    Re: Defensive Breakdown

    Pretty good. The only personnel error I see is Land, who transferred to Troy.
    You said it, but we need improvement at rushing the passer and covering the middle of the field (LB, Safeties). I feel OK about the safeties, but I am not sure we will see an improvement elsewhere. Perhaps a change in coaching will be sufficient for some improvement regardless of personnel (can it get any worse?). ISU was 112 in total defense last year; a jump to at least around 80 will be needed to go bowling.

    And the odd thing was that we were 10th in the conference....

    Yep. KSU and A$M were below us, and we lost both. KSU and ISU actually were the same in scoring defense, but I guess we won the tie-breaker. Pass efficiency, ISU was 117 out of 119, while KSU and A$M were 95 and 108 respectivley.
    Pass defense ISU finished 116, MU was 117, KU 114, Ok St 109, KSU 106, UT 104, Baylor 103, OU 99, A$M 95, TT 94, NU 89, CU 72. The Big 12 likes to pass!

    Re: Defensive Breakdown

    When you said "defensive breakdown" I thought you were referring to half our defense's plays last season.

    I just logged on for the first time today and saw the thread title and thought the same thing.

    It was an interesting choice of words.
