This is exactly what was said at today's press conference about the defense

Post by aggies22 » January 16th, 2020, 2:02 pm

On what defensive changes will be made in 2020:

Frank Maile: “It's going to look similar to what you saw in 2018. So we're going to be a multiple odd front. A three-four defense is what we're going to be running, with the ability to get into some of the even fronts, with different coverages.”

Stacy Collins: “We really want to bring the attacking style of defense back. Hard emphasis on the takeaways. We were fortunate in 2018 to lead the nation in takeaways. Three-and-outs, get up, get ourselves off the field, get the offense a chance to get back on, change those paces, put the stress on other defenses, TFLs and sacks. Then playing great red zone defense, force some field goals down there, blocking those field goals. That’s our blueprint. That’s the blueprint we’ll stay with the overall goal of doing everything we can to help win as a full team – offense, defense and special teams.”

Gary Andersen: “One thing that we’ve really been able to do that enables us to become more multiple in that area is what we recruited a year ago. All those young linebackers are now growing and maturing. You saw some of them get many opportunities last year. You saw some young faces hop in those spots. Frank and Stacy and the whole defensive staff will do a great job. Those linebackers have great coaching with Justin and Bojay, they’ll be in a tremendous spot to be able to get better as young players quickly. Like they said that’s very important, our ability to be able to play as a team – team offense, team defense, team special teams – is so key. These guys know that, our whole staff knows that. Every week that could change. It’s different when you play Air Force as a team concept than when you play another team. Matching the scheme is something these guys have done a great job in a short time.”
