    Don't you remember...Chinander isn't going to change his defense whatsoever based on the offense we're playing against. He's going to line up with 8 DBs against all power sets, and 10-man fronts when the offense goes 5-wide.RollingLaugh

    Predicting ucf will hang in the 4th. They’ll be the better conditioned team even without the depth.

    There are some posters that should come back and choke on their ‘critique’ of Chin. His defense is going toe to toe with a big boy.

    Look at the recruiting profiles of UCFs D starters. Not scrubs, but def lightly regarded. These UCF kids have responded to good coaching.

    First thing the defensive staff has to do is set the mind set of our current roster...

    No more pillow fighting in practice.

    At the start of November UCF was 33rd in total defense and 25th in scoring defense. They fell apart in their last few games for some reason but have come back around.

    Didn't Tommy Armstrong say Riley would yell on the way to practice "Time for recess!"?
