Actually the offense scored 21 points in the second half against Memphis which is small considering the 35 points that the defense gave up.
As far as the defense goes, we were pretty good against the run. And we were pretty good against the pass at times. But the times we decided to play back on our heels and let the offense come to our defense, we sucked !!!
This, I call the Sklandany defense. If you saw the Memphis/ Iowa State game yesterday, you saw how to play Memphis. Relentless pressure on the QB and tight coverage on the receivers. Don’ t let them think. Force the action. Sure you will get beat occasionally, but nothing like if you let QB have all day to pick you apart. The Memphis QB will be in the pros next year.
And no one give me any of that crap about we don’t have the talent.
I agree, we don’t have the talent, but it is at the coaching level.
