play sound and smart. We have to tackle well.”


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Makes sense to me, the better athlete you have, the less scheming you have to do. Great athletes make great coaches, just ask chizzball.

    i thought it was a great article and interview from coach Rhoads. I like how realistic he is and also knows that we need to improve greatly on defense to compete this year. i really think we found a good coach here.

    Re: Rhoads write up

    we definitely have been one of the worst teams in college football the past 2 or 3 seasons at tackling and wrapping up. We had relied too heavy on turnovers so it's basically at the point we couldn't stop a single 3rd down to save our lives, that MUST change or we will not see any more wins than we are now.

    Re: Rhoads write up

    Good article talked a lot about tackling well.

    Why would he have that on his mind?
