I am very pleased with the improvement the D is making. It wasn't going to happen overnight with this many underclassmen starting. All in all I think Urban's genius is starting to shine through. It was difficult to see how well he was developing his players through the first few years, but if the fans aren't yet believers in his ability to develop his recruits then they aren't paying attention.
One thing I really noticed today were tackles being made with aggression. Players were angry and hitting hard, and not the arm tackles we grew accustomed to, but solid form tackles driving the offensive player into the ground. Frazier's caused fumble and a few hard hits by Vonn Bell come to mind. This is a great sign. We struggled at the beginning of the season, but are improving each game. That's a sign of good coaching and focused players.
I couldn't be more excited for Saturdays.
