HZ, Bama may use a 3-4, but it sure ain't passive plus their elite players aren't slow by a long shot. Not a good example to use. I'm not against the 3-4 per se, just don't like the way it's being implemented on the field. My base question is valid and I really would like to know when the last FCS champ used such a passive defense. The games I've watched have all been heavy on pressure defense.

good to read that a few posters are fully realizing the main thrust I've commented on all season long. The size issue on the DL. Our guys played their hearts out, but just couldn't make headway. That's part of the reason why the version of the 3-4 D we employed was a complete failure. I even went as far( in another thread looking ahead to 2019) as to question about the Huge guy from IMG Volino!! Size matters even if our big body just goes low and clogs up the center of the line disrupting their Oline scheme.

the question of players that don't hit the turf is downright a bummer. I rarely if ever read anything about many guys who might have played, especially with the new redshirt rule. I believe many of us not in the area would love to get any information about how guys look in practice. joe c's reference to Paoletti's ability was an example where he only saw him in a red top throw some balls. At some point earlier in the season I read on here that he was running the scout teams( probably Henderson as well) and looked good???? If he had the talent, he couldn't have done worse than what we saw in the last few games. I'd wager the kid has the toughness to handle, like Henderson, to have handled the job and not been ruined for the rest of his career with 4 years remaining.

Will Rocco ever come out and fill in his thoughts to us fans about a lot of these kids that saw little to no playing time? Will the real story about Wade ever be revealed since it DIRECTLY may have cost us a shot at a better O with a real opportunity at deception. Just the few plays Henderson was in showed us the possibilty of an EXCITING offense. Man, I was bummed out when he got pounded due to our weak Oline. Is Spruill gone- silence prevails!! Unfortunately an emotional spur of the moment decision by him could have cost us the backup to Kane when he got injured that we dearly needed.
If we could get some valid information coming from the staff or the athletic dept. or from those who've got solid sources, we'd all get a feel for everything that's going to come up from now. Certainly there should have been or scheduled to be a Q&A with the press/bhtc.

Tenn, some information rightfully belongs within the staff and locker room. Fans are always curious, but some things should remain private- my opinion but as a military officer I often had to make decisions on what info to make public and what needed to remain behind closed doors. Just the right thing to do. The Spruill situation currently falls within legal system and could take months before resolution. Who knows how that will be resolved but probably not in the picture for next years team as a minimum. Need to recruit for crucial depth at RB position.

Agree with you and HZ about needed size on DL and I'll add quickness also required in order for any defense, 3-4 or 4-3, to be effective.

On the DL we do have 2 incoming commits in the 6-4,290 range in Nance and Coomer. Lets keep an eye on them if they make their way to Newark in the Spring or Summer.

Like others have said the 3-4 doesn't work when you don't have a big NT or a NT who can take on a block or two and help the LBs out.

I have so many questions for Rocco but I will limit my list to three:

1.) Why didn't you go to Paoletti or Henderson once we knew PK was immobile with a knee injury.
2.) Why didn't you make any changes during the break?
3.) What do you look for in the new OC.

C, I completely understood Coach R’s reason for using the 3-4 D and had no problem with it per se. my frustration was only with the very passive nature it was implemented. I’ve always believed in playing fast, downhill pressure defense trying to force the action, not simply giving ground and reacting to what the offense wants to do.
