    That's about as big of a fluff piece as I've seen in a while. Just show me on the field.

    We could improve by a staggering 10 ppg on defense, and we'd still be dead last in the PAC12.

    Am I detecting some skepticism here?

    I hope Webb is at least half right. having a D squarely in the middle of the conference would be a GIGANTIC improvement.

    Improving to 7th or 8th in the league would be nice for this fall.

    The first step is Webb actually stepping up.

    Stop setting unrealistic goals.

    I didn't proclaim it a goal or an expectation. I merely commented that it would be a nice improvement for this fall.

    Regardless of the skepticism we fans will read the quotes, it's definitely a good thing if we're seeing belief.

    That's different than confidence, though. Confidence only comes from actual success. This defense absolutely needs a couple good games to start the season to give them confidence they can build upon.

    We only need to improve by about 25 points.

    You can get a good chunk of that just by being more efficient on offense to keep the defense rested and fired up. I don't know that we can get to the point where we're considered "good" this year, but I believe that good coaching in all 3 phases will get everything looking "mediocre".
