In my opinion this seasons success will depend upon the secondary stopping the constant busts in coverage that plagued us last season. Coach Ash's influence on the secondary will make or break this season. Giving up 2-3 big plays a game is unacceptable. We were lucky to have an offense that could score 45+ points a game to keep us alive.
Our offense won't match last year, but if the defense can work out their issues it won't need to. The 2013 offense was the best in school history, and it's unfortunate they weren't complimented by a competent defense. I have complete confidence in the offensive staff to re-tool the offensive line and to re-work the scheme to fit the new skill position players.
