Not going to happen.  If Withers was still our DC then yes.  Chris Ash and Fickell are all about keeping it simple and letting the players play.  Ash has run his base defense against every team we have played with the lone exception of Navy, due to their option attack.  Every where he has been he has run his base defense.  

Saying this, I do think that on 3rd down situations we could see some really exotic blitz packages out of a 3-3-5 or something like that.  That would not surprise me, but to say that we will come out in a 3-4, not going to happen.

I was talking with a long time bama fan and asked him about why they didn't use Henry more vs us and Oklahoma. He told me it is bc Henry is soft (and those were his exact words) he said he tends to avoid contact and goes out of bounds too easily and that he frequently gets tired and has to come out of the game.

I listened to him a lot in high school and one summer when I wasnt working. Say what you will about his takes, the one thing I enjoyed was that he would routinely admit that his show was about increasing listeners bc radio is an entertainment business.

Those were Allen Edmonds?  No wonder they looked so nice.  I'd heard that Josh was very fashionable, but the monk strap on the shoes confirmed it for me.

I agree.  The defense has not been getting enough credit.  For the VT game everyone keeps talking about our offense against Bud Foster's defense, but I guess I just don't see their offense scoring more than 17 points against our D.

I dunno.  You have some valid concerns and points.  I'm not sure though.  I feel like as defending champs, we will be getting a lot more Heisman voting eyeballs viewing our games.  They will see the plays that EZE and or QBs are making and let that speak more for their resume, rather than just yards alone.  If you look at the most recent back to win it, Mark Ingram, his stats won't blow you away.  He averaged 118 ypg and 6.1 ypc (1,658 yds; 17 TDs). It's because he was a dominant player on the the best team in the country.  The narrative is already set for EZE.  All he has to do is keep making people look dumb, score a few times a game, and stay healthy.

I've seen Mack speak on the news a few times and the kid incredibly smart and intelligent, humble, and hard working.  HE IS NOT AN EGOTISTICAL RECRUIT! He is a kid that wants to play football for a long time and understands that he needs to go to a place that will continue to advance his skills and improve his "brand" in order to be an attractive option to future employers.

Those were my thoughts exactly.  Maybe it would have been a good idea or heading into last season as we were going to be using 2 TE sets, but this year I doubt we will use those (unless Baugh really has a good fall camp and establishes himself a a player that needs to be on the field).
