  • Chavis was hands down the best option available for us.

    That said, we are still several impact players away from making the jump needed to compete week in and out

    But after being absolutely terrible the last 3 season, glad to have and agressive and proven plan.
  • #9 by ALLVOL on 07 Apr 2018
  • I DVR the game and just watched it. Without question the team looked better overall. The defense looked really good and will only be better by season start.
    I told y'all that you will be happy with Chavis and you will see I'm right. Some idiot UT fans got spoiled with him and seem to remember him quite differently than reality. If he isn't wearing Orange then I'm glad he's in Fville.

    I agree they're not as fast as they could be. But even you have to admit they were in position all day, played aggressive, smart and with discipline.

    Did they know the play calls? What a moronic thing to say. Have you EVER watched scrimmages of ANY team?

    Yeah, I would hope they would have a pretty good idea based on formation and motions. I mean, thatís what they do for every opponent. Do you even football?
  • #15 by ErieHog on 07 Apr 2018
  • There is a noticeable difference when you see people play their natural positions, rather than being horned into a makeshift conversion project.

    This is the most promising area of this football team.

    Exactly.  They looked comfortable with the positions they were playing.

    Ok, you're brilliant and the rest of the world is wrong. Coaches are stupid for even scrimmaging because obviously both sides know exactly what the other is going to do, thus rendering a scrimmage worthless. Dang your a genius...

    Iím not sure a vote of confidence from you holds a lot of water, but if you agree with him more power to you. Iím just saying the D has pretty good idea whatís going to happen. If they donít weíll have issues when the season rolls around.

    Alright I'm gonna try to help you out. Chad's offense is similar in many ways to Gus M's in that not only do they go fast but there are very few sets for the offense yet the offense rune a bunch of plays from those very few sets. The offense determines the play according to how the defense is set. So the defense will see essentially the same offensive set all the time and not know what's coming. Sure there are nuances such as 3rd and long or short distance plays. But what makes Morris offense affective is speed and presnap reads/adjustments according to the defensive set.

    I can appreciate your knowledge of the O, but that doesnít mean there arenít tendencies and after 12-15 practices the defense doesnít recognize what the options are for the O given the formation.

    You could be right. Chadís and GMís O tricks the D every time. No one even watches film on them b/c itís pointless. You can never have a good idea whatís going to happen for any given play...
  • #27 by Hawgboy64 on 07 Apr 2018
  • The only thing you can really gleam from a spring game are fundamentals and athleticism. 
    For the most part I thought the defense was sound, but we are lacking at receiver.
  • #28 by RaisinHog on 07 Apr 2018
  • Best thing i saw was that we swarmed too the ball on D every group we had out there in both halves .. it was always 11 guys going too the football and I love that

    Amazing what coaching can do. Imagine the difference once more speed is injected, and possibly (I know this is a rarity, basically the bigfoot of Hog football) actual depth *gasp*

    Most of it looks to be just on scheme alone;  there's a lot of coaching left to be done, but this shows just how left-handed we were trying to convert to the 3-4 last year, when so many said 'We could not be worse defensively, by going to the 3-4'--    not all change is improvement, but going back to what we have recruited personnel for 3 of the last 4 years should help a lot-- and showed that it was helping, on Saturday.

  • Anyway overall impression was that a great defense like bama looks like they have 13-14  guys out there.  We looked like we had 12 a lot of the times. The defense was where I was the most pleased.
    But remember the offense has a muzzle on, so looking forward to seeing it open up this fall. We really need more zip but it looked like the qbs. are being taught "touch" on the short ones and to put air under those 30-40 I didn't see the straight drop called bomb could be wrong.

  • I agree that both the offenses and defenses shown Saturday were base. But it sure looked like a faster overall defense on the field than it has the last few years. There is certainly more athleticism, and like was pointed out by Guv, there were a few certain starters out (most notably, Agim).

    Like another pointed out, there was a LOT of group tackling. There were people flying to the football. And, even from the base 4-3, there was control at the line of scrimmage and ample penetration on obvious passing downs. They certainly didn't show a lot of the 3-2-6 "mustang" (at least I don't recall it--I admittedly was paying more attention to the offense).

    I really expect the defense to come on strong this season, especially if they can stay healthy. I at least don't expect them to just "sit back and try to contain." They ARE going to attack, I fully believe that. And there IS some significant help on the way before Game One. Hopefully Dorian Gerald will be able to step in right away and provide depth at DE, and while there isn't a lot of talk, I expect Billy Ferrell to step in right away on the interior. He may not start, but I bet he pushes the starters. I don't see him redshirting. In time, I think he will be a sure-enough monster.

    I left the game with pretty high hopes for the defense. I think the offense is still very much a work in progress, but I think they'll get there. I'm more worried about special teams play than anything else right now. I am least worried about these coaches. I just think these coaches--this whole group--are an awesome group. And that is big-Big-BIG for us.

  • having curl, calloway, pulley on the field at the same time make the defense faster. looks like they are going to use ramsey like chavis did myles garrett at a&m, just go get the qb on every play.

    that makes the defense faster already

    Yes it does.

    And I agree, Ramsey is going to have to be accounted for on every down--ESPECIALLY obvious passing downs.

  • Look slow to me.

    sub freezing temps, sleet, new defense install.

    all things that could slow a person down no?

    I thought they did well considering Sosa wasn't there.  I mean hell if we just move to middle of the pack from last in defense i suspect that will equal a few more wins alone.
  • #42 by urkillnmesmalls on 09 Apr 2018
  • I saw more hard hits in that spring game than I think I saw all of last year during our SEC schedule.  Seriously, I'm not even kidding. 

    I have a feeling we may give up more big plays, but we're going to force teams to make quicker decisions.  Hopefully that will make it more likely for us to at least beat the teams we are supposed to beat instead of letting them do what they want to do and stand back there uncontested and fling it all over the field.  I've seen enough of that...
  • #43 by nchogg on 09 Apr 2018
  • It was nice to see some hard hitting and tackles. I feel our D will be salty. In the red/white game they practice against the same guys day after day. It's really no indication because it's planned. As Coach has said in an actual game situation there are game plans, analysis and attacking tendencies of the other team including adjustments during the game which I had not seen much in the last few years. I am excited about this defense and hope to see them keep offenses on the sideline.
  • #44 by ballinhog on 10 Apr 2018
  • Guys like Foucha, Mason, Bishop, Gerald, Parker and even Ferrell will add depth and speed immediately. I think all these guys are in the top 25 roatation on defense this season
