Default Swinney: A lot of work to do on defense

Coach Swinney just said the Tigers have a ways to go on defense. He said they need to turn up the heat on a lot of those guys. Dabo said they spent a lot of time Saturday and Sunday teaching.

Is this finally the year where we see a drop off on the defense?

No way. Too much talent with a ton of experience in the back 7.

Trust in Coach V

Inexperience at DE and drop off in depth/talent at DT figures to be the source of frustration we will see posted here this season. I expect to see great plays followed by head scratching mistakes throughout a game. Back 7 is strong, but if you canít stuff the run there will be problems. This is a winning team but itís all about scoring by the offense, and Coach V figuring out how to overcome any weakness by his play calling.

Thanks for your comforting words however accurate they might have been. Sadly, I canít unread what you shared (sigh)...
