I am not trying to suggest we are somehow going to be goodish at both.The problem is that we have finished in the Top 50 in defense efficiency exactly three times in the last 19 years. #9 in 2005 with Wayne Morgan, #47 in 2018-19 and #42 in 2016-17. Versus finishing in the Top 12 in offensive efficiency in 6 of the last 8 years. I know there are different ways to skin a cat, but ultimately we haven’t shown the ability to be anything better that mediocre on defense for the last 15 years.
I think the offense has to step it up and, again, the defense has to work better than four plastic flamingos and a couple of deck chairs this time.
Elite on offense and passable on defense is our calling card.
