    weather is going to limit what we will see

    hope for no injuries.

    Re: What do you want to see from our FB team during the spring game?

    I'm looking for improved defensive play everywhere. I want to see better line technique and getting off the ball and blocks quickly, unlike how we performed last season. Also better tackling is required if we're going to stay in games. So many times I'd watch Chizik's defensive plays have the play strung out to the sideline or stopped in the backfield only for the tacker to miss and not wrap up.

    I want to see us hopefully run a 4-2-5 base defense. Our sole purpose should be to stop the pass, especially in the Big 12. A linebacker other than Jesse Smith should be put in that can cover the middle of the field. I know he's a good run stopper, but he just isn't quick enough.

    The biggest thing I will be looking for is the defense to hold its own against our new passing oriented offense and th ability of the D line to put some pressure on Arnaud.

    So you want better tackling and Jesse Smith off the field? Maybe I'm off, but Smith might be the best tackler on the field and the only one besides Leonard Johnson that made plays consistently on defense. I thought the D line was the main problem, they were terrible last year.
