Re: Staff Shakeup Ena out as DC

Hennger played DE at both USU and Utah, you may be right with Caden, Devon was one perhaps the only one that was strong enough to play inside, 265 is plenty big enough for a D.E. as is 260. I believe Baker was more in the 245 lbs range. Even though Nick was our best defensive ends at times, I still...

Re: Staff Shakeup Ena out as DC

Stacy will be in the box calling the D. Frank will be on the field. The lack of strength is a issue I believe was a big problem up front as does G.A. Perhaps with the young offensive linemen. Not the senior laden defensive line. Those guys were all played out of position. That's poor scheming. You ...

Re: Depth Chart conjecture with shifting back to 3-4 base defense

That all ok but who would you have started at D.T. ? The truth is all of kids would not have been effective at D.E. Gary has stated time and time again that this team was not strong enough. How much weight did Caden, Hale, or Devon put on ? If you do not buy into what I have said that's ok, but lis...

Re: Depth Chart conjecture with shifting back to 3-4 base defense

I did a quick compare of the 2018 roster to the 2019 roster. Here's what I found: We had 10 LBs in 2018 who returned in 2019 - HALF of them moved to DE in 2019 We had 8 DEs in 2018 who returned in 2019 - HALF of them moved to DT, one to TE So we had half of our returning LBs and DEs moved UP to a p...

Re: Depth Chart conjecture with shifting back to 3-4 base defense

The D.line that return were pushed around a lot last season, in the beloved 3 man front you need tough people that can hold gaps those returning will need to improve a lot, With that front you need real good linebackers, on that list I do not see that, maybe they can get faster, stronger and tackle...

Re: Depth Chart conjecture with shifting back to 3-4 base defense

If Metzinheimer and Munos are the starting middle linebackers, we are in trouble. They struggle with lateral movement and just a step slow. That is a worry if we run a 3 man front you must have good linebackers, unless some kids really step up that could be a problem, but kids can change with off s...

Fun to look at. I feel good about the OL for 2020. Our good young guys will be another year bigger, stronger, and more experienced.

If we are going to judge how good these coach's are based on what scheme they run , that will be a error, because last season we had a huge lack of strength on the D. front line people, and one good linebacker.

This increased amount is a great thing, but keep in mind that the increase can not just go to Football, and men's basketball. I would hope that the increase would tone down the money games we play, but I doubt they will no longer played.
