I’ll post here because anywhere else you have to reply to other posts a zillion times before you are deemed worthy to start a thread. That’s BS, I don’t want to work that hard. So the question is will the defense be better this year, will it be top ranked 35? I Say YES This is based on more player experience and who we play. Playing Army will be great for stats. I'm also liking UCLA on the schedule. Kelly won't have them firing on all cylinders so we may get a good defensive showing against them as well. FAU doesn't have a QB when they come to town either. The schedule says OU should have good stats. If they don't then FIRE IRON MIKE. After October it will be a different thing but we should still remain top 35. Murray and Motley if they are coached right should be better this season. Also Norwood seemed to be coming on at the end of last season and reports say he's bulked up a little. Plus it seems like everyone on the D line was playing hurt last season as well as Kelly. Lots of reasons to see hope on the defense.
