    Default Defensive Information:

    Its looking like we will be more of a 3-3-5 Defense this year mixed in with the 4-2-5 that we have been running. I believe this is the influence of the Gibson hire. Sounds like he and Hux have worked well together thus far. I am cautiously optimistic...

    You run the defense best tailored for the talent on the field. When we had a slew of four to five NFL ready DL's it made sense to run a 4-2-5.

    Now, perhaps, not as much.

    I think the 4-2-5 was more about lack of LB depth. That has been rectified the last few years. We will see both but with the talent at LB now you will see more 3-3-5. As I understand the 4-2-5 is still the base defense.

    The coaches are really high on all the talent assembled at LB. Gonna be interesting what State pulls out of the hat on D this year.
