I got to thinking about our defense tonight. Not about how bad they have looked but how many games we have missed out of our 2 deep roster. First we lost Adam Griffin during the pre-season. I believe he was slated to play in the 2 deep and we could sure use him in my opinon. We lost Tommy Shutt for 6 games. Washington for 2 games, Roby 2 games, Bryant 2 games so far. Then you get into the fact that we almost have 2 defenses. One against spead teams and one against power teams due to the fact you can't trust 2 of our linebackers to play every down no matter what type of team we play. Basically it seems to me that either due to injury or scheme we have not had the same defense 2 games in a row and they don't get any consistancy. Add to it that most of the starters only have a handful of starts and I come to the thought that I am not ready to write them off yet.
My other thought is about the MNC game. I keep hearing a 1 loss SEC/ACC/PAC12 team could pass us in the rankings if we are undefeated. While the media may try to promote that story line we should remember the Coach's are the one to vote not the media and I don't think the coaches no matter what would vote a 1 loss team over an undefeated OSU. Now I don't think we would get in if we were a third undefeated team but as long as we are the only or one of two undefeated teams thinks will work themselves out no matter how the media tries to spin it.
